The terrorist outrage last week reminds us of Burke’s wisdom that

“Good order is the foundation of all things”,

and further to the question raised at Prime Minister’s questions yesterday by my hon. Friend Suella Braverman and today by my hon.

It is in the authority of this place that the people’s power resides.
