Housing, Communities and Local Government: Homes for Social Rent (18 Jun 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Mr Speaker, I thank you and Members of all parties who supported the Grenfell community by attending memorial services and the silent walk, by speaking in the House and by wearing the green heart. Will the Secretary of State politely insist that all Members who have shown support by wearing the green heart support my request for a Backbench Business debate, so that we can discuss all these...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: I will leave the discussion of cladding and the Hackitt report to others, and I will instead focus on the dire state of rehousing our Grenfell-affected households—it is shameful. Let me remind the House that I am talking about my community: some of my friends, some who passed away, and some who lost close family. As it is Mental Health Awareness Week, let me announce that I have also...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: I absolutely concur; they have been failed. Secondly, the more pernicious sections of the media have berated families for not accepting so-called interim housing, implying that they love living in the luxury of hotels. I have visited those hotels. A Premier Inn is not a luxury. Some have called it a prison. Many have refused the so-called interim housing because they know what it means. A...

Grenfell Tower (16 May 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Yes. I thank my hon. Friend. The council has refused to pay for those adaptations because the property is owned by a housing association, and the family are so desperate to move that they have offered to fund the adaptations themselves from their compensation payment. Worst of all to date is a self-sufficient family, whom I know very well, who care for their older disabled family member and...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 May 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: First, I thank the Petitions Committee for making this debate possible. As the Committee will know, after the initial disappointing response from No. 10 to the request for a debate, I wrote to the Chair saying that I felt that response was inadequate. I am pleased that the Committee agreed and asked No. 10 to review its response. After months of extra work from survivors and the local...

Grenfell Update (22 Mar 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: I will be reading the taskforce report in great detail. I am confused by the figures cited by the Secretary of State, because we have completely different ones. In November we were told that there were 209 displaced households, but I had the true figure from the council’s housing department, which was 376. Those figures then go through the mediacom department, where they are put on hot...

Grenfell Update (22 Mar 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I believe that the truth is being censored and people are demanding to know why. Trust in the council is being eroded. Will the Secretary of State explain why there is a mismatch in the figures? A lot of residents are asking for commissioners to be sent in to deal with rehousing specifically. Will the Secretary of State stand by, because finger-wagging is not...

Building Safety (15 Mar 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: The Secretary of State’s comments on rehousing survivors do not equate with my experience: a great deal more than 25 households are still waiting for any kind of suitable offer. On the fire doors, I received a message just this morning from an elderly architect friend who worked as part of the team on the Grenfell Tower and estate. In his experience, the architects at the time specified...

Fire Safety and Cladding — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Will the Minister give way?

Fire Safety and Cladding — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: On that point, will the Minister give way?

Fire Safety and Cladding — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Will the Minister give way?

Fire Safety and Cladding — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (6 Mar 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Decades of inaction led to the fire at Grenfell Tower and the loss of, now, 72 lives. All the fine words and sympathy in the world will not save lives. We need regulation now and a commitment of Government finance. What are we waiting for?

Social Housing and Regeneration: Earl’s Court and West Kensington (20 Feb 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Like many Kensingtonians, I have a long history with Earl’s Court exhibition centre. As a child, I visited the Bertram Mills circus, when they had performing animals; it was the “olden days”. I also attended the Royal Tournament, countless Ideal Home exhibitions, and—of course—some of those amazing concerts. However, the site is not just part of my story. It was,...

Health and Social Care: Grenfell Tower: Mental Health (6 Feb 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: What steps he is taking to support the mental health needs of survivors and the wider community affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

Health and Social Care: Grenfell Tower: Mental Health (6 Feb 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: We have heard the Minister’s words and a litany of numbers. I have two further questions. First, is she considering long-term funding for mental health services around Grenfell, which will be needed, and need to be planned for, for possibly up to five years? Secondly, is she addressing the severe shortage of acute beds for those suffering mental health crises, which was mentioned...

NHS Winter Crisis: Grenfell Tower (5 Feb 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: Why is the Minister refusing to take action to make the residents in social housing tower blocks safe by backing Labour’s pledge to set aside funding to retrofit sprinkler systems, as fire chiefs have asked the Government to do? People are afraid.

Exiting the European Union: Non-UK EU Nationals (1 Feb 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: What steps he is taking to maintain the rights of non-UK EU nationals resident in the UK after the UK leaves the EU.

Exiting the European Union: Non-UK EU Nationals (1 Feb 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: The 2011 census stated that 20% of Kensington and Chelsea’s population were EU nationals. In Kensington, we have three schools for Spanish and for French students. Families are living in fear of the uncertainty. With the discussions on EU citizens’ rights opening next week, will the Minister reassure my existing EU constituents that they will retain all their rights once we leave...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (29 Jan 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: In the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire, our bereaved community needs its local education services more than ever. I was pleased to see that the proposed merger between Kensington and Chelsea College and Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College has been halted, and that an overdue consultation on the future of Wornington college is to be opened. Will the Secretary of State act to...

Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support: Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Emma Dent Coad: From behind the crisp white façades of Kensington, and from neighbouring Chelsea, come tales of the most unimaginable squalor. Some Members may know that my move into active local politics 12 years ago was propelled by a five-year legal battle with my housing association after a plaster ceiling collapsed—following many, many complaints—and missed my young daughter’s...
