Philip Davies: ...that this is part of a bigger programme called the Girl Hub, to which DFID handed over 3.8 million.

Affordable Homes Bill (5 September 2014)

Sheryll Murray: ...disabilities. Sadly, a few years ago, when I was a local councillor, one of the occupants of one of the bungalows passed away. His wife wanted to move into another home in part because she did not want the memories of a happy marriage all around her, but also because she realised that bungalow could be made available to somebody else, and that is precisely what happened. The second...

Backbench Business: Sale of Puppies and Kittens (4 September 2014)

David Amess: ...be entering—yet again—my two rescued pugs, Botox and Lily. They are somewhat depressed after parading before the judges, year after year, and getting absolutely nowhere. I have now got them into an arranged marriage, so I think the least that they could be awarded would be the prize for best married dogs in the show. I will not mention kittens because I will leave that to my...

Opposition Day — [5th allotted day]: Infant Class Sizes (3 September 2014)

Tristram Hunt: ...hoped for a change of direction from the new Education Secretary, so I read with great interest her interview in The Sunday Telegraph, in which she explained how “we have seen the first same-sex marriages take place, which is great.” Indeed it is, but why did she seek to prevent it from happening by voting against the policy? If she really thought it was great, she would have...

Elaine Murray: ...worse when I was young—but we have not made the strides that I would have thought that we might have been able to make over the past 60 years. After all, 100 years ago, women did not even have the vote and had no right to employment after marriage.

Scottish Parliament: Commonwealth Games (Legacy) (7 August 2014)

Kenneth Gibson: ...a very tongue-in-cheek way. I was proud that Scotland chose to demonstrate that we are a nation that is tolerant and inclusive, regardless of people’s faith, race, gender or sexuality.
