Valedictory Debate (24 May 2024)

Tim Loughton: ...may be because I have been in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho, far away from this place, watching the incredible events of the last few days unfurl. I was able to come back here early in time to join this last hurrah, to vote on something—goodness knows what it was—just now and to speak in this valedictory debate. Many hon.

Ann Clwyd (19 Sep 2023)

Stephen Doughty: ...figure,” but do they turn out to be that way when years later we meet them in Parliament or have the privilege of working alongside them in Parliament, as I did with Ann? When I was able to join Ann in this place, she lived up to every aspect of what I had seen in her when I was a young teenager. I was Ann’s Whip for a while. She had obviously had a tumultuous relationship with Whips,...

Srebrenica Memorial Week — [Sir Robert Syms in the Chair] ( 4 Jul 2023)

Stephen Doughty: ..., Ukraine and so many other conflicts around the world. We must combat that divisive rhetoric by focusing on the things that unite us as one.

In our past careers with Oxfam, Jo and I worked on issues related to the terrible atrocities in Darfur, and here in Parliament we worked on issues...

Ukraine (15 Mar 2022)

Andrew Mitchell: ...the western world and across European states. I mainly want to talk about the humanitarian position, on which there is no need to look in our crystal ball; we can read the book of what happened in Syria. The House may recall that Jo Cox and I co-chaired the all-party parliamentary group for friends of Syria and held more than two emergency debates in the House. If we want to know what the...

Tributes: Sir David Amess MP - Tributes (18 Oct 2021)

More recently, he actually voted against the Government on leaseholder...

Pothole and Highway Repairs: Syria: Humanitarian Situation ( 3 Nov 2020)

The following Statement was made on Tuesday 16 June in the House of Commons. “Mr Speaker, before I begin, I am sure the whole House will join me in paying tribute to the memory of Jo Cox, who was cruelly murdered four years ago today.

Global Britain (16 Jun 2020)

Boris Johnson: Mr Speaker, before I begin, I am sure the whole House will join me in paying tribute to the memory of Jo Cox, who was cruelly murdered four years ago today.

Member for East Dunbartonshire (Amy Callaghan) is now in...

Valedictory Debate ( 5 Nov 2019)

Stephen Twigg: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Devon (Peter Heaton-Jones). I will start, if I may, by thanking everyone with whom I have had the honour to work in this place.

I had the privilege to serve for eight years the constituency in which I grew up and where most...

Business of the House (20 Jun 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...will be, and, more important, only fair to us—to Parliament. The Leader of the House will know that we have had a busy week. He will also know that on Tuesday we had a Back-Bench debate about the Cox report. When is he likely to table a motion for a debate in Government time? It may be necessary to change a Standing Order, so will he find a date as a matter of urgency, before the House...

Syria: Civilians in Idlib (18 Jun 2019)

Alison McGovern: The first thing that has to be said, Mr Speaker, is that, as you and I both know, it should not be me who is standing here. It should be Jo Cox, and, three years after her brutal killing, we miss her every single day. The second thing that I must do is thank you, Mr Speaker, for welcoming the surgeon David Nott to Speaker’s House to discuss his book and his work, which has included helping...

Syria: Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Alison McGovern: ...do in this House, we do best when we do it together. I want to thank the Prime Minister. I may disagree with her on many issues, but today I have admired her fortitude. Most of all, I want to thank Syrians—Syrians in the UK and Syrians elsewhere in the world who have shared with me their experience and told me what they have been through. It is they and they alone who we should listen to...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Alison McGovern: I rise to propose that the House should debate a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration—namely, the current situation in Syria and the UK Government’s approach. The need for this debate first arose last week, during recess. As we know, on Saturday 7 April, two incidents were reported of bombs filled with toxic chemicals being dropped on Douma in Syria. The...

Syria (16 Apr 2018)

Stephen Doughty: One of the last discussions I had with our murdered former colleague Jo Cox was on the need to protect civilians in Syria. We cannot fire and forget, but neither can we simply debate and talk and forget. What is the Prime Minister’s comprehensive political, diplomatic and humanitarian strategy—not just one-off military actions—to protect civilians in Syria? Does she agree that councils...

Raqqa and Daesh (24 Oct 2017)

Alison McGovern: ..., not least about the cost of inaction possibly being as great as the cost of action—a point made forcefully in the paper written by the hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat) and Jo Cox, “The Cost of Doing Nothing”.
