Recent appearances

  • Opposition Day — [14th Allotted Day]: National Health Service 21 Jan 2015

    One problem last month in my local hospital, the Princess Royal university hospital, was the lack of space, and ambulances were backed up. It is not just a staffing problem; it is a spatial problem. Does the Secretary of State agree that if we had more space in A and E departments, we could get people off the streets?
  • Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Trident Renewal 20 Jan 2015

    Of course no one in their right mind would want to use these weapons. That is the whole point. Deterrence is not use; it is deterring someone from using a weapons system. The best deterrence is when nothing happens, as has happened in Europe since the second world war.
