Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 10 (17 Apr 2024)

The APPG also found that only one in 11 police cars have access to a defibrillator.

Treasury: Safe Hands Plans (19 Mar 2024)

Nick Smith: My experience of the FCA and the Safe Hands funeral plan fiasco is that it took six months to reply to my freedom of information request and pleaded commercial confidentiality to key questions, and that, despite being warned, the Treasury failed to support consumers moving from an unregulated sector into regulation.
