The Prime Minister Was Asked--: Engagements (28 Jun 2017)

William Wragg: Businesses in my constituency share the Prime Minister’s desire to provide certainty for trade arrangements in the years immediately following our exit from the EU.

Indeed, we could make it a double celebration, should the good people of Marple Bridge see...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Mar 2017)

William Wragg: With modification, schools in my constituency welcome the national funding formula. Given the Leader of the Opposition’s contribution, I hope that the next part of my question does not land me on the naughty step.

Hereditary Peers — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

William Wragg: My hon. Friend is a very able Minister for the Constitution, which is a subtle change of title from the previous Minister for Constitutional Reform—I am glad that an element of conservatism is seeping through the Cabinet Office.
