Gordon comes out of hiding

Today is a special day in Parliament, because Gordon Brown is making a very rare appearance. In case you were wondering, the former Prime Minister has not retired; he is MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.

But having not spoken here since November 2011, his constituents might wonder if they get value for the £127,197 expenses and £66,000 salary paid since that date. His adjournment debate - on Remploy factory closures - takes place at the close of business in the main chamber.
