Government’s Education Catch-up and Mental Health Recovery Programmes (3 Feb 2022)

Mark Fletcher: It is an honour to follow the right hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne East (Mr Brown) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon), who gave an excellent speech outlining the scale of the problem we are looking to solve. In my two years and one month as the Member of Parliament for Bolsover, we have had many divisions and many changes to our country. However, what was...

Stalking Advocates — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (31 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: Deservedly.

Stalking Advocates — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (31 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I understand that the Minister is against the clock, but in relation to the question that the hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr Perkins) just asked, will the Minister undertake to write to the Deputy Prime Minister to make him aware of today’s debate, and the recommendations that have been outlined by various Members? Perhaps whether they are appropriate can then be considered.

Stalking Advocates — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (31 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Mark. It is an absolute pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Gower (Tonia Antoniazzi), who already knows that she is one of my favourite Members of the House. She gave an exceptional and incredibly powerful speech. I fully endorse her comments on best practice and advocates in police forces, and, indeed, the questions she raised. She...

Stalking Advocates — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (31 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I agree wholeheartedly. Indeed, until not long ago, my husband worked for an organisation that used to go into schools to help spread tolerance and understanding—albeit in a slightly different field—to ensure that people were comfortable from a young age with those conversations, their rights, and people who may be a bit different. That is incredibly important. This is an aside that I did...

Stalking Advocates — [Sir Mark Hendrick in the Chair] (31 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I absolutely do. We seem to be in general agreement, which may be more worrying for my Whips than anybody else. Obviously, the shadow Minister who is responsible for the online harms Bill is very much a mutual friend of ours. The question of what is accessible on the internet is worrying in a variety of lights, but critical thought and being able to understand what is normal and what is right...

Written Answers — Cop26: Cop26 (19 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: What priorities he has for his COP26 Presidency year.

English Football League Governance: Derby County FC (18 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) for securing this urgent question. Like a number of local MPs, I met the EFL yesterday—as a Derbyshire MP, many constituents have written to me—and I have to say that, following that meeting, I could not help but share some of the suspicions outlined by the right hon. Member for Derby South (Margaret Beckett),...

Health and Social Care: Covid-19 Vaccination Sites (18 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: What steps his Department is taking to provide additional covid-19 vaccination sites.

Health and Social Care: Covid-19 Vaccination Sites (18 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: A number of residents in Bolsover have written to me to ask why there is not a specific vaccination centre in the town. Given that the booster roll-out has slowed locally and given our poor bus connections, could the Minister—as my former Whip, I know that she is incredibly persuasive—look into having a specific site in Bolsover?

Environmental Audit Committee: Smart Motorways — [Mr Phillip Hollobone in the Chair] (13 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I have enjoyed the contributions from all members of the Transport Committee. I welcome its report and the Government’s response. I take a slightly different perspective on this debate, because the spine of my constituency is junctions 28 to 30 of the M1, in which we have 30 miles of all lane running smart motorway. To the...

Careers Guidance in Schools (11 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: Thank you, Ms Rees. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. My right hon. Friend the Member for Tatton (Esther McVey) gave a storming speech. The quickest way to summarise my speech would be to say I agree with everything she said—I thought it was marvellous. I declare my interest as a governor at two schools in my constituency. When it comes to the challenge of levelling up,...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces Bill (10 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what assessment his Department has made of the potential impact of provisions in the Armed Forces Bill on (a) defence personnel and (b) the Armed Forces Covenant.

Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme (6 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: The UK has a very proud history of accepting people who are in great need. I think of the Ugandan Asian community, who I know very well. This scheme shows that we do have legal and safe routes to come and live in this country. Does that not reinforce the need to crack down on illegal routes, particularly the small boats? Does the Minister agree that the legislation that is currently in the...

Wales: Transport Connections (5 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: What discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on improving transport connections between Wales and the rest of the UK.

Wales: Transport Connections (5 Jan 2022)

Mark Fletcher: The Secretary of State will know that certain roads, such as the M4 and the A55 in north Wales, connect our great Union and are therefore the property of the whole Union. Does he agree that these roads should be treated as pan-UK roads and should be overseen in a similar way to how the European Union oversees the trans-European transport network?

Transport: Topical Questions (16 Dec 2021)

Mark Fletcher: I applaud the Government’s decision not to go ahead with the eastern leg of HS2 through the Bolsover constituency. That gives huge relief to those in dozens of the villages that I represent. Can my hon. Friend give me the Christmas present that so many residents are looking for, and lift the safeguarding on the land across dozens of villages in the constituency?

Metropolitan Police: Stephen Port Murders Inquest (13 Dec 2021)

Mark Fletcher: All right-thinking Members of the House support our police and understand that they do a tremendous job, often in difficult circumstances, but cases such as this leave us in an awful position because as the right hon. Member for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge) outlined, there are some incredibly difficult questions to be answered. Does the Minister agree that police up and down the country...

Work and Pensions: National Disability Strategy (13 Dec 2021)

Mark Fletcher: What steps she is taking with Cabinet colleagues to ensure cross-Government delivery of the national disability strategy.

Work and Pensions: National Disability Strategy (13 Dec 2021)

Mark Fletcher: Increasing employment opportunities is key to supporting independent living for disabled people and people with health conditions. Will the Minister reaffirm our commitment to supporting 1 million disabled people into work by 2027?
