Speeches made during Parliamentary debates are recorded in Hansard. For ease of browsing we have grouped debates into individual, departmental and legislative categories.
e-Petitions are administered by Parliament and allow members of the public to express support for a particular issue.
If an e-petition reaches 10,000 signatures the Government will issue a written response.
If an e-petition reaches 100,000 signatures the petition becomes eligible for a Parliamentary debate (usually Monday 4.30pm in Westminster Hall).

These initiatives were driven by Andrew Stephenson, and are more likely to reflect personal policy preferences.
MPs who are act as Ministers or Shadow Ministers are generally restricted from performing Commons initiatives other than Urgent Questions.
Andrew Stephenson has not been granted any Urgent Questions
Andrew Stephenson has not been granted any Adjournment Debates

The Bill failed to complete its passage through Parliament before the end of the session. This means the Bill will make no further progress. A Bill to confer upon the prosecution a right of appeal against judges’ decisions to grant bail; and for connected purposes
