NotesNews: 30 January: A report on an incident in the House of Commons stated that several members were moving rapidly towards the doors as they were being closed and an accidental collision occurred. The sitting in the House ended at 5.30am when Labour MPs had forced 22 divisions after the guillotine which ended the first stage of the debate on the Industrial Relations Bill. As the last division was being taken Labour MPs began singing The Red Flag, followed by We Shall Overcome.
