Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Members' Interests (26 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: The recommendations in that Committee on Standards in Public Life report are primarily a matter for the House of Commons, and are currently being considered by the House. In relation to the single recommendation on future outside interests of elected representatives, I would note that it is already the case that the press and public may ask questions of candidates on their intended outside...

International Men’s Day — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (25 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Don Valley (Nick Fletcher) for securing this debate and for his ongoing work to ensure that the issues faced by men and boys are not neglected. As chair of the all-party parliamentary group on issues affecting men and boys, he headed up the publication of the report “A Boy Today”, which is...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Business Premises: Empty Property (25 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: The business rates system ensures that the owners of most empty buildings pay 100% of the business rates bill once the property has been unoccupied for three months (or six months for industrial buildings). But we recognise that avoidance and evasion of business rates on empty properties are important concerns for local government so we are undertaking further detailed work and will consult...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Holiday Accommodation: Non-domestic Rates (25 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: In March, the Government announced that it will legislate to require that self-catering accommodation meets an actual lettings threshold before being assessed for business rates. Since then, my Department has been working with Treasury and the Valuation Office Agency to finalise the details of how and when this will be implemented. We will set out further details shortly in the Government’s...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Voting Rights: Immigration (25 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: The Government has no intention of extending full voting rights to all UK residents after a qualifying period of residency. Citizenship restrictions are the norm for participating in national elections in most democracies, including the UK. The right to vote in UK Parliamentary elections is restricted to British citizens and those with the closest historic links to our country.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Political Parties: Finance (25 Nov 2021)

Islamophobia Awareness Month — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Dowd. I thank all hon. Members for their contributions. It has been a very feisty debate, and it is quite clear that concerns about anti-Muslim hatred transcend party lines. I thank the hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton (Afzal Khan) for securing this debate. I say to him that I am not afraid of using the phrase “Islamophobia”. We are...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Political Parties: Finance (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: There is a long-standing principle – as originally recommended by the Committee on Standards in Public Life in 1998 – that permissible donors are those on the UK electoral register. If one can vote for a party, then one should be able to donate to it. Foreign donations are banned. Election law already allows for registered British expatriates to vote in UK Parliamentary elections, and...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Voting Methods: Visual Impairment (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: The Government welcomes the engagement from the RNIB and other disability charities in this important area. As noted in the response to Question UIN 58512, the intention of the policy is to improve the support available to voters with disabilities and ensure that Returning Officers are better able to support people with a wider range of disabilities by removing barriers to change and...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Cultural Heritage (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Historic counties are an important part of our history and traditions helping to instil community pride and strengthening long lasting ties that have bound our communities together. Whilst the boundary changes we are proposing, which relate to establishing unitary councils in Cumbria, North Yorkshire, and Somerset, have no direct impact on historic counties, we are very alive to their...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Elections: Campaigns (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Voters value transparency and that is why the Elections Bill introduces a digital imprints regime so that when voters engage with politics online they are clear who is promoting the campaign material and on whose behalf. Reflecting positive feedback to the technical consultation Transparency in digital campaigning launched by the Cabinet Office last year, the digital imprints regime proposed...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Companies: Political Parties (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Under the Political Parties Elections and Referendums Act 2000, political parties and regulated donees have a legal obligation to ensure that they only receive donations from permissible sources – and in the case of companies, that they are properly carrying on business in the UK. Companies must be registered with Companies House and incorporated in the UK. Corporate donations amounting to...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Organisations: Political Parties (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Unincorporated associations making political contributions of more than £25,000 in a calendar year must notify the Electoral Commission and are then subsequently subject to various reporting requirements relating to their own funding. Members’ associations (many of which are unincorporated associations) are separately regulated as regulated donees and must report on donations and loans...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Political Parties: Finance (24 Nov 2021)

The courts may levy unlimited fines and custodial sentences for some offences, as laid out in the Political Parties Elections and Referendum Act 2000 (as amended).

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Equality: Artificial Intelligence (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: We take this issue very seriously. On Monday my Rt Hon. friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced a review into possible inadvertent bias in medical devices. The Equality and Human Rights Commission has also set tackling the challenges faced by AI as one of the priority work areas in its draft strategic plan for the next three years. It is engaging with key...

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Females: Harassment (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: No one should feel afraid to participate in our democracy. Open, fair and safe participation is crucial. However, this freedom can never be an excuse to cause harm or spread hatred, and a line is crossed when disagreement mutates into intimidation, violence or abuse. Intimidation in public life can stop talented people, particularly women and those from minority backgrounds, from standing for...

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Females: Coronavirus (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Through initiatives like the Rose Review, the Investing in Women Code, the Women in Innovation Awards and the Women in Finance Charter, and through our manifesto commitments on flexible working and carer’s leave, we are committed to supporting and promoting the role of women in the economic recovery.

Women and Equalities: Diversity and Freedom of Belief: Public Institutions (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: I regularly discuss these important issues with other Ministers, as does the Minister for Women and Equalities. Freedom of belief and speech are vital pillars of our democratic society, and no one should be silenced for expressing their legitimately held opinions. Freedom of speech in universities is already protected by law, but there is no effective enforcement mechanism. The Government are...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (24 Nov 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: Building trust between different communities and the institutions that serve them was a central theme of the report by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. We will respond to the report shortly, setting out our plans for building back fairer, and I can assure my hon. Friend that his concerns will be at the heart of our response.
