Scott Mann: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will provide more funding for rural housing in the forthcoming spending review.
Scott Mann: One of the best ways in which the Department could recognise Cornish minority status is to drop the ludicrous suggestion of having a Cornwall-Devon boundary review. Will the Minister commit to giving the Cornish the same rights as the Welsh and the Scots?
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what plans the Government has to reopen the Okehampton to Exeter train route.
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of a washing machine scrappage scheme.
Scott Mann: I welcome the Secretary of State to her place. The Army is below its target strength in part because of the difficulties with and the inefficiency in Capita’s administration. What steps is the Department taking to make the joining process for new recruits easier?
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department taking to enable the use of digital technology to increase access to healthcare for people in rural communities.
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether his Department has plans to reopen train lines in North Cornwall.
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps his Department is taking to allocate additional funding to vocational training in order to improve social mobility in North Cornwall.
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what steps his Department is taking to reduce the level of paperwork required for the Community Infrastructure Levy.
Scott Mann: Cornwall has been a net beneficiary of objective 1 and convergence funding, as we have heard from other Members, for the past 20 years. If we step away from the coastal towns that many people visit on holiday, we find pockets of rural deprivation that successive Governments have found difficult to identify. Although the moneys that have flowed into Cornwall have been welcome, there have been...
Scott Mann: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for securing this debate. Does he acknowledge that it is not just the north that suffers this problem? Some areas in the south-west have exactly the same difficulty. Does he agree that the Treasury should have other mechanisms, rather than looking at just the economic benefits? Perhaps it could look at the social benefits of putting money into areas such as...
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what steps he is taking to ensure that areas such as North Cornwall get their fair share of Creative Industries funding after a previous unsuccessful bid.
Scott Mann: Many of my constituents still access some form of off-grid energy. While the Department looks to introduce a cleaner form of energy, will it also look at the cost impact of energy? Many of these people are also in fuel poverty and would like not only a clean form of energy, but a cheap one.
Scott Mann: Meur ras, Madam Deputy Speaker. It is a pleasure to see you in the Chair today. Investment in education is one of my priorities for North Cornwall and of special interest to me personally as a champion of social mobility. North Cornwall is a prime example of an area that has been historically overlooked compared with urban areas by Governments of all colours over the past 50 years, to the...
Scott Mann: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Rural deprivation is very much harder to differentiate. Urban deprivation tends to be easier to identify. Rural deprivation definitely exists and should be recognised in the funding formula. Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places to raise a child. It is safe and has a uniquely beautiful landscape. Children are really lucky to grow up there. However, I...
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, if he will make an assessment of whether the UK would have to have a trade deal with China in the event it joined NAFTA.
Scott Mann: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment his Department has made of the potential effect on elderly people of decreased access to hard currency.
Scott Mann: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for bringing this debate and taking my intervention. Does he agree that many residents in my constituency want proper labelling—as has been mentioned—so that they can make a conscious choice about how their animals are killed? I am a great believer in labelling, and I hope that the Minister is listening. We should push for better labelling for slaughtered...
Scott Mann: Will the Minister give way?
Scott Mann: I am grateful. If the Minister looks around the Chamber, she will see many colleagues who represent areas that have not benefited from globalisation. As we move into a skills-based economy, may I urge her, on behalf of the people of Cornwall, to strengthen every sinew when she goes to the Treasury to argue for this money? We are desperate for these skills.
