Bill Presented: The Economy (11 Dec 2012)

Chris Kelly: ...successful large employer in the private sector started off as a small start-up. Even JCB, which was started by the inspirational J.C. Bamford and which I have had the privilege of visiting in Rocester, was once a small enterprise in a small shed. I refer the House to my declaration in the register relating to the last election. This Government are cutting red tape and making it easier for...

Single Payment Scheme (8 Jun 2011)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...people on the land, and I welcome its application to establish a land-based academy at Rodbaston in my constituency, along the lines of the excellent JCB academy for technical subjects in nearby Rocester. Last year, UK food and non-alcoholic drink exports topped £10 billion for the first time. If ever we needed a reminder of the importance of Ireland to our economy, it lies in the fact...

Burton upon Trent County Court (27 Jul 2010)

Andrew Griffiths: go into Burton town to get a train or bus to travel onwards. As for constituents who live in areas such as Marchington, which is one of the larger villages in the middle of my constituency, or Rocester, the home of JCB, no combination of trains and buses can get them to Stafford county court in time for a 9 o'clock meeting. I accept that Derby county court is more convenient for some of...

Tackling Poverty in the UK (10 Jun 2010)

Andrew Griffiths: ...I have seen on all the posters around the town?" "Yes," I replied, rather proudly. She looked at me and said, "It is a very flattering photograph." [Laughter.] The constituency also contains Rocester, home of the world-famous JCB, the yellow digger, which is a British icon and a champion of the engineering industry. I applaud the work that is being done in the JCB academy to try to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Work and Welfare (5 Nov 2008)

Janet Dean: ...spiral that we experienced in the 1980s. One of the first companies to be hit by the global downturn, particularly the downturn in the construction industry, has been JCB, whose headquarters is at Rocester, in my constituency. JCB's UK work force, who are mainly based in Staffordshire, had increased by 44 per cent., from 3,900 to 5,700, between December 2005 and December 2007. Sadly, JCB...

Royal Assent (20 Jul 2000)

Janet Dean: ...message over that our schools funding is improving, and that our schools are feeling the benefit of the increased spending, both revenue and capital. On a recent visit to Ryecroft middle school in Rocester in my constituency, I heard from the head teacher of the improvements that have taken place. These included complete roof replacement with new deal funding, a new double mobile classroom...

Adjournment (Summer) (30 Jul 1997)

Janet Dean: ...problems; the six most northerly parishes are part of the SRB 5 area, and the BSE crisis caused much distress to many of my constituents. One of the greatest success stories is the JCB factory at Rocester. It is set in superb grounds, with lakes, statues and a vast complex of buildings that blend in with the countryside around them. The company is world renowned and has become a symbol of...

Children's Homes (Staffordshire) (3 Jun 1991)

Mr Ivan Lawrence: Will my hon. Friend confirm that no criticism has been made of staff at the admirable Riverside community home at Rocester, in my constituency? Will she also confirm that, although we hear strong speeches about how much Labour cares, Labour-controlled Staffordshire county council steadfastly refused to increase spending to give the priority necessary for child care in Staffordshire, with the...

STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS, &c.: Maternity Services (Derbyshire) (7 Nov 1988)

Mr Ivan Lawrence: ...that home, with such an excellent reputation, serves many of my constituents. They have written to me from Ramsho rn, Mayfield, Uttoxeter, Leigh, Bramshall, Ellastone, M.archington, Denstone and Rocester. The South-East Staffordshire community health council has received over 100 letters from members of the general public in my constituency, all opposing the closure. It has received...
