    I am a little puzzled by your reference to (and I quote exactly) “Conservative MP Robert Halpern” in the text towards the head of this page (where Paul Johnson is mentioned) because the alphabetical list of MPs on the official UK Parliament website lists a “Robert Halfon” but not any “Robert Halpern”.

    Can you de-mystify me, please.
