More on well-known issues (from the Guardian) & their full record
I would like to thank the hon. Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon) and the Minister for the sensitive manner in which they debated this important issue of domestic violence. We now move to the debate on Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs inquiry centre closures. It is a pleasure to call Ian Lavery.
I thank hon. Members for their participation in that important debate. I wish the Minister well on his road journey.
