- Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: A and E Departments (21 May 2013)Meg Munn: Why does the Secretary of State not increase access to primary care during normal working hours by reintroducing the requirement on primary care services to see patients within 48 hours, as happened under the Labour Government?
- Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Employment of Ex-offenders (21 May 2013)Meg Munn: Offenders with drug addictions often lead very chaotic lives, and often relapse several times before they secure the help that will enable them to embark on the path towards more a normal lifestyle. They need a great deal of work over a long period, and they are often not directly ready even to start looking for a job. How will the Minister’s system of payment by results, and his...

- Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: G8 Foreign Ministers (15 Apr 2013)Meg Munn: I congratulate the Foreign Secretary and all those involved in securing the declaration on preventing sexual violence in conflict.

- Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Heart Surgery (Leeds) (15 Apr 2013)Meg Munn: A baby born with a heart condition in Sheffield who needs a complex intervention would normally go to Leeds.

- Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (19 Mar 2013)Meg Munn: The Government have proposed to move personal injury cases below a certain level into the small claims court, which will mean more people representing themselves in person. That is likely to mean that a lot more time will be needed for those cases, as well as a lot of negotiation, which will lead to more costs. How does the Minister think that such a move will save the public money?
