During the Committee stage of Lord Lester's private Cohabitation Bill:
The Minister (Lord Brett): Before I move to the amendment, perhaps I should declare an interest as a cohabitee; a situation not entirely of my choosing, as I have asked the lady in my life to change that situation on several occasions. To date, my blandishments have not been successful, but mutual friends have said that that shows good judgment on both our parts. However, as we put things on the record in this House, and I make that declaration, its publication in Hansard may—who knows?—help to change that situation.

Those who have had to report the Minister will know what I mean when I suggest that his Hansard proposal might well do the trick, because it's entirely feasible that when he's asked her before she has had absolutely no idea what he was talking about.

Indeed, it's a wonder that the noble Lord can get complete even the most basic tasks of 21st century life without some sort of 24 hour transcription service. His friends must find reading Hansard a bit like discovering Joey Deacon has thoughts and feelings.
