[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Housing (12 Nov 2008)

Matthew Taylor: There is a massive crisis in CABs—at least in rural communities, although I cannot speak for urban areas—especially in recruitment and funding. I hope that Ministers will consider that, because at the time when CABs are most needed, they are most threatened.

[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Housing (12 Nov 2008)

Matthew Taylor: I shall concentrate on specific measures that could help to resolve the problems that have been so well set out by those who have already spoken. As the Minister knows, I was asked to report to the Government on rural housing need. The report was produced in July, and I am glad to say that it received a lot of support from the Government. We now await a response. I will not go through the 48...

[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Housing (12 Nov 2008)

Matthew Taylor: There is room for buying some. I simply sound a note of caution about how far that policy is taken. There was another point in the hon. Gentleman's comments, to which I shall return at the end, about how more flexible approaches might be taken. It is important that the estates we build are mixed. The lessons of the past are that, in the long run, large rented estates create problems of their...

Opposition Day — [20th Allotted Day]: Economic Crisis (10 Nov 2008)

Matthew Taylor: Will the Minister confirm that the inter-bank lending guarantee has failed to deliver the intended solution—to bring down LIBOR to the rate that existed before the banking crisis?

Opposition Day — [20th Allotted Day]: Economic Crisis (10 Nov 2008)

Matthew Taylor: There are serious shortages of affordable housing, and fewer houses are being built at the moment. Government policy instructs local councils to reduce the leasing of private properties in order to house people in housing need, on the basis that that is a temporary solution. Right now, a temporary solution of that sort would help to meet not only the housing needs of a large number of people,...

Written Answers — Home Department: Alcoholic Drinks: Crime (6 Nov 2008)

Matthew Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) cautions and (b) arrests were recorded for alcohol-related offences in (i) the St Austell and Truro district, (ii) Cornwall and (iii) England in the last eight quarters for which records are available.

Public Bill Committee: Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Bill [Lords]: New Clause 2 (16 Oct 2008)

Matthew Taylor: I certainly echo the Minister on that last point. One has to be aware that the banks have effectively treated this money as capital, not as a normal deposit fund with the associated costs. Over time, those dormant accounts are transferred and in effect treated as part of the capital base of the bank. That money is of more significant value to them than this. If only 10 per cent. of banks have...

Public Bill Committee: Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Bill [Lords]: New Clause 2 (16 Oct 2008)

Matthew Taylor: These dormant accounts have been enormously valuable to the banks and the truth is that they were an unwritten, unannounced, highly profitable source of effectively free money for them over a huge period. The growing awareness of that has led other countries and this Government to take action. Bluntly, it is hard to understand why such a practice should have continued. It seems better to put...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Dolphins (9 Oct 2008)

Matthew Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what research his Department has commissioned on the (a) stranding and (b) death of dolphins in the last three years; and what plans he has to commission further such research.

Affordable Housing (8 Oct 2008)

Matthew Taylor: Just before coming to the debate I spoke at the same conference, where people have been in break-out meetings during the day. Key to the points that my hon. Friend the Member for St. Ives (Andrew George) has made is the fact that, as my report reflects, there is consensus that Government leadership is needed on the issues addressed. That consensus exists among people at the conference and...

Affordable Housing (8 Oct 2008)

Matthew Taylor: The financial crisis has, of course, made home buying less affordable, because deposit requirements have gone up as, effectively, have interest rates, particularly for first-time buyers, notwithstanding today's announcement. The new Homes and Communities Agency will have substantial funds, but it has a huge job in delivering the Government's affordable homes targets because of the fall in...
