Hague on Gove getting stuck in toilet

The new Leader of the Commons, William Hague responds to the suggestion from his Labour opposite number Angela Eagle that Michael Gove got stuck in the toilets on his first day in his new role as Chief Whip.

Mr Hague joked that knowledge of who was in the toilets in the voting lobbies was important for chief whips so "I take this as evidence that he was carrying out his duties very assiduously".
