Harestock children visit Parliament

Steve Brine welcomed a group from Harestock Primary School to Parliament on Tuesday 10th January.

The school took advantage of Parliament's Education Service to experience the trip, and their local MP was on hand to answer questions from the group.

The session took place between two Commons votes, and Steve was able to demonstrate to the children how MPs vote in the lobbies, and how the telling works.

Speaking afterwards, Steve said: "I say time and again how hosting youngsters here in Parliament is the best part of my job, and I really enjoyed today's session, in particular demonstrating exactly how we vote.

"The Harestock children were, as ever, an absolute pleasure to have here, and they are a credit to their school and their parents."

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)
Steve Brine: I simply say to the hon. Gentleman, who has not been present for the debate, that that point has been made. I also point out that we are giving £16 billion of ring-fenced public health spending to councils in England, which is significant. However, I shall come back to his point if he will bear with me. To achieve the ambitions in the plan, we need to recognise that smoking is...

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)
Steve Brine: I thank the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson), my ministerial shadow and my friend—she certainly is that. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Rother Valley (Sir Kevin Barron) on securing this important debate. The Backbench Business Committee was an excellent innovation that arrived in this House at the same time as me—there is no correlation...
