Budget Resolutions

Instead, we heard that councils could borrow an extra £1 billion for home building, even though £20 billion would be available if the cap was scrapped; that we would remove stamp duty for people who can afford houses—nice if someone has the money to start with, but no help if people are just...

Global LGBT Rights

The reports of a Government crackdown are worrying. I remember raising the reports of a Government crackdown in Azerbaijan in 2006, after one of my first visits there. The ambassador’s comments are reassuring, but we need more than just warm words. We need some concrete action from the Azeri...

Government Policy and the Proceedings of the House

Constituents can agree or disagree with their local Member of Parliament, but it is important that they know how their local Member of Parliament views an issue and how they vote on that issue when it comes before them. Voting in that sense is a cathartic process: it allows us to support the...

Scheduling of Parliamentary Business

I wonder about the responsibility of the Government, and what this looks like for constituents out in the wider world. Today my constituents were queuing around the block for more than an hour, not for a gig or a music activity, but to see the local doctor in Peacehaven. That is a regular thing...

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway

He said that employees had borrowed money for cars on their credit cards and could not afford to go on strike, and he went on and on.
