The Palace of Westminster must be refurbished swiftly, safely and at a sensible cost to taxpayers. Following the excellent restoration of the Elizabeth Tower and the cast iron roof, now is the time to make headway on the vital works.

In a single and undivided United Kingdom, Her Majesty’s Government has a duty and responsibility for the condition of the whole nation. Until a bridge is built, only water, not a border, should sit between the people of Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

India is going to be one of our strongest allies in the 21st century. Both of our great nations will benefit from an ambitious free trade agreement, enabled by Brexit, negotiated by the Trade Secretary and delivered by the Prime Minister.

The United Kingdom is an extended family of a nation, bound together by shared blood and kinship. It has had a marvellous history for many centuries and under Boris Johnson's leadership is on the cusp of further greatness.
