Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Flooding (7 Dec 2015)

Seema Kennedy: I pay tribute to my local Environment Agency team in Lancashire and Cumbria, who worked all weekend keeping me up to date. My residents in Banks and Rufford are very concerned that in less than two years the flooding pumps at Alt Crossens are going to move away from the Environment Agency to another, as yet unnamed, body. Most of this water gives on to farmland. What is the Department doing...

Backbench Business - Middle Eastbackbench Business (30 Nov 2015)

Seema Kennedy: I begin by paying tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Bracknell (Dr Lee) for securing this important debate, and by thanking the Backbench Business Committee for allowing it to take place. We meet a time when Britain’s role in the middle east is on the front pages for the reason of war, but the same could be said of almost any day in the last 100 years. If we want to have an effective...

Backbench Business - Middle Eastbackbench Business (30 Nov 2015)

Seema Kennedy: I do not think anyone would say that the Supreme Leader was a moderniser. The President is, but the problem is that, under the constitution of Iran, there are different pools of influence and they are pulling at each other all the time. The role for Britain is to nurture these nations and to encourage them to build competitive economies in which pluralism can thrive and in which Islamism will...

Backbench Business - Middle Eastbackbench Business (30 Nov 2015)

Seema Kennedy: Does my hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Security Situation (25 Nov 2015)

Isil: National Security and Defence (23 Nov 2015)

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Clause 1 - Purpose of this chapter (19 Nov 2015)

Seema Kennedy: Will the hon. Lady accept that 86% of Britons aspire to home ownership, so our manifesto commitment is important? Also, on what basis should a Government legislate other than what was in their manifesto?

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Clause 1 - Purpose of this chapter (19 Nov 2015)

Seema Kennedy: The hon. Lady has made much reference to the building of social housing, and how she would like that to be incorporated into the clause. Will she explain why fewer council houses were built between 1997 and 2010 than between 2010 and 2015?

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Examination of Witnesses (17 Nov 2015)

Seema Kennedy: Dr Ellis, can I quickly go back to your written evidence? Is all your analysis through the prism of the 1947 Act, the nationalisation of development rights and all those things? Is that the gold standard by which you work?

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Examination of Witnesses (17 Nov 2015)

Seema Kennedy: Would you accept, though, that the world has moved on? The nationalisation of planning has not really worked now. Up until 2010 the number of houses it was delivering, in the light of the 1990 Act, was too low and there needed to be radical change.
