Recent appearances

  • Business of the House 16 Oct 2014

    Will the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war report this side of the general election, or will it be like the case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce in Dickens—something we will expect in about 50 years’ time?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements 10 Sep 2014

    Will my right hon. Friend explain to the House why, with the possibility of a yes vote, finance is leaving Scotland and many businesses are thinking of leaving Scotland? Surely if the economic arguments were so good for the yes campaign, the reverse would be happening?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Ukraine (Flight MH17) and Gaza 21 Jul 2014

    My right hon. Friend has led the charge in trying to get our European friends to increase sanctions against Russia, but can he tell the House what actually influences Putin? Many people looking from the outside will feel that we are unable to change his behaviour, at least in the short term.
