Ivan Lewis never rebelled against their party in this parliament
May I associate my party with the comments that have been made about Lord Molyneaux? As the Secretary of State has said, economic progress and political stability in Northern Ireland are inextricably linked. Does she agree that the unravelling of the Stormont House agreement would be an unmitigated disaster for economic and political confidence in Northern Ireland, and that now is the time...
Does the Secretary of State intend to convene urgent all-party talks in an effort to put the Welfare Reform Bill back on track? By what date must the Bill be passed, if the Executive rather than civil servants are to set next year’s budget in Northern Ireland?
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, when she last met representatives of the Police Federation of Northern Ireland.
