Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements 20 Jul 2016

    I, too, welcome the right hon. Lady to her place. Newcastle airport was voted “best in Britain” this week, but the good news that it is really waiting for is a decision on Heathrow expansion. The Prime Minister knows that Britain needs to be open for business, so will she do better than dithering Dave and give us a decision without delay?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions 19 Jul 2016

    Two infrastructure projects are critical to the north-east: increased airport capacity at Heathrow, and an expanded Metro system. What funding commitment can the Government make to those projects today?
  • Article 50: Parliamentary Approval 11 Jul 2016

    The Minister cannot say what “Brexit means Brexit” really means, so is it not vital that, given we have no idea what the terms of exit will be, this is properly scrutinised and voted on by democratically elected Members of this House?
