Northamptonshire County Council - Statement (27 Mar 2018)

Lord Porter of Spalding: I declare my interest as chairman of the Local Government Association and leader of South Holland District Council.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Lord Porter of Spalding: There are some people who have already offered me a one-way ticket. I should clear up one minor misunderstanding in the previous comments.
