Salisbury Incident (12 Sep 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I start by thanking all those involved in the investigation surrounding the Salisbury incident, including the 250 detectives and the thousands of police and security officers.

We should never forget their unfaltering determination to comb through 11,000 hours...

Nuclear Sector Deal — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (11 Jul 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I thank the Minister for his comments, which were both reassuring and helpful for all of us who speak positively about the nuclear industry. I will come on to the comments by my SNP colleagues, because I welcome them and the challenge of the hon.

I...

Nuclear Sector Deal — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (11 Jul 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. There is huge scope for small and medium reactors in Britain. Perhaps even more importantly, there is the opportunity for us to export skills in manufacturing and the deployment of modular reactors across the globe. But SMRs alone will not keep the lights on. To ensure that we deal with the reality of an ageing network of existing nuclear reactors,...

Nuclear Sector Deal (28 Jun 2018)

Trudy Harrison: This is a brilliant day and I am delighted that the Government are demonstrating their recognition of our nuclear sector. I was particularly pleased to see the reference to 40% more females working in the industry by 2030, and I hope the Minister will join me in acknowledging the work that the women in nuclear do, but also the barriers, because often, nuclear licensed sites are in coastal,...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I would like to start by commending my police and crime commissioner, Peter McCall, and the Cumbria constabulary, which has recently been graded as “good” by Her Majesty’s inspectorate. My very rural constituency covers an area of around 500 square miles and has a population of 80,000 people. This brings two challenges. The huge geographical area of Cumbria, with the Lake...

Rural Crime and Public Services (6 Jun 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. In that context, I also want to commend the Cumbria constabulary for its work on bringing together the Copeland hub, which is a first in the county. It is a multi-agency hub that brings together neighbourhood policing, the council and housing. The election of police and crime commissioners has given communities, including those in rural areas, a...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Agreements required before withdrawal (8 May 2018)

Of the 87,000 people working in the UK’s nuclear sector today, some 27,500 people—nearly 40% of the workforce—are based in Cumbria. That is why, in Copeland and in Cumbria, we proudly call ourselves the centre of nuclear excellence, and I am so pleased to hear from the Minister that swift...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Agreements required before withdrawal (8 May 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I thank my hon. Friend. The importance of having measures in place is clear from speaking to those working in the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. It is also clear from reading the Minister’s report, published on 27 March, and no doubt from reading the next report, to be published in June, that the ministerial team is making considerable effort to address all concerns. I am grateful...
