Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

David Hanson: The Prime Minister has made the right call on the facts before her today, and her judgment in this matter is correct.

Northern Ireland Finances (12 Mar 2018)

David Hanson: Could the Minister set a timetable for her consideration of a halfway house on some of the scrutiny issues that have been mentioned by Members across the House?

Uk/EU Future Economic Partnership (5 Mar 2018)

David Hanson: I support the Prime Minister’s objectives for Northern Ireland, but given the absence of a customs union, will she give us more detail about what will happen to the hundreds of lorries that go each day from Dún Laoghaire in Ireland to Holyhead, from Larne in Northern Ireland to Stranraer in Scotland, and from Belfast to Liverpool, because that is still not clear to the businesses...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (26 Feb 2018)

Rail Update (5 Feb 2018)

David Hanson: If the Secretary of State rushed, he would just about get the 6.10 from Euston to Flint in north Wales, and it would cost him £283 for a return ticket.
