Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: I think the Minister accepts that the Liberal Democrats believe there should be automatic exemptions for some of the people currently receiving discretionary housing payment, and does he not accept that if we automatically exempt people who are currently getting DHP the net effect on the public purse is zero?

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: I tried to intervene on the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) to ask her whether Labour would reduce under-occupation by adopting a policy that involved evicting people living in under-occupied accommodation. Does the Minister accept that if we do not remove the spare room subsidy, the only alternative open to Labour if it wanted to reduce under-occupation would be to go round...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: I am aware of the proposal to transfer housing benefit money to local authorities with a view to building more properties. Let me ask this: what pays the rent of the people who are already in tenanted accommodation while the new properties are being built with that money?

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: I refer the hon. Lady to the answer that the then housing Minister, the late Malcolm Wicks, gave to a question from the hon. Member for The Cotswolds (Geoffrey Clifton-Brown) in Hansard in 2004: “We hope to implement a flat rate housing benefit system in the social sector, similar to that anticipated in the private rented sector to enable people in that sector to benefit from the...

John Hemming: rose—

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: We have found in the west midlands that private landlords are often willing to take people on housing benefit if they have a 6 Towns type of account that reserves the funds. There is a solution in the system as it stands. Perhaps that needs to be investigated. Obviously, 6 Towns does not operate across the country, but perhaps there are solutions that can be found within the current policy.

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: I am pleased to follow the hon. Member for Aberdeen South (Dame Anne Begg), the Chair of the Select Committee, who raises a number of interesting points. A number of those were debated in the private Member’s Bill introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for St Ives (Andrew George), the Affordable Homes Bill, which proposed a number of changes to the social sector criteria—the...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: I personally think that it would be harsh to go around evicting everybody who is under-occupying although, that happens when people try to succeed to a tenancy; they are told that they cannot do so because the property is too big. I do not think that overcrowding is taken sufficiently seriously. Malcolm Wicks highlighted in his memoirs how he argued, when a Labour Housing Minister, for the...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: I thank the hon. Lady for that intervention, but my reading of all the documents, including those memoirs, is different from hers. It was not about an incentive to move, which I do not think anyone would criticise. I think that his proposals were very similar to those that have been adopted by this Government, as seen in the written parliamentary questions.

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: The hon. Gentleman makes a valid point. The scheme for working out how much space people need and paying them for it was introduced in the private sector many years ago. The Opposition will make the valid point that they did not make it retrospective, but the Government then say that if we want to deal with overcrowding and the like, this is one of the difficulties. Speaking personally, I...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: From a sedentary position, the Minister says, “1 million a day”, which is about the order of magnitude that we were talking about. A policy can have more than one objective. It can be designed to save money and also to deal with overcrowding. This year, I have not had anyone in my office complaining about social services criteria, but I often get people complaining about...

Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

John Hemming: In my constituency, I was aware of a family of four living in a one-bedroom flat who wanted to transfer out of that into better accommodation.
