Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Non-domestic Rates 25 Apr 2017

    To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how much his Department received in business rates for each local authority area in 2015-16; and what estimate his Department has made of the amount which each local authority in England will retain from the business rate levy in each of the next five years.
  • Air Quality Strategy: Business of the House (24, 25, 26 and 27 April) 24 Apr 2017

    I thank the Leader of the House for bringing this motion to the House and for the helpful explanatory note, which runs to three pages and is available in the Vote Office. May I also thank the staff for the expeditious way in which they are dealing with the future business, given the forthcoming general election?
  • Justice Committee: Manchester, Gorton (Writ) 20 Apr 2017

    I thank the Leader of the House for moving the motion. I agree wholeheartedly with the course of action that is being taken. It is the only possible course of action, given that there is to be a general election on 8 June. Question put and agreed to.
