Examples of his work include revealing the substantial gender differences in prison sentencing, in 2012 - video here. On International Men's Day[wp] (2015) he introduced the first parliamentary debate on men's issues - video here.
Quote: «I have also made one other observation on the Committee - we only ever seem to hear evidence from people who all have the same (politically correct) opinions and agenda.
On other select committees, we hear evidence from people with competing opinions and perspectives, and then produce a report after weighing up these different views.
On the Women and Equalities Select Committee, we hear from a never-ending supply of organisations in the equality industry nobody in the real world has ever heard from (I would love to know where they all get their money) but we never hear from anyone at all who thinks this agenda is a load of old nonsense.
This was an observation that didn't go down well with other committee members when I raised it, and was rejected.»
