Covid-19 (Public Services Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Jul 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. First, I congratulate the committee on its report and thank the noble Baroness, Lady Armstrong, for her introduction. She is absolutely right in calling for us to learn the lessons of how public services have been delivered—or, indeed, not delivered—during the pandemic. She also talked about the...

Council Tax - Question (22 Jul 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I refer the House to my registered interests. What consideration will the Government give to the potential benefit of a proportional property tax, as recommended by the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee to replace council tax and business rates in its report published earlier this week?

Wellbeing of Future Generations Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 Jun 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Bates. I agree entirely with what he has just said. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for the opportunity afforded by his Private Member’s Bill, which I warmly welcome for both its proposals and its timeliness. It offers a resetting of how we construct public policy, and, for that reason, it is to be strongly welcomed. I hope that...

Covid-19: Children - Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Morris, for the opportunity to have this debate today and for her very persuasive explanation of the issues in her introduction. I am genuinely puzzled by Treasury attitudes towards catch-up funding. I do not understand why the Treasury opposed the £15 billion levelling-up money recommended for the next three years, instead agreeing to only £1.4...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Jun 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her introduction to the Bill which, in many respects, I welcome very strongly. It has a sense of direction; the Government have clearly been listening to the advice of employers and the education sector. I very much look forward to hearing shortly the maiden speech of the noble Baroness, Lady Black of Strome. I cannot recall a time when there has not been a...

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House of my register of interests and beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper.

Social Housing - Question (24 May 2021)

Lord Shipley: I thank the Minister for his reply. House prices have been rising steadily because of demand-side subsidies by the Government for owner-occupation, yet the National Housing Federation estimates that almost 4 million people need the security of a home for social rent because they cannot afford to buy. I ask the Minister whether he thinks that the Government have got their priorities right.

House of Lords: Remote Participation and Hybrid Sittings - Motion to Take Note (20 May 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb. She made a number of important points, although I would not agree with all of them. A very wide range of views has been expressed in the debate, which is helpful to our deliberations. If we take the opportunity, this extremely valuable debate can improve the way the House works. The crisis of the last 14...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 May 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I too congratulate the noble Lords, Lord Coaker and Lord Morse, on their excellent maiden speeches. This has been a challenging debate for the Government, partly because of what is not in the gracious Speech, such as local government funding reform, including business rates reform, the Government’s...

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - Motion for an Humble Address (12 Apr 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I had the privilege of meeting His Royal Highness Prince Philip on several occasions when he visited Newcastle upon Tyne on official visits. He had a particular attachment to the River Tyne. This originated in the earlier years of the Second World War and the duties he undertook in the Royal Navy as first lieutenant and second-in-command of HMS “Wallace” as it provided escort...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Local Government: Audit (22 Mar 2021)

Public Health (Coronavirus) (Protection from Eviction) (England) (No. 2) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve (18 Mar 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I too very much look forward to hearing the maiden speech of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Etherton, this afternoon. A further extension to the ban on bailiff enforcement is right, given the long duration of the pandemic, but the previous debate on private rented sector evictions was only a few weeks ago, which makes me ask why the Government keep coming back with short...

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Social Services (17 Mar 2021)

Lord Shipley: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many local authorities in England delivering adult social care have increased their adult social care precept for 2021/2022 by (1) 3, (2) 2–2.99, (3) 1–1.99, and (4) 0–0.99, per cent.

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (12 Mar 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, first, I congratulate all noble Lords making their maiden speeches today. I will talk about English regional policy. The Industrial Strategy Council, now abolished, said that, in Europe, only Poland and Romania had larger regional productivity gaps than the UK. The Government seem to want to recognise that in Build Back Better: Our Plan for Growth. But, as my noble friend Lord Fox,...

Lord Shipley: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to repeal the Vagrancy Act 1824.

Police and Crime Commissioner Elections (Welsh Forms) Order 2021 - Motion to Approve (4 Mar 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, first, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Hannan of Kingsclere, on his maiden speech. We very much look forward to his future contributions to the work of this House. I want to pick out one thing from his speech. He said that we need to give more meaning to the importance of casting a vote; I agree entirely with him on that. I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the...

Building Safety - Statement (22 Feb 2021)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. Those in a flat 19 metres high will have unsafe cladding replaced at no cost, and that is welcome. Those in a flat 17 metres high will have to pay up to £50 a month for an unknown period. Why do the Government think that is fair?

Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (18 Jan 2021)

Lord Shipley: I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. First, I want to agree with the concerns expressed by the noble Baroness, Lady Andrews, on the Non-Domestic Rating (Public Lavatories) Bill. I welcome the decision to combine the two Bills for Second Reading, given that there has already been a Second Reading of the Non-Domestic Rating (Public Lavatories) Bill....
