Martin Vickers: Will my hon. Friend give way?

UK Steel Industry (9 Jul 2019)

Martin Vickers: My hon. Friend is, as always, erudite—that is the word I was looking for. His point about the northern Lincolnshire economy is well made, as it was by the hon. Member for Scunthorpe (Nic Dakin). Would he also acknowledge that this issue spreads far and wide? Some 150 people are employed at the port of Immingham, either by Associated British Ports or British Steel directly. Speaking as...

Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars and Vans: Assisted Dying (4 Jul 2019)

Martin Vickers: I recognise what my hon. Friend says, but I do not think it is possible to change the law and cover all the varying circumstances. I regret the fact that many in the medical profession are moving towards support for assisted dying. The views of the public vary considerably at various times, and can be influenced by headlines, but I hoped that the medical profession would take a different...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Youth Services (4 Jul 2019)

Violent Crime (17 Jun 2019)
