Recent appearances

  • Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Clause 3 — Companies: duty to publish report on payment practices 24 Mar 2015

    I very much welcome what the Minister said and I welcome the clause. When I was running a small business of my own, late payments bedevilled the business, and it was always the larger companies that were responsible for it. I am very glad that this amendment is being made.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements 18 Mar 2015

    Does my right hon. Friend agree that our long-term economic plan is doing an outstanding job in my constituency? Unemployment now stands at 269, making it the best performance of any constituency in the country. Will he join me in thanking the firms that I visited last week in Thame that are running fantastic apprenticeship schemes, and the young people joining them?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Tax Credits 10 Mar 2015

    Is my hon. Friend aware of the Institute for Fiscal Studies report on living standards showing that living standards are back to where they were before Labour’s great recession? Does this not help the very people she has mentioned?
