Fire Safety Remedial Work: Leaseholder Liability (19 Apr 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: On that point, my local authority, Wandsworth Council, has still not published any information around those private blocks that could potentially have flammable cladding.

Fire Safety Remedial Work: Leaseholder Liability (19 Apr 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: I am pleased to have secured this important debate. The issue of liability for fire safety remedial work is of great concern to many Battersea residents, as it is to people in many parts of the country, and for good reason. The horror of the Grenfell fire made it clear, if greater clarity were needed, that there should be no complacency on fire safety. While we await the final publication of...

Fire Safety Remedial Work: Leaseholder Liability (19 Apr 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: I thank for my hon. Friend for making that valid point, which I will certainly be addressing. He is spot on in saying that the Government are the only people who can respond to this issue and deal with the problems that our leaseholders face. So many of these people are first-time buyers, and many are living in shared ownership properties. They do not have tens of thousands of pounds to pay...

Windrush Children (Immigration Status) (16 Apr 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: A number of my constituents have been caught up in the Government’s hostile environment policy, including Paul, who has been here for four decades.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payment Claims Review (26 Mar 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: As well as the gross failings of the personal independence payment, we see another Government failure with the employment and support allowance underpayments where an estimated 70,000 sick and disabled people were incorrectly assessed and denied vital social security support. Will the Minister update the House on the progress that she is making in arranging to identify and to backdate awards...

Will the Minister confirm that claimants who were victims of underpayment will not be subject to reduced ESA eligibility due to lump sum payments being classed as savings?

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: My hon. Friend is making an incredibly valid point about staffing in our hospitals. My local hospital, St George’s, has already experienced a loss of staff because people from the EU are leaving. Our patients have to wait longer to be seen. For example, one lady who had to see a radiographer was seen within a day, but now she has to wait up to six weeks to be seen. Does he agree that...

Grenfell Update (22 Mar 2018)

Refugees (Family Reunion) (No.2) Bill (16 Mar 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: First, I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on introducing this Bill.

That will was demonstrated so well by my predecessor Lord Alf Dubs, who secured the amendment that forced the Government to allow 3,000 unaccompanied child...

Spring Statement (13 Mar 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: The Chancellor has claimed that spending on disabled people has gone up, but we know that next month cuts in social security will hit them the hardest.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (12 Mar 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: The current definition of affordable housing, introduced by the coalition Government, is set at 80% of local market rate, but when house prices are spiralling out of control, as they are in my constituency, this definition of affordable housing is a cruel joke to those on low or median income. Will the Secretary of State commit to replacing this absurd definition so that housing can be...
