House of Commons Governance (22 January 2015)

Jesse Norman: ...her own on the topic, in her own inimitable fashion. Such are the vagaries of life that, in late August last year, I was in the middle of a series of walks to raise money for two outstanding local charities, the Royal National College for the Blind in Hereford and the Midlands Air Ambulance, and I vividly recall standing at the cairn on the top of the Cat’s Back on the Offa’s...

I also welcome the...

Recall of MPs Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (19 January 2015)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: It is interesting to note that when we were dealing with the transparency of lobbying Bill, which has been mentioned, we could see that as soon as charities work together they all have to take account of each other’s expenditure.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister: Equality Commission/Community Relations Council: Merger (19 January 2015)
