    Sheryll Murray: What work has my right hon. Friend’s Department undertaken to look at using virtual platforms, with which children are now familiar, to set up international meetings to help improve foreign language skills and knowledge of different cultures?
  • Business of the House (11 Feb 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: Will my right hon. Friend consider calling a debate in Government time to discuss the current situation facing the fish-catching sector? Far from being in a position where we will have an expanded fishing sector in five years’ time, there is a real danger of vessels going to the wall now and having no sector left unless urgent financial help is given.

  • Cabinet Office: Trade: UK and EU (11 Feb 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: Fishing exporters in my constituency are having problems exporting to the EU. We signed a deal that said we could export to the EU. What action is my right hon. Friend taking to ensure that these exports happen without hindrance, and will he start boarding EU vessels in retaliation if we still see this obstructive action on the part of the European Union?
  • Local Government Finance (England) (10 Feb 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: I thank the Government for the assistance that they have given to Cornwall to fund many aspects of life throughout what has been an incredibly difficult time. Much has been given through Cornwall Council, and I thank those who have redistributed Government funds to the people of Cornwall. I also thank the hard-working council staff at Cornwall Council who have done so much during this...
  • Policing (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: I thank the police for all they do, in particular the way in which they have policed the pandemic in this very challenging time. I thank the Government for their investment in the police force and, in particular, their commitment to increase the number of officers, which has meant nearly 300 additional officers in Devon and Cornwall so far, on top of the local growth numbers funded by our...
  • UK Shellfish Exports (8 Feb 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: With your permission, Madam Deputy Speaker, I would like to send my condolences to the family of my constituent who suffered a fatal accident aboard a Newlyn fishing vessel on Saturday. It is almost a decade since Neil was killed, and I know how they feel. I know that my right hon. Friend has tried his best, but the time has now come to show the EU that we will not surrender to its games over...
  • Holocaust Memorial Day 2021 (28 Jan 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: I thank the Backbench Business Committee for selecting this timely debate. It is important that we as politicians learn as much as we can about what happens when politics goes wrong, as they did in Germany in the late 1930s and early ’40s under Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party. I have joined students from my South East Cornwall constituency on a visit to Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland,...
  • EU Trade and Co-operation Agreement: Fishing Industry (14 Jan 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: My constituent Andrew Trust, the owner of Ocean Harvest, is finding that the high cost of border control charges, export health certificates, the need for a fiscal representative in France and the uncertainty that his fish will reach the buyer in the EU poses a real threat to his business. What compensating measures will the Government put in place?
  • Covid-19: Vaccinations (11 Jan 2021)
    Sheryll Murray: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart), I am starting to get queries about vaccinations from elderly residents. I am sure that this will expand as the roll-out progresses and people could be missed. What facilities is his Department putting in place to answer questions quickly from very worried constituents?
  • European Union (Future Relationship) Bill (30 Dec 2020)
    Sheryll Murray: I was really pleased that the Prime Minister secured this deal. It will mean so much to so many, and I support it. I was, however, disappointed that the deal was linked to our fishing waters. To say that fishermen are disappointed is an understatement, and I share their disappointment. I do understand that the EU originally demanded access to our six to 12-mile limit for 40 years and that the...
  • Cabinet Office: UK-EU Negotiations (17 Dec 2020)
    Sheryll Murray: What recent assessment he has made of the effectiveness of negotiations on the UK’s future relationship with the EU.

    Sheryll Murray: What steps his Department is taking to support the Welsh fishing sector.
  • Wales: Fishing (16 Dec 2020)
    Sheryll Murray: Welsh fishermen have said to me how important it is that we take back control of our waters and do not give away access in any trade deal with the EU. Does my right hon. Friend back them in that goal?
  • Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (10 Dec 2020)
