Beverley’s Liberal Democrats have called on local Conservative MP Graham Stuart to sack Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak following the revelation that both are to be fined over lockdown-breaking parties at Number 10.
The Liberal Democrats are also calling for Parliament to be recalled immediately so MPs can hold a vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson as Prime Minister, following the revelation that both he and Rishi Sunak are to be fined over lockdown-breaking parties at Number 10.
MP Graham Stuart met with Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak to discuss the local economy and employment opportunities for his constituents.
Top of the agenda was the proposal to reinstate the direct rail route between Beverley and York, which its proponents argue would boost east-west connections from the East Riding to North Yorkshire and beyond, while also improving resilience and freeing up capacity along the existing westward route via Selby.
MP Graham Stuart has heaped praise on the founder of the Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs (AFVBC), Dereck Hardman after he visited Parliament to raise the organisation’s profile among MPs.
The former Royal Engineer founded the first Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club in Hull in 2007, operating out of Pete Barker’s Motor Engineers. The clubs are aimed at tackling social isolation among veterans and helping Armed Forces personnel to adjust when they enter civilian life.
A bid to restore a 40-mile direct rail route between Hull and York has today been given the green light by Government Ministers.
The bid, sponsored by Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart, will now receive support from officials at the Department for Transport as well as funding for 75% of the cost of creating a business case, up to a maximum of £50,000.
MP Graham Stuart has thanked pig farmers in his constituency for their hard work to make him aware of the litany of problems facing their industry, including labour and CO2 shortages.
Across the country, the industry has been experiencing workforce shortages of approximately 10-15%, while a reduction in exports to China thanks to Covid-19 outbreaks at processing plants has compounded problems as repurposing pigs for the domestic market requires significantly more butchery.
MP Graham Stuart has nominated Jay Norris, a Hornsea boy, for the Kids Count Inspiration Awards for his outstanding dedication and commitment to keeping his local beach clean.
The aim of the Kids Count Inspiration Awards is to recognise those individuals and organisations that have inspired young people in their communities. These are special awards that give MPs the opportunity to highlight outstanding work in their constituency and to demonstrate their commitment and support.

New research, commissioned by the Department for International Trade and carried out by the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI) at the University of Strathclyde has estimated that nearly 6.5 million jobs in the UK are supported by exports.
Local MP Graham Stuart has welcomed new constituency-level vaccination figures which show that Beverley and Holderness is ahead of the national average of one-third of adults having received their first Covid-19 jab.
The most recently available data show all jabs administered up to 21st February, at which point 32,581 people over the age of 18 had received their first dose of either the Pfizer/BioNTech or Oxford/AstraZeneca shot.
