While it could be perceived as a dig at Boris Johnson, Bone has attempted to pass this bill, which will set in stone a formal line of succession in case a prime minister becomes ill or dies, for a few years now.
He originally raised it in 2013 during the coalition government to stop the then deputy prime minister Nick Clegg from taking power if David Cameron was unable to continue to do his job. However, it failed to attract the support of MPs because they were too busy discussing potentially having an EU referendum...
Eight years on, the bill will now schedule its second reading meaning it is one step closer to becoming law.
But people who thought it would mean Johnson would be temporarily replaced, perhaps for him to get a haircut or something, laughed:
@rosgrams @PARLYapp I will enjoy the temporary replacement of prime minister Bill.
