They rarely agree about anything, but MPs from different parties were singing from the same hymn sheet during this afternoon’s virtual House of Commons debate around extending the Stamp Duty holiday.
The debate was triggered by an online public petition that wants to see a six-month extension to the existing deadline of 31 March.
