Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: Following your guidance, Mr Speaker, I have a simple question. We are going to build more houses in this country, which is welcome. A local estate agent, Greenslade Taylor Hunt, has been caught price fixing. May we have a debate on stopping estate agents abusing their position when we want to build more houses for young people?

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I am one of the offenders to whom you referred, Mr Speaker, as I said last time when I threw myself at your mercy. I am grateful that you gave us another telling off, but I was on time—

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I will not chunter. The Leader of the House is fully aware that we are trying to get Hinkley Point C built as soon as possible. One problem is the A358, which is now subject to yet another consultation. Taunton Deane Borough Council has blatantly lied that the road go-ahead has been given. That is not true. Could we please have a debate on the issue, as the Hinkley C project is of massive...

District Councils (England) (14 Nov 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I beg to move, That this House has considered the long-term future of district councils in England. It is delightful to be here under your chairmanship, Mr Austin. I am incredibly proud to represent the smallest district council in England, now in danger of abolition if the proposals currently before the Secretary of State are approved. It would be merger most foul. I am absolutely determined...

District Councils (England) (14 Nov 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I do not know the hon. Lady’s local situation, but she has made her point eloquently, and I am certain that the Minister has heard it. I thank her for her intervention. We are all being completely conned.

District Councils (England) (14 Nov 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I agree totally with my hon. Friend, with whom I have worked on many issues. The problem is that bigger is not always better; in fact, it is horses for courses, whatever part of the country might be involved. It does not matter whether the council area is controlled by Labour, the Conservatives or the Scottish National party; one size does not fit all, and that is what I think is happening...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (14 Nov 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: May I thank the Secretary of State for all the help he gave with Minehead hospital in my constituency? I am very grateful.

Will the Secretary of State offer some advice on how we can get round this situation?

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I am delighted that we have secured this important debate in this House. I pay tribute to both Front Benchers. The hon. Member for Lancaster and Fleetwood (Cat Smith) made a very interesting comment about local councillors, but did not elaborate on it. We are able to have some recourse against the people we are talking about, but our local councillors have no recourse at all, regardless of...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: I thank the hon. Lady for her thoughtful intervention. The Front Benchers made the views of the two main parties clear, and I am sure that the Scottish National party agrees that the intimidation of councillors on any level absolutely cannot be right. I agree with what she says. One problem in rural areas—possibly not so much in urban ones—is that a lot of the people who want to...
