Chris Grayling has finally responded to a no-deal Brexit planning question that Eddie Mair has been asking for three weeks.
The LBC presenter has been on a quest to find out whether the Transport Secretary took personal responsibility for a decision to award a £14m ferry contract to a company that has no ships.
He has been posing the question to the Department for Transport every weekday - but had not heard back.
It reached the point where Eddie introduced the “Chris Grayling Jar of Truth” - in which he added £1 every time the question was ignored.
But on Tuesday that changed.
LBC’s Theo Usherwood spoke to Mr Grayling as MPs prepared to vote on a number of amendments to Theresa May’s Brexit plan B.
And he put the question directly to him.
