Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Evans: ..., the landlord of those pubs, is with us today and has lobbied me about the importance of cutting the beer duty. There is the White Bull at Alston, the White Bull at Gisburn and the Alston Arms at Longridge. I have eaten and drunk in all three of those pubs at some stage. Alex told me about all the charities that they support, from the Brittle Bone Society to the Air Ambulance, to...

Leaving the Eu: Security, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice: Flooding: Ribble Valley (18 Jan 2017)

Nigel Evans: the right off the motorway junction was flooded. I had to turn around and then use my local knowledge to work out another route through Preston, which was quite extensive. First I dropped into Longridge, where there was an emergency centre in one of the village halls. I spoke to four people there. Nobody had reported there, because it is several miles away from Whalley, and I think it...

School Transport — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Jun 2015)

Nigel Evans: .... No, they will not do that, but they expect parents to dip into their own taxed income to pay £500 a child, and that cannot be right. One area where two schools back on to one another is Longridge. There is Longridge high school and the Catholic school St Cecilia’s just behind. I have 30-odd wonderful, lovely villages. If parents want their child to be educated in Longridge, which is...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Dairy Industry (4 Feb 2015)

Nigel Evans: ...the dairy industry has done for my area. The Ribble Valley food trail is now firmly a part of why visitors come to the area, and those visitors keep small villages such as Rimington, Clitheroe, Longridge, Lostock Hall, Chipping, Waddington and Mitton alive. The recent investment in local businesses runs to millions of pounds. The restaurants and hotels in the James’s Places group are...

Petition — Impact of New Housing in Longridge, Clitheroe and Whalley (4 Nov 2014)

There has been a deluge of planning applications to build thousands of houses in my area, and in neighbouring areas under Preston council control but affecting Longridge in the Ribble Valley. Whalley has had several hundred houses foisted upon it on appeal. Clitheroe...

Scottish Parliament: Talladh-a-Bheithe Wind Farm (Objections) (30 Sep 2014)

Neil Findlay: highlight the concerns of my constituents about their landscape, which is very different from that around Loch Rannoch. For the people of villages such as West Calder, Kirknewton, Addiewell, Longridge and Fauldhouse, their landscape is just as cherished. It is an insult, whether it comes from planners or whoever, to infer that their natural heritage has any less value than any other...

Child Benefit Entitlement (Disqualification of Non-UK EU Nationals): Backbench Business — Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2014)

Nigel Evans: ...though hundreds have already been built in nearby Calderstones. I congratulate Councillors Terry Hill and Joyce Holgate on their representation in that area. The final area that I will mention is Longridge, although a number of other villages have accepted new houses, some through appeal. There are applications for a total of 1,700 houses over five sites in Longridge, which is a relatively...

[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — Backbench business — Planning and Housing Supply (24 Oct 2013)

Bob Russell: 15 miles from Colchester, and the council is talking about a development of 3,000 houses adjacent to the borough boundary of Colchester. It will double the urban estates of Greenstead and Longridge Park. It will just be an urban sprawl going eastwards. The local authority—Tendring—should build its houses where its people want them. As for the idea that people living on this huge...

British Pubs (23 Feb 2010)

Nigel Evans: ...that offers very good food and excellent real ales from the region. Steve is a CAMRA member, and knows his beer and how look after it. As a case study, I went to a very different pub in the town of Longridge, which serves pies for locals-that service is aimed at football fans-but relies very much on wet sales. Irene Nuttall is the landlady, but prefers to be called the landlord, and she is...

Mary Mulligan: ...mining in the south of West Lothian, to ensure that the coal is transported to Longannet power station by rail, rather than on numerous heavy-tonnage lorries through places such as Whitburn and Longridge in my constituency?

Legislative Reform: Local and Regional News (19 Mar 2009)

Nigel Evans: ...cherish these newspapers, and we must see what we can do to give them some support. In my patch, we have the Lancashire Evening Telegraph and the Lancashire Evening Post, and the weeklies, The Longridge News and the Clitheroe Advertiser and Times. They have internet sections as well, and they must do that for the future; they must see the internet not as a problem that will put them...

Prayers: Statutory Redundancy Pay (Amendment) Bill (13 Mar 2009)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...on the Committee. I know that she is aware of the importance of keeping people in employment, and that she is very good at putting a strong case. We stood shoulder to shoulder at the time of the Longridge redundancies, thinking of ways in which we could help people. Well, the Bill aims to offer help in exactly the same way, and I hope that the hon. Lady will accept that it is being...

Prayers: Autism Bill (27 Feb 2009)

Nigel Evans: Hillside school in Longridge in my constituency is a school for children with autism. It received an excellent Ofsted report in 2007. I praise the then headmaster, Geoff Fitzpatrick, and the new headmistress, Alison Foster, for the tremendous work that they have done. The headmistress has said that part of the problem is that all the good work being done in the school is lost when the...

Schools (Berwick-upon-Tweed) (23 Oct 2007)

Alan Beith: no parental choice in Berwick, and there is no prospect of parental choice. The only parental choice is for those who can afford to send their children to the one private school in the area, Longridge Towers. There is no parental choice within the state sector because the nearest school to which parents are allowed to send their child is in Alnwick, 30 miles away. I have just explained...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: Acute Hospital Services (21 Feb 2007)

Nigel Evans: localism, and that services should be as close as possible to where the public are. I have previously raised the reconfiguration of the primary care trusts in the Chamber. Although people in Longridge were receiving all their services in Preston, all of a sudden they were asked to get a chunk of their secondary provision in east Lancashire, although they do not live anywhere near there....

Nigel Evans: I am grateful for that response, and I am grateful to Lord Warner for meeting two Longridge GPs and Councillor David Smith from Longridge last night, who was speaking up on behalf of the people of Longridge.
