  • Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (29 Jun 2020)
    Sheryll Murray: Many people in my constituency rely on their summer earnings as a contribution towards their annual budget to make ends meet. Tourism is very seasonal, but what it brings has a knock-on effect across all sectors in Cornwall. Will my hon. Friend look at what more can be done if the summer does not produce the savings people need for the lean months?

  • Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (17 Mar 2020)
    Sheryll Murray: The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed this month that Iran has nearly tripled its stockpile of enriched uranium since November, in flagrant violation of the 2015 nuclear deal.

    Sheryll Murray: I thank all hon. Members for attending this debate, which has been one of the best-attended fisheries debates I have seen in quite a long time.

We are looking to both the Minister and...
  • UK Fisheries — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Feb 2020)
    Sheryll Murray: I beg to move, That this House has considered the future of UK fisheries. Since the Fisheries Bill is currently proceeding in the other place, I felt that it was timely to call for this debate to discuss the massive opportunities that a future fisheries regime can provide the UK as an independent coastal state. The Fisheries Bill means that, for the first time in almost 40 years, the Minister...

He went on to say that, with small quantities...
  • UK Fisheries — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (12 Feb 2020)
