Affordable Housing - Question (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I refer the House to my interests in the register. A few days ago, at the Housing 2019 conference, the Prime Minister said that, “we are delivering a whole new approach to social housing … Because this is a Government with a bold vision for housing and a willingness to act on it”. Can the Minister can tell the House what that bold vision is for social housing?

Future of Seaside Towns - Motion to Take Note (1 Jul 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I am very grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Faulkner of Worcester. The House should know that there has been no choreography between his speech and mine, but he referred to the 2,260 objectors to the closure of the Whitby lines and I was one of them. I attended each day of the hearing of the Transport Users Consultative Committee in the Spa theatre in Whitby. I shall not repeat the...

Benefit Changes: Vulnerable People - Motion to Take Note (27 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Low of Dalston. He made a compelling case in support of blind and partially sighted claimants, and his criticism of work capability assessments for blind and partially sighted people was particularly crucial in that. I am grateful to my noble friend Lady Janke for leading this excellent debate. She talked about how the...

Late Payments - Statement (19 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, what thought have the Government given to introducing ring-fenced bank accounts for major government projects delivered by the private sector, so that subcontractors are guaranteed prompt payment and do not have to worry about the main contractor’s financial health? I understand that the policy is supported by the Federation of Small Businesses and was recently adopted by the...

Children’s Health: Vehicle Emissions - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Russell of Liverpool. He said that this was a human rights issue that requires cross-party action locally and nationally, and I agree entirely with him. I remind the House of my registered interests. I find the evidence, both before this debate in preparing for it and in the speeches made in it, to be compelling. My noble friend Lady...

Grenfell Response - Statement (10 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House of my interests as set out in the register. I want to raise two issues about tenants’ rights, both of which have been proposed by Grenfell United. The first is that there should be a new, separate consumer protection regulator to protect tenants and change the culture of social housing across the country—in other words, not just leaving everything within the...

Ford in Bridgend - Statement (10 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, the Minister has made a number of comments about a no-deal Brexit. Is he aware of an Oxford University study published in April predicting that the UK car industry could shrink by almost half by the mid-2020s in a no-deal Brexit? If so, does he agree that the election of a Conservative leader and Prime Minister who promotes no deal is not in the interests of the British car industry?

Employment - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hurley, for the opportunity to hold this debate. A few years ago, I had the privilege of leading Newcastle City Council, and I remember being asked in an interview what I worried about most as council leader. I think the expectation was that I would reply, “Keeping council tax down”, or perhaps, “Getting re-elected”, but I actually said that I...

Housing: Social Rent - Question (4 Jun 2019)

Lord Shipley: I thank the Minister for his reply. He will be aware that there is a difference between affordable and social housing. He will also be aware that this year marks the centenary of the housing Act 1919, which created council and social housing. Given the scale of homelessness today, and given that waiting lists for social housing stand at over a million households, does the Minister accept that...

Public Procurement and the Civil Society Strategy - Motion to Take Note (23 May 2019)

Lord Shipley: My query specifically related to whether it was simply advisory for local government or whether local government should be required to do what central government departments do.

Public Procurement and the Civil Society Strategy - Motion to Take Note (23 May 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I should remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady McGregor-Smith, for enabling us to have this debate. She made a large number of important points in her speech. I was struck by her observation that the government consultation is too narrow and that far more could be achieved, and particularly by her view that...

Equality of Opportunity for Young People - Motion to Take Note (16 May 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to follow the noble Earl, Lord Listowel, and for his very honest and thoughtful contribution to this debate. He has reminded us of the complex needs of children and young people, and I particularly appreciated the international comparisons that he drew to our attention. This debate has raised a large number of concerns, to which I want to add two...

Social Housing: Older People - Question (9 May 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, in February last year—15 months ago—the Communities and Local Government Select Committee reported on its inquiry into housing for older people. It had 41 recommendations. Eight months ago, in September 2018, the Government’s response was published. It left many questions unanswered, but it did say this: “We have been clear that we will consider housing as we develop...

School Exclusion: Timpson Review - Statement (7 May 2019)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, the Minister talked of the need for a careful consultation—I am sure that is right—but one of the conclusions of that consultation may well be that extra cash is needed. Is any bid being made by the department to the spending review? If there is not a request for additional funding, it could have to top-slice its own budgets, and obviously it is important that any such...
