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.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: Growing the whole north is crucial to the delivery of our northern powerhouse. Since the northern powerhouse strategy was launched, direct foreign investment in the north has increased at a rate double that of the national average, and unemployment throughout the north is now lower than the national average.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: I am a bit more optimistic for the north-east than the hon. Lady, because we are now entering a new golden era for the north-east, which can be seen in the Government’s commitment of more than £300 million—[Interruption.] Does the hon. Lady want to hear about what we are doing for the north-east? That new golden era can be seen in the Government’s commitment of more...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: We are already investing some £67 million in the Humber and the Greater Lincolnshire local enterprise partnership, and I note that £20 million of that is going into my hon. Friend’s constituency. He will be aware that we committed in the industrial strategy to work on a business case for a Grimsby and Cleethorpes town deal. I hope that, in demonstrating that success, we can...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Northern Powerhouse (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: I am certainly not going to take any lectures on the northern powerhouse from the hon. Gentleman, because after his election he described it as the “northern poorhouse”. Unlike Opposition Members, the Government are behind the north, not least by investing £13 billion in northern transport—more than any Government in history, including the Labour Government.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (30 Apr 2018)

Jake Berry: The north Wales growth deal is primarily the responsibility of the Secretary of State for Wales. I am happy to update the right hon. Gentleman by saying that we are making good progress in looking at the proposals from local authorities. Once we have completed that work, we will make an announcement shortly about the next steps for all local authorities involved.

Local Infrastructure (East Midlands) (20 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: It is a pleasure to respond to this debate. In line with tradition, I intend to leave my hon. Friend the Member for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley) a minute or two at the end to wind up. I will rattle through some of the contributions. First, I congratulate my hon. Friend on introducing the debate, and on the elegant and forceful way he put the case for his constituents. He is the first...

Local Infrastructure (East Midlands) (20 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: Does my right hon. Friend, who has vast experience of infrastructure spending, agree that it is not realistic to compare spending in a city with spending in a region? If the figures are conflated, a misleading balance is often produced.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Support for Local Government (12 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: The 2018-19 settlement sees a real-terms increase in resources for local government over the next two years, increasing from £44.3 billion to £45.6 billion.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Support for Local Government (12 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: In particular for Leicestershire but for all councils, there could be no better champion than my hon. Friend of fairer funding for the many councils, not the few. This evidence-based review will provide an opportunity for more accurate funding allocations for Leicestershire and other councils.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Support for Local Government (12 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: We have increased funding in real terms, which I am sure the hon. Gentleman’s constituents, like mine, will welcome. With the fairer funding review coming up, rather than trying to score political points across the Chamber, why does he not get involved with it so that local authorities can concentrate on delivery?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Support for Local Government (12 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: I can absolutely provide that assurance to my hon. Friend. Demographic change will be at the heart of the fairer funding review.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Devolution to Towns and Cities (12 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: For areas that have not agreed deals so far, we aim to be able to provide clarity on how best to take forward their ambitions for devolution and local growth over the coming months.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Devolution to Towns and Cities (12 Mar 2018)

Jake Berry: Devolution could almost be regarded as the golden thread of Brexit. If we want to take back control, we should bring powers not just from Brussels to London but from London back to our regions. Last Friday, I met borough and county councils in both Gainsborough and the city of Lincoln, and I was struck by the pent-up demand for devolution in Lincolnshire. I suggest that my hon. Friend use his...
