Paulette Hamilton: Can I warmly welcome the Prime Minister to her place? This is her first Prime Minister’s question, and it is also mine.

Management of the Economy and Ministerial Severance Payments (15 Nov 2022)

Paulette Hamilton: The Conservatives crashed our economy, and mortgage rates have skyrocketed as a result of their mismanagement throughout this crisis.

Let us be absolutely clear: the power to stop these strikes, which nurses themselves do not really want, lies squarely with...
