Paul Flynn MP reports on Peter Hain's return to backbench life in the Commons dining room.
"A touching return of Peter Hain to backbench life in the Commons Dining Room this evening.
It’s rare for cabinet ministers to dine in the favourite haunt of backbenchers. It was good to see his table populated with fellow Welsh MPs.
"When the choice of bread was offered, Peter let slip that he was not used to the routine. He rejected the selected breads on offer and asked the waiter if he could have a Ryvita.
"The international waiter was non-plussed but did his best, ‘Is that a drink, Sir?’"
