I am delighted to speak today as chair of the all-party group on women and enterprise.

Thankfully, that was...

International Women’S Day 2016 (8 Mar 2016)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. It was good that she raised that point in Prime Minister’s Question Time last week.

Ceramic and Brick Industries (15 Jun 2016)

Craig Tracey: My hon. Friend pre-empted part of my speech. She is absolutely right that we need more houses, and that it makes absolute sense for the bricks for those houses to come from local businesses in the UK. The loss of the free allocation I have described will, when combined with an escalating market price for carbon allowances, significantly increase the cost of production. Meanwhile, competing...

Ceramic and Brick Industries (15 Jun 2016)
