Confidence in the Secretary of State for Transport (19 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend is making a good speech. Yesterday, members of the Transport Committee sat for many hours interrogating leaders of the industry, both train operating companies and Network Rail, trying to find out who runs the railways. After all those hours, answer came there none. Does my hon. Friend agree that there are two scenarios? First, the Secretary of State is in charge, in which...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Enforcement by local weights and measures authorities (12 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend is giving a very good speech. I think we were all in the evidence session the other day when we heard from the CTSI, which made it very clear why it is so important that we get this right. My experience in this place in the last three years is that we have seen successive pieces of legislation that we are pretty sure are not going to get enforced. Does my hon. Friend agree that...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Permitted payments (7 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, but she has a tendency, as all London MPs do, to constantly refer to London, which I entirely understand. I suggest that she looks a bit further up the country to an area such as mine, which displays similar attributes to London. There are always different views on exactly what average rents are, but something like £1,000 to £1,200 is...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (7 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I would ask the Minister to think a little—I have examples in my own area—not about properties at the lower end of the market, but about new properties where there are shared heating schemes. I am not as convinced as he is that people moving into those properties are fully aware of the scale of charges they may face. There are disputes going on currently around this, because...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (7 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. The future that my hon. Friend describes has already come to pass in many parts of the country. At least a quarter of properties in Cambridge are now in the private rented sector. The Bill is welcome in many ways, but I worry that it will not necessarily keep up with the changing business models emerging in many places. There is a...

Daniel Zeichner: Will my hon. Friend give way on that point?

Airports National Policy Statement — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (7 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: The element of risk in this whole process is an important point. The Committee identified many risks. In the event of a delay or the project not going forward, would it not make sense for the Government to consider using alternative provision where there is capacity at other airports, such as Gatwick and Stansted? There is a real risk with this project and we cannot end up in a situation in...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Examination of Witnesses (7 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I want to pick up on the point in the evidence from the CTSI about the rise of alternative business models—certainly in my city, and I also did some work with myQ hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool South (Gordon Marsden) in Blackpool on this issue. I just wonder whether you feel that the Bill as it is currently framed would deal with some of those issues, or whether there is a...

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Examination of Witnesses (7 Jun 2018)

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: It has been a good debate and there have been many thoughtful contributions from all sides. I joined the Petitions Committee only recently, and this is the first time I have introduced a debate. It is a testimony to the power of the e-petitions process that so many people got engaged, signed the petition and are watching us today. My worry is that they will think that all we have had is a...

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I beg to move, That this House has considered e-petition 200888 relating to the sale of animal fur in the UK. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. The e-petition, headed “Ban the sale of animal fur in the UK”, explains: “Fur farming was banned in England and Wales in 2000, followed by Scotland in 2002. However fur products can still be legally...

Fur Trade — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Jun 2018)

Daniel Zeichner: I assure my hon. Friend that that is the direction in which I shall proceed in the next few minutes. To return to the history and as the petition states, 18 years ago Parliament banned fur farming in England and Wales. That ban was extended to Scotland and Northern Ireland in 2002. As the petitioners note, that means that in effect we now outsource the issue. We do not want fur farming on our...
