Recent appearances

  • Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry 17 Sep 2015

    My hon. Friend is right about the crisis facing the industry. Does she agree that energy prices are part of the problem and have been for a long time? They are certainly affecting plants such as Shotton in my seat.
  • Adult Stem Cells and Life Sciences 15 Sep 2015

    The hon. Gentleman has touched on some of the late effects of transplantation, and the fact that we are getting patients with late effects proves that people are living longer, but we need to put more money into research and into looking at these problems, to ensure that patients live as normal a life as possible.
  • Adult Stem Cells and Life Sciences 15 Sep 2015

    This is not just about finding a match. We also have to think about the quality of the match. Everyone would like to see a 10 out of 10 success rate, but as a result of technological advances, lesser matches can now be used to help to save lives, even though they are not ideal.
