Regulation of Property Agents (18 Oct 2017)

Peter Bottomley: The all-party parliamentary group on leasehold and commonhold reform, which I co-chair along with the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick), will be grateful for the Minister’s remarks. We will submit more evidence. I put it to the Minister that it will be quite important for people to be able to submit their evidence to the consultation confidentially. There are so...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Gaming Machines: Tax Yields (18 Oct 2017)

Peter Bottomley: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, in which year there were first references in his Department's publications to actual and anticipated public revenues from the use of fixed-odds betting terminals in high street premises; and if he will estimate the public revenues in each of the last 15 years, together with the estimates for the next three years, if the maximum stake on such terminals...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Instalment Credit (9 Oct 2017)

Peter Bottomley: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what information his Department holds on changes in the level of use of personal contracts for agreements in the last five years; what assessment he has made of the reasons for those changes; and if he will extend the provisions of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 to enable full payment ahead of time to personal contract hire agreements; and if he will make...

Schools: National Funding Formula: Points of Order (14 Sep 2017)

Peter Bottomley: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Following on from the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Wellingborough (Mr Bone) during the statement on school funding, would it be appropriate or possible to put on record the names of the four Labour Back Benchers who were kindly present at the end of the statement? We have to assume that all the rest were happy.

Schools: National Funding Formula (14 Sep 2017)

Peter Bottomley: I welcome the changes to a system that was unfair, opaque and out of date. I am glad that the Secretary of State has listened to the headteachers, the governors, the MPs and the parents, who have asked that no school should be left behind and that those that have been dramatically underfunded should be able to catch up within two years, and I am glad that she has lifted the cap on the...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Commonhold and Leasehold (11 Sep 2017)

Business of the House (20 Jul 2017)

Peter Bottomley: Early-day motion 189 on Krishna Maharaj’s federal evidentiary hearing in Florida has the support of many Members. [That this House recalls parliamentary support over 20 years for Florida and the US’ reviews of the 1987 murder convictions and sentencing of British citizen Krishna Maharaj, born on 26 January 1939, including asking for the overturning of the initial death sentence,...

Contaminated Blood (20 Jul 2017)

Peter Bottomley: The letter from the hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull North (Diana Johnson) started by expressing gratitude to the Government for the progress made so far. That would have been welcome decades ago, but it is right to acknowledge it now. The letter included three practical points that it put perhaps slightly better than the shadow Minister. The machinery of government cannot work overnight...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Voter Registration and Boundary Commission Review (20 Jul 2017)

Peter Bottomley: It is perfectly reasonable for students and others to be registered in two places if they are normally resident in both. Does the hon. Lady agree that it would be sensible to check one in 100 late registrations to see whether they are double-registered and whether double voting has taken place? That would give us more scope to determine whether and how much fraud took place at the last election.

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Peter Bottomley: The House will know that I was not here for most of the debate, but I would like to join the hon. Member for Hartlepool (Mike Hill) and send best wishes from this side of the House to Rodney Bickerstaffe, who I knew in my various roles. I congratulate the hon. Gentleman and his supporters on doubling the majority of his predecessor. The House will look forward to many more contributions from...

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Peter Bottomley: I hope that my right hon. Friend will accept that the West Sussex MPs who have been working with heads and parents will welcome the progress in her statement. May I say on behalf of the Back Benchers, perhaps the Parliamentary Private Secretary and the Minister for School Standards that we have all worked together and hope to continue doing so to get even more progress in future?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Housebuilding (17 Jul 2017)

Peter Bottomley: Balancing supply and demand requires successful developers and confident buyers. Will my right hon. Friend bring in the owners of the freeholds, who are making a misery of the lives of people in leasehold houses, and the developers who are trying to put things right? People such as Adriatic, frankly, look like modern-day robbers.

Chris Gibb Report: Improvements to Southern Railway (4 Jul 2017)

Peter Bottomley: We heard nothing from the Opposition Front Bench about the patients, teachers, pupils and clinical staff whose lives have been wrecked as they have been forced from rail to road, which is far more dangerous. We need to get the railways working properly so that they are all safe and all can rely on them.

Economy and Jobs (29 Jun 2017)

Peter Bottomley: My right hon. Friend has dealt with amendment (l). Let me now turn to a non-party-political initiative, led by the hon. Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy) and me, and by most other Members on both sides of the House, and the discussions that we have been having with the Government about the question of the women in Northern Ireland and whether only the poor should be denied lawful...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (29 Jun 2017)

Peter Bottomley: This House never intended vulnerable people in less-well-off areas to lose £100 several times a minute on fixed odds betting terminals. When will we have the opportunity to bring the stake down to £2?

Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Peter Bottomley: I am intervening, at the suggestion earlier of the Leader of the House, having spent three and a half hours in the Chamber. This debate is largely about housing, but is it possible for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State to hold a debate on leasehold? He could then look at whether the Government can intervene on the Mundy decision, which affects the extension of the leases of 2...

Business of the House (22 Jun 2017)

Peter Bottomley: May we have a debate in Government time on housing, especially on leaseholds and commonholds? The former Housing Minister, Gavin Barwell, who is now the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, wanted to reform LEASE, the Leasehold Advisory Service, paying attention to exploitation. It is time to do that with a debate on what the Government are going to do about Travellers. They have needs, but...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Peter Bottomley: There is a habit of some in the Labour party of making personal attacks on Conservative Prime Ministers. They did it with Ted Heath, they did it with Margaret Thatcher, and some tried to do it with our current Prime Minister. I think she has the common sense, resilience and sense of humour not to worry too much about that. It is far better that we understand that the leadership of the party...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Peter Bottomley: My hon. Friend might find it easier to speak less fast once this intervention has given him a few more seconds.
