Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Examination of Witnesses (5 Jun 2018)

David Cox: Thank you, Mr Bone. We do not support the Bill. We do not think it will achieve its aims. The market has grown up over a period of time. It is already quite a heavily regulated market. We estimate that there are about 145 pieces of legislation and 400 sets of regulations that govern the lettings industry. When talking about greater clarity and control, one of the problems that we...

Public Bill Committee: Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Higher amount for long-term empty dwellings (1 May 2018)

Jim McMahon: The Labour party supports the Bill, but our manifesto suggested going further. Rather than a 200% premium, there would be a 300% premium and consideration of bringing the empty period to a year. There is a reason for that: the housing markets across the country are very different. The Bill will not address the problem of the concentration of empty homes in London. Figures provided by the...

Public Bill Committee: Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [Lords]: Duty to grant old-style secure tenancies: victims of domestic abuse (27 Mar 2018)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to serve for the first time under your chairship, Mr Rosindell, and to be part of this important Committee. I am conscious that there are lots of skilled and talented people in the room who are very experienced in the area of domestic abuse, so it is perhaps natural that I rise to speak with a little trepidation, but I care deeply about this issue and I want to make a couple...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Minor and Consequential Amendments (22 Mar 2018)

Amendments made: 191, in schedule 18, page 208, line 25, at end insert— “Registration Service Act 1953 (c. 37) A1 (1) Section 19AC of the Registration Service Act 1953 (codes of practice) is amended as follows. (2) In subsection (2), for “section 52B (data-sharing code) of the Data Protection Act 1998” substitute “section 122 of the Data Protection Act 2018 (data-sharing...

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No. 2) Bill: Main rates of income tax for tax year 2018-19 (9 Jan 2018)

Peter Dowd: I welcome the opportunity that my hon. Friend’s new clause presents to discuss the rate of income tax set by the Government, and its effect on the wider economy and on families. At the general election, we clearly outlined our position: as a Government, we would not ask ordinary households to pay more. We would guarantee that there would be no rises in income tax for those earning less than...

Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Nuclear safeguards (2 Nov 2017)

Richard Harrington: I fully accept the hon. Gentleman’s point. I only mentioned Ukraine and Switzerland because they were mentioned by the hon. Member for Southampton, Test in terms of associate membership. I accept that they are different; in fact, that would be one of my main points were I reading my notes, but I am not, because I am trying to respond to the question. Article 206 of the Euratom treaty deals...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Social investment tax relief (17 Oct 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for making that point, and I agree that this could apply to a range of different facilities. In many circumstances, this kind of arrangement is the only way to keep those facilities going. We could see them entirely disappear—we all know about the sad disappearance of community pubs in our areas—so I am grateful to her for making that point. In addition to...

Public Bill Committee: Prisons and Courts Bill: Prisons: purpose, and role of Secretary of State (29 Mar 2017)

Liz Saville-Roberts: I beg to move amendment 5, in clause 1, page 2, line 12, at end insert “and (b) steps taken in relation to meeting health targets specified by the Secretary of State on— (i) blood borne viruses, and (ii) substance abuse, including the provision of testing and treatment for hepatitis C.” This amendment ensures that the Secretary of State’s annual report on prisons includes...

Public Bill Committee: Bus Services Bill: Disability awareness training (16 Mar 2017)

Andrew Jones: I will come straight to new clause 7, which the hon. Lady tabled. That new clause seeks to provide the means by which wheelchair users must be given priority use of the wheelchair space on buses. I fully recognise the comments that have been made about how difficult this is for bus drivers. That is clearly a fair and accurate comment. I recognise the challenges that wheelchair users face in...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Needs assessment prior to each reset (21 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: I absolutely share that point. There are 12 sets of regulations and something like 56 new powers for the Secretary of State. We are not seeing a loosening of what binds the hands of local government; it is much more a tightening. I do not think that that will be well received. The main thing is how we move forward. There is so much uncertainty now, not just with the amount of demand in the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Commencement and short title (21 Feb 2017)

Gareth Thomas: I welcome that. I can only hope, given what the hon. Gentleman has just said, that there are no businesses in Swindon that are worried about the revaluation of business rates, which is what he implies. Perhaps we can discuss that issue when we consider amendment 54. We know that the social care system is in crisis. We do not want to make that worse, but we also know that a series of other...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Use of money raised by infrastructure supplements (9 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: The way the Bill is worded will only make lawyers wealthy and councils frustrated, because subsection (3)(a) is very clear that the money cannot be used for housing—we know what a house is—but paragraphs (b) to (f) are less clear, including with regard to social services. There is a difference between facilities and service provision within those facilities. The restrictions on what the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Discretionary relief for public toilets (9 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: The parish council will benefit from the clause. The question was whether the data on the number of public toilets included parish councils and I cannot confirm that. Notwithstanding that, it is hard to believe that all 1,700 toilets have been handed over to parish councils. I think we can assume that, given £31 million has been taken out of their provision, a significant number of public...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of non-domestic rates (7 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: I absolutely agree with that point and on the thrust of the challenge to come. I hope that in response the Minister will address that issue and those raised by the Select Committee and the LGA, and in the lesser-spotted consultation response, which hopefully we will get a flavour of later. When the safety net system was set up, the statement of intent—this was in 2012—was clear in its...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local Retention of Non-Domestic Rates (7 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. I will be quite brief, as I recognise that we are pushed for time in the morning sitting and that a vote will take place. My hon. Friend the shadow Minister will want to reply to that very brief response from the Minister, which I struggled with. My hon. Friend explained at length the concerns we have and probed in great detail...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of 100% of non-domestic rates (2 Feb 2017)

Gareth Thomas: The question of whether clause 1 should stand part of the Bill cuts to the heart of the debate about incentives for economic growth versus concerns about redistribution. In an intervention earlier today, the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton drew my attention—as if I needed it drawn—to the strong support of the Chair of the Communities and Local Government Committee, my hon. Friend the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of 100% of non-domestic rates (2 Feb 2017)

Gareth Thomas: My hon. Friend has always been far more charming and conciliatory than me, but he is right: we support the principle of 100% business rates devolution and want it to work for local government, given the huge importance of the services that local authorities provide for the people of England. He is absolutely right that we should have had all three elements together at the same time, so that...

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...
