Business and Planning Bill - Report: Amendment 56 (20 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I shall speak briefly to Amendment 56. I spoke in Committee on the need to avoid any unintended consequences of extending construction hours. There will be cases where an extension is entirely justified, and we should support that. But it is reasonable to expect that an impact assessment from the applicant with a description of how any adverse impact can be mitigated is provided....

Business and Planning Bill - Report: Amendment 29 (20 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 40 and support the case for it made so clearly by my noble friend Lord Paddick. I have had two concerns about off-sales during the passage of this Bill: first, off-sales being permitted after 11 pm and, secondly, the use in off-sales at any time of open glass or other containers that could easily be used to cause injury to another person. The Government...

Business and Planning Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (20 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, now that we have reached Report stage, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I shall be brief. My name is attached to Amendment 20, which is part of a group concerned with safety and accessibility for all who use the pavement. At previous stages of the Bill, I have emphasised the need to set clear and enforceable rules on the use of...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (17 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I will speak about stamp duty and the temporary change in policy being introduced. It is estimated that there could be 100,000 extra house sales in the next nine months. I accept the importance of that in reviving the housing market. When people move homes, they generate sales of fittings and materials for those new homes, which is an additional benefit. But I hope the scheme will...

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 76 (14 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I support the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy of Southwark. I spoke about this issue at Second Reading and said that there was a need for quarterly reviews of the practical operation of this legislation, with scope for amending it if there were unforeseen or unintended consequences. The Minister said that he did not wish to “compromise the stability” that the Government sought and...

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 52 (14 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, my name is attached to Amendments 52, 54 and 79. The noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh of Pickering, has made an excellent case for Amendment 52. I also fully support the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Randall of Uxbridge. These amendments are all broadly similar. It is important that no applications are permitted for changes to existing conditions if they are there to...

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 26 (13 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I want to speak to Amendment 45. I referred to the same issues raised by this amendment on the late night levy at Second Reading. On 8 June, I noticed an article in my local newspaper, the Journal, headed: “Campaigners Say Levy Should Be Cut To Save Pubs”. It said that fee levels, having been set by the Government, could be changed only by the Government and that the council...

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (13 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. My name is attached to Amendment 25. The noble Lord, Lord Holmes of Richmond, reminded us of the importance and the meaning of the words “guidance”, “may” and “consider”, while my noble friend Lady Thomas of Winchester reminded us that guidance can be unenforceable and that we need...

Written Answers — Treasury: Airports: Non-domestic Rates (8 Jul 2020)

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mortality Rates (7 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the data published by the Office for National Statistics which demonstrates that 19 local authorities in England have recorded excess death rates in 2020 that are more than twice the UK average excess death rates.

Business and Planning Bill - Second Reading (6 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I welcome the aims of the Bill, because it can help reduce lasting damage to the economy. The Bill is said by the Local Government Association to be a “positive step in the journey towards economic recovery” and I concur with its view. The broad aims of the Bill secured all-party support in the...

Covid-19: High Street Retailers - Question (2 Jul 2020)

Covid-19: Local Government Finance - Private Notice Question (29 Jun 2020)

Lord Shipley: Will the Minister confirm that the Government will not try to push a greater financial burden on to council tax payers to meet the current funding gap, which should be met nationally?

Covid-19 Update - Statement (25 Jun 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, the Statement says that the Government will work with the arts industry on specific guidance to enable choirs, orchestras and theatres to resume live performances as soon as possible. That is helpful but it is urgent financially. Seventy per cent of the UK’s theatre venues, for example, could be bankrupt by the end of the year because the one-metre rule means that only a quarter...

Covid-19: Furloughed Space Grant Scheme - Question (15 Jun 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for explaining that the Government are going to review business rates, which are part of this problem. Does she accept that the system of business rates, based on open market rental value, is effectively broken and that urgent action is required to reform the system?

Covid-19: Recovery Strategies - Motion to Take Note (11 Jun 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, we have learned much from Germany in recent months. Germany has met the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic far better than us. Its policy of test and trace and its devolved structure of government have resulted in a much lower death rate from Covid-19, which stands at a quarter of ours. Perhaps the Government will therefore now look very closely at how Germany is planning its...

Covid-19: Economy - Motion to Consider (4 Jun 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, it was reported yesterday that the US economy will take 10 years to recover from the pandemic—that is according to US government analysts. We know that something similar is likely for the UK. Our economy is in a state of shock, and it is estimated that Covid-19 could reduce GDP by well over 10%. To make matters worse, the Government seem intent on risking a no-deal Brexit, which...
