Recent appearances

  • Salisbury Incident: Further Update 14 Mar 2018

    We should all be thanking God today that it is my right hon. Friend in her place and not the so-called alternative. I am not expecting my right hon. Friend to comment on the detail, but this morning residents in Hyde road in Gillingham in my constituency saw the Metropolitan police and the Army in place, the street in lockdown, and vehicles and items linked to the Salisbury incident removed....
  • Spring Statement 13 Mar 2018

    Talking of artificial intelligence!
  • Uk Relations: Saudi Arabia: Blagging: Leveson Inquiry 7 Mar 2018

    Can my right hon. Friend confirm that if the allegations published are true, they would be criminal acts and could be prosecuted today, without any recourse to either Leveson 2 or indeed any other inquiry? If there is a concern about access to funds, might Mr Mosley and his supporters fund such an action?
