Backbench Business: Snares (21 Jul 2016)

Rachael Maskell: .... Today would not be soon enough. That view is supported by 87% of vets. As we have heard, 95% of landowners do not use snares and nor do 250 municipal authorities. As my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol East set out, the RSPB, Network Rail and many other authorities no longer use snares. The reason is that they are indiscriminate, inhumane and the law covering them is not applied...

Businesses now look to locate where they can receive a broadband service with...

EU Referendum: UK Steel Industry — [Mrs Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (13 Jul 2016)

Anna Soubry: ...real evidence that those rules are working. We need good reporting, so that we can come back to say that we are absolutely certain that the new procurement rules are producing the results we want.

Claire Perry: ...Member for Colchester (Will Quince) will forgive me, I will try to address directly the points made by the hon.
