Harriet Harman Q and As for #IWD2018 after her speech, 2018-03-06

Reference Code: GBR/0014/SOBA 1/12

Scope and Contents

Harriet Harman MP gives her view on getting more women and black, asian, minority ethnic MPs into Westminster and the barriers they face. She comments: 'what are we training them for, to become Winston Churchill in the Darkest Hour!". Harman says that this is not about doing different groups of people 'a favour', Parliament has to be representative, it is a necessity. Harman notes that when she came into Parliament it was like it was during the 'Darkest Hour' film. It is not Harman's position to train new MPs, she says, they need and will find their own path.
