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.

Christians Overseas (22 May 2018)

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.

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?

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...
