As Home Secretary, the Prime Minister was one of the first to appreciate the alarming extent of child sexual exploitation. She responded to calls from many, including from me when I was Children's Minister, to set up the historic abuse inquiry.
I asked the Minister about his odd comments on apprenticeships for 60 year old and encouraged him to meet the WASPI women as soon as possible to find how we can fund transitional measures and what they might look like.
As co-chair of the soon to be re-established All-Party Parliamentary Group for WASPI, I took part in today's packed Westminster Hall debate on #WASPI. The sheer number of MPs present is a sign of the growing strength of the campaign.
Tim Loughton MP (East Worthing and Shoreham) used one of the last House of Commons debates before the dissolution of Parliament to discuss the closures of the Crown post offices in Lancing and Shoreham.
I asked the Prime Minister at PMQs about the European Court of Justice's ridiculous ruling that employers can ban their staff from wearing religious symbols and whether she agreed with me that freedom of expression must never be snuffed out by insidious political correctness.
Having had experience of children’s Bills over the past 15 years or so, I find it interesting that they have a propensity to be hijacked by things not present on Second Reading that then become the headline in the final stages.
