David Lammy has said Boris Johnson’s bid to fast track his Brexit bill through Parliament means MPs won’t have enough time to scrutinise it properly. Lammy said ‘giving MPs so little time to scrutinise one of the most consequential pieces of legislation we’ll vote on is as transparent as it is cynical’.

But while fellow Labour MP Kate Hoey was quizzing the Prime Minister on what reassurances he could give to the people of Northern Ireland, Mr S couldn’t help but notice a certain MP busily tapping away on his phone.

Mr S hopes that the MP for Tottenham was making notes on the withdrawal bill…

Update:

David Lammy has just confirmed that he wasn’t reading the withdrawal bill…
