Rough Sleeping - Question (1 Feb 2018)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...we announced that recently. As I say, the advisory committee is meeting for the first time this morning and includes representatives of Crisis and Shelter, such as Polly Neate, and mayors such as Andy Burnham and Andy Street. That, too, will be vitally important. This is a complex problem. The figures in the noble Lord’s own Borough of Lewisham, for example, have gone up 30% over the...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Technology: Greater Manchester (31 Jan 2018)

Margot James: The Secretary of State, in his previous role as Minister for Digital, wrote to Mayor Andy Burnham on 22nd December 2017, responding to the Mayor’s request for more information on the government’s investment of £21m in Tech Nation. This funding involves setting up 10 new regional hubs, including in Manchester (which will serve as the base for the North West) to support and...

Taliban and is/Daesh Attacks: Afghanistan: Contaminated Blood Inquiry (29 Jan 2018)

Alison McGovern: ...question and to you, Mr Speaker, for granting it. Despite losing their son many years ago, my constituents Maureen and Les Dodd were only able to come and see me thanks to the intervention of Mr Andy Burnham, the former Member for Leigh. They said that their son, Graeme Jonathan Dodd, was “courageous, witty, funny and inspirational”. I know that the Minister will be thinking...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Jeremy Hunt: ...working in Downing Street at the time. In 2009, the shadow Health Secretary was Andrew Lansley. He refused to attack the Government, because it was an operational issue—in fact, the then Health Secretary, Andy Burnham, thanked him for his “measured tone”, which meant that “together we can give a reassuring message to the public”.—[Official Report, 12...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Higher Rates for Additional Dwellings (18 Dec 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...We see it perhaps most visibly in Greater Manchester—I live there and represent part of it—than in any other part of the country, and thank goodness that we in Greater Manchester have a Labour Mayor in Andy Burnham who is so determined to make a difference on this matter. If Labour was in power, we would set up a taskforce, led by the Prime Minister, to end this, and we would...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: ...need and want. In the Budget, the Chancellor made no mention of investment to improve the trans-Pennine rail route other than an announcement about improved wi-fi. As the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, said, at least we will be able to text and tweet our families and friends to let them know that we will be late. It is not just northern voices saying this: Derek Robbins,...

Terrorist Attacks - Statement (5 Dec 2017)

Earl Howe: ...such as local authorities on how best to manage the risk posed by closed subjects of interest in particular. We are considering undertaking multiagency pilots in a number of areas, including Greater Manchester, and I have already started discussing how to take this forward with Andy Burnham. Thirdly, there should be a new approach to managing domestic extremism, particularly extreme...

Report on Recent Terrorist Attacks (5 Dec 2017)

Diane Abbott: .... One of the most important recommendations in the report is the need for better sharing of intelligence. Will the Home Secretary say more about the multi-agency pilots, and about where her discussions with my colleague Andy Burnham, the former Member of Parliament for Leigh and the Mayor of Manchester, are going? I think that he would like to know that as well. The Home Secretary concedes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness (4 Dec 2017)

Liz McInnes: Is the Minister aware of the pioneering work being done in Greater Manchester to eradicate homelessness? Does he agree with Mayor Andy Burnham that the Government’s target of 2027 for the eradication of the problem is much too far away?

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Mark Harper: ...are grouped together for certain purposes, and we have seen that level of devolution in the west midlands and we are seeing considerable levels of devolution in Greater Manchester under the Mayor, Andy Burnham.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Mayors: Economic Growth (30 Oct 2017)

Kate Green: I am pleased that responsibility for the health and work programme has been devolved in Greater Manchester to the metropolitan Mayor, Andy Burnham, but may I ask the Minister whether the funding that has been made available—£52 million, including European structural fund money—will be continued beyond the period of the SF funding, with the Government making good that money?...

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Richard Graham: ...charities to look closely at Select Committee reports and endorse them where they find them useful. Inevitably, success has many fathers, so it is not surprising that the Labour party and the Scottish nationalists—I even heard a reference to Andy Burnham at one point—have wished to add their names to the credits at the end of this film. In my view, it does not matter who tries...

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)

Steve Brine: ...and they said that when they got calls from that part of England, they were about lung cancer, and that is no coincidence. The example I gave is a policy response from the Greater Manchester authority, led by Andy Burnham, formerly of this parish, who has already put in place a plan that will mean 115,000 fewer smokers by 2021. I pay tribute to Andy, with whom I worked a lot in the House...

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: ...with that. It is not only children who suffer from excessive use of social media; that can apply to all categories of people. Hull city of culture has, I think, been an unequivocal success. It was Andy Burnham who called for a city of culture, but I am pleased to say that it was this Government who saw Derry/Londonderry and now Hull achieve such huge success. There have been brilliant...

Adjournment (February, Easter, May Day and Whitsun): Devolution: Yorkshire (10 Oct 2017)

Jake Berry: ...just national but international businesses to the Tees Valley so that he can turn around SSI—Sahaviriya Steel Industries—steelworks. One mayor, one point of accountability driving forward his economy. Andy Burnham, who will be familiar to those on the Labour Benches, is the metro mayor for the great city of Manchester. In one of the most striking acts of leadership that I have...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Jeremy Hunt: ...serious the crisis was. He uses the phrase “Tory economics,” but the 2010 Labour manifesto, which he may well have had a hand in drafting, wanted to cut the NHS budget. The Health Secretary at the time, Andy Burnham, said that it would be “irresponsible” not to cut the NHS budget. In 2015, five years on from that terrible crisis, the Labour party wanted to put...

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Jo Platt: ...the strong Labour voices that it elects to this House. With that in mind, I would like to pay tribute to my predecessors Harold Boardman, Lawrence Cunliffe and, of course, my most recent predecessor, Andy Burnham. Andy served this House with commitment for 16 years. His work on the Hillsborough disaster and, more recently, the contaminated blood scandal, as well as his strength and passion...

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Jake Berry: cities and the Opposition spokesman also spoke about the importance of embedding infrastructure, including digital infrastructure, in our new towns for their plan for the future. On a recent visit to the new Metro Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, I was particularly interested that he is talking about a digital domesday book held locally to put on record the infrastructure as it is...

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Andrew Slaughter: ...the infections and the multiple infections in the first place, but, until recently the Government would not even mention the word “negligence”. Now, I am pleased to say, due in large part to what Andy Burnham has done, we are talking about criminality, but it has taken a long time to get there. On how the victims have been treated by the establishment, again, one could make...

Export Licensing: High Court Judgment: Contaminated Blood (10 Jul 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: ...of all six non-Government parties in the House of Commons—including the Democratic Unionist party—wrote a joint letter to the Prime Minister urging her to commit to a Hillsborough-style inquiry. Thirdly, the right hon. Andy Burnham yesterday reaffirmed his commitment to refer cases of alleged criminality to the police, and confirmed that he has an appointment with the police on...
