Social Media - Question for Short Debate (11 Jul 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, I congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of St Albans on securing this debate, and the Church of England on the publication of its guidelines. For me, as a person of no faith, their inclusion of people like me—and indeed of other faiths—is also welcome. I note that there are nine codes in total and five principles. While we were on the artificial intelligence Select...

Homes for Social Rent - Question (2 Jul 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, does the Minister accept that the £2 billion put into the not very affordable housing programme falls woefully short of the £14.6 billion per year of capital grant recommended last week by the National Housing Federation and others? Without it, we will continue to see the nearly 40-year legacy of chronic failure to build social, not affordable, housing—a policy that has now...

Homelessness - Question (21 May 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, given that the Minister sees the private rented sector as part of the solution, does he accept that the shortfall between the local housing allowance and rent has more than doubled since the benefit freeze was introduced in 2016? Does he also accept that, as a result, and because they are in debt by more than £100 a month, people are now having to choose between food and rent?...

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

Baroness Grender: I thank all speakers. I will study Hansard for the breadth and depth, which has made the debate such a hard thing to respond to, but therein lies a tale: this is why we need more concentration on young people as a policy discipline. I will mention a couple of quick policy issues. The £1.3 billion referred to for schools was actually raided from existing capital expenditure. And I think that...

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

Baroness Grender: I cannot think of a better group of speakers to join me for the next two and half hours to shine some light on this all-important issue. I thank in advance all noble Lords participating in this debate. I also welcome our young guests in the Gallery, the participants in the webinar we held last night, and the responses to the Twitter poll we held this morning in advance of this debate. I worry...

Housing: No-fault Evictions - Question (15 May 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, is the Minister aware that since Scotland scrapped no-fault evictions over a year ago, ONS data suggests that rental inflation has remained lower, the private rented sector has remained stable, and the change has not had an adverse impact on homeless people? There was a time when a Conservative Government thought it was perfectly normal to implement a change in Scotland, see how it...

Online Harms White Paper - Motion to Take Note (30 Apr 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, it is excellent to follow the noble Lord, Lord Brooke, because I have worked with him on areas of addiction. I know of his campaigning in this area, and I admire and follow with interest his constant insistence on connecting it to health. I also thank the Minister for providing us with this debate. As the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths, rightly described it, it has been a good...

Online Harms - Statement (8 Apr 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, does the Minister plan to watch the last ever episode of the hugely successful comedy “Fleabag”, by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, tonight? Does he agree that it is perfectly possible to have brilliant and base dramas like “Fleabag” while protecting our children and the most vulnerable, and that Ofcom and other regulators have delivered that objective, balancing freedom of speech and...

Property Guardians - Question (26 Mar 2019)

Baroness Grender: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to ensure that property guardians are legally protected.

Property Guardians - Question (26 Mar 2019)

Baroness Grender: I thank the Minister for a meeting with him about this last week. Will he use this opportunity to reassure the growing number of property guardians that the full force of the current law will be applied and new regulations considered? Will he also make clear that the clauses that these people sign, which include no talking to the media or local authorities, mean nothing if they live with...

Public Authorities: Algorithms - Question (14 Mar 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, when the Chancellor asks the Competition and Markets Authority to scrutinise the transparency of Google and Facebook, are the Government confident that they are applying the same rules of transparency to public services in the UK? Is not waiting for an interim report a little bit too late, when the HART system used by Durham Police to predict reoffending, for example, is already...

Brexit: Museums and Galleries - Question (4 Mar 2019)

Baroness Grender: My Lords, given last week’s finding of the employment tribunal regarding the National Gallery 27, which supported their legal claim to worker status—having been denied it for decades—does the Minister regret that precious resource from a DCMS body was spent in legal action to justify shoddy work practices? Will he ensure that their claim is settled soon and that the National Gallery is...

Short-term Lettings - Question (26 Feb 2019)

Baroness Grender: Did the Minister see BBC London’s documentary last night, in which undercover work revealed that three private sector companies were helping private landlords find their way round the 90-day limit in London? Does he agree with Generation Rent that the data should now definitely be released to local authorities, because otherwise it is almost impossible for local authorities to enforce?

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Empty Property: Security (25 Feb 2019)

Baroness Grender: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the risk to property guardians in buildings owned by (1) the government, (2) local government, and (3) statutory bodies.
