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...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 6 - Facilitating improvement in competence of industry and building inspectors (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I welcome the aims of the clause, in combination with other clauses. It is right that the regulator is able to review competences. As we heard in the evidence sessions, the one thing we are trying to fight here is the race to the bottom in standards and in how people behave in the industry more broadly. On the point that the hon. Member for Weaver Vale made, we heard interesting evidence...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 4 - Duty to facilitate building safety: higher-risk buildings (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Absolutely, and the hon. Lady made a really interesting point that allows us to think about how that would operate. We talk quite abstractly about things, and the clause in particular sounds very nice, but when we consider the detail of its operational function, we realise that a lot of people caught by the provision will have someone above them in the ownership chain. How can we ensure that...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 5 - Duty to keep safety and standard of buildings under review (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I, too, welcome the clause. I think it is representative of the broad intention in the Bill for there to be collaboration, because collaboration will be a really important part of this story as we move forward. I know how it complements the building advisory committee, which we will talk about more broadly later. It is really positive that there will be this ongoing review. That is absolutely...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 4 - Duty to facilitate building safety: higher-risk buildings (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I will be brief, because I think this clause and the amendment to it are relatively straightforward. The hon. Member for Brentford and Isleworth makes an interesting point. I will explain my understanding of how that will work—forgive my ignorance if I get this wrong. For some of the scenarios that she highlighted, such as student accommodation and holiday lets, I imagine that a structure...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. Again, I find myself being slightly repetitive. I do not disagree with the sentiments of the hon. Member for Weaver Vale. On this point, he and I will probably find a lot of common ground. However, the amendment strays slightly into the planning space—I almost get the impression that the hon. Gentleman is perhaps trying to tease...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention, and I see her point, but I maintain the point that I made: we are slightly straying here. I see what she says, because if a building is fundamentally unsafe, of course the new Building Safety Regulator would need to intervene. I question whether we need the amendment to say that, though. I am concerned that perhaps these conversations are happening...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Of course I will give way to the hon. Gentleman.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I do not disagree with the hon. Gentleman. One point that I would make, now that I have been able to gather my notes, is that clause 5 kind of addresses the issue. It says: “The regulator must keep under review— (a) the safety of people in or about buildings in relation to risks as regards buildings, and (b) the standard of buildings.” To pick up on the point that the hon. Member for...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I relayed this point to my right hon. Friend the Minister earlier. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is very important that the regulator should not be siloed in its approach to building safety? While I agree with the point that she is articulating about the broad definition of welfare, does she agree that it is going to be important to ensure that the regulator is looping in with different...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: My right hon. Friend is being incredibly generous with the interventions he is taking. He has made a good point about the Building Safety Regulator not necessarily having the levers, but does he agree that it will be imperative for the BSR to ensure that it engages proactively with all the different Government stakeholders that do have the levers to pull, to ensure that, irrespective of the...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: In the light of your comments, Mr Dowd, I shall try to keep mine short and sweet. I do not disagree with a lot of what the hon. Member for Weaver Vale said. My concern, as a constituency Member who had real flooding issues last year, is that planning is a real patchwork. That is one thing that we perhaps need to go further on. The hon. Gentleman talked about house building, and he will know...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: The hon. Member for Weaver Vale makes an interesting point, but I come back to my point about the environment we are dealing with from a legislative point of view. As an esteemed former member of Manchester City Council, he is much more experienced than me, and he understands the issues. We are crossing into the boundaries of planning reform as well. I do not disagree that that needs to be...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 3 - The regulator: objectives and regulatory principles (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: The hon. Member is trying to tempt me into speculation on matters I have no control over, unfortunately. I could not possibly say, purely because I do not wish to speculate. To round up, I do not disagree with the hon. Member for Weaver Vale’s sentiment, but there is a better way that we can do it, outside the amendment.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 2 - The building safety regulator (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: The hon. Gentleman is very experienced in local government and an experienced member of the HCLG Committee. Does he not agree that it will be really important to ensure that the regulator has a culture of independence? I am sure he will agree that ensuring that the regulator is beholden to no one but itself will be the only way to ensure that it truly keeps people safe.

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 2 - The building safety regulator (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Dowd, to participate in this Committee and to follow the hon. Member for Weaver Vale. His contribution was fascinating, and I want to pick up on one of his points about clause 2. I hear what he is saying about not necessarily dealing with the present, but clause 2 is also focused on the future. I am sure he will agree that we have to...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 2 - The building safety regulator (16 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I thank the hon. Lady for her question. My hon. Friend the Member for Bolton North East made a similar point about resourcing to the Minister. The Minister referred to a funding uplift, and I am hopeful. Obviously, I have no control over those levers, but I would be hopeful that part of the resource uplift would go into that. I do not disagree; the hon. Lady is absolutely right: if we are...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of Witness (14 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Q Thank you for being here today. I want to go back to a point that was touched on in our earlier session about market culture. The narrative that we have seen painted so far is that the present structure is pitting freeholders and developers against tenants and creating structural inequality. From your perspective, how far does the Bill go to balance that out when it comes to safety?...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of Witness (14 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Q I wanted to touch on accountable persons, because the Bill creates that role. One of the things that you have talked about throughout your evidence is the relationships that the fire service has to build with different stakeholders. What pressures do you think your members will have in terms of this new category of person? Notwithstanding what you said about resource, if tomorrow you had...
