Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (20 Mar 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I thank the Government Chief Whip for enabling us to have this debate in the Chamber.

Stronger Towns Fund - Statement (5 Mar 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, my noble friend Lady Pinnock asked the Minister about defining the word “town”, which I do not quite think he did. However, it is an important question.
