Housing, Communities and Local Government: Coastal Communities (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: Since 2012, we have invested £174 million in 295 coastal communities fund projects throughout the UK. Those projects are forecast to deliver 18,000 jobs, and we have announced that round 5 of the coastal community fund, worth £40 million, will open shortly.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Coastal Communities (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: My hon. Friend’s constituency has already received more than £1.5 million from the coastal communities fund, which shows how he is delivering for his constituents through his campaigning. I would be delighted to visit when I am in his area.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Coastal Communities (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: I had the pleasure and privilege of visiting my hon. Friend’s constituency last year, and I saw those world-class skills in action, particularly in the nuclear supply chain. I am delighted that, through our industrial strategy and the northern powerhouse, we are supporting people throughout the country, so that they can grow the economy, wherever they may reside.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Coastal Communities (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: Ultimately, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales and his Ministers are leading on the north Wales growth deal, but with them I have an absolute determination to ensure that the deal delivers for the people of north Wales. On Thursday this week, I shall visit local authorities in north Wales to ask them what progress they have made and to update me on the projects that they...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Coastal Communities (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: I do not agree with the statement that Brexit will have a disproportionate impact on the coastal regions, because taking back control of our fishing industry will pay a huge dividend for the people who live along our coast. It was hugely exciting for me to visit Dumfries and Galloway only last Thursday to talk about the borderlands deal, which is unique in that it goes from coast to coast,...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Coastal Communities (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: Of course I will be happy to discuss having a meeting with the people to whom the hon. Lady refers. However, I gently point out that this Government—the UK Government—have already invested £174 million in our coastal communities and are getting behind those communities. What have the Scottish Government done? I think nothing.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: Under Sir John Armitt’s leadership, the Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission is engaging all interested parties, including on last Friday’s visit to Southend airport, which I understand my hon. Friend attended. The commission is developing an ambitious vision for south Essex, north Kent and east London, and will publish its final report this spring.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: I, too, like to refer to it as London Southend airport, which I think is its correct name. It is a real success story and has great potential for growth—it has an ambitious 2 million passenger target this year. Stobart Group has already invested £162 million in a new terminal. That puts London Southend airport at the heart of the Thames estuary commission’s growth plans.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Carillion (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: We have been working in close partnership with the Local Government Association, which contacted affected local authorities before Christmas about the financial difficulties Carillion was facing to ensure that they have appropriate contingency plans in place. We will continue to work with the LGA to ensure that there is no, or minimal, disruption to public service.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Carillion (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: I am not aware of any meetings taking place or advice being given. However, I will check the records when I return to the Department and write to the hon. Gentleman if there have been such meetings.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: As the hon. Gentleman will be aware, these growth deals are extremely complicated. That is why I have agreed to meet the backers of the Ayrshire growth deal to talk about how, for our part, the UK Government can take an exciting deal forward.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (22 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: I met members of the board of the Grimsby town growth deal on a recent visit to Cleethorpes and the town of Grimsby. I am sure that my hon. Friend will be as pleased as I am that the growth deal was specifically referenced in the industrial strategy, and I encourage him to contact the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to talk about how it can be taken forward.

Warwick District Council: New Offices (10 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Howarth. I congratulate the hon. Member for Warwick and Leamington (Matt Western) on securing an important debate not just for his constituents but for various areas of the country—Members from across the House have made contributions, so he is obviously raising issues from their constituencies that they want to discuss. To...

Warwick District Council: New Offices (10 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: We are as one on that—“bong” is all I can say. We also heard from the hon. Member for Peterborough (Fiona Onasanya), who raised important issues in her constituency, and from my hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Robert Courts), who has great experience as a former deputy leader of West Oxfordshire District Council. In his time there he was always involved in saving the...

Warwick District Council: New Offices (10 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: The hon. Gentleman tempts me down a path. I am tempted, but I will not venture down it, because, as I am sure he is aware as a county councillor and as a Member of this House, that the Secretary of State in my Department has a judicial role in local plans, local planning policy, and all planning applications in England. Therefore, it would be inappropriate for me to comment in the way that he...

Welsh Grand Committee: Housing and Infrastructure: Chilterns (9 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: I start by congratulating my distinguished right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Dame Cheryl Gillan) on securing an important debate for her constituents and the area of Chesham and Amersham. I see that only last June she was channelling Queen Elizabeth I when she said: “HS2 will be written on my heart…when I leave this world.”—[Official Report, 22...

Welsh Grand Committee: Housing and Infrastructure: Chilterns (9 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: I think what I said was there is consensus around the fact that the status quo is not an option—

Welsh Grand Committee: Housing and Infrastructure: Chilterns (9 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: My right hon. Friend has shown that consensus does not necessarily exist. I will take her comments on board and pass them on to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and make sure he is aware of her views. I thank her for bringing all of the points in this very important debate to the attention of the House, and particularly to me and my Department, but I repeat that we will maintain...

Welsh Grand Committee: Housing and Infrastructure: Chilterns (9 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: My right hon. Friend correctly says that our hon. Friend the Member for Milton Keynes South is being put into that role as champion for the Ox-Cam corridor to co-ordinate Government action across Departments and, most specifically, to work with local authorities to ensure that they take a co-ordinated approach to the proposed long-term development plan. In a very astute way, she identifies...

Yorkshire Devolution (9 Jan 2018)

Jake Berry: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I congratulate the hon. Member for Barnsley Central (Dan Jarvis) on securing this important debate. He spoke passionately on behalf of his constituents and set out what he believes is a potential solution to the current impasse with the South Yorkshire devolution deal. In fact, an hour or so before this debate, I received a...
