  • Speaker’S Statement: Britain's Place in the World 15 Oct 2019

    I will in just one moment. The reality is that, of the seven Bills paraded as the centrepiece, five were exactly the same as the ones that have just been dropped and one is the same as the one that the Government would not introduce because they did not think it would win.
