Parliamentary Representation

Since his election Andrew has spoken in more than 100 debates in Parliament – well above average amongst MP’s. Since delivering his Maiden Speech on 17th June 2010 in a debate on building a high skilled economy Andrew has raised issues such as fuel poverty, Broadband coverage, Special Constables and the importance of protecting spending on the NHS.  You can read Andrew’s Maiden Speech here

Unlike his Labour predecessor Andrew has been particularly vocal on the importance of manufacturing jobs and the aerospace sector to Pendle frequently raising the concerns of local firms. Under the last Government 1.8 million manufacturing jobs were lost, including thousands in Pendle and Andrew is determined to support our local manufacturers.

In addition to asking questions and making speeches Andrew has so far led three debates in Parliament.  A debate on the murder of three members of the Yousaf family from Nelson on 12th October 2010 that was attended by over 300 constituents.  A debate on the plight of Pakistani Christians on 22nd March 2011 and a debate on the effect of new property regulations on holiday lettings on 14th June 2011.  The debate on property regulations followed a meeting between Andrew and the Hoseasons Group who employ over 500 in Earby and led to the Government axing regulations that would have place additional costs on an estimated 50,000 small businesses.

On 28th June 2011 Andrew proposed a 10 Minute Rule Bill, to change Bail laws following the murder of his constituent Jane Clough, who lived in Barrowford.  You can read Andrew’s speech here.  Andrew’s Bail (Amendment) Bill was to confer upon the prosecution a right to appeal against judges’ decisions to grant bail, a right that currently does not exist.   In October 2011 the Government agreed to support the Bill and in January 2012 Government Amendments were brought forward in the House of Lords, to achieve the aim of the Bail (Amendment) Bill.  Andrew wrote about the success of Justice for Jane campaign and paid tribute to Jane’s parents in his weekly column.
