The Commons was in recess all last week and MPs returned to Westminster today, with Defence Questions first on the agenda at 2.30pm.

Yet as the screengrab above shows, at the opening of the sitting, the Labour backbenches were occupied by a total of four MPs: a stark illustration of the disrespect which has been shown by Labour towards the House of Commons for far too long.
