Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Assessment of mental health impact for leaseholders in dwellings with building safety risks (26 Oct 2021)

Ruth Cadbury: I thank the Minister for his response to new clause 11. I am not sure whether he truly understands the impact of the building safety crisis on people, or he does but has no intention of dealing with it. I fear sometimes that it is the former. Only yesterday, Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities Ministers were advocating shared ownership—a subset of leaseholders. They are...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 25 - Joint campaigning by registered parties and third parties (26 Oct 2021)

Fleur Anderson: We oppose part 4 in its entirety. The Minister makes it sound very easy. Parties campaign together and write a joint plan. If they have been a part of it, they declare all the expenses. In practice, that involves a huge amount of red tape and burden, and it is absolutely disproportionate to the effect that the Government are trying to achieve with the Bill—transparency, integrity and...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 24 - Recognised third parties: changes to existing limits etc (26 Oct 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Yes, but the fact is they are not very common. Every single one of us in this room is in the same situation. I was elected in 2017. I did not know that a snap election was going to be called. I am afraid that what Opposition Members are asking for is the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, which is not within the scope of what we are discussing. Debates on the clause are not the place to discuss...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 16 - Provision of evidence in support of protection or human rights claim (26 Oct 2021)

Neil Coyle: On a day like this, I really do regret giving up coffee. I remind Members of my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests and of my support for the Refugee, Asylum and Migration Policy project. I had not planned to speak but I was very disappointed with the first set of answers I received. The only reason our debating time is limited is that the Government set an artificial...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Examination of Witnesses (26 Oct 2021)

Dr Pazos-Vidal: Yes, sorry. I withdrew from the mic. The general provisions are more state aid-like than just regional aid guidance received in the assisted areas, as my colleagued referred to previously. On the issue of assisted areas, it is important to highlight that assisted areas of regional aid guidance, as they used to be known, were done in complement to the so-called structural...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 23 - Third parties capable of giving notification for purposes of Part 6 of PPERA (26 Oct 2021)

Fleur Anderson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Pritchard. Part 4 and its provisions are a brazen attack on our democracy. They will undermine the ability of civil society organisations, charities and trade unions to engage and campaign in our democracy—that is why they are so controversial. We need to spend additional time considering them, and I hope that all Committee members will...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 4 - Building Safety Indemnity Scheme (26 Oct 2021)

Daisy Cooper: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause would require the Government to establish a comprehensive fund, equivalent to the Motor Insurers Bureau, to provide grants to remediate cladding and fire safety defects of all descriptions, paid for by levies on developers, building insurers and mortgage lenders. The End Our Cladding Scandal campaigners have made it clear...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 11 - Accommodation For Asylum-Seekers Etc (21 Oct 2021)

Tom Pursglove: The hon. Gentleman will be pleased to know that the people who organise my diary have confirmed that I am set to visit Napier in the not-too-distant future. I have been able to be responsive to that point pretty quickly. I will make some progress on his other point, and I hope to be able to visit it very shortly to provide him with the clarification he requires before concluding my remarks....

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 14 - Membership of the Speaker’s Committee (21 Oct 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Clause 14 will facilitate Government participation in proceedings of the Speaker’s Committee on the Electoral Commission. That is necessary because, given wider commitments, it has not always been possible for the Minister for the Cabinet Office to attend the Speaker’s committee meetings, despite the fact that they are an ex officio member of the Committee under the Political Parties,...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 10 - Differential treatment of refugees (21 Oct 2021)

Paul Blomfield: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate on his comprehensive critique of clause 10. I want to add only a few points on what is clearly at the heart of the Government’s approach in this Bill: seeking to create a hostile environment for refugees and splitting them into the two groups of which my hon. Friend spoke. I was interested to hear the Minister talk earlier...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 126 - Limitation periods (21 Oct 2021)

Rachel Hopkins: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairship again, Mr Dowd. I want to add my voice in support of the amendment tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Weaver Vale and of the points raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Brentford and Isleworth. I have similarly seen many developments go up in my home town of Luton, where I live. I am speaking for the leaseholders of Point Red, who have...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Clause 10 - Extension of franchise for parliamentary elections: British citizens overseas (21 Oct 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: My hon. Friend makes a good point about the complexity of that, which I will touch on later. We do not agree with amendment 85. We encourage campaigners, parties and interested people of whatever political stripe to play their part in informing British citizens living overseas about these changes and related matters. Amendment 86 would require a separate report on the impact on constituencies...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 10 - Differential treatment of refugees (21 Oct 2021)

Anne McLaughlin: Thank you, Chair, and good morning, everybody. The Government say they are introducing this Bill because they want people who need our protection to use safe and legal routes, but where are those routes? Where in the world and where in the Bill are they? On several occasions, the Minister has made it sound as if this Bill is all about those safe and legal routes, but it is not, because there...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 122 - Amendments to the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 (21 Oct 2021)

Eddie Hughes: In July 2020 the Law Commission published a report on reinvigorating commonhold, and it has made recommendations to make the tenure a workable alternative to leasehold tenure. In partnership with industry and leaseholders, the Government have also established a new commonhold council, which will prepare homeowners and the market for the widespread take-up of commonhold. Although there are no...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 8 - Requirements for naturalisation etc. (19 Oct 2021)

Tom Pursglove: The hon. Member for Glasgow North East speaks for the whole House in saying that immigration has made an enormously positive contribution to this country over decades. As elected Members and in our communities across the country, we should continually make mention of that and constantly reflect on it—I am certainly very conscious of it. Equally, I am conscious of the importance of righting...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 95 - Duties on residents and owners (19 Oct 2021)

Ian Byrne: It is an honour to serve under your chairship, Mrs Miller. If an accountable person is potentially utilising their position to bully a resident, what recourse does that resident have to challenge the notice, which may end up in eviction? What safeguards are in place for the resident? I find it concerning that this seems to be an awful lot of power. We have talked about imbalances of power on...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 85 - Medicine information systems (19 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I congratulate the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire on her amendments and the case she made for them. I remember with fondness that during proceedings on the Medicines and Medical Devices Act 2021 we were able to offer constructive ways in which information regarding medical devices could be collected and used. We managed to move the Government on that. I hope we have similar success on these...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 1 - Historical Inability of Mothers to Transmit Citizenship (19 Oct 2021)

Neil Coyle: I am not sure why the hon. Lady’s parents were concerned about Paris in particular, but the point is that they were able to make that choice. In these circumstances, children born and educated in this country who have never lived anywhere else do not have the right to decide whether they can go on a school trip. Returning to my point about the timeframes involved, the number of people...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 80 - Sharing anonymous health and social care information (19 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I thank colleagues for their contributions, which I thought were really good. This is an important area, and it is important that we give it a proper look. The points that the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire made about the different types of data were important, and the run-through of their benefits and disbenefits was well made. I know that we will get to them again when we debate future...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 69 - Meaning of “Accountable Person” Etc (19 Oct 2021)

Eddie Hughes: This group of amendments makes provisions on who the accountable person is for higher-risk building when the title to the building is held in commonhold. The commonhold association owns and manages the common parts of the building in accordance with the commonhold community statement framework. Amendment 48 ensures that the Bill is explicit in providing that where the title to the building is...
