Homes for Ukraine Scheme - Commons Urgent Question (31 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, during the Statement in the other place, the Minister said that 200,000 people were interested in the Homes for Ukraine scheme, yet figures released confirm that just 2,700 visas have been granted so far under the scheme. It appears that Ukrainians are not sufficiently aware of its existence. So what are the Government doing both to raise awareness and to simplify the process as...

Housebuilding: Target - Question (30 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, local authorities are crucial to meeting the Government’s housebuilding targets, but, if they are properly to master-plan and create the new communities that we need, they need new powers. So will the Minister support the reform of our arcane land compensation laws?

Building Safety Bill - Report (Continued): Amendment 115 (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has been an extremely important debate in which we have covered some of the critical issues still outstanding in the Bill. I thank the Minister for the introduction to the amendments. Many of them are good, but we believe there are still problems that need to be sorted out. I will be brief. I thank the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, for his introduction to Amendment 115. If he...

Building Safety Bill - Report (Continued): Amendment 22 (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I am very happy to accept the Minister’s assurance on this if we can have a meeting to follow up. Amendment 22 not moved.

Building Safety Bill - Report (Continued): Amendment 21 (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: Before the Minister sits down, I thank him very much for his response to my Amendment 22. Could he just clarify something, so that I am completely clear on it? Was he saying that the Government will exempt social housing from the levy and that an SI will be brought in? If I am correct in my understanding, I would be grateful for a meeting to discuss the detail of what he proposes will happen.

Building Safety Bill - Report (Continued): Amendment 21 (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, this has been a very interesting debate so far. In the interests of time, I will just speak to the two amendments I have in this group, and then I will be very interested to hear the Minister’s response to the broader debate and issues that have been raised, that were clearly also debated in Committee. Amendment 231 is about a registered social landlord not being able to “use...

Building Safety Bill - Report (Continued) (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her detailed response. I was very pleased to hear her response to the amendment on staircase safety from the noble Baroness, Lady Jolly. It is good that the Government are going to review this. I am sure noble Lords will keep the pressure on to make sure that that is done expeditiously. Coming to my Amendment 15, again, I thank the Minister for her response....

Building Safety Bill - Report: Amendment 15 (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, Amendment 15 is about building regulations and safety measures. It would insert a new clause that states: “The Secretary of State may amend the Building Act 1984 so that the duties imposed on the regulator by virtue of section 31 in respect of higher-risk buildings are imposed on local authorities that exercise building control functions in the area in which the building is...

Building Safety Bill - Report: Amendment 3 (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I start by thanking the Minister for his introduction to a large number of government amendments. Like other noble Lords, I think it is really important that the Government listened to a lot of our debate in Committee and have brought forward these amendments, as well as others that we will discuss later, in response. It is good that we are making such excellent progress in some...

Building Safety Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (29 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, turning first to Amendment 1 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Foster of Bath, we agree that longer-term protections for residents’ safety are absolutely critical. His amendment also raises the importance of how we manage longer-term protections relating to fire safety. Look at the government cuts to the fire service. Between 2010 and 2016, the Government cut central funding to...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 205 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her response. However, there seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether suitable consultation has been carried out on the Bill. The Consultation Institute states in its response: “Many of the proposed changes in the Bill are not accompanied by evidence detailing why they are necessary or desirable. Where evidence in support of changes is cited, it...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 197 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his response to this large group of amendments. In responding to my amendment, he said that there was a Conservative Party manifesto commitment to extend the franchise for overseas electors. My amendment was not about that manifesto commitment; it was about the donations that could then come in through that action. I was not saying that that should not...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 205 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, the hour is late, so I shall be brief in introducing my amendments in this group. I have spoken previously in Committee and in the House about the fact that I used to work in consultation—that was my profession—and was an associate of the Consultation Institute. So these amendments are around my concern about the lack of pre-legislative scrutiny and consultation on significant...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 197 (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, there are quite a number of amendments in this group, of which Amendment 197 is mine. I want to pay attention to amendments specifically looking at foreign interference in our elections and some of the consequences of the provisions to extend the overseas elector franchise. Under the previous group of amendments tabled in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, we discussed...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 160A (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I thank the Minister for the clarification she has provided, particularly around my amendment seeking to include fundraising. It would be extremely helpful if that could be added to the Explanatory Notes. She also explained that the Government want to future-proof intimidation sanctions, particularly online. When the Minister talked about varying the offences, did she mean just varying the...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 160A (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: So the “varying” bit is just to do with the description of the offence. I thank the Minister. As the amendments I have tabled show, my main concern is the fixed five-year period. Other noble Lords have raised that issue too—the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, rightly said that that is only one parliamentary term—so it would be good if the Government could look at that again. I will make...

Elections Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 160A (28 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I have a couple of amendments to Clause 28 in this group, and then further amendments, all looking at disqualification from elected office. My Amendments 160A and 161 to Clause 28 are really just to probe different government decisions as to why the Bill is laid out as it is. Amendment 160A is to probe the circumstances of elected candidates being found guilty of terrorism...

Glue Traps (Offences) Bill - Second Reading (25 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Fookes, for her excellent and thorough introduction to the Bill, which answered a number of questions that I had, having read it. As the noble Lord, Lord Randall, and others have said, she has a fearsome reputation as a champion of better animal welfare, and I am so pleased that she has introduced to the House this important Bill, which we will...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 145 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her response. I will just make a couple of points. One is that there is quite a bit of concern about this part of the Bill. The noble Lord, Lord Wallace, talked about concerns about proper checks, which is what we are very concerned about—making sure that those checks are done so that the people who are asking to come on to the register who have not been...

Elections Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued): Amendment 149 (23 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hayman of Ullock: I have very little to say other than that it is a very interesting suggestion and I thank the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, for bringing it forward and giving us food for thought. I had no idea that France had overseas constituencies until he tabled his amendment and I looked into it. It is an interesting suggestion.
