Written Answers — Department for Transport: Hydrogen: Charging Stations (24 Nov 2021)

Mike Kane: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment his Department has made of the adequacy of the (a) coverage and (b) accessibility of hydrogen filling stations in the UK.

Transport: Glasgow Airport: Airspace Modernisation (4 Nov 2021)

Mike Kane: We have an analogue airspace system in the digital age; the Minister is right in what he says. With the better ascents and descents of planes and the elimination of holding patterns, we will not only improve noise abatement but cut carbon emissions by up to 26%, as he rightly said. This is the lowest of the low-hanging fruit when it comes to the climate crisis, so can the Minister tell us...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2021)

Mike Kane: The one thing that delighted me about the Secretary of State’s speech is learning that he has been a secret Manchester City fan all these years. I look forward to him joining the all-party group on football, ably chaired by the right hon. Member for Staffordshire Moorlands (Karen Bradley) in the weeks and years to come. However, little else impressed me. Aviation communities have been...

Tributes to Sir David Amess (18 Oct 2021)

Mike Kane: As has been alluded to, Sir David was a man of deep Catholic faith. The Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 10, reminds us that the Lord came not just to give life but to give it in abundance, and David lived his life in abundance—a joyous service both to his constituents and here in this House. We would see him late at night, often in a tuxedo, going from charitable concern to charitable...

Cruise Industry — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (22 Sep 2021)

Mike Kane: What an astonishing debate we have had today—I thought that we were all going to burst into song at one point. Far from “Under the Sea” from “The Little Mermaid”, from the speeches that we have heard today I was going to suggest that “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding might be appropriate. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Efford. As a...

Cruise Industry — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (22 Sep 2021)

Mike Kane: As TS Eliot stated—the Minister likes a good quote— “The journey, Not the destination matters”. That is a saying that rings true to those in the cruise industry more than most. The past 18 months have been an ordeal for the industry to say the least, starting with a scramble to get passengers and crew members home, ports closing to our ships and some crew members remaining stuck at...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (21 Sep 2021)

Mike Kane: What recent discussions he has had with representatives of (a) businesses and (b) trade unions on supply chain matters.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Supply Chains (21 Sep 2021)

Mike Kane: Will the Minister join me in congratulating companies such as Cardon Energy and Maritime Transport in my constituency on keeping the country fed, fuelled and supplied? However, they tell me that there is a tsunami of HGV drivers reaching retirement. Unite the Union says that terms and conditions are not good enough and lengthening the working day will not improve that. NG Transport has...

Backbench Business: UK Maritime Sector — [Sir George Howarth in the Chair] (16 Sep 2021)

Mike Kane: It is terrific to see you in the Chair, Sir George. I am sure all hon. Members echo that. My right hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr Jones) is one of the most effective operators in this Parliament at holding the Government to account, but he also always keeps his eyes on the horizon and has vision in what he talks about. The maritime industry does indeed have a very bright future...

Transport: Maritime Industry: Decarbonisation (9 Sep 2021)

Mike Kane: I agree with the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Cherilyn Mackrory) that fantastic projects are under way across the UK, including in her constituency, to get the maritime sector down to net zero. There is, however, a significant funding gap when it comes to making these developments a reality, and the Government, despite their record, have not done anywhere near enough to address the...

Transport: Travel Companies: International Restrictions (9 Sep 2021)

Mike Kane: Eighty-one thousand people working in air transport are currently on furlough, including approximately 2,200 in my constituency, which covers Manchester airport. Even in non-airport seats such as that of the Secretary of State, just short of 300 souls face the axe in less than a month’s time. Furlough is due to end three weeks today, and if the Government continue to restrict the market in...

Cervical Screening — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (19 Jul 2021)

Mike Kane: Thank you, Mr Pritchard. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I add my congratulations to the petitioners on securing a debate in Parliament on such an important topic. In January 2021, the Minister stated: “While we do not hold waiting lists for National Health Service screening programmes, NHS England…are confident that no one eligible for cervical screening has missed an...

Regional Airports — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (7 Jul 2021)

Mike Kane: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McVey, as you are my constituency neighbour. I congratulate the hon. Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double) on securing this timely debate and on his superb chairmanship of the APPG on general aviation. He was followed by the hon. Members for Truro and Falmouth (Cherilyn Mackrory) and for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Shipping: Coronavirus (28 Jun 2021)

Mike Kane: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to Table SFR0303 of the Seafarers in the UK Shipping Industry statistics, published on 24 February 2021, what proportion of (a) UK, (b) EEA and (c) non-EEA seafarers in each seafarer type has received at least one shot of vaccine against covid-19; and if he will outline the procedures in place to monitor covid-19 vaccination rates in...

Education Committee: Covid-19: Support for Aviation, Tourism and Travel Industries — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (24 Jun 2021)

Mike Kane: My right hon. Friend the Member for Exeter (Mr Bradshaw) is a Back Bencher; I am the Front Bencher.

Education Committee: Covid-19: Support for Aviation, Tourism and Travel Industries — [Dr Rupa Huq in the Chair] (24 Jun 2021)

Mike Kane: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dr Huq. To the hon. Member for Crawley (Henry Smith), with whom I have been a fellow traveller for a number of years on the matters of aviation and the Chagos islanders, I say well done for securing the debate. The hon. Member for Paisley and Renfrewshire North (Gavin Newlands) and I have just had a private discussion about the people of...

Transport: Cross-UK Transport Links (24 Jun 2021)

Mike Kane: To follow on from the question asked by the hon. Member for East Devon (Simon Jupp), regional airports play a critical role in connecting our regions and our Union. This month, Stobart Air collapsed, and easyJet is to close its bases at Newcastle International, London Stansted and London Southend airports; Teesside and Newquay have previously shut their doors. Without a sector-specific deal,...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Shipping: Exhaust Emissions (27 May 2021)
