European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Sylvia Hermon: I am grateful to the right hon. and learned Gentleman for allowing me to intervene. He referred, quite rightly, to his service to the people of Northern Ireland through the Policing Board in earlier years.

Points of Order (12 Jun 2018)

Sylvia Hermon: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I am very grateful to you for allowing me to raise a point of order reflecting the concern in Northern Ireland.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Continuation of North-South co-operation and the prevention of new border arrangements (12 Jun 2018)

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Sylvia Hermon: I am listening attentively to the Secretary of State. She says that change takes time—it does—but I ask her to think carefully about the number of women who are compelled to leave Northern Ireland and to go to Scotland and England for an abortion, and who might in the future be able to go to the Republic of Ireland for an abortion. There are also women who access desperately...
