State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: Let me carry on with my point, because I would dearly love to help the WASPI women in my constituency who find themselves in this situation.

Of my mother’s age group—those born in...

It is a very important issue, because we are in the middle of a digital revolution—in the middle of the fourth industrial revolution. The ability to...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)

Vicky Ford: I thank the Solicitor General for saying that he is going to look seriously at these points during the Committee stage.

Each of those European regulations has the strict articles—the letter of the law—and the recitals, which give guidance as to how it is to be interpreted and implemented. Will he assure me that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Charter of Fundamental Rights – Government Report (21 Nov 2017)
