The week in Westminster: June 3rd – June 7th

It's all about Monday this week. After that you may as well just pack up and go home. The Commons sees a spat over the energy bill, as Lib Dems kick up a fuss over a missing renewable energy target. Then in the Lords the gay marriage debate kicks off, horrifying liberals and those who believe in the directly elected clout of parliament's lower House… Maybe something to mention in Thursday morning's committee on Lords reform. Remember that?
