      It’s a private members’ bill that does not have government support; normally I wouldn’t make much of it, but there has been some agitation to give more prominence to such bills lately so… we’ll have to see what happens.

    Are MPs still able to claim £15 each day off a price of a meal while at Westminster? How many people have been referred to foodbanks since MPs have been on their hols? Why will most politicians not discuss a “living wage” in Parliament?
