Recent appearances

  • Business of the House 2 Jul 2015

    May we have a statement on the roadworks on the M6, particularly the closure of the slip road at junction 9? Nobody seems to be working on it, or under it. I have written to Highways England, the Secretary of State for Transport and the council. Will the Leader of the House please tell me who is in charge?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Davies Commission Report 1 Jul 2015

    I echo what my hon. Friend the Member for Barnsley East (Michael Dugher) says, but Birmingham international stands ready for expansion with international flights to JFK in New York and Beijing that are cheaper than from Heathrow. Will the Secretary of State seriously take into account the fact that Birmingham has a strategic position in the UK and its connectivity to HS2?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Affordable Homes Programme 29 Jun 2015

    What assessment has the Minister made of land throughout the country that already has planning permission for housing that could help the affordable housing programme?
