Colne Valley Petitions

e-Petitions are administered by Parliament and allow members of the public to express support for a particular issue.

If an e-petition reaches 10,000 signatures the Government will issue a written response.

If an e-petition reaches 100,000 signatures the petition becomes eligible for a Parliamentary debate (usually Monday 4.30pm in Westminster Hall).

Petition Debates Contributed

We ask Parliament to repeal the High Speed Rail Bills, 2016 and 2019, as MPs voted on misleading environmental, financial and timetable information provided by the Dept of Transport and HS2 Ltd. It fails to address the conditions of the Paris Accord and costs have risen from £56bn to over £100bn.

(View all written questions)
Written Questions can be tabled by MPs and Lords to request specific information information on the work, policy and activities of a Government Department
24th May 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what assessment he has made of adequacy of online gambling protections provided by gambling companies for (a) known frequent gamblers and (b) other online users.

Keeping gambling fair and open and free from crime, and protecting children and vulnerable people from being harmed or exploited are priorities for the government and key licensing objectives for the Gambling Commission. The Commission requires all operators to monitor gambling activity and to intervene where a customer may be at risk of harm. It has consulted on tightening its rules on customer interaction for online operators and will publish a response and next steps in the summer.

The government launched its Review of the Gambling Act 2005 on 8 December with the publication of a Call for Evidence. As part of the broad scope of the Review, we called for evidence on the effectiveness of our regulatory system, including protections for online gamblers and the Gambling Commission's powers and resources. We aim to publish a white paper by the end of the year.

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the Gambling Commission in reducing gambling-related harms.

The Commission requires all operators to monitor gambling activity and to intervene where a customer may be at risk of harm.

We aim to publish a white paper by the end of the year.

25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what specific steps his Department will take to enforce restrictions on online advertising of products high in fat, sugar and salt.

In 2019 and 2020, the Government consulted on proposals to further restrict HFSS advertising on TV and online. We will be publishing the government response to the consultation shortly, which will set out the future policy direction for both TV and online HFSS advertising.

In the 2020 consultation we proposed that the day-to-day responsibility for applying HFSS advertising restrictions be given to the Advertising Standards Authority, recognising their expertise and experience in regulating advertising. Following the current regulatory regime, we propose that breaches would be resolved in line with current ASA policy of responding to individual complaints and promoting voluntary cooperation with the restriction.

If this approach failed or advertisers were committing repeated or severe breaches relating to HFSS marketing material, they would face stronger penalties through a statutory backstop. We would envisage that the backstop regulator would have powers to issue civil sanctions, including the ability to issue fines.

We want to ensure that the enforcement powers of the statutory regulator are designed and used in a way that incentivises compliance and allows for rapid remedial action. The Government will implement any new HFSS advertising restrictions across both online and TV simultaneously by the end of 2022, as outlined in the Tackling Obesity policy published on 27 July 2020.

25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, with reference to plans to restrict online advertising of products High in Fat, Sugar and Salt (HFSS), whether online platforms are planned to be held legally responsible under statutory rules for making sure that HFSS food and drink advertising does not appear.

The government will shortly publish its response to consultations held in 2019 and 2020 which set out proposals to ban HFSS advertisements being shown on TV before 9pm, and for further statutory measures to restrict HFSS advertising online.

The response will set out the Government’s approach to online liability and enforcement.

24th May 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Education, with reference to the Answer of 19 April 2021 to Question 175810 on Education: Finance, if he will confirm the cost of using a national funding rate of £4,760 to calculate 16-19 funding allocations for 2020-21.

Modelling the cost of increasing the base rate to £4,760 for 16-19 funding allocations for 2020-21 would require consideration of various factors, such as, the forecast of expected student numbers across age ranges, the characteristics of those students, the courses undertaken, the effect of lagged funding and the impact of the policy change required. The department does not routinely make estimates of this kind.

Gillian Keegan
Minister of State (Department of Health and Social Care)
25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if he will make an estimate of the cost of increasing the national funding rate for all full time 16, 17 and 18 year old students to £4,760 per year.

The information requested is not held centrally as the department does not routinely make estimates of this kind. Modelling such costs would require consideration of various factors, such as the forecast of expected student numbers across age ranges, the characteristics of those students, the courses undertaken, the effect of lagged funding and the impact of the policy change required.

Gillian Keegan
Minister of State (Department of Health and Social Care)
4th Mar 2020
What steps her Department is taking to protect the world’s (a) forestry and (b) biodiversity.

DFID is at the forefront of global efforts to tackle illegal logging and promote sustainable trade in timber, and eliminate deforestation from supply chains. These programmes, and other assistance from the UK, are helping to preserve the world’s most valuable habitats and address biodiversity loss.

