Written Answers — Department for Education: Schools: Tynemouth (13 Feb 2017)

Petition - Closure of Cambuslang Jobcentre: Holocaust Memorial Museum (9 Feb 2017)

Edward Leigh: The holocaust is one of the most difficult experiences in our history to commemorate in stone. For its sheer enormity and depravity, it defies adequate description, and transferring this into the built environment is all the more difficult.

I am not saying that everything that the FA does is wrong; it does many good things, which I will touch on in the time available.

Member for Harrow West for his explanation of amendment 29, which would add all 326 billing authorities to the definition of a relevant authority in subsection (1), and would mean that an infrastructure supplement could be levied by billing authorities, and not just mayoral combined authorities and the Greater London Authority.

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Relief for telecommunications infrastructure (9 Feb 2017)

Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes Bill [Lords]: Asset protection for unincorporated businesses (9 Feb 2017)

Craig Mackinlay: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair and to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Buck. The experience of the hon. Member for Ross, Skye and Lochaber comes through very clearly. I hope I can offer some help to the Committee. I realise that this is a complex area, but the hon. Gentleman’s new clause does not actually encompass the extent of the problem, which goes further. Under the old...

He reminded me that, unhelpfully, said law does not apply to the Palace of Westminster. The Minister mentioned kicking a can, and I remember playing kick the can in the street as a young boy. Perhaps you can provide us with a can, Ms Buck, and we can have a game after we...
