Business of the House (23 Feb 2017)

David Lidington: I am afraid that I cannot yet give the hon. Lady a date for the summer recess. In my experience, my hon.

I will try to give the hon. Lady and the whole House notice of the summer recess dates as soon as I can. I...

Lee Valley Regional Park (Amendment) (22 Feb 2017)

Stella Creasy: ...Kingston. The legislation that the hon. Gentleman proposes is fundamentally misguided, because he misses the point about the value of regional parks for London and other areas.
