Amendments to the Code of Conduct (23 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: Worry not, Madam Deputy Speaker; I can say it in two minutes. I very much welcome the Leader of the House’s comments. I do not think he expected at the beginning of his career that he would be changing the constitution quite so much; it must be a tiny bit painful. I simply want to say that a debate in the House, even with the constraints that the right hon. Gentleman has attempted to...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Defences for victims of domestic abuse who commit an offence (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: It seems almost unfair on the Minister that I get the last word on a Bill that she introduced, but that is the system. I welcome what she said, and I will take up that issue with the Under-Secretary of State for Justice, the hon. Member for Cheltenham, and with the Prison Reform Trust. I am very interested in—but unsurprised about—the idea that, in the Modern Slavery Bill, there is...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Joint tenancies: removal of a tenant (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: It is pleasing to hear that the issue of joint tenancies is being looked into. As I said to the hon. Member for Darlington, these issues will undoubtedly come up in the Lords, where some very eminent people will wish to look over them, so I will withdraw the motion and look forward to progress being made. On local connection, if we do not do something in regulations, the issue will continue...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Defences for victims of domestic abuse who commit an offence (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Defences for victims of domestic abuse who commit an offence (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: I thought the hon. Gentleman was intervening on me before I had even spoken, which would have been a bold move. I did not know where we were going with that, but I echo the hon. Gentleman’s words. I do not think anyone would ever question the dedication of the right hon. Member for Maidenhead to domestic abuse services. I knew her in my former life. When she was the Home Secretary, she...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Defences for victims of domestic abuse who commit an offence (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: I cannot speak for the typo, but the new clause is almost exactly, word for word, based on what the Modern Slavery Act says about modern slavery. It may well be a typo, although, having said that, I cannot absolutely vouch for it not being one. However, as somebody who has had some success with my ability to write, I do find that the law is sometimes difficult to read. It could be a mistake...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Joint tenancies: removal of a tenant (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: I am more than happy to answer that. I am quite fond of the particular bit of statutory guidance she refers to, because it did not actually exist until a woman who lived in the refuge where I worked took a case against Sandwell Borough Council regarding her local connections. Currently, the statutory guidance is explicit about refuge accommodation. This woman was living in a refuge, many...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Joint tenancies: removal of a tenant (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: No, they absolutely are carrying out their statutory duty, but the statutory duty is only about refuge—unlike the statutory guidance regarding servicemen and women, which is that they are allowed to move without local connection, recognising that base life does not necessarily mean that they are based in a place, so they might not have a local connection, as well as tipping the hat to...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Joint tenancies: removal of a tenant (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: If you are going to ask me a detailed question about tenancy law, I have prepared myself for that.

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Joint tenancies: removal of a tenant (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: It absolutely cannot do that, and we must consider the politics of priorities in these circumstances. I do not pick these amendments out of the air, much as I love to pore over tenancy law. They are usually brought to me by people who have been in these specific circumstances. It is an incredibly pernicious thing, and it can be seen when people are left with problems, less so with damage to...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Joint tenancies: removal of a tenant (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: That is a reasonable point. This definitely happens, so I am more than happy for those issues to be dealt with as we go through this process. One thing about this Bill going through to the Lords is that it has some really keen experts who know an awful lot about housing law; I have been a licensed landlord through running refuges and other things, so I know a little bit about the law in this...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Victims of domestic abuse: data-sharing for immigration purposes (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: I do not doubt the Minister’s sincerity in wanting to ensure that this matter is sorted out. She invoked the public, and she is right that the public would expect people to live within the rules. However, I think if we asked the general public, “Would you rather a rapist was not reported or that somebody got to stay in the country a bit longer?”, they would be on the side of ensuring...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Abuse Bill: Joint tenancies: removal of a tenant (17 Jun 2020)

Jess Phillips: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.
