Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Nuclear safeguards (2 Nov 2017)

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Nuclear safeguards (2 Nov 2017)

It...

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Nuclear safeguards (2 Nov 2017)

Alex Norris: I said earlier that I do not think there is public energy behind us not participating in Euratom in some way.

Rather, it is a necessity of circumstance, and this Bill is a contingency to cover such an event. I am in...

Puppy Smuggling (1 Nov 2017)

Alex Norris: I share the hon. Gentleman’s support for the work that Dogs Trust has done, especially with the puppy pilot scheme, but does he share my view that if it is easier for people to move puppies, we need stronger penalties to ensure that there is a genuine deterrent to them doing so?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Swansea Main Line: Electrification (1 Nov 2017)

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Examination of Witnesses (31 Oct 2017)

Alex Norris: Q This is probably a question to Rupert or Jonathan. You said that you watched the Second Reading with interest. You will have heard in that session that if we leave the EU, which we will, we will by definition have to leave Euratom.
