Recent appearances

  • New Member: Zero Hours Contracts Bill 21 Nov 2014

    The growth of zero-hours contracts, together with other practices such as the appearance of payroll companies and umbrella companies, and the growth of bogus self-employment, means that in certain sectors we are seeing the virtual abolition of permanent and full-time work.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Reserve Recruitment 17 Nov 2014

    After this expensive disaster, does the Minister have a shred of a regret about hacking away 20% of the Army’s strength, particularly given the fact that some regular soldiers served in Iraq, in Afghanistan and at the Olympics and were then told, “There’s your P45. Now sod off.”? What a disgraceful way to treat soldiers.
  • Written Answers — Department for Education: Mathematics 17 Nov 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many students on a 16 to 19 study programme and without a GCSE grade C or above in mathematics, did not study either a GCSE or an approved alternative qualification in mathematics in 2013-14.
