Lord Lester of Herne Hill: .... But the new Lord Chancellor should in fairness be given time to be judged by her actions in office.

Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Jul 2016)

Angela Rayner: ...immediately. I would be interested to hear the Minister’s response to her idea of amending existing legislation instead of making the change in this Bill.

She has been a real friend to me and has...

Will the Minister tell us whether contingency planning is taking place for all of the possible outcomes of that nudge towards a poll? For example, does he support the convening of a council of all concerned, so that it can be discussed around a table rather than in newspaper headlines? The Secretary of State is only a few days into the...

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Adrian Bailey: I rise to support the motion. The Prime Minister said earlier that the first duty of a Government is to protect their citizens.

The Opposition cannot be ambiguous on that commitment. I fully...
