We have covered many of...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) for the sterling work that he has done, the hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire South (Mhairi...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Grahame Morris: I really should not give way, because of the time. I do apologise to the hon. Gentleman, but you will admonish me if I give way, Madam Deputy Speaker.

It will take place next week, if it is necessary—if the Minister does not concede...

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Grahame Morris: I give the Transport Secretary credit for acknowledging the failure on at least two occasions of the private franchise running the east coast main line. My recollection is that when it was operated by the UK state-owned Directly Operated Railways it generated more than £100 million in profit for the Treasury, which could be used for vital public services. What assessment has he made of...

Grahame Morris: Millions of people are missing from the electoral registers, but there are high levels of support for reforming our electoral registration system—in particular, for automatic voter registration when a person receives their national insurance number. When will the Government implement the necessary reforms to ensure that our democracy works for the many, not just the few?

Business of the House (16 Nov 2017)

Grahame Morris: The A19 in my constituency is at a standstill following an accident.

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Grahame Morris: Is it not the case that the problem lies in our tactics of applying these complicated rules and regulations and in the fact that expensive minds—the accountants—can devise a way around them? Should we not be looking at a general principle, because people cannot get around a principle?

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (7 Nov 2017)

Grenfell Recovery Taskforce (6 Nov 2017)

Grahame Morris: I sincerely thank the Secretary of State for his statement, and the shadow Minister for his response. I also thank the taskforce for its recommendations, which the Secretary of State now wishes to press ahead with and implement as speedily as possible. Will he clarify one particular point?
