Which MP tried to vote in their pyjamas?

Simple question: which MP once triggered a point of order in the House of Commons for attempting to vote in their pyjamas?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: Winston Churchill.

Pyjamas also feature in one of my favourite Parliamentary questions:

Commander Locker-Lampson: If pyjamas are a symbol of social superiority, ought they not to be abolished in a democratic war?
