Recent appearances

  • Animal Welfare 30 Mar 2017

    I commend my hon. Friend on securing this debate, and I wholeheartedly support him, while of course declaring my interest of having a dog as part of my family. Our sanctions against people who commit these horrendous crimes compare poorly globally; will he comment on that?
  • Legislating for Uk Withdrawal from the EU 30 Mar 2017

    I commend my right hon. Friend for his mature and considered approach to the devolved nations. May I press him on the principle that if, when powers come back from the EU, they do not affect the UK internal market, which is so important to my constituency and our Welsh nation, they will they be given to the devolved nations as soon as possible?
  • Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Housing: Corrosion 15 Mar 2017
