Recent appearances

  • Exiting the European Union: Tourism 27 Apr 2017

    What recent discussions his Department has had with representatives of the tourism sector on the implications for that sector of the UK leaving the EU.
  • Exiting the European Union: Tourism 27 Apr 2017

    Southend, of course, is a wonderful tourist destination, with the longest pleasure pier in the world. London Southend airport flies to 26 international destinations. The airport does not do Brussels, however, but it does do Europe. Will the Minister, on his re-election, agree to come to Southend to discuss how a new, emboldened Britain can do the European Union and the country a good job...
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Money Laundering 18 Apr 2017

    The EU is to blame for many things, but it is not to blame for money laundering and, in fact, any solution that looks to the EU to solve money laundering is missing the point that it is an international problem. Therefore, will the Minister confirm that he will be engaging internationally and not through the parochial lens of the EU?
