Recent appearances

  • New Member: Zero Hours Contracts Bill 21 Nov 2014

    That was a very nice attempt at a smear. Will the hon. Gentleman say where that was published and where the information is, and how about naming some names? He cannot just cast that out on to the water as if it were true.
  • New Member: Zero Hours Contracts Bill 21 Nov 2014

    Does my hon. Friend agree that putting people in that position limits their ability to be economically engaged, because they cannot plan or apply for mortgages and all the rest of it? That might be to the benefit of the exploitative employer, but it does nothing to help the economy or people by giving them security of employment.
  • New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill 21 Nov 2014

    Perhaps the hon. Gentleman would like to clarify, for the benefit of the House, whether his party is in favour of a private insurance-backed approach to health care or whether it actually believes in the NHS.
