Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cycleways 24 May 2018

    To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what funding his Department plans to allocate to dedicated cycle networks similar to London's cycle superhighways in (a) cities and (b) towns throughout the UK.
  • Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Biometrics 24 May 2018

    To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will take steps to ensure that the facial recognition software that law enforcement bodies use is accurate.
  • Fuel Laundering 22 May 2018

    I wish to raise an area of major concern, which is the position of road hauliers, particularly those in Northern Ireland, who are missing out because they are having to compete against those who are dealing in smuggled fuel and are, thus, unable to compete on a level playing field. Most of the moneys being derived from this are going into the pockets of paramilitaries.
