Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Passport Applications (18 Jun 2014)

More than half of all calls failed to get through to the agency. The...

Opposition Day — [1st Allotted Day]: Passport Applications (18 Jun 2014)

It is important that when the reviews are undertaken, we look at new ways of improving processes so that seasonal demand is reduced. We know when people’s passports will expire.

Human Rights (North Korea) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (13 May 2014)

John Glen: My hon. Friend is making a typically insightful speech. However, the concern most people have when thinking of North Korea is about the lack of hope. Individuals in the regime may be inclined to distance themselves in some way from the leader, but there is a fear of the risks associated with doing anything differently. My hon. Friend speaks positively about the wedge of hope and the things we...
