International Investment (17 Oct 2017)

Amanda Milling: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the record levels of inward investment demonstrate a strong vote of confidence in Britain, showing that we are open for business and an outward-looking and world-leading nation?

Unauthorised Encampments — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Amanda Milling: I congratulate my hon. Friend and neighbour on securing the debate. She rightly talks about the issues facing Walsall; I read about them regularly in the Express and Star, because those issues affect a number of constituencies, including mine. I recognise that local communities are really affected, particularly when we see the Travellers coming on to local parks.

Clean Growth Strategy (12 Oct 2017)

Amanda Milling: Coal-fired power generation ceased in Rugeley last year. That commercial decision on the part of the owners represented the end of an era. The Government are committed to phasing out coal-fired generation by 2025. One of the frustrations for my constituents is when they go to other countries and see coal-fired power generation. Will the Minister outline what success we have had in encouraging...

Retail Energy (12 Oct 2017)

Amanda Milling: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement and the recognition that there are issues with the energy market, but consumer apathy is the real problem. Does he agree that more needs to be done to encourage people to switch, and to make switching easier?

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Amanda Milling: In January 2016, Cannock Chase High School was rated as requiring improvement, but following a recent visit, Ofsted recognised the positive impact that has resulted from the improvements that are being made. Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating all the staff and pupils at the school on that progress? May I use this as another request for either a statement or debate about...

HGV Driver Regulation (11 Oct 2017)

Amanda Milling: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. This issue does not only affect Kent. Travelling up to Staffordshire, HGVs can be found littering the roads, business parks and backstreets of towns, as he described. Does he agree that we need to look at the facilities provided for HGV drivers throughout the country? I appreciate the particular concerns in Kent, but they exist in other...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Lotteries: Regulation (19 Sep 2017)

Amanda Milling: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what plans her Department has to bring forward proposals for regulatory reform of the Society Lottery sector.

Amanda Milling: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, when she plans to publish the proposals from the Gambling Commission for the reform of the Society Lottery sector.

International Day of Democracy: HS2: Phase 2b Route (Manchester and Leeds) (6 Sep 2017)

Amanda Milling: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. She talks about the construction phase. It has come to light that the construction phase may slow the redevelopment of the Rugeley B power station site—a key development site for new homes and new businesses that will create new jobs in my constituency. Does she agree that we are looking at many different implications from the...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill: Relief from local non-domestic rates: occupied hereditaments (5 Sep 2017)

Amanda Milling: Since speaking on Second Reading about connectivity to new homes, another case arrived in my inbox last week. I cannot go through it in an intervention, but needless to say it involves BT Openreach and the developer, with lots of emails to and from the constituent. I am sure that I will be writing to my right hon. Friend the Minister for Digital about it over the next few weeks.

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (5 Sep 2017)

Amanda Milling: The horrific and tragic events of Grenfell Tower have brought the issue of faulty white goods into even sharper focus. A recent freedom of information request revealed that more than 600 house fires in the midlands had been started by tumble dryers in the last decade. What conversations are my right hon. Friend and his ministerial team having about that issue with their counterparts in the...

Northamptonshire: Combined Fire and Police Service (5 Sep 2017)

Amanda Milling: I am very pleased that the Northamptonshire police and crime commissioner has taken the opportunity to look at the governance model and to consider becoming a police, fire and crime commissioner. Will my hon. Friend join me in welcoming the news that that is happening in Staffordshire too? The consultation has recently been completed. The police and crime commissioner taking the fire...

Northamptonshire: Combined Fire and Police Service (5 Sep 2017)

Amanda Milling: I am grateful for the opportunity to intervene again. Does my hon. Friend agree that having a police, fire and crime commissioner would improve the democratic accountability of the fire service? Councillors are appointed to the fire authority, but they are not electorally accountable to the public.

Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: I welcome the report and my hon. Friend’s statement. Does she agree that not only is it absolutely right for us to ensure that workers are treated fairly, but it is good for businesses too, because they will have a more engaged and therefore more productive workforce?

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: Access to the internet is as important as electricity. If the lights go out and the power goes off, a manufacturing business will not be able to produce its goods. In the same way, if a business is reliant on the internet, it can grind to a halt without it.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: It is an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Boston and Skegness (Matt Warman), who is a real expert in this field, as he has demonstrated tonight. I have to admit that I am a technology dinosaur; when it comes to communications, if I have a choice between email, text or telephone, I will choose an actual conversation every single time. It takes an awful lot less time to pick up...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: My hon. Friend is right, and I will come on to some specific issues later in my speech. My office is on Market Street in the heart of Hednesford, yet when I am there, more often than not I cannot make telephone calls because I do not have any mobile phone reception. When I am travelling between my office and my home as well, invariably the mobile phone reception falls. Why is broadband and...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: My hon. Friend and I both have residents and businesses that face the plight of HGV fly-parking. I know that she, too, is very passionate about this. Does she agree that, as technology advances, we should look at different ways of doing business?

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill (10 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: My hon. Friend mentions banks on the high street. Several branches in my constituency have shut and one of the arguments I hear is that people can use online banking, which is the very reason we need to ensure that we have excellent broadband facilities.

Export Licensing: High Court Judgment (10 Jul 2017)

Amanda Milling: In the last Parliament, it took quite some time for the Committees on Arms Export Controls to be set up. Will my right hon. Friend speak to the Leader of the House to see whether that important Committee can be set up as quickly as possible?
