Taylor Review: Working Practices (11 Jul 2017)

Teresa Pearce: Speaking at the launch this morning, Mr Taylor suggested that traditional cash-economy workers such as window cleaners could use an app to collect money and declare directly to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, so why does Uber, which has the most cutting-edge, fully automated app, not seem to declare the payments it makes to drivers directly to HMRC or to collect the national...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2017)

Teresa Pearce: Many care homes up and down the country are reliant on care workers from the EU; estimates suggest that there are about 100,000 workers. What meetings does the Secretary of State have with the care sector to reassure them that, when Britain leaves the EU, care homes will be adequately staffed with appropriately trained care workers?

Local Audit (Public Access to Documents) Bill: Inspection of accounting records by journalists and citizen journalists (24 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: I do not intend to make more than a few remarks on Third Reading, as this Bill has the support of the Opposition, the Government and the Local Government Association. It is a short, and welcome, piece of legislation which aims to improve transparency and accountability of local public bodies. In an era in which local newspapers are in many places diminishing and in some places do not exist at...

Local Audit (Public Access to Documents) Bill: Inspection of accounting records by journalists and citizen journalists (24 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the hon. Member for Aldridge-Brownhills (Wendy Morton) for introducing the Bill. As someone who has brought a private Member’s Bill to the House, I know the hard work that goes into it. Her Bill has got far further than my Bill did, and I wish her every success in taking it further. I do not intend to speak for too long. The Bill makes a relatively small change to existing...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank the hon. Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) for bringing the debate. It might not seem the most glamourous or exciting of topics, but keeping our communities clean and pleasant is a key part of local government’s remit. Ensuring that our streets, parks, playgrounds and open spaces are free from ugly, unhygienic dog...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: That’s it—I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention. It is a nasty infection that can lead to dizziness, nausea, asthma and even blindness and seizures. It is not surprising that 47% of people in the UK think that dog fouling is one of the most annoying things they experience in public places. I recently met with a group of cyclists who told me that one of the worst things they...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: I completely agree. There are particularly bad dog owners in some parks quite near where I live. To be quite honest, one would not want to confront them—or the dog—on any issue, because they are quite aggressive people. I did a very unscientific survey among my friends earlier today. I asked if they understood what bin to put dog mess in, and a huge proportion thought it could...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the hon. Lady for the clarification. Local authorities have been campaigning with public sector bodies such as Keep Britain Tidy and third sector organisations such as the Dogs Trust on the issue of dog fouling. Keep Britain Tidy’s 2010 campaign, “There’s no such thing as the dog poo fairy”, led to some communities seeing a 90% decrease in dog mess. The Dogs...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Social Services (14 Mar 2017)

Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Commencement (13 Dec 2016)

Teresa Pearce: At this relatively late hour, I do not wish to delay the House for long. Our position on Third Reading reflects much of what has been said about the Bill on Second Reading and in Committee. We believe that there are wasted opportunities to get legislation in place that would see an uplift not only in the number of houses that we build but the quality of those homes and the services and...

Casey Report (6 Dec 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the Chair of the Communities and Local Government Committee for asking this important urgent question. For too long as a country we have ignored these complex issues for fear of being seen as racist or as attacking cultural attitudes. Sadly, this approach has left a vacuum that has been exploited by those who exist to promote hatred. It is time that we recognised the problems and...
