Community and Voluntary Sector Funding — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (24 Nov 2015)

Jess Phillips: Does the Minister recognise that people capital and social capital, which he rightly points to, will not provide a rape crisis counselling service for children, no matter how much he wishes they might?

Houses of Parliament (Family-friendliness) — [Fabian Hamilton in the Chair] (10 Nov 2015)

Jess Phillips: I thank all hon. Members who gave their views today. I welcome some of the Deputy Leader of the House’s assertions, in particular around the limited holiday possibilities for the Scottish representatives. The debate will not go away today; it will continue year in, year out. For every push back from the Government Benches, we need to ask ourselves, “Why?” Nobody has died. My mother...

When I leave this place, I want to see 50:50 representation...
