City MP raises pensions question in Carillion aftermath

Labour's Sheffield Central MP Paul Blomfield has raised the issue of Carillion's insolvency and its impact on staff pensions in the Commons.

Mr Blomfield asked: "I think it will be very little comfort to many Carillion staff past and present when they hear that their pension fund is approaching a deficit of a billion pounds.

"Public sector contracts have made some at the top of Carillion very rich indeed. So what action is the minister taking to ensure that current and future pensioners don't lose out?"

Business minister Andrew Griffiths responded that anyone worried about their pension can contact the Pensions Advisory Service whose dedicated helpline has now responded to over 800 calls since the insolvency of the construction giant was announced earlier this month.

BBC Yorkshire Live

The parliamentary constituency of Sheffield Central tops the country-wide list for net gain with the 2,456 international students who lived in the constituency and started their studies in 2015/16 generating £226m per year during the duration of their course.

The Leeds Central constituency was 11th in the table, generating £153.9m from international students during the same period.

Once again the benefits of international students living and studying in Sheffield are clear. Thousands of jobs across the city are created by money spent on tuition fees, as well as shops, restaurants, housing and more"

Listen: 'Ministerial code carried out pretty strictly' - Former Sheffield MP

The resignation of UK International Development Secretary Priti Patel was the right move, according to a former Sheffield Labour MP.

Ms Patel resigned yesterday evening after holding a series of unauthorised meetings with Israeli officials and faced accusations of breaking the ministerial code.

In her resignation letter, Ms Patel said her actions "fell below the standards of transparency and openness that I have promoted and advocated".

Richard Caborn, former Labour MP for Sheffield Central, who held many cabinet positions when Tony Blair was Prime Minister, says Ms Patel had to go:

Sheffield MP blasts rail electrification plan as 'betrayal'

The government's been accused of breaking promises over the decision not to electrify the Midland Mainline between South Yorkshire and London.

Instead plans have been announced for so called "bi-mode" intercity trains from 2022 which can run either on electric lines or using diesel power

Paul Blomfield Labour MP
Labour Party

The Labour MP for Sheffield Central, Paul Blomfield, says the move is a double betrayal:

At a time when there has never been a greater focus on the impact of diesel fuel on the environment their decision to scrap electrification is incredibly irresponsible. It’s an utter disgrace that this announcement is on the last day of Parliament when the decision can’t be properly challenged.”
