Education: School Places (24 Jun 2019)

David Morris: Does my right hon. Friend agree that continual investment in schools in Morecambe and Lunesdale has directly resulted in improvements in education standards?

Education: Topical Questions (24 Jun 2019)

David Morris: I thank my right hon. Friend for allocating £3 million for the essential repairs at Morecambe Bay Academy. What steps are being taken to ensure that building maintenance does not delay school transfers from academies when the school is rated inadequate by Ofsted?

Eden Project: Morecambe and the North-West (6 Jun 2019)

David Morris: As I was saying, following the Treasury approval of £100,000 in the autumn Budget in 2018, an additional investment of £40 million to £60 million is needed. This has been sought and is closely linked to the wider industrial strategy of the region—not just Morecambe, but the whole north-west region. Eden north will be a catalyst to drive the regeneration of Morecambe and transform the...

Eden Project: Morecambe and the North-West (6 Jun 2019)

David Morris: That is a lovely thought and I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention.

Eden Project: Morecambe and the North-West (6 Jun 2019)

David Morris: I cannot say, but we will put the plans forward to Eden for my hon. Friend. Eden north is compatible with, directly supports and is coherent with the recommendations made by the House of Lords Select Committee on Regenerating Seaside Towns and Communities, which was published on 4 April 2019 and so is extremely recent. Eden will be a high-quality, year-round attraction and wet-weather...

Eden Project: Morecambe and the North-West (6 Jun 2019)

David Morris: He was young when he swam there.

Eden Project: Morecambe and the North-West (6 Jun 2019)

David Morris: He is still a young man at heart; I know him very well and he is my good friend. Importantly, market analysis has identified a catchment of 10.6 million people within two hours, as I have alluded to. This will support a visitor attraction where 760,000 people go to the project annually, with consequent direct and indirect economic benefits. It is a financially sustainable revenue-generating...

Eden Project: Morecambe and the North-West (6 Jun 2019)

David Morris: I will give a very condensed history of my beautiful Morecambe and Lunesdale seat, and particularly of Morecambe itself. According to the excellent book, “The Lost Resort?” by Roger Bingham, Morecambe gets its name from the Vikings—it means “pleasant view” or “pleasant bay.” Morecambe has seen its fortunes ebb and flow over the past 100 years. It is fair to say that Morecambe...

Voter Id Pilots (10 Apr 2019)

David Morris: At the last general election, the Labour candidate in Morecambe and Lunesdale lived in Blackpool and registered herself from her parents’ front room in Morecambe. Her husband had actually been the Labour party manager for the hon. Member for Lancaster and Fleetwood (Cat Smith) in the previous election. Is it not time that we had voter ID in Lancaster?

Hong Kong: Pro-Democracy Activists (10 Apr 2019)

David Morris: As someone who grew up in Hong Kong, I am concerned about the progression of extradition that may occur to these people who are currently seeking some kind of appeal. What can the Foreign Office do to stop any extradition from Hong Kong to China?

Libya (8 Apr 2019)

David Morris: There are various factions in Libya, including the Government of national accord and the Libyan national army. Whoever forms the next Government after this skirmish, will my right hon. Friend ensure that the perpetrators of the bombing in Manchester will be brought to justice? As yet, the internationally recognised Government have not supplied that extradition.

Business of the House (28 Mar 2019)

David Morris: The Eden Project would like to come to Morecambe. At this moment in time, £1.1 million has been raised for the feasibility study and the Chancellor has given £100,000 straight to the Eden Project from the Treasury. Will my right hon. Friend help me to secure a debate on the Floor of the House about the benefits of Eden North, the Eden Project in Morecambe?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Officer Safety (12 Mar 2019)

David Morris: I thank my hon. Friend for that good answer. The hard-working staff at HMP Lancaster Farms are doing a very good job in this respect and I invite my hon. Friend to come to Lancaster Farms whenever he can.

Communities: Charities and Volunteers (13 Feb 2019)

David Morris: Does the Minister agree that charities should remain autonomous and should not be interfered with politically? I am greatly concerned about a charity in Morecambe that is undergoing that process at this moment.

David Morris: Does my hon. Friend agree that every Labour Government in history have left the country in bankruptcy?

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

David Morris: On that point, will the Prime Minister give way?

Business of the House (Today): No Confidence in Her Majesty’s Government (16 Jan 2019)

David Morris: Does the Prime Minister agree that if the Leader of the Opposition himself wrote on a note exactly what he wanted, passed it to the Prime Minister and she adopted it, he would still vote against it?

Points of Order (19 Dec 2018)

David Morris: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I have the utmost respect for your position and the Chair. If you look at what has been put forward in evidence and you come back with a judgment, would you please call the Leader of the Opposition back to the Chamber so that we can hear the full evidence of what has been put forward?

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

David Morris: I have been sitting here all through this afternoon’s debate listening to colleagues on both sides of the House. I welcome the tone of this debate, which has been very mature and stable, especially early on when the shadow Chancellor was speaking. I do not see eye to eye with him at all times, but there was quite a lot we did see eye to eye on. We are working to find a way forward on this...
