Business of the House (Today): Clyde House and A2Dominion (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: It would be helpful if my hon. Friend covered the question of compensation. Often there are very serious problems with people’s properties, and they may even need to be moved out. Those are extremely disruptive times for families with young children, and they end up living in hotels. Will the new framework provide more redress to compensate people who are affected by bad performance, as my...

Business of the House (Today): Clyde House and A2Dominion (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: My hon. Friend has reminded me that it was remiss of me not to give thanks to Wandsworth Council for the work it did when issues of safety in Clyde House were raised. I put on record my thanks to the inspectors who went and made sure that health and safety measures were in place.

Business of the House (Today): Clyde House and A2Dominion (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: I want to raise an issue that has been raised by residents who live in Clyde House in my constituency. It is a block—[Interruption.]

Business of the House (Today): Clyde House and A2Dominion (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. Clyde House is a block of flats where residents have experienced problems pretty much from the word go after it opened several years ago. The issues came to a head several weeks ago when a huge water leak from the heating system rapidly spread through the electrics, causing huge concern for residents, who were worried about the inevitable health and safety...

Business of the House (Today): Clyde House and A2Dominion (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: Indeed, and I will come on to what I think could be some of the solutions. The hon. Lady highlights one of the other issues that came out of the experience of Clyde House residents, which is that nobody is willing to take responsibility. On the one hand, A2Dominion said initially that the responsibility for rectifying some of the major urgent issues was down to the developer, which was...

Business of the House (Today): Clyde House and A2Dominion (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: The hon. Lady is absolutely right. The work now under way at Clyde House will steadily make a difference to residents. Communal areas on all the floors will be redecorated, and fresh flooring will be put down. Work is beginning on upgraded CCTV, and the entrance doors will be much friendlier for disabled people who will now not have to reach the doors to open them—the doors will open...

Business of the House (Today): Clyde House and A2Dominion (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: Indeed. It is really important that residents have access to redress, independent oversight of the quality of the work and somewhere to go when there are issues, and it is important that the system be streamlined so that it is simpler for residents. They should not need to have access to expensive lawyers to get proper advice about how to get their problems sorted out. This is important. I...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: This is an important debate, but I think that most members of the public who are listening to it or watching it are probably losing the will to live, as I am. Yet again Parliament has confronted a long-term issue, on this occasion Brexit, and has failed to find a long-term path forward. I think that the only difference with Brexit is that there was a deadline for it, and today we are...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: Indeed, and the purpose of the meaningful vote was to ensure that Parliament could give its assent to a path forward, which was a very sensible step. The original deadline of 29 March was part of the outcome of the Lancaster House speech, in which the Prime Minister said, “We will have agreed a future partnership by the end of the two-year article 50 process.” That, of course, has not...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: I agree that we need collectively to find a way forward. Party politics and both Front Benches have got in the way of our doing that. In the context of the steps we now need to take, I agree that we need to have votes on the alternative proposals—common market 2.0, Malthouse or whatever—so that we can test whether there is consensus behind any of them, but those votes should be free...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the European Union (14 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: I strongly agree with what the right hon. and learned Gentleman is saying. Does this not underline the fact that continuing to delay a decision because the Government are not getting the answer that they want, and their own delay of crucial votes, means that we have a tendency to be overtaken by events? We clearly do not like the prospect of European Union elections, but other events may...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Uk’S Withdrawal from the European Union (13 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: My point of order very much follows on from that. This debate is about whether this House believes that we should leave with no deal, yet the Secretary of State has spent quite some time discussing anything apart from that. I just wondered whether we could get your advice, Mr Speaker, about when this debate is actually going to go back to the terms on the Order Paper.

Business of the House (Today): European Union (Withdrawal) Act (12 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: My hon. Friend is making a very powerful point. It is easy to forget that when the Prime Minister set out in her Lancaster House speech the many tests and criteria that she felt we needed for a successful Brexit, one of them was to have a future partnership agreed over the course of the two-year article 50 period. As he will know, that was the first time that she mentioned the phrase “No...

International Women’s Day (7 Mar 2019)

Justine Greening: I would like to praise my right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) for a fantastic opening speech and the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips) for her hugely powerful speech. Gender equality is a crucial agenda for the whole planet. The reality is that we simply will not fix the many challenges that the world faces today with half the world’s population...

Uk’S Withdrawal from the EU (27 Feb 2019)

Justine Greening: Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that if a Parliament simply guessed what version or outcome of Brexit people wanted, brought it about and then hoped that it was the right one for the British people, that would not be a pragmatic, sensible, sustainable or democratically acceptable way of proceeding?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Feb 2019)

Justine Greening: With the Government’s review of higher education still under way, does the Prime Minister agree that the reintroduction of maintenance grants is one outcome that could clearly aid social mobility for more disadvantaged students?

Leaving the European Union (26 Feb 2019)

Justine Greening: It is abundantly clear just from listening to the questions today that there is not a consensus in this House and that we do face gridlock. We have now run down the clock, and rather than wasting more time repeating votes that we have already had and that this House has already expressed its will on—for example, on no deal and on the Government’s deal and the withdrawal agreement—is it...

Relationships and Sex Education (25 Feb 2019)

Justine Greening: I welcome the steps forward being taken today. They are incredibly important for many children and especially young people, whose voices have been listened to. It is very hard for them to protect themselves from a risk if they have never been alerted to its existence in the first place. It is also very hard for them to know what is normal and acceptable online—what they should share, what...
