Hain wins parliamentary support in legal battle

Neath MP Peter Hain has won some big name political support in his legal battle against the Attorney General of Northern Ireland. An Early Day Motion has just been tabled calling for the contempt proceedings to be withdrawn.

It's being tabled by the Conservative MP David Davis who raised the case with the Speaker earlier this week. More details very shortly, but you can get a quick reminder here.
