Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what steps he is taking to address skills shortages in the nuclear sector.
Sue Hayman: In west Cumbria, as in many other parts of the UK, the areas of greatest deprivation have not shifted for decades, so I was pleased to hear the Secretary of State say that we are now moving to a high-wage economy. We have heard a lot from hon. Members about wages and tackling in-work poverty. Surely the Secretary of State must agree that until we ensure that all businesses pay a decent living...
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what steps he is taking to increase the number of apprenticeships in the nuclear industry.

Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, if she will raise with the Chancellor of the Exchequer the provision of further research and development tax relief to companies developing innovative technologies to help accelerate the process of decommissioning nuclear sites.
Sue Hayman: The NHS in my constituency has moved beyond special measures into the success regime. Will the Secretary of State consider innovative models of care, because my constituency is very different from others and the trust will not achieve success without looking at how it can deliver safety in different ways?
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, if his Department will allow Cumbria County Council to receive revenue from the new homes bonus.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what support his Department plans to provide to Cumbria County Council to make up their funding shortfall.

Sue Hayman: I am delighted to speak in today’s debate, during which we have heard many excellent maiden speeches. Since being elected to serve as MP for Workington, I have been privileged to meet many young, hard-working people who only want to do well in life and make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live. For example, this coming weekend I am proud that I am going to be...
Sue Hayman: I could not agree more. The Government are interfering in how people live their lives and in how many children they should have. It is not for the Government to dictate to people how many children they can afford to have. People should be able to make that decision themselves. What if people’s circumstances change after they have had their children? How does that work?
Sue Hayman: No, I wish to finish my point. I was talking about vulnerable people. I know that the proposals suggest that vulnerable people will be supported. I asked about how vulnerable people will be assessed. The people whom I am really concerned about are those who do not quite meet the vulnerability criteria. They cannot afford the rent, but they are not classified as vulnerable. What happens to...
Sue Hayman: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I have always been a strong supporter of the arts. I believe that rounded communities are important for proper education. I support local theatre, and I was delighted to see that there is a parliamentary choir, which I joined and am enjoying very much. I therefore thank the hon. Member for Newark (Robert Jenrick) for securing...
Sue Hayman: As I was saying, west Cumbria needs continued access to funding, and I hope we can work to deliver that. I like to think really big for my constituency, so there is something I would like the Minister to consider. Right now, major collections in London are left undisplayed: for example, Turner’s watercolours are just stacked away, and if someone wants to see them they actually have to...
Sue Hayman: I was aware that people do not know exactly where all the pieces of art that are catalogued are. I hope that my idea would help to prevent such things from happening in the future. It may even enable the Government to discover some of the lost artefacts. Leeds, Newcastle and Manchester have all benefited from art being moved out of the capital into the regions, so why not move some to west...
