One of the great pleasures of being Secretary of State at DCMS is having an insight into the remarkable and unprecedented change that is taking place within our media sector. And there’s one recent example that spells this out plainly. When Netflix launched in 1997, Blockbuster was the heavyweight of video rentals, with almost 3,000 stores around the globe.

  • Wednesday, 30 October, 2019
    9:00 - 10:15

Much energy has been devoted to debating what impact Britain’s departure from the European Union will have for trade and the economy but there has been far less scrutiny of what this will mean for national security. The impact of Brexit on UK-EU cooperation on intelligence, border security, cyber security, and serious crime remains unclear. Yet, with the challenges of adapting to the post-Brexit reality, leaving the European Union may see Britain chart a new course in our national security strategy.

  • Wednesday, 23 October, 2019
    8:50 - 9:45

When I walk into my office at the Ministry of Housing each morning, there is a wall of portraits of some of the great reforming ministers who’ve held my office in the post-war era. From Harold McMillan, Sir Keith Joseph to Michael Heseltine. I think that some of them have set out to build more homes, some to reform our undoubtedly complex and convoluted housing and planning system and some have used this office to breath new life into communities. Whether that’s London’s Docklands or inner city Liverpool.


  • Monday, 14 October, 2019
    18:00 - 19:00

The Supreme Court’s judgment in Cherry/Miller, quashing the Prime Minister’s advice to Her Majesty to prorogue Parliament and therefore the prorogation that followed, is momentous.  It raises important questions about the nature of the constitution and the role of the courts therein.  This event brings together leading jurists to debate the judgment’s merits and implications.

Based on unrestricted access to all Lady Thatcher’s papers, unpublished interviews with her and all her major colleagues, this third volume covers the final years of her premiership, from the 1987 General Election through to the “coup” against her within the Conservative Party that led to her resignation in 1990. It then takes the story to her death in 2013.
