Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Alan Brown: I am sure that the Leader of the House is aware that there are Conservative MPs who believe that cutting corporation tax somehow increases tax take.

HS2 Update (17 Jul 2017)

Alan Brown: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of his statement, and for his honesty in admitting that today’s proceedings are yet another Government cock-up, which is quite the theme.
