Campaign Responses

Please find below responses to campaigns which Darren has received which he believes should be available for everyone to see:

Environment Bill

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about the recent amendments to the Environment Bill regarding sewage and holding water companies to account.

Debt Relief

Problem debt is often difficult to escape and can have a devastating impact on existing issues including family problems and poor mental health. It is only right that people who fall into problem debt are helped to find a sustainable, long-lasting plan to solve their debt problems.

Healthcare Staff and Immigration

I couldn’t agree with you more that we have seen courageous and heroic efforts made by front-line staff, in Broxtowe and across the country, during this pandemic and we owe them an immense debt of gratitude.  



I understand concerns about the protection and health of British waters and I understand the impact that super trawlers have on marine life. Our waters must be managed sustainably and carefully.

Fur Trade

I am proud that we have some of the highest welfare standards in the world. In addition to fur farming being banned in the UK, I am pleased to note that the import of fur products is tightly regulated. It is illegal to import furs derived from cats or dogs, or products made from them.

Coronavirus Act 2020

Thank you for contacting me about the emergency legislation introduced in response to Coronavirus. First and foremost, I must state that all measures in the Coronavirus Act are temporary and proportionate to the threat we face.

Support for the Road Haulage Sector

I wholly appreciate the challenges that this pandemic has presented to the road haulage sector and please rest assured that I am greatly appreciative of the role that road hauliers are playing in the national effort to the fight Coronavirus.
