Priorities for Government (25 Jul 2019)

Boris Johnson: I struggled to discover a serious question in that, but I will make one important point that it is worth making: under no circumstances will we agree to any free trade deal that puts the NHS on the table.

Lord Hogan-Howe: the exponential rise in digital evidence sources and the number of reports of sexual offences, there has been a significant loss of resources to the police and the CPS.

Health and Social Care: NHS Workforce Vacancies (23 Jul 2019)

Matthew Hancock: Question 10 is about workforce vacancies, and I can tell the House that one workforce vacancy has just been filled, because Boris Johnson has just been elected as the leader of the Conservative party.

Lord Murphy of Torfaen: ...a founder of NATO, with the United States, and a great Foreign Secretary. We forget the role of the trade unions in improving our world and improving our country at our peril.
