Economy and Finance - Motion to Take Note (9 Jun 2016)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I welcome this opportunity to introduce an economics debate because so much has happened in recent months regarding our business and our economy.

Even though these problems remain, I would have liked to have called this...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Robin Walker: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Arfon (Hywel Williams).

I want to join the tributes paid by Members on both sides of the House...
