Petition - Changes to Local Bus Services in Torbay: Guards on Merseyrail Trains (22 Nov 2017)

Dan Carden: that.” I am grateful to Liam for his assistance in the lead-up to this debate. Local politicians rightly speak up about the pitiful investment in public infrastructure in the north. Tory cuts in revenue support grants to local councils of the city region mean that the local transport levy has been cut by £32 million in real terms, which represents a third of the annual local...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Liz Kendall: ...from London and the south-east. Indeed, those are the only two regions in the country that have seen their economies get back to pre-crisis levels.

For...

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Phil Wilson: a full-service airport. For me, therefore—this is a key point—regional airports must seek a diversification strategy to ensure financial sustainability and to continue their wider role as economic catalysts, supported by public sector investment and infrastructure. That is the approach that the Peel Group is taking. Besides KLM, Eastern Airways and Loganair, other users of...

Rural Communities in Scotland: Broadband — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (22 Nov 2017)

Martin Whitfield: ...more as a household utility than as a luxury. Our future generations will be fully engaged in a digitised economy, so we must ensure that they are fully prepared and no one is left behind.

TV Licence Fee — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 Nov 2017)

I have enormous respect for her—I consider her a friend—but I...
