Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Council Tax: Lancashire 27 Nov 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how much additional revenue was raised by rises in council tax, including precepts by Lancashire County Council in (a) 2013-14 and (b) 2014-15 to date.
  • NHS (Ttip) 25 Nov 2014

    I thank my right hon. Friend for that concise answer. I reiterate the message to the unions, which are sticking up billboards in my constituency, that Cameron and Hunt are not selling off the NHS.
  • [Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Fracking 25 Nov 2014

    Does my right hon. Friend agree that, even though fracking is relatively new in this country, the House has had a debate that shows that we will have the world’s safest regulation on fracking? The experience in America happened over a period of decades when regulation was not as tight.
