Housing, Communities and Local Government: New Homes: Carbon Emissions and Energy Efficiency (24 Feb 2020)

Andrew Selous: British architects such as Bill Dunster are building competitively priced, zero energy bill homes today that not only emit no carbon emissions, but are massively helpful to poorer families, so what will the Government do to push our oligopolistic and rather luddite house builders to start building the houses of tomorrow, not of yesterday?

Examples of...

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: Churches (12 Feb 2020)

These churches have proved effective at reaching people who do not normally engage with church, and at reaching young people...

Persecution of Christians (6 Feb 2020)

Andrew Selous: It is my understanding that the Government have agreed to all the recommendations in the Bishop of Truro’s report. Recommendation 8 says: “Be prepared to impose sanctions against perpetrators of FoRB abuses.” Can the Minister set out a little of the Government’s thinking on how that might be applied? If she cannot, will she very kindly place a letter on this issue in the Library for...

Persecution of Christians (6 Feb 2020)

We are right to hold this debate today, because, as others have mentioned, the evidence shows...

Andrew Selous: Before I answer the hon. Gentleman, I would like to pay a short tribute to my predecessor, Caroline Spelman, who demonstrated humanity, helpfulness and humour, all qualities I will do my best to emulate in this role. This is a timely question from the hon. Gentleman, in LGBT history month. The Church has worked with Stonewall to produce the “Valuing all God’s children” guidance, which...

Church Commissioners: LGBT+ Christians in the UK (6 Feb 2020)

Church Commissioners: St Mary's Graveyard, Stoke Mandeville (6 Feb 2020)

Friend that an agreement has been reached between the Secretary of State for Transport and the Archbishops’ Council about the exhumation of graves and the reburial of remains in consecrated ground. I can assure my hon. Friend that this will be done with dignity and respect.

Church Commissioners: St Mary's Graveyard, Stoke Mandeville (6 Feb 2020)

Andrew Selous: I am extremely sorry that Mrs Bradley found out about the exhumation of her great great grandfather by accident, and we will announce the location of reinterment in consecrated ground in due course. I can tell my hon. Friend that in all cases this will be as near as possible to the original grave or graveyard and that the law requires that HS2 put up a memorial for all those who are reinterred.
