  1. Worth noting that our newest MP, Mike Thornton, was only sworn in today, so couldn’t have voted last night. There’s a chance that his first votes could come on Thursday, when the remainder of the Report Stage and then the Third Reading of the Bill come round. Apparently Tim Farron is away so won’t be voting, but maybe Mike will be taking his place on the “rebel” list….
