Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Trade, Exports, Innovation and Productivity (13 Jan 2016)

Amanda Milling: I am thrilled that my right hon. Friend will join me in visiting ATP. I know that the company will be incredibly pleased. I shall send it a message this afternoon.

M6: Rail Electrification Programme (10 Dec 2015)

Business of the House (26 Nov 2015)

Police and Fire Shared Services — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (3 Nov 2015)

Amanda Milling: Are we not also accountable to the public? If the public see us purchasing or procuring two things that are exactly the same, are they not going to say, “That is waste and there are savings to be made”? We can get rid of the duplication.
