Recent appearances

  • Commercial Debt: Late Payments — Question 2 Feb 2016

    The Minister may be aware that, certainly in Northern Ireland this year and I suspect elsewhere, farm incomes dropped by 41%. I am sure that that is the case in many other areas. How is it possible to ignore the fact that large companies are screwing these small farmers because they can? There needs to be a more vigorous approach by his department. Does he agree?
  • Airports Act 1986 (Amendment) Bill [HL] — Order of Commitment Discharged 29 Jan 2016

    My Lords, I understand that no amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript amendment or to speak in Committee. Therefore, unless any noble Lord objects, I beg to move that the Order of Commitment be discharged. Motion agreed.
