Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Sep 2018)

Helen Hayes: It has been reported this morning that the Treasury and No. 10 are blocking plans for legally binding three-year tenancies for private renters. This is of great concern to private renters in my constituency, including many families sending their children back to school this week who do not know where they will be living this time next year. Will the Prime Minister make a clear promise to...

Windrush (4 Sep 2018)

Helen Hayes: The appalling treatment of the Windrush generation and their descendants extends far beyond those who have come forward to contact the Home Office team to date. Many of my constituents are living in fear and deep mistrust of the Home Office—not least because of the continual conflation with illegal immigration in discussions of Windrush, which we have heard again from the Minister...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (23 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: In the last year, just 12% of homes delivered by housing associations—the very organisations set up to deliver affordable homes—were built for social rent. Will the Secretary of State confirm that the social housing Green Paper will acknowledge that the combination of viability assessments and a completely broken definition of affordability is letting down communities across the...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (19 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: I understand that the Secretary of State, as a member of the campaign committee of Vote Leave—the campaign committee met weekly, according to Vote Leave’s website, to agree the leave campaign’s strategy—may not want to comment on this week’s findings of the Electoral Commission until he has spoken to the police, who are investigating those findings, so I ask him...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: Participants in multi-level marketing schemes, 75% of whom are women, sign up to the opportunity to earn income flexibly from home, often attracted by outlandish lifestyle claims made on social media. In reality many participants earn no income and many end up in debt. Will the Secretary of State introduce a requirement on MLMs to publish an independently audited annual statement of net...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Windrush Compensation (16 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: What steps he is taking to provide compensation to Windrush migrants.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Windrush Compensation (16 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: The Windrush scandal and the Government’s wider hostile environment policy have created an urgent need for independent advice for Windrush citizens seeking to confirm their status and access compensation. As there is no trust in the Home Office, the Black Cultural Archives in my constituency has for several months been running legal advice clinics for Windrush citizens, staffed by...

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: The right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) raised the issue of St Andrew’s in Northampton having been able to expand so significantly with the benefit of NHS funding—I cannot remember the exact percentage, but the percentage of funding that comes from the NHS for St Andrew’s is up in the eighties and nineties. Does she agree that this is not the right model and...

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: I am grateful to the Backbench Business Committee for allocating time for the debate and to the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) for securing it. I am also grateful for his commitment to this issue over many years. It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Chesham and Amersham (Dame Cheryl Gillan). I am grateful, too, for her deep commitment to, and knowledge of,...

Transforming Care Programme (5 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his intervention. I also visited St Andrew’s and, when I returned, I looked at how it was advertising its services and compared that with what I saw. I would go so far as to say that, in any consumer environment, a good case could be made that St Andrew’s was contravening the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 in how it was advertising itself, given...

Ministry of Justice: Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2018)

Helen Hayes: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Mid Worcestershire (Nigel Huddleston) and to speak in the estimates day debate to mark the 70th anniversary of our NHS—the most remarkable achievement of a Labour Government to provide free healthcare for all, free at the point of delivery. I want to speak about King’s College Hospital—a major teaching hospital, tertiary...

Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee (28 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: I congratulate my hon. Friend and the hon. Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston) on their leadership on this issue. The inquiry’s report provides incontrovertible evidence of the crisis facing social care funding. I particularly welcome the recommendation that social care should be provided to those who need it free at the point of delivery, and the very practical recommendations for...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Property Rental Market (18 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: The legal framework and guidance governing the relationship between lodgers and landlords has not been updated since 2006, pre-dating the growth in online lettings platforms and the affordability crisis, which has led many more people to become both landlords and lodgers. In this relationship, both parties can find themselves vulnerable. The current framework of protection is not fit for...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: I wish to thank Members from across the House for contributing to this debate, but I am particularly grateful to my right hon. Friends the Members for Hackney North and Stoke Newington (Ms Abbott) and for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) and my hon. Friend the Member for Brent Central (Dawn Butler), because their contributions have been not only representation but very powerful testimony. We are about...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: I beg to move, That this House notes the 70th anniversary of the arrival of HMT Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks carrying passengers from the Caribbean; further notes the critical role those passengers played in the post-war reconstruction of the UK, and in particular their work to support the establishment of the newly created NHS; and recognises and celebrates the significant social,...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention and will come later to exactly those issues, which she raises so powerfully. Sam King said of his decision to join the RAF: “'I as a young man volunteered to contribute and fight Nazi Germany and by the Grace of God we won. It was a close thing, for example during Dunkirk a lot of people don’t realise that Britain stood alone, for nearly...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, and I agree entirely with his comments. Windrush passengers from the Caribbean travelled as British citizens as a result of the British Nationality Act 1948, which created a new category of “citizen of the United Kingdom and colonies” for anyone born or naturalised in either the UK or any of the countries subject to colonial rule....

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: My hon. Friend is exactly right. Many nurses trained in London and were then placed in hospitals all around the country. They were part of that outward move from London to all over the country, where they indeed made, and continue to make, such an important contribution. Windrush passengers also found work on London transport and in the construction industry. Some rejoined the armed forces...

Backbench Business - Windrush: 70TH Anniversarybackbench Business (14 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: I thank my right hon. Friend for her intervention. I am delighted to wholeheartedly support the call for action that she and her Select Committee have made. I have seen myself, through very many constituency cases, the hardship that this Government’s approach is causing. There is a need for urgent action in the interim as well as for compensation in the longer term for all who are...

Rail Timetabling (4 Jun 2018)

Helen Hayes: My constituents have already faced three years of disruption and continual delays at the hands of GTR, Southern and Southeastern, and the chaos from the new timetable is making things worse. The impact of that chaos is more than simply inconvenience; it is taking its toll on relationships, family life and employment, and we have the heart-rending sight of students unable to get to important...
