Business of the House (14 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: Oldham is a wonderful place but it is not without challenges. The local community is concerned about the number of young people who have been drawn into gang activity and who are at risk of child criminal exploitation. Figures over the last two years show that 312 young people have been identified as being at risk of exploitation. We have had five section 60 stop and searches in place over...

Duty Solicitor Scheme: 5G Masts: Greater Manchester (13 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: I think there is agreement on the need for the roll-out of digital connectivity; that is a welcome investment. The frustration for local people and the industry is that there is not co-ordination across Government. I had a call earlier today with a provider that would love nothing more than to install the devices in the lamp post infrastructure that is already in place on the streets, but...

Duty Solicitor Scheme: 5G Masts: Greater Manchester (13 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: The Minister is being very generous in taking interventions. On that point, the Act in itself was a good piece of work, with the exception of the guidance that followed, which essentially allowed the sharing requirement to be one of request and then consideration, rather than requiring it to happen. The Government should be more directive and say, “No, if it’s there, you ought to use it...

Duty Solicitor Scheme: 5G Masts: Greater Manchester (13 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: I beg to move, That this House has considered the impact of 5G mast installations on communities in Greater Manchester. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. I am grateful for the opportunity to raise this issue, and appreciate the time given by those who are here today and by the Minister who will reply to the debate. The debate covers the powers given to...

Duty Solicitor Scheme: 5G Masts: Greater Manchester (13 Mar 2024)

Duty Solicitor Scheme: 5G Masts: Greater Manchester (13 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: That is the crux of the issue. Not many people object in principle to the installation of new equipment that makes life easier and better for people. Connectivity in the digital age is important for that, but how it is done is critical to garnering community support. I want to paint a picture of what this means. Imagine someone sitting in the house they have worked hard for, where they are...

Duty Solicitor Scheme: 5G Masts: Greater Manchester (13 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: Absolutely—I recognise the impact of these masts. I spoke to my right hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Dame Diana Johnson) about her private Member’s Bill, which is scheduled for debate. The general view is that it is quite far down the Order Paper and it would require the Government to lend their support for it to progress it. I believe that there is cross-party...

Duty Solicitor Scheme: 5G Masts: Greater Manchester (13 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: The approach we tried to take was, where possible, to use the underground ducting that was there through the BT Openreach system. We were able to remove some masts and cabinets completely because of that. Residents were clearly delighted that the proposed cabinet was eventually withdrawn. In some cases, we were able to move a mast around the corner if that meant it would be near a garage...

Jim McMahon: On low income tax payers, by the Government’s own assessment how many people have been brought into taxation because of the freeze on the personal tax allowance?

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Mar 2024)

Jim McMahon: It is interesting to follow the hon. Member for Hastings and Rye (Sally-Ann Hart). I will leave it there. The test of any Budget is simple, and we all know it, in politics and elsewhere in life: are working people better or worse off? The fact is that Britain is worse off. There are higher taxes, lower wages and a stagnant economy. The tax burden is at its highest for over 70 years, since...
