Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Private Members’ Bills (22 Jan 2015)

Hugh Bayley: In 23 years as a Member of the House I have never been fortunate enough to have my name come up in the ballot for a private Member’s Bill, and I do not think that as a legislator I should have to wait a generation for an active chance to legislate in this House on behalf of my constituents. Will the Leader of the House set up a working party, which includes my hon. Friend the Member for...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) (2 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: Perhaps I should start by looking at the Order Paper. We are being asked tonight to approve for the current year a reduction of defence expenditure—or, I should say, a further reduction of defence expenditure—of £618 million. I hope that, in his response, the Minister will say on which capabilities the Ministry of Defence was planning to spend at the start of the year have now been...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) (2 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: I would always like greater attention to be given to the Parliamentary Assembly’s work, but there is a good crossover of membership between our UK delegation to the Assembly and the Select Committee on Foreign Affairs, the Select Committee on Defence and the Select Committee on International Development. As a result, there is a cross-fertilisation of ideas and I know that colleagues on the...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) (2 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: I have had an interesting conversation with the statisticians in the House of Commons Library this afternoon. They provided figures for me in April of last year that showed spending as a proportion of GDP increasing from 2.48% in 1997-98 to 2.81% in 2009-10. Those are the Defence Analytical Services and Advice, or DASA, figures produced by the Minister of Defence. More...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) (2 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: I will crack on quickly, Mr Deputy Speaker. I have put my name to the early-day motion drafted by the hon. Member for Mid Worcestershire (Sir Peter Luff), which calls for the 2% commitment to be maintained. However, like the hon. Member for South Dorset (Richard Drax), I do not believe that that is enough. I believe that we should be increasing our defence spending as a proportion of GNP. I...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Ministry of Defence — Defence and Security Review (NATO) (2 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: I am getting slightly tired of Government Members talking up 2% as if it were a great achievement. Five years ago it was 2.5%, so the defence budget has been cut over the past five years by 20%. When Labour came to power it was £22 billion. When we left power, the defence budget in cash terms was £39 billion; now it is £34 billion—a real-terms cut. When are these cuts going to stop?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Membership (Renegotiation) (3 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: The Conservative manifesto at the last general election states: “European countries need to work together to boost global economic growth, fight global poverty, and combat global climate change. The European Union has a crucial part to play…A Conservative government will play an active and energetic role in the European Union to advance these causes.” Will that be the Conservative...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: I want to start by talking about the people who have come to my surgeries, desperate—usually as a last resort—looking for somewhere to live. They are people whom, more often than not, I fail: the rough sleepers—[Interruption.]

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: They are the rough sleepers, for example, whose numbers have increased by 55% under this Government; the homeless, whose numbers have increased by 26%; sofa surfers; adult children and grandchildren still living with their parents or grandparents; and families in grossly overcrowded conditions. York has one of the strongest economies in the north of England. Under the Labour Government the...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: My hon. Friend is right, although it is not only public sector workers who are on zero-hours contracts; such contracts affect a lot of people who provide essential services. Every time we go into a shop, we are buying something we need from a private sector worker. During my time, York has never built enough affordable housing, and that is my biggest regret—I might say my biggest...

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (4 Mar 2015)

Hugh Bayley: Right: I will work with the hon. Gentleman in the few weeks that I have left as an MP, and with my right hon. Friend the Member for Oxford East (Mr Smith). One thing that the Government and local authorities must deliver is more land for housing. Critically, York needs to agree a local plan to designate where development will be permitted. That has not happened for decades under successive...
