Baroness Gardner of Parkes: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the availability of National Health Service dentistry services.

NHS Dentistry Services - Question (11 Jul 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: That is rather a disappointing Answer, although it certainly ties in with my experience: it was declared in Manchester that no children could have operations done under general anaesthetic because all slots were taken for the clearance of baby teeth. When I saw that, I wrote to the Mayor of Manchester, who has great experience in the field of health from when he was in the House of Commons. I...

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford on 4 June (HL15832), what assessment they have made of (1) the future costs to the NHS as a result of the spread of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, (2) the costs of new measures introduced in 2019 specifically to prevent the transmission of such Enterobacteriaceae, and (3) the views...

Housing: No-fault Evictions - Question (15 May 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: Can the Minister assure us that the impact of the short lets for holidays will also be taken into consideration, to help these tenancies become longer rather than having them concealed and desperately affecting other people in the buildings?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Antibiotics: Drug Resistance (14 May 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the effectiveness of their 2013–18 antimicrobial resistance strategy at addressing the problem of multi-resistant E. coli-like bacteria; what assessment they have made of recent trends in the number of multi-resistant E. coli-like bacteria in the UK; and what factors inform their view of the balance between efforts to reduce...

Tax: Short-term Lets - Question (1 Apr 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, and I remind the House of my interests as declared in the register.

Tax: Short-term Lets - Question (1 Apr 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: I thank the Minister for that Answer. However, will HMRC be persuaded to introduce an express declaration on all tax returns, with short-term let property addressees and income having to be disclosed in full, and will it provide that information to local councils? That will then help to enforce the 90-day limit. That is important following the “Inside Out” programme on BBC1, which...

Tax: Short-term Lets - Question (1 Apr 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: Did the Minister see in the Times last week—the story was also broadcast—that the Hilton hotel chain claims it has been so undermined by Airbnb that it is killing the tourist industry in New York? That chain is about the biggest there is. Does the Minister agree that it is important to keep a watching eye on this? Local authorities would seem the best people for the job.

Commonwealth - Motion to Take Note (28 Mar 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: My Lords, I thought I had put my name down to speak, but I then discovered that I was not on the list. I was told I could speak in the gap because I was here in the first debate and for a number of other contributions that followed it. As an early Commonwealth person in this House—I have been here since 1981—I have felt as an Australian living here all this time that Britain and Australia...

Employment Rights (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (28 Mar 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: My Lords, I raised the issue of care agencies earlier, regarding carers who do one hour in one place, one hour in the next and so on, all of them potentially quite far apart. There was a court decision, at a very high level, that they must be paid for their time travelling between places. I have followed this up, and have been told that, in general, they are not being paid. It is local...

Property Guardians - Question (26 Mar 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: My Lords, what is the definition of a property guardian? Can these situations just be produced by simple means or does there need to be a full legal definition? I do not know, and I think many in the House would like clarification.

Holiday Accommodation - Question (19 Mar 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: My Lords, is the Minister aware—I am sure he is—of my interest in short-term accommodation? Rarely do the people letting such accommodation reveal their situation. Does he consider that comparing the quality of holiday accommodation—as is referred to in this Question—should include the issue of whether or not it is legal?

Council Tax - Question (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: Can the Minister explain to me, because I have never understood it, why the council tax payable on a property outside London—I am talking about a small family home we have had for many years in Oxfordshire—is more than twice that in Westminster, in London?

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Holiday Accommodation (13 Mar 2019)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the reply by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth on 26 February (HL Deb, col 88), what assessment they have made (1) of reports in the media, as broadcast on BBC1 on 25 February, about companies offering advice to circumvent the 90-day limit for short-term lettings, and (2) of the existing regulatory framework for those who offer such lettings; and what...
