Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 14 - Agency to manage building safety works and funding (26 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: We did see that, and I certainly do not want to undermine the work that individual leaseholders have done to get a grasp of the system. That is not what I am trying to say. I want to see a system that is as easy as possible to navigate. Yes, we have seen those examples and I completely get that, but I could equally refer to individuals in states of absolute emotional distress who would have...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 14 - Agency to manage building safety works and funding (26 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I think that we agree with the idea of turbocharging and streamlining the process, but where we disagree is on how we go about doing that. I question whether a building works agency in the form prescribed in the new clause would do that. My other slight concern is that we are already part way through a process of remediation. I want to see that process improved in the ambits in which it...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 14 - Agency to manage building safety works and funding (26 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: The hon. Gentleman is right in what he says about moving things forward in the longer term, which is how I took it. It is incumbent on me and him to get the new Secretary of State to ensure that this works in the way that those who have been affected would expect. I am sure that my right hon. Friend the Minister is waiting with bated breath for the representations that I will make to him to...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Assessment of mental health impact for leaseholders in dwellings with building safety risks (26 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I want to understand this from a practical point of view, so could the hon. Lady clarify—I apologise if she has covered this; I am listening intently to what she says—who would draft these reports? More broadly, given the obviously untold scale mental health impact this crisis has had, what assessment has she made of the impact on existing services, from which we would have to take...

Employment and Trade Union Rights (Dismissal and Re-engagement) Bill (22 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: First, I am sure the Minister will agree that the hon. Member for Newbury (Laura Farris) is not just some “new Member”, but an experienced employment barrister who has practised in this field for some time. Secondly, let me return to a point that has been articulated by my hon. Friend for Newbury in particular. If we are going to make law, it has to work on the ground, because otherwise...

Employment and Trade Union Rights (Dismissal and Re-engagement) Bill (22 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Employment and Trade Union Rights (Dismissal and Re-engagement) Bill (22 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: My hon. Friend the Member for Newbury (Laura Farris) is a lot more learned on this matter than we are, but as a general point, does my hon. Friend the Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake) not agree that the way in which we make good laws in this place is by ensuring that they are operational? Does he not share my concern that the Bill is very much open to legal challenge in its...

Health Incentives Scheme (22 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Sometimes the risk of such schemes is that they become a little bit siloed. We have heard, in contributions from other Members, talk about co-operation. Can my hon. Friend reassure me that any insights will be used to inform the response across Government, and that she will ensure that we take a collaborative approach to ensure a long-term gain, not a short-term success?

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 137 - Housing complaints made to a housing ombudsman (21 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: On Monday I met the National Housing Federation, and a point was made about tenant engagement. Sometimes the risk is that those who do not speak up have the most serious issues and are not being heard. As part of the hon. Gentleman’s amendment, which is very interesting, how does he feel that, operationally, we can ensure that tenants who often do not make complaints are actually heard?...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 127 - Establishment of the new homes ombudsman scheme (21 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Will my hon. Friend confirm that the provisions will allow the new ombudsman scheme to work effectively with other ombudsmen and redress schemes to maximise its impact for affected residents?

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 126 - Limitation periods (21 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: My right hon. Friend will also be aware that it is possible, in the course of litigation, to make an application for those periods to be disregarded in the event that it can be proven to the tribunal that there are circumstances that make it possible to do so. Notwithstanding the conversations that we have had in Committee on the cost of litigation, does he agree that there are avenues by...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 124 - Service charges in respect of remediation works (21 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Will statutory guidance be issued to landlords on what constitutes “reasonable steps”? If not, what engagement work will the Department do to ensure that landlords properly understand their regulatory duties under the clause?

International Trade: Free Trade Agreement: India (21 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: What recent progress her Department has made on securing a free trade agreement with India.

International Trade: Free Trade Agreement: India (21 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Businesses in Wednesbury, Oldbury and Tipton are excited about the prospect of a trade deal with India. Can I ask my right hon. Friend what work she is doing with businesses with existing links to India to ensure that we can really leverage those connections and make sure that areas such as the Black Country—which I know my right hon. Friend is going to visit very soon to see some of those...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 109 - Notification by regulator before applying to vary special measures order (19 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Speaking to what my hon. Friend has said, I appreciate that we are dealing with a very technical clause, but it is important that we have the opportunity to be as flexible as we need to be and enable variations to take place, because quite often in these circumstances orders can need to be varied. Although this is a very technical clause, it allows us to have the flexibility and fluidity we...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 102 - Notification by regulator before applying for special measures order (19 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mrs Miller. Just to expand on the response that my hon. Friend gave, does he agree that with the preceding clauses we have created a building safety sector and profession that will ultimately have their own professional regulatory obligations? If someone is going in as a professional within that sector, is it really worth their...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 83 - Assessment of building safety risks (19 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Dowd, and to see a fellow Black Country MP on the Treasury Bench. I agree wholeheartedly with what the Minister said, but we need to ensure that we do not allow anyone to test the boundaries, particularly when it comes to such things as regular intervals on assessment. He encapsulated a lot of what I was going to say in his contribution....

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Employment (18 Oct 2021)

Shaun Bailey: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what recent estimates she has made of the number of people who have found employment through Plan for Jobs skills and employment programmes.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 57 - Levy on applications for building control approval in respect of higher-risk buildings (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am really pleased to speak both to the clause and to the amendment tabled by the hon. Member for Luton South. As someone who probably would not be here were it not for social housing, I completely agree with the sentiment behind her amendment and with most, if not all, of what she said about the need to build more social housing, and in particular, her point about improving the quality of...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 57 - Levy on applications for building control approval in respect of higher-risk buildings (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I very much concur with the sentiment behind the amendment, as someone who is very passionate about social housing, as my right hon. Friend knows. Will he ensure that the consultation is as broad as possible, because social housing providers, as I am sure we all know, come in many different forms—it is a complex landscape? Can he reassure me that we will see the broadest possible...
