Recent appearances

  • [Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Backbench business — Animal Welfare (Non-stun Slaughter) 23 Feb 2015

  • Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Travellers: Caravan Sites 23 Feb 2015

    To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, when his Department plans to publish a response to its consultation entitled Planning and travellers: proposed changes to planning policy and guidance, published on 14 September 2014.
  • National Grid (Montgomeryshire) 4 Feb 2015
