Long Covid (14 Jan 2021)

Chris Loder: If the hon. Gentleman will forgive me, I would like to keep going.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Covid-19: Support for Business (15 Dec 2020)

Chris Loder: May I gently suggest to the Minister that one of the best ways he will be able to support small businesses in my constituency of West Dorset is to use his influence in discussions within Government tomorrow to reduce West Dorset from tier 2 to tier 1? In the event of that not being possible, could he outline more specifically what the Government will be doing to support the 97% of businesses...

Covid-19 (14 Dec 2020)

Chris Loder: It is a pleasure to contribute to this debate. Today’s actions from the Government are clearly well needed and well understood, particularly in those areas where the pandemic and covid is on the rise, but I rise to make the case for those at the other end of the spectrum—for areas such as rural Dorset, and indeed my constituency of West Dorset, where the number of cases has considerably...

Covid-19 (14 Dec 2020)

Amidst the green and pleasant lands of rural Dorset and the rolling hills of...

Business of the House (3 Dec 2020)

Covid-19 Lockdown: Homelessness and Rough Sleepers (11 Nov 2020)

Chris Loder: Is it not just so sad when we see homelessness and rough sleeping on our streets? One reason that I was so proud to stand as a Conservative party candidate at the last general election was our commitment to eradicate rough sleeping by the end of this Parliament.
