Cliff Erosion: Isle of Sheppey (13 Dec 2017)

Gordon Henderson: I beg to move, That this House has considered cliff erosion on the north coastline of the Isle of Sheppey. I am raising this issue because I am concerned about the impact that cliff erosion is having on the lives of some of my constituents living at the east end of the Isle of Sheppey, particularly people living in the Eastchurch and Warden cliffs area. I declare an interest, because I live...

Gordon Henderson: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, with reference to his Department's call for evidence on protecting consumers in the letting and managing agent market, published in October 2017, for what reasons extending rights to freeholders was not included in that publication.

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Gordon Henderson: I accept everything that the Minister has said, but does he recognise that a £300 penalty is not as much of a deterrent as the £26,000 penalty in France? That leaves British hauliers who have to operate overseas at a disadvantage.

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Gordon Henderson: While I welcome the trial, the Minister will recognise that clamping down on lorries on the A20 will just move them to the A2 and A249, which will probably exacerbate the problem in our area.

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Gordon Henderson: I beg to move, That this House has considered regulation of HGV drivers sleeping in their vehicles. I am grateful for the opportunity to raise this issue, which is of great concern to hauliers and residents in my constituency. I will touch on three important and closely related aspects of this growing problem: first, how the regulations are enforced; secondly, the effect on my constituents of...

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Gordon Henderson: I am more than happy to agree with my hon. Friend. It is a national issue, but she is right that we have a particular problem down in Kent, because we are the gateway to the country, so suffer far worse than anyone else. With regard to the facilities, I will come on to that, so I hope she will bear with me. As I was saying, there are no washing facilities for drivers to use, and sites are...

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Gordon Henderson: I agree wholeheartedly with the hon. Gentleman. Part of what I am saying is for the benefit not only of hauliers but of drivers, who deserve and should be given decent working conditions, including decent accommodation when they have their 45-hour rest. On off-street parking, in November 2015, the then Chancellor announced a £250 million fund to provide a large lorry park alongside the...

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Gordon Henderson: I fully agree. My hon. Friend mentioned enforcement; there should be an increase in fines for those who break the law and the police should be given more resources to assist the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency in issuing those fines. We should move quickly to provide the lorry parks needed in Kent and look seriously at local solutions, similar to the one on the A249 to which I referred....

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Gordon Henderson: Existing lorry parks are chargeable, and I think that any future lorry parks will be chargeable. However, there is no point having a charge for a lorry park if there is no lorry park in the first instance. We are saying in Kent that we need more lorry parks, and I am sure that it is the same in Aberdeenshire. The measures that I have outlined would have a number of long-term benefits,...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Individual Savings Accounts (24 Apr 2017)

Gordon Henderson: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether the Government plans to encourage high street banks to offer the Lifetime ISA.

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

Gordon Henderson: Some local authorities have tendering processes so complex that they appear to have been designed to deter small companies from bidding. For instance, I know of local authorities in Kent that require bidders to complete a wide-ranging pre-qualification form not just once but before every tender is submitted. That is okay for large companies that have dedicated contracts departments, but it is...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Royal Brompton Hospital: Heart Diseases (1 Feb 2017)

Gordon Henderson: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what estimate he has made of the cost of the proposed closure of congenital heart disease services at Royal Brompton Hospital; and what the cost would be of (a) expanding provision elsewhere and (b) transferring staff and services as a result of that proposed closure.
