Kevan Jones: If the hon. Gentleman lets me get on with my speech, I shall tell him what our position is.

I refer to the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s autumn statement, which clearly ring-fenced spending on schools,...

Recall of MPs Bill — Third Reading (2 March 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Campbell-Savours: My Lords, how can I answer that? I am at a loss. The noble Lord says that he has consulted with his colleagues on the Liberal Benches in the Commons, but I know for a fact that a number of Liberal MPs have expressed concern on whether even they were aware of what they were voting for. I say to my noble friend Lady Hayter on the Front Bench that many people behind her who support my amendments...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: STEM in Schools (2 March 2015)

Sean Rogers: I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak on this particular topic.
