King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (18 Gor 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I begin by congratulating, from the Opposition Back Benches, noble Lords opposite on their election victory. I wish them well in the challenges that lie ahead. In particular, I welcome the Ministers here today and congratulate them on their appointments. As someone who was recalled to the colours way past my retirement age on many occasions, I am delighted to see the noble Lord,...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 62 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I am grateful to all those who took part in this decade. I want to pick up a point raised by my noble friend Lord Bailey when he moved his amendment to the Building Safety Act, a point also picked up by the noble Baroness, Lady Pinnock. Had this Bill proceeded in the normal way, there would have been a whole series of amendments to the Building Safety Act to deal with some of the...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 62 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I hear the bell ringing as we enter the last lap. This amendment is also in the names of the noble Lord, Lord Best, and the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, neither of whom can be in their places at the moment. It deals with the regulation of property managing agents. In 2017, the Government committed themselves to regulating property managing agents to, “protect leaseholders and...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 44 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: I am grateful to my noble friend for responding to the debate and to all those who took part, particularly my noble friends Lord Bailey and Lord Moylan for supporting my amendment on forfeiture, as well as the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy. Interestingly, we have had a debate on protecting the interests of leaseholders wedged between a series of debates on protecting the interests of freeholders....

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 44 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, this will give my noble friends Lord Moylan and Lord Howard an opportunity to catch their breath. At the beginning of our proceedings, the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy, picked up the Marshalled List, waved it in a state of mild indignation and demanded to know where was the amendment on forfeiture. My noble friend the Minister said it was not there, but here it is, in my name rather...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I rise briefly to press my noble friend on Amendment 1. The Bill bans new houses being sold on leasehold, which is something I entirely support. Schedule 1 provides a rather narrow range of exemptions and Amendment 1 refers to retirement housing. I raised in Committee a product called Homes for Life, which looks as if it may be caught by this Bill. Basically, Homes for Life enables...

Diplomatic Missions: Congestion Charge - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: To ask His Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to diplomatic missions in London on the non-payment of the Congestion Charge.

Diplomatic Missions: Congestion Charge - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: I am grateful for that reply. I appreciate that the last Question of this Parliament is not setting the political agenda, but, my Lords, is not the objective of establishing an embassy in a foreign country to build a good relationship with that host country and does not a debt of £143 million, collectively, stand in the way of that objective? So, before any new ambassador is accredited to...

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, it is not a vote winner with the Young family, but what is the point of introducing new laws on cycling when we cannot enforce the existing ones—particularly new laws which would discourage children from cycling to school, which the Government are supporting with £60 million of funds?

Universities: Financial Sustainability - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the financial sustainability of universities in England.

Universities: Financial Sustainability - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: I am grateful to my noble friend. As she says, the universities are independent, but the Government set the framework within which they operate—freezing student fees for seven years and controlling student visas. Government has an overall responsibility to make sure that students get a good-quality education at universities and that they remain competitive internationally. What is my noble...

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I am all in favour of providing suitable sites for Gypsies, Travellers and those with a nomadic lifestyle. However, when the first official count was carried out in July 1979 there were a total of 8,065 Traveller caravans, and local authorities were urged to make suitable provision. There are now authorised sites for 21,000 Traveller caravans, but the number has gone up fourfold to...

Councillors: Publication of Addresses - Question ( 8 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: In the absence of my noble friend Lady Eaton and with her permission, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in her name on the Order Paper.

Councillors: Publication of Addresses - Question ( 8 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: I am grateful to my noble friend. Does she agree that those who stand for elected office should be protected from those who wish them or their families harm? That is why MPs and local councillors can withhold their addresses from ballot papers. However, councillors have no such right to withhold their addresses from the register of interests, despite the Committee on Standards in Public Life...

Health and Disability Reform - Statement ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I agree with what my noble friend has just said and the point made by my noble friend Lady Bottomley that, whoever is in power, the present regime is financially unsustainable. However, I also agree with what the noble Baroness, Lady Sherlock, said at the beginning: the tone and language that one uses when discussing reform is crucial. My noble friend gets that right, but can I ask...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 94 ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I will add a very brief footnote to the excellent speeches made by the noble Lord, Lord Best, and the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter. The point I want to make is that the market is changing. We are moving away from a position where the freehold of blocks of flats was owned by the Grosvenor estates, Cadogan Estates, the Portman Estate —professional freeholders—and they were well...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 93B ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Earl, Lord Lytton, who has been at the forefront of the campaign to extend protection to leaseholders since the Building Safety Act was passed. I say at the beginning that I will miss the contributions to our debates from the noble Lord, Lord Stunell, who was a regular contributor to housing debates and spoke with great authority. This group of...
