Further finds from Hansard trawling

Perhaps it is just me being infantile, but I am enjoying the fact of questions about gambling being asked by Clive Betts:

Mr. Betts: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what discussions his Department has had with representatives of the bingo industry on levels of taxation in the industry in the last three months

Elsewhere, the deeply obscure member for Rochford and Southend East asked this:

James Duddridge: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent discussions she has had on the classification of anabolic steroids

Having found a photo of him, he does not look like an iron pumper, so there you are.

Elsewhere, Lord Alton having returned from Pyongyang, he is again asking rather dull questions:

"Lord Alton of Liverpool To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their assessment of bilateral relations with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea".

He must have been working on the wording of that one for days.

Malloch-Brown's reply is to dull to bear repeating.
