Queen's Speech — Debate (5th Day) (10 Dec 2008)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...the debate about the key partnership we want to see between central government, local government and local communities.

Paul Goodman: ...to bodies such as the Cordoba Foundation and the Muslim Brotherhood. My noble Friend Baroness Neville-Jones made a similar critique in her report "Uniting the Country".

Immigration: Detention Centres (17 Jun 2008)

Do we not need to get our policy right and clear in...
