Scotland: Covid-19: UK-wide Response (9 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: What discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on co-ordinating a UK-wide response to the covid-19 outbreak.

Scotland: Covid-19: UK-wide Response (9 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: There is no doubt that some confusion is caused when the different Administrations come to different conclusions based on our advice about quarantine, numbers of people who can gather together and so on. The Minister has just spoken about a UK-wide approach. Would it not be better if some of these regulations were decisions for the UK Government?

Birmingham Attacks and Extinction Rebellion Protests (7 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: Like citizens up and down the country, my Cleethorpes constituents have genuine concerns about climate change. However, on the whole they support the balanced approach that the Government are taking, unlike those in XR. Many among the leadership of XR have political motives and seek to undermine the institutions that hold our society together. I urge the Minister to do all he can to identify...

Kickstart Scheme (3 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: Three jobcentres serve my constituency: in Barton, Immingham and Grimsby. I visited the Grimsby site a couple of weeks ago, and the staff there are enthusiastic about the work they are doing to encourage young people. One thing that cannot happen under the present arrangements, of course, is the usual programme of job fairs and similar group undertakings. Will the Secretary of State...

Fisheries Bill [Lords] (1 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: My hon. Friend and I have met our local fishing representatives on a number of occasions. The point that comes over time and time again is the lack of fairness in the present arrangements. The other point that I think needs emphasising is that the EU’s attempts during the current negotiations to link trade to fishing quotas is totally unacceptable. Would she acknowledge that?

Health and Social Care: Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust (1 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: What assessment he has made of the adequacy of funding for hospitals in the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust.

Health and Social Care: Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust (1 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: I thank the Minister for replying and also for meeting me and my hon. Friend the Member for Great Grimsby (Lia Nici) before the recess. May I emphasise the importance of the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby that serves my constituency as well? It needs £150 million to £200 million of major infrastructure work to avoid infrastructure failure. I urge him to consider that and bear...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Parkinson's Disease: Health Services (1 Sep 2020)

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Parkinson's Disease: Health Services (1 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment he has made of the adequacy of access to specialised neurology services during the covid-19 outbreak for advanced Parkinson’s patients; and what steps he is taking to resume those services.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Parkinson's Disease: Health Services (1 Sep 2020)

Martin Vickers: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what estimate his Department has made of the number of Parkinson’s patients who may have experienced a deterioration in their condition during the covid-19 outbreak; and what guidance he is providing to help identify patients in urgent need.

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Swansea East (Carolyn Harris), who has made a powerful contribution to the debate. Like many colleagues, I should like to put on record my thanks to all the key workers who have done so much for all our constituencies up and down the country in recent weeks—not just those we immediately think of such as health and care workers, but many people...

BBC (21 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: Over recent years, I would describe myself as having moved from being a friend of the BBC to being an extremely critical friend of the BBC, and I tend to think that, to some extent, it has lost its way. The director-general has today replied to a letter sent by the Blue Collar Conservatives group, in which he says that “we will continue to deliver new programmes that represent and reflect...

Cabinet Office: Civil Service Reform (16 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: What plans he has to relocate (a) civil service and (b) policymaker roles outside London.

Cabinet Office: Civil Service Reform (16 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: In his recent Ditchley speech, my right hon. Friend referred to transferring energy sector civil servants and policy makers to Humberside. Will he outline what progress he is making with that, and will he push forward and ensure that the Cleethorpes constituency plays its part?

Coronavirus Update (14 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: The pandemic has inevitably led to a backlog in other treatments, which is causing anxiety among my constituents. Can my right hon. Friend give an assurance that the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust and the two clinical commissioning groups that serve my constituency will have the additional resources that they need to meet the backlog?

Business of the House (9 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: Tomorrow I shall be visiting a beauty salon in Cleethorpes. I hasten to add that this will not be for treatment, although I am sure that hon. Members would say I am probably in need of it. In answer to an earlier question, my right hon. Friend said that businesses must open safely. I think that beauty salons deserve an explanation as to what is needed in order to open safely. They are...

Economic Update (8 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: Having question 74, it is difficult to think of something that has not been mentioned yet, but it is a fair bet that up until now no one has quoted the Grimsby Telegraph, which last week said, after the Prime Minister’s speech: “Now put your money where your mouth is Boris!” The Chancellor has delivered on that today. The article finished by saying: “Give us the opportunity and...

Treasury: Investment and Economic Growth: Northern Lincolnshire (7 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: What fiscal steps he is taking to (a) attract investment and (b) achieve economic growth in northern Lincolnshire.

Treasury: Investment and Economic Growth: Northern Lincolnshire (7 Jul 2020)

Martin Vickers: I thank the Minister for that. The Treasury is giving considerable support to our area, such as through the Greater Grimsby town deal. We are hoping for favourable designation for freeport status, but the most pressing case at the moment is support for the Able marine energy park in northern Lincolnshire. Modest support from the Treasury could help to create 2,000 jobs. Will the Minister, or...

BBC Regional Politics Coverage (22 Jun 2020)

Martin Vickers: It would be remiss of me not to join colleagues in praising our local newspapers—a useful thing for any politician to do. As my hon. Friend the Member for Great Grimsby (Lia Nici) will know, we are served by the daily Grimsby Telegraph, which is magnificent. We are never, ever critical of it. Over the years, I have regarded myself as a critical friend of the BBC, although in the last year...
