We are not afraid. And our resolve will never waver in the face of terrorism.

10 Downing Street

PM: Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected by the attack on the streets of our capital. https://www.gov.uk/…/prime-ministers-statement-following-at…

Theresa May
I have just chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency committee COBRA following the sick and depraved terrorist attack on the streets of our capital this afternoon. The full details of exactly what happened are still emerging, but having been updated by police and security officials, I can confirm that this appalling incident began when a single attacker drove his vehicle in to pedestrians walking across Westminster Bridge, killing two people and injuring many more including three police officers.
This attacker, who was armed with a knife, then ran towards Parliament where he was confront...
...

The labour and lib dem run council has had a period of consultation with residents. But this was a sham, they simply don't listen and don't care. When they are ...elected locally, to them that is a green light to do whatever they want. And what they want is to destroy green spaces, leave wide areas of housing unsuitable for living in, and cram as many people as they can into a small area to push house prices down and make the residents poorer. And whilst at the same time profiteering from this shambolic scheme. The population of Burnley is reducing, and more and more houses are being boarded up. And yet they want even MORE houses! They have abandoned this town and its residents. When they have exhausted the people's patience, they just resort to getting some new ones. We want better housing in currently built up areas, and investment in the town centre to bring in business, tourism, and a good reputation to our town. We need change, and that change begins with the elections in May if the people want it.

My Barnoldswick and Earby Times, Colne Times and Nelson Leader Column from Friday 10th March 2017…

With their first anniversary approaching, I was pleased to ca...tch up with representatives of Northern in Parliament this week and learn more about their plans to improve local rail services.

Northern, the trading name of Arriva Rail North, is the primary train operator in Northern England and began operating the Northern franchise on 1 April 2016. Northern’s planned improvements will maintain high safety standards, deliver better journeys and improve customer service. By 2020 those travelling with Northern will benefit from: New or refurbished trains, a variety of station improvements, the removal of the unpopular Pacer trains, faster and more frequent services, extra seats and services during peak periods, and free Wi-Fi, improved on-board information, CCTV and better toilet facilities.

I discussed Brierfield, Nelson and Colne stations with representatives from the company, the need to get rid of the current Pacer trains as soon as possible, timetabling issues, the potential for increasing passenger numbers with the £32 million transformation of Brierfield Mills and other issues.
Parliamentarians also stopped this week to mark International Women’s Day, with a range of events.

This included the Prime Minister announcing more funding to tackle domestic violence and abuse. Building on her commitment to bringing forward a Domestic Violence and Abuse Act, the Prime Minister confirmed an additional £20 million to support organisations working to tackle domestic violence and abuse – money that will also support vulnerable victims. This increases total funding for the Government’s Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy to over £100 million in this Parliament.

Tackling domestic violence and abuse has been a high priority for me, ever since Jane Clough’s murder in 2010. I have long felt that the Government needs to completely transform the way we think about and tackle domestic violence and abuse. Raising awareness as well as strengthening the law will prove crucial in the fight against this life shattering and abhorrent crime, so I welcome this week’s news.

During Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy questions this morning in the House of Commons I mentioned the £50m expansion of Rolls-Royce in Barnoldswick and... asked about support for the aerospace sector. I also asked about the nuclear supply chain following a visit to Graham Engineering in Nelson last Friday (they are currently expanding and have 30 vacancies).
