Holiday sickness scams

I certainly agree with concerns about the apparent increase in holiday sickness claims, and I know that the Government does as well. It recognises that where payments are made based on fraudulent statements there are wider implications for tour operators, such as Thomas Cook, and the holiday industry more generally and it is committed to

Palestinian health and dignity

I certainly appreciate concerns which have been raised about the health of many Palestinian people. There will ultimately be no relief for the people in Gaza, who are suffering so terribly, until there is a political solution. I firmly believe that the international community must redouble its efforts to support a comprehensive peace agreement that delivers

Public sector pay

I greatly value the important work that nurses, doctors, police officers, firefighters, teachers and other public servants do in delivering essential public services. Public sector pay is set by independent pay review bodies, but I am in favour of increasing it. I would hope that the Government will respond favourably to easing pay restrictions at

The environment

The British countryside is some of the most beautiful in the world, so I am delighted that Ministers are committed to safeguarding our vibrant natural environment. Until we leave the European Union, the existing arrangements remain in place. I am particularly pleased that the Treasury has confirmed that any structural fund projects, including agri-environment schemes,

Asylum for torture survivors

Granting protection to those who genuinely need it and refusing those who do not, in as efficient, sensitive and effective a way as possible, is crucial. I have been assured that all members of staff who make asylum decisions receive a comprehensive level of training. This includes a dedicated five-week Foundation Training Programme that features

Ivory trade

I am very concerned about the effect of illegal poaching and ivory trafficking on the long-term prospects for the survival of the elephant, and I know that my ministerial colleagues share this concern. Just how seriously the Government takes this issue was demonstrated when it held the London Conference on Wildlife Trafficking. Over 40 countries

EU citizens in the UK

It goes without saying that EU nationals make an invaluable contribution to our economy, our society and our daily lives, especially in our constituency of Boston and Skegness. There will be no immediate change to their status in the UK. The discussions that the Government has with the European Union to agree the arrangements for

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt MP has committed in the Commons to look into the performance of the East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS), after Matt Warman MP and other Lincolnshire MPs raised serious concerns in Parliament. Citing waiting times for ambulances to arrive and the fact that police officers have had to step in to assist

Fur trade

I support the highest standards of animal welfare so I am pleased to note that the importation of fur products is already tightly regulated. It is currently illegal to import furs derived from cats or dogs, or products made from them; in addition the fur and skin of endangered animals or fish cannot be imported without a

Further Education

Further education is key to ensuring our workforce is equipped with the skills our economy needs, and I very much support the excellent work of Boston College in our area. The Government wants employers to take a leading role in establishing a post-16 skills system that is responsive to local economic priorities, financially resilient and

Mobile spectrum

I certainly agree that we need to do all we can to ensure that those in our constituency, and indeed across the country, have high quality mobile signal and decent coverage, from a range of operators. As part of a debate I’ll be leading on the universal service obligation, it’s an issue I shall be
