Siobhain McDonagh: Journalists have revealed that the family of Asif Aziz, a landlord to my constituents in Britannia Point, Colliers Wood, manages a large property portfolio registered under dozens of companies on the Isle of Man.

Sri Lankan Tamils and Human Rights — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] ( 5 Dec 2023)

Siobhain McDonagh: I am sure that the Minister genuinely believes the speech that he is making, but the Foreign Office has for the last 13 years been beseeching the Sri Lankan Government for an independent truth and reconciliation process. To date, that has not happened. At what point will the Minister try something else?

Sri Lankan Tamils and Human Rights — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] ( 5 Dec 2023)

Siobhain McDonagh: I congratulate the hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day) on securing this debate. In Easter 2009, I spent my time out on Parliament Square watching London’s Tamil community beside itself with grief as it received news of relatives, friends, communities and hospitals being bombed. We heard of people lying on the beach, unable to be removed by family or community members...

Public Bill Committee: Renters (Reform) Bill: Schedule 1 - Changes to grounds for possession (21 Nov 2023)

Siobhain McDonagh: Does my hon. Friend agree that it causes another problem for those families, because hard-pressed councils might find them intentionally homeless? Generally, if someone is evicted for rent arrears, they are found intentionally homeless. Although reference has to be made to particular circumstances, I imagine that a court order with that result would lead to no landlord taking them on and to...

Public Bill Committee: Renters (Reform) Bill: Schedule 1 - Changes to grounds for possession (21 Nov 2023)

Siobhain McDonagh: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the groups of people for whom it is most difficult to get housing benefit or universal credit correct is self-employed minicab drivers, because of the difficulties in assessing the costs involved in being self-employed? They regularly get a decision on their benefit claim only to have it change and have money taken back, while they remain on exactly the...

Public Bill Committee: Renters (Reform) Bill: Clause 1 - Assured tenancies to be periodic with rent period not exceeding a month (21 Nov 2023)

Siobhain McDonagh: I ask the Minister to consider the law of unintended consequences. If the Government delay implementation of the clauses that end section 21 evictions, they could find that landlords who are worried about their ability to evict tenants or have choices will rush for a clause 21 eviction, because they know that at some point section 21 evictions will be ended. The longer it takes the courts to...

It is a very new...

Public Bill Committee: Renters (Reform) Bill: Clause 1 - Assured tenancies to be periodic with rent period not exceeding a month (21 Nov 2023)

Siobhain McDonagh: The guidance code on dealing with homeless families suggests that priority for local temporary accommodation should be given to children in their exam years. That is a great aspiration, but it is not being realised on the ground because local authorities cannot find accommodation, particularly for larger families.

Public Bill Committee: Renters (Reform) Bill: Clause 1 - Assured tenancies to be periodic with rent period not exceeding a month (21 Nov 2023)

Siobhain McDonagh: Does my hon.
