Recent appearances

  • Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage 19 Jun 2018

    The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. The Leader of the House said that the Opposition were given a chance last year to become the Government and did not get it from the electorate, but she should be reminded that she did not get it either. She mentioned the Crown and ancient conventions a lot in her speech. She should remember what happened to a king who defied Parliament.
  • Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport 19 Jun 2018

    It is not many months since we had a problem with Southern, as has been mentioned by the hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Caroline Lucas). From time to time there are problems on the west coast main line, yet the Secretary of State sits there like Pontius Pilate and abdicates responsibility.
  • Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Housing: Construction 19 Jun 2018

    To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how many homes have been built on land that was previously green belt land in each of the last eight years.
