Speaker’s Statement: The National Health Service (23 Oct 2019)

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Luciana Berger: ..., and it is regrettable that the Government will not even confirm that funds that the European Union has already committed to Liverpool to the tune of millions of pounds will be guaranteed post Brexit. Young people, whose lives will be most affected by the decisions taken in this place, should be allowed a say on their future. New facts have come to light. The lies of the leave campaign...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (8 Jan 2019)

Luciana Berger: This week, I received correspondence from a small business owner and constituent of mine who shared his fears about the issues Brexit could cause his chemicals business.

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Business of the House (13 Dec 2018)

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Luciana Berger: ...the Prime Minister’s responses so far this afternoon. Does she truly believe that the people who voted to leave two and a half years ago did so in order to make our country poorer?
