  • Business of the House: Backbench Business — Defence Spending 12 Mar 2015

    While I disagree with my hon. Friend about misguided previous military engagements—I do not think that either was misguided—we did see what happens when we try to deploy troops abroad on the cheap without their being properly equipped. We lost a lot of good people because of that, and there were a lot of injuries. We should never put our people in that position again.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure Investment 10 Mar 2015

    What steps he is taking to invest in infrastructure.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure Investment 10 Mar 2015

    I am delighted that the Government have made significant commitments to the south-west region, such as the fantastic 50 million-worth of investment for a new junction on the M49 in my constituency. Will the Minister confirm what further investments he is making for improvements to transport across the south-west region as a whole?
