LOTHIANS Labour MSP George Foulkes has quit Holyrood's "dullest" committee - so he can spend time at the House of Lords.
The former Hearts chairman has persuaded party managers to let him quit the Scottish Parliament's subordinate legislation committee - even though he was only voted on to it last week...
A parliament source said Mr Foulkes just failed to turn up to the first meeting of the committee. And since Dunfermline East MSP Helen Eadie had already resigned, telling party managers she believed her experience could be better used elsewhere, Labour was left with just one MSP present.
To think that Labour was once renowned for party discipline.
