Recent appearances

  • Vagrancy Act 1824 - Question 17 May 2023

    My Lords, is the Minister aware that the Vagrancy Act 1824 was introduced because many soldiers who had fought in the Napoleonic Wars had no employment and resorted to begging? As far as I know, from our recent war in Iraq, no vagrants are now begging. Does the Minister not think that he ought to catch up with what has happened in the last 200 years?
  • Written Answers — Department for Education: Further Education: T-levels 31 Mar 2023

    To ask His Majesty's Government how many of entrants for T Level examinations in 2022 were studying in FE colleges.
  • Public Order Bill - Commons Amendments and Reason: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) 28 Mar 2023

    Would the Minister answer a question? In a situation where there is a protest preventing traffic, which is very grave and serious, and there are two people young people involved in it, if the police decided to use their power to strip and search, what would they expect to find on those two young people?
