Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 15:59
Preet Kaur Gill: I thank the Minister for his response and for paying tribute to councils up and down the country. I also thank him for acknowledging the real challenges local government faces. Although I welcome the £1 billion for the troubled families programme, there is still so much more to be done. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham West and Royton (Jim McMahon), who reminded us about the...

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: I beg to move, That this House has considered local government funding. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Walker. I declare an interest as a vice-president of the Local Government Association, a superb organisation that fights for the interests of local government on many levels, delivering services, empowering communities and investing in our future. The Government’s...

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. The Government can do it when they try—instead of wasting that money, which is the kind of money that local government absolutely needs right now. I am sure the Minister will tell us that the extra £1.6 billion is a great success that shows that the Government are listening, but can he tell us why has it taken them so long to acknowledge the failure of...

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend rightly describes the plight of her council, and it is the same for many councils up and down the country. I hope that the Minister will really take stock of hon. Members’ contributions today; it is great to see so many Members present to debate local government finance, which is such an important topic.

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I hope that the Government really listen to what Members say today about the devastating impact of cuts to councils in their constituencies.

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend’s important intervention tells us about the plight of councils as a result of non-statutory services not getting the investment that they need. We will end up with councils delivering only statutory services, which will by no means meet the needs of our diverse communities. In the context of Birmingham’s projected population growth of 121,000 by 2031, the cuts will mean...

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend raises an important point, which I will touch on later. Not only was that devastatingly large amount taken across the country, but the spending cuts hit more deprived areas far harder than other areas, a point which I will come back to later. The Government often mock Members asking for more money for a particular cause, but that misses the point. These cuts are not just about...

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend makes a really important intervention. The figures are harrowing. I hope the Minister is listening carefully and will respond to Members’ interventions at the end of the debate. Local government is not homogenous. The service needs of their populations, ability to raise revenue locally and reliance on central grants all differ substantially. Proposed and existing policies...

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend raises an important point. The NHS spends only about 5% of its funding on preventive measures. That just cannot be right. As she rightly says, social care costs will soar, and that makes no sense at all. The Government have announced that they will phase out the public health grant after 2020-21. Instead, they expect business rates retention to entirely fund public health...

Backbench Business: Local Government Funding — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Jan 2019)

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 14:34
Preet Kaur Gill: My hon. Friend makes a really important point. We need to invest more money in public health and not siphon it away from councils, for issues such as sexual health, drug and alcohol strategies, mental health—there are a number of issues, and I could go on. Does the Minister agree that preventive services and approaches are the most efficient and effective way to improve outcomes for our...

Leaving the EU: European Union (Withdrawal) Act (14 Jan 2019)

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 22:00
Preet Kaur Gill: In May, I gave a speech in this place calling on the Government to put aside their differences and their rigid ideologies, overcome their stubbornness and focus on what matters: a deal that works for people, families and businesses in the west midlands and across the country. It is clear that what this Government have put in front of us does not do that. This deal presents a threat to the...
