Courts and Tribunals: Administration Charges - Question for Short Debate (16 Jan 2017)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: ...have been seriously eroded. It is essential that this does not go unrecognised. Whereas in the past everyone had direct, affordable access to some fair processes of resolution, these have been and are being removed.

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform (20 Dec 2016)

Ruth Cadbury: That is yet another example of poor practice—and that would be a generous term. We have heard about the difficulties of people who buy park homes.

First, there is clearly a need in these days when communications have moved on so far to regularise this position. I was really surprised that even the Court of Protection could not authorise someone else to do it on your behalf—that amazed me. I thought that it had supreme powers to take over...
