Stephen Lloyd: On the basis of what the hon. Lady has said, which I support entirely, would she be interested to know that Brighton Housing Trust's Eastbourne advice centre deals with at least 800 specialist housing cases per year and anticipates that this will fall to about 100? Are we really expecting Jobcentre Plus to take up the slack?

Backbench Business — [18th Allotted Day]: Legal Aid Reform (3 Feb 2011)

Unscrupulous Builders (9 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: Thank you, Mr Davies, for giving me the opportunity to speak in the debate. I welcome the Minister, and look forward to his response after we have all spoken.

Unscrupulous Builders (9 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank my hon. Friend for his extremely well-made intervention. I have heard about such cases again and again both in my constituency and as an officer of the all-party group for consumer affairs and trading standards.

Unscrupulous Builders (9 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: That is a good point. It is not the conclusion that I have reached, but it is a strong point. The challenge with local government oversight is that it varies a lot around the country. Some local authorities would make it a high priority, while others would not. It is an option, but the conclusion I have drawn is that the Government must start taking steps to look at a licensing proposal. I am...

Unscrupulous Builders (9 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. That is a good idea as long as it is managed properly. My concern is that it might end up a bit like TrustMark. Many people do not know about that scheme and even among those who do know about it, there is some concern that it is not robustly policed. I like the idea, but we have come to the point when we need to introduce licensing. I will explain...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (15 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: I was delighted to hear over the weekend that the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has managed to find an additional £27 million to pay for CAB debt advisers.

Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprenticeships (17 Feb 2011)

Stephen Lloyd: Last Friday, I spoke to several employers in Eastbourne, and their view was that a grant to the providers of apprenticeships would act as a huge incentive and make a huge difference to take-up and completion. Although I appreciate that tough current fiscal conditions mean that any money has be found elsewhere, does the Minister agree that, for small employers in my constituency and throughout...

Business without Debate — Estimates: Social Security (17 Feb 2011)
