Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: In highlighting the fact that these are real people, the hon. Member for Bradford South (Judith Cummins) insinuates that Government Members have no understanding, which is absolute nonsense.

Higher Education Funding (11 Oct 2017)

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Approval of draft decisions under Article 352 of TFEU (10 Oct 2017)
