Debate on the Address: The Economy and Work (26 May 2016)

Christopher Pincher: I congratulate the hon. Member for Makerfield (Yvonne Fovargue) on her typically thoughtful speech. I particularly congratulate my right hon. Friend the Chancellor on continuing, in his speech, the march of the makers. That stood in stark contrast to the march of the Marxists that characterised the shadow Chancellor’s speech. We certainly make things in the midlands and in Tamworth. We...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Christopher Pincher: My right hon. Friend is being typically generous in giving way.

Can the Minister confirm the importance, in...

Train Services: Southend (11 May 2016)

Christopher Pincher: Quite rightly, the Minister says that we must not have late or delayed trains. Does she also agree that trains in Southend and elsewhere should not be overcrowded as well as delayed? One reason why trains are sometimes overcrowded is that fair prices rise rapidly or fall rapidly at certain times. Perhaps if we were able to look at a pricing mechanism that did not have these cliff-face...

Coal-fired Power Stations — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (27 Apr 2016)

Does my right hon. Friend agree that this could do tremendous reputational harm to the medical profession, and that that...
