John Healey: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, when he plans to publish the Building Safety Bill.

Grenfell Tower Inquiry: Phase 1 Report (21 Jan 2020)

John Healey: This is a grave and important debate. I welcome the Government time for it, but I regret that the Prime Minister is not here to lead it. The public inquiry into Grenfell reports to him; it is the Prime Minister’s responsibility. A national disaster on the scale of the dreadful Grenfell tower fire demands a national response, on a similar scale. That has not happened, and that too is the...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry: Phase 1 Report (21 Jan 2020)

John Healey: I do indeed welcome the ban, which we argued for for some time. It was something the Hackitt report did not recommend, but Ministers wisely decided that they would not follow that recommendation. It is a no-brainer that we should not be putting combustible cladding on the sides of buildings in that way. I welcome some of the action that has been taken. I know that the Secretary of State is...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry: Phase 1 Report (21 Jan 2020)

John Healey: My right hon. Friend anticipates the argument I was going to move on to. For such leaseholders, the situation he outlines assumes that they can sell in the first place and that the wannabe buyer can get a mortgage. Many are finding now that they are trapped in these blocks. Some of the steps the Secretary of State is now taking may help with this, but, fundamentally, there is a serious flaw...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry: Phase 1 Report (21 Jan 2020)

John Healey: That is precisely why new legislation is required to enable action where it is needed. [Interruption.] The hon. Gentleman grimaces, but I take the argument and the principle from a recommendation of the Select Committee of which he was a member, which said in a unanimous report that for privately owned residential homes, if a landlord ultimately will not keep the properties up to scratch, a...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry: Phase 1 Report (21 Jan 2020)

John Healey: I will not give way anymore; I am going to end my speech because a lot of people wish to speak in the debate. Post election, the Government and the Prime Minister have a majority, but with that mandate comes responsibility. We in the Labour party will continue to hold the Government hard to account for their continued failings following Grenfell. More widely, I say in particular to the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Buildings: Insulation (21 Jan 2020)

John Healey: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to his oral contribution of 5 September 2019, Official Report, col 373, how many owners of buildings with dangerous ACM cladding have been named and shamed.

Building Safety (20 Jan 2020)

John Healey: I thank the Secretary of State for an advance copy of his statement this afternoon. The Secretary of State will remember, as we all do, the shocking disbelief and grief in the immediate aftermath of the dreadful Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017, and he will remember, as I do, the solemn undertakings from all parts of this House to make sure that such a fire could never happen again. I never...

John Healey: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, when he plans to publish proposals on energy efficiency standards for work carried out in existing dwellings.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Building Better, Building Beautiful (13 Jan 2020)

John Healey: May I welcome the Secretary of State back? Given the turnover of Housing Ministers, I trust that his first oral questions in the post will not also be his last. The Conservatives’ failure on planning is at the heart of their failure on housing. Their permitted development loophole lets developers sidestep the planning rules and build modern-day slum housing. It has been in place for four...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Building Better, Building Beautiful (13 Jan 2020)

John Healey: For the record, the number of new social rented homes is at a near record low. Rather than the net additions that the Secretary of State talks about, the Conservative-led Local Government Association says that this policy has led directly to 13,500 fewer new affordable homes. It hits at the heart of the Tory failure on housing: the rules are loosened so that big builders profit while renters...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

John Healey: Or else?

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

John Healey: The interest in this debate and the abbreviated speeches that people have been forced to make underline the fact that this must be only the start of this House’s debates on the results and findings of the phase 1 report that was published today. I thank Sir Martin Moore-Bick and his staff for the huge amount of work that they have done on the first phase of the inquiry, and I thank all...
