Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House 12 Jan 2017

    Greater Manchester police are losing control of Rochdale town centre. Not enough priority is being given to policing begging, street drinking, antisocial behaviour and shoplifting. Surely that warrants a debate in Parliament.
  • Asylum Seekers: Right to Work 11 Jan 2017

    The hon. Lady is making a good and important speech. There are far too many asylum seekers in Rochdale—more than 1,000—which is unfair in terms of how they are shared out across the country, but I completely agree with the point that she makes about work. Does she agree that if more were allowed to work, it would help with community cohesion in places such as Rochdale?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Occupied Palestinian Territories 11 Jan 2017

    What assessment she has made of the implications of demolitions in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in 2015-16 for her Department’s policies in that region.
