Deaths of Homeless People (20 Dec 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: The Secretary of State said that no one should die from being homeless, but these statistics show that they clearly are, and in ever greater numbers. He rightly talked about early intervention and prevention. What is he doing personally within Government to lobby for reverses to cuts to drug and alcohol support services?

Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Letting Agents (17 Dec 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to Paragraph 66 of the consultation paper entitled, Protecting consumers in the letting and managing agent market: call for evidence, published by his Department in October 2017, on what dates the meetings held by the Technical Group on an update of Section 20 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 took place.

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (12 Dec 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: As the right hon. Lady reflects on her premiership, may I ask her which of the following judgments she most regrets: laying down red lines before the Brexit talks had even begun; wasting precious negotiating time on a general election; or consistently failing to face down the hardliners on her own Benches and reach out to forge a consensus in this House and the country?

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigrants: EU Nationals (10 Dec 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the Prime Minister’s statement on the EU negotiations on 21 September 2018, whether people who derive residency rights (a) as (i) a Chen carer (ii) an Ibrahim child (iii) a Teixeira child (iv) an Ibrahim carer (v) a Teixeira carer and (b) under the Surinder Singh route will have their rights protected in the event that...

Written Answers — Treasury: Brexit (6 Dec 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 26 November 2018 to Question 194204 on Brexit and with reference to paragraph 4.111 of the Office for Budget Responsibility's Economic and Fiscal Outlook published in October 2018, what proportion of the £400 million underspend relates to the UK leaving the EU.

Exiting the European Union: No-deal Legislation (6 Dec 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: The Office for Budget Responsibility’s analysis of the recent Budget suggested that there could be an underspend of up to £400 million in the £1.6 billion Brexit funding pot that the Chancellor allocated back in March to prepare for leaving the EU. Will the Secretary of State tell the House precisely how much of that Brexit funding pot has not yet been spent?

Exiting the European Union: No-deal Legislation (6 Dec 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: Given that the Department’s role is now largely confined to domestic preparations for exit, many will find that answer deeply troubling. But it is not surprising that no-deal preparations are not being taken seriously, because they have been a bluff from the start. Yesterday, the Chancellor told the Treasury Committee that the infrastructure works needed to prepare the port of Dover for an...

Heat Networks Regulation (28 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: I agree with the Minister. At the moment, technology and confidence in it is being put at risk by the fact that consumers on many schemes—not all—are not getting a good deal. Would the Minister give us a sense of the timeline that the Department is thinking about for legislation and providing that extra protection? I have been campaigning for more than three years, ever since I was...

Heat Networks Regulation (28 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. Like her, I have thousands of constituents locked into those schemes who are paying over the odds and have no means of effective redress. The Competition and Markets Authority recommended in its report in July that the Government regulate this sector by statutory regulation, as my hon. Friend suggests. Does she agree that the...

South Eastern Rail Franchise — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (27 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this debate. Many of my constituents are disappointed that the Government changed their mind and ultimately decided not to hand responsibility for the service to Transport for London. Knowing that the franchise will be renewed, they are worried that the renewal might be delayed. Earlier this year, we were promised that there would be an...

Written Answers — Treasury: Brexit (26 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 8 November 2018 to Question 185719 on Brexit and with reference to paragraph 4.111 of the OBR’s Economic and Fiscal Outlook published in October 2018, how much of the current £0.4 billion underspend estimate is within the Brexit funding pot.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Southeastern (22 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: What recent discussions his Department has had with Southeastern on (a) timetabling and (b) performance standards.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Southeastern (22 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: Given their experience in recent years, many of my constituents are looking to the next operator of the Southeastern franchise to significantly improve timetabling performance. With that end in mind, will the Minister—whom I warmly welcome to his post—confirm that the Department still expects to announce the winning bidder this month and reassure passengers that the start of the new...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Maintained Nursery School Funding (12 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: What recent assessment he has made of the adequacy of funding for maintained nursery schools.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Maintained Nursery School Funding (12 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: With the two-year transitional funding ending soon and the comprehensive spending review not expected until the summer, maintained nursery schools in my constituency are desperately struggling to plan and budget for the future. Until secure and sustainable funding arrangements are put in place, will the Minister at least commit to further additional transitional funding to protect maintained...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigrants: Detainees (8 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he has made an assessment of the implications for his Department’s policies of the recommendations contained in the Independent Monitoring Board's Charter Flights Annual Report of (a) 2016 and (b) 2017.

Police Pension Liabilities (6 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: Will the Minister confirm that, alongside the cuts that will fall on police, our fire services are also liable for costs in the region of hundreds of millions of pounds? What is he going to do about that?

Universal Credit (5 Nov 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: The full service was rolled out in Greenwich on 3 October and I am extremely concerned about the number of people locally who appear to be claiming universal credit when it is not necessary for them to do so and who are worse off as a result. What more can the Secretary of State’s Department do, particularly in terms of training and information sharing among organisations on the ground, to...

Exiting the European Union: No Deal: UK Border Delays (25 Oct 2018)

Matthew Pennycook: As you will know, Mr Speaker, Labour’s 2017 general election manifesto was rightly hailed as a transformative blueprint for a Britain that works for the many, not the few, but even we did not go so far as to propose the nationalisation of roll-off, roll-on lorry ferries. In addition to contingency plans for Government-owned or operated logistics, can the Secretary of State tell us which...
