Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Jake Berry: I am not throwing accusations around. I suggest the hon. Gentleman checks Hansard because whatever the funding gap may be, it would have been much bigger if he and his colleagues had got their way. He voted against more funding for social care, and I suggest he remembers that when he is giving out the lectures. In addition to helping councils address the complexity around the delivery of...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Jake Berry: If we double the council tax that is paid by local people, then I will start to take lectures from the hon. Gentleman about what we should do. He should remember his own record. He entered Parliament in 2005 and was here when all this was happening; perhaps he would like to recall that. Taken as a whole, this protection will mean that we see the lowest average council tax rise since 2016,...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Jake Berry: I have more—I can keep going. I welcome the subject of today’s debate, because it gives us an opportunity to look at the exciting programme that this Government have for devolution, levelling up and supporting our towns. However, it would be remiss of any Member not to take this opportunity to thank everyone who works in local government. I often feel that being a councillor is a...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Jake Berry: I will not; I am concluding. Let me finish by thanking our councillors and our officers, as well as the Opposition for calling this important debate and giving us an opportunity to discuss the Government’s exciting agenda.

Local Services: London Suburbs — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Jan 2020)

Jake Berry: I think this is the first time I have served under your chairmanship in this Parliament, Mr Hosie. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ealing Central and Acton (Dr Huq) on securing an important and very enjoyable debate. I welcome her comments about her constituency, which painted a picture of the suburban lifestyle in its most modern of settings. It is quite right that we take this...

Local Services: London Suburbs — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Jan 2020)

Jake Berry: We absolutely do continue to give that attention. It is a real London issue but certainly not a London-only issue—it is a metropolitan issue—but I am afraid to say that when I entered Parliament in 2010, the benefits system had lost public trust. The benefits system has to be fair for those people who, quite rightly, rely on it—any of us at any point in our lives could fall through the...

Local Services: London Suburbs — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (28 Jan 2020)

Jake Berry: Right. On the cross-departmental suburban taskforce, I think the idea has merit. The hon. Lady said that one of her famous constituents is called Naughty Boy—I don’t think she was referring to me. On the basis that the Government are not currently proposing such a taskforce, why does the hon. Lady not be a bit naughty and set it up herself? Once it is up and running with some...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Towns Fund (27 Jan 2020)

Jake Berry: At this point in time, the Government is not able to publish the full selection methodology used to choose the 100 Towns that will work towards Town Deals, including the EU exit response criteria.
