Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Sep 2020)

Rob Butler: ...of Lords. The best mitigation for the village would undoubtedly be a bored mined tunnel, but that has been refused. Does my right hon. Friend agree with that decision? If so, will he ensure that HS2 Ltd and its contractors works constructively with the Wendover HS2 Action Group to minimise noise pollution and avoid damaging the aquifer by other means?

Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Mar 2020)

Rob Butler: Does the Prime Minister share my concern that the contractors for HS2 Ltd are not following the very clear Government advice on coronavirus?

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