Recent appearances

  • Salisbury Incident: Further Update 14 Mar 2018

    The horrendous incident in Salisbury has placed a huge unforeseen burden on local police. We know that the police service has faced unprecedented cuts, so I wonder whether the Prime Minister can give an assurance that the additional burden will be met from central resources and that it will not fall to the local police to pick up the bill.
  • Protection of Civilians in Afrin 12 Mar 2018

    Does the Minister agree that Turkey’s assault on Afrin was entirely unjustified and had no basis in international law? If he does, what specific steps will the Government take to ensure that Turkey is held accountable for the war crimes being perpetrated in Afrin?
  • Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention 7 Feb 2018

    Will the Minister give way?