25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent progress has been made on updates to the Transpennine rail route.

£589m funding announced in July 2020 has enabled further design and development work on the Transpennine Route Upgrade programme. The first stages of Overhead Line Electrification (OLE) installation have begun between York and Church Fenton, and in the Spring Network Rail will be carrying out engineering work between Manchester Victoria and Stalybridge to support future masts and electric wires.

Andrew Stephenson
Minister of State (Department for Transport)
25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent progress has been made on the eastern leg of HS2 that connects the line to Yorkshire.

The government is committed to ensuring Yorkshire reaps the benefits on high-speed services. The Integrated Rail Plan will consider the sequencing and delivery of HS2, as well as Northern Powerhouse Rail and other rail investment projects to ensure the benefits of these investments are delivered to passengers and communities more quickly. We intend to publish the IRP this Spring.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what information his Department holds on the roll-out of electric buses in (a) Colne Valley (b) Kirklees and (c) West Yorkshire.

Through the Ultra-Low Emission Bus Scheme (ULEBS), West Yorkshire Combined Authority (which includes both Colne Valley and Kirklees) and First West Yorkshire received £617,000.00 for 5 electric buses and charging infrastructure and £1,770,472.50 for 9 electric buses and charging infrastructure respectively, totalling £2,387,472.50.

Rachel Maclean
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Home Office)
2nd Jul 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how many electric buses are operating in (a) Colne Valley constituency, (b) Kirklees and (c) West Yorkshire.

We do not hold information on how many buses are operating in a particular area, but we can provide the number of buses & coaches registered in West Yorkshire according to the location of the recorded keeper of each vehicle.

The following table relates to where these vehicles are registered by their keeper, which does not mean they are operated in these areas, nor does it stop other buses & coaches registered elsewhere from operating in these areas.

17th Jun 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate he has made of budget required for the Transpennine rail upgrade.

The Transpennine Route Upgrade (TRU) is a multi-billion pound programme and the Government's biggest single investment in upgrading the country's railway in the next five years. TRU has developed an Outline Business Case that has been going through approval processes this month. Further announcements on the budget will be made as soon as that process completes.

17th Jun 2020
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what assessment he has made of the benefits of the Transpennine Rail Upgrade to passengers and commuters.

The Transpennine Route Upgrade (TRU) is a vital step towards transforming rail connectivity across the north, delivering more seats, faster journeys, a more reliable service for commuters and visible improvements to several stations along the route.

Andrew Stephenson
Minister of State (Department for Transport)
19th Oct 2021
What recent assessment his Department has made of the progress of the covid-19 vaccine rollout.

Due to our successful COVID-19 vaccination programme we have now delivered over 83 million doses to people in England, including 3.6 million booster and third doses to the most vulnerable since September.

This has reduced the link between case numbers and hospitalisation, preventing the National Health Service from becoming overwhelmed and provided additional protection ahead of the winter.

Over 24.3million infections have been prevented and more than 127,000 lives saved to date.

Maggie Throup
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department of Health and Social Care)
25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will publish his timeframe for the policy development and publishing of the Tobacco Control Plan.

A new Tobacco Control plan is due to be published later this year and will set out further ambitions to deliver a smoke free country by 2030. Policies for the new plan are currently under development. We will consider all proposals from the 2019 Green Paper, including those on e-cigarettes and addressing smoking in particular vulnerable groups.

Jo Churchill
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)
25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what plans he has to bring forward proposals in the Green Paper, Advancing our health: prevention in the 2020s, in the upcoming Tobacco Control Plan.

A new Tobacco Control plan is due to be published later this year and will set out further ambitions to deliver a smoke free country by 2030. Policies for the new plan are currently under development. We will consider all proposals from the 2019 Green Paper, including those on e-cigarettes and addressing smoking in particular vulnerable groups.

Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs)
25th Mar 2021
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, which products are planned to be included in the scope of the proposed ban of TV advertising of products High in Fat, Sugar and Salt (HFSS); and whether only products of particular appeal to children are planned to be banned.

The current proposal is to use the categories originally put forward by Public Health England (PHE) as part of the calorie reduction programme, sugar reduction programme and the soft drinks industry levy overlaying this with the 2004/05 Nutrient Profiling Model. As outlined in our consultations, one of the key objectives of any further advertising restriction was to be targeted at the products of more concern to childhood obesity.

Officials are considering the final list put forward by PHE as well as views fed in as part of the consultation process to come to a final decision on what products are in scope and will publish our full response to the consultation shortly.
