Extradition (Provisional Arrest) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Power of Arrest for Extradition Purposes (8 Sep 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: My right hon. Friend is making a characteristically sensible and robust speech.

China (20 Jul 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: I very much welcome both the tone and the content of what my right hon. Friend has said today.

Sale of Arms: War in Yemen (13 Jul 2020)

Andrew Mitchell: The Minister knows that I am a longstanding critic of the policies towards Yemen of the Saudi coalition, which the British Government continue to support, but it is my purpose today not to call for an arms embargo, but rather to ensure that in granting these contentious licences UK arms export licensing regime members continue to benefit from DFID’s expertise once that Department is...
