** Gwynne backs Labour pledge to make, buy and sell more in Britain
Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has backed the Labour party’s pledge to make, buy and sell more in Britain.
Labour have unveiled a plan to raise standards, award more public contracts to British businesses and bring the jobs of the future to the UK. Labour will use the social and environmental stretch clauses in public contracts to raise standards, mirroring the approach taken in other countries including France and the US.
Labour’s new proposal will seize the opportunities for the long term of the post-pandemic, post-Brexit economy and help to shape a more secure future for Britain, especially in the green and tech sectors of the future.
Labour will make more in Britain by giving more public contracts to British companies, big and small, by:
* Asking every public body to give more contracts to British firms big and small, using social, environmental and labour clauses in contracts.
* Passing a law requiring public bodies to report on how much they are buying from British businesses including SMEs.
* Leading a culture change in government, putting the growth of local industries first, and reviewing the pipeline of all major infrastructure projects to explore how to increase the materials made in Britain, upskill workers to get the jobs of the future.
Labour will help bring jobs of the future to Britain, by:
* Investing in reshoring jobs in the same way we invest in Foreign Direct Investment, by helping every business considering reshoring access the expertise and support they need.
* Working with colleges and universities to make sure we’re honing the skills and apprenticeships for the jobs of the future.
“I’m really proud to be backing this pledge. As we recover from the pandemic, we have a chance to build a fairer and better future for Britain.
Across Denton and Reddish there are so many incredible businesses that need our support, and Greater Manchester is leading the way in green tech and environmental solutions. It’s so important, therefore, that we make the most of this wealth of talent and give more public contracts to British companies, big and small.
We need to invest in Britain and bring security and resilience back to our economy. Labour is the only party with a credible plan to do so.”
** Gwynne welcomes loan support for local businesses
Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has welcomed the news that thousands of loans have been offered to local businesses across Denton and Reddish.
Recently released data from the British Business Bank shows that the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) and the Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) were utilised to offer 1,909 loans worth a total of £87,930,336 to local businesses in Denton and Reddish.
Businesses in the North West reported the largest usage of CBILs and BBLS (11%) outside of London and the South East. The data also provides analysis of loan uptake across sectors with construction (17%) and wholesale and retail (15%) receiving the highest proportion of total loans.
Speaking after assessing the data, Gwynne said:
“The last year has been so tough for local businesses, so I’m really glad to see that many businesses have been able to access support through these schemes.
Local business is the beating heart of a community, and if we want to see our high streets roaring back to life after the pandemic, we need to make sure we support them properly.
My priority now is to work with cross-party MPs to get the Government to commit to investing even more in our local communities, and to implement a green economic recovery programme with local business at the heart of it.”
** Gwynne celebrates nomination for Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care at NHS Parliamentary Awards
Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has congratulated Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust following the NHS Parliamentary Awards and their nomination in the Future NHS Category. This category recognises pioneering NHS teams which are building for the future.
The NHS Parliamentary Awards is run in conjunction with NHS England and enables MPs to nominate their local NHS and social care staff, volunteers and carers. Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care was nominated for the award by Gwynne and neighbouring MP for Stalybridge and Hyde, Jonathan Reynolds. Gwynne and Reynolds attended the ceremony with Liam Brierley – Senior Information Manager for Medicine, Urgent Care, Diagnostics and Community Services – representing the Trust.
Tameside and Glossop Integrated Trust serves a community of 250,000 people across Tameside and Glossop and aims to improve health outcomes by collaborating with local health and care partners.
The District Nursing Team and the Corporate Information Team within the trust were applauded for ensuring their service was fit for the future and for developing data dashboards to support clinical staff with improved visibility of caseloads. The District Nursing Complexity and Dependency Tool enabled clinical staff to facilitate safer and more effective management of patients in the community.
The Tameside and Glossop Trust were nominated as regional champions within the North West, but just missed out on the overall category award which went to Sunrise Neonatal Team at North Middlesex University Hospital.
Speaking after attending the awards ceremony which took place today in Central London, Gwynne said:
“I am so pleased that the hard work of staff in Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised at these awards. I want to thank the staff from the bottom of my heart for the incredible work they have done over the last year.
The District Nursing Complexity and Dependency Tool is such an innovative project and deserves national recognition. As we recover from the pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we give clinicians the tools to provide the right care at the right time to ensure the best outcome for patients.
Just to be shortlisted for this award is an achievement in itself. There were over 700 entries for this highly competitive category.
I’d also like to take a moment to congratulate all the other nominees across all categories at the NHS Parliamentary Awards. I felt very honoured to be invited to the ceremony, and it was great to see the unbelievable work that is going on across the entire NHS.”
