Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Feb 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: I join the Prime Minister and the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) in paying tribute to Harry Harpham, the hon. Member for Sheffield, Brightside and Hillsborough, a former miner, who passed away last week. Just a short time ago, Harry used his last question here to ask the Prime Minister about Sheffield Forgemasters and the steel industry. I hope the Prime Minister will reflect on his...

Opposition Day — EU Referendum: Timing: Housing: Long-term Plan (9 Feb 2016)

James Wharton: ..., I welcome the excellent comments from my hon. Friend the Minister for Housing and Planning, who covered nearly every topic that was then discussed by hon. Members. When my hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mims Davies) rose to speak, half of those on the Liberal Democrat Benches exited in fear of her incredible reputation for bringing down those of that party political colour. My...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Neighbourhood Plans (8 Feb 2016)

Mims Davies: I thank the Minister for his important answer. Having failed to deliver the first time, the Liberal Democrat-led Eastleigh borough council is now consulting on its new and somewhat controversial draft local plan document.

Andrew Jones: I congratulate my hon. Friend on her work on this issue. I know she has put an enormous effort into it.

State Pension Age (Women) (7 Jan 2016)

Mims Davies: Does my hon. Friend agree with me and my constituents in Eastleigh that the notice period for some of the women was simply far too short?

Business of the House (17 Dec 2015)

Chris Grayling: ...taking the decision on that is of course sitting opposite, the hon. Member for Gateshead (Ian Mearns), and will be noting this.

[Geraint Davies in the Chair] — State Pension Age Equalisation (2 Dec 2015)

Mims Davies: I want to reiterate the communication issue, which is exactly what people were annoyed and fed up with on the doorsteps and when I spoke to women in my constituency in Eastleigh. They had worried and planned and made provision for their future, but the change to their future had not been communicated to them. They had not expected to face hardship because they were women and had been...

Mims Davies: hon. Friends the Member for Castle Point (Rebecca Harris), for Norwich North (Chloe Smith) and for North Dorset (Simon Hoare), who said that immigration was the No. 1 issue on the doorstep. In Eastleigh post the by-election—we were third, before moving into second place and then absolutely came first—we had to reflect that fact in our deliberations. It was disingenuous to...

Outdoor Recreation — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (28 Oct 2015)

Caroline Nokes: important, just sporadically, to practise what we preach. Last weekend, I could be found on the mean streets of Portsmouth with my hon. Friends the Members for Fareham (Suella Fernandes) and for Eastleigh (Mims Davies), running the Great South Run. I think all of us, perhaps, are beyond 40, so we are in the age group that the hon.

We need to think not about road or rail in isolation,...
