Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on his introduction to this important debate. Will he confirm that there has been some misunderstanding out there that this petition would actually prevent charities from helping to move on dogs? That is not the case at all; it would strengthen their hand.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Private Rented Sector Evictions (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I am very disappointed with that answer because, having had meetings with a number of residents associations and landlords, I already know that the private sector is fairly loth to let houses to people on housing benefit. The same applies to universal credit, the reason being that the payment goes direct to the tenant. I urge the Government to at least have a default, if both sides agree, for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (21 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Earlier, in response to my question, the Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the hon. Member for North West Hampshire (Kit Malthouse) indicated that I said one thing during the coalition and another thing post-coalition on the issue of rent payments to private landlords. The Under-Secretary was not a Member of Parliament at that time, so he will not know that I am on the record,...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: This is a shocking report, and its conclusions demean us all. A lot of people on both sides of the Chamber have asked the Minister and her Department to come up with some actions. Rather than just talking about it, will she commit today to coming back to the House with a specific action plan to prevent and change what has been an absolutely shocking situation for many decades?

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Will you bring it back to the House?

Health and Social Care: NHS Bursaries (8 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: With every reputable independent body showing very clearly that we have a staffing crisis in the NHS nursing profession, can the Minister explain how cutting bursaries actually improves the situation?

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: Let us be clear that this is an utterly desperate situation. We know that some women may well have died who might not have done had they been identified. However, I would like to pay tribute to the Secretary of State’s statement. It was transparent, it ’fessed up and it made clear what the Department of Health and Social Care would be doing to remedy the situation. I appreciate that. What...

Bowel Cancer Screening (1 May 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank the hon. Gentleman for securing this important debate. I offer him my condolences on his dear mother’s death. He will be aware of the enormous public petition—it has received 446,000 signatures—that was started all those years ago by Lauren Backler, who also lost her mother. I have supported that campaign for a long time. Does he agree that the evidence is clear that we should...

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: On that important point, the Minister knows I am very interested in the question of the A27 from Lewes to Polegate. He also knows that there is a tremendous partnership between the county council, different MPs, the business community and, I would hope, Transport for the South East in support of the new spur. Can he give any indication of when a decision will be made?

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Sir Henry. I thank the hon. Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman) for securing this important debate. I also appreciated the words of the previous speakers. This is an important debate, and one of the things that I was thinking about as Members were talking was that, as we all know, the south-east is one of the most prosperous parts...

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point. One of the most depressing things imaginable is to drive around this country and stop at every single coastal town—for one reason or another, a lot of them are suffering desperately and have been for a long time. I am enormously proud of how Eastbourne has bucked that trend, certainly in the last 10 years. We will be opening a new transformed...

Transport for the South East — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: When the hon. Gentleman mentioned Brexit and Kent, I thought he was going to announce the independence of Kent, but clearly not. He makes an important point. The Government have put a lot of effort into that—they face specific local residential problems in various areas and are looking to extend transport and parking facilities. I am glad the Department for Transport has to sort the...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords]: Unsolicited direct marketing: other consumer financial products etc (24 Apr 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: You make a salient point, Madam Deputy Speaker. I have been sitting here for two hours, so I agreed with a lot of what you said. I am glad that we are finally concluding our consideration of the Bill. I rise to speak to amendment (a) to new clause 9, as well to new clause 7, amendment (a) to amendment 10 and amendment 34. The Liberal Democrats welcome the amendments that the Government have...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords]: Unsolicited direct marketing: other consumer financial products etc (24 Apr 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: The hon. Gentleman is making a salient point. Given that the range of interest rates for a number of companies that offer equity release is really quite considerable, does he agree that one of the advantages of the advice going through an independent body is that those who are offering better and lower interest rates for consumers are more likely to receive custom?

Capita (24 Apr 2018)

Stephen Lloyd: The Minister has spoken several times in glowing terms about the importance of the SME sector. One of the issues that came out of Carillion’s collapse was the deplorable reality that it often did not pay its SMEs their subs for 120 days, and sometimes more. That is the way to destroy the SME sector. Given that this is taxpayers’ money, will he give me a guarantee that that is not...

Stephen Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what estimate she has made of the number of Support for Mortgage Interest claimants in each region in England.
