NEW MP Jonathan Reynolds has been offering an insight into his first few days in Parliament with readers of an online magazine.
He has been sharing his experiences and thoughts in a column – Commons People – with www.progressonline.org.uk And he has been asked to continue filing regular updates throughout the coming months.
The first column points to experiences that have included entering the House of Commons for the first time – and the realisation that the Commons’ chamber is much smaller than it looks.
They also include the swapping of election stories with fellow MPs. And learning the lesson that it’s not just in the chamber you need to know where to sit – it’s in the tearoom too.
