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.
