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

Shaun Bailey: I am mindful that just looking at this clause triggers a lot of thought processes. As the hon. Member for Weaver Vale has just said, we might have thought that this was already a given: that if we get someone to do a job, they should have the skills and qualifications needed to do it properly. It triggers some broader thought processes on how we embed these legislative and regulatory...

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

Shaun Bailey: The hon. Gentleman makes a really important point. I am sure he and I are both passionate advocates of technical and vocational education, and this clause says that we have to treat the industry with some respect. That means having in place accreditation structures that are properly recognised. I get what he says about funding, and I am sure that my right hon. Friend the Minister has heard...

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

Shaun Bailey: Of course, although I am not a member of the Privy Council just yet.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 33 - Dutyholders and general duties (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Clause 33 is just common sense, really. It is ultimately about ensuring that those people who are appointing people, or those organisations that are making appointments to do work, are doing so in a way that is right and safe. I am conscious that I should not stray on to clause 34, but it is about ensuring that they appoint people with the ability to do the work and to perform those basic...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 33 - Dutyholders and general duties (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: That is a good question. What will be needed is a broader conversation with the industry, and the evidence from the Association of British Insurers was about that industry engagement. What we are trying to do with this legislation is to bring about cultural change, so that cultural change must be holistic. As part of that, we must be open to having those conversations with insurers and with...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 32 - Building regulations (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I grateful for the opportunity to speak on clause 32 which although very technical, is none the less very important. I want to speak about mandatory occurrence reporting, because I think that is a key matter. In order to understand trends and where consistent issues are becoming a problem it is key that disasters such as Grenfell are not allowed to repeat. We need to spot problems early. That...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 32 - Building regulations (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention; I am sure that there are some points that my right hon. Friend the Minister will pick up. I agree that enforcement is a really important part of this and has to be done properly. We discussed funding this morning. As my right hon. Friend indicated, there has been a funding uplift. As I said this morning, it will be on us to ensure that that...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 30 - Higher-risk buildings etc (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I shall be brief, as I am conscious of the fact that we have already touched on the clause. The point on which I wish to comment, which was highlighted in the comments of the hon. Member for Amesbury, is the ability of the Secretary of State to liaise with the Building Safety Regulator, as provided in the clauses added to schedule 5 to the Building Act 1984. The key is the facility to...

Data Breach: ARAP Applicants in Afghanistan (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am grateful for my right hon. Friend’s characteristic candour in addressing the issues. The sad fact is that we will probably see another Operation Pitting at some point in our lifetime. Can he assure me that he will work across the board, particularly with our allies, to ensure that information security standards are improved and that we continue to be at the forefront of protecting the...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 28 - Service of documents (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am sure that many on the Committee are wondering what on Earth I could have to say about the service of documents. I would, of course, have given way to the hon. Member for Brentford and Isleworth. I was hoping to rise to put an important question to the Minister, but I am glad that the hon. Member for Weaver Vale was able to help the hon. Lady. I know this is an incredibly technical...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 27 - Fees and Charges (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: This might seem quite a technical clause and set of amendments, but it is an important one. I speak as the Member for the 14th most deprived borough in the country. I am conscious that we have to strike a balance, and I was quite reassured by what my right hon. Friend the Minister said. Starting from the beginning, it is not uncommon for bodies to charge fees in respect of their activities,...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 26 - Cooperation and information sharing (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am incredibly grateful to my right hon. Friend; he is being generous in allowing me to intervene. Given his expertise as an IT specialist, does he not agree that one of the key things that we must do across Government when we implement these systems is take a lessons-learned approach? Will he assure me that he has looked in detail at some of the previous occasions when we have tried to...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 27 - Fees and Charges (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am incredibly grateful to my right hon. Friend for giving way; his characteristic generosity is shining through. I do not wish to lead him astray, but I am conscious of the broader spirit of what we are debating. We have just deliberated over clauses that talk about fines and sanctions. Will my right hon. Friend consider using the funds raised from that, and ensuring that they can be fed...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 26 - Cooperation and information sharing (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way; he is being incredibly generous in taking interventions. My hon. Friend the Member for Stroud and the hon. Member for St Albans mentioned ensuring efficiency in the broader process. Does my right hon. Friend the Minister agree that by enabling data sharing we can ensure that concerns and complaints are addressed by the appropriate person? More...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 26 - Cooperation and information sharing (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I feel that my contribution might be slightly repetitive, given the broad agreement on the clause in Committee. The hon. Member for Weaver Vale was right that the clause is pragmatic. He was spot on when he said it is about rebuilding trust in the processes. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Stroud, I trained as a lawyer and I know the frustration when bodies do not share information with...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 26 - Cooperation and information sharing (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: The hon. Gentleman touches on a really important point. I have a couple of points to address it. Last week, we heard from the Minister that there would be, broadly speaking, a new deal for funding. We also have to look at the procurement mechanisms that are used, in which I have a particular interest. They are really important and must be well scrutinised. We must use the procedures available...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 21 - Authorised Officers (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Does my hon. Friend agree that establishing criminal offences of obstructing the regulator’s work solidifies the regulator’s position, which is vital in ensuring residents’ safety?

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 21 - Authorised Officers (21 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to be back on a Committee with you, Mr Efford, and to see you in the Chair. I shall keep my comments brief because my right hon. Friend the Minister articulated most of the relevant points in his customary clear manner. I do not want to be repetitious. Clause 21 is positive. It reinforces the non-siloed approach that we need to take to building safety. The Building Safety...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 9 - Building Advisory Committee (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am sure we all agree that the inclusion of residents’ panels is absolutely vital. Does the Minister agree that the panels should be composed of the broadest possible range of residents? That would ensure that we do not have very small groups of residents who are not necessarily representative of the broader spectrum of those affected.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 8 - Duty to establish system for giving of building safety information (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I will keep my comments brief. Like other hon. Members, I support the clause. The key thing for me is that the Building Safety Regulator will sit within the HSE, which already has structures and competences to deal with these issues, particularly in terms of whistleblowing and sharing information. I completely agree with the sentiment that information must be accessible so people can make...
