Conservatives Harriett Baldwin and Mark Garnier (pictured) will pitch the idea to the back-bencher’s business committee this afternoon.

It comes after Garnier, Treasury select committee member, offered Baldwin his support in securing a full debate in the House of Commons during last week’s Westminster hall debate secured by her.

During the debate, Garnier said: “The interest that I have encountered is certainly unprecedented.”
