Recent appearances

  • Business of the House: Sale of Park Homes 30 Oct 2014

    This is the first I have learned of the problem. I have listened to the debate and I am absolutely appalled. The 10% fee sounds like daylight robbery. It is fair to charge a rent for a pitch; it is grossly unfair to charge 10% for nothing. It is robbery.
  • Business of the House: Sale of Park Homes 30 Oct 2014

    Would an increase in fees be fairer than a 10% cut when someone is trying to sell? It seems to me a fairer proposition.
  • Business of the House: Backbench Business — UK Drugs Policy 30 Oct 2014

    We have not touched much on the subject of crime. If we legalised drugs, the business would be less lucrative to the criminal world and that would stop some of the criminal gangs killing one another. We would have the bonus of fewer young people being killed on the streets of London.
