Recent appearances

  • Business of the House: Scotland within the UK 13 Oct 2014

    Given the enthusiasm of the Scottish electorate during the referendum campaign, how will the Secretary of State maintain the enthusiasm, engagement and transparency of the process, so that on 30 November it does not look as though we have delivered a fix, instead of something that has support among the Scottish people?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel/Palestine 22 Jul 2014

    What steps his Department is taking to support projects which foster co-operation and co-existence between Israelis and Palestinians.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Israel/Palestine 22 Jul 2014

    We realise that peace is not just about a settlement between Governments, but about people living together. I know that the Foreign Office invests significant resources in single community projects, but in order to build up confidence and break down barriers between the peoples in the region will the Minister look at how we can support cross-community initiatives?
