James Sunderland, who is a Vice Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Malaria, backs World Malaria Day to raise awareness of the continued importance of tackling this preventable and treatable disease that still kills a child almost every minute.
James Sunderland welcomes the fact that Bracknell is the 21st safest town in the UK (excluding Scotland) but highlights the need to do more to tackle issues such as antisocial driving. He also takes the opportunity to request the Minister to review the case of constituent Luke Ings, who is in prison under an IPP sentence, and calls for more resources for cold case reviews on cases such as the murder of 7-year-old Stacy Queripel that happened 29 years ago but with the killer still at large.
James Sunderland speaks up for the motorsport and heritage vehicle industries to raise concerns that the Government’s proposed new vehicle tampering offences are too broad and could impact those who legitimately restore, maintain and service historic and classic vehicles.
I write this on the train as I head into Westminster. Now that the dust has settled after the evacuation of British nationals and entitled personnel from Afghanistan, I wanted to provide some form of perspective as someone who has spent much of his working life dealing with that troubled country and to commend those from the FCDO and MOD for their hard work.
