Recent appearances

  • Energy and Climate Change: Energy Market Competition 14 Jul 2016

    I congratulate the Minister on all that she has done to encourage competition, which helps consumers to get a price that is better for them. That is in stark contrast to Opposition Members who often scaremonger about capacity markets driving prices up and scare my constituents into worrying about whether they can pay their bills.

    Will the Secretary of State update the House on what she is doing to bring economic empowerment to women, especially in the world’s poorest countries?
