Recent appearances

  • Jobseeker’S Allowance (Sanctions) 18 Dec 2014

    The responsibility to answer a question lies with the Minister. The right hon. Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms) has been tenacious in holding the Minister to account. That is the role of Members: to hold Ministers and Departments to account. I am sure that that will continue if he does not get the answer today.
  • Jobseeker’S Allowance (Sanctions) 18 Dec 2014

    What we need to do is to get to the end of the debate. The point is well made and it has been taken on board.
  • Jobseeker’S Allowance (Sanctions) 18 Dec 2014

    Order. [Interruption.] Order, everybody! Let us have a little bit of Christmas spirit. The Minister must give way when there is a point of order.
