Recent appearances

  • Business of the House 15 Mar 2018

    Since raising the York housing crisis in the Chamber, my inbox has been flooded with horrific stories of damp and mouldy housing in York, where landlords, both council and private, have completely failed my constituents. May we have a debate about the condition of housing, with particular regard to damp and mouldy homes, so that we can stamp out damp once and for all?
  • Exiting the European Union: Customs Union and Free Trade Agreements 15 Mar 2018

    At a recent meeting in this place, the director general of the CBI highlighted that Germany sells 4.7 times more to China than the UK does. Therefore, being in a customs union does not prevent countries from extending trade with global partners. Does the Minister agree with her?
  • Allergy Awareness in Schools — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] 14 Mar 2018

    At the moment it is completely voluntary for schools to hold an EpiPen. Will the Minister look into ensuring that all schools have such devices?
