The first interview was with Labour MP Lesley Laird.  The second interview was with SNP MP Stephen Gethins who was being interviewed alongside Tory MP John Lamont.  Both interviews dealt with a House of Commons vote that took place the previous evening.  The vote witnessed Scottish Conservative MPs refuse to support a Labour amendment that would have ensured the EU Withdrawal Bill would have respected the Scotland Act with regards to reserved versus devolved powers.
