News From Anna Soubry MP, 11 February 2017

jan1Anna Soubry writes: In line with most schools, Parliament has risen for half- term. I am taking the opportunity to visit a refugee camp in Jordan with a fellow MP, organised by Oxfam, so I will be away for about 4 days. I will share my experiences with you.
There is a great deal to report on this week so please read on.
As ever,
Anna

Sir Peter Mansfield – a tribute
fb1Not long after being selected to stand as your MP, I was in Beeston chatting to people. I stopped a couple walking arm in arm to ask a few questions “You should know who he is!” said the woman tugging at the mans arm “He’s Sir Peter Mansfield! He invented MRI – you know what that is don’t you?” I was somewhat taken back by this rather fierce, immensely proud woman who fb2added “and I’m Jean”.
Over the subsequent years, I would see Sir Peter and Lady Mansfield at various events, mainly Conservative party get togethers at Beeston Fields Golf Club near to their home. Sir Peter was a delightful and gentle man, though never shy in sharing his views with me. I became very fond of Peter and Jean. Sir Peter has been unwell for some time and my thoughts are with Jean, their children and grandchildren.

Jean Mansfield has more right than most to be so proud of her husbands achievements. Sir Peter was a remarkable physicist who was honoured with a Nobel prize for his pioneering work on MRI at Nottingham University. The scanners are now in almost every hospital in the world and have revolutionised the detection, diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease. Sir Peter’s family, his many colleagues, friends and neighbours pay tribute to his outstanding contribution to the lives of millions of people and we are all truly grateful.

“No Minister” – HS2 plans for Trowell are unacceptable

Minister Andrew Jones visited Trowell Park as part of his visit on Thursday.

Minister Andrew Jones visited Trowell Park as part of his visit on Thursday.

HS2 Minister Andrew Jones, visited Trowell on Thursday. I snatched 45 minutes with Andrew and officials from HS2 during his whistle stop tour of the East Midlands. I showed Andrew the impact a 60 foot high viaduct will have on the village and explained why I was opposed to it. I took the Minister to Trowell Park, the centre of Trowell and back to Beeston via Trowell Moor.

There are two important aspects to HS2’s plans for the route through Trowell. The track will be on a viaduct 15 metres (45 feet) above ground level – with additional height to accommodate overhead lines of about 5 metres (15 feet). There is no doubt that the reasoning for the viaduct is valid – as residents know the land falls and rises and the viaduct appears to solve the problem. However, I have told Andrew and HS2 that their current plans for a viaduct have such a profound and adverse impact on the village that they must look at alternatives to delivering the route.
The second matter is that people living along the route in Trowell will not be compensated; again I have made my opposition clear.
Every household in Trowell will receive another letter from me in the next week with more details on the two consultations taking place. one is on the compensation, the other concerns the route. It is imperative everyone makes their views known in the two consultations which end on March 9th.

Earlier, I joined a meeting at Strelley Hall with the owners and HS2. The box – cut and cover – tunnel seems a good scheme and HS2 were clear that the route can indeed be moved further away from the village. My concern is the impact the construction will have on the village.

We are still in the early stages of planning for HS2. There will be further visits from Ministers and public meetings. At the moment it is important everyone takes part in the consultation. Please call or email my office for more details or if you have any questions or requests for more information.

fb4MP’s vote overwhelmingly to start Brexit process
I voted with the overwhelming majority of MP’s to give the Prime Minister the power to begin our withdrawal from the EU.
As you will know I believe our country’s interests are best served as a member of the European Union, however I always said I would respect and honour the result. I carried out that promise, with a heavy heart, and voted for the Bill which has progressed through Parliament in the last two weeks. I spoke in the main debate last week and again this week when I backed an amendment to the Bill proposed by the Nottingham Labour MP, Chris Leslie.

<< Why I voted to start the process of leaving the EU (at 2.41pm) >>
Chris Leslie’s amendment to the Bill sought to give Parliament a say and vote on any deal we reach with the EU, and also in the event of us failing to reach a deal.
I voted for the amendment which was opposed by the Government. I obviously thought long and hard before voting against the Government and explained much of my reasoning in my speech. It now turns out that the Prime Minister had pretty much agreed with the spirit of the amendment – that Parliament would have a vote – deal or no deal. As to why her wishes didn’t reach the Minister in the debate is a mixture of cock-up and conspiracy I fear! In any event the amendment was rejected.
<< Why I voted for Parliament to be sovereign – deal or no deal (just after 5.00pm) >>
I very much trust the word of the Prime Minister, Theresa May. I have no doubt she understands why EU citizens living in Britain must be allowed to stay after we have left the EU. I believe the PM understands the need to settle this matter as soon as possible especially as the uncertainty has badly affected a number of EU citizens. The Home Secretary has given assurances as well. On the basis this matter will be a priority and knowing that Parliament can and no doubt will resolve it if the Government doesn’t, I decided not to back an amendment to enshrine the rights of EU citizens in the Bill.

