Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Families: Disadvantaged 28 Jul 2015

    To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, in how many and what proportion of families supported by the Troubled Families Programme have unemployed family members entered employment.
  • Written Answers — HM Treasury: Child Tax Credit 21 Jul 2015

    To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether families with disabled children born after 6 April 2017 will continue to receive both the child element of child tax credit and the new disability element on account of that child, irrespective of how many other children are in the household.
  • Welfare Reform and Work Bill 20 Jul 2015

    I wonder whether the hon. Gentleman has reflected on the fact that in 1997 the employment rate among lone parents was less than 45%, whereas today it is getting on for 65%. Those who have looked at the matter have confirmed that that dramatic improvement is largely thanks to the additional incentive from tax credits.
