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...

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...

Health and Social Care: Social Care Reform (13 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: What progress he is making on bringing forward plans to reform adult social care.

Health and Social Care: Social Care Reform (13 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: I welcome what my right hon. Friend has said so far and the moves he is making to deal with the social care issue. One thing that elderly people particularly are worried about when they are in care or in hospital are the recent reports of “Do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation” orders. Will my right hon. Friend give an assurance that they will only be put in place with the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Screening (12 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when the Government plans announce its choice of British lateral flow test after the signing of contracts in March 2021 with Omega Diagnostics and Global Access Diagnostics in order to meet the target of having the majority of UK lateral flow tests produced in the UK.

Covid-19 Update (5 Jul 2021)

Martin Vickers: The majority of my constituents will welcome the Secretary of State’s statement, but NHS Digital data shows that the case rate in the council area is 591 per 100,000. That is considerably ahead of the national average and is causing inevitable concern, particularly among elderly and vulnerable groups. I have full confidence in the local NHS, the council and other officials dealing with the...

Business of the House (24 Jun 2021)

Martin Vickers: Last Saturday morning, along with my hon. Friend the Member for Great Grimsby (Lia Nici), I attended an event organised by the Grimsby and Cleethorpes Water Rats, who, along with other things, run a junior relay team who at this very moment—if all has gone to plan—are involved in a cross-channel swim. We were joined by Brenda Fisher BEM, one of Grimsby’s famous daughters, who swam the...

Social Care Reform (23 Jun 2021)

Martin Vickers: I appreciate this is very difficult for the Minister, because until we actually know what the Government’s proposals are, she is answering questions based on assumptions and guesswork, but she will know that the main concerns of families are twofold: that they get adequate care; and that they will not have to sell their family home to provide that care. What assurance can she give that the...

Business of the House (17 Jun 2021)

Martin Vickers: I refer to the case of a brutal attack on my constituent Gwen Kaplan. Three years ago, her neighbour was attacked by her boyfriend outside their house. Mrs Kaplan opened her door and tried to help. The attacker then smashed her window, got into the house, smashed a hole in the bathroom door and proceeded to stab Mrs Kaplan on the scalp, face, neck, shoulder and hand. He was charged with...

Church Commissioners: Online and In-person Communal Worship: Covid-19 Restrictions (17 Jun 2021)

Martin Vickers: Whether the Church of England plans to support online and in-person communal worship as covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

Church Commissioners: Online and In-person Communal Worship: Covid-19 Restrictions (17 Jun 2021)

Martin Vickers: I thank my hon. Friend for his reply. It is welcome that the Church is encouraging this both online and in-person. For those housebound, who perhaps in the past have only received home communion, to be able to participate more is very welcome, but nothing can actually replace the fellowship of being a part of a real-life congregation. Can he give an absolute assurance that no barriers will be...

Levelling-up Agenda — [Mrs Maria Miller in the Chair] (15 Jun 2021)

Martin Vickers: It is a pleasure, as always, to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Edward. I join others in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Isle of Wight (Bob Seely) on securing this important debate. The Government have shown clear signs in recent months with the levelling-up fund and the towns fund that they intend to make sure that the future is, indeed, better than the past, to quote the...

Learned Societies at Burlington House (8 Jun 2021)

Martin Vickers: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Rees, and I join others in congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton), who obtained the debate. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Stroud (Siobhan Baillie) I, like others, am not eminent enough to be a fellow of one of the societies, nor am I even a candidate, it has to be said, but in...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Shipbuilding: Loan Guarantee Scheme (24 May 2021)

Martin Vickers: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions his Department has had with relevant stakeholders on the establishment of a home shipbuilding loan guarantee scheme.

Britain’s Railways (20 May 2021)

Martin Vickers: Unlike Labour Members, I welcome the Secretary of State’s focus on what works rather than just on ownership, but we should not lose sight of the fact that competition is a spur to improved services. Open access operators have provided services to towns that were not included in franchises. Can my right hon. Friend assure me that these services will continue? Paragraph 25 of the White Paper...
