Friend the Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey) said that Brexit is often what has been promised, if only we were doing it properly. I agree with that. Looking back, there are many regrets that we should all share. One is that we in this House have not worked together. We might have differences...

Fisheries Bill (21 Nov 2018)

At the moment, as we have heard, they are allowed to access only 7% of the cod...

My local fishermen welcome this Bill, broadly because its primary objective is to promote...

Derek Thomas: I shall address that issue when I talk about the apprenticeship levy, but my hon. Friend is absolutely right.
