Jo Swinson: Women’s rights are human rights and they include reproductive rights.

This weekend, we saw thousands take to the streets to protest against a further crackdown. What representations have Ministers made to their Polish...

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Jo Swinson: I thank the Prime Minister for advance sight of her statement. I welcome the joint statement that she has secured from EU leaders on Russia and, indeed, the actions of the 18 countries today. It is exactly that kind of internationalist approach that we need.

We also have a...

Bills Presented: Vote 100 and International Women’s Day (8 Mar 2018)

International Development Committee: Burma Visas (28 Feb 2018)
