Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill (8 Jun 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: I very much welcome the Bill and its Second Reading today. It is great to see the Minister in his place, who I know will engage with colleagues throughout the process. Hyndburn and Haslingden was one of the forgotten areas of the north for too long, but I vowed to change that. I recently listed in this place some of the investment we have already had and what we want to see in the future, so...

Fly-tipping and Illegal Dumping — [SIR MARK HENDRICK in the Chair] (24 May 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Mark. I want to tell a story. It is the story of a constituent who wrote to me recently, and it is about a lovely spring morning of the sort we all dream about. The weather was beautiful, as it always is in Lancashire, and there was not a single cloud in the sky. The weather was so wonderful that my constituent and his wife decided to...

Justice: Reducing Reoffending (24 May 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: What steps he is taking to reduce reoffending.

Justice: Reducing Reoffending (24 May 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: As recently as February in my Hyndburn constituency, Lancashire police had to issue dispersal orders in Accrington town centre because of antisocial behaviour. Will my right hon. Friend tell me how we can prevent young people in particular from reoffending or falling into bad habits, particularly when they have been through the youth justice system?

Transport (19 May 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: To truly level up, we need to make sure that we provide suitable connections for our constituents to get to the opportunities that exist, whether that be by road or rail. That is one of my key focuses for the residents of Hyndburn and Haslingden, but we have some serious issues with transport and connectivity, one example being that a journey to Manchester by road, which is about 26 miles...

Transport (19 May 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: I am sure the hon. Gentleman will welcome the £34 million being given to Lancashire County Council to improve bus services. That is exactly what the Government are doing for areas like mine.

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: One of the points I think my hon. Friend is making is that it is so important to make sure that we utilise brownfield land to the maximum for housing and so on, but does he agree that it is important that local people have their say on the design of their area and what goes where?

Football Governance (25 Apr 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: I welcome the Government’s response to the fan-led review undertaken by my hon. Friend the Member for Chatham and Aylesford (Tracey Crouch). I thank her for recently visiting Accrington Stanley and its supporters, and, in particular, its fantastic chairman, Andy Holt, who people know is quite a vocal supporter of the fan-led review. There are concerns about the timing of this, as the...

Referral of Prime Minister to Committee of Privileges (21 Apr 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: Is not the point that we all face abuse from being in this place—as one of the youngest Members in the Chamber, I fear every day for the bullying and harassment that I will receive—and that all targeted attacks do is stoke the flames so that we receive more abuse?

Appointment of Lord Lebedev (29 Mar 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: I hope this is also not a controversial point to raise, but could the hon. Member just confirm whether he campaigned for the former leader of the Labour party, the right hon. Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), to sit on the Front Bench and lead his party?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Price Increase in April 2022 (29 Mar 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: I have been contacted by many pensioners across Hyndburn and Haslingden who are concerned about the cost of their energy bills. Will the Secretary of State set out what measures are in place to support my residents, and will he continue to work with other Departments to keep those measures under review?

Business of the House (10 Mar 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: My amazing constituent Sy Hughes, who runs the Fitness Bank in Oswaldtwistle, has taken on the unimaginable by walking from Manchester to the Eiffel Tower in Paris to raise money for the Bleakholt animal sanctuary. He is currently on his last day and is due to arrive tonight. Will the Leader of the House join me in thanking and congratulating Sy Hughes, and will he allow a debate in...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: Clause 7 - Duties to collaborate and plan to prevent and reduce serious violence (28 Feb 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: Does the Minister agree that it is important for Opposition Members to understand what Rape Crisis England & Wales has said, which is that: “Rape prosecutions are already at an all-time low, and we believe adding sex/gender as a protected characteristic would further complicate the judicial process and make it even harder to secure convictions.”?

Business of the House (24 Feb 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: Yesterday, the Government announced that both Hyndburn and Rossendale have been identified as two of the 109 places for levelling up for culture, meaning that they are a priority for additional investment for our fantastic arts, culture and heritage across Hyndburn and Haslingden. Does the Leader of the House agree that this is exactly what we mean by levelling up and putting Hyndburn and...

Living with Covid-19 (21 Feb 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Our historic vaccine programme is the reason that we are in this position today. I want to take this opportunity to thank everybody involved in Hyndburn and Haslingden for the roll-out of the vaccination programme, and those who have had to deal with the restrictions for longer than most. Does the Prime Minister agree that this is exactly why we must learn to live with...

Grit Bins (8 Feb 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: Does my hon. Friend agree that in places such as High Peak and Hyndburn and Haslingden, severe weather affects residents? The provision of grit bins is key around schools, for example, where severe weather can cause severe delays for people who are trying to get their children to school. Getting grit bins in the places where they need to be is something that local councils really need to focus on.

Levelling Up (2 Feb 2022)

Sara Britcliffe: I grew up in a northern industrial town, and I politely say to the hon. Member for Wigan (Lisa Nandy) that a plan for levelling-up opportunity is exactly what such towns need. Delivery is key, so will the Secretary of State make sure that we get shovels in the ground?
