Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Young Offender Institutions: Discipline (27 May 2016)

Mike Penning: The table below provides the reasons additional days were added as a result of adjudications to sentences served by children under the age of 18 in each year since 2010.

Debate on the Address: The Economy and Work (26 May 2016)

Shabana Mahmood: It is a pleasure to speak in the Queen’s Speech debate today if only for three minutes. As many people, both inside and outside this House, have remarked, this speech has felt a bit like a damp squib, or, as my hon. Friend the Member for Stalybridge and Hyde (Jonathan Reynolds) said, all filler and no killer. Perhaps that is because all eyes are on the referendum. It is astonishing...

Mental Health: Ensuring Equal Access to Mental and Physical Healthcare - Motion to Take Note (26 May 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, for tabling the debate.

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future in the European Union (26 May 2016)

I am not the oldest member—fortuitously—but all older members will be stretched and tested by the changed nature of this chamber.
