MY WEEK IN WESTMINSTER

I am still receiving representations from Lytham residents regarding parking problems outside their homes.

I wrote to several more homeowners last week after it became clear the issue is more widespread than I originally anticipated.

There has been a strong response to the letter, and I am now in the process of collating all of the responses.

These will be handed to Lancashire County Council as part of a dossier calling for action to improve the situation for residents.

The fourth round of EU negotiations began this week. It is a vital time for our country and we are leading the talks. Labour, on the other hand, has denied its members the chance to even debate Brexit at its annual conference, because they are too divided on the issue and have no plan. Only the Conservatives are getting on with delivering the best Brexit deal for everyone.

We will concentrate on progressing issues like the onward movement of UK citizens in the EU, and voting rights in local elections. We both want to avoid changes to the way citizens enjoy their rights and our proposals will deliver that.

On Northern Ireland and Ireland, there is common desire to maintain the Common Travel Area and protect the Good Friday Agreement.

The Prime Minister made clear the UK will be the strongest friend and partner to the EU after we leave and how maintaining the reciprocal arrangements for the Common Travel Area and the citizenship rights guaranteed by the Belfast Agreement were at the heart of our approach.

I have written this week to our five secondary schools to see if they will take part in a digital media competition called Bank, Camera, Action.

 

School children aged 11-18 are invited to submit a short film to the Bank. This year’s title is ‘What independence means to me’ and coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Bank of England being granted operational independence over monetary policy.

 

Independence means different things to different people.  For students it may be passing their driving test, getting a Saturday job, or leaving school.  So we are giving schools the opportunity to create a film that communicates the subject in an interesting and imaginative way. I hope they decide to take part.
