Onshore Wind Turbines (13 Oct 2010)

Mark Pawsey: Is not the problem the fact that the determination of where such things are sited is left to local planning authorities?

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Local Government Financing (29 Jun 2010)

Mark Pawsey: The message is going out loud and clear: this kind of waste cannot go on and should not happen.

Mark Pawsey: in his first term, he has now taken the sensible option of a safe seat. Previous Members include Andy King and, before that, someone well known to me, since that person is my father-James Pawsey, who was first elected for Rugby in 1979.
