Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Affordable Housing: Capital Investment (30 Nov 2016)

Lord Horam: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the impact of increasing the ways in which public funding may be obtained under the Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes Programme, particularly with regard to (1) the number of additional new homes that could be built, (2) the speed of delivery of new homes, and (3) the ability of housing associations to innovate and...

Autumn Statement: Economy - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, this has been an interesting debate, thoughtfully started by my noble friend Lord Young of Cookham. He declared that he was a reformed character. Not too much reformed, I am glad to say—as we saw, he still retains his sense of humour and his remarkable stamina. He has sat throughout this entire debate and has already listened to 19 speakers, with another 20-odd to come. That is a...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Third Reading (23 Nov 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, the noble Baroness who proposed the amendment has the gift of coming up with interesting and appealing ideas, and this is one of them. I think that obviously we are all sympathetic to the issue of safety on buses; some instances recently, even in London, have been a matter of concern. I think also of the cycling situation in London, which is a problem. However, on this occasion I...

Housing - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2016)

Lord Horam: I think we are all glad that, at least in the House of Lords, the Labour Party still owes more to Methodism than to Marx.

Housing - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, we are all grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths of Burry Port, for introducing his debate on housing, which we all know is a central issue of our times. He did so with all the fluency one would expect of a minister of the Church without it ever quite sounding like a sermon. He was right to pinpoint the issue of the obligation of our generation and perhaps the generation after...

Brexit: Domestic and International - Motion to Take Note (27 Oct 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, I do not always listen to the Whips, but I will endeavour to do so on this occasion. I thank my noble friend Lord Leigh for this debate. As an economist, I certainly appreciate an economic debate, although I do not think “It’s the economy, stupid” all the time. None the less, I think we are glad to have an economic discussion. I also congratulate my noble friend Lord Gadhia on...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (12 Oct 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, I am a very strong supporter of the Bill and, like the previous speaker, I do not see why its benefits should be confined to mayoral combined authorities—why other authorities such as county councils cannot automatically invoke a franchise in the same way as mayoral combined authorities. That argument, which was stated at some length in Committee, has only been added to in the...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (4 Jul 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, I agree that there is no distinction, really, in accountability terms between a mayor and a councillor who is considering these matters. I strongly agreed with the remarks of the noble Baroness, Lady Jones, about London and London franchising. I live in London and I can certainly attest that what she said about that is entirely correct. London buses are, frankly, marvellous. Whether...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (4 Jul 2016)

Lord Horam: It is not just that the Explanatory Notes, which should explain what each clause does, do not explain why this does what it does; the overview, which we also get, does not explain it either.

EU Action Plan Against Migrant Smuggling (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 Jun 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, I think that all of us in the Chamber agree that international migration, wherever in the world it is, on the present scale is a huge problem. It is bad for the countries that originate it. For example, I learned recently that Jamaica loses over 80% of its graduates every year. Imagine trying to substantiate sensible systems of government if you are losing four-fifths of your...

EU Foreign and Security Strategy (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, the noble Earl, Lord Sandwich, who has just concluded his remarks, mentioned a previous report from the sub-committee on the European Union and Russia. He was on the committee at the time and I was not, so I can honestly say that it was a superb report and a great credit to the chairman, my noble friend Lord Tugendhat. I pay tribute to him, too, for his work during that period. It...

Housing and Planning Bill - Third Reading (27 Apr 2016)

Lord Horam: Perhaps I may add a third Conservative variant to the two that we have already had. The noble Lord, Lord Shipley, absolutely put his finger on the issue that we must not forget in all of this, which is social housing for rent. This is the fundamental point, among all the others, on which we have to focus in these amendments. To illuminate that, perhaps I may give the House some facts, as...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (3rd Day) (18 Apr 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, this is, I am afraid, an idea that probably looks good in the confines of the Treasury or in the rarefied world of special advisers in No. 10. In the real world outside it does not look so good. The noble Lord, Lord Kerslake, mentioned the late Bob Crow. I recognise, as the noble Lord said, that there is a case for saying that people on a higher income or earning over £100,000...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (11 Apr 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Taylor, said graciously that there has been a sea change in Government policy towards housing in the past year or so that recognises that there is obviously a severe problem in London and the south-east in particular, but also in other parts of the country. In debates on housing, we have heard occasionally from the noble Lord on the Liberal Democrat Benches...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Housing: Greater London (7 Apr 2016)

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Affordable Housing: Construction (4 Apr 2016)

Lord Horam: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many homes were completed under the Affordable Homes Programme launched in April 2011.

Housing and Planning Bill: Committee (9th Day) (23 Mar 2016)

Lord Horam: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, is definitely on to something here. What one reads about in the Evening Standardand elsewhere being done to basements is amazing. I do not know whether anyone else here watches the “Grand Designs” programme, but being an addict of property porn I watch it from time to time. Recently, there was an example of a small, typical mews house in a mews area of...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Housing: Construction (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Horam: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many of the one million new homes they aim to deliver during this Parliament are expected to be built by (1) housing associations, (2) local authorities, and (3) private housebuilders.

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Housing: Construction (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Horam: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many of the one million new homes they aim to deliver during this Parliament are estimated to be for (1) owner occupation, (2) shared ownership, and (3) rent; and how many of those homes for rent are expected to be for (a) affordable, and (b) social, rent.

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Housing: Construction (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Horam: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how the £20 billion they plan to spend on housing investment during this Parliament will be broken down between the various categories including affordable homes for rent and starter homes to buy.
