Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Voter ID Pilots (27 Jun 2018)

Adam Holloway: Whether he has made an assessment of the operation of recent voter ID pilots; and if he will make a statement.

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Voter ID Pilots (27 Jun 2018)

Adam Holloway: Does the Minister agree that additional measures should be brought in, given that the issue affects the vulnerable, the elderly and, in my constituency, ethnic minorities?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Counter-extremism (4 Jun 2018)

Adam Holloway: What steps he is taking to tackle extremism.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Counter-extremism (4 Jun 2018)

Adam Holloway: My constituents will be absolutely aghast at the thought of people from organisations such as ISIS returning here. What steps can the Government take to prevent harm to our population by people from such organisations?

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Adam Holloway: I am going to speak about street homelessness, because what I observed recently in the seven days that I spent living on the streets of London and in my constituency was a very serious problem of accommodation for single men, and particularly single men who are mentally ill. Twenty seven years ago I did the same thing for several months, living as a homeless person but also a homeless...

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Housing and Homes (15 May 2018)

Adam Holloway: Absolutely. We have to segment the homeless as much as we can. The Prime Minister has made an extraordinary commitment to end street homelessness within 10 years, but if we are really serious about solving the problem, we have to see people as individuals. We have to differentiate between different groups. We have to accept that some people have made a lifestyle choice. We have to ask whether...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Periodic reports on exercise of power to make regulations under section 1 (1 May 2018)

Adam Holloway: Does the right hon. Lady agree that corruption also costs lives and violates people’s human rights?

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: I thank the Minister and the shadow Minister for their speeches, and the hon. Member for Stroud (Dr Drew) for his excellent intervention. It was fascinating to hear about the grandmother of the hon. Member for Bury South (Mr Lewis). Thank God we have moved on some way from that. I would love to hear more about Stan at some point. We need to think about the realities of homelessness and see...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: I just said that sleeping in central London, if someone is able-bodied, is no worse than being on exercises in the military. It certainly would not be the case for someone who was mentally ill or drug-addicted.

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: I beg to move, That this House has considered street homelessness. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I thought I had had the most interesting February recess, but in fact you were sailing through the south Atlantic to South Georgia in rather hazardous circumstances, so I will defer to you. In the February recess, I wandered into Covent Garden, armed with some...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: What a lovely story—I thank the hon. Gentleman. The other thing that has changed is that the Mayor of London, Westminster City Council, councils across the country and indeed the Government—I do not speak for the Government; I wish I did, but I am just a passed-over Back Bencher—are taking this problem extremely seriously, and I genuinely believe that. The No Second Night...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: I have not come across the Cyrenians, but I agree with the hon. Gentleman that across the road is an excellent sleep spot. The No Second Night Out programme is a good example of an early intervention service. It was launched in 2011 by my right hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), now the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and it aims...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: Well, of course—the hon. Lady need not even have bothered asking the latter question, because it is a no-brainer, isn’t it? As for the numbers for the rest of the country, I do not know—I have not looked at them—but they are very interesting. There are many different people with different sets of figures, and I am sure that hers are correct. With the example of the...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: I will in a minute, but I have only got to page 3 of my speech, and I have quite a few more pages, some of which will go on to cover voluntary organisations, for example, which the hon. Gentleman mentioned earlier.

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: Go on.

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: Yes. As I said at the beginning of my speech, this debate is about street homelessness, and I totally accept that there is a much bigger and much less visible problem of people sofa surfing. Indeed, tomorrow morning I will be seeing an asylum seeker without recourse to public funds who is in exactly the position that the hon. Gentleman is suggesting. Going on to the reasons for rough sleeping...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: I do not know P3, but I am sure that it does great work. I agree with my hon. Friend, and I will come on to that point. How we deal with the mentally ill and the drug addicted, how quickly they have access to support, and how the money goes to the teams on the ground is a very important part. Some of the street homeless I spoke to were ex-soldiers. One guy had separated from his German wife,...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: As I said, I would like to be in the Government, but I am not. We will hear from the Minister, who I think will confirm that enormous amounts of money are being poured in. The hon. Gentleman may have a case in terms of sofa surfers, but for the hard-core rough sleepers, I cannot agree with him. I did not come across the sort of people that he characterised. I accept that, in terms of the...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: Again, I do not want to be a cop-out, but I will throw that to the Minister. If someone is fit and of sound mind, there are all sorts of services, although not quite 24 hours a day, that make it possible to sleep out. I am 52 years old and I was in the Army; to be honest, sleeping rough in central London is a lot more comfortable than going on exercise when I was in the Army. For those who...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Adam Holloway: Can I go on a little bit, unless the hon. Lady is desperate on this point?
