- Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Universal Credit (10 Dec 2013)
“I urge my right hon. Friend to reject the representations of Labour Members, who the whole House can see do not really believe in making work pay, and who long for universal credit to fail. Has he noticed that the write-offs are about one tenth of a per cent. of the £26 billion of taxpayers’ money wasted by the Opposition?”
- Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Office for Budget Responsibility (10 Dec 2013)
“Does my hon. Friend agree that, while we are all indebted to the shadow Chancellor for this idea and so much more, the OBR is working well and should not become a political football or controversial?”
- Business of the House: Autumn Statement (5 Dec 2013)
“May I welcome the investment in infrastructure, particularly flood defences? In east Kent in the next 24 hours, we face a difficult time and the investment in the flood defences in the town of Deal, which I represent, will help to keep the town more secure than it otherwise would have been.”
