Recent appearances

  • Govia Thameslink Franchise 18 Jul 2018

    I have said to the Minister in the House several times that Govia runs not only GTR but Southeastern. This morning, services were again delayed because of a broken-down train. That is not infrastructure; it is the rail operating company. Why do the Government turn a blind eye to Govia? It is not fit and proper and should have its franchises taken away.
  • Immigration: Pausing the Hostile Environment 12 Jul 2018

    If the Government are not trying to avoid setting up a hardship fund, why the delay?
