Despite periodic reforms, practically every employer in each sector says that those who complete their formal training are still not...

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (24 May 2021)

Lord Stunell: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I welcome the Bill before us today. Although the scandalous problems currently facing leaseholders in homes covered in dangerous cladding materials will not be alleviated by it, as my noble friend Lady Pinnock so eloquently spelled out, and it will not in any way improve the lot of existing leaseholders faced with escalating ground rents and spurious charges...

Lord Stunell: During the passage of the Fire Safety Bill, the Minister repeatedly assured your Lordships that measures to protect leaseholders from cladding remediation costs would be coming forward in the building safety Bill and so would be out of place in that Bill, and at his fourth attempt, a majority of the House gave him the benefit of the doubt. Can he now confirm that the draft building safety...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 May 2021)

I am sorry to add yet more to the Minister’s workload at the wind-up, but I can at least start by welcoming the announcement that the building safety Bill will come before your Lordships’ House this Session. I urge the Government to give this Bill...

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (1 Mar 2021)

Lord Stunell: My Lords, I speak in support of Amendment 1, just moved by the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy. It is a real pleasure to follow him and his very measured and careful support for the need to tackle the issues on which I too will comment. I am disappointed that the Government and the Minister have not thought fit to take on board the range of sensible improvements put to your Lordships’ House in...

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (18 Jan 2021)

Lord Stunell: My Lords, the non-domestic rating Bill is a simple Bill but it has some important ramifications that I want the Minister to clarify in this debate.

As the Minister himself said, that has cost...

Construction Industry: Retention Payments - Question (14 Jan 2021)

Lord Stunell: The Minister’s answers so far have been deeply disappointing. Of course there is no consensus within the industry, because there are winners and losers.
