Walsall North MP Eddie Hughes yesterday submitted an application to Parliament for a 30 minute adjournment to discuss the sentencing of people convicted for causing death by dangerous driving. It is on the back of a campaign launched by the Express & Star calling for tougher action against killer drivers, which Mr Hughes, voted in last year, has publicly supported. The campaign, which has a petition with almost 2,000 signatures, was set up after two people were jailed for eight years each for killing victims on the road in the Black Country. Since the story, outrage was voiced by people including Darlaston Councillor Doug James and the families of people who have lost their lives due to dangerous drivers. Speaking last night, Mr Hughes said the issue would be raised during an adjournment and be put to a minister representing the Department for Justice, which is responsible for the courts. It comes as legalisation has been proposed by the ministry to increase the maximum … [Read more...] about Stop the Speeders: Eddie Hughes MP calls for action against killer drivers
Council bosses signed off on the £13.8 million purchase of the shopping centre last year, despite closing nine libraries and shedding hundreds of jobs in cost-cutting measures. The Labour-led authority says it hopes the deal will help turn around its financial woes and net it more than £10m in five years. But Walsall North's Tory MP Eddie Hughes, who is also a councillor for Streetly, has accused bosses of failing to adequately explain to the public how they expect the centre to turn a profit. His demand for details on the deal, submitted through a Freedom of Information request, was turned down by the authority on the grounds that it was not in the public interest. A furious Mr Hughes said: "At a time when people are deciding whether or not buying the centre is a good idea, the council is intent on withholding information. "They should be able to make a case explaining why this was a good investment, rather than coming up with reasons for holding the information back. … [Read more...] about Eddie Hughes MP: Walsall Council must come clean on Saddlers Centre deal

INDEPENDENT letting agency Regent Lettings Limited was acquired by Tim Hughes of Belvoir in September. Following a handover period, former owners Graeme and Gill Leech continue to own Regent Block Management in Newbury, where it remains business as usual. And they plan to spend more time in the New Forest, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire where they have family and other business interests, including a holiday let property, which they have recently developed. Mr and Mrs Leech would also like to thank all of their clients and customers, not only for their business over the last 10 years, but also for their friendship which they hope will continue, in many instances away from the property lettings arena. Mr Hughes opened Belvoir Lettings in 2014, after leaving the Army and a short spell working for charity. His aim was to provide a level of service to landlords that he had not been able to find when buying and renting out his own buy-to-let property in Reading. Belvoir Newbury has … [Read more...] about Belvoir boss Tim Hughes buys Regent Lettings agency
