Bassetlaw MP John Mann commented: “Congratulations to Jaden, who did a great job in front of the committee today. I was very pleased to meet Jaden before her appearance and chat to her about her apprenticeship. 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.”

 

After her appearance, Jaden commented: “If you know what you want to do in life, go for it.  I found an apprenticeship was the best way for me to become a Civil Engineer and as I told the DWP Committee - I love it!”

Bassetlaw MP John Mann has written to the Chancellor Philip Hammond calling on him to make an immediate cut of 10p in the rate of Fuel Duty in his Autumn Statement.

 

In his letter John Mann noted that the previous Chancellor George Osborne added £5 to the cost of a full tank.

 

Mr Mann also called on the Chancellor to use the decision as a positive way to incentivise switching from Diesel cars which the Government is committed to banning from City Centres following the High Court ruling on their failure to meet safe air quality standards.

 

John Mann MP said “I have written to the Chancellor asking him to make this cut as it would provide an immediate boost to the economy and help families and small businesses who have been hit by rising oil prices.”

 

John Mann continued “This would not only boost our economy but it would also provide a positive incentive to motorists to switch from Diesel fuelled vehicles which the Government has identified as high polluters and bad for the environment. This cut in fuel duty will make it far cheaper and realistic for people to buy petrol cars when they next change vehicles.”

 

“The Chancellor should use his first Autumn Statement to make a bold statement and I believe this is just the ticket.”

Treasury Select Committee Member John Mann MP has said that today’s decision from the Royal Bank of Scotland to compensate business owners who were appallingly treated by its Global Restructuring Group simply isn’t enough.

RBS has today announced a new complaints process for customers whose businesses were put into its GRG unit and a compensation scheme for businesses who were charged outrageous fees by the bank whilst in the GRG.

 

As a member of the Treasury Select Committee John Mann MP has been involved in the investigations into the behaviour of RBS’ GRG Unit for over three years.

 

John Mann MP said “The actions of the Global Restructuring Group resulted in hundreds of businesses in Yorkshire and the Midlands being forced into liquidation and cost people not only their livelihoods but also their homes and families.”

 

John Mann continued “With their actions today RBS has finally admitted that it has not done nearly enough to compensate those people who were forced into its restructuring unit.”

 

“A £400 million compensation scheme simply isn’t enough, we the taxpayers and part owners of RBS along with their customers need to know why this was allowed to happen.”
