Speeches in Parliament

Home Affairs Select Commitee - Calais Border

Watch me enable Immigration Minister, James Brokenshire MP, to admit in today's Home Affairs Select Committee that there is no link between Brexit and the ending of the 'Treaty of Le Touquet', which effectively establishes our borders in Calais. 

House of Commons - Yemen Debate

I spoke in the Chamber yesterday, during the debate on the civil war in Yemen, drawing attention to the tragic fact that about half of all children in Yemen are not in education. These children need to have some continuity in their education and if we do not have the future in mind for those children, the future of the whole country is perilous.

House of Commons - DWP Questions

During Work and Pension questions time, I asked the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions whether he could give some indication of when he will publish the draft regulations on housing benefits for 18 to 21-year-olds.
