Question regarding 10p tax
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said: “I have raised the issue on behalf of my constituents in meetings with both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of Exchequer on several occasions and am delighted that a result has been achieved which will ensure that no one is out of pocket as payments will be backdated."
“However, as a Parliamentary Private Secretary I am bound by the Ministerial Code of Conduct and I am therefore unable to sign motions or amendments.”
Question regarding Gordon Ramsay/Ofcom
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said: “I am immensely proud to have been elected as MP for West Lancashire, and that role includes making representations on behalf of my constituents both collectively and individually."
“I respond to all my constituents’ concerns, and the requests I receive for help are very diverse and cover a wide range of topics."
“For instance, I was asked by one constituent to make representations to the Mexican government calling upon them investigate the circumstances around singer Kirsty MacColl’s death."
“In addition, I have received many letters about the disgraceful way the Tory-controlled council left grieving families for years without a place to bury their loved ones. I took up the fight on behalf of those residents and I have now delivered a successful result."
“It is important that people feel they can contact me about issues in the knowledge that their views and concerns will be raised with the appropriate authorities."
“With regard to the representations I have received regarding the Gordon Ramsay allegations, I feel that we have a proud history of high-quality TV programmes in this country and any allegations regarding their content should be investigated fully and if necessary the appropriate action taken.”
