Plymouth MP calls for reburial of WW2 sailors

BBC

A Plymouth MP has called for the reburial of Royal Navy sailors from World War Two, who were left in mass graves off the coast of Indonesia.

Labour MP Luke Pollard has made the call to the UK government following the latest incident of sunken ships from the war being disturbed by metal scavengers in the region.

It is estimated this practice has already destroyed up to 40 World War Two-era vessels in the Java sea.

One of those is the HMS Exeter on which 54 sailors died.

In a statement, Mr Pollard said: "As the MP for Devonport, I am asking for relatives of those who died on HMS Exeter to come forward to help me in my campaign to see these sailors buried properly.

"No fallen British sailor should have their remains dumped in unmarked mass graves in the 21st Century."

Nancy Astor: MP backs statue despite policy disagreements

A Plymouth MP who is backing a bid to build a statue to honour the first female MP to take her seat in the House of Commons says he supports the move despite disagreeing with many of her policies

Plymouth Labour MP Luke Pollard says he would like to see a memorial to Conservative Nancy Astor, who represented the city from 1919 to 1945.

He is aiming to mark the 100th anniversary of her election to the Plymouth Sutton ward and it's hoped the statue will be near her former home on Plymouth Hoe.

Mr Pollard said: "She wasn't just Plymouth Sutton's MP, she was the Member of Parliament for women and it's right that this is celebrated.

"I am determined to work cross-party, in her memory and her name to garner support to get more women to stand and be elected in Parliament."

There is no figure for the cost of the statue, but Mr Pollard said he would be forming a committee of supporters to raise funds for it.

Staffing issues 'a factor' in voting problems

Jenny Kumah

BBC Devon Politics reporter

The BBC understands that the report into voting problems in Plymouth for June's general election will highlight a catalogue of errors and staffing issues within the council's electoral team.

More than 1,500 postal ballots weren't sent out. Some voters reported being wrongly turned away at polling stations and thousands of votes were missed out of the result of one constituency.

The report into what went wrong will be officially published later.

Plymouth MP Luke Pollard makes maiden speech in Parliament

BBC Politics

A number of newly-elected MPs - including Labour's Plymouth Sutton & Devonport MP Luke Pollard - have been making their first, or maiden, speeches in Parliament.

In the Commons, Mr Pollard paid tribute to his Conservative predecessor, Oliver Colvile, adding: "Many honourable members will know of his passion for hedgehogs, and I hope someone will pick up the protection of the little prickly creatures. But, Mr Speaker, that won't be me."

Instead Mr Pollard, said he'd campaign for more naval frigates to be built in his constituency. He said: "Supporting marine engineering and shipbuilding businesses, large and small, in Plymouth, across the South West and our nation is exactly what our country needs."
