Friend the Member for Lewes (Maria Caulfield) for securing this debate and giving the House an opportunity to discuss letting agent fees and tenants’ deposits in the private rented sector.

Housing and Planning Bill: Neighbourhood right of appeal (3 May 2016)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: The first thing I want to say about the planning section of the Bill is that it is a pity that it has not had more resonance in the public realm, because it is bringing about far-reaching changes to the planning system that many local communities should be concerned about. Two issues that I will highlight are the extensive use of permission in principle on brownfield sites and the contracting...

Housing and Planning Bill: What is a starter home? (3 May 2016)

James Cartlidge: .... They include a significant involvement in shared ownership, which it is almost impossible not to speak about in such a debate. I want to focus on starter homes, on how they interact with other affordable home ownership products and, more importantly, on how they will affect my constituents. I am intrigued by the idea, in amendment 1, that someone would repay the 20% discount over 20...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Warrants: notification by Judicial Commissioner (3 May 2016)

Robert Buckland: I have listened with great care to the arguments of the hon. and learned Lady. I absolutely agree that, where a serious error has occurred in the use of investigatory powers, the commissioner should be able to inform those affected. We have clause 198(1) to deal with that. However, I do not agree with the principle that as a matter of course, everyone or anyone subject to the use of a lawful...

Black and Minority Ethnic People: Workplace Issues - Motion to Take Note (3 May 2016)

Lord Bilimoria: My Lords, one of the top two issues in the forthcoming EU referendum is immigration. Sadly, it is immigration in a negative way. Four years ago, I was proud to lead a debate in this House entitled Minority Ethnic and Religious Communities: Cultural and Economic Contribution. There were 26 speakers in that debate. I am proud to be the first Zoroastrian Parsee to sit in your Lordships’...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: General definitions (3 May 2016)

Joanna Cherry: I am interested in the Solicitor General’s point about legal executives or paralegals.

Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust - Statement (3 May 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: My Lords, a number of serious questions have been asked. I shall make a personal observation.

They have 250 separate locations with over 1 million patient contacts every year. The risk inherent in...

Trade Union Bill - Commons Amendments (3 May 2016)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I, too, must apologise for being a little late. I was brought up on the good trade union tradition that an agreement on procedure is an agreement, although clearly it was not this afternoon. I want to add a couple of comments to the important speeches that we have already heard—particularly those from the Cross Benches—and to what the noble Lord, Lord King, said. We are...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: National security notices (3 May 2016)

Keir Starmer: The amendments go in pairs: amendments 853 and 854 are to clause 216, amendments 845 and 855 to clause 217 and amendments 852 and 859 to clause 220. They all have the same purpose and intent: to subject the powers in the clauses to the double-lock mechanism—in other words, to involve the judicial commissioners in those powers. Clause 216 is concerned with national security notices....
