Recent appearances

  • Housing Costs 3 Apr 2014

    I was just reflecting, in the context of the report, on the question of the evidence we have, if we have any, about people who suffer from disabilities and live in crowded accommodation who now have the opportunity to move to less crowded accommodation as a consequence of the Government’s policy.

  • Amendment of the Law 24 Mar 2014
