Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: I am only interested in the lobbying of my constituents who have been so harshly affected. We have heard the stories of the 90% and 95% reductions in income. This has made things very much less expensive for the companies concerned. Where has that money gone? It has certainly not been invested in the programme.

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: Does my hon. Friend support making the alternative dispute resolution procedure mandatory?

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: I have been asked to vote for some pretty awful stuff over the past couple of years, but this has to be the most profoundly un-Conservative measure. It will compound the damage that was done to rights of property in 2017, and the proposal to amend the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 will extend that damage to other walks of our national life, fundamentally undermining our position as a stable...

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: Of course, and these are the very people—the hearts of our community—who are now identified as the villains whom the Bill creates more power to bring to heel. It is the most monstrous piece of legislation that has been brought before us, and we should deal with it accordingly. We had a functioning market in 2016, and in 2017 we brought in measures. Whitehall has destroyed that market,...

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: The hon. Member for St Albans (Daisy Cooper) intimated that people would want to take their land back as a consequence of the changes. I hope that she has identified that that is not possible. People will not get their land back unless they are going to develop it, and even then, they would have to go to court to get it.

Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill (26 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: The Secretary of State highlighted that the prices were once too high. Now we have had multiple complaints that the prices are too low. Clearly, the question of valuation is at the heart of the matter, so why did the Government explicitly exclude valuation from the scope of the consultation that preceded the Bill?

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Ground rent for existing long leases (24 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: What was the rationale for granting the exemption in the first place? Surely the Minister recognises that, for many people in the retirement sector, it will be in their financial interest to pay a lower purchase price and have a continual ground rent, rather than to pay a significantly greater capital sum upfront. Individual circumstances will of course differ.

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Ground rent for existing long leases (24 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: Has it occurred to the hon. Gentleman that for many purchasers it will be in their interests to pay a lower purchase price and pay a ground rent, rather than to have to pay a very much higher price at the outset?

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Ground rent for existing long leases (24 Jan 2022)

Desmond Swayne: I draw your attention, Madam Deputy Speaker, and the attention of the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I am deeply embarrassed about the way that the retirement living industry has been treated over the past few years in the progress to this Bill. In recognition of the significantly greater capital costs of building developments that have communal areas,...
