My speech to protect leaseholders in the Building Safety Bill, outlining the changes we need and some of the amendments we will be tabling tonight.

I will be speaking in Building Safety Bill debate today and urging Ministers to protect leaseholders from historic fire safety costs. Millions are screaming and breaking under huge interim and remediation costs. We have to hear them, we have to help them @ukcag @EOCS_Official— Stephen McPartland (@SMcPartland) July 21, 2021
Charlize Church contacted her MP Stephen McPartland to ask for his help to raise awareness of the effect of the lockdowns on school children and problems with littering in public spaces.
Stephen McPartland said, "It was wonderful to meet Charlize and Rainbow Dash. Topics ranged from the impact on COVID of family overseas visiting her across to how we can all do more every day to support the more isolated members of our community.
"Like me, Charlize is passionate about keeping our town tidy and wants more bins, emptied more often and used more mindfully by us all. Whether it is disposing of a used mask or a still-smoking cigarette that can blow off the top of a bin and hurt Rainbow Dash.
"I was very impressed and will be taking some of her ideas up locally and nationally. I look forward to inviting her to Parliament for an update when we are allowed visitors again."
Charlize added, "It was fun talking to Stephen, he was nice. I hope one day we will enjoy smoke-free streets in town centres and big parks in England."
Delighted to be working with @Royston_Smith @ukcag @EOCS_Official & many others as we ask the Govt to use the Building Safety Bill to protect leaseholders from the eye watering costs of historic fire safety defects. We want to work with Govt to end this building safety scandal.— Stephen McPartland (@SMcPartland) July 15, 2021
Stevenage MP, Stephen McPartland, was bowled over when he visited his local Hollywood Bowl after the centre reopened. The Hollywood Bowl Stevenage team has worked to ensure that the centre is able to welcome back family and friends to ‘Have Fun and Play Safe’, and invited the Stevenage MP to check out its newly installed lane dividers, which allow guests to feel secure in their own private space when bowling.
Stephen McPartland Member of Parliament for Stevenage said, “I was delighted to have been invited by the team to visit Hollywood Bowl in Stevenage. The past 15 months has been incredibly difficult for businesses who have been forced to close their doors on several occasions and for long periods of time. The Hollywood Bowl team has worked diligently to ensure they’re able to open in a Covid secure way and I wouldn’t have any hesitancy in encouraging my constituents to visit the centre.”
Darryl Lewis, Chief Operating Officer at Hollywood Bowl Group said, “It was our pleasure to welcome Stephen McPartland MP to Hollywood Bowl Stevenage, to give him a guided tour of the centre and talk him through our health and safety measures. It’s great to have his support and we look forward to welcoming Stevenage locals back through our doors over the coming months.”
Hollywood Bowl Stevenage underwent a £400,000 refurbishment over lockdown and is now a latest generation Hollywood Bowl with an update to its amusements, bar and at the lanes. It is proud to have a ‘Book without worry’ guarantee in place, offering refunds or amendments should bookings need to be changed due to Government guidelines. Each lane in the centre also has its own distinctive bowling balls with no two adjacent lanes the same which helps to mitigate the risk of touching a ball that another group has used. The centre team are also continuing with the extra Covid safety measures, including cleaning the balls, touch screens and seating areas after each customer group.
