Public Bill Committee: Trade Bill: Implementation of international trade agreements (30 Jan 2018)

We all know about the real...

Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) when he was Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, was that there should be a rebalancing of the level of reward between pub companies and tenants. The...

The amendment had been called for by leading charities in the sector, including StepChange and the Children’s Society, and by my right hon.

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes (18 Jan 2018)

Norman Lamb: ...Member for Norwich South (Clive Lewis). The revelations in the report of the independent review are absolutely shocking, and that is without the revelation from my right hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) that the full report says “Management knew or should have known that this was an intended and co-ordinated strategy”. Why was that left out of the...

Carillion (15 Jan 2018)

Of the Carillion contracts that, until this morning, were still active, roughly a third were awarded by the Conservative Government, roughly a third were awarded by the coalition Government when the right hon.

Housebuilders - Motion to Take Note (11 Jan 2018)

Lord True: ...supermarket. That was achieved by discussion in the planning system. I have always found housebuilders responsive. I praise St James for the provision of a new community hall and education facility in a 300-plus development in Twickenham. It is a mistake to focus on numbers alone. Liveable communities are made not in City Hall or Whitehall but by creative partnerships, with local...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Apprenticeships (11 Dec 2017)

Anne Milton: I am a bit disappointed that the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) is not the Chamber to listen to the rest of this question. If the hon.

This year’s starts are...

Social Mobility Commission (4 Dec 2017)

Angela Rayner: I thank the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) for securing this urgent question. Once again, this Prime Minister is not for turning up, and nor is the Education Secretary. No wonder the former chair of the commission said that No. 10 was no longer listening. Perhaps the Minister can actually answer the questions the chair raised in his resignation letter. Are the Government...

Industrial Strategy (27 Nov 2017)

Mark Prisk: Unlike my former Secretary of State, the right hon.

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Chris Bryant: .... In particular, I am enormously grateful to the right hon. Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire (Stephen Crabb), whom I think of as a friend.
