Achieving Economic Growth (18 May 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I am afraid the hon. Lady did not give way to me, so I am going to return the favour. The Queen’s Speech set out some of the things that we have needed to do for a long time for the purpose of economic growth. I am thinking particularly of the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill, which offers several solutions for Bolsover, Derbyshire, and the east midlands in general. That part of the...

Business of the House (19 May 2022)

Mark Fletcher: The Leader of the House will know that I recently visited Exclusive Secure Care Services in Barlborough in my constituency. While I was hugely impressed by the company, I was disturbed to hear that this organisation, which looks after and transports some of the most vulnerable people in our society—whether they are children in extremely difficult positions, or those who are having mental...

Education: Topical Questions (23 May 2022)

Mark Fletcher: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Education: Topical Questions (23 May 2022)

Mark Fletcher: Last week I received an email from a parent on Holbeck Avenue in Bolsover, saying: “There is no 6th form available at The Bolsover School and so pupils wishing to do A levels have an expensive bus ride in order to get anywhere. For instance it costs around £650 a year if your child is successful to get a place at St Mary’s High School in Chesterfield and the choice of courses at...

International Trade: UK Exports to Ukraine (16 Jun 2022)

Mark Fletcher: What steps her Department is taking to help UK exports reach Ukraine.

International Trade: UK Exports to Ukraine (16 Jun 2022)

Mark Fletcher: Will the Minister update the House on how liberalising tariffs on Ukraine has supported the flow of trade and, in turn, on how effective our sanctions have been against Russia?

Derby County Football Club (28 Jun 2022)

Mark Fletcher: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone, and to follow the right hon. Member for Derby South (Margaret Beckett). I find myself wanting to agree with pretty much everything my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) said in her opening remarks. I thought she gave an eloquent and helpful walk-through of the timeline we have experienced in Derbyshire. I...

Transport: UK Supply Chains (30 Jun 2022)

Mark Fletcher: What steps his Department is taking to support UK supply chains.

Transport: UK Supply Chains (30 Jun 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I thank the Minister for that very brief answer. I recently met Rick Bromley, who runs a road haulage business in my constituency, and he was very concerned about the impact of rising fuel prices on the industry and the uncertainty that such prices are creating. What assessment have the Minister and the Department made of the sustainability of the haulage sector given the current uncertainties?

Tributes to Her Late Majesty the Queen (10 Sep 2022)

Mark Fletcher: It is with some humility that I speak today on behalf of people and communities across the Bolsover constituency. I place on record our thanks to Her late Majesty for all that she did for our nation, and our sincerest condolences to the royal family, who are very much in our thoughts and prayers. The words: “Grief is the price we pay for love” have been often quoted over the past two days...

Shale Gas Extraction (22 Sep 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I have listened carefully to the Secretary of State, and I have to say that the local consent plans do not seem to wash. It seems to come back to communities’ being bought off rather than having a vote. Can the Secretary of State confirm once and for all that residents across Bolsover who are concerned about fracking will be given a vote to object to these schemes locally?

Ban on Fracking for Shale Gas Bill (19 Oct 2022)

Mark Fletcher: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Ban on Fracking for Shale Gas Bill (19 Oct 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I find myself in strange agreement with many of the arguments being made from the Opposition Dispatch Box, but will the right hon. Gentleman be clear that the vote that we are having tonight is on not banning fracking, but a procedural matter for the House of Commons? Will he be truthful to the public about what we are voting on tonight?

Health and Social Care: Local Dental Provision (1 Nov 2022)

Mark Fletcher: What steps his Department has taken to help improve local dental provision.

Health and Social Care: Local Dental Provision (1 Nov 2022)

Mark Fletcher: The Minister is aware that recent Local Government Association analysis showed that Bolsover has some of the worst dentist provision in the UK. That is highlighted by constituents to me daily. Whether it is getting access to treatment or even registering for an NHS practice, my constituents are struggling. Will the Minister take a look at that and meet me so we can discuss what more we can do...

Northern Ireland: Veterans (9 Nov 2022)

Mark Fletcher: What steps he is taking with Cabinet colleagues to support veterans in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland: Veterans (9 Nov 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. Does he agree that the Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill will provide certainty to those who served in Northern Ireland by ending the cycle of reinvestigations that has burdened too many for too long?

Business of the House (17 Nov 2022)

Mark Fletcher: For too long, residents of villages such as Newton and Blackwell in my constituency have had to live under the cloud of HS2 safeguarding, which is blocking investment and blighting communities. It is about time we moved on. With the planned upgrade to the midland main line, there is no good reason to allow HS2 Ltd to block levelling-up projects along what was the Chesterfield spur. Can we...

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Mark Fletcher: “There is nothing in the autumn statement that shows compassion” was one of the last sentences from the hon. Member for Jarrow (Kate Osborne). With the triple lock protected, benefits up by 10.1%, the household energy cap extended, a £900 support package for households on means-tested benefits, £300 support payments to pensioners, £150 to individuals on disability benefits, energy...

Energy (oil and gas) profits levy (22 Nov 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I am in full flow, but I am happy to give way.
