MP chairs county police meeting in Parliament

Steve Brine chaired a high-level meeting in the House of Commons on Tuesday 20th January as the Police & Crime Commissioner, Simon Hayes, spoke to county MPs.

Mr Hayes briefed the cross-party group of Conservative and Labour MPs from Hampshire on his work, and provided updates on his police and crime plan for the county, while there was also a discussion around the police precept for 2015/16.

Steve Brine said: "This was a useful briefing for us all and the full turnout of MPs from both parties proved how importantly we all view policing issues in our areas.

"Simon's message around the rise in his precept for the year ahead was clear and I support his near 2% rise, helping as it will do protect front-line policing in my constituency while the force manages the savings we are demanding of it as we try to balance the books in our country."

Steve Brine: That is so unlike the hon. Gentleman. Good clarification. The stigma quite rightly has been mentioned by pretty much everyone who have spoken today. We recognise that people with ME have encountered significant stigma, in part due to the unfavourable media representations of the condition that not only go back to the 1980s but have continued in recent times. I have seen a clip of Ricky...

Steve Brine: I fully appreciate that point—the hon. Lady put it on the record very well earlier—which takes us on very neatly to welfare benefits. The hon. Members who requested the debate also flagged the issue of benefits. I know they would like, and are having, an ongoing conversation with the DWP. I am clearly not a DWP Minister—they wanted a Health Minister to respond to the debate,...
