Recent appearances

  • Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill 3 Nov 2017

    My hon. Friend mentions a point I was about to raise. A battery could expire or there could be a software glitch, so maybe the clause needs to be tweaked in Committee. I wonder whether the hon. Member for Croydon North will consider that carefully if the Bill reaches the Committee stage.
  • Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill 3 Nov 2017

    My hon. Friend has used a very good example. Does he agree that another might be the purchase and consumption of alcohol? We have also increased the age at which people can purchase cigarettes. Such important changes have been proved beneficial to people’s health.
  • Representation of the People (Young People’S Enfranchisement and Education) Bill 3 Nov 2017

    On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I feel as though I have been accused of taking up a lot of time by speaking in the last debate. I made two short interventions, and I have been in the Chamber for a number of hours; the hon. Gentleman has not been. Do you think he should apologise?
