Small victories

Nadine Dorries' 10-minute bill on reducing the time limit for termination of pregnancies and introducing a 'cooling off period' to make it more difficult to get an abortion just got defeated by about 80 votes.

Later on, MPs get the chance to set up a commission to look into the Iraq war and its aftermath, and according to the schedule, that is followed by Paul Burstow talking about the recognition of Cheam by the Post Office.

I think only about a quarter of M.P's turned up to vote on it.

It was a very muddled bill.

About half of MPs turned up to vote on it. Interesting party breakdowns on the vote.

Also interesting to see who did and did not turn up from the Labour side.
