Joan Ryan MP has warned that plans for the M25 Junction 25 improvement scheme will fail to address the longstanding traffic and pollution problems in Enfield.

I am calling on Highways England to revise and review their modelling for the M25 Junction 25 improvement scheme, so that it does not exacerbate existing traffic problems along some of the busiest roads in Enfield.

In my submission to the Highways England consultation, I have raised serious concerns about the detrimental effect the improvement scheme could have on our local road network. Traffic modelling undertaken by Enfield Council has indicated that the scheme has the potential to make the current situation worse and increase the amount of traffic along the Great Cambridge Road and Bullsmoor Lane.

I agree that significant upgrades to the busy Junction 25 of the M25 are required, but the scheme must help to improve the congestion, pollution and noise issues which have blighted North East Enfield for many years.

When I and local residents met with the then Transport Secretary, Rt. Hon Sir Patrick McLoughlin MP, last July, he acknowledged that the planned works were not seen as a long-term solution to the current problems.

I urge Highways England to provide reassurances to local residents and Enfield Council that the proposed work will complement the on-going development of the Northern Gateway Access Package (NGAP) project - the programme to improve the transport infrastructure across North East Enfield - rather than being considered in isolation from it.

Improving the quality of life for people in our community is of paramount importance. Residents have every right to expect comprehensive measures to be put in place – like NGAP – and I will continue to fight for the improvements required for as long as it takes.

Joan Ryan MP has secured a 90 minute debate in Parliament to discuss the political and human rights situation in Turkey.

I am pleased to have secured a Westminster Hall debate on Thursday 9th March, to discuss the political and human rights situation in Turkey.

It has been over four and a half years since MPs have had a full debate in Parliament on issues relating to Turkey and so much has happened during that time.

Since the attempted coup last July, more than 10,000 people have been detained and over 100,000 people from the army, education sector, legal sector and civil service are reported to have been suspended or dismissed from their jobs. Greater restrictions have been imposed upon the right of assembly and the freedom of expression, including the targeting of media outlets and journalists. There have also been deeply concerning and widespread reports of human rights violations perpetrated against the minority Kurdish and Alevi communities. All of these issues, as well as the significance of the UK-Turkey bilateral relationship, will no doubt be discussed by MPs on the day. 

It is clear that there is a deep level of interest and concern amongst parliamentarians regarding the current situation in Turkey and I am pleased that MPs from all sides of the House of Commons have supported my debate application.

This debate will provide an important opportunity for Members of Parliament to consider the aftermath of last year’s attempted coup and the forthcoming national referendum in April on the new, draft constitution - the result of which could provide sweeping new powers to the Turkish President. 

It will also allow MPs to reaffirm their strong support for democracy, the rule of law and human rights in the country and to question the UK Government on how they will seek to promote these values in our important relationship with Turkey.
