Bob Blackman: Since September 2015, some 58 Israelis and four foreign nationals have been murdered by Palestinian terrorists in more than 400 separate stabbing, shooting and car ramming incidents.

Friend make it clear to the Palestinian Authority that, until such time as glorification of...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

Royal Assent: Motability (8 Feb 2018)

Bob Blackman: Only a third of those who can get grants from this operation currently do, so will my right hon. Friend ensure that the eligibility criteria are reviewed?

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Devolved Government (7 Feb 2018)

Bob Blackman: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s commitment to ensuring that devolved government is restored as soon as possible. Does she agree that one of the stumbling blocks is that certain parties—namely, Sinn Féin—keep coming forward with new demands that were not part of the original aim of forming the Executive?

Capita: Business of the House (1 Feb 2018)

Bob Blackman: The Community Security Trust’s annual report shows a growth in anti-Semitic attacks in this country amidst a pernicious increase in anti-Semitism more generally. At the same time, the chief inspector of schools is making a speech today about the growth of religious extremism in our schools. May we have a debate in the Chamber in Government time on how to combat religious extremism and...

Capita (1 Feb 2018)

Bob Blackman: It is clear that Capita is unique because it grew out of outsourcing from the public sector, but as it grew the structures outstripped its proper corporate responsibility. It is also clear that we need to argue the case for the benefits to the public sector of outsourcing. Will the Minister therefore set out the benefits of outsourcing and give one or two examples of where it has been a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 (23 Jan 2018)

Bob Blackman: I thank my hon. Friend and welcome him to his new position. As he rightly says, it is in our best interest that ex-offenders leaving prison do not reoffend. One of the key issues is to ensure that prison governors honour their commitment under the Homelessness Reduction Act to ensure that people are prepared for life outside prison. What action will he take to ensure that prison governors...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Housing First (22 Jan 2018)

Bob Blackman: I commend the Government for initiating the Housing First pilots, but what assessment has my right hon. Friend made of rough sleeping in London, which is clearly under the greatest pressure?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (22 Jan 2018)

Bob Blackman: I join others in wishing you, Mr Speaker, a very happy birthday and in thanking you for sitting in the Chair on your birthday when you could be off enjoying yourself in another way. [Interruption.] I am sure you are going to enjoy our debate. First, I draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests; I am a vice-president of the Local...

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Bob Blackman: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention. When we look at the percentages of properties that are non-decent, it becomes clear that these practices are not limited to the small number of rogue landlords. I will say more about that later. I note that the hon. Member for Brent North (Barry Gardiner) is in his place today. He and I share the challenge of trying to deal with the many...

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Bob Blackman: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. One of the concerns has to be that, when we empower tenants, we have to ensure that they understand their rights and also draw to landlords’ attention their duty to keep their homes safe. When the Select Committee conducted inquiries into these issues, we looked into the duties relating to electrical safety. The hon. Member for Sheffield...

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Bob Blackman: The hon. Gentleman reminds me of when I was at university in Liverpool. We all suffered appalling conditions in the private rented sector at that time. There are now many more students, all of whom need private rented accommodation for a time during their studies, and as he says, many of them are being exploited. However, they will often put up with conditions that others would not tolerate,...
