Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authority Funding: North-east (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: From 2015-16 to 2019-20, north-east councils will have access to £11.3 billion in core spending power. The 2018-19 settlement sees a 1.9% increase in the money available to north-east councils.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authority Funding: North-east (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: On the subject of those who can afford it building up savings, I might point out to the hon. Gentleman that his local authority—I remind him, as I am sure he knows, that every seat except one is held by the Labour party—has increased its reserves by £7 million since 2010, so perhaps he should be addressing his questions on redundancies and closures to the local Labour party.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Authority Funding: North-east (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: On whether central Government care for people in Newcastle, I would say that surely they, like the hon. Lady, should welcome the £600 million of new money provided for the devolution deal; the great exhibition of the north, opening this Friday, which is set to boost her local economy by £184 million; the Budget announcement of £337 million for the Tyne and Wear Metro;...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: We are delivering economic growth across the northern powerhouse by devolving more power and investing more than any Government in history in our transport infrastructure. That is why, since the northern powerhouse was launched, we have grown the northern economy by £20 billion.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: As I am sure the hon. Gentleman is aware, all the councils he mentions and the LEP have brought out what they refer to as the prospectus for growth, which is looking at how they can deliver real economic benefits for the people who live in Warrington and elsewhere in Cheshire. The Government remain open to ground-up locally supported devolution deals. I encourage the hon. Gentleman, the...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: It takes a former northern powerhouse Minister to remind the current one that those new trains built in my hon. Friend’s constituency in Goole must benefit the entirety of the north of England. I will work with him to make sure that happens.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: I am torn: I find myself partially agreeing with the hon. Gentleman, although I certainly do not agree that there has been no vision or leadership on the northern powerhouse. Since I became Minister we have announced a “minded to” deal for a North of Tyne combined authority, we have reaffirmed the commitment to the north Wales growth deal, we have announced that we intend to do a...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Midlands Engine (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: We recently launched the £250 million midlands engine investment fund and agreed a second devolution deal with the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street. We have also given £4 million to the midlands engine partnership to support a range of economic activity, including that of our very important ceramic sector.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Midlands Engine (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: The future health of our high streets is extremely important, which is why I am pleased to be able to announce today that my Department will launch a call for evidence over the summer looking at the future of our high street. We intend to establish an expert panel to diagnose the issues currently affecting the high street. I will be visiting my hon. Friend’s constituency shortly. I hope...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: The hon. Gentleman will be aware that the Prime Minister recently announced a growth deal for Ayrshire, and I am delighted to tell him that the negotiations, led by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland, are now under way, but it can only proceed as fast as the slowest actors, so I hope the hon. Gentleman will use his not inconsiderable influence to pressurise the Scottish...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: Apart from doing ITV, Granada, the BBC and local papers, including the Manchester Evening News, I do not know where the hon. Lady has been looking, but we continue to work with Transport for the North to improve transport connections across the north of England. This Government have been absolutely clear that the performance of Northern has been unacceptable, but I offer Labour Members the...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: We are seeing peace and harmony across the House on Yorkshire. I have been having discussions with the Secretary of State on Yorkshire devolution and with the recently elected Mayor of South Yorkshire. The Government have been absolutely clear that, before “One Yorkshire” can proceed, the South Yorkshire devolution deal must be fully implemented. It is up to the Labour party...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (18 Jun 2018)

Jake Berry: As the right hon. Gentleman is aware—because he, like me, attended a meeting at the Wales Office just before Christmas—the North Wales growth deal is proceeding well, but it can only go as fast as the slowest actors, so I say to him that he has power and influence over the North Wales local authorities. This Government have been clear: we would like to see concrete proposals...

Fire Safety Cladding: Heysmoor Heights (16 May 2018)

Jake Berry: I thank all hon. Members for their contributions, and I thank the hon. Member for Liverpool, Riverside (Mrs Ellman)—Liverpool is my home city—for the extraordinary campaign she is fighting behalf of the local residents she has the privilege to represent. She has asked written and oral parliamentary questions, and she has now secured this important debate. As the hon. Lady...

Fire Safety Cladding: Heysmoor Heights (16 May 2018)

Jake Berry: The ownership of property is of course subject to the public record. I suspect that the hon. Lady may be getting at the fact that even when the Land Registry has a name on the register, it is sometimes tied up with foreign companies in jurisdictions that do not have the same transparency rules that we have for our companies. I will absolutely ensure that my hon. Friend the Housing Minister...

Fire Safety Cladding: Heysmoor Heights (16 May 2018)

Jake Berry: The hon. Lady referred to the announcement by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister today of £400 million of new Government funding to help local authorities and housing associations focus their efforts on removing ACM cladding. We have also provided other financial flexibilities for local authorities that need to undertake other essential fire safety work. As she has asked me very...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: One Yorkshire (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: Last month, high-level proposals were received from some councils in Yorkshire about the so-called One Yorkshire devolution deal. We are considering those proposals carefully and will respond to the authorities in due course.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: One Yorkshire (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: The hon. Gentleman is something of a Mystic Meg of the Labour party. Unlike him, I want the people of South Yorkshire to have their say in the elections next Thursday. The Conservative candidate, Ian Walker, has said: “This is a golden opportunity to show what South Yorkshire can do.” The Labour candidate thinks that it should be a part-time job, and the Labour authorities are...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: One Yorkshire (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: I would not like to be drawn on responding to the high-level proposals we have received, but I will say this: later this year the city of Leeds will be the only core city in the north of England that has not benefited from devolution, and that is a terrible shame for everyone who lives in West Yorkshire.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: One Yorkshire (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: All of these devolution deals are ground-up, and if people from Hull and the Humber come to the Government with proposals for devolution for that area, the Government will of course look at them in the way that they do all devolution proposals.
