Delegated Legislation: Defibrillators in Public Areas (16 Jan 2017)

Maria Caulfield: I understand the Minister’s concern about whether this should be mandated.

Gordon Marsden: ...a hypothetical issue, it is worth making the point—the UCU has done so—that there are already real concerns about pension scheme deficits in certain colleges, and that the regulation, if the issue is not addressed, could cause alarm with lenders and raise interest rates, which could of course negate the stated aim for the introduction of insolvency regulations and preclude the...

Lyn Brown: .... A gunman opened fire and both Mr Khan and the driver of the vehicle were killed instantly.

UK Nationals Imprisoned Abroad — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (20 Dec 2016)

Mark Durkan: ...about a series of instances in which someone has been treated appallingly. Andy Tsege was tried in absentia, which is a scandal in itself.
