Since being in Parliament, I have taken part in numerous Commons debates and asked several oral and written parliamentary questions.
Copies of all the speeches and questions I have made since becoming a Member of Parliament can be found here:
Even though speaking in the House of Commons is high profile, most of the work is done in Committees. It is during Committees that close scrutiny of government legislation can take place.
There is a Commons Select Committee for each government department and I am currently a member of the Environmental Audit Committee which examines the extent to which the policies and programmes of government departments and non-departmental public bodies contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development.
More information about the Environmental Audit Committee can be found http://www.parliament.uk/eacom.
