Member for Bosworth (David Tredinnick) on not only giving us an incredibly good history lesson today, but extolling the virtues of all that is planned for his constituency and the surrounding area.

If we are to develop more...
Rachael Maskell: Of course we are deeply concerned about the economy of south Wales. That is why we electrified the line to south Wales that helped to boost the economy in that region, and also ensured that HS2 fed into north Wales, helping the whole of the Welsh economy to grow. We have some concerns, and it is absolutely right that there is tight scrutiny of every part of the project, as my right hon....
Rachael Maskell: I thank the hon. Gentleman, but I do understand the process. Petitions will be brought forward, and we will listen carefully to them.
