Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Refugees and Asylum Seekers (26 Feb 2018)

Jo Swinson: I recently met refugee families at an event run by the volunteers of the Milngavie refugee action group. One woman there showed me the heartbreaking footage on her phone of injured children being removed from rubble. She had been sent the footage by her sister, who is stranded in Syria. Given how few Syrian refugees we have taken in to date, what hope can the Government give to refugees here...

Jo Swinson: Last year, a 13-year-old boy with a dairy allergy died after allegedly having cheese forced on him at school.

Women and Equalities: Workplace Sexual Harassment (22 Feb 2018)

Jo Swinson: I know from my many battles in the coalition Government—some successful, some not—that the Conservatives’ obsession with deregulation often gets in the way of protecting vulnerable workers.

We still lack clarity over the extent to which our sanctions regime will be aligned...

Aid Sector: Safeguarding (20 Feb 2018)

Jo Swinson: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement, her actions on the horrific events and her assurance that the Government’s commitment to helping the world’s poorest is undimmed. This is not only a charity sector problem, a parliamentary problem, or a Hollywood problem; it is a pervasive, persistent problem across sectors, society and the world. Vulnerable people—mostly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: New Channel Link (20 Feb 2018)

Jo Swinson: I am generally in favour of building bridges rather than walls, but may I urge the Foreign Secretary, instead of indulging in fantasy engineering projects, to focus on the important work, which he just mentioned, of building metaphorical bridges with nations that share our values, such as France and other European neighbours, in order to prevent Brexit Britain from becoming isolated and...

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Jo Swinson: A hundred years on from the first women winning the chance to vote, power in our society is still predominantly and disproportionately in the hands of men. We are a long way from equal power. Government and legislation have an important role to play, but there is also a wider task for all of us to unpick the sexism and the gendered assumptions that are woven right through our culture. Does...

Role of Women in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Feb 2018)

Baroness Brinton: ...the noble Baroness, Lady Finn, talked about the need for deeds not words.
