Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Cyber-security 24 Mar 2015

    Following on from my right hon. Gentleman’s comments about GCHQ staff, what did he make of the Business Secretary’s comments that The Guardian Snowden publication was entirely correct and courageous, and will he outline his assessment of the effect that has had on the morale of our public servants at GCHQ?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Falkland Islands Defence Review 24 Mar 2015

    Does my right hon. Friend agree that the more far-reaching geopolitical issue of the possible involvement of Russia shows why this country must maintain its strong defence force and maintain and renew Trident to ensure that there is a strong deterrent for any world power that may be thinking of getting involved in these things?
  • Isil: Tax Avoidance (HSBC) 23 Feb 2015
