Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: World War II: Military Decorations 22 Sep 2015

    To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 12 January 2015 to Question 219983, whether arrangements for the award of the Arctic Star medal indicate that the presumption against double-medalling set out in that Answer is no longer in force.
  • Bill Presented — Immigration Bill: Backbench Business — UK Steel Industry 17 Sep 2015

    I agree entirely with all the points my hon. Friend is making. Does he recall that when we met Tata Steel, along with the hon. Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin), one of its other requests was for modest support for some work that needs to be done to determine the firm’s future? Does my hon. Friend join me in hoping that the Minister will view that request sympathetically when she replies?
