Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Mike Gapes: May we have a debate in Government time on UK relations with Turkey? The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has failed to meet the two-month deadline for responding to the Foreign Affairs Committee report published on 25 March, and the Select Committees are not likely to be able to deal with the matter for some time, so it is incredibly important that the Government explain whether they support...

Points of Order (18 Jul 2017)

Mike Gapes: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I seek your guidance and advice. As you are aware, it is regular and customary for the Government to give a written response to Select Committee reports within two months of publication.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (Money): King George Hospital, Ilford (10 Jul 2017)

Mike Gapes: The ongoing social care crisis poses major difficulties. We all know that private care homes are struggling and that there is an issue of quality.

That event was a very good occasion, because it enabled me to get even more up-to-date...
