Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: Fisheries (2 Mar 2017)

Martin Vickers: Last Friday, I spoke at a seafood processing and fishing industry seminar in the Grimsby-Cleethorpes area. The industry recognises the opportunities of Brexit, but understandably it has some concerns. I welcome the Secretary of State’s reassurances to date, but can she give an absolute reassurance to the seafood processing sector that it will form a key part of the negotiations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Official Development Assistance (2 Mar 2017)

Martin Vickers: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. He will be aware that our constituents in Lincolnshire have growing concerns about the aid budget. They will be reassured that the NAO is looking closely at it. Can he commit to the NAO to looking much more robustly at many of the aid projects, which are of growing concern to our constituents?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (27 Feb 2017)

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (21 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: Last week I led a delegation to Kosovo, and I can tell my right hon. Friend that the President, the Prime Minister and others that we met there greatly appreciated his visit.

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: This issue has resulted in some extremely passionate speeches on both sides of the argument. Many of my constituents will have signed the petition against the visit, and some will have signed the petition in favour of Mr Trump coming here. I have to say that only about 30 have taken the trouble to email me with their views. It is perfectly legitimate for individuals to sign a petition...

President Trump: State Visit — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (20 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: I think that we should roll out the red carpet if it is in our national interest to do so. I do not think there is any doubt about that, as I have said. My hon. Friend the Member for Ribble Valley (Mr Evans), who is not now in his place, rightly raised comparisons with the Brexit vote. Other candidates in the USA can be compared with those who campaigned for a remain vote in the UK, who did...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Business of the House (9 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: The Leader of the House will recall that last week I spoke about the mounting excitement in Cleethorpes in anticipation of a visit from the northern powerhouse Minister.

Friend the Member...

Housing White Paper (7 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: I welcome the Secretary of State’s determination to tackle the housing shortage, but he will be aware that housing need varies dramatically between provincial towns and rural areas, and London and the south-east. Can he assure my constituents that the policies and planning guidance will not be focused entirely on London and that there will be some allowance for local authorities to...

Exiting the Eu: New Partnership (2 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: My right hon. Friend will recall that at last week’s Brexit questions I asked about the seafood sector, and I can tell him that it will be particularly pleased with the comment in paragraph 8.16 giving it full support. However, he will also be aware of the long-standing grievance of the fishing communities up and down the country following their being sold out in the original...

Airport Capacity and Airspace Policy: Business of the House (2 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: Excitement is mounting in Cleethorpes following the announcement yesterday of a visit next week from the northern powerhouse Minister.

Maintained Nursery Schools Funding — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (1 Feb 2017)

Martin Vickers: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. I congratulate the hon. Member for Warrington North (Helen Jones) on securing this important debate.

Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Sir Simon Burns), who summed up very well the value of...

Will he or one of his colleagues find time to visit the event this afternoon?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding (23 Jan 2017)

Martin Vickers: The resort area of Cleethorpes has suffered from a spate of vandalism and antisocial behaviour in recent weeks. Will the Minister assure me that adequate resources will be provided to Humberside police and other forces to deal with that sort of antisocial behaviour?

Business of the House (19 Jan 2017)

Martin Vickers: For disabled people, achieving a job can be a life-changing experience. Last Friday, I was privileged to promote a This-Ability event in Cleethorpes to encourage local employers to take on more disabled people. Will the Leader of the House join me in congratulating Lorraine Alexander and her team from Grimsby jobcentre, who did a great deal of work to stage the event, as well as all the...
