Recent appearances

  • Council of Europe — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] 18 Apr 2018

    Does the hon. Lady agree that one important point that has not yet been mentioned is that each member of the Council of Europe is a parliamentarian who has been elected in their own country? That cornerstone of democracy is so important to the Council of Europe.
  • Petition - Proposal to Sell Quibell Fields: Livestock Worrying: Sussex 17 Apr 2018

    My constituency lies in Scotland and faces the same problem as my hon. Friend’s. Does my hon. Friend agree, therefore, that this is a UK-wide problem, and that the effect on individual farmers is enormous and often missed in the statistics? These farmers take great care of their sheep and the financial loss is huge, but so is the loss to the structure of the flock.
