Recent appearances

  • Health and Social Care: Alcohol Dependency 24 Jul 2018

    What plans the Government have to improve support for the children of alcohol-dependent parents.
  • Health and Social Care: Alcohol Dependency 24 Jul 2018

    I thank the Minister for his answer, but this is obviously a much wider problem, affecting more than just the children of alcohol-dependent parents. Will he tell the House what more can be done to ensure that people in the wider community can access that kind of help?
  • Foreign Fighters and the Death Penalty 23 Jul 2018

    Amid this whole debate, is it not absolutely essential that the perpetrators of these crimes should be brought to justice and punishment? That is the most important issue in all of this. Does the Minister not agree with that?
