Parliamentary Sovereignty and EU Renegotiations: Yemen (4 Feb 2016)

Alison Thewliss: ..., but I urge the Government to give some certainty to those in the same situation as Fahim who are ill with worry about their future.

Energy Bill [Lords] (18 Jan 2016)

Caroline Lucas: ...picture remains unchanged. At a time when we should be speeding up the deployment of renewable energy, getting serious about energy efficiency and working out how to leave the vast majority of fossil fuels in the ground, the Bill takes us in precisely the opposite direction. That is why I tabled a reasoned amendment to completely oppose it. The bulk of the Bill takes forward the oil and...
