I do understand that the Government will shortly be coming forward with plans to tackle some of the abuses in the leasehold sector, but it is vital that they create not only a clear and fair framework for new builds, but a strategy to deal with the rotten mess that developers have created. There appears to be some self-awareness at last by developers that leasehold homes are...

Jobcentres and the DWP Estate — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Jul 2017)

Chris Stephens: .... The highest proportion of indices of multiple deprivation data zones in Scotland are in the city.

Brexit: Trade in Goods (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2017)

Lord Marland: ...brought up with the simple tenet that the country and people do better when government does least. If ever there was a moment in our time when this exists, it is now.

It is therefore no surprise—I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Livingston...

Viscount Younger of Leckie: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hollick, for his work as chairman of the Economic Affairs Committee, a position he stepped down from at the end of the last Parliament.

Baroness Rock: ...skills pipeline they rely on to get the right people to drive their business forward. Here we see a recurring theme.
