Business of the House (10 April 2014)

Business of the House: Bovine TB (3 April 2014)

Business of the House (3 April 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I welcome the Government’s success so far in creating extra private sector jobs which have increased the number of people in employment to 30 million. I also salute the Chancellor’s commitment to full employment. May we have a debate about the need for increased productivity to tackle both our need to export more and the cost of living? Productivity is the key, as well as full...

Energy and Climate Change: Energy Markets (Competition) (3 April 2014)

Neil Carmichael: If we are to improve the energy markets, we must also increase capacity, as this Government have rightly noted.

Amendment of the Law (20 March 2014)

Neil Carmichael: It is a great honour to follow the hon. Member for Luton South (Gavin Shuker), not least because he and I will be working together on the all-party group on polar regions, which is absolutely fabulous. The Budget is a staging post in the mission to rescue the British economy. It is an important staging post and it signals some important messages. First, I will introduce some thoughtful...

Amendment of the Law (20 March 2014)

Neil Carmichael: Does the Secretary of State agree that the issue of our productivity is linked directly to skills?

Business of the House (20 March 2014)

Neil Carmichael: With the CBI noting that we need even more engineers to strengthen our already powerful, long-term economic plan, may we have a debate to encourage school governors to think more in terms of business links and developing relationships with businesses so that we can get schools to fill these extra engineering places?

Brown Hare (Protection): Ukraine (18 March 2014)

Neil Carmichael: It is a great honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh). His analysis of history is extraordinarily interesting, but of course in this House we must confront the political realities that exist as a consequence of an aggressive Russia. This is where we are and that is what we must do. We need to recognise two or three things. First, President Putin is...
