Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill: Listing of automated vehicles by the Secretary of State (26 Jun 2018)

Greg Knight: Lords amendment 14 deals with the regulation-making power in clause 9 and says that these regulations may, for example, deal with technical specifications. Can the Minister confirm to the House that the regulation-making power is wider than that and could, for example, require the operator to display the price per unit that is to be charged? It is important that motorists know what they will...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)

Greg Knight: I am most grateful to the Minister for giving way. Perhaps he should have gone to Specsavers. Will he say a little bit more about compensation? Some of the people who have to pay rates, which they will now get back, may have deferred business investment decisions, based on a business expense that they were not expecting. There is an arguable case in future for our looking at the issue of...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)

Greg Knight: First, does my hon. Friend share my disgust that not one Liberal Democrat MP is in the Chamber to discuss an important matter affecting rural communities? Secondly, although retrospection in law is generally to be frowned upon, does she agree that it is most welcome in this case because we are righting a perceived wrong?

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)

Friend’s view on that, and who...

Non-Domestic Rating (Nursery Grounds) Bill (5 Jun 2018)
