Keep Breast Cancer Treatment in Bassetlaw

Recent Activity

In response to last night’s County Council Planning Committee vote to allow an exploratory well to be drilled on land off the A634 between Barnby Moor and Blyth, local MP John Mann said that any fracking should only go ahead if local people support it.

 

Mann commented: “I made my views clear to the Committee and raised objections including the increase in heavy goods traffic that local residents will have to put up with.”

 

“When fracking first became a major issue in the UK, I suggested and supported a number of proposals in Parliament. I put forward an amendment to the law which would prohibit fracking wells being drilled within 2km of any town or village and called for a stop to all fracking until more evidence about it had been gathered.”

 

“My proposals were defeated in Parliament, but I still believe that local people should have the final say and this is not being allowed to happen”.

This week John Mann MP joined seven leading UK charities to highlight World Cancer Day 2017.

Cancer Research UK, Breast Cancer Care, Breast Cancer Now, CLIC Sargent, Anthony Nolan, Bowel Cancer UK and Marie Curie have joined forces to make a bigger impact in transforming the lives of millions who are affected by cancer.

John Mann commented: “One in two people born in the UK will develop cancer at some point in their lifetime.  The statistics also show that these figures are a lot higher deprived areas including in certain parts of Bassetlaw.  Most of us have lost family members and friends to the horrific disease and we all share the hope that it’s something that can be eradicated or easily treated in future years.”

 “I am keen to support this group of charities, who work so hard to support people and their families and put valuable resources into seeking new treatments and cures.”  

“I know that a large number of local people raise money for cancer charities and their commitment should also be recognised.”

John Mann MP supports World Cancer Day 2017

This week John Mann MP joined seven leading UK charities to highlight World Cancer Day 2017.

On Monday evening John Mann MP held a debate in Parliament on the future of Bassetlaw Hospital and the closure of the children’s ward to new admissions overnight. 

Mann commented:

 

“On Monday in Parliament I gave a voice to a lot of very small children in Bassetlaw who cannot speak for themselves. Over the past few weeks I have met with parents who are now being affected by the closure of the children’s ward to new admissions overnight and have to take their children to Doncaster or further afield. I wanted to make sure Parliament heard their voices.”

 

“Every child and parent in Bassetlaw will benefit from keeping the children’s ward fully functional and fully operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is huge support for this campaign from local families, with almost 10,000 people joining a Facebook campaign in less than a week. I encourage everyone to join the campaign and speak up for local children.”

 

Two public meetings are being organised for Saturday 4th February. The first is at Retford Town Hall at 10am and the second is at the Worksop Miners Welfare on Carlton Road at 12 noon.
