State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Andrew Gwynne: ...likened the WASPI ladies to wasps. Wasps can be pests and nuisances. They cannot easily be bashed away and, when that happens, they get angry and come back.

I know nothing about cancer or mental health but I have some experience of progressive illnesses, where one...

Bill Presented: Duty to publish information on outcome of negotiations between member States (8 Dec 2015)

Simon Hoare: ...span of organisations. I do not know whether my inbox in my constituency of North Dorset is at odds with those of the rest of the House. I get lots of emails about lots of things—hundreds about bees over the weekend—but I cannot think of the last time I received an email about the EU. We in the House are inclined to obsess about it, and we forget that outside, people are trying...

Renegotiation of EU Membership (Devolved Administrations) (10 Nov 2015)

Stephen Gethins: ...EU’s relationship, but perhaps about changing the way we, as a member state, interact. I would like a much more formal role for the devolved Administrations. In the past, we have seen civil servants or Ministers with no direct responsibility for an issue, such as the Minister for bees, leading fisheries negotiations when the Scottish Minister was present.

Jim Shannon: ...executions on the streets of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. If this were any other part of the United Kingdom there would be a national outcry.
