Kurdistan Region of Iraq — [Hannah Bardell in the Chair] ( 7 Feb 2024)

Violence Reduction, Policing and Criminal Justice (15 Nov 2023)

Jack Lopresti: His Majesty’s Gracious Speech to both Houses of Parliament was most illuminating, in my view, and serves as an excellent statement of intent from His Majesty’s Government.
