I spent two three-hour sessions in the Protection of Freedoms Bill committee today, preventing me from attending Transport Committee, where Cadence Driver Development gave evidence at my suggestion. Between Bill Committee meetings, I agreed amendments to be tabled and then took back-to-back meetings on Kashmir, banking and economic reform until returning to the committee, where I spoke on the retention of DNA from those arrested, but neither charged nor convicted.

Next, I chaired a dinner with a major bank to discuss reform before finishing the day by voting on the budget, discussing a range of constituent issues with ministers and colleagues in the voting lobbies. My day ran from 09:00 to now, 23:15. This is all quite typical for a Tuesday, and I look forward to making time for my correspondence tomorrow.

And I find the Yes2AV campaign think MPs need to be made to work harder. Hmmm. Differently certainly…
