Equine matters are very dear to my heart. The situation we have, which is a tripartite deal, developed before the European Union became involved. There is some...

Lord Risby: My Lords, I am not entirely sure what conclusion I have come to about a betting experience I had while attending the racing on Saturday at Newmarket. I bet on a horse called Brexit Time.
