Grenfell Tower (19 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: I was troubled to hear the Secretary of State tell the Communities and Local Government Committee that councils would be expected to reprioritise in order to complete essential fire safety works post-Grenfell. Will he confirm whether it is my constituents living in temporary accommodation and desperately waiting for a new home or those waiting for much-needed major works who should be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding (16 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: Last month, my constituent Jude Gayle, a young father, was stabbed to death as he returned home—yet another tragic and senseless loss in a growing number of knife attacks, which are up 20% in London over the past year. Will the Home Secretary finally accept that cutting hundreds of millions of pounds from the Metropolitan police budget since 2010 is a reckless approach to the safety and...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: I thank all hon. Members who have contributed and taken the time to be here. I particularly thank everybody for their forbearance with the interruptions of the Division bell—including yourself, Mr Gapes. We are nearly at the end of the debate. I pay particular tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill (Hugh Gaffney), who spoke with such passion and...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: It has been my experience in my constituency that the lack of an obligation on Royal Mail itself to consult the public is a huge omission in that process. Royal Mail relies on notifying the local MP and assuming that the news will somehow get out. Of course we make a noise about it, but that is no substitute for the organisation itself consulting and engaging with the public it serves. Will...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: I beg to move, That this House has considered Royal Mail delivery office closures. It is a real pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. I was prompted to seek the debate because my constituency is threatened with the closure of two delivery offices, and I understand the impact that those closures will have on my constituents if they go ahead. I also want to highlight the wider...

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: My hon. Friend’s intervention is well made. I will come on to talk about the impact that the closures will have on vulnerable constituents in my constituency and elsewhere.

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: It is a problem across the country that where delivery offices are being closed, the receipts from the sale of that land are recouped entirely for the benefit of shareholders and not reinvested in alternative facilities for customers.

Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Helen Hayes: My right hon. Friend is right to make that point. Extended delivery hours at a location very far from where residents live is no substitute for having a facility directly in their community. That is exactly the issue we are debating. There is also a significant problem for customers who pay to use the PO box service, for the confidentiality and convenience that provides, and for whom Royal...
