Business of the House: 16th November 2017

Anna Soubry (Broxtowe) (Con)
Will the Leader of the House confirm immediately that Nottinghamshire police is about to recruit—indeed, is recruiting—an extra 120 police officers?
 
Andrea Leadsom
I am delighted to hear my right hon. Friend’s news direct from the horse’s mouth. Again, I just want to pay tribute to the excellent work of our police forces right across the United Kingdom.
 
Vernon Coaker
Are you calling her a horse?

Anna Soubry
I am a mutineering horse.
 
Mr Speaker
Order. I think the Leader of the House was referring to the right hon. Lady in the spirit of saying that she was the authentic voice of her people, just as the hon. Gentleman is the authentic voice of Gedling. [Interruption.] Order. Forget horses. We cannot have an ongoing turf war between Nottinghamshire Members.
