Vince Cable accuses PM of supprressing "inconvenient" reports

Vince Cable has accused Theresa May of suppressing nine reports into immigration when she was Home Secretary because “they were inconvenient.

The Twickenham MP and Lib Dem Leader claims that the reports showed immigration to have very little impact on wages or employment.

In a statement, he says “overseas workers have been complimentary rather than competitive to British workers.”

The reports happened while he was working as the business secretary in the coalition government.

His full statement read:
"When I was business secretary there were up to nine studies that we looked at that took in all the academic evidence.

It showed that immigration had very little impact on wages or employment. But this was suppressed by the Home Office under Theresa May, because the results were inconvenient.

I remember it vividly. Overwhelmingly it has been the case that overseas workers have been complimentary rather than competitive to British workers.

The exodus of trades people, NHS staff and tech industry workers shows the potential damage of an extreme Brexit."

Richmond Council says it has listened over Twickenham Riverside

Feedback from residents who took part in the summer consultation on the future of Twickenham Riverside is now being fed into the designs.

In June and July, residents were asked for their views on the latest proposals regarding the future of the King Street/Water Lane/Embankment site.

The designs were based on the most favoured option presented in the previous 2016 consultation; a building on King Street / Water Lane and a second building facing the Embankment and Diamond Jubilee Gardens with a wide open space facing onto the River.

Residents were specifically asked for their views on three areas; landscaping, parking, servicing and access, and ground floor building uses.

The feedback from the survey and drop-in sessions has now been evaluated and the Council is publishing the report detailing the key messages.

In terms of landscaping, residents preferred the convex steps up to the new development from the Embankment, and a more ‘informal’ design for the area up to Diamond Jubilee Gardens from the Embankment.

The proposed uses for the ground floor comprising retail towards King Street and restaurant / café on the Embankment with business / community uses through Water Lane were also broadly supported.

Some respondents raised concerns regarding the scale of the Embankment building and the Council says it is looking at ways to address this.

It says there was a mix of views on the style of architecture and how that could be developed to be in-keeping with the area, reflecting the range of styles in Twickenham and recognising the influence of the River Thames in the history and future of the town.

Parking in the wider Twickenham area was also raised by a number of people during the consultation.

The Council says it understands residents’ concerns about parking on the Embankment.

Previous studies have shown the Embankment parking to be "well used and at times under pressure."

Parking in this area is outside the site boundary for the Planning Application for proposals on the riverside, however a study will be commissioned looking at parking across central Twickenham.

The feedback from this consultation is now being fed into a final design for the site, which will be consulted on later this year, ahead of a Planning Application being submitted before Christmas.

Campaign launched to save historic Ridgway Stables in Wimbledon

A last ditch campaign has been launched to try and save historic stables in Wimbledon Village from closure.

Ridgway Stables, which is the only riding school in the Village, has been in The Ridgway since the 1800s.

But the lease cannot be renewed by the current manager, as the owner of the private land will not consent to it.

The Village is already in crisis, having lost 33 small businesses in 2 years due to rising rents and parking costs.

5,000 people have so far signed a petition to keep the stables open. Campaigner Adrian Mills has this plea for the landowner.

The number of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning cases has increased in the UK, but has decreased in Surrey

Campaign group 'SHOUT' tracked the number of A&E attendees with suspected Carbon Monoxide poisoning and found the number across the UK had increased.

500 cases were reported last year alone for people under the age of 18.

But things have improved in Surrey, with 29% less cases in the last 12 months compared to 2014-15 figures.

Children are particularly susceptible to the deadly gas, as you can’t see it, smell it, or taste it. The only way to identify CO poisoning is by an alarm.

A prison reform charity has spoken out against the number of additional days of imprisonment handed to inmates in London and the South East

Prisoners in London and the South East were handed more than two hundred years in additional days of imprisonment last year.

Additional days are imposed for breaking prison rules, disobedience and disrespect.

The Howard League for Penal Reform, who produced the figures, say that added days in prison are counter-productive and should be scrapped.

In England and Wales there was a seventy five percent rise in extra days over two years, costing the taxpayers about £27 million.

Scotland, however, abolished additional days ten years ago. Scottish prisons have become safer since the change.
