Today the Deputy Prime Minister, Dominic Raab, introduced the Government’s proposals for a new UK Bill of Rights, a key part of the Government’s 2019 manifesto. The Deputy PM came to Parliament earlier today to set out how he intends to deliver human rights reforms across the country.
This evening, I had a chance to welcome the Government’s new legislative agenda that was set out in last week’s Queen's Speech. While delivered by the Prince of Wales, this speech sets out Her Majesty’s Government’s objectives for the forthcoming parliamentary session.
This evening, the Nationality and Borders Bill continued its passage through the House of Commons as we considered amendments proposed by the House of Lords. While the debate was heavily oversubscribed, I had the pleasure of intervening during the speech of my colleague Andrew Mitchell.
As many will know, the UK continues to act as host of the COP26 summit until next October. During that time the President, Alok Sharma MP, continues to champion our commitment to tackling the Climate Crisis.
