Scott Mann: What steps she is taking to provide hurricane relief in the Caribbean.
Scott Mann: Will my right hon. Friend assure me that our friends in the Commonwealth who have been affected by these recent hurricanes are receiving support and aid as they recover?
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what steps his Department is taking to assist the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust since it has been placed into special measures.
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps his Department is taking to control deer and grey squirrel populations in Cornwall.
Scott Mann: My hon. Friend is making a powerful point. Is he aware of an organisation in my constituency called Casa Snaggers? It is an independent snagging company based in Launceston. Does he think that it might help to resolve issues of the sort faced by the couple in St Austell?
Scott Mann: What recent assessment he has made of the security situation in Northern Ireland.
Scott Mann: Will my hon. Friend join me in sending a message of support and thanks to the brave men and women of the Police Service of Northern Ireland who keep us safe in the light of the severe terrorist threat at present?
Scott Mann: As my right hon. Friend will be aware, EU legislation giving protections to food from particular geographical areas, such as the Cornish pasty, our clotted cream and the Cornish sardine, came into force in 1993. Has his Department had discussions with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs about similar arrangements carrying on after we leave the EU?
Scott Mann: Many of my constituents were delighted to see the Queen’s Speech and the announcement of trade, agriculture and fisheries Bills, as were many constituents across the west country. However, the Question Times for the Departments for Transport, for Exiting the European Union and for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have been some of the shortest in this Parliament. Given that she is...
Scott Mann: What assessment he has made of the adequacy of the current level of housebuilding.
Scott Mann: The Secretary of State will be aware that Cornwall recently received £5 million for community-led self-build housing. Does he support neighbourhood plans that look to provide that facility instead of registered social landlord properties, so that Government Members can give people not only the ladder, but the spade, the spirit level and the trowel, too?
Scott Mann: I thank the Prime Minister for introducing the trade, agriculture and fisheries Brexit Bills in the Queen’s Speech, which will be welcomed right across the west country. However, we are facing significant challenges with our rural post office network at the moment, with the transition from community branches to community village stores and community buildings. Some of those moves have...
Scott Mann: Thank you very much, Mr Speaker. The Secretary of State and other DEFRA Ministers will be well aware of the challenges facing Camelford, in my constituency, which was recently subjected to an air quality assessment, and which is in the very early stages of being granted a bypass. I hope that the Secretary of State will support me, and the local community, in our bid for a new bypass in Camelford.
Scott Mann: We have had an excellent discussion and this has been a very worthwhile debate. My right hon. Friend the Member for East Yorkshire (Sir Greg Knight) made some great interventions; my hon. Friend the Member for St Ives (Derek Thomas) made a very passionate case for his part of Cornwall; the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Drew Hendry) made some interesting and...
Scott Mann: I beg to move, That this House has considered the use of regional flags on driving licences and number plates. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Nuttall, and to have secured this debate. It is worth while bringing this debate before the House as we begin the process of withdrawing from the European Union. As Members will be aware, we see the EU flag on driving licences and...
Scott Mann: It is almost as if my right hon. Friend has read my mind. Later in my speech I will go on to talk a little about Yorkshire, and he has made a passionate case for his area. The Minister may have concerns about the financial and administrative burden for the DVLA from licences, but when it comes to number plates, many motorists will be willing to pay for new plates displaying the flag of their...
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps his Department is taking to invest in new road infrastructure in the South West; and if he will make a statement.
Scott Mann: In terms of Cornwall and what is being raised at the moment, I want to be clear. Do you have a devolution deal for your area?
Scott Mann: I just think it might be relevant to know whether you have one. Cornwall does already; that might be the reason for the position that we are in.
