It’s not hard to find reasons to be frustrated with the Government, but we are still delivering for the British people.

Other countries manage to do this far better than we do; it is not right that Britain should fall behind on such a simple act.
Laura Sandys: We should support the Heineken of decarbonisation – Carbon Capture reaches parts that other technologies can’t reach.
Britain has a proud environmental record. Here is another opportunity to lead the world.
Mark Stockwell: The plastics ban. It may go down well at middle-class dinner parties. But it won’t tackle the real environmental issues.
The Government should resist Defra’s enthusiasm for bans and emphasise public education, plus the enforcement of existing anti-littering laws, instead.
In the second of three articles, the Weston-super-Mare MP sets out plans on tax, housing deficits and debt to help achieve inter-generational justice.
We have the technology. Being a world leader in carbon capture and storage attractive can make us a destination for inward investment in clean energy.
Rebecca Lowe: Nationalisation. Ask not only: would the state do it better? But also – should it be involved at all?
It was darkly funny to see Labour MPs claiming that nationalisation could fix signals failures when track infrastructure is owned and controlled by the state.
We have demonstrated in government that, with rigorous dedication to competition and innovation, this conservative mission can be fulfilled.
Bob Seely: Yes, Brexit and leadership are important. But so’s everything else. Here are some ideas for the future.
Scrap HS2. Integrate social care. Abolish NI. Reverse police cuts. Consider a new Bill of Rights. And much, much more.
Jake Berry: What I found on my Northern Powerhouse tour. Resilience, skill, innovation and success. Plus an appetite for Brexit.
But more money and powers need to be given directly to the North to drive further progress.
Terry Barnes: So you think May has problems? They’re nothing compared to the knifings and plots that engulf Malcolm Turnbull
With half his ministry on the backbenches, he looks isolated – and in denial.
A third of consumers internationally are now choosing to ‘buy from brands they believe are doing social or environmental good’.
We offer social housing with traditional design and also saving our tenants around £500 a year on fuel bills. The Government should back this approach.
If we want to signal a commitment to sustainable, low-carbon growth strategies, the Government could introduce a green sovereign bond.
If Ministers believe that 30p on annual bills is too high a price, they should seek the right number – and a deal to get us there.
