Backbench Business — [14(th) Allotted Day]: Park Homes (16 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: A few Members in the Chamber may know that I am rather hard of hearing, but I have discovered since being elected that in politics there are some advantages to being hard of hearing. However, I will leave that to those in the Chamber to determine. Like everyone else, I would like to congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Mid Dorset and North Poole (Annette Brooke) on bringing this debate...

Backbench Business — [14(th) Allotted Day]: Park Homes (16 Dec 2010)

Stephen Lloyd: My hon. Friend hits the nail on the head, not least because-this is the conclusion that I have come to-a fair number of disreputable home owners know each other. The practice has been going on for years and, bluntly, it is a scam. Therefore, I am afraid that, as a light-touch, business-wing Liberal, I am going to ask the Minister for more regulation, and I would urge him to come forward with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Disabled Jobseekers (10 Jan 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: Although I support the recent changes to access to work, which have offered a reassurance to prospective employers that they will be able to use ATW, I am concerned that the money available is to be reduced. Will the Minister reassure me that the access to work fund will always be adequate as the Government's policies rightly help more disabled people back into work?

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: Employment Schemes: Further Education (17 Jan 2011)

Property Market (25 Jan 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way; he has been very patient in allowing us all to intervene, which I appreciate. Does he agree that a measure that will help people to find homes is another change that the coalition Government are introducing, thereby moving to a default situation where it is easier for people in receipt of housing benefit to opt for it to be given directly to the landlord...

Health and Social Care Bill (31 Jan 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: I agree that the issue of ageing patients is a fundamental challenge. Does my hon. Friend agree that domiciliary care, which is currently delivered through local authorities and primary care trusts, is a vital service that maintains many people's health for the longer term and often prevents unnecessary stays in hospital? Does he agree that appropriate steps should be taken by the Government...

Health and Social Care Bill (31 Jan 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: I agree with much that my hon. Friend is saying about integration and the need to work with the community, and I applaud many of the changes made by the Bill. For years we have all talked of using pharmacists in a smarter way. Does not the Bill provide an opportunity for much more integration of community pharmacy with the consortia, and for the Government to support the consortia in that...

Health and Social Care Bill (31 Jan 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Backbench Business — [18th Allotted Day]: Consumer Credit and Debt Management (3 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: I echo my colleagues in paying tribute to the hon. Member for Walthamstow (Stella Creasy) for pushing this issue and bringing the motion to the House for us to debate. It is incredibly important. When I first heard about the astronomical APRs charged by the payday loan firm, I was extremely concerned. When I discovered that the precise APRs charged were way beyond what I had feared or even...

Backbench Business — [18th Allotted Day]: Consumer Credit and Debt Management (3 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: The hon. Lady raises a good point, and an important one. There will be some anomalies, but when I did the research I found that the majority of people who use payday loans pay them back regularly, otherwise the business model would collapse. I hope to be able to explain that as I go through my remarks. The companies offer credit to those who are financially excluded by larger and seemingly...

Backbench Business — [18th Allotted Day]: Consumer Credit and Debt Management (3 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The figures I have show that the sector is worth in excess of £1 billion per annum, and heading towards £1.5 billion, so it is clearly very profitable. That is the point I want to make, if Members will bear with me. The blunt reality is that many disadvantaged people simply do not have access to high street banks, which we all take for granted, and...
