European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

Giles Watling: I recognise theatre when I see it, particularly well-rehearsed theatre. Judging by today’s second performance, we could be in for a very long run.

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Giles Watling: It is a great pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Copeland (Trudy Harrison) in this important debate.
