Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (17 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: In this glorious summer weather, it is easy to forget that this winter our constituents who still use heating oil saw very sharp price rises. Does the Minister therefore agree that not only should our constituents take advantage of this weather to fill up their tanks for what is likely to be a lower price, but we should encourage initiatives like community buying which can also help villages...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: The key concern for me is that we seem to be separating EU trade and non-EU trade, but is it not the case that so much of our non-EU exports are from foreign-owned businesses that invest in this country for export precisely because of the attraction of the single market and so on?

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: I welcome my right hon. Friend to his position. Given the brief period he has been in post, he is giving a performance of very high calibre. On free movement, while I accept that many colleagues share the noble position that we should not have a discriminatory system, does my right hon. Friend accept that there is a big implication for unskilled migration, because if we allow it in future, we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Waste Criminals (12 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: What steps he is taking to tackle waste criminals.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Waste Criminals (12 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: One area about which I get considerable correspondence from my constituents is that of fly-tipping. Does the Secretary of State agree that it is not only morally reprehensible, but a threat to the environment and our wildlife? Will he also outline what the Government are doing to tackle fly-tipping, particularly in the countryside?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: rose—

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: Oh, thank you, Mr Speaker.

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: The largest employer in my constituency is Philips AVENT, the baby care company, which employs 1,500 people. At the weekend, its chief executive made it clear that in the event of a hard Brexit that plant could close, which would be a massive shock to my local economy. May I say to my right hon. Friend that, although there is a lot of excitement about certain jobs being lost in this place, I...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: The Minister is making a fantastic speech. I am glad he has reached that point about appeals, because it seems to me very welcome that once someone has the five-year land supply and it has been signed off, they then have 12 months of security. At the moment, as soon as a council says, “We’ve got the five-year land supply,” there can be an immediate appeal by a developer and...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: On a point of order, Sir Christopher. In the great excitement of commencing my speech, I failed to draw the House’s attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests.

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: I beg to move, That this House has considered the five-year land supply. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher, and to have been selected to introduce this important debate. I welcome my hon. Friend the Minister. It is great to see so many colleagues here—their presence underlines the importance of this issue. The phrase “five-year land supply”...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: I know that my hon. Friend was influential in neighbourhood plans. I was going to make that point, which is certainly true, so that was not so much a correction as a preview. I always say to my communities, “If you’re going to do a neighbourhood plan, allocate sites, because it will still be relevant if there is only a three-year land supply.” That incredibly important...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend. That chimes with the situation in my area and many others, as I have heard from colleagues. I will come back to that point. To understand why the system leads to speculative development, it is important to understand that when I say local policy becomes less important in the absence of a five-year land supply, I basically mean that it becomes far easier...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: I know that my hon. Friend is passionate about that issue and has come up with some radical suggestions in that regard. The experience in Babergh is common around the country, and it underlines my main point. It sounds good in principle to say to councils, “Nimby councils will be held to account—you must deliver the homes,” but they are doing the right thing. They are...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: That is an excellent point. The key word, which we will hear a lot in the coming days, is “control.” We call it speculative development because the community loses control. Let us be honest: if an area has a five-year land supply, there will still be controversial planning applications, but those will be determined by the local authority. People will be unhappy about homes being...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

James Cartlidge: That is a perfectly fair point. Many councils will have been seen as recalcitrant in the past. My point is about build-out rates. The councils I am talking about are delivering permissions; the issue is the build-out rate. No one disputes that. The Government themselves appointed my right hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) to review the delivery of permissions, and I...
