Johann Lamont: ...for new, radical ideas about improving educational standards or closing the gap on health inequalities, and it will not be such a forum until we get past the constitutional question.

Lord Howe of Aberavon: ...emphasis on the absence of any coherent, comprehensive system of weights and measures. British weights and measures are in a universal mess: litres for petrol and fizzy drinks; pints for beer and milk. We use metres and kilometres for athletics and miles per gallon for cars.

My rural constituents are reliant...

Lord Rees of Ludlow: ...the agenda. I wish to say a word about this. Universities such as mine expend huge effort on outreach initiatives, but these welcome efforts are not enough to ensure real equal opportunity.

Even if their potential is high, they still will not, at age...

Business of the House: Parliamentary Representation (27 February 2014)

Andrew Percy: ...House, one can be spoken to as if it is a terrible question or as if one is an imbecile—which I may be. What do we do? We could get people interested from a young age. I was a bit odd in the sense that I was interested in politics at William Gee school in Hull—not many pupils were.
