Recent appearances

  • Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March) (No. 2): Procedure of the House 26 Mar 2015

    I think my right hon. Friend has inadvertently misled the House. The recommendation from the Procedure Committee in 2011 that we should visit this issue and vote on whether the election of the Speaker should be by secret ballot was a reiteration of an argument that that Committee first put forward in 2009, as it felt that the decision should have been made before the 2010 election.
  • Written Answers — Department for Transport: Humber Bridge 25 Mar 2015

    To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, for how long is half of the road carriageway area of the Humber Bridge to be cordoned off; and for what reason that cordoning has taken place.
  • Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Clause 41 — The Pubs Code 24 Mar 2015

    I understand that the provisions on staff secondment require the Secretary of State’s approval. Can my hon. Friend give the House an example of the circumstances in which a Secretary of State might refuse such approval?
