Ten-Year Drugs Strategy (6 Dec 2021)

Covid-19 Update (6 Dec 2021)

Energy-intensive Industries — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (24 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: I thank the Minister for the great interest he is taking in these sectors. I hope to welcome him very soon to Stoke-on-Trent. These jobs are so important for levelling up across the country. They are skilled, well-paid employment opportunities. As a number of Members have said, it is vital that we see a level playing field on energy. We have seen huge competition from Europe, which subsidises...

Energy-intensive Industries — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (24 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: I beg to move, That this House has considered energy intensive industries. It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Ms Nokes. I am grateful to have secured this timely debate. As we continue to emerge from the economic hit of the covid crisis and as financial activity builds and grows, energy prices are noticeably higher and our constituents are feeling the pinch. We have seen...

Energy-intensive Industries — [Caroline Nokes in the Chair] (24 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that point. I know that the Government are looking at that. Further trials at scale are being looked at—in Newcastle, I believe—to be undertaken by Cadent. I am sure that that will lead to further changes and to developments of hydrogen mix within the industry. As I was saying, it is important to do that testing for energy-intensive industries, not least...

Channel Crossings in Small Boats (22 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: We have seen thousands of people coming into the country.

Friend look at measures to reduce the numbers coming into the country and ensure that there is a much fairer share across the country?

Integrated Rail Plan: North and Midlands (18 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: I very much welcome what has been announced today. If we are truly to level up opportunities in Stoke-on-Trent, we must address the issues of capacity on the local network, and particularly release the full benefits of HS2 and the fantastic restoring your railway fund projects we have been working on. Will my right hon. Friend agree to look at the capacity enhancements that we want to see on...

Covid-19 Update (15 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: We have a walk-in vaccination clinic at Longton fire station on Friday, so will my right hon.

Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: I thank the Prime Minister and the Government for securing our fantastic Stoke-on-Trent levelling-up funding.

Friend agree to look at the possibility of bus franchising in the Potteries?

Will my right hon. Friend update the House on the Government’s work to encourage more young people into those highly skilled roles and attract more apprenticeships to Stoke-on-Trent?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (1 Nov 2021)

Jack Brereton: The Budget will deliver a stronger economy for the British people, and it has certainly delivered for the great city of Stoke-on-Trent. This has been possible only through Conservative MPs and the Conservative-led city council working together to secure the investment we need. The £56 million promised for realising our levelling-up schemes comes as a welcome addition to £40 million from the...

Jack Brereton: What steps his Department is taking to support regeneration in towns and cities.

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Regeneration in Towns and Cities (25 Oct 2021)

Jack Brereton: I thank the Minister for that response. Supporting cities such as Stoke-on-Trent, so that we level up opportunity and get the investment we need, is vital. Will my hon. Friend have a chat with the Chancellor and the Secretary of State about supporting our levelling-up bids through this week’s Budget, so that we get the investment we need in Stoke-on-Trent?

Net Zero Strategy and Heat and Buildings Strategy (19 Oct 2021)

Jack Brereton: Further to the points made by my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent Central (Jo Gideon) earlier, the ceramics sector in Stoke-on-Trent has faced significant energy price volatility recently. It does want to transition, but it cannot do so on its own while continuing to be competitive internationally. Will my right hon. Friend ensure that we have our fair share of the additional R&D...

International Travel (20 Sep 2021)

Jack Brereton: I welcome the decision to remove Pakistan from the red list on Wednesday. As the Secretary of State will know, I wrote to him about this issue. Many of my constituents have family links in Pakistan, and I know that he is well aware of how important those links are. It is shocking that Opposition Members have made this into some sort of political issue. I know that many of my constituents will...

UK Gas Market (20 Sep 2021)

Jack Brereton: The fluctuations in commercial gas prices particularly affect energy-intensive sectors such as ceramics, and the high price of commercial electricity does not encourage the transition from gas. Will my right hon. Friend look into what more can be done to support energy-intensive sectors and to support jobs like those in the ceramics sector in my Stoke-on-Trent South constituency?

Covid-19 Update (14 Sep 2021)

Jack Brereton: Across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, uptake of the vaccine has been very good. I thank all those who have been delivering the vaccine across Stoke-on-Trent in particular. Many 16 and 17-year-olds currently cannot use the online booking system. They have to wait for their GP to contact them or for one of the very few walk-in centres. Will my right hon. Friend look at extending that online...
