Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Infrastructure: North England (17 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: Notwithstanding what the Minister has just said, when I attended the UK Major Ports Group reception on Monday evening, the port director for the Humber stressed to me how urgently needed east-west connections from Immingham and the Humber ports to Liverpool and Manchester were. He talked about trans-Pennine tunnels and so on, which are decades off, so can the Minister reassure him that action...

HS2 Update (15 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: Network Rail purchases much of its rail track from the Scunthorpe steelworks in the neighbouring constituency to mine. What efforts will my right hon. Friend make to ensure that British manufacturers are used in the production of most of the HS2 infrastructure?

Business of the House (3 Nov 2016)

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Nuisance Calls (3 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: I thank my right hon. Friend for the update and the moves the Government have made so far. In the last Parliament I was vice-chairman of the all-party group on nuisance calls and we produced a report containing many recommendations. What other work is being done to implement them?

Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: This week is Offshore Wind Week. The development of the offshore wind sector is vital to my Cleethorpes constituency. Will my right hon. Friend assure the industry and my constituents that the Government will continue to work with the industry to develop future jobs for young people, with a particular emphasis on training?

National College for Wind Energy (1 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: Will the hon. Lady acknowledge that, although we have spoken a lot about getting our young people trained up for these industries, there are many people who have past experience in the offshore oil and gas industry and require only modest retraining? If the retraining courses were available, that would open up new opportunities for them.

National College for Wind Energy (1 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: As always, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I congratulate the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn)—my Member of Parliament—on securing the debate and on outlining the importance of such a college to the Humber region and, even more important, to the Grimsby-Cleethorpes area, which is very much dependent on the development of the offshore...

National College for Wind Energy (1 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, but I do not agree. There is an obvious synergy between the various Departments that were merged into the new Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy—BEIS, as I think we are supposed to call it. What matters is that there are spokesmen such as my right hon. Friend the Minister who are determined to develop skills and the...

National College for Wind Energy (1 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: I am very happy to support the hon. Lady. As I mentioned a moment ago, the Grimsby-Cleethorpes area, particularly the rundown areas of Grimsby, are definitely in need of regeneration, which has to come from a public sector-led development. In conclusion, I urge the Minister to give a positive lead. From previous discussions with him, I know how committed he is to training, apprenticeships and...

School Admissions (Special Educational Needs) (1 Nov 2016)

Martin Vickers: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about the access to education, school admissions and support for special educational needs, with particular reference to children diagnosed with autism; and for connected purposes. The Equality Act 2010 exists to protect people of all ages from discrimination. It should prevent disabled people from being treated unfairly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (31 Oct 2016)

Martin Vickers: Two of my constituents have been defrauded of in excess of £60,000, and their cases are not helped by the lack of co-ordination between Action Fraud and the local force. They are unable to get updates on the investigation. What can be done to improve that co-ordination?

Martin Vickers: What steps he is taking to support economic growth outside London and the south-east.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth (25 Oct 2016)

Martin Vickers: I thank the Chancellor for his reply and am encouraged by it, but there has always been a feeling in northern Lincolnshire that we are somewhat peripheral from the northern powerhouse and that the focus has been too much on Leeds and Manchester. Could he reassure us that that is not the case? North East Lincolnshire Council has a number of innovative regeneration projects in process. Will he...

Community Pharmacy in 2016-17 and Beyond (20 Oct 2016)

Martin Vickers: I recognise the difficult decisions the Minister has had to make, but rural pharmacies are going to be particularly hit. He has attempted to sweeten the pill with his access scheme, but it is only a two-year scheme. What support will be forthcoming beyond that?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (20 Oct 2016)

Martin Vickers: Brexit has been widely welcomed by leaders of the fishing industry in the Grimsby-Cleethorpes area. The industry was badly let down in the original negotiations in the 1970s. Can my right hon. Friend assure me that that will not be the case on this occasion?

The Right Hon. Member for Meriden, Representing the Church Commissioners, Was Asked: Business of the House (13 Oct 2016)

Martin Vickers: Services to my constituents provided by North East Lincolnshire Council may well suffer in the near future because the council has been forced to make safe and to maintain a listed building, to the tune of £2 million and rising, after the owners abrogated their responsibilities. Will the Government find time for a debate to consider whether legislative changes are required to avoid this...
