South West Water: Brixham Contamination (20 May 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: This has been a devastating event. Although constituents in Newton Abbot were not directly affected, this is an issue of trust, as my hon. Friend the Member for North Devon (Selaine Saxby) said. It is about trust in South West Water as an organisation—there is a long way to go before that trust is restored—but also about trust in the quality of our water, and in our regulators to hold...

Furnished Holiday Lettings: Taxation ( 1 May 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: If the Minister is unwilling to undertake a consultation, is he willing to look at a carve-out—an exemption—for properties that cannot be used in the private rented sector because of covenants on them? That was discussed by the Office of Tax Simplification. Will he look at that seriously?

Furnished Holiday Lettings: Taxation ( 1 May 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Furnished Holiday Lettings: Taxation ( 1 May 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: On the basis of the contributions that have been made, does it not seem obvious that what we need is a proper impact assessment of the reform? We need to look at the impact on the economy, the impact on housing and the impact on the tourism sector. I am sure my hon. Friend will also come to the expected impacts on gross value added and on jobs.

Furnished Holiday Lettings: Taxation ( 1 May 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: Is it not also clear, following the Renters (Reform) Bill, that there has been a haemorrhaging of landlords who do not wish to be in the private rented sector? As a consequence, they used to go to holiday lets, so holiday let individuals are hardly going to be going back to the private rented sector, which they wanted to leave and are leaving in droves.

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Holiday Accommodation: Taxation (15 Apr 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, what assessment her Department has made of the potential impact of ending the furnished holiday let tax regime on the tourism industry.

Written Answers — Treasury: Holiday Accommodation: Taxation (25 Mar 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what data his Department used to estimate the number of short-term lets that would be suitable for primary residences when the furnished holiday let tax regime has ended.

South West Water ( 5 Mar 2024)

Anne Marie Morris: I will focus my remarks on water supply rather than pollution. To give some context, the Environment Agency predicts that England risks running short of water by 2045—not very far away—due to climate change and population growth. The Government are struggling to get our daily usage down to 122 litres per person by 2050—currently that figure is 145 litres. We have built no new...

Rural Councils: Funding — [Mrs Pauline Latham in the Chair] (29 Nov 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: Will the Minister give way?

Rural Councils: Funding — [Mrs Pauline Latham in the Chair] (29 Nov 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset (Chris Loder) for securing this very important debate. I could waste time setting out the problem that he has made very clear, but what we should be doing is focusing on the solutions. Some 21% of the population—12 million people—live in rural areas. Too often, they are ignored, forgotten and marginalised. What we really need is a proper...

Railway Ticket Offices — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (13 Sep 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: This is an excellent debate and I am delighted that it was raised. Supposedly, the driver for closing ticket offices is the reduction in sales to 12%. In coastal and rural areas, that is clearly not true. Certainly, in Newton Abbot 22% of sales are at the office, while at Teignmouth it is 26% and at Dawlish it is 34%. Therefore, why am I being told that ticket offices at two of my three...

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Jun 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: In December last year, LINK conducted research about the acceptance of cash. It found that nearly half—45%—of people have been somewhere where cash has not been accepted or has been discouraged, and 49% of people said being unable or being discouraged to pay in cash was inconvenient. Will the Prime Minister look again at the Financial Services and Markets Bill, when it comes back from the...

NHS Dentists: South-West England — [Julie Elliott in the Chair] (24 May 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: Healthy teeth are a critical part of a healthy body; we cannot really separate one from the other. It has always surprised me that when the NHS was established, the concept of free at the point of delivery excluded dentistry, for which there has always been a charge. There is something about dentistry, because it is either too complex or too expensive, that has led it to be somewhat second...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Voluntary Scheme for Branded Medicines Pricing and Access ( 4 May 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether medicines funded under the Innovative Medicines Fund will be included in the calculation of that company's rebate under the Voluntary Pricing Scheme for Branded Medicines (VPAS).

Branded Medicines Voluntary Scheme and the Life Sciences Vision ( 3 May 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: As has been rightly said, we are encroaching on recess time, so I am grateful to all contributors for still being here. This has been an important debate, and one thing is clear: there is more agreement than disagreement on what we want to achieve. We all want growth in the UK economy and to see medicine prices set in such a way that they are affordable; however, we also want to ensure that...

Branded Medicines Voluntary Scheme and the Life Sciences Vision ( 3 May 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: I apologise for interrupting the Minister’s flow. He is right that there was a forecast, but my understanding is that it was wrong and that there was an under-growth in all those years bar one. The consequence was that it was not possible for industry to have the predictability that he outlines. Forecasting will clearly always be a challenge, but, as I understand it, in this case it did not...

Branded Medicines Voluntary Scheme and the Life Sciences Vision ( 3 May 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: I beg to move, That this House has considered the voluntary scheme for branded medicines and the Life Sciences Vision. It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. The “Life Sciences Vision”, which was agreed and published in 2021, was a very ambitious document of which the Government should be rightly proud. It looks at further investment and development in...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Voluntary Scheme for Branded Medicines Pricing and Access ( 3 May 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether medicines funded through the cancer drugs fund are included in the calculation of the rebate due under the voluntary pricing scheme for branded medicines (VPAS).

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 3 May 2023)

Anne Marie Morris: Newton Abbot constituents face hosepipe bans after torrential spring storms, and they are asking me why water catchment plans have not prevented this. Reservoirs, desalination plants and other natural catchment structures require siting where geography and geology allow. Is there a national strategy and implementation plan to increase water catchment and enable cross-water company water...
