We have ploughed £170 million back into social housing schemes this financial year, which the last...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Jul 2010)

Lady raises an important case, but I have to tell her that not all Labour councils were able to deliver the free swimming pledge. I am afraid...

If we set those two propositions on one side, the welcome fact is that our right honourable friend David Cameron now has the chance to break free from the ghetto mentality of some-certainly too many-within our own party. Our new Prime Minister needs to escape the damaging psychological constraints of...

Global Poverty (1 Jul 2010)

Tobias Ellwood: As we are exchanging quotes, let me put on the record the truth about what happened regarding Gleneagles. ActionAid said that "David Cameron is battling hard to safeguard the Gleneagles legacy... Cameron can hold his head high as the UK is standing by its aid commitments."
