Phenylketonuria: Treatment and Support — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: I congratulate my hon. Friend not only on securing this debate, but on the knowledgeable and passionate way in which she is putting the case.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

George Howarth: Mainly out of fear. My right hon. Friend had a point, in that we do need a much better managed migration process in this country, but some of the businesses I spoke to in Knowsley said they rely on skills that simply are not available in this country, such as specialist engineering and construction skills. If we cannot fill those vacancies without some migrant labour for particular skills, we...

However, I know about the concern he raises and I share it. Having listened to what businesses and my constituents say, I now must make a choice about which, if any, of the amendments to support. I agree with my...
