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

Luke Hall: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate and to follow some fantastic and informative contributions from both sides of the House. I too will be brief, because I know a number of Members wish to contribute. I start by welcoming the Minister to her place and by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Harrow East (Bob Blackman) on all his work on his Homelessness Reduction Act 2017. I...

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

Luke Hall: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. This Bill not only gives the power to hold landlords to account by making them carry out the works; it also gives the power to instruct compensation, which is a real strength. The Bill achieves all that while still being proportionate. It is not overly burdensome on landlords because of the simple principle that it should not increase costs or create...

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Luke Hall: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate and to follow two of my constituency neighbours— the hon. Member for Stroud (Dr Drew) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Forest of Dean (Mr Harper), who made an excellent speech. I am afraid that I may not be as fluent or have the same stamina as my right hon. Friend, but I will try to make some of the same points. I also will refer to some...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Polio (29 Nov 2017)

Luke Hall: I thank the Minister for that answer. May I also take the opportunity to welcome the leadership the Government have shown in the battle to eradicate polio from the face of this earth?

How quickly will the recommendations be implemented so that we can ensure we are doing everything possible to protect this magnificent species?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Strategic Road Network: Congestion (19 Oct 2017)

Luke Hall: I thank the Minister for that answer, and I welcome the Government’s investment in a feasibility study into finally building junction 18A on the M4. However, one of the options under consideration is to build that new junction at Pucklechurch, which would devastate the local green belt and divide two extremely historic communities. With the decision expected early next year, residents...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Luke Hall: I am grateful to have a chance to speak in a debate that has had well-informed contributions from Members on both sides of the House. Rather than going over all the arguments we have heard so far, I want to talk about a couple of personal examples I encountered in my previous career in retail, which show why this reform is so important in creating a system where it does pay to work. Retail is...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Luke Hall: As I say, my experience for many years has been of a hugely detrimental experience for people who try to work over the 16 hours if they are pushed to do so. So I do not accept the point, because I think the work coaches genuinely help people with their confidence in order to move forward. I have seen real-life experiences of that in Tesco and Aldi in my constituency, where I have spoken to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2017)

Luke Hall: Following the rather flaccid response from the Leader of the Opposition, may I welcome the announcement that the Government are scrapping the universal credit helpline charges—a move that demonstrates that the Government are supporting people who want to get up, work hard and get on in life? Can the Prime Minister now confirm that all welfare claim DWP helplines will be completely free...
