Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Jobcentre Plus Closures 27 Mar 2017

    I congratulate the Minister on surviving a recent grilling from young ambassadors at a meeting of the all-party group on youth employment. I welcome the news that fewer young people are unemployed to start with but, at 554,000, the figure is still too high. Will the Minister read the all-party group’s report with a view to ensuring that there are fewer young claimants in the first place?
  • Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill: Missing persons 24 Mar 2017

    I congratulate my hon. Friend on safely navigating this important Bill thus far. He cites the example of his constituent. Has he made an assessment of how many of our other constituents across the country may benefit from his excellent piece of legislation?
  • Local Audit (Public Access to Documents) Bill: Inspection of accounting records by journalists and citizen journalists 24 Mar 2017

    I congratulate my hon. Friend on piloting this Bill through its many stages in the House of Commons. She is fast becoming a master of these private Members’ Bill Fridays, although she is far too bashful to say so. I believe this worthy Bill will really add something to our statute book.
