Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Ranil Jayawardena: ...supercharge local communities. Although the company has not yet supercharged Hook, which is where it is based—I hope it is listening and will do so shortly—it has agreed to supercharge Hartley Wintney and Phoenix Green, just down the road.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Investing in Town Centres in Upper Bann (13 Sep 2016)

Sinéad Bradley: what will revive the high street in those areas. For example, I know that the council invests in Lurgan show.

Jim Shannon: ...“Let your fellow Protestants in or let them die.” The act horrified King James himself, because he had given no instruction for that to happen and in no way approved.

The Mountjoy rammed and breached the boom and the ships moved in and relieved the city. After...

Backbench Business: Channel 4 (19 Jul 2016)

Graham Jones: Any decisions specific to Channel 4 need to be thought through. I am not for immediately saying, “Oh yes, that’s a good idea,” but as an MP from the Manchester region, I would welcome investment in my region and taking the headquarters out of London, as was done with the BBC. Of course, every MP would want industry to be relocated to their constituency from somewhere else....

Nuisance Callers - Question (11 May 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...mandatory caller line identification. The problem with fines is that they are either very small and do not hurt the company or so big that they put the company out of business and it reappears as a phoenix company.
