Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I want to touch on two issues to do with fees and enforcement. I want to put on record my thanks to the Lewes citizens advice bureau, which did extensive research for my Adjournment debate in May 2016. While the explanatory notes to the Bill say that letting agents’ fees are on average £200 to £300, in my constituency —probably because it is in the south-east—they...

Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I will not give way, simply because of the time constraints on us. If tenants are found to be in breach of those requirements, they will be liable to penalties and to prosecution, so I am more reassured than I was at the start of the debate. I welcome the fact that the Minister has listening ears, because he has really tried to listen to all Members on this matter. On the enforcement issue, I...

Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Maria Caulfield: To go back to amendment 3, is the hon. Lady not reassured by schedule 1? It states that “if the amount of the payment exceeds the loss suffered by the landlord as a result of the default, the amount of the excess is a prohibited payment.” Does that not reassure her that the Bill will protect tenants from those who want to charge exorbitant default fees, as evidence will have to be...

Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Maria Caulfield: One issue with current legislation on the requirement to publish letting agents’ fees has been the lack of enforcement. What confidence can the Minister give the House that enforcement will actually happen under this very welcome new legislation?

Northern Ireland: Recent Violence (18 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I join my right hon. Friend in expressing deep admiration for the PSNI. Given that there is no functioning Assembly in Northern Ireland, will she identify what resources and extra support are going in to help support the PSNI and community groups, so that they can deal with any escalation in violence?

Govia Thameslink Franchise (18 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: My constituency is a Southern-only constituency, and I have seven stations. Although they are not high-volume stations like nearby Haywards Heath or Brighton, they provide people’s only public transport for getting to work and school, and visiting our coastal tourist regions. Although the PPM figures are improving, Southern passengers are still experiencing short formation, complete...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation (16 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I rise to present a petition on behalf of residents in the Lewes constituency. The petition states: The petition of residents of Lewes, Declare that the "Home Education - Call for Evidence and revised DfE guidance" has been written following significant consultation with local authorities and no consultation whatsoever with the home education community; further that the consultation is...

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: WeQ will hear evidence this afternoon that there should be stronger penalties for those who take images of under-18s. On the Women and Equalities Committee, we heard evidence during an inquiry about how prevalent this is for younger people, even at school age. What is your view on the impact that the Bill should have in protecting people under 18 who are caught up in this?

Public Bill Committee: Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill: Examination of Witness (10 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: Q For young people who may not understand the implications of what they do at a very young age, does there need to be some leeway, rather than criminalising people who may make a genuine mistake when they are younger and who, when they were a little older, would never consider doing something such as upskirting? Does the Bill protect those who make a genuine mistake?

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: With the leave of the House, I would like to put on record my thanks to everyone as we reach this stage of the Bill. I thank particularly the Clerks in the Public Bill Office, the team at the Ministry of Justice and my right hon. Friend the Member for Tatton (Ms McVey), who instigated the Bill. I also thank the Minister for his support throughout the Bill’s progress and all hon....

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I am hearing from prison officers that one of the most ingenious ways of smuggling drugs into prisons at the moment is to soak the pages of books and letters in drugs. The prisoners lick the drugs off later when they are back in their cells.

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: The offer was made to the Scottish Government to apply the Bill to Scotland. They have not taken it up, but the hope is that they may well do so in future.

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time. It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed), who has done great work on his private Member’s Bill. I am grateful to Members from across the House for giving clear cross-party support to this Bill, which is small but nevertheless important. There are a number of people I would like to thank. I...

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: The hon. Lady is quite right, and I will go on to explain how mobile phones are used to continue crime in our prison service. To reiterate, last year 23,656 mobile phones were found in our prisons, which is nearly 65 a day. In my constituency, 184 mobile phones and 80 SIM cards were found at HMP Lewes last year, and having visited the prison regularly and met prison officers and the governor,...

Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: My hon. Friend is quite right: mobile phones were trying to fight the Bill on Second Reading. The changes in the Bill are designed directly to enlist the specialist knowledge, support and expertise of mobile phone operators to combat the use of illegal mobiles in our prisons, young offenders institutions, secure training centres and secure colleges. Importantly, and as I made clear at earlier...

Govia Thameslink/Rail Electrification (3 Jul 2018)

Maria Caulfield: I get no sense of urgency from the Minister about the devastating impact this is having on my constituents. The timetable changes will see a reduction in services for passengers in Plumpton, Lewes, Seaford, Berwick, Polegate and Wivelsfield, and since the disaster of the timetable roll-out, we are constantly seeing short-formed trains—which are severely overcrowded, station-skipping in...
