Recent appearances

  • Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Trident 24 Nov 2015

    I have visited the Barrow shipyard, so I totally understand the passion of the workforce and the commitment to the Successor programme project. It was not only Major Attlee who supported the nuclear deterrent but figures on the left of the Labour party, including Nye Bevan, who said that we should not walk “naked into the conference chamber”.
  • Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Trident 24 Nov 2015

    Will my hon. Friend give way?
  • Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Trident 24 Nov 2015

    My hon. Friend will understand, as a neighbouring MP, how important the Trident successor programme contract will be to places such as Sheffield, in terms of jobs in the supply chain. The tone of today’s debate underlines the importance of the debate on Trident and the fact that it is a UK matter. It deserves a UK-oriented focus, not a narrow, nationalist outlook.
