Eric Ollerenshaw: As a Member of Parliament for an area covered by the trust, I assure the Secretary of State that many thousands of workers in the NHS in my area do a really good job in very difficult geographical circumstances.

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Dairy Industry (4 Feb 2015)

Eric Ollerenshaw: It is great to serve under your chairmanship again, Sir Roger—I accept your strictures and will try to get in under four minutes. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ribble Valley (Mr Evans) on securing the debate; obviously, Lancashire leads the way, as per usual, on this issue. In Lancashire, according to figures from the National Farmers Union, we lost 28 dairy farmers last...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity (3 Feb 2015)

Eric Ollerenshaw: It is a great pleasure to follow yet another Yorkshire MP. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hereford and South Herefordshire (Jesse Norman) on instituting what I think has become an annual debate, with the annual roll-out of the Minister. I am sure the Minister has a good idea of some of the things I am going to say, but before I go into what are essentially concerns about rural...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity (3 Feb 2015)

Eric Ollerenshaw: I agree, but that is not happening. The market is not yet delivering. Where it is not delivering, the Government should be delivering, in terms of planning regulations at the very least. On the roll-out of broadband, to be fair, the Government took the decision in 2010, which we all welcomed, to do something for that section of the rural community that had been left out for so long, as my...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity (3 Feb 2015)

Eric Ollerenshaw: I am grateful for the Minister’s intervention. He is right, and I paid tribute to that. Back to the missing 5%—the group led by Barry Forde suggested that it would take up the 5% with a not-for-profit social enterprise and deliver hyperfast super-broadband—that is, 1 gigabit—to every property within a defined area. The group approached me as a constituency MP. The group eventually...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity (3 Feb 2015)

Eric Ollerenshaw: I stand corrected; it has all the features of a monopoly. Let me give an example. One of the villages supposedly in the BT area is Dolphinholme, which lies between two villages that B4RN was going to wire up, so its wiring went through the village. Villagers there had been waiting for BT, but it had not yet turned up, so they asked B4RN to connect them. B4RN then began connecting those people...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity (3 Feb 2015)

Eric Ollerenshaw: Absolutely. As we have heard hon. Members shout from across the Chamber, it is the behaviour of a monopoly. Another characteristic of a monopoly is a lack of transparency. Let me give another example. Two weeks ago a resident of the village of Scorton, which was to be wired up by BT, approached me to say that he was having problems getting in touch with BT to find out what was going on. He...

Living Wage (Reporting): Backbench Business — Rural Phone and Broadband Connectivity (3 Feb 2015)

Eric Ollerenshaw: I beg to differ. Perhaps the Select Committee that looked at it here could recall BT. I have made inquiries about how to get the competition authorities to look at the situation. This is the behaviour of a monopoly: there is no transparency, we are not being told what is going on, and indeed we are being given disinformation.
