Recent appearances

  • Business of the House: Local Government Finance 18 Dec 2014

    Labour-run Kirklees council has recently managed to find 200,000 to lend to the struggling Castle and Minster credit union. There is no guarantee that it will get that money back. Does the Minister agreed that that is the kind of can-do attitude we need more of from our Labour-run councils?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Post Office Card Account 16 Dec 2014

    As deputy vice-chairman of the all-party group on post offices, I greatly welcome this announcement on the Post Office card account. Because of the new local branches across my constituency, we now have over 300 extra post office opening hours every month. Does the Minister agree that this signals an end to the 13 years of decline in our wonderful post office network?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Devolution (Implications for England) 16 Dec 2014

    My constituents tell me every weekend that English votes for English laws is a basic principle of fairness. Talking of fairness, I have more than 81,000 constituents, but a neighbouring Member has just 67,000. How fair is that?
