Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure (5 Jul 2018)

Mark Menzies: I have a wonderful piece of transport infrastructure in my constituency called Blackpool airport. Will the Secretary of State tell me what steps will be taken to ensure that with a third runway at Heathrow, we will see improved connectivity to my part of the north-west?

Nuclear Power (4 Jun 2018)

Mark Menzies: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement and continued support for the nuclear industry. Will he look at Springfields, the nuclear fuel manufacturer, which employs 1,200 people in my constituency, and do everything he can to ensure that the next generation of nuclear fuel is made right here in the UK?

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Mark Menzies: For over six months, my constituents have been using bus services during electrification of the Blackpool to Preston railway line. The current chaos therefore comes at the worst possible time when people were looking forward to a good service, and they are absolutely gutted. Can the Secretary of State assure me that they will be able to enjoy the multi-million pound investment that has gone...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Co-operatives (23 May 2018)

Mark Menzies: Does the Secretary of State agree that women’s co-operatives have an important role to play in tackling poverty? I encourage her Department to do much more in this area.

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Mark Menzies: I want to keep my words short. It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Wolverhampton North East (Emma Reynolds). I would like to comment on the words of the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) because he said that it may be five years before he is back here fighting this cause. I hope it is not that length of time because, while I disagreed with some of the sentiments in what...

Sainsbury and Asda Merger (30 Apr 2018)

Mark Menzies: For 11 years before I entered this place I worked in the head office of Asda, alongside my hon. Friend the Member for Shipley (Philip Davies), in the constituency of the right hon. Member for Leeds Central (Hilary Benn). I can therefore understand the concerns of those who work there today. The Minister cannot provide assurances about the future of the head office—indeed, I do not...

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Mark Menzies: I welcome this debate and the Government’s commitment to a new industrial strategy. This is a significant opportunity for us to chart a course for UK business, so that it does not merely adapt to global trends but is at the forefront, building new industries and leading global change. This is a broad debate, but the central theme is how the Government can work together with industry to...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (18 Apr 2018)

Mark Menzies: The Department for International Development is a founder member of the Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund. The Government have led the way in funding this work, supporting regional and global networks working with groups disproportionately affected by HIV. Currently, the RCNF can only afford to fund 50% of the quality proposals it sees. Will my right hon. Friend commit to continuing to...

Kerslake Arena Attack Review (28 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: As my right hon. Friend the Minister has already mentioned, this tragedy went beyond Manchester and into Lancashire. Indeed, the first two victims to be named—indeed, the youngest victim—were from the constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for South Ribble (Seema Kennedy) who, as a mum of two young children, asked me to mention it today. Georgina Callander and Saffie Rose...

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Universal Credit (13 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: I do not approach the matters in the statutory instruments lightly, and I will tell hon. Members why. I was brought up by a single parent who was widowed a month before I was born, who worked shifts in a factory and who got by on a widow’s pension, child benefit and the money she made and by managing that money carefully, so I know only too well the impact that such changes can have....

Mark Menzies: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (13 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: What engagement is the Secretary of State having with a Canadian company called Brookfield, the likely buyer of Springfields nuclear fuels in my constituency, which manufactures nuclear fuel for the UK and provides over 1,200 well-paid jobs?

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: I thank the Minister for the way in which she has engaged with me and other colleagues who had concerns about the Bill. She has made time to meet us, with her officials, and addressed many of the concerns that we have raised with her in private. I want to put my thanks on record.

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy for bringing forward the Bill and for his hard work on delivering what the Conservative party promised—dealing with unfairness in the energy market. His dedication, and that of my right hon. Friend the Minister for Energy and Clean Growth, to ensuring that the most vulnerable...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: My hon. Friend makes a valid point. We would not want a situation in which energy companies, especially big energy companies, seek to delay the implementation of the measure for that reason through appeals to the Competition and Markets Authority. Perhaps the Government could consider having a time-limited window of appeal lasting for a matter of weeks in which any appeal could be looked at...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: I thank the Secretary of State for his intervention. Steps like that seek to reassure me. As the Bill makes progress, I will follow its course in detail, particularly on this matter. I want to ensure that the Bill is effective and does not end up disappointing where we hope that it will succeed.

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: I will not, as I want to make a bit more progress. I would struggle to support a Bill that does not address that crucial point. I ask the Government to reconsider and amend the Bill accordingly in Committee. Before I sit down, if the hon. Member for Swansea West (Geraint Davies) wishes to do so he can intervene. He does not.

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: The hon. Lady is making suggestions to improve the Bill, so what role does she see for the Competition and Markets Authority to ensure that consumers’ interests are paramount?

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Mark Menzies: Can my right hon. Friend assure me that any changes to the price cap will also take into account those on prepayment meters, so that if, for example, the price cap changes every six months, that is taken into account for those on prepayment meters or prepayment cards and they are not disadvantaged?
