Recent appearances

  • School Holidays (Meals and Activities) Bill 19 Jan 2018

    Will the Government also use research from pilots that the voluntary sector led last year, when 10,500 meals were served in my constituency?
  • RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day 18 Jan 2018

    My hon. Friend makes a powerful case for how much has changed locally. This debate is all about the power of education, and that has a huge impact in my constituency and across the country, which is why the work of the Holocaust Educational Trust is so important.
  • RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day 18 Jan 2018

    I thank the hon. Gentleman for speaking about Nicholas Winton. Last year, we celebrated, and in fact made a film about, the children who survived and were brought to Stoke-on-Trent because of Nicholas Winton. Those children had no connection at all to our city, but have gone on to be huge ambassadors for it and for our country. That should be applauded at every opportunity.
