[Steve McCabe in the Chair] — Term-time Leave (26 Oct 2015)

Scott Mann: I welcome you to the Chair, Mr McCabe, and I thank my Cornish colleague, my hon. Friend the Member for St Austell and Newquay (Steve Double), for spearheading this debate. He has been instrumental in making the public aware of today’s debate and the general debate in wider circles about allowing children to be taken out of school to go on holiday. As an MP for a key tourist destination, I...

[Steve McCabe in the Chair] — Term-time Leave (26 Oct 2015)

Scott Mann: I would be flexible on that. We simply need to give parents the ability to take their children out of school at some time during those years. I am not a wealthy man. I cannot afford to take my child away on holiday year after year. If we can give people the ability to save up for holidays and have a week or a couple of weeks in the sun, they will benefit from that. If a child has been out of...

Bill Presented — Sugar in Food and Drinks (Targets, Labelling and Advertising) Bill: Clause 5 — Functions (21 Oct 2015)

Scott Mann: It is my view that there are no problems with the Bill. I championed it last week because I believed the Government were right to give more powers to councils, which can better address the issues in their areas. Cornwall does not have an elected mayor, but it does have a rather unique sense of identity and a desire to get its traditional low-wage economy functioning as a high-wage, high-skill...

Perinatal Mental Illness (NHS Family Services): Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [Lords] (14 Oct 2015)

Scott Mann: On 16 July this year, an historic devolution deal for Cornwall was signed off by my right hon.

As the first rural authority to be granted devolution, Cornwall has been given the...

Perinatal Mental Illness (NHS Family Services): Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [Lords] (14 Oct 2015)

Scott Mann: That was not the case, no. The powers were devolved to Cornwall Council, to the local enterprise partnership and to the business community. I welcome the prospect of every local authority in the UK having the same powers that Cornwall now has. Local MPs, local councils and local business leaders will of course know what is best for their areas. It is my hope that this deal will empower local...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Rural Broadband (10 Sep 2015)

Scott Mann: I thank my right hon. Friend for giving way. Many businesses are looking to relocate to rural areas, which presents us with a big problem. Those businesses do not want to be confined to industrial estates; many looking to relocate to my constituency of North Cornwall are food based and want to have access to broadband on farms. What can be done about that?

Scott Mann: May I welcome the recent announcement in the Budget that this Government are pledging an extra £8 billion for the NHS in England?

Friend provide me with an update regarding the progress of its bid?

Scott Mann: With the Ashes series beginning and the sun out, many of our local cricket clubs in Cornwall are once again opening their doors for the summer season. Does my right hon. Friend agree that we need to make it easier for sports clubs to access grant funding and planning consent to improve facilities for our young cricketers in Cornwall to give them the opportunity to one day pull on the three...

South-West England (Long-Term Economic Plan) (8 Jul 2015)

Scott Mann: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the cost of delivering services in rural areas is much higher than in urban areas, and in pupil funding there is a huge disparity, with many rural schools getting significantly less than urban schools—half as much in some instances? That is not good enough for our rural schools.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Tunisia, and European Council (29 Jun 2015)

Scott Mann: Yesterday, I learned that two of my constituents had suffered in this callous attack. Cheryl Mellor and her husband, Stephen, from Bodmin in North Cornwall, went to Tunisia for a holiday, but only Mrs Mellor will be returning. I was moved to tears after reading her account of Friday’s tragic events in the local press. Stephen was gunned down next to his wife, trying to protect her as they...

Business of the House: Royal Bank of Scotland (11 Jun 2015)
