Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick), who brings an awful lot of professional experience to the debate, given his career in the fire service.

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Tom Pursglove: I could not have put it better myself. We all share the sentiment of “all power to the hon. Gentleman’s elbow” in making sure we get this on the statute book.

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

I cannot fathom how anybody could think it appropriate to verbally or physically...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Tom Pursglove: I absolutely share that sentiment.

This issue shows the House at its best. All too often people see the House in a bickering and adversarial...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Tom Pursglove: It is a pleasure to follow the many thoughtful and informed speeches we have heard this evening, and it is always a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), who speaks with great passion on these matters—and always manages to do so without many notes, which I for one find very impressive. I am regularly asked by constituents what progress is being...
