Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Broadband and Mobile Phone Coverage: Rural Areas (8 Feb 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I thank the Minister for her response, but around 33% of my rural constituency of Copeland is still not covered by fast internet, which is holding back our villages and farm businesses. What can be done, as soon as possible, to help those businesses and communities?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (30 Jan 2018)

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (30 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I thank the Minister and welcome him to his new position. Sellafield in my Copeland constituency is one of Britain’s biggest single-site employers. It is about to award its multimillion PPP contract. What is he doing to promote the role of SMEs, rather than just large companies, when awarding those contracts?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: Cumbria is celebrated internationally for its lakes and mountains, and it is known for nuclear excellence. This afternoon, Parliament hosts “A Taste of Cumbria”, showcasing our fine food and drink. May I extend a warm invitation to you, Mr Speaker, and to the Prime Minister, to pop along and join us to sample some of our finest fare?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Power to amend legislation relating to nuclear safeguards (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: The Bill is absolutely essential to the nuclear industry. Without it, after we leave the European Union, our nuclear industry would collapse. As I said earlier, it would be economically crushing not to have a safeguards regime in place. That would have catastrophic implications for every part of the country, which would be felt across the whole sector. Following the construction and...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Nuclear safeguards (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: Does my hon. Friend know that the ONR has already begun the process of recruiting safeguarding inspectors?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Transition period (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: New clause 1 concerns me, because it seems to me to be a delaying tactic. As I have mentioned, Euratom and the IAEA were really formed in 1957, when Calder Hall was built in my constituency. There are now 70-something businesses operating in the nuclear industry in my constituency alone. I have spoken to each and every one of them, as well as to Sellafield, the Low Level Waste Repository and...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Transition period (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: That is exactly my point. This is about certainty and getting on with the job. Not having the Bill in place would be absolutely catastrophic for my constituency and the whole county of Cumbria.

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Transition period (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: It is not just my constituency, though; this is about the whole country. Today, more than 20% of our electricity is provided by nuclear power stations. The hon. Lady is not quite correct. My memory of the meeting she mentions is that we were told we would have sufficient aspects in place to be able to have the regime, there or thereabouts, to continue with our existing—[Interruption.]

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Transition period (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I thank my hon. Friend. It is important that we hold the Minister and the Department to account, and that we focus on the critical path of recruiting the right number of staff into the ONR and ensuring that the regime is in place when we leave. We need to get on with the job, and the 70-something businesses in my constituency absolutely want us to do that.

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Transition period (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I have already said that I believe the transition period will happen, as the Prime Minister has indicated. New clause 1 is a delaying tactic, and that is absolutely not what the industry needs. We need certainty, and we need it today. I am pleased that the Department is already acting to recruit to the ONR safeguarding inspectors, who will also have responsibility for safety and security....

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Transition period (23 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I feel I must pull up the hon. Gentleman because he has twice referred to Euratom having been around for 40 years, but it began in 1957. It was born out of the civil nuclear industry that began in my constituency of Copeland when Calder Hall was first constructed. I thought that I should made it clear that this was from Britain and by Britain back in 1957. We have actually had it for 70...

Trudy Harrison: What progress his Department has made on supporting the economies of coastal communities.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Coastal Communities (22 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: The Social Mobility Commission’s “State of the Nation” report revealed that the socioeconomic prospects of those who live in rural coastal areas are poor. We have world-class industries and skills in many sectors, so what steps is the Minister taking to ensure that we realise our full potential?

Trudy Harrison: What steps the Government are taking to ensure that women are able to access high-quality apprenticeships.

Women and Equalities: Apprenticeships (11 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I thank the Minister for her response. The National College for Nuclear opens in my neighbouring constituency on 9 February. This will add to an already fantastic asset of training facilities with world-class equipment. What steps are the Government taking to ensure that young people with disabilities are able to access these training courses and apprenticeships?

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Trudy Harrison: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham) on obtaining the debate and on his persuasive email to colleagues encouraging us to join up, which I did. It was very easy, and I know that he will be checking how progressive we are in my office. The scheme is much needed, not least because of the statistics that we have heard, showing that about 50% of...
