Higher Education Cheating Services Prohibition Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 Jun 2021)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, I support my noble friend Lord Storey, who I know is extremely committed to this Bill. I commend him on his determination to push it through.

Strategy for Tackling Violence against Women and Girls - Statement (22 Jul 2021)
