More on well-known issues (from the Guardian) & their full record
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much was paid to Scotland under the Barnett formula as a consequence of his Department's expenditure on (a) roads and (b) railways in each of the last three years for which information is available.
Could the Prime Minister focus on the fact that Atos now wants to give up its contract for the work capability test? Is it not time to change the test back to one based on the medical evidence of the consultants of those who are applying? When 158,000 appeals are upheld, surely it is time for him also to rescind his decision to charge people for appeals.
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much the Barnett consequential for Scotland from the expenditure of £600 million on the Northern Hub rail upgrades will be.
