Getting noticed

Lord Norton

Peers often complain that MPs know very little about the Lords and rarely if ever bother to come along the corridor to observe what happens.  However, in the past week, during our late-night discussions on the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill, it has been notable how many MPs have popped along to watch what is happening.  It seems to be something to do once the Commons has risen.  I noticed it again this evening.  At one point between 10.30 and 11.00 p.m.  several MPs, inculding some members of the Shadow Cabinet, were crowded below Bar.   I cannot remember the last time we attracted such attention from members of the other place.

    Well we all like a nice bedtime story and the PVSC has produced a few.

    The contrary is not the same at all. HofL really is a peaceful by way, or country track, before entering heaven, on a horse.

    Apart from watching PMQ’s when do your lot go down to the Commons?

    Perhaps they could not find the right Bar.
