[Mr. Eric Martlew in the Chair] — Flood Defences (Norfolk) (6 May 2008)

Henry Bellingham: ...the issue of flood sirens on a number of occasions. They played an important role during the 1978 floods in getting people out of their properties, particularly beach houses in places such as Heacham, Hunstanton and Snettisham. The Environment Agency argues that it has a mobile telephone alert system, and that people are on the internet and have land lines, but half the joy of owning a...

Orders of the Day — Gambling Bill: Clause 58 — Age limit for Category D gaming machines (24 Jan 2005)

Henry Bellingham: I declare an interest in that two towns in my constituency, Hunstanton and Heacham, have a large number of amusement arcades, which are, in the main, family owned. Many have been in those families for generations, and they employ, directly and indirectly, up to 250 people, which in small seaside towns is a significant number. I have been lobbied by a number of arcade owners. I had the...

Community Transport (16 Jul 2003)

Norman Lamb: .... There are other, existing schemes that have used RTP funding to expand their services. The West Norfolk community transport project, an excellent community car scheme, covers six parishes around Heacham. It is primarily used by people who need to get to hospital appointments. There are also the Swaffham rural links and Wymondham flexibus services. There are lots of schemes cropping up...

Dr. Adrian Garfoot (25 Jun 2003)

Henry Bellingham: the House. One should also consider the tragedy affecting Dr. Garfoot. He has been struck off. It is extraordinary that in Norfolk, in my constituency, where there are many GP shortages—in the Heacham, Dersingham and Snettisham practice there are two—Dr. Garfoot is living in Gaywood with his father, a Methodist minister, and doing his best to find ways of earning a living, although...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Oct 2002)

Henry Bellingham: Will the Prime Minister find time today to have a look at the case of my constituent, Mr. Frederick Matthews of Heacham, who is suffering great pain and inconvenience as the result of a haemorrhage in the pupil of his left eye? There is a clinically proven treatment and his doctor wants to treat him, but the local hospital has said that the NHS will only fund it if he goes blind in the other...

Digital Television (24 Apr 2001)

Dr George Turner: ...knows that I am keen to be involved in finding solutions and she is aware of my impatience to do so.

On Saturday I was visiting homes close to the sensory garden that she visited on that occasion. She will understand the frustration of my constituent who complained that his family...

Orders of the Day — Postal Services Bill (15 Feb 2000)

Dr George Turner: ...providing Government services and to take over the provision of services from which the commercial sector has run away. I recently complained in the House about the closure of the last bank in Heacham, which has 5,000 inhabitants and is the largest village in my constituency. Why did it close? There was a clear failure of the commercial marketplace. None of the banks had enough customers,...

Business of the House (18 Nov 1999)

Dr George Turner: I am sorry to have to tell the House that the Barclays bank branch in Heacham will close tomorrow. This is one of many bank closures in rural areas of England, and I am sure that it results from general market failure. None of the banks seems able to justify a presence in our larger villages. There are 5,000 people in Heacham, and Barclays is the last bank there. Will the Government recognise...

Broadcasting (Regional Coverage) (28 Apr 1999)

Richard Spring: considered to ensure that no long-term problems arise on the coverage front. The hon. Member for North-West Norfolk noted an anomaly in his constituency and referred to a serious assault in Heacham. It was extraordinary that the television reconstruction was seen by 750,000 people but not by those who live in and around the area of the crime. The switch from analogue to digital has...

Last year, following a serious sexual assault on a woman in Heacham, Anglia...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (7 Jul 1997)

Members may be interested to know that more than 200 years ago in the village of Heacham in my constituency agricultural workers gathered with their farming employers to petition Parliament for a minimum wage, which they wished to see linked to the price of corn. My...

STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS, &c.: Water Quality (Norfolk) (12 Jul 1990)

Mr John Garrett: ...beaches, only Mundesley meets the mandatory standards, and none meets the recommended guidelines. Wells, Mundesley arid Great Yarmouth North were never tested for salmonella or enteroviruses. Heacham and Hunstanton were tested five times, but the other beaches only twice. Great Yarmouth pier and South beaches failed all tests except one. The popular beaches at Caister, Hemsby, Corton arid...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Grey Areas (18 Mar 1968)

Mr Derek Page: ...right hon. Member for Leeds, North-East of the phrase "development centres". Grants for infrastructure are also imperative if balance is to be obtained, especially in areas such as Hunstanton and Heacham where the building of industry might not make particular sense.
