Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 7 - Electronic communications code: the need to promote growth (29 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I know that it is unusual for the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Minister to speak, which is why I have swapped duties with my hon. Friend the Member for Salisbury, so that I can talk about the issue. In my time on the Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport, one of the key things we campaigned for was to get broadband...

Bill Presented — Energy Bill: Leveson Inquiry (29 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement today. There is a lot in the Leveson report that is to be welcomed. I share my right hon. Friend’s caution, but does not another important part of the evidence presented by Lord Leveson show that some of the smears against my right hon. Friend the Member for South West Surrey (Mr Hunt) were absolutely outrageous, including the Leader of the...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 5 - Modification or discharge of affordable housing requirements (27 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: During our public evidence sessions, I gave the example of an NHS trust absolutely refusing to include any affordable  housing in a development. There are people out there. It is not necessarily just the developers; it is also the clients.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Ambulance Trust Budgets (27 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: The Under-Secretary of State for Health, my hon. Friend the Member for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich (Dr Poulter), is my constituency neighbour. He will know that, although the East of England Ambulance trust is hitting its targets for the entire region, it is not helping in Suffolk. Will he advise on what more we can do locally to ensure that it serves all rural patients?

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Clause 1 - Option to make planning application directly to Secretary of State (22 Nov 2012)

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: Last week, we heard from a housing association how it had built some houses, and after people were living there, somebody tried to register it as a town and village green, which seems somewhat ridiculous. Where I used to live, I am delighted to hear again that a blocking application was turned down, because that was sensible; the land had never been used as a town or village green. May I ask...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: When the NPPF came out, the CPRE was painting a picture of doom that half the countryside was under threat from excessive development. I get that feeling again this time. I am thinking in particular of broadband. Colleagues have seats in the Peak district. I have about 40% of the AONB at Minsmere —the RSPB—and, frankly, my residents really do want broadband, and mobile, fixed, so I am a...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: It feels a little bit like doomsday scenarios are being painted here. Given that certain rights will continue to be guaranteed, such as those covered by anti-discrimination laws, it feels like a somewhat excessive reaction. Mr Callaghan, I understand that your firm is active in Tech City. Multiple tech business owners and founders have publically welcomed these proposals—I am thinking about...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: May I speak to Mrs Learmonth? Some groups claim that the provision in clause 7 will harm rural landscapes and impact tourism. Are their concerns justified?

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: There has been a lot of generalisation—broad brush things—saying, “If you do something quickly it means your quality goes down” and talking about examples of section 106 not being a blocker. I suggest you speak to NHS trusts, which are trying to develop property, and refusing to do any affordable housing as a consequence of that section. Frankly, given the number of stalled sites, is...

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of witness (20 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: I was going to ask about the broadband aspect. Has there been any evidence in your initial review that not being able to get planning permission has deterred investment in not only our rural landscapes, but some of our city landscapes?

Written Answers — Communities and Local Government: Council Tax (19 Nov 2012)

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: I want to follow up on the business rates evaluation. I understand why the Government are trying to give certainty to businesses in the near future, but what will the Minister say to those who do not have confidence in the evidence in the written ministerial statement yesterday—who think that they are going to be a winner when the likelihood is that they will be a loser?

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: Ms Peace, would you clarify why a judicial review was granted? It is usually on the grounds of process. I am a bit confused, because you say they are doing all the right things.

Public Bill Committee: Growth and Infrastructure Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Nov 2012)

Therese Coffey: Can I put it to you, Ms Reed, that architects, including some in my constituency, are going mad because councils are rejecting things because they do not like the design of them even though planning officers had given indications about that? Housing associations sometimes reject houses that have been built because they are not quite on spec, and then they are re-presented to the private...
