Hello, I'm Beth!
I am proud to be Labour's Candidate for Corby and East Northamptonshire, fighting for the community I call home.
GE2019 New Build Regulation
Over the past few months, I’ve become aware of some issues with existing property law and rights of those who buy new builds 🏠. Issues in both Priors Hall and Little Stanion have made clear to me we need reforms.
Having met with residents in both areas, I’ve got a few ideas of how the issues can be addressed (none of these are an instant fix but they would help). If I were your MP, I’d hit the ground running by:
✅Submitting Written Parliamentary Questions on the issue to achieve wider recognition of the problem and build a better understanding of the national scale of the problem;
✅Holding a backbench debate on proper regulation of developers: this would be with the intention of putting pressure on the government (whoever wins on 12th December) to take legislative action;
✅ Seeking to agree some text with the Table Office in Parliament and attaching this to any relevant government bill in a future Queen's speech; and
✅ If Labour form the next government, set up a meeting with the Housing Minister, John Healey MP, local residents and developers so that the Minister could hear the issues directly and - hopefully - be motivated to take formal action.
Please share with anyone you think might be affected by these issues.
I hope you can vote for me on 12th December so we can hit the ground running and you can have an MP on your side, fighting our case in Westminster.
