Let us all work for that. A large number of countries have...

EU: UK Membership — Question (22 Oct 2012)

Middle East and Afghanistan (23 Oct 2007)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...valuable EU Committee report on the Middle East peace process with this debate. We have had two excellent maiden speeches.

Last Friday night, in Bradford, I was interested to hear about a speech that she had given...
