Sir Patrick Cormack (South Staffordshire) (Con): In recognising this as theSir Patrick will be with me on LIVE AT NINE tonight on 18 Doughty Street in the second part of an interview with him about his career in politics. He was on a month ago, but we only got to 1975 during the first hour, so I asked him to come back for another programme! If you would like to catch up on the first interview with Sir Patrick, where we cover his deselection battle and his early career in politics, click HERE. He has some wonderfully funny anecdotes.
Government’s second great triumph over the previous week, may I ask whether the
Secretary of State will give the House an assurance that she will not seek to
recruit assessors from the ranks of junior doctors?
Ruth Kelly: I always enjoy the hon. Gentleman’s wit. He makes his point in his own way, but the fact is that we have to provide as much certainty as possible for energy assessors while ensuring that we meet our climate change goals and maximise benefits for consumers. I believe that I have set out a sensible way forward on that.

Sir Patrick Cormack Gets to the Nub of HIPS
I just loved this question from Sir Patrick Cormack to Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly yesterday.
