I also associate myself with his thanks to our advisers and staff. I started in this report’s final stages, so I also record my thanks to my noble friends Lady Bonham-Carter and Lady Benjamin— who preceded me and my noble friend Lord...

Rogue Landlords Register - Question (26 May 2021)

Baroness Grender: Given the Government’s original estimate that there are well over 10,000 rogue landlords and that there would be 600 banning orders a year—not seven, as is currently the case—and given that every one of these criminal and rogue landlords getting away with it means untold misery for thousands of tenants, what was the Minister’s response when he found out it was such a small number? As...

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (24 May 2021)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, as many noble Lords have said, this Bill is most welcome. I thank the Minister for the meeting that he held with me last week, but I think all of us would recognise that this is a first tentative dip of the toe into the vast lake that is leasehold reform. We all hope and are impatient to see the full-blown dive, and we want it to come soon. It was five years ago that the Leasehold...

Social Housing - Question (24 May 2021)

Baroness Grender: Does the Minister accept that, if house prices rose by 2.1% in April—the highest monthly increase since 2004—making homes more affordable is simply not working?

Would levelling up not be more achievable and better...

Levelling Up - Statement (18 Mar 2021)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, in answer to Clive Betts on Tuesday, the Minister, Eddie Hughes, clearly stated that the way of measuring the success of this programme will be at a general election.

What is the open, accessible way that the electorate will be enabled to judge whether this programme is a success—or, indeed, not a success, as...

Rough Sleeping - Statement (2 Mar 2021)

Baroness Grender: I thank all noble Lords, and in particular the noble Lord, Lord Wolfson, in his new role as Minister.

Public Health (Coronavirus) (Protection from Eviction) (England) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (2 Feb 2021)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, I too welcome the noble Lord, Lord Wolfson, to his new role. We welcome the extension to 21 February but, for well-being, security and public health arguments, we believe that extensions of these measures should be linked to extensions of lockdowns. We regret that, unlike the first lockdown, eviction notices can still be served under these rules. Given the UK and South African...
