Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department for International Development: Syria 25 Mar 2015

    To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, pursuant to the Answer of 29 January 2015 to Question 221760, what assessment she has made of the ability of Syria's neighbouring countries to manage the safety and security of (a) Syrian refugees with urgent medical needs, children and victims of torture and sexual violence and (b) other Syrian refugees.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Aid Dependency 18 Mar 2015

    In the last year of the previous Government we spent 56 million on private sector development. That is projected to rise exponentially to 1.8 billion. Rather than the Conservative party’s ideological approach of trickle-down economics, should not that investment be made on the promise of decent work, fair pay, good conditions and the right to join a trade union?
