Chris Bryant: ...can be achieved in saving lives can be matched by the miracles that can be achieved through really good, long-term, sustained rehabilitation.

House of Lords: Abolition — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (18 Jun 2018)

Chris Matheson: ...a pause to consider bad legislation. I find it ironic that some hon. Members—none of whom are here, I hasten to add—are happy to block private Member’s Bills in this place, such as those concerning free hospital car parking for carers or the long-term sick or, dare I say it, an urgently needed law to ban the revolting practice of upskirting, using the lame excuse that...
