Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: Absolutely. As a former student of Holy Cross College in Bury, I have met many of my hon. Friend’s constituents over the years. I know how important it is to them that they hand on the baton to the next generation, and that we do not allow this to be the moment when understanding and comprehension of what happened in that darkest moment of history is lost. They can then hand over that...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: As ever, my right hon. Friend speaks incredibly powerfully. I do not doubt the sincerity of those who have taken part in the debate on the location, but that debate has run for long enough. Labour Members share the Government’s view that it is now time to move forwards with a memorial that is incredibly important to every single person in our country, but holds particular significance for...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I thank the hon. Member for that intervention. As I said, I do not doubt the sincerity of those who have raised concerns about the location, including the Father of the House. It is right and legitimate that we should have a debate about that, and it is right, fair and proper that they should make their concerns known. Labour Members believe that this is the right location and that it is...

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I am more than happy to acknowledge that and to restate the commitment that we on the Labour Benches do not doubt the sincerity of those engaging in this debate. We acknowledge the strength of feeling and the different views that exist within the Jewish community and across the country, as well as in this place and on the Government Benches in particular. The hybrid process provides an...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: Thank you very much, Madam Deputy Speaker, for intervening to make sure that some basic manners and courtesies are respected. May I ask the Minister to stop this ridiculous politicking? I have just set out for him a series of concerning points that have been raised by a respected national newspaper, with evidence behind them, many of which are not disputed by those involved in the...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: We are concerned about the fact that no value for money is being achieved in this project, because of allegations raised in the report in the Financial Times, which set out that hundreds of millions of pounds have been put behind a project that Ministers appear to have handed over and then walked away, in a company 90% of which has been transferred into private ownership, where two investors...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, that he will be graciously pleased to give directions that the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities provide all papers, advice and correspondence involving Ministers, senior officials and special advisers, including submissions and electronic communications, relating to the decision by the Secretary of...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: The problem, as the right hon. Member well knows, is that Members of this House and, more importantly, people on Teesside simply do not know the answer to that question. Serious allegations have been raised not just by Members on the Opposition Benches, but by respected national journalists who have conducted meticulous investigations, and the point of holding an independent inquiry is that...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: If the hon. Member wants to say otherwise, she is very welcome to do so now.

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: Honestly. It is about time that hon. Members stopped chirping and started paying attention. The Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has accepted that an investigation is needed to give investors confidence. I saw him walking through the Chamber a moment ago, Madam Deputy Speaker—he could not get away quick enough. This is why we want to see an investigation launched...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: My hon. Friend is absolutely right and has been a huge champion of this for communities across the country. Most importantly, our regions will not prosper and will not grow unless we can have confidence that decisions are being taken in the right way and in the public interest, and the people of that region need to know that they will benefit from those decisions. That is the point of devolution.

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I will take absolutely no lessons from a representative of a political party that stood aside and watched as the Tees works collapsed in 2015. Labour is therefore asking the Government to provide all papers, advice and correspondence, including Ministers, senior officials and special advisers, relating to the decision by the Secretary of State and the Prime Minister to commission a review...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: There is a wider point here, which is that devolution matters but it matters for a reason. It matters because decisions taken closer to people, driven by the people of the place they call home and for the benefit of those people, have the ability to transform lives. We need and deserve proper robust scrutiny arrangements and accountability in every part of the country, not just some, in order...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: The hon. Gentleman might want to take that up with his colleague, the Mayor in question, who has referred himself and asked for a National Audit Office investigation. I do not know why Members on the Government Benches think his judgment is so poor that he should not have done that, but we believe he is absolutely right to have done that and we stand firmly behind him in asking for a proper...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: Can I just correct the right hon. Member? As he well knows, this is not an independent or full investigation. Perhaps he also has not had the courtesy of having been given the time by the Secretary of State to look at the full terms of reference, but it genuinely beggars belief to try to claim that this is somehow politically motivated. If Conservative Members believe that the call for a NAO...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I thank my hon. Friend for making that point, which absolutely concurs with my experience of the NAO. Members on both sides of the House will have had experience of having written to the NAO to raise concerns, and all of us are treated with decency and impartiality by the NAO when it seeks to respond. Unbelievably, the situation gets even more complicated. Questions were raised at that point...

Teesworks: Accountability and Scrutiny ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: I studiously avoided trying to prejudice any terms of the inquiry in advance of their announcement, but I was given seven minutes for a cursory glance at the terms of reference. If the Minister wants to tell people on Teesside that they deserve two minutes to understand the terms of reference, he is very welcome. That is arrogant and shows utter contempt for people in this country. Having...

Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Topical Questions ( 5 Jun 2023)

Lisa Nandy: It is nice to see an outbreak of consensus in the House; the Secretary of State is a neo-socialist, and the Bert and Ernie of British politics have been reunited once more. Will he tell us, though, why he did not decide to allow the National Audit Office to investigate the serious allegations about misuse of public money and assets on Teesside?
