Yorkshire’s Grand Committee

Friday, October 30, 2009

Meg Munn MP attended the inaugural meeting of the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Grand Committee recently. Held in Barnsley Town Hall, the meeting was chaired by Sheffield MP, Clive Betts. The meeting gave regional Members of Parliament the opportunity to question regional Minister Rosie Winterton, as well as debating the regional economy. The meeting was open to the public.


Meg questioned the Minister about the Transport Departments plans for improvements to trans-Pennine rail services. She highlighted not only the economic benefits that such links would bring to the region, but particularly the need to relieve the pressures on the roads between South Yorkshire and the north east. Meg called for Rosie Winterton to press harder for greater attention to east-west links, rather than the ever present focus on the north-south connections to London.


The Committee then moved to discuss the region’s economy. Meg wanted to focus on the community organisations that provide training, courses and educational assistance to get people in poorer communities into work, such as the forum in Gleadless Valley and Lowedges, within her constituency. She called for greater eligibility for funding for community organisations that provide such great services.


It was the first time in 700 years that Parliament has met in Yorkshire. The last time being in 1298 in York, when Edward I discussed the threat of William Wallace.
