Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Accident and Emergency: Food Banks (18 Dec 2013)

Gerald Kaufman: It is disgraceful that the junior Minister, having made one of the nastiest Front-Bench speeches I have heard in my 43 years in this House, has now sloped off and not bothered to listen to the views of the House.

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Accident and Emergency: Food Banks (18 Dec 2013)

Gerald Kaufman: My hon. Friend makes a very powerful point. If I may say so, as powerfully as she made it, it was made much more powerfully by St Matthew, who said in his gospel: “Unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.” That is the precise policy of this Conservative-Liberal Democrat Government. I note...

Points of Order (11 Dec 2013)
