Written Answers — HM Treasury: Coinage (27 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: The process of repatriation of the old £1 coins is still ongoing. Coins are being returned to banks by individuals and businesses every day.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: The Government are working to continue their progress on the superfast broadband roll-out. We expect to reach 95% by the end of this year.

The progress will be maintained through Government expenditure in that programme and in the digital infrastructure investment fund.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: I most certainly will continue to work on that. My hon. Friend has consistently spoken up on behalf of entrepreneurs and enterprise since he arrived in this House. The Government’s intention to pursue our broadband investment, whether it is superfast or full fibre, is right at the heart of our efforts to improve productivity.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Digital Infrastructure (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: The hon. Gentleman seems to have forgotten the announcement of the national productivity investment fund—a £23 billion pot of money for investment in infrastructure, including digital infrastructure, across the country. I have already mentioned the £400 million digital infrastructure investment fund and the £740 million for full-fibre broadband and 5G. We are already...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Transport Infrastructure: Cheshire (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: I will take that as a Budget representation. The basic point is that we are clearly very ambitious to unlock, through transport investment, both residential and commercial opportunity. That has been a feature of Government policies over the past few years, and I am sure that it will continue to be.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Transport Infrastructure: Cheshire (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: The hon. Gentleman’s assessment is simply mistaken: Government investment is broadly equal across the different regions of our country. I highlight to him that the central Government investment going into the north during this spending period is £13 billion, which is a record in British history.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (24 Oct 2017)

Andrew Jones: I will most certainly join my hon. Friend in both celebrating the project and urging everybody working on it to be as ambitious as possible. In terms of support, since 2010, my hon. Friend’s area has benefited from more than £300 million in grants to support cutting-edge innovation in the west midlands through Innovate UK. The Government welcome private investment in innovative and...
