Fox-Sky Merger - Statement (20 Jul 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...decision is finally reached. Recently, compelling arguments for this have been made in the other place by my right honourable friend the Member for Doncaster North and the right honourable Members for Twickenham and for Rushcliffe—noble Lords will be aware that that is a pretty distinguished cross-party alliance. The truth is that the Murdochs have a history of regulatory...

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Liam Byrne: ...sector investment. Our capital markets are not patient enough and do not invest in long-term growth, but sadly the debate about patient capital stalled at about the time the right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) left office. We need a new debate about how we encourage more long-termism in the City and elsewhere, including in our banking sector, because at the moment we do not...

School Funding Formula (London) (28 Jun 2017)

James Berry: ...needs. Kingston Council is trying hard to address the issue by supporting applications for two new free schools—two special schools, one in Kingston and one in the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias)—so that we can better deal with high-needs children in borough, but this matter needs to be addressed. We need more funding for high-needs...

Preventing Avoidable Sight Loss — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (28 Mar 2017)

David Mowat: ...clearly massively important. We can debate numbers— the hon. Member for Burnley (Julie Cooper) just talked about £28 billion—but the key figure is the statistic that my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) started with. Some 20 people a month are losing their sight, whether due to lack of prevention or lack of early treatment, in ways that are preventable....

I am proud to share this Chamber with all colleagues who have spoken today, although I take exception to the...

Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Ruth Cadbury)—have raised these...

Sri Lanka: UN Human Rights Council (28 Feb 2017)

James Berry: Sri Lanka, effectively in return for being brought in from the cold in diplomatic circles. The hon. Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting) was there, as well as my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) and me. We were all clear that the resolution did not go as far as the Tamil community wanted but that without consensus, there would have been no resolution at all. It...

Lee Valley Regional Park (Amendment) (22 Feb 2017)

Stella Creasy: ...constituents who are deeply concerned about air quality in London. The value of our green space therefore becomes paramount not just to those who live in the area—[Interruption.] I see the hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) jumping up and down.

Friend the Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) and I had a debate almost exactly a year ago in this Chamber. She realises that it will cost £30 million simply to refurbish Kneller Hall. We are currently looking at three other...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Israeli Settlements (9 Feb 2017)

Emily Thornberry: ... the Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Richard Burden) and from the hon. Member for Reigate (Crispin Blunt), but if I could pick one favourite speech it would be that of the hon. Member for Twickenham (Dr Mathias) who spoke passionately, articulately and without notes, and I commend her for that. It may be that other people watching the debate will have other favourites, but her speech...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (8 Feb 2017)

Lord Moynihan: ...number and row number, and in virtually every case they have to be reprinted every day for matinee or evening performances in the theatre. It is not technically difficult simply to add a reference number to the ticket, which would allow the owner of the ticket to check with Twickenham or whoever it might be that the ticket is valid. It is a very small price to pay in order to counter the...

Brexit: New Partnership - Statement (2 Feb 2017)

Lord Bridges of Headley: I am very sorry they disagree with that, because those were the words of Sir Vince Cable. It is what the Liberal Democrats themselves have been saying. I entirely agree with the guru of Twickenham. I am so sorry that we disagree on this fundamental point.
