The model of care for a child in the first year of life is split between two parents, and that sets...

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament (1 Feb 2018)

Gavin Shuker: The hon. Gentleman was generous to me in 2010, and he is generous to me now. The second reason why I have never had a formal conversation with the Whips Office is because of the worry that this might look like a lack of professionalism or a lack of hunger. It is true that, having made the choice to support my family, it is much harder to have sharp elbows and to force my way to the front. I...

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Gavin Shuker: I have read the Secretary of State’s document published today and was perplexed that there is no reference to mutual operators.

Given that, will he or his Rail Minister commit...

Sexual Harassment in Parliament (30 Oct 2017)

Gavin Shuker: When reflecting on the comments of my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester West (Liz Kendall), will the Leader of the House also take into account that if we take a step forward here in Westminster, it will further perpetuate the gap, in terms of protection, between people who work in this place and our wider political constituencies—in other words, the culture of our political parties?
