Oil and Gas Producers: Windfall Tax (1 Feb 2022)

David Duguid: Perhaps unsurprisingly, I rise to speak against the motion. I declare an interest, although it is not necessarily required, as having been employed in the oil and gas sector for 25 years prior to being elected to this place.

Cost of Living Increases (24 Jan 2022)

David Duguid: My hon.
