Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: High Street Businesses (12 Jun 2018)

Toby Perkins: One of the areas on the high street that is particularly struggling is that of our important pubs. I would be interested to hear the Minister’s view on the extent to which pub-owning businesses and tenants enjoy confidence in the Pubs Code Adjudicator—and if they do not, what steps the Government are taking to put that right.

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: Chesterfield Royal Hospital is consulting on setting up a subsidiary company. Does it not seem madness that, in order to save £3 million that the hospital is paying the Government, it is creating this new organisation, which is being funded by the Government anyway? It is the emperor’s new clothes. The money is going round in circles without doing any good.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (16 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: One of the most shocking elements of the whole Carillion fiasco was the fact that the Cabinet Office saw a letter from Carillion’s accountants in mid-December with a proposal that would have allowed £360 million extra to be put back into the public purse. Will the Minister explain what he did when he saw that recommendation, and why the money was not put back into public purse?

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: It is grotesque that the Americans are planning to block the independent investigation, but do we not already know that many of the people killed and injured yesterday posed no threat to the Israeli regime? Does the Minister not recognise that, by failing to come to the Dispatch Box and unequivocally condemn the murder of Palestinian citizens that we saw yesterday, he is actually...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I would like to start where the right hon. Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller) finished. I agree entirely about the importance of this Bill, which the Minister herself described as being so important. It behoves all of us to consider why somebody who has been through the appalling domestic violence that many of our constituents have experienced would then be willing potentially to stay in...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I welcome the audit, but the question is what happens afterwards. I would like this to be a statutory service with a responsibility on local authorities to provide it. Will there be any move by the Government towards that? Having the information is one thing, but the next thing is what the Government do with it. On amendment 2, my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I am listening carefully to what the Minister is saying. It very much stands at odds with the Conservative party policy announced in the run-up to the general election, when it was going to impose right to buy on housing associations. How is it that the Conservative party is so happy to remove thousands of houses from the social rental sector when it comes to right to buy, but when it comes...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I welcome the reassurance that the Minister has just given us, but the fact is that different local authorities understand the current legislation and their responsibilities to people fleeing domestic violence in different ways, so what possible harm would it do to include amendment 1 so that there would be no cause for any misunderstanding in future?

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill: Duty to review cooperation between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (8 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: I agree entirely with what my hon. Friend is saying about the postcode lottery. When I raised that on Second Reading, the Minister said that I was complaining about an issue that did not exist, but it has become clear from subsequent meetings with Women’s Aid that different local authorities are applying very different interpretations of the rights in terms of housing allocations and...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Scottish Limited Partnerships: UK bank account requirement (1 May 2018)

Toby Perkins: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I made the hon. and learned Member for Torridge and West Devon (Mr Cox) aware, as is the convention, that I intended to raise a point of order about the fact that he spoke very passionately in favour of the Cayman Islands when he has clearly, according to his own entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, done a lot of work on their behalf....
