Recent appearances

  • Exiting the European Union: EU Regional Funding 20 Oct 2016

    What discussions he has had with his Cabinet colleagues on EU regional funding as part of his preparations for negotiations on the UK leaving the EU.
  • Exiting the European Union: EU Regional Funding 20 Oct 2016

    The Minister has quoted part of what the Chancellor said, but he also said that finance will be guaranteed to bidders “whose projects meet UK priorities”. Does that imply that the UK Government will try to change agreed priorities for EU expenditure?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Steel Industry 19 Oct 2016

    Welsh steel is obviously of the highest quality, and I hope that when Heathrow airport is expanded Welsh steel will be used. In that sense, will the Secretary of State have a word with the Prime Minister to ensure that she stops faffing around on Heathrow expansion and that we have a positive decision as early as possible?
