Member for Cannock Chase (Mr Burley), who is no longer in his place, was going on about the trade unions funding the Labour party.

David Cameron: The right hon. Gentleman says we should look at the specifics. The difficulty with his specific proposal is that it would allow, for instance, someone to be a paid trade union official, but it would not allow someone to run a family business or a family shop.

Liz McInnes: The right hon. Gentleman talks about reality. My reality six months ago, before I became the MP for Heywood and  Middleton, was working for the NHS. I was also a trade union rep, and I spent an enormous amount of my time negotiating with management about trying to keep contracts in-house. Since this Government came into power, I have spent the past four years fighting against the...

EU Council — Statement (23 February 2015)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: Over many years now, there has been support for the people of Ukraine. The start of the agreement between Ukraine and the European Union goes back as far as 2007.
