Serious Violence: Battersea (14 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: Does the Minister agree with me and with Baroness Casey who says that this is also about the experience that has been lost? Yes, there is now the recruitment of more officers, but that experience has gone since the Government chose to cut 20,000 officers over the past decade.

Serious Violence: Battersea (14 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: The Minister has rightly spoken about the VRUs and the brilliant work taking place in London. At the heart of all this are our children and young people. We know, as I alluded to in my speech, that many could be exploited by some of these criminal gangs. As I have asked him—I wonder whether he will come on to it—will he back Labour’s plan that would introduce a specific offence around...

Serious Violence: Battersea (14 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: I start by welcoming the Minister to his new post, although it is deeply worrying that his former role of Minister of State for Disabled People, Health and Work has been scrapped. There is no doubt that cuts to police and public services are directly linked to the rise in serious violence in the country. I have called for this debate as meaningful actions are needed to tackle the epidemic of...

Serious Violence: Battersea (14 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: I would like to thank the hon. Member for his intervention, but obviously I do not. I am proud of what the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has been doing to plug the gaps caused by the Government’s failure and their cuts to police services in London. With little or no formal youth services provided by local authorities, it has been left to fantastic organisations in Battersea including Elays,...

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: There are 12 days until Christmas, and hundreds of families in Battersea are worried, not about being able to buy gifts for their children but about whether they can afford food and heat due to the Tory cost of living crisis. This year, over 4,300 emergency food parcels have been provided in Battersea by the Wandsworth food bank, which has told me that it is bracing for the worst winter yet....

Arms Export Licences: Israel — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (12 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: My hon. Friend is making an exceptional speech. Given the humanitarian catastrophe—as we have highlighted, over 18,000 people have died, including thousands of children—does she agree that if the UK is found to be arming Israel and not ceasing to do so, it would be complicit in this war crime?

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill (11 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Dartford (Gareth Johnson). He is absolutely right about management companies needing more transparency and more accountability. Today’s Second Reading of the Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill is long overdue for my Battersea constituents. Many are trapped in the exploitative leasehold system, which denies them control, safety, security and a...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill (11 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: Will the Secretary of State give way?

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill (11 Dec 2023)

Marsha de Cordova: On ground rents, shared owners who have staircased their way up to 100% and become leaseholders obviously have a long lease of 999 years, but face the issue of having their ground rents doubled every, say, 20 years. Clearly, that is an unfairness in the system, so will the Secretary of State’s consultation address that point?
