They successfully battled it out alongside lobby journalists, including the BBC’s Nick Robinson and Gary Gibbon from Channel 4 News, and Lords, for the annual event.

Ealing North MP Stephen Pound was part of the winning team, which was made up of members from all parties.

The event was held this year to raise money for the Rehab group of charities, which helps people with physical and sensory disabilities.