Last week I spoke in a debate on the USA President’s ban on people from 7 mainly Muslim countries. President Trump has been challenged in the USA courts on the grounds it is unconstitutional. I don’t know if it is or not – I do believe it is immoral, offensive and wholly unjustified.

Finally, I asked a question about the need to improve access to money for small and medium builders. Broxtowe Borough Council is trying to protect our Green Belt land by encouraging small developments on brown field sites but access to money is a problem for many builders.
<< Donald Trump’s travel ban and tribute to Broxtowe’s work for Syrian refugees (at 7.13pm) >>
<< How the Government can help build more homes r>>

School funding consultation
The Government is changing the funding formula for schools. It would mean some schools in the constituency would receive more money but others would receive less. Whilst I welcome a fairer scheme I don’t think schools should receive less money! Surprisingly I have not had any representations from the Head teachers of any of our schools. I have therefore written to them all asking them to share their views with me and take part in the consultation.

Banks Road parking needs sorting!
fb5Bank Road Infants will see a cut in funding which will add to the woes of Head teacher, Carole Clemens. However, Carole is particularly fed up with the unacceptable parking by parents at drop off and pick up times. Despite her best efforts a minority of parents are still parking dangerously. I’ve agreed to contact the local police and County Council to sort out the problem once and for all.

 

 

Attenborough crossings update
There was an excellent turnout at the public event hosted by Network Rail in Attenborough

Network Rail have had over 600 submissions from users of the Attenborough crossings - which is a record! A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed and campaigned to save the crossings.

Network Rail have had over 600 submissions from users of the Attenborough crossings – which is a record! A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed and campaigned to save the crossings.

this week. Villagers and people throughout Broxtowe are against plans to close the three pedestrian crossings in the village.

I met Network Rail last Friday and we had a frank exchange of views! I explained why so many people oppose their plans and in turn they explained their concerns about safety.
We then explored alternatives to closure including a bridge with steps and ramps for bikes, wheel chairs and buggies, at the Meadow Lane crossing. Network Rail agreed to look at that proposal in detail. fb7We even discussed the possibility of a road bridge at the Cemex site when it closes and the land becomes available. This would also provide an alternative to the current level crossing with all its many faults.
Network Rail undertook to look at the various options; they are in no doubt as to the strength of opposition to their plans! My petition stands at over 1400 signatures – please be sure to sign it too.
<< Sign the petition to save Attenborough’s crossings >>

International Women’s Day video
fb8I will be in Parliament for International Women’s Day on March 8 so will miss an inspiring event at George Spencer Academy. Women will share work and career experiences to motivate younger women to aim high. GSA student, Emma Snow (an inspirational young woman at just 17) persuaded me to do an interview on video for the event which I am sure will be a great success.

Greasley Defibrillators success
Congratulations to Parish and Borough Councillors in Greasley who have secured funding for three defibrillators. The life-saving machines can be found at The Horse and Groom in Moorgreen, the shops on Smithurst Road, and at the Greasley Sports Centre. Defibs are easy to use and save lives after a cardiac arrest.

Kimberley tree felling to go ahead
Controversial work to improve the woods at Hall Om Wong Park in Kimberley starts soon. A large tree fell from the brewery wood, blocking Eastwood Road, which rather proves the work must be carried out. However, some residents have opposed the cutting down of trees in the Park.
Kimberley Borough Councillor Shane Easom, who Chairs the Leisure and Environment Committee says once the works are completed a partnership with Nottingham Greenwood team, local schools and youth groups will see wildflowers, shrubs, bird and bat boxes introduced.

Charity needs more space
Broxtowe based charity Operation Orphan need to expand. Can you help!
Each year their Forget-Me-Notts project donates 2000 gifts to vulnerable children at Christmas and Easter.

    I must take issue with your comment about Broxtowe Borough Council trying to save Greenbelt land. To date they havn’t saved any, and as I understand it just done a complete U-turn and recommended the building of several hundreds, if not thousands of houses, nearly all on Greenbelt land. So much for campaign promises.

  2. Fred R says:

    Kudos for going out to Jordan to see the refugee crisis first hand. You’ll be one of the few MPs who’ll know what the flip she’s talking about when refugee issues come up in debate. A caring Tory MP – I never thought I’d see the day…
