Jim Fitzpatrick: Last week, the Minister told me that the Department is keeping pressure on Ballymore Ltd, following the Secretary of State’s letter of 19 December, for which I am grateful. However, the leaseholders have now received an offer from Ballymore saying that the bill is £2.4 million for fire safety work. They can have half a million pounds off, but they must pay the rest. That offer is only...

Delegated Legislation: Fire Safety and Cladding (23 Jan 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way. I apologise for missing the start of his speech, but I have been watching it from outside the Chamber.

They include the Chair of the...

Some call for no deal, and some support the Prime Minister’s...

Cancer Workforce and Early Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (8 Jan 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I certainly do. I am sorry to hear about the fatality in my hon. Friend’s family. I am sure the Minister will talk about staff and I will come to it later in my speech.

The Minister might want to comment on that when responding. My last point...
