Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: G20 17 Nov 2014

    Would my right hon. Friend’s reportedly robust private conversations with President Putin be even more persuasive if it was seen that Britain is rearming?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Chagossian Resettlement 28 Oct 2014

    A previous Father of the House and great friend of mine, Sir Bernard Braine, was a passionate advocate of the rights of the inhabitants of Diego Garcia when the whole idea of turning it into a base was launched. In his memory, may I say that I very much hope that the guarantees that he received from the British Government of the time about looking after those people will be fulfilled?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: EU Council, Security and Middle East 1 Sep 2014

    Does the Prime Minister recognise that one of the reasons why there are misguided British jihadists fighting in Arabia is the folly of those in the Gulf and in the west who first encouraged and then supported a Sunni rebellion against the Syrian Alawites? We must avoid, under the banner of democracy, intervening in a religious civil war that has already lasted for 1,300 years.
