Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House (10 Oct 2017)

Sylvia Hermon: I am not suggesting that the Government snubbed this House, but the fact that they did not vote on lifting the pay cap left uncertainty for thousands and thousands of nurses and doctors throughout the United Kingdom. [Interruption.] If I may, I will continue. At the end of that debate when the Government did not vote, after the DUP had indicated that it would not be supporting them, there was...

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House (10 Oct 2017)

Sylvia Hermon: I listened intently to what the right hon. Lady said about the importance of procedure in this House, so how does she feel about the complete absence of DUP Members from the Chamber?

Race Disparity Audit: Bombardier (10 Oct 2017)

Sylvia Hermon: I am enormously grateful to the Secretary of State for his valiant efforts to save the Bombardier jobs in Northern Ireland. In his statement, he emphasised the fact that the British Government are working jointly and collectively with the Canadian Government; nevertheless, I am really curious—as are, I am sure, people in Bombardier and in Northern Ireland—to know how effective he...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Sylvia Hermon: Let me begin by commending the Prime Minister warmly for keeping going at her conference speech. It could not have been easy. The Prime Minister—and, I am sure, other Members of the House—will be well aware that the Good Friday agreement of 1998 was voted on by thousands and thousands of people in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and secured a majority in both Northern...
