Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Electronic Communications Code (1 Jul 2021)

Heather Wheeler: I thank the Minister for his answer. He will be aware that thousands of farmers, churches and community groups who host mobile telecoms infrastructure on their land have faced financial hardship because of the 2017 ECC reform, with some seeing enforced rent reductions of up to 90%, as has happened in my constituency. What measures is he planning to support those who face losing these critical...

Public Bill Committee: Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 54 - Imposing conditions on public processions (8 Jun 2021)

Heather Wheeler: I wonder where the constituents are coming from for the hon. Member for Stockton North. I can assure him that in South Derbyshire my mailbag is full of mail from people saying, “Please get on with this.

Policing and Prevention of Violence against Women (15 Mar 2021)

Heather Wheeler: I thank my right hon. Friend for her statement and extend my heartfelt condolences to Sarah Everard’s family at this time. Does she agree with me and my constituents that it is frankly absurd for the Labour party to call for tougher sentences against rapists while, in the same breath, opposing the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, which delivers exactly that?

Covid-19 Update (9 Feb 2021)

Heather Wheeler: I thank my right hon. Friend for his statement. As I have so many constituents who work in the aviation industry, this is important information. I am thankful for the now ramped up provision of vaccine centres in South Derbyshire, but how will he ensure that housebound residents receive their jab? There seem to be gaps in communications between primary care networks, district health...

Armed Forces Bill (8 Feb 2021)

I must declare my interests as a member of the Royal British Legion; my father was a second world war navigator in the RAF; and my most prized possession is my grandfather’s annotated Bible from his time in a prisoner of war camp in the first world war. The debt of gratitude we owe our armed forces is...

Equitable Life (21 Jan 2021)

Heather Wheeler: I am afraid we are all here again, having another debate about Equitable Life and the dreadful way that our constituents have been dealt with. To begin with, I thank my hon.

I congratulate the Backbench Business Committee on agreeing to...

Covid-19 (12 Jan 2021)

Heather Wheeler: It is a pleasure to speak again today about covid-related matters. To be frank, the supply of the vaccine in South Derbyshire has been slow, but now the area is gearing up. Those in the northern part of the constituency are being invited to the Derby Arena—the velodrome—which I am extremely pleased is up and running, and from the end of this week, we will have a stand-alone centre in...
