World ME Day ( 1 May 2024)

Furnished Holiday Lettings: Taxation ( 1 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: I congratulate the hon. Member on bringing the debate forward. I suspect that I might be about to add a controversial opinion, but we will see how it goes.

Immigration Update ( 1 May 2024)

Financial Conduct Authority: Accountability ( 1 May 2024)

Jim Shannon: I wholeheartedly endorse what the right hon. Gentleman has said. Does he agree that, for many of us who have brought constituents’ financial issues to the FCA over the years, the FCA often appears to be a barrier rather than a help for the ordinary man or woman? Let us be honest, that perception needs to be altered by a seismic shift in how the FCA engages. I know he feels the frustration...

Preventable Sight Loss (30 Apr 2024)

She will know that this morning I had a debate on optometry care, which is a similar topic, and the issue is clear. In that debate, I said that 22 people weekly lose their sight to preventable loss. The hon. Lady knows that. Does she agree that the annual eye test should be pushed as forcibly as a...

Port Talbot Steelworks (30 Apr 2024)

Jim Shannon: I thank the Minister for his answers. It is clear that he is keen to find solutions, but obviously many on this side of the Chamber—indeed, on both sides—are a bit concerned.

Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) to highlight protocol problems with the...

Sport Horse Industry: Import and Export Controls (30 Apr 2024)

Jim Shannon: The hon. Lady is outlining a specific case, but we in Northern Ireland also have a specific case, which the Minister will know, in terms of the protocol and the Windsor framework, which has curtailed the movement of livestock within the UK.
