Jeremy Quin: Westminster Hall debate on aircraft noise

On Wednesday 20th April, I spoke in a Westminster Hall debate in Parliament on the effect of aircraft noise on local communities. I spoke of the horrific impact if Government were to go against the clear recommendation of the Davies Commission by approving a second runway at Gatwick Airport. A copy of the Hansard of this debate with the Minister’s response at the end can be viewed here: https://hansard.parliament.uk/commons/2016-04-20/debates/16042033000001…

Jeremy Quin's Maiden Speech

Every five years there is a Parliamentary ritual which involves every new MP making a maiden speech.  In the past this was a leisurely affair in which new MPs would often wait years before making their first contribution.  I would not expect my constituents to be as patient! In the few weeks since the election, among many activities in the constituency and Westminster: I have gone a long way towards setting up an office to serve constituents; met with the Rail Minister to insist she forces action to improve local services; submitted, jointly with fellow concerned MPs, a contribution to the Air Quality Consultation; and progressed, in many cases resolved, dozens of pieces of casework.  Each of these is incredibly important to those writing-in but none could be progressed during the election campaign.
