Business of the House (9 Sep 2021)

Martin Vickers: May I add my own tribute to Austin Mitchell? I agree with what the Leader of the House said earlier. Austin was my MP for 38 years. It was always a pleasure to work with him, both as a councillor and, subsequently, here in Westminster, although I have to say that I never voted for him. My hon. Friend the Member for Great Grimsby (Lia Nici) and I visited Franklin College in Grimsby last week....

Transport: High-speed Rail: Hull to Liverpool (9 Sep 2021)

Martin Vickers: If Hull, Immingham and the Humber ports are to benefit from their freeport status, it is vital that we have a rail freight corridor between the Humber ports and the west coast. What progress is being made in that respect?

Treasury: Topical Questions (7 Sep 2021)

Martin Vickers: The Chancellor referred earlier to the record amounts being invested in the rail network. May I urge him to ensure that one of the projects that he supports is an east-west freight corridor linking the Humber ports to the west coast? That would greatly maximise the benefits of freeport status; it would also aid the levelling-up agenda.

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: I shall not pretend to emulate the Member for the city of Southend, my hon. Friend the Member for Southend West (Sir David Amess), but I will do a quick scoot around a number of issues. Talking of scooting, constituents are raising issues about e-scooters, and I hope that when Transport Ministers review the regulations on the use of that mode of transport, they will consider vulnerable...

Covid-19 Update (22 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: In north-east Lincolnshire, the infection rates has been hovering at around 1,000 per 100,000 for the last couple of weeks, which is of obvious concern to my constituents. I am in regular touch with the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, which is doing an excellent job, but could the Minister reassure my constituents that if additional resources are required by the trust,...

Do Not Attempt Resuscitation Orders: Guidelines (21 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: I beg to move, That this House has considered guidelines for Do Not Attempt Resuscitation orders. It is a pleasure to take part in this debate under your chairmanship, Ms Bardell. I will be fairly brief. I welcome the fact that hon. Friends have come along, and I am very happy to take interventions from them. I requested this debate to raise the important matter of the use of do not attempt...

Do Not Attempt Resuscitation Orders: Guidelines (21 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: The hon. Gentleman makes some powerful points, particularly, as I just mentioned, about the involvement if not of the patient themselves, certainly of the next of kin. There have been examples of elderly people who reported that they felt pressured into signing these orders against their will. On 16 June, the Daily Mail reported that research carried out by the University of Sheffield found...

Do Not Attempt Resuscitation Orders: Guidelines (21 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: My hon. Friend makes some important points. I was unaware of the particular case that he mentions, but it is yet another example of what is happening without the approval of the patient or their family. As I say, Ministers from the Department of Health and Social Care have quite rightly offered reassurance, but clearly some clinicians appear—I say “appear”—to be treating the guidance...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Question (19 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: What plans he has to ensure that local communities are fully consulted on planning matters.

Backbench Business: Planning — [Judith Cummins in the Chair] (15 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair, Mrs Cummins. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Isle of Wight (Bob Seely) on securing this important debate. Before I consider the future planning system, perhaps hon. Members will allow me a minute or two of nostalgia. When I was first elected as a councillor to Great Grimsby Borough Council in 1980, just about every planning application...

Business of the House (15 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: Since taking control of North East Lincolnshire Council two years ago, the Conservative administration had made great strides in delivering what was the first town deal and attracting new investments, particularly in the renewable energy sector. A vital part of the area’s levelling up agenda is to improve the education and training of our young people in practical skills and academic...

International Trade: Negotiations to Join the CPTPP (15 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: What recent progress she has made on negotiations to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.

International Trade: Negotiations to Join the CPTPP (15 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: I very much support the Government’s efforts to become a member of CPTPP, which, as the Minister mentioned, offers great prospects. Indeed, my constituency is a major centre for renewable energy and has links with, for example, Taiwan. Does he anticipate that the renewable energy sector will gain great advantage from CPTPP membership and boost those industries in my constituency?

Transport Decarbonisation (14 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. Decarbonising our roads will be greatly assisted if we transfer more freight to rail. What progress is being made on delivering an east-west rail freight corridor from the Humber ports across to Liverpool and the west coast ports? As well as being a boost to the economy of my constituency, that would result in a massive reduction in HGV movements...
