Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Temporary Accommodation: Children (17 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The statutory homelessness statistics for England publish quarterly data from local authorities containing information on families in temporary accommodation at the end of each quarter. Data can be found at Statutory homelessness in England: October to December 2023 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk). Details of the length of time families with children are housed in temporary accommodation are published...

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The £10 million Traveller site fund closed on 13 June 2023. Overall, 97 bids for funding were received from 66 local authorities across England, nine local authorities were successful and 16 sites received a share of the £10 million fund.

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: What is being delivered are 10 pitches on one new transit site, 225 pitch refurbishments over 14 sites, and 14 pitch refurbishments and an extension to one permanent site. Those projects are already in development according to their plans.

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: We do not intend at this time to put any more money in as we did with the £10 million. However, local authorities can go to the affordable homes programme, which has £11.5 billion. That fund is being used by local authorities to provide pitches where they need them.

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My noble friend asks an interesting question to which I do not have the answer, but it is probably very complex and there will be numerous reasons for it. Interestingly, last year the number of caravans on unauthorised encampments decreased by 21%, which gives me the feeling that those people who take this nomadic lifestyle are using authorised camps to live in.

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I thank my noble friend Lord Bourne for all his work when he was a Minister in my position. I do not have an update on the Bourne review, but I will certainly write to the noble Baroness and the House with an update on it.

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: No. That is a very recent decision. I do not know that there are any plans but, certainly as soon as we have them, I will let the noble Baroness know.

Traveller Site Fund - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I do not know of any research on that. I am sure my noble friend will have his views on it and others will as well. I do not think we have any definite evidence on that so I would rather not make any further comment.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Proportional Representation (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The Government was elected on a manifesto which included a commitment to continue to support use of the First Past the Post voting system. The Government believes that the First Past the Post system is a robust and secure way of electing representatives, that is well understood by voters, and provides for strong and clear local accountability. It ensures a clear link between elected...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Local Government Services: Rural Areas (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: The final Local Government Finance Settlement for 2024-25 makes available up to £64.7 billion, an increase in Core Spending Power of up to £4.5 billion or 7.5% in cash terms on 2023-24. This above-inflation increase demonstrates how the Government stands behind councils up and down the country. Furthermore, we recognise the importance and difficulties of councils serving dispersed...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, Local Government Minister Simon Hoare MP wrote to all local authorities last month to remind them that the Localism Act’s “sensitive interests” provision enables councillors to request that their home addresses be withheld from publication and to urge that such requests be accommodated. Primary legislation would be needed to make provision that home addresses should not be...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My noble friend is right that the safety of our elective representatives is essential to the security of this country. Protecting our democratic values and our processes for democracy is one of the most important duties that government has. Any councillors with concerns about the publication of their home addresses on published versions of the register of interests can and should use the...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: I will certainly take that back to the department. Anything more that we can do to protect democracy, particularly in local elections, we will do—I will make sure that I do that myself. On 28 February, the Prime Minister announced that he was putting an additional £31 million over the next year into strengthening security not just for MPs but for all locally elected representatives. He...

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: My Lords, we have already enacted one of the recommendations from the Committee on Standards in Public Life, about candidates, but, as I said before, the issue of local councillors is more difficult, as we need primary legislation to change that. We are keeping our eye on when we can do it.

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: As far as families are concerned, my noble friend is absolutely right. That is why they are mentioned under the “sensitive interests” provision and protected in the same way as councillors. As far as the House of Lords and Peers are concerned, I will take that back to the relevant House officials.

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

Baroness Scott of Bybrook: This is exactly what the Government have said they will look to do as soon as they get legislative time. At the moment, it is better that we have an opt-in, or is it an opt-out? I cannot remember which way it is; noble Lords will know what I mean. It is important to have this while we are waiting for that further legislation.
