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

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, we are really close to the end. This is a very similar amendment to one that I proposed in Committee. In following on from what the noble Lord, Lord Moylan, said about the meeting with the Minister, I also had a meeting with the Minister half an hour before the election was announced, in which it was indicated that there was some interest by the Government in supporting this...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 13 (24 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, the noble Lords, Lord Hintze and Lord Robathan, both made the point that there had not been enough scrutiny of leasehold in this Bill. They also both said, “I’m sorry I haven’t spoken on this before”. I will just point out that there has been a fair bit of scrutiny on this Bill. There has also been a whole range of debates on leasehold since I have been in the House—for...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 13 (24 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: The context of my point about clarity was slightly different. Anyway, the final thing is that the bankruptcy many leaseholders face, because of service charges and some of the things this Bill tries to deal with, is just being ignored. The final thing is that I object to this notion that it is an attack on property rights and to this idea that people do not understand. People who buy...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 13 (24 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: It is very fashionable to say “I am not a lawyer”, but lots of lawyers who work in property and housing support this Bill but think it does not go far enough. It is not just all bluster and passion. That is misleading. My final retort to come back is that I am defending people who buy a property to live in. People who buy a property that they then rent out are, as far as I know, not the...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 8 (24 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: I do not want to just go through the motions. I just want to understand the process so that we do not bother speaking to every group of amendments just for the sake of it. Clarity would be helpful on the Government’s attitude to the positive amendments that have been put in by the likes of the noble Lord, Lord Bailey. I thank my heckler as well. It is always appreciated.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 8 (24 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, it is very difficult for us at this stage because a huge number of amendments have suddenly emerged. When I heard that the Government were putting forward so many, I was quite pleased, because I had had a very productive meeting with the noble Baroness, Lady Scott; I thought that we had made some strides in Committee and that there would be an attempt by the Government to strengthen...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, I want only to reflect slightly on some of the comments that have been made about the tone of the debate, and in particular the attack against the noble Lord, Lord Pannick. I have been shocked by the tone of the debate against the points of noble Lord, Lord Pannick. The argument seems to be that this is a Tory conspiracy theory, that the Tories are in bed with the press barons, and...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Third Reading: Motion (23 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, I just want to say that it is the Victims and Prisoners Bill and it is very important that we acknowledge the work that has been achieved for IPP prisoners. I thank the team for that. Even though I wanted it to go further, I understand when progress has been made. The noble and learned Lord, Lord Bellamy, will not mind me saying that the noble Lord, Lord Roborough, and the noble...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 120A (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords—

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 120A (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, how do I follow those words about pinko commie Conservatives? Quite easily. Perhaps we would not start from here, but as we are here, I too warmly welcome the Government’s concessions. They show that the Minister has been listening in Committee and at all the meetings. I hope that his listening continues, because there are many very fine amendments in this group, as reflected by...

Leaseholders: Management Companies - Question (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, one pithy slogan that has come from the Government is that those who pay should have a say. I could not agree more. Will the Minister agree that, ultimately, the best solution for giving a say and empowering leaseholders would be ensuring that they have right to manage? I am not going to nag about this Bill, but does the Minister not agree that the best way of empowering for the...

Electricity: Cost-competitiveness - Question (16 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords—

Electricity: Cost-competitiveness - Question (16 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: On the hidden costs of harnessing wind power, which seems to be a theme, will the Minister acknowledge that, in any wind turbine, there is a huge amount of steel, fibreglass, resin, plastic, copper, aluminium, iron and cast iron? Therefore, does the Minister acknowledge that, for decades to come, these materials will be extracted and manufactured only with the help of fossil fuels? As is...

Parc Prison - Commons Urgent Question (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: With no Back-Benchers.

NHS England: Ovarian Cancer - Question ( 2 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, I welcome the untangling of linguistic confusion and the implications for policy. However, when the Minister says, “When we say ‘woman’, we all know what we mean”, I am not convinced that that is true in policy circles. Increasingly, inclusive linguistic demands are that “women” includes men who self-identify as women, which means that by-women and for-women provision,...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Tenants: Community Development ( 2 Mai 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: To ask His Majesty's Government, following recent polling by the Belonging Forum which found that renters are more likely than the general population to (1) feel lonely, (2) not know their neighbours, and (3) feel unsafe walking home in the dark, whether they are developing any policies to promote greater integration of renters in their local communities.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 85 (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: Briefly, I thank those who have spoken, as it is the last group of the day. The noble Baroness, Lady Thornhill, has made some excellent contributions throughout, but really summed up why I tabled this amendment in the first place. The noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Stevenage, has obviously been reflecting on this issue too, as has the Minister. Particular thanks go to the noble Lord, Lord...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 84 (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, the proposed new clause is totally necessary—I disagree with the Minister on that—but I understand the need to withdraw. The only thing that I would just clarify is that all the organisations that are run for leaseholders are no good to people who do not know what a leaseholder is when they buy their flat and then find out that they are leaseholders. You do not think of yourself...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 85 (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: My Lords, I am bored of my own voice, too, so bear with me. It is just that I think that this is an important issue. Through this amendment, I am asking the Government to bring out a review of the specific leasehold property market for pensioners and the elderly, which I would have thought would be of particular interest to all of us in this House who might be looking in that market area. To...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 84 (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: Last week, after I spoke in the debate, I received a message from someone I know quite well. It said: “I’m currently in the final stages of trying to buy a leasehold flat and am pretty worried about what I’m getting myself into. The freeholder, a Housing Association, has increased the service charge by 27% since I had my offer accepted and there seems to be nothing to stop them doing so...
