Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Bob Neill: a convinced devolutionist. I hope that we can look again at some of the sensible and practical recommendations for fiscal devolution in that first report.

Homelessness (29 Jan 2020)

Anneliese Dodds:, which is very problematic. It is based on a very short-term approach, which is failing many people who need those services. I will set out why in the time I have left. I welcomed the stamp duty surcharge, especially once the Government had resiled from their previous decision to slash the amount coming from it by two thirds. At least it has been put back to the previous amount. I...

Some of my fellow students declined to go because they felt that it would be too upsetting, but I considered it my duty to go and to bear witness.

Member for North Cornwall...

Growth Strategy — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (21 Jan 2020)

John Redwood:, property often becomes people’s principal asset, which gives them some wealth and financial stability.

I do not think that the Government are even maximising the revenues from...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (9 Jan 2020)

Lord Flight: ...and the main problem with the NHS is its management. Nor do I believe that the public would support major increases in taxation.

The Economy (24 Oct 2019)

Andrea Leadsom: .... The GMB dismissed it as threatening “whole communities” and “jobs”, as well as being “utterly unachievable”.

They embarked on a resettlement programme of gigantic proportions, which...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day): Motion to Adjourn (14 Oct 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...has real teeth and is not just warm words and another layer of bureaucracy. We also have serious concerns about the proposed electoral integrity Bill. Clearly, we should do whatever is necessary to stamp out any abuse of the system, but we must also take care that the scale of changes is proportionate to the problem and does not have unintended consequences. I am not convinced that...
