Laws gets on the committee...

Just a note to point out that David Laws made it on to the Financial Services Bill committee despite opposition from some Labour MPs.

Lobbydog revealed last week the opposition to his appointment to the key committee as a result of his being found guilty of breaching expenses rules.

Unusually however the Labour MPs did force a vote in the Commons on the issue last night as a result – Thomas Docherty in particular leading the way.

“This is about probity,” said Docherty. Read the full debate here. Either way, Laws journey to rebuilding his reputation begins here.
