West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper, following a visit to Crow Orchard Primary School in Skelmersdale meeting pupils and staff, said:
“It was a real pleasure to meet the pupils and staff of Crow Orchard primary school.
“Clearly the year 3 class I met were extremely enthusiastic about the current biography project. Their questions to me showed they understand what makes an interesting biography.
“The topical discussion with the pupil parliament members was well-informed and interesting. It was evident that we have a shared desire for how each of us can help to improve our community and do so by working together.
“Thank you to everyone at the school for such an enjoyable visit.”

Following the announcement that Jonathan Parry has been dismissed as chief executive of Southport and Ormskirk NHS Hospital Trust for gross misconduct, West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Having read the hospital trusts statement, Jonathan Parry’s dismissal isn’t really a shock. Reading there were 21 allegations of misconduct with seven counts of gross misconduct is shocking however.
“Without knowing the details of the investigation it appears only the willingness of whistleblowers to speak out brought this behaviour to an end. Coming forward couldn’t have been easy.
“After a year-long investigation there are many questions people have about the length of time and cost and these questions will be asked.
“However, now the decision has been taken it is important the hospital trust gets a new talented chief executive. One committed to the interests of West Lancashire patients and with a passion to deliver the best quality health care for this community.
“We know there are major financial and organisational challenges facing our NHS and I want to work with the new chief executive and their new executive team to protect our local hospital services.”

Rosie Cooper MP today supported National Adoption Week and its campaign for people across Gloucestershire to #SupportAdoption.
The week is a national event, focussing on family finding for some of our most vulnerable children in the UK. It is also a chance to demystify and clarify the adoption process, reflect the challenges of adoptive parenting, share individual stories and showcase best practice. Nationwide supporters have been sharing their adoption stories and detailing how their lives have been affected on Facebook and Twitter.
Melissa Forbes-Murison, Manager of Adoption Match, said;
“Day in day out, using the Adoption Register for England, we make links for children seeking a permanent loving family with prospective adopters. The Adoption Register is the only statutory register of children and families awaiting adoptive placement. All councils and voluntary agencies are required to use the register. Since 2004 we have found families for 3356 children who may otherwise have never been found a permanent family. The Adoption Register has been used to aid family finding for nearly 20,000 children.
Rosie Cooper MP for West Lancashire said;
“National Adoption Week should remind all of us of the importance of finding families for some of our most vulnerable children in my constituency and across Lancashire. Local council social workers, voluntary adoption agencies and the statutory Adoption Register supporting them day in, day out, are doing everything possible to family find for vulnerable children.
"The Government has rightly made supporting adoption a priority. I am glad that all that can be done, is being done, to make sure local councils can place children with prospective adopters as quickly as practicable.”
