Did you mean scott man speaker:Scott Mann?
Scott Mann: What discussions his Department has had with the Treasury on increasing police funding and provision for rural areas in the 2019 spending review.
Scott Mann: I thank the Minister for that response. I receive a large number of emails and a lot of casework from constituents who are concerned about parity between rural and urban areas. We understand the challenges facing areas such as London, Manchester and Birmingham, but county lines operations mean that those challenges are also present in rural areas. I urge the Minister to speak to the Treasury...
Scott Mann: To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, what recent discussions the Church of England has had with the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on using church spires to facilitate the provision of broadband in rural areas.
Scott Mann: It is a pleasure to be coupled with my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray). I wish her the very best in her coupling this weekend—a proper Cornish wedding in Westminster. After discussions with the Church Commissioners officer, I am aware that there are no reasons why church spires cannot be used for boosting broadband signals in rural areas. I recently had a good...
Scott Mann: It is a pleasure to follow my south-west colleague, the hon. Member for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire), in this important debate. The National Autistic Society says that there are around 700,000 people on the autistic spectrum in the UK, which is more than one in 100. This means that autism is part of daily life for around 2.8 million people, when we include their families. I therefore...
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether he has made an assessment of the effect of the timetable for Ofgem's Targeted Charging review on (a) investment and (b) innovation in (i) onsite flexible generation and (ii) a future flexible energy system.
Scott Mann: What is the Department doing to support the people of Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi after the recent cyclone?
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many people have been given a custodial sentence for death by careless driving; and what is the average length of term for those sentences in each of the last five years.
Scott Mann: Meur ras, Mr Speaker. Gool Peran lowen—happy St Piran’s day—and Kernow bys vyken! The announcement yesterday on the stronger towns fund did not include any areas from Cornwall, yet Cornwall has always scored very highly on social deprivation and funding. I know that the coastal communities fund has been a help, but what assurance can I have from the Treasury that it will support towns...
Scott Mann: The Chancellor briefly mentioned the spring statement. Can he update the House on his plans for the spring statement on 13 March?
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps his Department will take to tackle the problem of illegal landing of undersized bass; and for what reason the Cornwall Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority might face a legal challenge if they prohibited gill net meshes from 89 mm to 109 mm in order to stop this practice.
Scott Mann: The cost of skip hire in Cornwall is disproportionately higher than in many other places around the country. The reason for that is that we do not have an aggregates recycling plant. Will the Department look at that and see whether there is anything we can do in Cornwall to reduce the burden on builders?
Scott Mann: What progress his Department has made on its procurement exercise for the construction of new warships in the UK.
Scott Mann: I thank the Minister for that response. Following the Secretary of State’s recent successful visit to Plymouth, he will know of the south-west’s military shipbuilding capabilities. May I suggest that Plymouth would make a fantastic base for the littoral strike group vessels?
Scott Mann: rose—
Scott Mann: Will the Leader of the House congratulate the Polzeath marine conservation group on the installation of two water fountains on two of our most prolific beaches in north Cornwall? Given the increased use of reusable bottles, would it be possible to have a debate about the need for more water fountains around the UK?
Scott Mann: Cornwall Council has made the Camelford bypass its No. 1 priority in the context of the major road network. Will the Minister update us on the progress of the network?
Scott Mann: What steps her Department is taking to promote the Government's trade for development programme.
Scott Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what discussions his Department has had with the ICAO on the potential for banning single-engine helicopters for commercial flights.
Scott Mann: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for leading the debate, and furnishing us with his knowledge about helicopters. A recent International Civil Aviation Organisation report talked about the potential ban on single-engine helicopters for commercial flights, despite engine failure being responsible for only one of 19 fatal incidents in the last 10 years. Constituents have written to me saying...
