Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Communities and Local Government: State Retirement Pensions 10 Apr 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment he has made of the financial effect on local authorities when the single tier state pension is introduced in 2016-17 and local authorities no longer receive a national insurance rebate from the contracting out of pensions.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Revenue Support Grants 7 Apr 2014

    Newcastle has four times as many looked-after children as Wokingham, but because of the unfair way in which this Government have distributed the cuts, even on the Minister’s own measure of spending power per household, Newcastle will have less funding than Wokingham by the end of this Parliament. How can he tell us that that is fair?

    To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to the Government Response to Lord Heseltine's report No Stone Unturned: in Pursuit of Growth, when he expects to publish a draft legislative reform order to ensure that the current legislation on combined authorities is fit for purpose.
