Recent appearances

  • Separated Families Initiative — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] 21 Oct 2014

    I am quite disturbed to hear of that experience, because it sounds very much like the criticisms we made of the previous Child Support Agency. Often, the non-resident parent was chased for extra money without having gone through an understandable reassessment. That is quite concerning, because the whole point of the new system was to sort cases out long before they got to the CMS itself.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Individual Electoral Registration 14 Oct 2014

    I have concerns about people missing from the register, but I am also concerned about extra people on it. What obligations will there be on EROs to ensure that those on the register are real people? Concomitantly, does that mean that people will have to prove their identity when they vote?
  • Written Answers — Work and Pensions: Terminal Illnesses: Scotland 11 Sep 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many people in Scotland have had DWP form DS1500 signed by their doctor to confirm they are terminally ill in the latest period for which figures are available.
