Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Paul Sweeney: My constituent Duc Nguyen was on the brink of deportation to Vietnam yesterday. It took the quick action of my office and others to prevent that from happening.

May...

Points of Order (12 Jun 2018)

Paul Sweeney: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Thank you for your patience in hearing this point of order. I seek your clarification on the programme motion.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Feed-in Tariff Scheme (12 Jun 2018)

Paul Sweeney: Although I was delighted to hear that the world-leading small wind turbine manufacturer in my constituency, Gaia-Wind, was saved from liquidation this week by an overseas buyer, the unnecessary uncertainty that the Government have created around the future of small-scale renewable energy persists. So will the Minister put investors and companies at ease and make a cast-iron promise to bring...
