Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation: First-tier Tribunals and Freeholders (24 Jul 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am delighted to be here this evening. There have been several obstacles to the debate taking place, but we are here none the less, and I am pleased to see the Minister in the Chamber. I secured the debate to highlight some of the things that seem to have gone terribly wrong with the property tribunal procedures. We know that the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation: First-tier Tribunals and Freeholders (24 Jul 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point about the advice available to individuals who seek redress in law and where they might seek it. As I will go on to explain, the playing field is not at all level in these tribunals. I hope that the Minister will comment on that later.

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation: First-tier Tribunals and Freeholders (24 Jul 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The hon. Gentleman make a good point. He is quite correct that these tribunals are supposed to be an informal means of dispute resolution, although it is thought appropriate for people to have some legal advice if they need it. However, we now regularly see highly specialist barristers and even QCs appearing for landlords before what are often part-time solicitor judges in what are meant to...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation: First-tier Tribunals and Freeholders (24 Jul 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My hon. Friend makes an interesting point. It is very dispiriting to see charities and other institutions that one imagines would be on the side of morality and fairness being caught up with offshore tax evaders and individuals who are unscrupulously taking money from leaseholders hand over fist and not actually looking after the building. Some institutions and individual organisations that...

Standards: Summer Adjournment (24 Jul 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak briefly in this debate. The Government have moved positively on a number of issues recently. Last Thursday, for example, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government made not one but two announcements that were very welcome—albeit late, but not on his watch. First, he announced a full-scale review of approved document...

Immigration Detention: Shaw Review: Points of Order (24 Jul 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. I believe that yesterday Mr Speaker received an email from a law firm, Trowers & Hamlins, which represents Octagon Overseas Ltd and Mr John Christodoulou in enforcement action against leaseholders at Canary Riverside in my constituency. The law firm asked for my Adjournment debate scheduled for later today—“First tier tribunals, section...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My hon. Friend is a well-known champion of rail freight transportation, and in his speech he made the case quite well for the construction of a national link. Were there to be a lower Thames crossing, obviously one would expect the authorities, local, regional and national, to get the biggest bang for the taxpayer’s pound, to ensure that we get the maximum benefit. I am sure that, as...

Backbench Business - Improving Air Qualitybackbench Business (28 Jun 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The hon. Lady makes a very good point. The Minister may well be able to say what access there will be for both pedestrians and cyclists. We have two tunnels in east London. In the Blackwall tunnel there is no capacity for either pedestrians or cyclists, given the volumes of traffic and the narrowness of the verges. The Rotherhithe tunnel, which is even smaller and was constructed in the late...
