Select committee shambles

From The Panel, 4:09 pm on 14 February 2019

The Parliament Finance committtee had to be unceremoniously cancelled with MPs on both sides trading barbs on whose fault it was.

A labour MP was sick and his replacement was late, so National MPs stood outside, preventing a quorum from being obtained.

We speak to former MP Chester Borrows about what goes on in these meetings and whether this behaviour is acceptable or not.
