Delay? Did she waddle into the commons or something?
I think that a pregnant MP, unable to attend the Commons, is not serving their constituents beyond merely being unable to vote. They also cannot take part in debates or petition colleagues/members of the Govt in the corridors, which are significant portions of the job. We should Skype them in now? What about the surgeries they cannot hold in their constituency?
I think it is more the case of MPs electing to not serve their constituents for a time, rather than the system failing to account for the needs of pregnant members.
