Three's a crowd

MPs on Parliament's Welsh affairs committee are continuing their inquiry into globalisation but apparently struggling to persuade committee members to show up for it.

The committee has 11 members, but its quorum is three - which is also the total of MPs present for today's session and other recent hearings.

The parliamentary diary is rather crowded at times but this attendance suggests that many members of the committee have other priorities when it comes to an inquiry first announced in November 2006 and now dragging into its second year.

A couple have even been kicked off the said committee!
It says a lot in my opinion about how much interest they really have in business such as this.
How many I wonder went on the all expenses paid junket??
