Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Nursery Care 19 Jan 2015

    What assessment she has made of the effect of recent changes in child care costs on the affordability of nursery care for families on low and medium incomes.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Nursery Care 19 Jan 2015

    One in 10 working families spend one parent’s wages on child care, so why will the Minister not back Labour’s call for 25 hours a week of free child care for parents of three and four-year-olds, to help working families with this cost of living crisis created by this Government?
  • Control of Offshore Wind Turbines Bill 16 Jan 2015

    This Bill could cause real damage to the prospect of creating much needed jobs in my constituency. Members of Parliament in Hull and the local authority worked very hard together for a very long time, and for a Member of this House from east Yorkshire to support this Bill, which I have described as a silly Bill, is actually pretty dangerous.
