Shailesh Vara MP, along with representatives from Yaxley Parish Council, local residents and the Middle-Level Commissioners has met with the developers Vistry and their consultants Stantec, who are developing the Great Haddon site.
Shailesh Vara MP has welcomed the Government's announcement that R.D. Williams & Sons Ltd, which is based in the village of Easton in Huntingdonshire, will receive £12,500 in funding to improve washroom facilities at the site.
Speaking in Northern Ireland Questions, Shailesh Vara asks the Secretary of State about the Republic of Ireland’s decision to take the UK Government to court over the Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Act 2023, which is designed to bring justice and information recovery to victims of the troubles.
Following the Home Secretary’s statement on the Government’s plan to stop the boats and tackle the vile trade in people smuggled across the channel, Shailesh Vara highlights the fact that the people who will be affected by the new proposals are arriving in this country from a safe country, France, and are mostly young men in their 20s and 30s who come here as economic migrants and not asylum seekers.
