I am afraid that I cannot tell the hon. Gentleman offhand, but I shall certainly ensure that he and the House are told.

I am sorry that Mrs. Dorries is not in her place, but I should like to say how much I applaud her remarks on her blog:

"South Staffordshire Conservatives should be ashamed of themselves. I am disgusted. Sir Patrick has said that he will stand next time as an independent, and if he does, I would help him canvass for him" against the selected Conservative candidate

"without hesitation and regardless of what 'you will never be given a job' threats will be thrown at me by the whips."
