Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: I apologise for interrupting the hon. Lady, but I did not manage to mention this point. I know that she is keen for the Home Office to engage with this matter and I will ensure that the relevant Minister from the Home Office meets her and interested colleagues to take these issues forward.

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: I congratulate the hon. Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green) on securing this crucial debate. It was a little interrupted, and I am grateful to hon. Members for coming back to the Chamber to hear a response from the interim Minister—I guess we are all interim Ministers in this job, as it is ultimately down to the will of the electorate.

Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: I have no intentions in that regard. I thank the hon. Member for Stretford and Urmston for her work in this area. Her important work with the all-party group on refugees has raised the profiles of issues that impact on refugees, and I thank all right hon. and hon. Members for their contributions today. We have a proud history of providing protection for those who need it, and the Government...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homelessness: Domestic Violence (17 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: The Department does not hold information on the number of victims of domestic abuse who have slept rough and experienced homelessness in each of the last five years. However, we know that in 2017/18, 1,330 households were accepted as homeless with the primary reason of acceptance being that they were vulnerable as a result of having fled their home because of domestic violence or the threat...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Domestic Violence: Refuges (16 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: The Government does hold the data requested. Domestic abuse is a life-shattering and abhorrent crime that nobody should have to suffer. The Government is committed to protecting victims of domestic abuse, and since 2015 we have provided almost £889,000 to Women’s Aid for two key projects, Routes to Support and No Woman Turned Away. Routes to Support (formerly UK Refuges online) is...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Temporary Accommodation: Children (9 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: Temporary accommodation provides an important safety net and means that no one has to be without a roof over their heads. We brought the Homelessness Reduction Act into force in April 2018. This is the biggest and most ambitious change to homelessness legislation in decades, focusing on preventing homelessness in the first place, and ensuring more people are getting the help they need. We...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Housing: Management (9 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: The Government is committed to promoting fairness and transparency for leaseholders and freeholders and ensuring that consumers are protected from abuse and poor service. On 1 April, we published the response to our call for evidence on protecting consumers in the letting and managing agent market. Proposals include establishing a Working Group to consider how fees such as service charges...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Letting Agents: Fees and Charges (9 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: The Tenant Fees Bill is not about driving letting agents out of business. Letting agents should be reimbursed for the valuable services they provide but this must be by landlords rather than tenants. It is only fair that the party who contracts the service should pay for the service. We do not expect the full level of tenant fees that are charged currently by letting agents to be passed on to...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Letting Agents: Fees and Charges (9 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: The Government does not agree that a cap on fees would be effective as tenants would continue to have very limited ability to negotiate the level of fees. A ban ensures that the party that contacts the service pays for the service, which is an indicator of a fair market. A ban is also easier for tenants to understand and enforce.

Nigel Adams: Temporary accommodation ensures that no child or household are left without a roof over their head and are getting the help they need.

These are published at a local authority level. The latest statistics can be found at:...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

It is also a great pleasure to have listened to some fantastic contributions from colleagues from across the House. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge). Everyone who has contributed to the debate has been an outstanding champion for their local area. It was...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: I have about nine minutes left—that is about right. My thanks go to a great Parliamentary Private Secretary. Issues with the current five-year land supply model and slow build-out were a key feature of the housing White Paper. The Government are seeking to address that through a package of reforms to the planning system, including revising the national planning policy framework, which...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: My hon. Friend raises a valid point. We are hopeful that that will go a long way to eradicating some of the issues that he and right hon. and hon. Members have experienced. The idea is that it can be fixed at a one-year period. We will also see what other reforms are proposed as part of the review that my right hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) is planning. It is...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Temporary Accommodation (3 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: Time spent in temporary accommodation means people are getting help and itbensures no family is without a roof over their head. We have clearly set out in legislation in what circumstances it is necessary to provide temporary accommodation. It is our expectation that local authorities adhere to this and provide people with temporary accommodation where appropriate having fully considered...

Persistent Rough Sleeping in Nottingham (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: First, I would like to commend the hon. Member for Nottingham South (Lilian Greenwood) for securing such a worthwhile debate. I am sure the Under-Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, my hon. Friend the Member for South Derbyshire (Mrs Wheeler), will have heard her kind words. Homelessness and rough sleeping is an issue that I am sure is close to all our hearts....

Persistent Rough Sleeping in Nottingham (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: I certainly would—any excuse to go back to Nottingham. I remember going there very often as a child to visit family, and I would very much like to do so. I am sure my diary secretary will be scribbling down something to ensure that we get it in the diary in the near future. This initiative will also provide over 1,700 new bed spaces, including in both emergency and settled...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Refuges: Females (2 Jul 2018)

Nigel Adams: Domestic abuse is a life-shattering and absolutely abhorrent crime. Refuges play a valuable role, and for some victims, they will be the best option for them. My Department does not hold information on the number of refuges for BAME women that have closed within the last twelve months. We expect local areas to assess their need of services and support for victims of domestic abuse and to...
