Our MP’s column

HERE are the latest thoughts of David Morris MP

A CAMPAIGN I have been working on for several months and will continue to do more work on in the coming months is in relation to pay day loans.

I am pleased that the Office of Fair Trading has taken the initiative to consult on such loans. I would strongly recommend you submit some thoughts to them, via their website http://www.oft.gov.uk

Over the weekend I was asked to deliver a speech in the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s constituency of Tatton. I was able to discuss a range of issues such as nuclear power and transport. I also took the opportunity to promote Morecambe and Lunesdale.

The Mail on Sunday, again ran an article about my Early Day Motion to have Thora Hird honoured with a blue plaque. The motion reads:

“That this House notes press reports that English Heritage has refused to erect a Blue Plaque commemoration to the late Thora Hird DBE; further notes that this has provoked outrage because of her significant contribution to acting over a 63-year career; believes that Thora Hird is worthy of a Blue Plaque in either London or Morecambe; further believes that the English Heritage policy of not erecting these plaques outside of London is wrong; and calls on English Heritage to erect a plaque to Thora Hird and review this discriminatory policy.”

My next surgery is on Friday, June 29 at Morecambe Library.
