Bassetlaw MP John Mann has tabled a Parliamentary Motion calling on the Government to implement its commitment and introduce a total ban on all ivory sales and close down the ivory market in the UK.

 John Mann MP tabled the motion because on average an elephant in Africa is killed once every 15 minutes for their ivory tusks and he believes that the Government must do more to offer protection to these wonderful animals. It has already received the backing of more than 20 MPs. 

John Mann said “The killing of an elephant for its ivory is sickening and the Government must now act on their good intentions and go one step further by introducing a blanket ban on the sale of all ivory products in the UK.”

John Mann continued “The Chinese Government, a major force in the world’s ivory market has announced it will ban all domestic trade in ivory by the end of 2017, its time we got our act together in the UK.”

John Mann MP has supported a debate in Parliament on avoidable sight loss.

There are almost 2 million people in the UK living with sight loss, and this is predicted to double to around 4 million people by 2050, in part due to our ageing population. It is estimated that 50% of sight loss incidences are avoidable. Despite the high occurrence of sight loss, there is no overarching strategy in England to govern it, in contrast to the strategies that exist for hearing loss and dementia. Eye care strategies do exist in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Since May 2010, there has not been a single full debate on eye health or sight loss in the House of Commons Chamber. John Mann MP has teamed up with other MPs to change that by applying for a debate on the subject.

We need more good-quality apprenticeships like the one she is doing in the UK and I am sure that the evidence she has given will help that.”
