Housing and Social Security (22 Jun 2017)

Andrew Slaughter: The Leader of the Opposition, my right hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), rightly pointed out yesterday that this Queen’s Speech would be a thin, anaemic document had it been for one parliamentary year, but that as a two-year programme it is a positive embarrassment. Fortunately, however, we are unlikely to have to wait two years before the electorate is able to...

Delegated Legislation: New Clause 1 — TfL assets for development (disclosure) (16 Mar 2015)

Andrew Slaughter: I fully support new clause 2 and, indeed, all the amendments tabled in my hon. Friend’s name and that of my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn). I fear that this is my last intervention. Madam Deputy Speaker, I hope that you will think it no discourtesy to the House if I say that an unbreakable constituency commitment means that I am unable to participate further in...

Israel and the Peace Process — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (27 Mar 2012)

Andrew Slaughter: ...people. When considering this issue, the judgment of some hon. Members seems to lapse in a way that it would not in relation to other issues. My hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) has given the example of Operation Cast Lead, in which 1,500 people, the majority of them civilians—many of them women and children—were massacred by bombardment from sea, land and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 2 — Financial assistance for major works (14 Mar 2012)

Andrew Slaughter: ...cost four or five times more than the highest estimated cost for the tunnel. However, we must use SUDS, and indeed other measures I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) for his intervention, because he brings me back to the point that I was making. I was pleased to receive an invitation from the right hon. Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark to...

Education and Training (Young People with Autism): New Clause 26 — Offence of squatting in a residential building (1 Nov 2011)

Andrew Slaughter: ..., including those on part 2, and that Government Whips will not employ their tawdry tactics again. Some 40% of homeless people have squatted, as my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) said, and 6% of homeless people are squatting at any one time. There is a significant prevalence of mental health problems, learning difficulties and substance addiction in those who...

Legal Aid (11 May 2011)

Andrew Slaughter: ...so far, but in a way that takes account of all the views that have been expressed. That, perhaps, is the key point coming out of this debate. My hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) talked about housing—a subject very dear to my own heart as well—and the effect on our constituents in London, and the hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake) talked...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — [25th Allotted Day] — Social Housing in London (5 May 2011)

Andrew Slaughter: ...speeches from Conservative Members—that is probably why there were only three of them. I would also like again to thank the sponsor of the debate, my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), who really does know his onions on this issue. He has driven many debates on the issue over the six years that I have been in this House, and we are all grateful that he keeps it...

Housing (London) (15 Feb 2011)

Andrew Slaughter: ...of Government policy; but what is happening in housing is as disastrous in its own way as it is in those other areas. I am therefore grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) for securing this morning's debate, as it gives us an opportunity to talk at greater length than usual in Westminster Hall about the Government's housing policy and its effect on...

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Legal aid (14 Dec 2010)

Andrew Slaughter: ...been a privilege to listen to so many well-informed speakers from both sides. Although it invidious to pick out people, I will do so by saying that my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn) and the hon. Member for South Swindon (Mr Buckland) showed their decades of experience in dealing with such matters. I hope that the Minister will listen to them and to other...

[Mr Mike Hancock in the Chair] (29 Jun 2010)

Andrew Slaughter: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Islington North (Jeremy Corbyn), who has an outstanding record on this issue. As he says, "Here we go again." The fact that 11 Labour Back Benchers are present shows the strength of feeling and the importance of this issue. The hon. Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Mr Field) also regularly attends debates on this subject, although I...

Private Tenants and Leaseholders (London) (3 Mar 2010)

Andrew Slaughter: I am pleased that my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) has secured this debate today I agree with him that it is related to yesterday's debate on affordability. Today, we are discussing the other end of affordability. Will the Minister consider seriously the problems facing council leaseholders who, because of the poor state of repair of their properties, and...

[Mrs. Joan Humble in the Chair] — Housing (London) (2 Mar 2010)

Andrew Slaughter: ...In saying that it is the key issue for housing in London, I do not mean to suggest that there are not other serious matters that need to be debated. My hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn), for example, has a debate on the private rented sector in this Chamber later in the week. Moreover, there are issues related to owner-occupation. In particular, there are the...

[Mr. Mike Weir in the Chair] — Social Housing (Central London) (14 Jan 2009)

Andrew Slaughter: ..., which I believe is Government policy. That applies not only to local authorities, but to housing associations, and on that point I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn). Again, it is partly the fault of the Conservatives that public land sites that previously would have been transferred to housing associations at nil value are now being auctioned to...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Housing (Greater London) (11 Nov 2008)

Andrew Slaughter: As my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) and other speakers have said, there is a housing crisis in London—a crisis of temporary accommodation, of overcrowding and, above all, of affordability, which has not yet been resolved by the fall in house prices. An organisation with which many London Members will be familiar, London Citizens, conducted research on the...

Housing (London) (23 Apr 2008)

Andrew Slaughter: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) for leaving me a little time, and particularly to my hon. Friend the Member for Regent's Park and Kensington, North (Ms Buck) for yet another housing debate. She must occasionally feel that she is banging her head against a brick wall, but nevertheless she keeps going and keeps raising the issues. Of course not...

[Sir Nicholas Winterton in the Chair] — Legal Aid (11 Jan 2007)

Andrew Slaughter: ...is practically the only provider. It is opening outreach offices to try to serve the community there. We suffer from the exact problem mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn)—high costs, but extraordinarily great and complex needs. This only an intervention, and I think that other hon. Members will indicate what they are—

Orders of the Day: Greater London Authority Bill (12 Dec 2006)

Andrew Slaughter: ...is needed, as the Minister acknowledged when she opened the debate, to show when we are dealing with strategic powers. Where I do not agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) is that it would be inappropriate to give the Mayor additional powers, as I shall explain. Apart from guidelines being important in themselves, they are important because they would...

[Mrs. Janet Dean in the Chair] — Social Housing (10 May 2006)

Andrew Slaughter: ...the end of the day the human misery I see every day and every week in my constituency relates to the lack of supply of affordable rented housing, as my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) said. [Interruption.] I am being prompted to sit down, and I shall do so shortly. I shall conclude with something slightly more hopeful—and something less hopeful; let us not be...
