In my last Christmas message as the Member of Parliament for Ellesmere Port & Neston I would like to thank residents of Ellesmere Port & Neston constituency for all the support they have given me over the past 23 years.  It has been an honour and a privilege to serve local people and to help build this constituency into a thriving area with a growing local economy thanks to hard-working local communities.  I hope you think that I have made a difference - working with others to improve the constituency.

These things are never really finished and further steps need to be taken to continue to improve the lives and life chances for not only Ellesmere Port & Neston, but the North West as a whole. 

Through hard fought negotiations we retain Vauxhall Motors who continue to produce the Astra.  At the southern end of Ellesmere Port there have been radical changes over the past 20 years, with the development of Cheshire Oaks, the Coliseum, Blue Planet Aquarium and the flag ship M&S store.  Over the years we have lost some employers like Cabot Carbon, Marconi, HH Robertson and Calor, but we have new businesses in their place like Encirc (Quinn Glass).  In Neston the new Sainsbury’s and the Aldi Distribution Depot have also replaced some of the lost jobs.  We have also seen the opening of Regatta and a number of technology based companies in Pioneer Park and, of course, the beginning of the Thornton Science Park. 

This year being the 100th anniversary of World War 1 we should remember all those who lost their lives in the name of our Country in that conflict and in others.  We also remember all those who suffer because of war and its aftermath.

Last but not least, spare a thought for all those who will have to work over the festive break to keep our essential services running including, the Police, Fire & Ambulance, doctors & nurses, care-workers and energy providers.

I wish all of you a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

It has been formally confirmed that Stanney Lane ARC, Ellesmere Port has been given a stay of execution from disposal until Dec 16 to support the growth of the Reserves.  The decision will be reviewed in Dec 16 and longer term retention of the ARC beyond Dec 16 will likely see the Defence Infrastructure Organisation require a compensatory disposal to be offered up by the Army.

 

Andrew Miller MP has welcomed the reprieve for TA centre in Stanney Lane. He said, “I told Ministers that their proposal was mistaken and I hope that an incoming Government after the General Election will be able permanently reverse the decision.” He went on to say that, “In a community that has historically been a strong recruitment ground for our armed forces, I expressed anger at the Government turning their back on the town, ignoring the commitment given by so many local families.”

Andrew said:

 

“A murky multi-million pound trade in wild animals and their parts is booming across online marketplaces.  A shocking report just released by IFAW shows how thousands of endangered species are bought and sold on the Internet, many advertised without any form of supporting documentation.

 

“IFAW’s report Wanted – Dead or Alive, Exposing Online Wildlife Trade reveals that, in early 2014, an intense six-week investigation found a total of 33,006 endangered wildlife and wildlife parts and products for sale via 280 online market places across 16 countries.  In the UK, websites hosted 1,087 online advertisements offering a total of 1,603 items for sale including ivory and suspected ivory, turtles, tortoises, owls, exotic birds, monkeys and parts and products from elephants, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, alligators and big cats.

 

“I fully support IFAW’s call for tougher measures and the strongest possible enforcement of the law to clamp down on this organised criminal activity.  Governments need to introduce stronger legislation that specifically targets online wildlife crime and must encourage and support their enforcement agencies in making sure wildlife cybercriminals are apprehended and prosecuted.”
