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...
Sue Hayman: The idea of seven-day working sounds absolutely fantastic for supplying services, but in west Cumbria, where we struggle to deliver services five days a week, it sounds like nothing more than a fantastic pipe dream. I am aware that the Secretary of State understands the specific problems we have in west Cumbria, but I want to ask him about a letter that I recently wrote to him to do with...
Sue Hayman: Workington court in my constituency is one of the courts up for closure. I want to ask the Secretary of State about the impact that that will have on my constituents getting to courts. He recently said that when looking for courts up for closure: “What we tried to do was to make sure that the time it will take for any citizen to travel to court remains less than an hour.” Currently, it...
Sue Hayman: I will be very quick. If the court is closed, 58% will take up to two hours if they have a car, and 43% will take over two hours by public transport. Does the Minister consider that acceptable, and will he look at it again?
Sue Hayman: I am interested to hear what my hon. Friend has to say about the Flood Re scheme. Cockermouth and Workington in my constituency have suffered very badly from floods. Does she agree that it is also a problem that businesses are not covered by Flood Re and thereby fall short?
Sue Hayman: The right hon. Gentleman makes a critical point about the camps. The UNHCR, the World Health Organisation and other organisations working in the camps are at breaking point, so we must also look at how we support them.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what steps his Department is taking to prevent toxic fumes from aircraft engines entering the cabin and causing crew and passengers to fall ill.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what the diagnosis rate for dementia of people of each (a) age group and (b) gender in (i) Allerdale borough and (b) Copeland borough has been in each of the last 10 years.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what the rate of dementia among each (a) age group and (b) gender in (i) Allerdale borough and (ii) Copeland borough has been in each of the last 10 years.
Sue Hayman: Clause 3 sets out the important public services for which 40% support will be required in ballots. Is my hon. Friend as surprised as I am that “decommissioning of nuclear installations and management of radioactive waste and spent fuel” is included in the list? Can he think of any instance when a strike at a nuclear decommissioning facility has put the public at risk?
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, if she will provide additional research and development tax relief to companies developing innovative technologies to help accelerate the decommissioning process.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, by what date the decommissioning of (a) Sellafield and (b) Magnox sites is planned to be complete.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, if she will make an assessment of the effect on (a) skills, (b) the supply chain, (c) small and medium-sized enterprises and (d) local economies of potential reductions to funding of nuclear decommissioning.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what assessment she has made of the effect of reductions in funding to the nuclear decommissioning sector on the supply chain in that sector.
Sue Hayman: Given the concerns expressed today about the sustainability of the UK’s future energy markets, and also the investment required in renewables, what meetings has the Secretary of State had with smaller marine and tidal developers, particularly in the north of England, such as Solway Energy Gateway?
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what her policy is on protecting high hazard areas of work at the Sellafield nuclear facility.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, what the energy generating potential is of the UK's plutonium stockpile.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, whether her Department plans to take a decision on the reuse options for managing plutonium stocks in 2015-16.
Sue Hayman: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, if she will make an assessment of the marginal annual cost to the public purse of delaying the UK's nuclear decommissioning programme.
