Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Howls of laughter in Parliament as Treasury Secretary refuses to ‘comment on leaks'” – below is their description.

HENRY DEEDES: Simon Clarke was minutes into his first big appearance at the dispatch box and already the new boy of the Treasury had the House bent over double. How they laughed. There was hootering, hollering and much slapping of knees. Even Mr Speaker rocked back in his chair and clapped his hands. Such a reception would usually be cause for cheer to a jittery, wet-behind-the-ears minister looking to make his mark. The problem for Treasury minister Mr Clarke was that the chamber was laughing at him rather than with him.
