Recent appearances

  • Post Office Closures — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] 25 Apr 2017

    I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate. Does he agree that the Government need to look at the services that post offices provide, which they are losing, and the return that they are getting on them?
  • Northern Ireland (Ministerial Appointments and Regional Rates) Bill 24 Apr 2017

    The Secretary of State is outlining very well the business that this House may have to do and the business that he has to do today. But does he accept that we would not be in this place were it not for the arrogance of Sinn Féin, who walked away from the Executive and left Northern Ireland in the predicament we are in today?
  • Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993: Ballydugan Four 19 Apr 2017

    My hon. Friend mentioned the mother of one of the victims and he has mentioned children. Sometimes we are inclined to forget about the families who are left all these years after such events happened. I am sure he will agree that we must keep them to the fore.
