Next time @DominicRaab does media pls ask why no minister has met @TheCriminalBar since strike action began? A shortage of barristers caused by low fees meant 567 criminal trials didn’t go ahead in ‘21. We can’t fix the backlog unless Govt takes action NOW to recruit & retain

Barristers are on strike following a row over legal aid.

It was an honour to walk @simonlightwood into the Commons Chamber to take his seat today after his by-election success in Wakefield on Thursday.

Proud to be part of this historic @UKLabour victory, I know Simon will be an excellent MP for Wakefield.

Conservative MP Simon Hoare says that if a Labour government were planning to break international law as the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill does they would all accuse them of "not being fit for government."

"For a Tory to have to point this out to fellow Tories is shameful."

At least half a dozen Tory MPs are talking about defecting to Labour, according to Labour insiders. Westminster was full of speculation that a defection could take place at PMQ's two weeks ago.

While it did not happen, the recent by-elections are thought to be a new trigger

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the country’s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.
