Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 Mar 2015)

Nick Raynsford: I am pleased to follow the right hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Sir John Stanley), not least because, although we come from different political persuasions, he is the Member of the House I have known the longest, in that we both attended the same school more than 55 years ago. I recall inviting him to see examples of bad housing in the area of west London, where I worked in the late...

Nick Raynsford: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what estimate his Department made of the number of starter homes that could be provided on sites in commercial or industrial use that (a) were otherwise unlikely to be brought forward for residential purposes and (b) are not currently identified for residential development but which might be brought forward as a windfall...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Building of Homes for Social Rent (16 Mar 2015)

Nick Raynsford: I draw attention to my interests in the register. As the Minister clearly has difficulty with the figures, may I remind him that the highly authoritative UK housing review, published last week, shows very clearly the figures for the number of new social rented homes started in this country in each of the years from 2009-10 to 2013-14? In 2009-10, the last year of the previous Government,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (16 Mar 2015)

Nick Raynsford: This will be the last Communities and Local Government question that I shall ask. May I therefore surprise the Government by congratulating them on introducing measures to require the installation of smoke alarms in all privately rented housing, but—there is a sting in the tail—may I also ask them to explain why it took them so long to reach that decision, given that their own impact...

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 1 — Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (10 Mar 2015)

Nick Raynsford: I, too, intend to speak about the provisions on short-term lettings. I very much endorse the views that were ably expressed by my hon. Friends and by the hon. Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Mark Field). There is cross-party agreement and I fail to understand why the Government are proceeding with a measure which, as my hon. Friend the Member for Hammersmith (Mr Slaughter)...

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 1 — Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (10 Mar 2015)

Nick Raynsford: I did not quite follow the Minister’s argument. He accepted the fact that London is different and that there is strong feeling about it in London, but he proceeded to say that the Government therefore want to make London like the rest of the country. I am afraid that that is a non sequitur. If there is a problem in London, the Government must address it by accepting it and listening to the...

Public Bill Committee: House of Lords (Expulsion and Suspension) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Expulsion and suspension of members of the House of Lords (4 Feb 2015)

Nick Raynsford: I seem to recall the right hon. Gentleman sitting, probably in this position, in that Bill Committee and, on one occasion, enlivening our proceedings by observing the passage of a bird—I think it was a shag—outside. However, we should bring those happy memories to an end.

Public Bill Committee: House of Lords (Expulsion and Suspension) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 - Expulsion and suspension of members of the House of Lords (4 Feb 2015)

Nick Raynsford: I shall not detain the Committee for long. The right hon. Member for North West Hampshire said that this would be one of the last Public Bill Committees of this Parliament—or, indeed, for ever, for some of us. I have a certain wry amusement because I was in this seat, in this very Committee Room, just two weeks ago and there was a confident assumption that we were attending the very last...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (2 Feb 2015)

Nick Raynsford: May I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests? This time last year, the Department published a consultation paper on the private rented sector that, among other items, proposed that the installation of working smoke alarms be mandatory. Since then, Ministers have repeatedly failed to meet their own—frequently deferred—deadlines for saying...
