Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: May I extend an invitation to the hon. Gentleman to West Ham for coffee and cake, and to see the enforcement team in action?

Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: I draw attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I welcome the hon. Member for South Derbyshire (Mrs Wheeler) to her place on the Front Bench—a promotion richly deserved. May I say that I am looking forward to knocking on her door and having a conversation about the contents of my speech? I fully support the Bill, and I thank my hon. Friend the...

Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: Excellent. My office will be in touch with the hon. Lady’s to see if we can get a date. Enabling local authorities to take tough action against rogue landlords is very important and can be a real help in driving up standards. The Bill would tackle the problem at the root by clarifying, updating and strengthening the right of tenants to live in a rental property that is fit to be called...

Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: Newham Council was absolutely right to take the action it did, and the Government were right to support it further. Only through such schemes, which are paid for by landlords, can we ensure that there is money for enforcement activity and that tenants can live in homes that are fit for them. All our constituents deserve to have workable and realistic legal redress against landlords whose...

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for being so generous in giving way. May I gently say to her that Newham Council has a licensing scheme because it provides money with which it can use its enforcement powers? All landlords would benefit from such a scheme, because it would ensure that they all adhered to proper standards, which could only be good for the whole sector.

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: Will the hon. Lady give way?

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (19 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: May I wish you a very happy birthday, Mr Speaker? I beg to move, That the House sit in private. Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No. 163), and negatived.

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: May I just ask my hon. Friend for the venue?

RBS Global Restructuring Group and Smes: Holocaust Memorial Day (18 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: As we know, the Nazis created and peddled myths about Jewish people; they dehumanised them, representing them as an existential threat to ordinary German citizens. Their propaganda was massively and horrifically effective. Hate-filled words enabled their crimes. It is startling how many of the myths they created reflected the Nazis’ own sickening plans and twisted thinking. In March...

County Lines Exploitation: London — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (17 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way; everybody has been very generous this morning. One mum told me what she had heard about how county lines were being run. She told me about the provision of a gift such as trainers to an individual, which is then considered to be a drug debt that has to be paid back. When the child goes on the county run to pay back the debt, they are robbed by...

County Lines Exploitation: London — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (17 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: Does my right hon. Friend agree that one of the good advances that we have made over the past year has been to understand that some of our children are being coerced into those gangs? Is she pleased, as I am, that the modern day slavery legislation is being applied in such cases so that those children are understood, rather than condemned?

County Lines Exploitation: London — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (17 Jan 2018)

Lyn Brown: One of the most shocking stories I heard was from a mum whose child had been on the county lines. She told me how she had been trying to stop him, but how he would just come home for a rest before going off again. What was most shocking was that child protection professionals were completely and utterly unaware of him. The gangs played the system really well: social services considered her a...

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: I have not seen children sleeping rough, but I have certainly seen children under the age of 12 in hostels that churches run to keep people off the street. For me, that is the lowest level “roof over head” that there is. It is not a big step away from sleeping on the street.

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his kind words, but it is sad that not many people are here today. The information we had was that this debate was massively over-subscribed. I would like to go back to the old tradition where we had a proper Adjournment debate in which we could properly explore the issues that are important to our constituents, without having to contain that within a four, six...

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: As the hon. Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart) said, I often use this debate to talk about women’s health matters in a way that can make grown men wince. I have to say that he and other hon. Members on both sides of the House have been very generous in their support for the hysteroscopy campaign. I am very happy to report that, following a meeting this week with the Under-Secretary of...

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: The woman Health Minister I met has read the women’s testimonies I presented to her, and she was horrified by them, as the House has been when I have read them out on previous occasions. She and I are very clear that this is about choice—informed choice—and about making sure that women get what they need, rather than what is cheapest. I do not want to put words in her mouth,...

Christmas Adjournment (21 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: I have had a nod. My second issue concerns a mental health condition called depersonalisation disorder. At least one of my constituents is a sufferer, and she has asked me to share her story with the House. Since she was 18, my constituent has lived for years in a continuous state of detachment. The world and her own life do not feel real. She lives in a dream, performing actions on...

Corrosive Substance Attacks — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: I am grateful for what has been a really good debate. I thank all hon. Members who came and contributed. The substantive contributions by everybody to a person were valuable, so I thank everyone, especially on effectively our last day of term. That goes to show the commitment and work ethic of hon. Members. I say gently to the Minister that I am not currently reassured that we are making...

Corrosive Substance Attacks — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: I am pleased to hear what the Minister is saying, but I ask her to commit to look again through my speech after today—on Christmas day, obviously!—and note down some responses to my more detailed questions. I genuinely welcome her commitment on sulphuric acid, but in reality, if we restrict only sulphuric acid, those who are using and weaponising corrosive substances will find a...

Corrosive Substance Attacks — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Dec 2017)

Lyn Brown: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Government response to corrosive substance attacks. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I welcome the new Minister to her post. From the little I know of her, I trust that we will have a good and constructive debate today. Sadly, Newham has been labelled as the acid attack capital of Britain, and the extent of the...
