  • Business of the House: Principles of Democracy and the Rights of the Electorate 26 Sep 2019

    I am grateful to the Minister. He is absolutely right: all the political parties have, at one time or another, made a commitment to a referendum. In their 2010 manifestos, the three major parties gave a commitment to hold a referendum on what became the Lisbon treaty, better known as the European constitution, although unfortunately the majority of MPs did not comply with those manifesto...
  • Prorogation of Parliament — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] 9 Sep 2019

    A new argument has come forward. A number of parties have said that if there is a second referendum, they will honour the result only if people vote in a particular way. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that that would completely undermine that referendum, and all future referendums?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Electric Vehicles: Infrastructure 18 Jul 2019

    Thank you, Mr Speaker. I was surprised to find that the charging sockets are not standardised, either on cars or on charging points. Would it not make sense to regulate to standardise them?
