  1. Hold a Public Inquiry into state pension age changes for women

    The government responded on 24 May 2024

    State Pension age changes have been considered by the Ombudsman, Parliament and the Courts. There is therefore no need for a Public Inquiry, and it would not be good use of public money.

  2. Raise Motorway Speed Limits to 100mph and Dual Carriageways to 80mph

    The government responded on 22 May 2024

  3. Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the 1984 Sikh massacres

    The government responded on 22 May 2024
