Would it be possible to identify which debates took place in the Lords
(why not coloured any indicators red) and the Commons (green) - apart
from this, a great site

Hi Simon - and thanks for writing.

You know, that's a pretty good idea. We'll take a look at how we could
do it.

Perhaps you could also include an indicator to make it searchable via a
'find' command? --- I'm still harboring visions of eventually assembling
this information into a dataset that one can analyze using various analytical
methods (that have specifically not been applied to the UK parliament
simply because the data isn't readily available the way it is for other
legislative bodies---notably the US Congress).
