Recent appearances

  • Animal Cruelty (Sentencing) Bill 24 Feb 2017

    On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. We have just had three excellent Bills with huge public support on animal welfare that have been blocked by Front-Bench and Back-Bench Conservative Members. Is there any way of putting this on the public record?
  • Written Answers — Home Office: Passports 23 Feb 2017

    To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether UK citizens will require new passports after the UK leaves the EU; and if she will make a statement.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Harmful Emissions: Road Transport 23 Feb 2017

    The Minister promised new eyes, so will he use them to recognise that there are some 10 million diesel car drivers in the UK. Rather than joining in their demonisation by a hysterical media, will he hold a full and proper inquiry into the pros and cons of diesel, including for buses, trucks and trains, and thereby adopt a proportionate approach to what remedies might be necessary?
