Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Modern Slavery Bill (4 Nov 2014)

Jim McGovern: I, too, was milk boy, and a butcher’s boy and a paper boy, in my younger days. My hon. Friend has raised the subject of tips many times over the years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Jun 2014)
