Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Ukraine (Flight MH17) and Gaza 21 Jul 2014

    Thank you, Mr Speaker. It is not the first time I have been confused with my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham (Lyn Brown). I am not surprised that the Prime Minister has been called to be here for much longer than normal. He has tried to conflate two very important statements into one, but I am sure he knew that. Nobody with any sense would object to the UN Security Council’s call...
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Ukraine (Flight MH17) and Gaza 21 Jul 2014

    Yes, Mr Speaker. The Prime Minister said that flight MH17 was shot down by an SA-11 missile fired by separatists. What evidence does he have? Those systems can be used only by those of the most highly trained calibre, who would either have come from the Russian Government or been supported by the Russian Government. Does he have any information about that?
  • Written Answers — Home Department: Animal Experiments 1 Jul 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made towards ending the testing of household products and ingredients on animals; and if she will make a statement.
