Many people will have seen the comments from Claire Perry MP, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Transport who, this week, stated that commuters should enjoy “fair fares for comfortable commuting” following the announcement that next year’s rail prices are set to increase by 3.5%, which is 1% above inflation.

Today I visted the Bolton Citizens Advice Bureau where I met with staff and volunteers who provide support and advice to thousands of residents of Bolton. In the last year the Bolton CAB has assisted over 4,000 of my constituents with problems they have faced with debts, cuts to benefits and immigration. They do a [...]
I am delighted that from tomorrow until the 10th August Bolton will have the honour of hosting the British Transplant Games. Hundreds of athletes from the ages of 2 to 80, who are all transplant recipients, will converge on Bolton and take part in numerous sporting events. The event has been held for over 30 [...]
Since the launch of ‘Operation Protective Edge’ on the 8th July almost 2,000 Palestinians, 450 of which were children, have been killed and 450,000 internally displaced within Gaza. This deadly battle has wreaked havoc, punishment and devastation on a sieged and suffering population. Like many I watch the daily streams of news coverage with great [...]

He had pledged to extend the current cull, which was tested in two pilot areas in west Gloucestershire and west Somerset, but has now performed a climb-down on the issue. These [...]
Standardised Tobacco Packaging On Friday 11 July 2014, I met young people from Bolton who asked me to call for the introduction of standardised tobacco packaging – a campaign backed by social enterprise Tobacco Free Futures , who recently helped over over 60,000 people in the North West to have their say on the Government’s [...]
LABOUR WILL GIVE THE ‘FORGOTTEN 50 PER CENT’ OF YOUNG PEOPLE THE SKILLS TO SUCCEED For too long there has been an assumption that the best path to success for young people is via the conventional academic route. That kind of thinking is now out of date. For a 14 year old following the traditional [...]
Wild Animals in Circuses For several years, the Government has said that it will ban the use of wild animals in circuses, yet it has, so far, failed to do so.
