Speeches in Parliament

Speech - nine priorities for South Dorset

I congratulate the hon. Member for East Lothian (Kenny MacAskill) on an excellent, lucid speech. I thoroughly enjoy history—I think we all do—and we heard a lot of history in his speech, as well as a lot of passion.

Speech - more police needed on the beat

I really do not want to enter the blame game, but I am going to start by just reminding the House and putting it on the record that, in 2010, we did inherit a financial mess. [Interruption.] Opposition Members groan but it is a fact.

Speech - EU Withdrawal Act

Before I start, I want to say this. Two Opposition Members have called myself and other honourable colleagues “extremists”. ​I am not an extremist; I am a humble Back-Bench MP trying to deliver what the British people asked us to.
