Recent appearances

  • Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal 20 Jan 2015

    The hon. Gentleman and I have agreed on a number of foreign policy and defence issues, but can he not see that recent events, even on NATO’s border, again remind us of the importance of retaining the ultimate insurance policy in order to help keep Britain and its allies safe?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya 20 Jan 2015

    Do not the vicious civil war in Libya, the high number of casualties and the fact that the Parliament has had to take refuge on a Greek car ferry prove that there is a deficit of analysis at the centre of our foreign policy-making process?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions 20 Jan 2015

    Given this country’s historic strength in soft power and its potential to further our foreign policy objectives, has the time not come to reconsider funding cuts to soft power institutions such as the BBC World Service and the British Council, as well as others?
