Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pension Investments 27 Mar 2017

    Well, that is the point I was going to ask the Minister about. Will he tell us when he will crack down on cold calling? These people are trying to scam others out of their hard-earned life savings, taking advantage of the notion that there are these freedoms, but potentially putting pensioners at great risk. When will the legislation be brought forward?
  • Prisons and Courts Bill 20 Mar 2017

    Should not the Lord Chancellor use the Bill to put in place a fairer and more balanced framework for calculating personal injury compensation lump sum insurance payments, following her seismic decision on the discount rate a few weeks ago? That decision has the potential to raise our constituents’ insurance premiums, and the Treasury has said that it could add £2 billion next year...
  • Written Answers — Department of Health: Strokes 16 Mar 2017

    To ask the Secretary of State for Health, pursuant to the Answer of 22 November 2016 to Question 53151, if the Government will ensure that the Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme begins to collect data on patient experience and outcomes.
