Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Examination of Witness (31 Jan 2017)

Jim McMahon: Q But do you accept that it is a significant part of local authority pressure? Adult social care and safeguarding make up the lion’s share of most local authorities’ spend. This is a package, of course. Are you concerned that, based on the Department for Communities and Local Government forecast, council tax will increase by 25% over the life of the Parliament? What would you say to the...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Pre-proceedings work with families (12 Jan 2017)

Kate Green: I rise to add briefly to my hon. Friend’s remarks. The Minister will be aware of the rise in the number of care proceedings initiated—my hon. Friend alluded to that—and the disparity in outcomes for different ethnic groups. There are much higher instances of children from certain ethnic backgrounds being in care compared with the population as a whole. I particularly draw the...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Arrangements for remaining in a residential children’s home after reaching adulthood (10 Jan 2017)

Edward Timpson: The hon. Lady will be pleased to know that we have been working very closely with the Every Child Leaving Care Matters team, so that it is able to positively contribute to the work and look at the different models that we need to test out through the piloting of Staying Close. In that way, the needs of each individual young person can be met by the range of models available. Some of the...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Power to test different ways of working (10 Jan 2017)

Kate Green: I had not planned to speak at this point, but a number of points that have come up in the past hour have raised further questions in my mind, and I hope that the Minister will allow me to explore a few of them a little more. It is important to say to all Members that no Labour Member is against innovation or the notion that we should take seriously a lot of the ideas and suggestions of local...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Placing children in secure accommodation elsewhere in Great Britain (10 Jan 2017)

Emma Lewell-Buck: It is a pleasure to be back in Committee, Mrs Main. I, too, wish everyone a happy new year. I rise to speak to new clause 27, which is in my name. It was with a mix of anger and sadness that I tabled the new clause, which would give Ministers two years to sort out a situation that has arisen on their watch: the intolerable lack of secure places for our country’s most vulnerable children....

Public Bill Committee: Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Functions of the Panel (15 Dec 2016)

Edward Timpson: I am grateful to the hon. Member for South Shields for her amendments, which raise important, difficult and sensitive issues. She rightly made some insightful, wide-ranging points. I suspect that my response will not necessarily do justice to them all, but I will do my best. One thing that the hon. Lady and I have in common is that we both have experience of dealing with these types of cases...

Public Bill Committee: Children and Social Work Bill [Lords]: Local offer for care leavers (13 Dec 2016)

Edward Timpson: I understand the hon. Gentleman’s point. Any roll-out as wide and as significant as universal credit is going to have various knock-on effects, depending on what other initiatives fall off the back of those changes. I will take that away and talk to my colleagues in the Department for Work and Pensions to see whether that has been factored in as part of the roll-out through to 2018. I want...

Public Bill Committee: Homelessness Reduction Bill: Local connection of a care leaver (7 Dec 2016)

David Burrowes: I very much support the clause and its focus on care leavers. I note that it is not an extension of the local connection that was considered in the draft Bill, which the Communities and Local Government Committee scrutinised and recommended should not be extended more widely—and that was accepted—as it could have caused some issues and was perhaps in conflict with existing guidance. I...

Public Bill Committee: Homelessness Reduction Bill: Duty to provide advisory services (30 Nov 2016)

Bob Blackman: I will respond briefly to the debate. I thank all Members for their contributions and for serving on the Committee. Those threatened with homelessness or those tragically becoming homeless need to get the help and advice they need as early as possible: that issue is clearly at the heart of the Bill. I turn to some of the points that have been made; if any individuals want further...

Public Bill Committee: Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill: Voluntary schemes (15 Nov 2016)

Julie Cooper: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I will begin by outlining our overall priority for the Bill and, in particular, this clause. Our priority is to ensure that the Bill effectively controls the cost of medicines and medical supplies to the national health service while ensuring the best possible patient access to existing products and to new and innovative...

Public Bill Committee: Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (8 Nov 2016)

Dr Ridge: I am absolutely delighted to do so. Just to emphasise some of the increases, I have brought with me the “Prescribing Costs in Hospitals and the Community” report from the Health and Social Care Information Centre, which is now part of NHS Digital. That organisation routinely publishes information on a range of things, including prescribing and drug expenditure. In the 2014-15...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: E-book lending (1 Nov 2016)

Matthew Hancock: I wholeheartedly support the hon. Member for Cardiff West in his analysis of the increasing range of digital services at libraries across the country and the importance of those digital services to the communities they serve. I also agree with what he said about the increasing range of e-books and the importance of e-book lending. I am touched by his care for our delivering on the...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Disclosure of information to reduce debt owed to the public sector (27 Oct 2016)

Louise Haigh: That is exactly the kind of attitude that underpins these elements of the Bill: “Trust us. We’ll sort it out. Give us your data. No problem. We’re going to share them freely and fairly.” The Government may well do. The problem is that the public do not have that trust in them. As I said on Tuesday, this is not a party political point. The previous Labour Government were not up to...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Disclosure of information to improve public service delivery (25 Oct 2016)

Louise Haigh: I am grateful for that intervention. I am very aware of the Concentrix case and will come on to it shortly. On the inclusion of non-public sector authorities and the Government’s intention to strictly define the circumstances and purposes under which data sharing with such organisations will be allowed, their statement of intent was clear. However, only one paragraph in the 101-page draft...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Restrictions on power to impose planning conditions (25 Oct 2016)

Gavin Barwell: I have tried to answer that question already. Some of those things do not require legislation. There are problems in our house building system that require policy changes, and others that require legislative changes. We want to pursue a range of solutions encompassing both those options. I want to pick up on three specific examples that we were given of pre-commencement conditions, one of...

Public Bill Committee: Neighbourhood Planning Bill: Further provision about statement of community involvement (25 Oct 2016)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: I beg to move amendment 12, in clause 6, page 5, line 27, at end insert “in cases where the local authorities’ statement of community involvement was regarded as inadequate.” This amendment allows the Secretary of State only to require planning authorities to review their statement of community involvement if they have failed to produce one. It is a pleasure to serve under your...

Public Bill Committee: Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (18 Oct 2016)

Louise Haigh: New clause 10 would require the Secretary of State to ensure that there is a completely open procurement process, and an alternative dispute resolution role to arbitrate in instances of disagreement over the designation. We welcome the Minister’s clarification last Wednesday about the statement of intent in relation to the USO. However, we want to mention—I am sure it will not be the...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education and Research Bill: United Kingdom Research and Innovation (18 Oct 2016)

Jo Johnson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving me the opportunity to explain further how the OFS and UKRI will work together on a range of issues relating to their respective remits. I appreciate the considered tone of his comments and observations. We understand that these matters are important and we have taken considerable care to try to address them when crafting the reforms and the Bill. I am...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Alcoholic liquor duties: rates (7 Jul 2016)

Damian Hinds: Clause 143 sets out changes to alcohol duty rates from 21 March this year. It was announced in the Budget that the duty on beer, spirits and most ciders would be frozen this year and that the duty on most wines and higher-strength sparkling cider would rise with inflation. With those changes, we continue to support the pub industry, which plays such an important part in British cultural...

Public Bill Committee: Investigatory Powers Bill: Relevant public authorities and designated senior officers (19 Apr 2016)

Keir Starmer: I beg to move amendment 135, in clause 61, page 49, line 32, leave out subsections (1) and (2) and insert— “(1) For the purposes of this Part, a relevant public authority is— (a) a police force maintained under section 2 of the Police Act 1996, (b) the Metropolitan police force, (c) the City of London police force, (d) the Police Service of Scotland, (e) the Police Service of...
