Backbench Business: Child Poverty: London (22 Feb 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this important debate. Does she agree with me that the role that the increase in the number of children living in the private rented sector has on child poverty is an important consideration? One in four children grow up in the private rented sector, more than a quarter of those homes do not meet the decent homes standard and almost half of those families...

Health and Social Care: Hospitals in Special Measures (6 Feb 2018)

Helen Hayes: The previous chair of King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust resigned because he had concluded that the funding provided for King’s had placed the trust in an impossible position. The current interim chair has said that the proportion of GDP spent on health and social care needs to rise to match that in other European countries if our NHS is to be sustainable. When will the...

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament (1 Feb 2018)

Helen Hayes: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament (1 Feb 2018)

Helen Hayes: I pay tribute to my right hon. and learned Friend and constituency neighbour for tabling this motion, and for her work over more than 30 years to advance equality for women in this place and in the wider world. Last week, I visited a girls’ secondary school in my constituency, where students asked me what it is like being a woman in the House of Commons. There were gasps in the room...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Reduction Targets (30 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: What assessment he has made of the UK’s ability to meet its carbon reduction targets.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Reduction Targets (30 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank the Minister for her tribute to my predecessor, Baroness Jowell, who is much loved in Dulwich and West Norwood. Southwark Council confirmed last week that it has invested its £150 million pension fund in a low-carbon investment, concluding that continuing to hold significant investments in fossil fuels in the context of climate change would present a long-term financial risk to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (25 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: Across Dulwich and West Norwood this winter we have once again seen a huge number of Thames Water leaks, many of them at sites where there have previously been repeated leaks. Last year, Thames Water reported operating profits of £650 million. It has a corporate structure involving offshore companies. The chair of Ofwat has highlighted the “urgent need for…a step change in...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homes for Social Rent (22 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: What recent assessment he has made of trends in the number of new homes for social rent since 2010.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homes for Social Rent (22 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: Whichever way Ministers try to present the figures, the number of genuinely affordable social homes built with public sector grants on their watch is pitiful. If the Minister will not accept Labour’s policy, will he accept the recommendation of the Treasury Committee by lifting the borrowing cap on councils’ housing revenue accounts completely to enable councils to build...

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: I want to draw the hon. Gentleman’s attention to the evidence that the Select Committee heard last Monday from Shelter, which said that, although the focus on rogue landlords was important, it was misleading to focus on them alone because the tenants experiencing poor-quality accommodation in the private rented sector were not limited to the relatively small number whose landlords could...

Supported Housing — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (18 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: On the point about the longevity of the ring fence, the Minister must surely recognise that the ring fence is only as secure as the Government of the day’s commitment to it. Even if the ring fence is somehow established in legislation, it can be overturned at the will of a subsequent Government. Could she please address the point, which is of grave concern across the sector, that a ring...

Supported Housing — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (18 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank the Minister for giving way again, but she simply makes the point that the ring fence provides no long-term assurance to the sector. Does she agree that it is inherently a short to medium-term measure, and that the sector cannot therefore be guaranteed that the ring fence will be there for the long term, as she indicates is her intention?

Supported Housing — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (18 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. I am pleased to speak in this debate as co-chair of the joint inquiry into the future of supported housing. It was a pleasure to work with the hon. Member for Gloucester (Richard Graham) and members of both Select Committees on the inquiry. It was a privilege to co-chair the inquiry on a part of the housing sector that makes a...

Supported Housing — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (18 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: I agree entirely with the sentiment that my hon. Friend expresses. We need to guarantee even, appropriate provision across the country. That is the problem we seek to solve, and so far there is no evidence that the Government’s response addresses that concern in any way. The second area I want to focus on is the funding of short-term supported housing. The inquiry report said:...

King’s College Hospital (16 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank the hon. Member for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich (Dr Poulter), who is not in his place, for bringing his experience to the debate. I am pleased that, having looked at the issue in some considerable detail when he was a Minister, he recognises, as the Minister seems not to, the problems that the merger of King’s with the Princess Royal and Orpington Hospital has caused for...

King’s College Hospital (16 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: I am grateful for that clarification, but that needs to be communicated very clearly to staff, who are feeling the pressure of this crisis. When we talk about efficiencies at King’s, they are in a lack of buildings, ward capacity and fit-for-purpose facilities to deliver when facing the challenges that are coming through its front door every single day. That matter urgently needs to be...

King’s College Hospital (16 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: The extent of the financial challenge facing King’s is well documented, and I recognise the figures that the Minister quotes. However, he has not yet recognised the extent of financial savings that King’s was already making. It is not an organisation that had been resisting the need to make savings; it has been making, on average, double the level of savings of any other trust in...

King’s College Hospital (16 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: I beg to move, That this House has considered King’s College Hospital finances. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I am pleased to have secured this debate on the finances at the King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which I have been seeking for some months. It has been clear to me that the trust has been heading towards a crisis, which came...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in my constituency, one of the largest trusts in the country, has recently been taken into financial special measures. Does my hon. Friend agree that the failure of King’s is a canary in a coalmine for the NHS, and must be a wake-up call for the Government on the level of resource that our outstanding NHS staff need so that they can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Frontline Police Officers (8 Jan 2018)

Helen Hayes: What the change in the number of frontline police officers is estimated to be between 2018 and 2020.
