Written Answers — Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Devolution: Sheffield City Region (14 Feb 2018)

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

Paul Sweeney: ...society? Data is not gathered on that issue. Possilpark and Springburn fall into the most deprived decile on the Scottish index of multiple deprivation, including for employment, health, education and housing. That seems to be the case for a lot of areas with branch closures, certainly in the Glasgow area, and it would be interesting if the Government could oblige banks to provide the data...

Margaret Greenwood: ...in poverty will soar to a record 5.2 million over the next five years because the Government’s social security cuts are biting deepest on households with young families.

I thank the Economic Affairs Committee for its report, Brexit and the Labour Market,...

Work and Pensions Committee (8 Feb 2018)

Frank Field: I hope I will also leave the House silenced by my report, and I hope to do so in record speed. The House passed a motion on 5 December 2017 agreeing that the Select Committee on Work and Pensions should review the five project assessment reviews on universal credit. The Government went beyond that and gave us other papers. All the papers were almost unreadable, and the fact that they are now...

Environmental Audit Committee (8 Feb 2018)

State Pension Age (8 Feb 2018)

Jack Dromey: ...statement does nothing to address the pensions injustice these women face. The Government have had multiple opportunities to act, so why is the Minister again refusing to use the opportunity of a motion passed by this House to do so to take further steps? It is unacceptable that we are having to make this same argument and raise the same points again because this Government continue to...

Acute and Community Health (8 Feb 2018)

Stephen Barclay: ...of cover-up, the Secretary of State has provided leadership in bringing about the culture change on patient safety. Following the awful situation in Mid-Staffordshire, it was recognised across the House that changes needed to be made on patient safety, and I think the NHS itself has recognised that. NHS Improvement has new leadership, who commissioned the Kirkup report themselves. On the...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy (8 Feb 2018)

Valerie Vaz: I thank| the Leader of the House for her statement and for her leadership of the group. We started this task on 14 November and worked on it until 29 January, and it felt like a long time. All credit must go to the staff, who heard our discussions and made sense of our ramblings, queries and questions. The result is this document, which I think makes some sense. When the new scheme is...

Housing Associations - Question (8 Feb 2018)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: My Lords, I refer the House to my relevant interests in the register. Does the Minister agree that the loss of more homes for social rent, as outlined by the noble Lord, Lord Shipley, is making a difficult situation even worse, and that as people move into more expensive rental properties the taxpayer ends up paying more for the increased housing benefit bill for those tenants who claim that...

Business of the House (8 Feb 2018)

Valerie Vaz: I thank the Leader of the House for the forthcoming business and ask again about the date that we will rise in July. Obviously, people need to plan their lives. I know that the Government are focused on Brexit, but will the Leader of the House explain the European Research Group? Does she know whether it will be publishing any sectoral analysis or impact assessments, or is it another secret...

Same-Sex Marriage in Bermuda (8 Feb 2018)

Chris Bryant: ...holding same-sex marriages at sea. Does the Minister not worry that when she tells the Russians to respect LGBT rights in Chechnya, or when she tries to convince India, Pakistan or Indonesia to change the law to benefit LGBT people, those countries will just laugh at her and say, “The first territory in the world to repeal same-sex marriage is British Bermuda, and they did it with...

Royal Assent: Motability (8 Feb 2018)

Esther McVey: First, I thank the hon. Gentleman for his work and for his courage in pursuing the matter. I also thank the media for exposing the situation.

I would like to work with him on that, to bridge the divide of party politics and do what is right. We need to...

Fulton MacGregor: .... It aims to offer greater powers to the islands local authorities and to meet the specific challenges of their communities.

We must accept that the challenges in addressing those issues are different from the challenges in addressing similar issues on the mainland, which is why we need the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Fixed Odds Betting (8 Feb 2018)

Philip Davies: It is not like the right hon. Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms) to give the House an ill-informed rant, but that is what we heard. I notice that the Secretary of State did not actually answer the question on the Order Paper, which is about the cost to the public purse of a reduction in the stake. Will he indicate what the cost to the Exchequer would be of the lack of tax receipts,...

Woodlands Hospice, Aintree (7 Feb 2018)

Jackie Doyle-Price: ...believe it is right that CCGs have the autonomy to shape local services according to local need, but it is important that we do more to provide commissioners with the tools, evidence, support and guidance to demonstrate the benefits of delivering our vision for end-of-life care. A crucial part of that is strengthening the provision of end-of-life care services outside hospital and in the...
