Diana Johnson has written to PM to say it would be 'against natural justice'.
The Department of Health must not be allowed to lead a public inquiry into the contaminated blood scandal, a Labour MP has
'We have seen what happens when you put profit before people'.
A widow who unearthed vital information about the contaminated blood scandal after her husband died of HIV has warned the
Removing the counter-productive threat of criminal punishment against vulnerable women will help create an environment more conducive to reducing incidents of unplanned pregnancies and abortions - not least medically unsafe ones... In deciding how to cast their votes later today, MPs should consider all the countries that do not apply a criminal law to abortion. In states like Canada, parts of Australia, Sweden and Luxembourg decriminalisation has not led to any of the things its critics said it would.

Today marks one year since Ibrahim Magag - one of the UK's most closely monitored terrorist suspects - absconded from his Terrorism Prevention Order (TPIM). While Londoners were busy heading to the sales, Magag simply jumped into a black cab, never to be seen again. A year on, we are no closer to knowing where he is or how he was able to abscond.
If We Are to Learn the Lessons From Lambeth, We Need a Slavery Bill Which Puts Victims Front and Centre
The truth is that this case, though extreme, is far from isolated. Modern day slavery is on the rise.
