The Economy (22 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: This positive economic news is extremely welcome, and I have also welcomed the action taken by the Government to reduce the amount of tax on working families. Given this positive economic outlook, will my hon. Friend speak to the Chancellor about increasing the personal tax allowance, particularly to help working families but also to take more pensioners out of paying tax?

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: Will the hon. Member give way?

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: The hon. Member will know from Transport Committee visits that some of the commitments made in the hybrid Bill Committee have not been honoured. Does he share my concerns about that?

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: If we had a Labour Government—I hope that we will not—does the hon. Gentleman think that they would bring phase 2 back?

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: The hon. Gentleman mentioned Scotland. Of course, it was always intended that HS2 would be compatible with the conventional network that serves Scotland. Why does he think the Department for Transport specified HS2 trains that are not able to tilt and are not the right size to go on the classic network?

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: I must say that the motion before the House is quite bizarre. Now that the hybrid HS2 Bill has been adapted to supposedly deliver Northern Powerhouse Rail, we are asking the Select Committee on the High Speed Rail (Crewe – Manchester) Bill to agree a Bill for a railway that ends in a field, with no connection to the rest of the rail network. This is effectively a railway to nowhere. The...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: I thank my hon. Friend for those very thoughtful points. I entirely agree that the instruction is wide-ranging. It is concerning to see those sorts of powers being put forward to the Committee. It really does show the abuse of the hybrid Bill process. If any services are to use the line, the railway would have to secure much wider enhancements and additional complex infrastructure, and there...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: We may come to that shortly, but I am very concerned about this. Certainly, we may consider dividing on the motion. We should focus first on properly understanding the connectivity enhancement need, and then design the infrastructure to meet that need. Instead, we already have the infrastructure design, and are trying to make it fit with the improvements that we would like for connectivity...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: My hon. Friend has made a powerful point. That, too, illustrates the failings of the hybrid Bill process. My hon. Friend and I know about this all too well because of the abuses of the process that we have seen in Staffordshire, which really have not guarded against some of the issues and challenges to which people have been drawing attention. It brings into question the fitness of the...

High Speed Rail (Crewe - Manchester) Bill (Instruction) (No. 3) (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: Absolutely. We need reassurances from the Minister to allay the many fears among our communities throughout Staffordshire. Amendment (c) is consequential on amendment (b), and both relate to the “Ashley infrastructure maintenance base - rail”. This IMB-R was specifically designed to service phase 2 of HS2. Given that phase 2 has been cancelled and that the IMB-R will no longer be...

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: Will the hon. Member give way?

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: Will the hon. Gentleman now give way?

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: But you gave way!

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: I thank the hon. Member for giving way, but I am slightly perplexed, as to what it is we are hearing that is different from what the Government are doing. On franchising, very few to no Labour authorities have taken up those powers, despite the fact that they exist. Actually, those other authorities that are not mayoral areas can apply to the Secretary of State for authority to do franchising...

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: I would like to know what Labour would do differently.

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: South.

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Ms Vaz. I congratulate my city colleague, my hon. Friend the Member for Stoke-on-Trent North (Jonathan Gullis), on securing this important debate. Bus services are extremely important to everyone in the Potteries and right across England—notably for those in deprived and remote communities, but also for those who are wedded to their cars....

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: I thank my hon. Friend—actually, I think he is right honourable.

Bus Services: England — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (21 Mai 2024)

Jack Brereton: Well, he should be. I thank him for the work that he has been doing in the Department to push on some of these issues. That has been a great assistance, and I know he will continue to work hard for us in the Department. On the TCF package, we were promised that if funding was won, the city council would deliver a more efficient bus-rail interchange at Stoke station. Works are starting on the...
