Local Audit (Public Access to Documents) Bill: Inspection of accounting records by journalists and citizen journalists (24 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the hon. Member for Aldridge-Brownhills (Wendy Morton) for introducing the Bill. As someone who has brought a private Member’s Bill to the House, I know the hard work that goes into it. Her Bill has got far further than my Bill did, and I wish her every success in taking it further. I do not intend to speak for too long. The Bill makes a relatively small change to existing...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank the hon. Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) for bringing the debate. It might not seem the most glamourous or exciting of topics, but keeping our communities clean and pleasant is a key part of local government’s remit. Ensuring that our streets, parks, playgrounds and open spaces are free from ugly, unhygienic dog mess...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: That’s it—I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention. It is a nasty infection that can lead to dizziness, nausea, asthma and even blindness and seizures. It is not surprising that 47% of people in the UK think that dog fouling is one of the most annoying things they experience in public places. I recently met with a group of cyclists who told me that one of the worst things they...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: I completely agree. There are particularly bad dog owners in some parks quite near where I live. To be quite honest, one would not want to confront them—or the dog—on any issue, because they are quite aggressive people. I did a very unscientific survey among my friends earlier today. I asked if they understood what bin to put dog mess in, and a huge proportion thought it could only be put...

Dog Fouling (14 Mar 2017)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the hon. Lady for the clarification. Local authorities have been campaigning with public sector bodies such as Keep Britain Tidy and third sector organisations such as the Dogs Trust on the issue of dog fouling. Keep Britain Tidy’s 2010 campaign, “There’s no such thing as the dog poo fairy”, led to some communities seeing a 90% decrease in dog mess. The Dogs Trust’s “The...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Commencement (13 Dec 2016)

Teresa Pearce: At this relatively late hour, I do not wish to delay the House for long. Our position on Third Reading reflects much of what has been said about the Bill on Second Reading and in Committee. We believe that there are wasted opportunities to get legislation in place that would see an uplift not only in the number of houses that we build but the quality of those homes and the services and...

Casey Report ( 6 Dec 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I thank the Chair of the Communities and Local Government Committee for asking this important urgent question. For too long as a country we have ignored these complex issues for fear of being seen as racist or as attacking cultural attitudes. Sadly, this approach has left a vacuum that has been exploited by those who exist to promote hatred. It is time that we recognised the problems and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (28 Nov 2016)

Teresa Pearce: Changes to the local government pension scheme that recently came into effect were debated in a statutory instrument Committee last week. During the debate, the Minister indicated that EU directive 41/2003 does not apply to the LGPS, yet a letter I have here from his own Department says that it does. Will he confirm that the directive does apply and that it has been applied?

Written Answers — Department of Health: Home Care Services (23 Nov 2016)

Teresa Pearce: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what steps he is taking to ensure that local authorities do not commission 15-minute homecare visits for personal care in the circumstances set out as not appropriate for such a length of visit in paragraph 4.101 of the Department of Health's Care and Support Statutory Guidance.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Social Services (21 Nov 2016)

Social Care (16 Nov 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I welcome the contributions made by Members on both sides of the House today. They have highlighted the scale of the crisis we face in adult social care. My right hon. Friend the Member for Leigh (Andy Burnham) set out passionately the long-standing need for integration. We had informative and knowledgeable contributions from my hon. Friends the Members for Halton (Derek Twigg), for Tooting...

Social Care (16 Nov 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I am glad my hon. Friend has had the chance to raise that very important point. The crisis is affecting elderly people across the country, as we have heard eloquently expressed by my hon. Friend the Member for Worsley and Eccles South (Barbara Keeley). More than a million elderly people in this country who need social care are getting no support. Half of older people who have difficulty...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union: Neighbourhood Planning Bill (10 Oct 2016)

Teresa Pearce: I would like to put on record my thanks to the Secretary of State for his warm welcome. The Neighbourhood Planning Bill does not appear at first glance to be a controversial one. Indeed, it includes many measures that we support. There are, however, elements of the Bill that could be strengthened or amended, so it was good to hear the Secretary of State say that he might be open to amendments...
