Public Health Model to Reduce Youth Violence (13 Dec 2018)

Jack Brereton: I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak in the debate. I am sorry to have to say that, unfortunately, youth violence has been on the rise in parts of my constituency over the past year—not on the scale of what has happened in London, of course, but the Meir area of my constituency now has the highest level of antisocial behaviour in the whole of Staffordshire, much of which is caused...

Police Funding Settlement (13 Dec 2018)

Jack Brereton: I thank the Minister and the Home Secretary for listening to the points raised on the Conservative Benches about the need to increase funding for our police and help to tackle crime.

Friend also...

Does the Secretary of State agree that that will help the Conservatives on the local authority in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Support for Businesses and Entrepreneurs (11 Dec 2018)

Rail Services: North Staffordshire — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Jack Brereton: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that. It is very true of stations that I have already mentioned. Etruria, Wedgwood and Barlaston all lost services as a result of those changes, so I would agree with him. I am especially delighted that we will be receiving investment from the transforming cities fund, which I hope will take forward much-needed improvements locally. That includes Stoke-on-Trent...

Rail Services: North Staffordshire — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (28 Nov 2018)

Jack Brereton: I thank my hon. Friend for that comment. I totally agree. From travelling on those routes myself, I know that they are very overcrowded—in some cases, so overcrowded that I would say they are unsafe. The northern end of the route between Stoke-on-Trent and New Street suffers particularly from significant overcrowding, which has a knock-on effect on the reliability of cleanliness and...

Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords] (27 Nov 2018)

Jack Brereton: I absolutely agree. Like many Members, I have had a number of constituents come to me to raise concerns about the timeliness of hearings, going to court and how long it takes to get to court. That is so important. I am pleased that it is one of the key things that will, I hope, be addressed by the Bill, which will speed up that process so that we see a much more efficient system of getting...
