David Lidington hardly ever rebelled against their party in this parliament
I refer the honourable Member to the answer I gave my Hon. Friend the Member for Brighton, Kemptown (Simon Kirby) on 11 September 2014, official report, column 717W.. Hansard source (Citation: HC Deb, 11 September 2014, c717W)
The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right Hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond) met his Advisory Group on Human Rights on 25 March. The meeting of the Advisory Group (and its four sub-groups) is an opportunity for a full and frank discussion of the most pressing human rights issues. As such, the agenda and outcome of the meeting remain private.
