  • Queen’s Speech debate: MP welcomes increase in UK exports to new growth markets | Alok Sharma MP - Member of Parliament for Reading West
    British jobs from inward investment from these countries Alok Sharma Reading West Con In the lead up to the general election I spent a lot of time talking to business owners and managers in my constituency and their verdict after 13 years of Labour government was that they felt that business was over taxed overburdened by regulation and overstretched by ever growing tax legislation Many businesses felt that the previous Government were on their backs not on their side stifling their growth not encouraging it and limiting their job creation not expanding it In contrast we have seen from the coalition a raft of policies that are laying firm foundations for sustainable future growth cutting corporation tax to the lowest level in the G7 cutting red tape and simplifying our tax system New Bills such as the enterprise and regulatory reform Bill will go further in reducing burdens on business by repealing unnecessary legislation I want to focus on exports and inward investment Economic uncertainty in the eurozone will undoubtedly impact on our exports but as many hon Members have pointed out our exports outside Europe have recently been growing That is where our export opportunities lie in the short medium and long term exports to new growth markets such as India and China A few weeks ago in departmental questions I asked the Business Secretary about our bilateral trade with India He informed the House that he would shortly be leaving to take a delegation of small and medium sized enterprises to India pointing out that this was his third trip to India since May 2010 That caused some amusement among Opposition Members suggesting I assume that they thought the Secretary of State was off on some sort of jaunt That is exactly the sort of attitude that demonstrates why the Labour party does not get business and does not understand what is needed to grow our exports Business is not won by sitting and whingeing from the Opposition Benches In a global marketplace if one is fighting for global contracts against global competitors one needs to sell and market across the world I am rather pleased that we have Ministers across many Departments getting on planes and batting for British business abroad According to statistics from the Library in 2000 the UK was the third largest source of imports for India By 2010 after 10 years of Labour government that ranking had dropped to 22nd The absolute level of bilateral trade has gone up but not fast enough Given our shared democratic values history language and cultural and family ties there is much to suggest that we should have been doing a lot better on bilateral trade I am very pleased that the UK aims to double bilateral trade with India by 2015 but given the slow down elsewhere we might need to be even more ambitious We are making progress and the Indian companies that I speak to see the UK as being open for business with

  • West Berkshire Council development plan
    others are still in these proposals In my submission last year to the Council I had said that there was an obligation for it to fully consider the likelihood of extra homes being created from windfall sites infilling empty homes being brought back into use and the potential conversion of non residential buildings such as office space into residential properties I am to be convinced whether the Council has really done this piece of work thoroughly Alok continued Going forward I also think it is incumbent on local councils to consider more actively public sector land and Brownfield sites which could be used for housing rather than building on Greenfield sites which are a valuable amenity for local people I will of course be standing shoulder to shoulder with my constituents as they continue to campaign against unsustainable development Keep Tilehurst Green KTG one of the residents group that has campaigned against development of the Greenfield sites has vowed to continue to fight the plans KTG Co Chair Iain Jones said We now need to fight harder to save the fields at Clements Mead and Stonehams Farm It s great news that Blackthorn is saved it s clear that the voice of the community can make a difference in this process We now need everyone in our community to turnout at the West Berkshire Council meeting on 5 November to show what everyone in Tilehurst thinks of this Iain continued As we have said before we are not fundamentally opposed to development but new houses must be built in areas that benefit both the existing community and provide good levels of services for new families moving in West Berkshire Council s proposals will not achieve either of these aims Joan Lawrie Chair of the combined Save Pincents Hill and Save
