through. others have been the great reform act, the lloyd george budget of 1909. those were governments of the left facing a conservative dominated house of lords. now the lords is more party political balance. the blair and brown governments faced confrontation with the lords of anti—terrorism measures and things like that all the time. and the need to respond to defeat and to negotiate and sometimes back down was well understood on the labour side and fairly familiar. for conservatives this is quite new. so the coming together of those two things makes it feel very important to the government but in some respects it is actually fairly routine and i think, as i have said, the lords will probably be back down, so it is not going to be one of those historic confrontations. and that key question is, to backbenchers wanted back down on this, or do backbenchers privately support what the lords is asking for? meg russell. it was a special parliamentary day on wednesday. philip hammond presented his first budget. and, curiously, it was also his last budget, at least his last one

move over george osborne, fake could be another former politician in journalism. alex salmond is part of a group that wants to take control of the scotsman newspaper. he says he wants it to be more pro—scotland. alex partridge. and finally, ministers like to show they're being straight with mp5. and so it was when boris johnson appeared before the foreign affairs committee. i don't want to be misleading. you're doing a very good job of it. on the contrary, i don't think the committee could possibly be misled by anything i have said since i haven't said anything on... laughter. exactly! a rare example of a politician not only failing to answer a question but making a feature of it. and that's it. but dojoin keith macdougall on bbc parliament on monday night at 11pm for a full round up of the day here at westminster. but for now, from me, mandy baker, goodbye. good afternoon. for the vast majority it is a beautiful crisp autumn day, get out and enjoy it if you can. plenty of sunshine out there. this was the scene in argyll & bute, sunny spells. showers have been wintry over high

, will be waving my st georges flag. laughter. that was a reference to the tweet she sent in 2014 about a terraced house flying three england flags for which she was sacked by ed miliband. and the hand—holding was of course donald trump taking theresa may's hand at the white house. but it was her first question which raised eyebrows. damian green is currently being investigated by the cabinet office over allegations about his past behaviour. can i ask the first secretary of simple point of principle? is he happy to be held to the same standards in government that he required of others when he was in opposition? the secretary. yes, lam. i think all ministers should respect and obey the ministerial code and i actually think that that is a very important part of confidence in public life. i merely wondered if he remembered the question asked at prime minister's questions almost 17 years ago, whenjohn prescott stood in for tony blair, and whether he could answer that same question today. so, what is the question? the question is this, what percentage of new nurses recruited in the past 12

backbencher in 13 years, george osborne harked back to a commons vote in 2013, when mps rejected david cameron's plans to take part in airstrikes against president assad's forces. i think we are deceiving ourselves in this parliament if we believe that we have no responsibility for what has happened in syria. the tragedy in aleppo did not come out of a vacuum, it was created by a vacuum, a vacuum of western leadership, of american leadership, british leadership. i take responsibility as someone who sat on the national security council throughout those years. parliament should take its responsibility because of what it prevented being done. meanwhile, a labour mp warned about the activities of russia. i don't think we have even begun to wake up to what russia is doing when it comes to cyber warfare, not only their interference, now proven in the american presidential campain, probably in our own referendum, we don't have the evidence, but i think it is highly probable. certainly in the french election, they will be involved, and there are already concerns that they have been interfering
