Kevan took part in an Adjournment Debate on Wednesday 9 February, which had been secured by Pat Glass, Member of Parliament for North West Durham.

Kevan said, “In a constituency such as mine, which is a rural constituency…many people do not have a choice about whether to use oil, because there is no access to gas or another alternative fuel.”
