Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 55 - Appeals (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I will keep my comments brief. I appreciate that this is a technical clause, as my right hon. Friend has articulated well, but I will make a few brief points. Broadly speaking, I support the clause. It is right that we have people with the expertise to determine appeals. We must ensure that that is done in a way that provides public confidence, so people know that appeals have had due...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 51 - Information gathering (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I will keep my comments brief, to keep in line with the culture across the Committee so far. To complement what the hon. Member for Weaver Vale just said, I had hoped to intervene on my right hon. Friend the Minister’s point about consistency of process. The portal in clause 52 is welcome, but the back-office processes required to ensure that that is usable and feasible will clearly be...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 47 - Insurance (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I will keep my comments brief. I want to touch on whether primary legislation is the appropriate place to set out the specification. I fully appreciate and do not disagree with the comments that have been made on the need to see the detail. I completely agree with the comments of members across the Committee about the need to consult and to ensure that stakeholders are appropriately engaged....

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 41 - Regulation of building control profession (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I, too, welcome clause 41 and its effect on the Building Act. I want to raise a point with my right hon. Friend the Minister around clarity. We will effectively have two bodies in England and Wales that will deal with this. In England it is the regulator itself and in Wales it is Welsh Ministers. I would be grateful if he will confirm that he will ensure that his Department will keep that...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 39 - Liability of officers of body corporate etc (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am immensely grateful to my right hon. Friend, who is characteristically very generous. I would be interested to hear how the clause would deal with developers that dissolve, disappear or fall into difficulties as a result of this. He has been assisting me with a matter in my constituency, where a developer dissolved and left the residents in a bit of limbo, so he knows all about that.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 38 - Breach of building regulations (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I, too, welcome the clause. I wish to raise a couple of points with the Minister about the defences under proposed new section 35(2) of the Building Act, relating to instances where duty holders believe wrongly that another duty holder has reported an incident. It will be “A defence to the offence of failure to report where the person being prosecuted was not aware of the occurrence which...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 37 - Compliance and stop notices (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I should also have said in my previous contribution that it is a pleasure to see you back in the Chair today, Mr Efford, and I thank you for your indulgence during our previous deliberations. You are being very generous with your time in the Chair. I have a few questions for my right hon. Friend the Minister as well, dovetailing with what the hon. Member for Weaver Vale just said. The one...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 37 - Compliance and stop notices (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: To answer my hon. Friend’s question, we need to go back to what Dame Judith Hackitt said. She found a fundamental flaw in the regulatory framework. Effectively, it was giving unscrupulous developers almost a free pass at times. It was not fit for purpose. I believe that clause 37 will achieve the aims that my hon. Friend has articulated. I suppose this comes back to the point that the Bill...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 37 - Compliance and stop notices (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his intervention. Dame Judith Hackitt’s review highlighted a shameful system. Putting in place a criminal offence shows that we will not and should not tolerate this shoddy behaviour any more, and nor should those individuals who have had to suffer the highest cost as a result of it. He is right in what he says in the spirit of his intervention. He...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 37 - Compliance and stop notices (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am talking to clause 37. To help the hon. Member for Weaver Vale, I am responding to the intervention by my hon. Friend the Member for Bassetlaw. He asked a specific point about the categories of people caught by clause 37, so I am just expanding on that and explaining why it is right for those individuals. I am saying, just as my right hon. Friend the Minister pointed out in his opening...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 36 - Determination of certain applications by Secretary of State or Welsh Ministers (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: This is a really important clause. My right hon. Friend was rather succinct in his comments, but he touched on the balancing of the environment with the Bill. As we talked about in our previous deliberations earlier this week, we want to ensure that we can still have the environment in place in order to continue to build, because we still need to build homes and ensure that there is an...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 36 - Determination of certain applications by Secretary of State or Welsh Ministers (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am grateful to my right hon. Friend. He said that there would not be specific timeframes in the Bill, but can he assure me that there will be ongoing monitoring? The one thing that the clause seeks to achieve is an expedient process, which previous clauses have done as well. Will he touch on how monitoring of the process will be implemented to ensure the aims of the clause are enacted?

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 34 - Industry Competence (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am not sure whether the question was to me or to the Minister, but I will give my opinion, as I am sure the Minister will give his. From my perspective—you are being very indulgent, Mr Efford, so thank you—what clause 34 does for productivity is to push the point on accreditation and on being sure that people have qualifications, so that a young person thinking about where to go hears,...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 34 - Industry Competence (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I will make a probably revolutionary point: I might be a Conservative MP but, yes, trade unions have a part in this—110%. The discourse with the trade unions is beneficial. I, too, have benefited from positive relationships with my trade unions when necessary. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. Again, part of that is the holistic approach. That is the whole point of how the clause has...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 34 - Industry Competence (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I shall answer briefly. I am not entirely sure whether clause 34 would address those issues. Malpractice is a business competency issue. In terms of the ability to undertake the work, clause 34 sets the base expectations, but I do not think it will solve all of that. To sum it up, clause 34 sets the base, and will, I think, trigger further conversations, similar to those we have had today. I...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 35 - Lapse of building control approval etc (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: My right hon. Friend Minister might intend to touch on this—if so, I apologise for pre-empting him—but in the scenario of a multi-purpose development, could he clarify what would happen if a developer of builder had started work on one building in a multi-building development? Would that still lapse? I am conscious that that is a way in which the system might be gamed.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 34 - Industry Competence (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: My right hon. Friend is being generous in taking interventions. He touched on the skills piece for individuals. The running theme within the Bill is about co-operation and communication with different stakeholders. How important does he think it will be for the BSR to be engaged, particularly with further education providers, in order to ensure that the benchmarks that are set as a result of...
