Recent appearances

  • Vauxhall/Opel: Proposed Takeover 20 Feb 2017

    Opel has not made a profit in the EU since 1999, and Carlos Tavares, the chief executive of PSA, has a record of drastically reducing costs. What further tools does my right hon. Friend have in his armament to ensure that PSA does not move vehicle producing factories and the supply chain out of the UK?
  • Unaccompanied Child Refugees 9 Feb 2017

    While the Dubs amendment is one part of the overall strategy on refugees, would my right hon. Friend agree that the UK’s record on the full strategy has been exemplary and our biggest humanitarian contribution in our history?
  • Broadcasting (Radio Multiplex Services) Bill: Small-scale radio multiplex services 3 Feb 2017

    On the digital technology that my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) mentioned earlier, we really struggle with reception in Calder Valley, so for community and small radio stations to go digital, surely we have to have the technology in place first.
