Health and Social Care: Dementia Support (7 May 2019)

Martin Vickers: I thank the Minister for her reply. I recently met representatives of the Alzheimer’s Society, which is, as the Minister will know, pushing forward with a campaign for more support for those suffering from dementia. Can she assure me that, despite what she has just said, this will be one of the main focuses of her Department during the comprehensive spending review?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (7 May 2019)

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Franchising System (2 May 2019)

Martin Vickers: Does the Secretary of State agree that, when we embark on a new franchising system, one of the considerations needs to be the provision of services not just on the main arterial routes but on the secondary routes—such as a direct service from King’s Cross to Cleethorpes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (2 May 2019)

British Steel: EU Emissions Trading Compliance (1 May 2019)

Martin Vickers: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement. It will be particularly welcomed by my many constituents who work at the Scunthorpe works, which, as he highlighted, supplies most of the rail network with track, which of course would have to be imported were the Scunthorpe works to close. Does he agree that this highlights that there is a cost to tackling climate change? It is far better that...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (30 Apr 2019)

Martin Vickers: Small businesses in Cleethorpes are suffering because of yet another two high street bank closures. Individuals and businesses need both the counter services and expert financial advice from banks. Indeed, banks are important to the vitality and viability of our high streets. Will Ministers assist local authorities in establishing financial hubs, where financial institutions can come together...

HS2: Buckinghamshire (29 Apr 2019)

Martin Vickers: The Minister spoke in her opening remarks about the economic benefits to the midlands and the north, and it is because of those benefits that I have up until now supported HS2, but she will realise that benefits in 15-plus years’ time are a hard sell to passengers whose daily commute is being blighted. Would she consider rescheduling a project that is almost certainly going to overrun...

Martin Vickers: What assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of the UK’s continuing membership of the EU customs union.

International Trade: EU Customs Union (25 Apr 2019)

Martin Vickers: One of the principal benefits of Brexit is of course the ability to set our own trade policies, and many businesses in my constituency—it includes Immingham, the largest port in the country—want to take advantage of the freedoms that will be forthcoming. What additional support will the Secretary of State’s Department offer those businesses?

Waste Water Treatment Works: Odour Nuisance (23 Apr 2019)

Martin Vickers: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate. Depending on the wind direction, the issue could also affect my constituency. She referred to West Marsh ward but, as she will acknowledge, if the wind is blowing in the right direction, Freshney ward or—over the border in my constituency—Wolds ward could equally be affected. This has been a very long-running issue. In the years I...

Waste Water Treatment Works: Odour Nuisance (23 Apr 2019)

Martin Vickers: Even more than that!

European Council (11 Apr 2019)

Martin Vickers: In her statement, my right hon. Friend spoke of the British people being frustrated with the present situation. I can certainly confirm that that applies to my constituents, but they are also angry and feel that our country has been humiliated. Can the Prime Minister give them at least a crumb of comfort by absolutely assuring them that there will most certainly never ever be another...

Petition - TV Licences for over 75S: Lowestoft High Street: Revitalisation (10 Apr 2019)

Martin Vickers: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. His description of the challenges facing Lowestoft mirrors the situation facing my constituency, because fishing, tourism and renewables are also relevant to Cleethorpes. I am sure that the Minister will mention the Greater Grimsby town deal, a private-sector-led initiative that will support Government initiatives such as the coastal...
