Land Banking (10 Jun 2021)

Christian Wakeford: ...barely exists, so why is the UK different? Unfortunately, it is because of our planning system. Land banking is also posing a serious threat to our green belt as the Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham, has sought to look for extra space to build several thousand new homes by encroaching on green-belt areas such as Elton reservoir and Simister village in my constituency. I made a pledge...

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome - Question (9 Jun 2021)

Baroness Bakewell: ...screening. That has been building as a case for many years and parliamentarians have acknowledged it. There is an APPG on cardiac arrest; there have been debates, including an Adjournment debate; Andy Burnham has moved for this; and there is a general feeling that something must happen here to acknowledge the evidence that exists and reduce young people’s deaths. Will the Minister set...

Britain’s Railways (20 May 2021)

Barbara Keeley: ...Transport Secretary agrees that that is unacceptable. On the face of it, these plans are going to do little to improve accessibility, so can he confirm that he will be giving our regional mayor, Andy Burnham, the funding and powers he needs to control and improve stations, as they do in London?

A Plan for the NHS and Social Care (19 May 2021)

Barbara Keeley: ...years in abusive settings. I call on the Secretary of State to bring forward new legislation in this Session, so we can finally change this appalling situation. With our Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham, we have seen the difference that radical local government can make to people’s lives, with action on homelessness and radical plans to create a public transport system that works...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (18 May 2021)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: that includes the former chairman of the FA, David Bernstein, former Sports Minister Helen Grant MP, who is promoting a Private Member’s Bill in the Commons to establish a regulator, Andy Burnham, the noble Lord, Lord King of Lothbury, and Gary Neville. I conclude with a flavour of what they say: “Clubs take excessive financial risks to achieve promotion, particularly incurring...

Transport: Rural Transport Connections (29 Apr 2021)

Robert Largan: After five years, Andy Burnham is finally getting on with franchising bus services in Greater Manchester, and this is a step that I broadly welcome. However, there are many towns, like Glossop, Hadfield and New Mills, that are just outside Greater Manchester and rely heavily on cross-border bus services. Does the Minister agree that the Mayor of Greater Manchester and Derbyshire County...

Transport: Rail Network: Accessibility (29 Apr 2021)

Navendu Mishra: ...Greater Manchester have step-free access—that is 38 out of 93 stations. This is significantly lower than the north-west region as a whole, which is at 63%, and the national average at 61%. Mayor Andy Burnham has called for all railway stations in Greater Manchester to be fully accessible by 2025. According to the charity Leonard Cheshire, it would take just 1% to 3% of annual transport...

Support for Asylum Seekers — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (27 Apr 2021)

David Simmonds: ...that people newly arrived in the UK would be able to potentially jump social housing waiting lists. True or not, that was a serious political concern that they faced at the time. In the mid-2000s, Andy Burnham, then the Immigration Minister and now the Mayor of Greater Manchester, signed off on the implementation of dispersal, creating a new route for asylum seekers, whereby they were...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 87B (17 Mar 2021)

Baroness Kennedy of Cradley: ..., Gloucester and Northamptonshire are some of the forces already putting this into practice. This approach also has the support of the national policing adviser for hate crime and metro mayors Andy Burnham, Steve Rotheram, Sadiq Khan and Dan Jarvis, and many police and crime commissioners and multiple councils around the country are passing motions in support. Some will query the wording...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill: [2nd Allotted Day] (16 Mar 2021)

Christian Wakeford: ...figures on violent and sexual assaults in my constituency and, indeed, in Greater Manchester. However, with the failure of Greater Manchester police’s data system and the political leadership by Andy Burnham in regard to this, we do not have any of those figures because they got lost, for some reason. On introducing life sentences for killer drivers, I want to start by thanking my right...

Income Tax (Charge) (3 Mar 2021)

Liam Byrne: ...share. We got just 3% of that money today. I am afraid that, once again, we have been left behind, looked over and left out. The towns funds that we secured today are just three quarters of what Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram got up in the north-west and just 39% of what was secured by council leaders in the east midlands. We cannot go on like this. We need a Mayor who is going to stand...

Council Tax: Government’s Proposed Increase (25 Jan 2021)

Chris Clarkson: ...of increases, and Greater Manchester is a prime example. In Heywood and Middleton, my constituents will be faced with a council tax rise of almost 5%. The council is hiking rates by 3.99%. Andy Burnham will be adding the maximum £10 allowed for the police precept, and another £14 on top for his general precept. That will put a minimum burden of £58 per household on my constituency. Andy...

Covid-19 Financial Assistance (Gaps in Support) (13 Jan 2021)

Tracy Brabin: ...Government have stepped in with a financial safety net, but so many others—our fellow taxpayers—have been abandoned and left to fend for themselves. In the words of Manchester’s Metro Mayor, Andy Burnham: “Basic fairness demands a solution for those excluded.” There are many who agree. During the recall last week, Member after Member from all parts of the House stood up and...

Covid-19 Response: Defence Support (12 Jan 2021)

Ben Wallace: I have visited the north-west regional response and spoken to the Lancashire leaders and then the Greater Manchester leaders and the Mayor, Andy Burnham, on a whole range of these things. This is not due to be drawn down other than in that, as on many MACAs, we put a time limit on it to make sure we examine whether it should continue or whether we need to modify it and learn lessons. We will...

Hospitality Industry: Government Support — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (11 Jan 2021)

Navendu Mishra: ...infection rates. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) for securing this important debate. I also thank the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and his night-time economy adviser, Sacha Lord, who have done so much in recent months to push the Government to provide a fair financial support package and who have set out the...

Covid-19 Support Schemes: Ineligible People (9 Dec 2020)

Tracy Brabin: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Rees. Yesterday I chaired a meeting of the gaps in support all-party parliamentary group, during which we heard from Andy Burnham, Dan Jarvis and Steve Rotheram about how the metro Mayors are working to support businesses in their areas to plug the gaps left by Government. Dan Jarvis, the Mayor of Sheffield, explained that an estimated...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (30 Nov 2020)

Baroness Thornton: ...that MPs would be involved in the decision. Has that commitment now been abandoned? Then Ministers agreed to involve regional leaders but, it has to be said, took exception to being challenged by Andy Burnham. What role do regional leaders now have in these decisions, or is the position really that the Prime Minister imposes from Downing Street restrictions on communities across the...

Covid-19 Update (26 Nov 2020)

Jon Ashworth: ...of State promised that MPs would be involved in the decision. Has that commitment been abandoned? Then, Ministers agreed to involve regional leaders, but took exception to being challenged by Andy Burnham, so what role do regional leaders now have in these decisions, or is the position really that the Prime Minister imposes from Downing Street restrictions on communities across the...

Spending Review 2020 and OBR Forecast (25 Nov 2020)

Bill Esterson: ...wrong. In the Liverpool city region, the Mayor, Steve Rotheram, has found a package to support some of the people who have been excluded. When will the Chancellor step up, support Steve Rotheram, Andy Burnham and the other Labour leaders in local government, and put a support package together? He has to admit that these people have not qualified for furlough, self-employed support or...

North of England: Infrastructure Spending — [James Gray in the Chair] (25 Nov 2020)

Mike Amesbury: ...; it is about power, democracy and shaping our own future. The missing part of the jigsaw, or the unfinished business, is genuine devolution for Cheshire and Warrington. In the past, I worked for Andy Burnham, the current metro Mayor. I was a councillor for 11 years in Manchester, so I have been involved in shaping devolution in that patch, which is just up the road from my constituency...
