Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: School Funding (6 Nov 2018)

Martin Vickers: I welcome the extra £400 million that the Chancellor found in his Budget for school funding. North East Lincolnshire has two nursery schools that have been particularly badly affected by the current funding regime. The hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn) and I have met the Education Minister responsible, but it would be helpful if the Chancellor could arrange for us to meet one of...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Midlands Engine (5 Nov 2018)

Martin Vickers: The midlands engine covers approximately two thirds of Lincolnshire—the county council area—but my constituency is served by the two unitary authorities in the north. Co-ordination of economic policies falls to both the Greater Lincolnshire local enterprise partnership and the Humber local enterprise partnership. Both the local authorities and LEPs would like to maintain the status quo....

Business of the House (1 Nov 2018)

Martin Vickers: The chair of the National Police Chiefs Council, Sara Thornton, is reported in this morning’s media as having suggested that the police should refocus and concentrate more on burglary, shoplifting and violent crime. That is something my constituents would widely support. Will the Leader of the House find time for a debate on this so that the Government can make their position clear?

Exiting the European Union: Support for Businesses (25 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: The port of Immingham in my constituency, measured by tonnage, is the largest in the UK. When I meet businesses on the port, they constantly tell me about the opportunities they foresee for Brexit to extend trade through the port. Will the Minister, and the Government as a whole, support them by talking more about the opportunities of Brexit, rather than talking down those opportunities as...

Business of the House (18 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: On Monday, I met representatives from the National Federation of Retail Newsagents and they echoed the concerns of shopkeepers in my Cleethorpes constituency that retail crime is not being prioritised by some police forces. They also expressed concern that, with the growing demands on the police, perhaps from the further extension of hate crime legislation, retail crime might slip even...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Negligence (18 Oct 2018)

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (18 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: The Secretary of State’s previous answer leads nicely into my question because he recently visited my constituency and met young Alfie Royston, who is doing so much to encourage other young people in the area to deal with the menace of plastic. Does he agree that we need to do more to harness the energy and enthusiasm of our young people in order to combat the problem?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Leaving the EU: National Audit Office (18 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: I thank my hon. Friend for his comprehensive answer. I know he shares my view that the sooner we leave the EU, the better and that a longer transition is totally unacceptable. Does he agree that it is important that the NAO is able to work with similar bodies, both in the EU and outside it, post Brexit?

East Coast Main Line Investment — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I congratulate the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) on securing this timely and important debate. Sadly, my constituency does not lie on the direct route of the east coast main line, but it is heavily reliant on it, as am I. Looking around, most of the Members in the Chamber will be very familiar with...

East Coast Main Line Investment — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: The hon. Gentleman regularly comes to the all-party parliamentary group on rail, which I chair. I am very familiar with the proposals that he has been championing for a number of years. I am demanding now and have been demanding ever since I arrived here that more investment goes into the routes that serve not only my constituency, but other routes off the main lines. I was rather...

East Coast Main Line Investment — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: I am very disappointed to hear that. I put three alternatives that the Minister could consider in my notes, and one of them was to extend one or two of those new services to Lincoln through to Grimsby and Cleethorpes. Given what the hon. Lady is saying, it might not be possible. The Minister will be aware that an open-access operator has shown an interest and has previously been in...

East Coast Main Line Investment — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (17 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: I was not intending to embark on a pro or anti-nationalisation debate, but I remind the hon. Gentleman that since privatisation—I cannot remember, and the Minister can probably give the exact figure—hundreds of millions of pounds from the private sector has been invested in the rail network. The simple reality is that if we nationalise the rail network, which I sincerely hope we do not,...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Arthritis: Children (16 Oct 2018)

Backbench Business: Freeports — [David Hanson in the Chair] (11 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson, and I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Mr Clarke) on securing this important debate at a particularly opportune time. The UK is an island nation and has always been very dependent on our ports; indeed, 90% of all our trade by volume, and 75% of our trade by value, passes...

Rail Review: Terms of Reference (11 Oct 2018)

Martin Vickers: I welcome the statement. At the moment, there is much competition to gain a franchise, but very little competition once the franchise has been granted. Will the review take account of that and introduce more competition into the actual provision of services?
