Jobseeker’S Allowance (Sanctions) (18 December 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Esther McVey: ..., the Department decided that the information provided was wrong, inaccurate and misleading. The answer stated that it was important to focus on why there is a sanctions system. It is about making sure that people understand what is required of them, making sure that decisions are timely and correct, and protecting the most vulnerable. Fundamentally, sanctions cannot be seen in isolation....

Tom Brake: ...to anyone else. However, his most important subject was the one he raised at the end of his speech. It is a concern that he has raised repeatedly, and it relates to his local health service. I am sure that the Department of Health, his clinical commissioning group and the trust in his area will have heard his arguments loud and clear. The hon. Member for Harrow West (Mr Thomas), who is no...

Therese Coffey: ..., especially as we served together on the Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport. I thank the hon. Member for Nottingham South for her warm welcome and her—dare I say it?—little joke.

Nicholas Boles: ...It is extremely welcome that he takes on himself the role of initiating, leading, stimulating, chivvying and prodding local and national Government to get them to act in the interests of his constituents.

Mark Pawsey: ...the Chair of the Committee for his accurate representation of our report and pay tribute to him for the way in which he brought people together—Members and witnesses—throughout our inquiry?

Bill Presented: Lords Spiritual (Women) Bill (18 December 2014)

Eleanor Laing: ...rather than in electronic form. However, if any Member asks the Vote Office for a paper copy of a matter published on the Government website, the Vote Office ought to be able to provide one. I am quite sure that the Deputy Leader of the House has heard what the hon. Gentleman and I have said, and I would be very surprised if the Vote Office does not, in the very near future, take the hint...

Kris Hopkins: ...’s money so that users of services and people who may want to call upon that money can understand how much money has been spent historically in this area.

Public Bill Committee: Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: Clause 19 - Powers of British Transport Police Force (18 December 2014)

Tom Greatrex: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. Just briefly, I am following what he is saying and I am sure he will be aware that the cross-party Smith agreement included a recommendation for the British Transport police operating in Scotland to be subsumed within the national police force, Police Scotland. Given what the Minister just said about the way that the British Transport police...

Richard Burden: I am grateful to the Minister for his assurances, which sounded firm. I welcome that. I am sure that the unions will want to take him up on his offer of a meeting. We will want to see what is on the record, because at this time of the morning, even though it is not early, we do not always hear things correctly. Should such a meeting take place, we can return to these matters at other stages...

Public Bill Committee: Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: Clause 16 - Transfer of additional functions (18 December 2014)

John Hayes: .... Member for Hayes and Harlington raised concerns about that point; my written response is in the Library of the House. I think I have made this clear, but I will say one more time—although I am not sure I can guarantee that, so perhaps I should say “another time”—that there is no hidden agenda here. We are absolutely clear, and I think the Bill makes it crystal...

Stephen Barclay: ...million is owned by offshore companies. It is silent about the time scale on the overseas territories, other than pushing it back to the end of 2016. Finally, the Minister wrote a very good book—I am sure it is still available in all good bookshops—calling for much tougher sanctions against those in banks guilty of regulatory breaches. Why, when he proposed criminal sanctions...

Andy Burnham: ...lot of it has gone to shoring up balance sheets in acute trusts”. Is that true? Will the Secretary of State provide of full breakdown of how that money was allocated and has been spent to date? Were any conditions attached? I am sure he will claim the money has been used properly, but, if that is the case, why is the NHS already under so much pressure? Over the break, hon. Members...

Warwick (1,100TH Anniversary) (17 December 2014)

Chris White: ...closely together to celebrate the contribution that the university makes. It was good to join him in marking that anniversary a couple of weeks ago.

The group of jurors represent the best interests of...

Like many Government Members, we are absolutely able to relate to and represent the sort of community that he represents. I am sure we all share the horror and shock at the fact that many people need to go to food banks in the 21st century in one of the wealthiest countries in the world. We are united in our desire to...

Greyhound Welfare (17 December 2014)

George Eustice: ...be used.
