Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Aldous: I will not detain the House for long. The local government finance settlement is of particular interest to me due to the significant challenges that councils face in areas such as Suffolk in delivering services, particularly adult social care and children’s services.

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Aldous: As I said, I do not represent a wealthy area, and many sacrifices have had to be made on all sides, but we need to consider things in a calm and rational way to try to come up with a solution that is fair to all.

Restoration and Renewal (Report of the Joint Committee) (31 Jan 2018)

Peter Aldous: For 27 years before arriving in this place, I practised as a chartered surveyor.

The Palace of Westminster is the most iconic building in the UK. It is not ours; it belongs to the nation. We are the custodians, with the responsibility...

Fireworks — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (29 Jan 2018)

Peter Aldous: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point, which I was not going to raise, but it is pertinent, and it is right to make it, so I thank him. There do not appear to be figures for the average length of the UK garden, but it has been suggested that the typical British garden is 50 feet long. If that is correct, many modern houses will not have gardens of the required size to ensure the safety of...
