Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (10 Sep 2022)

Darren Henry: I echo the sentiments of many right hon and hon. Members. It is always a special moment when all parties in the Chamber unite together and speak with one voice.

My thoughts and those of my constituents in Broxtowe are with the royal family at this time. The Queen was loved and...

Public Advocate (No. 2) Bill (15 Jul 2022)

Darren Henry: May I suggest that, when we get to that point, the Government are clear that there are some details that need to be considered? Typical questions include how an independent public advocate should interact with investigative bodies, how we should avoid duplication, and when an independent public advocate should get involved—when a fatality has occurred, or not?

Neonatal Care (Leave and Pay) Bill (15 Jul 2022)

Darren Henry: I am a former member of the all-party group, because the subject is important to me as well, but may I make a point about work and productivity? Does the hon.

Public Bill Committee: Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Jun 2022)
