Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: The full roll-out of universal credit in Lowestoft that started in May 2016 has not been straightforward. Almost from the outset, my office received a very large number of complaints, some of which have been addressed through working with the DWP, the council and Citizens Advice. However, it is clear that many people, often the most vulnerable in society, have been put under enormous pressure...

Asylum Accommodation Contracts: Economic Growth: East of England (10 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: We have had a wide-ranging debate, and I do not have time to highlight colleagues’ excellent contributions. Someone who looks at the east of England might say, “Everything looks reasonably okay there. It’s perfectly satisfactory. Let’s rumble on.” But do we want to be just rumbling on, second best? No, we do not. To use another football analogy, we want to be in...

Asylum Accommodation Contracts: Economic Growth: East of England (10 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: I beg to move, That this House has considered promoting economic growth in the East of England. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. The purpose of this debate is to highlight the enormous economic potential of the east of England and to put forward proposals for promoting growth, which can benefit people right across the region. In the past, East Anglians have...

Asylum Accommodation Contracts: Economic Growth: East of England (10 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: My hon. Friend is spot on: infrastructure and communications, whether road, railway or digital, are hugely important to the region’s future. I shall briefly touch on that, and I am quite sure my colleagues will do likewise. The east of England APPG held its inaugural meeting on 13 December 2017, when we were addressed by Lord Heseltine, who emphasised the need to think strategically...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: Last week, Access Community Trust, working in conjunction with other Lowestoft voluntary groups and Waveney District Council, launched the thin ice project, which will provide emergency accommodation for the homeless not just during the period of below zero night-time temperatures but for the whole winter period from 1 November to 28 February. On World Homeless Day, will the Prime Minister...

Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (9 Oct 2018)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I congratulate the hon. Member for Falkirk (John Mc Nally) on securing the debate, and he has done so at an opportune time, just under three weeks before the Chancellor delivers his Budget. He has also provided us with the opportunity to highlight the vital importance of the industry to the UK: it is essential for the...

Backbench Business: Deaf Children’s Services — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (13 Sep 2018)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. I congratulate the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) on securing the debate and on the unstinting work he does on behalf of the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. I also welcome the Minister to his place. I start by raising some of the challenges faced by deaf children in Suffolk, where there is...

Backbench Business: Deaf Children’s Services — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (13 Sep 2018)

Peter Aldous: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. The resource bases in Suffolk, both in primary and secondary schools, are very popular and go down very well—the feedback from pupils who are not deaf is that they welcome the provision. They are incredibly proud of the young people in those units. The problem in Suffolk is that there are three resource bases at primary level—in...

Backbench Business: Deaf Children’s Services — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (13 Sep 2018)

Peter Aldous: Thank you for guiding me, Mr Stringer. I will cut to the chase and conclude with what I said at the end of the debate on deafness and hearing loss in this Chamber last November. Many barriers have been placed in Ann Jillings’s way in her pursuit of better education for Daniel. It is our duty and the duty of Government and local authorities to remove those barriers as soon as possible....

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Sep 2018)

Peter Aldous: Last week, the East of England all-party parliamentary group launched its Budget submission, prepared in conjunction with business and local government. Does my right hon. Friend recognise the region’s enormous economic potential, and will she work with us to unlock it?

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation (23 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: I rise to present a petition from constituents from the neighbouring constituency of Great Yarmouth. They are concerned that the “Home Education—Call for Evidence and revised DfE guidance” has been written following significant consultation with local authorities but with no consultation with the home education community; that the revised guidance encourages local...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Funding Allocation (23 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: What steps his Department is taking to ensure fairness in the allocation of funding to local government.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government Funding Allocation (23 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Minister for those replies, but recent work by the County Councils Network has found that, despite additional funding provided to the last funding settlement at the beginning of the year, county areas including Suffolk will face £3.2 billion-worth of funding pressures by 2020. What can the Government do, in advance of the fair funding and comprehensive spending...

Exiting the European Union: Fishing Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on negotiations with the EU on fishing policy for when the UK leaves the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Fishing Policy (19 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Minister for that answer. Can she confirm that her Department shares the commitment of the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to the UK having full control of our territorial waters when we leave the EU, with trade in fish and fish products being a completely separate matter, and that there will be no trade deals linked to access to our fisheries?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Offshore Wind Sector (17 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: I am grateful to the Secretary of State for that answer and I will be at the opening of the East Anglia One operations and maintenance base on Friday in Lowestoft. Offshore wind, as he said, is bringing significant benefits to coastal communities, though to realise its full potential there is the need to ensure that local people and businesses have every opportunity to take part in the...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2018)

Peter Aldous: With the construction sector deal setting out several options to tackle poor payment practices, can the Secretary of State assure me that retention deposit schemes, as proposed in my private Member’s Bill, which has significant industry and cross-party support, will be given full consideration and, hopefully, Government backing?
