Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Devolution 22 Oct 2014

    May I add my welcome to the Secretary of State in his new role, and to the Minister? I also welcome the zeal that the Secretary of State has shown for devolution—unexpected zeal, because of course he used not to be so fond of it. For the benefit of the House, will he confirm today that he no longer thinks that devolution is what he once described as “constitutional vandalism”?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Devolution 22 Oct 2014

    I thank the Secretary of State for that clarification. We agree with him that devolution is not constitutional vandalism, but I will tell him what is: a Prime Minister for Britain describing Offa’s Dyke as “the line between life and death”, and a Tory Health Secretary hiring the Daily Mail to scuttle around traducing Welsh public services. That is constitutional vandalism...
  • Written Answers — Wales Office: Energy: Prices 16 Oct 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, what recent representations he has made to his Cabinet colleagues about the cost of gas and electricity in Wales.
