What does your MP do when they're not occupying the green benches of the House of Commons? For a new series of the MPs Road Show, Dinah Lammiman finds out what backbenchers do the rest of the time.
For the first programme, she visits the Appleby Horse Fair in the company of the select committee of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister.
The committee is looking at provision for travellers and gypsies.
This is the first time a select committee has visited the rarely reported Horse trading fair in Appleby.
How are they received? Find out in the MPs Road Show.
