Plastic shopping bags

I support the recent introduction of a compulsory 5p charge for single use plastic bags. I think this is a step forward that will make people think twice before throwing bags away, helping protect the environment. I also think that using paper or biodegradable alternatives to plastic packaging is preferable, and I hope that the adoption of

Land Registry

I believe that, where the Government can help achieve its goals of a strong economy by not spending more than we can afford and reducing the national debt through selling public sector assets, without detriment to delivering public services, it makes sense to do so. That said, however, I do think this debate in this

Cycling and walking

I know that the previous Coalition Government did good work to support walking and cycling. Spending on cycling more than doubled between 2010 and 2015, which included giving eight UK cities access to £94 million of grants to help them improve their cycling infrastructure. This means that spending per head on cycling in England has

E-cigarettes

I ecognise that e-cigarettes help some smokers to quit. Evidence indicates that they are considerably less harmful to health than cigarettes. At the same time, it is essential that we do not encourage smoking and continue to protect children from the effects of nicotine. The rules set out in the revised Tobacco Products Directive (TPD),

Fifth Carbon Budget

I completely agree that climate change is one of the most serious long-term economic and environmental threats that this country faces. I was proud of the leadership that Britain displayed during the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris last year, and can assure you that that not only will Britain back up the commitments we

Fireworks

I  certainly understand how fireworks displays can bother animals. As an owner of two (rather recalcitrant) horses ourselves, both my wife and I are hugely in favour of encouraging official, local displays, rather than a myriad of smaller displays in gardens. While many people enjoy their use on special occasions, I know that others do

Holidays during school term time

I do appreciate that parents can find it difficult to have holidays with their children during school holidays, and also that the cost of going away can be higher at this time. I also recognise that many people in our area are seasonal workers, which can affect when they can take their family away. However,

Housing and the green belt

I strongly believe that our fields, woodlands and countryside should be protected against excessive development. These are special areas of our country that we have a right to enjoy and pass on to future generations. At the same, I recognise that more homes need to be delivered to meet the demands of our increasing population.

Cannabis for medicinal use

Cannabis in its raw form is not recognised as having any medicinal purposes. The licensing regime for medicines is administered by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which issues licences for medicines in the UK which have been tested for their safety, quality and efficacy. However, a medicine derived from the cannabis plant,

BREXIT WILL MAKE DEPORTING FOREIGN CRIMINALS HARDER, HOME SECRETARY TELLS MATT WARMAN MP

Leaving the EU could make it more difficult to deport foreign criminals from the UK, the Home Secretary has warned Boston and Skegness MP Matt Warman. During a Parliamentary Question about the removal of foreign national offenders, Matt highlighted to the Home Secretary once again that Boston has seen a higher than usual amount of

Refugee children

The Government needs to do more to respond to the continuing migration crisis and how best it can support the most vulnerable people affected by this appalling situation and I am glad that it is now taking further action. This includes the establishment of a new resettlement scheme focused on the children at risk in
