Recent appearances

  • Transport Infrastructure (West and South Cumbria) 25 Feb 2015

    I fully support the hon. Gentleman’s arguments. Cumbria desperately needs some real infrastructure spending internally, although we have good communications going out. Does he agree that the A595 going up to Carlisle is equally important for the development of Carlisle? If there were better connectivity between the east and the west, that would be good not just for economic development...
  • Businesses (North of England) — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] 14 Jan 2015

    I fully support decentralisation. I am very supportive of elected mayors—the metro mayor concept is definitely a positive for the north—but I am always concerned that places such as Cumbria do not get left behind. Can my hon. Friend envisage an elected mayor for Cumbria as a counterweight to the powerhouse of Manchester?
  • Written Answers — Scotland Office: Tourism 14 Jan 2015

    To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, what assessment he has made of recent trends in the number of visitors to Scotland and their contribution to the economy in Scotland.
