Doncaster Sheffield Airport (24 Oct 2022)

Nicholas Fletcher: .... Friend. That just proves that the airport is used by people from all across the north of England and is such a fantastic asset. Peel has been stubborn—I believe desperately so—and its board, mainly John Whittaker and Robert Hough, will have to live with what it is trying to do and what its legacy will be. I am told that John Whittaker is a good man, and he can stop this at the click...

John Martin McDonnell: ..., with overcrowding on a level we have not seen in maybe decades. We have homelessness, and there is no longer access to housing via council housing because our council housing stock has mainly been sold off.

Out-of-Turn Supplementary Estimates 2022-23 (24 Oct 2022)

John Redwood: ...It is quite true that, from Chancellor Darling onwards, quantitative easing decisions have always been jointly taken by Chancellors of the Exchequer and Governors of the Bank of England.

John Redwood: ...there is a simple, relatively low tax that takes care of a huge problem—social care. Indeed, when the Government compounded the difficulty by saying that in the first instance the tax would be mainly used for the health service, and by some magic that would drop away and it would go to social care, it all became incredible to me.
