Eating Disorders — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (16 Oct 2018)

Chris Evans: I congratulate the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) on bringing this vital debate to the House.

Will he commit to investing in more electric charging points across the country?

Terminal Illnesses: Continuing Healthcare — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Chris Evans: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention; he is always insightful. My experience is the same as his. Most people do not know about continuing healthcare. It is not just an issue for the Northern Irish, Scottish or Welsh Governments or whoever; it is a UK-wide issue. We are dealing with people who are near the end of their time on this earth, and we have a duty not just as politicians,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Tourism (13 Jun 2018)

Christians Overseas (22 May 2018)

Chris Evans: Given the time constraints, I will focus on the Coptic Orthodox Church. In Islwyn, St Mary’s and St Abu Saifain’s Coptic Orthodox church is the first in Wales, and hundreds of people from across Wales go to worship there every year. I was lucky to be invited when my son, Zachariah, was three weeks old. I went with my wife and we celebrated our first mass with the Copts there. We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Industrial Strategy (2 May 2018)

Chris Evans: At the heart of the industrial strategy is a commitment to 5G connectivity for businesses in Wales. Most businesses across Wales, including in my constituency, have little or no connectivity and slow connections. The Secretary of State has been warned by the CBI that the industrial strategy must be achievable. Is all this not just pie in the sky for businesses that are not connected at the moment?

She met John and Yoko at one of their famous bed-ins. As I am a big fan of the Beatles, our meeting went on from half an hour to two hours...

Leaving the EU: Tourism and the Creative Industries — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Friend the Member for Cardiff West will know that Wales has become a hub for BBC drama productions and for film, just as Scotland has—and Northern Ireland, with...
