Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

Jo Stevens: The Bill is obviously necessary because of the bad behaviour of some landlords and letting agents. Without the measures that my hon. Friend set out, bad behaviour by rogue landlords and letting agents will not be prevented. They will carry on doing it because there is no sanction and no enforcement to stop them.

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

Jo Stevens: There are a lot of references in the Bill to upper limits and caps.

They will not put them further down—they will be right at the top end.

Jo Stevens: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Jo Stevens: I am very grateful to the right hon. Lady for giving way, but she knows, as does every Member of this House, that the boundary review will be based on information about the electorate that is years out of date, so why not scrap it and do it on the basis of the current electoral register?

Jo Stevens: My constituent Kashif Shabir, whom I have spoken about in several debates on this issue, has been the victim of exactly that, with Lloyds bank and Alder King surveyors in Bristol, resulting in the loss of his £10 million business. Does my hon. Friend agree with me that the bosses of both those organisations, Mr Horta-Osório and Mr Martyn Jones, should now proactively take steps to...

Business of the House (10 May 2018)

Jo Stevens: Tomorrow evening, Cardiff Blues will play in the final of the European challenge cup.

Rohingya: Monsoon Season — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (8 May 2018)

Jo Stevens: I thank the Minister for his remarks and everyone who has participated in the debate. It is most important that we do not forget the children, women and men in those camps. I welcome what the Government have done so far. I hope they continue to put international pressure on Burma and build a coalition against it so that we can see justice for the 1 million people who have suffered this...

Rohingya: Monsoon Season — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (8 May 2018)

Jo Stevens: I absolutely accept the Minister’s point about aid and outside agencies and countries directing the Bangladesh Government, but does he agree that, if millions of pounds of funding is being given to help, the Government have leverage to sort out these difficulties? There are practical difficulties of aid workers not being able to get into the camps to help.
