Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: The hon. Gentleman is being very generous in giving way. As he is reflecting on NICE and its process, does he agree that there should be a change in the way it measures or calculates quality of life when it comes to rare rather than ultra-rare diseases? If the condition was classed as ultra-rare, we may well have got the go-ahead.

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: Prime Minister, I have listened very carefully to everything you have said today, and I have read very carefully everything you have circulated. I even went to one of the briefings you organised today, and I was struck by the reply from your presenter every time there was a question about why we could not have something better than what was on the piece of paper presented: we were told that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Special Educational Needs: Support Services (25 Jun 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: What steps he is taking to ensure that children with special educational needs are able to access support services that are close to home.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Special Educational Needs: Support Services (25 Jun 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: Yet 41% of pupils attending special schools in Devon have to travel more than 10 miles to reach their school. How will the Minister support those children in Devon, to ensure that SEN provision is locally available and of a high quality?

Health and Social Care: Rural and Urban Communities: Health and Care Needs (8 May 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: Whether he has made a comparative assessment of the health and social care needs of rural and urban communities.

Health and Social Care: Rural and Urban Communities: Health and Care Needs (8 May 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: Would the Minister find it helpful to ask the national centre for rural health and care, shortly to be launched, to identify the specific challenges facing the providers of health and care in rural areas?

Fly-tipping — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: This is a very interesting topic, and one that I raised with the Minister in my own debate not so long ago. It will come as no surprise to her that we will be covering many of the same points again. For me, there is a clear difference between fly-tipping, litter louts and waste disposal sites. At one end of the scale we have the litter louts—those who drop litter out of car doors or who...

Fly-tipping — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: That is a very interesting point. That goes into the litter category, which the Minister has already begun to legislate on, and I would expand the category to cover that. In a sense, it is largely about intent. I think that littering is generally about being careless, which such a van owner would be, whereas fly-tipping is driven by economic gain. The formal sites are in a different category...

Fly-tipping — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: It is a very expensive solution. If we could do what the hon. Gentleman describes at a reasonable cost, that would be wonderful. He makes a good point, but in the countryside the cost of putting CCTV cameras around every single location would be extremely high, and making them impossible to dismantle would be a real challenge. It is a great idea for cities, where they can be put in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Modern Slavery (16 Apr 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: What steps has the Minister taken to report on slaves being retraded in the UK and recorded in the national referral mechanism more than once?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Mar 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: First, may I congratulate the Prime Minister on her pioneering work in fighting modern-day slavery? However, has she been advised that a central plank of her law enforcement policy is not working, with 65 prosecutions of traffickers abandoned last year because victims feared for their safety and no reparations orders made against convicted traffickers to compensate victims for their ordeals?

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: May I congratulate the Chancellor on his progress to date, but ask him to consider investing in a long-term innovative strategy for transport infrastructure—road, rail, air and sea—in the south-west so as to drive productivity north and south of the peninsula, and to include a commitment to such a strategy in the Budget so that we build a great south-west to rival the northern...

Homelessness: Department for Transport (27 Feb 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: I guess that there is at least one thing on which the hon. Member for Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport (Luke Pollard) and I would agree: the need for more investment in the south-west. There is no question about that. However, unlike him, I am absolutely convinced that we will get exactly what the Secretary of State promised. He promised—he put it in writing—that he would give us...

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

Anne Marie Morris: Does my hon. Friend agree that the London agreement provisions must be included as well, and they must not hang over?

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: What we get in our local government grant is key to delivering the standard of living that all our constituents want. I thank the Minister, because we have been fortunate in Devon, where core spending has gone up 3.3% to £537.8 million. We have an additional social care grant of £2.2 million and a rural services delivery grant of £7.5 million, although the business rates pilot...

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: I, too, would certainly like to pay tribute to my local force, Devon and Cornwall, which does a fantastic job in very difficult circumstances. Rural constituencies have the extra challenges of distance and a lack of good infrastructure, particularly broadband. If hon. Members looked at the roads there, they would understand why there is a real challenge. I have talked to my PCC, Alison...

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: Absolutely, and I shall tell the hon. Gentleman why—although I am not going to put it in a leaflet. The point is that people on the streets are saying that they are prepared to pay for health and social care, education and policing. What they do not like is non-specific tax rises that they think will be spent on things that they do not really value.

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: No; I have taken one intervention and, given the time and how many Members wish to speak, I will carry on. My PCC was also pleased that, this time, the final settlement took account of the increase in housing numbers. In the past, that has not been done and that has meant a lower settlement. However, it is clear that many challenges are ongoing because, as the Minister rightly said, the...

Trade Bill (9 Jan 2018)

Anne Marie Morris: I will be brief. First, Brexit has already been a great success. We have seen great improvements in our economy and great opportunities for many businesses. Despite her wonderful ditty, I take issue with the sentiments of the hon. Member for Livingston (Hannah Bardell). I am pleased that today we are talking trade because, when we talk about Brexit, trade is the key win as far as I am...
