Campaign Responses

Water Industry: Nationalisation and EDM 1761

Thank you for contacting me about the water industry and EDM 1761.

As a Government Whip I do not, by convention, sign any Early Day Motions, as doing so is likely to breach the Ministerial Code’s rules on collective responsibility. However, I can comment on the points you raise.

Climate Change

Thank you for contacting me about climate change.

Concern about climate change is growing to unprecedented levels and I can assure you that I recognise the importance and urgency of public debate on this issue. 

Bus Services

Thank you for contacting me about local bus services.

Back to 60: Women's Pension Age Changes

Thank you for contacting me about changes to the State Pension age.

We are of course awaiting the outcome of the High Court hearing. In the meantime, I have set out the Government's position below.

No Confidence Vote

Thank you for contacting me about a possible vote of confidence in the Government.

I have no intention of voting against the Government in a confidence motion and I fully support the work of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet.
