Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [Lords] (14 May 2018)

Peter Aldous: I will not detain the House for long this evening. I welcome the precautionary measures and the purpose behind this Bill. The logistics, storage and distribution industry is a very important component part of the East Anglian economy, with the container business going through Felixstowe and agricultural foodstuffs going through smaller ports such as Lowestoft in my constituency. I just wish...

Community Transport — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate the hon. Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood) on securing this debate and on her Select Committee’s work in scrutinising the impact of the changes. It is right that this debate is taking place now, just after the Government have closed their consultation on the use of section 19 and section 22...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (3 May 2018)

Petition - Proposed Closure of Accrington Victoria NHS Walk-in Centre: Mental Health Services (Norfolk and Suffolk) (2 May 2018)

Peter Aldous: I congratulate my hon. Friend and constituency neighbour on securing the debate. Before he goes on to talk about the money, which is very important, does he agree that it is very important that the trust promotes and endorses local, tailor-made initiatives such as the trauma-informed approach currently being promoted in Lowestoft by mental health champions Tod Sullivan and Paul Hammond?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Aldous: The all-party group on housing and care for older people, which I co-chair with the noble Lord Best, is launching later this afternoon its report on the housing needs of older people in rural areas, and it concludes that more work is required.

Friend the Member for Gordon (Colin Clark) on securing the debate, and it is an honour and a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman). In the last four years, the oil and gas industry in the North sea has come under considerable pressure, and tens of thousands of jobs have...

Backbench Business: UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (19 Apr 2018)

Peter Aldous: I thank the hon. Lady for reinforcing that point. It is difficult to attract investment, and the Government have worked very hard to make this basin one of the most attractive in the world to invest in, but these sort of noises coming out of HMRC reverberate around the world. A solution needs to be found very quickly. While much of the industry’s focus in recent decades has been on...

Fishing: East Anglia (18 Apr 2018)

Peter Aldous: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Renaissance of East Anglian Fishing campaign. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley.

Fishing: East Anglia (18 Apr 2018)

Peter Aldous: The hon. Gentleman’s point is well made. It is important that our region derives the maximum possible economic benefit from Brexit. REAF is seeking to achieve that goal, with the local industry taking the lead in planning the future of East Anglian fishing. The intention is to set out our stall, and to work with Government, to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. That...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (27 Mar 2018)

Peter Aldous: As fishing licences in the UK overseas territories come up for bidding, will my right hon. Friend make a presumption in favour of local and UK businesses, which is so important both for sustainable fishing and for maximising the economic benefits to such communities?

European Council (26 Mar 2018)

Peter Aldous: Brexit provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a renaissance of East Anglian fishing, although the provisions of the implementation agreement have created anger and some doubt about whether the Government share the ambition of the industry locally. Will my right hon. Friend confirm that her Government will work with and support East Anglian fishing communities, such as that in...

Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill (6 Mar 2018)

Peter Aldous: Going through the briefings that I have received from various organisations representing both consumers and suppliers, it is quite clear that there is universal recognition of the problem that the Bill seeks to address: market failure. There is almost universal support for the Bill on those grounds, and for that reason I am also extremely supportive of it. However, as we have heard, it is...

British Sign Language: National Curriculum — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (5 Mar 2018)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Austin. I congratulate the hon. Member for Blaydon (Liz Twist) on her work in facilitating this debate. It is either coincidental or a subliminal message from another place that this debate is taking place on the same day that “The Silent Child” won an Oscar. I have not seen the film, but I understand that sign language is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (1 Mar 2018)

Peter Aldous: BACT—Beccles and Bungay area community transport—plays a key strategic role in north Suffolk in serving remote rural areas and many vulnerable people.

UK Fisheries Policy — [Mr Ian Paisley in the Chair] (27 Feb 2018)

Peter Aldous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall (Scott Mann) on securing this debate. Lowestoft in my constituency was previously the fishing capital of the southern North sea; today it is a pale shadow of its former self. Brexit provides an opportunity to revitalise fishing off the East Anglian coast, and to maximise...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (26 Feb 2018)

Peter Aldous: I congratulate the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Ruth Smeeth) and my hon. Friend the Member for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) on securing the debate.

State Pension Age (8 Feb 2018)

Peter Aldous: I shall cut to the chase, Mr Speaker. What impact assessments have the Government carried out to assess the impact of their proposals on women born in the 1950s?

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Peter Aldous: I will not detain the House for long. The local government finance settlement is of particular interest to me due to the significant challenges that councils face in areas such as Suffolk in delivering services, particularly adult social care and children’s services.
