    Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill - 2nd reading – Esther McVey. Legislation
  • Sexual Harassment in Parliament 30 Oct 2017

    I am delighted to hear that the Leader of the House will extend these measures to other forms of abuse. Will that include those MPs who go on rallies endorsing the lynching of other MPs? It is an absolute disgrace that senior MPs go about their business inciting violence against female MPs.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Public Sector Pay 24 Oct 2017

    I am older and, I hope, wiser. Like all the ladies who are at my age, I am just hitting my stride and coming of age.
