Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Paul Williams: CF Fertilisers is based in my hon. Friend’s constituency, Stockton North, but also employs people in my constituency and in Middlesbrough. My hon.

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Paul Williams: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Bambos Charalambous) on securing this important debate. Waiting frustrates us all.

Waiting to speak in a debate, it sometimes takes many hours to be called —thankfully, not today. But how long...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Sep 2017)

Paul Williams: Last year, 316 people died in our prisons. Emails from prison doctors printed in the media a few days ago say that there are not enough medical staff in our prisons and that urgent hospital referrals are being cancelled because of prison escort shortages.

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Paul Williams: May I begin by paying tribute to my predecessor, James Wharton, who showed a strong commitment to international development and worked hard for his constituents?
