Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (23 April 2014)

Mary Fee: No—I have a lot to get through, so I will carry on. If I have time later, I will let the member in. Rhoda Grant rightly raised the issue of rural fuel poverty, which is worse than urban fuel poverty, as was highlighted in the recent debate on renewable heat. We need to find ways in which people in rural and isolated groups of houses can work together to develop community energy schemes...

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (23 April 2014)

Cara Hilton: ...but whether they have enough money in their pockets from one week to the next. For the average family, wages are down, tax credits have been cut and child benefit has been frozen while food prices, fuel bills and childcare costs continue to soar. The cost of living crisis is not a soundbite but a daily reality. For many, the opportunities that they had hoped their children would have seem...

Public Administration Select Committee: Backbench Business — Easter Adjournment (10 April 2014)

Jim Shannon: ...the road being set aside for cyclists. I welcome the fact that there are some good things happening in my constituency, but they are not happening everywhere. That leaves people reliant on their cars, and the increases in fuel prices have hit these isolated areas hard. We are rightly urging people to get into work, and trying to encourage mothers to work even part time, but for anyone who...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Part 2 — Devolution of Wales long haul rates of duty (9 April 2014)

Henry Smith: ...remarks are brief this evening. I congratulate the Government on a Budget that is good for business and good for individuals, with the income tax threshold being raised, corporation tax being lowered, fuel duty being frozen and the simplification of APD. I put in a bid once again for the abolition of APD in the future, but I recognise that it is only this Government who are tackling our...

Convergence Programme — Motion to Approve (9 April 2014)

Lord Newby: ...However, I remind him that the Government have taken a wide range of steps to mitigate that fall. Of course, the increase in the income tax allowance to 10,000 is the single most significant one, but I also remind him of the freeze on fuel duty. On jobs, I remind him of the 2,000 national insurance allowance, which will make it easier for small businesses, in particular, to...

Therese Coffey: ...has been said, this is about choices. The choices this Government made in this Budget were to reduce income inequality to its lowest level in 28 years, whether through council tax cuts, or through freezing or cutting fuel duty, as we have done in previous Budgets. This Government are certainly helping families of all models in this Budget. We debated child care yesterday, and it is right...

Rural Crime — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] (9 April 2014)

Gordon Henderson: ...appropriate and compatible with surrounding land use. I have touched on fly-grazing because, again, it is a rural crime. However, there are many other rural crimes that cause problems for farmers, such as fuel theft, metal theft, vandalism, trespassing, arson, criminal damage, fly-tipping, illegal Traveller sites and illegal raves. There are too many and they are too varied to mention in...

The shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury talked about the fuel duty cut being a theoretical...

We have cut costs for small businesses by delivering the longest fuel duty freeze for 20 years and through the 7.1 billion package announced in the Budget to reduce energy costs for businesses and households. It is worth...

Business of the House (3 April 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Andrew Lansley: ...that one of the consequences of this Government’s policies is that the income tax-free personal allowance is going up to 10,000. That will take another 200,000 people out of paying tax altogether, and be worth 705 to some people. Fuel duty is now frozen again, and is 20p per litre lower than it would have been under the previous Labour Government’s escalator plans....

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Energy Price Freeze (2 April 2014)

John Robertson: ...public, because the freeze will have been imposed by the Government of the day, which I hope will be a Labour Government. The most important thing is to look after the people in this country who are living in fuel poverty. In Scotland, 1 million people classify themselves as fuel poor. When we add that to the figure for England, it takes us well above the 2.4 million figure that we had...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Cost of Living (2 April 2014)

Andrew Robathan: .... Following the Budget, 685,000 people in Northern Ireland will have benefited from the personal allowance changes since 2010.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 April 2014)

Greg Mulholland: The Chancellor’s cut in beer duty is great news for Britain’s brewers, as it will allow them to invest, but it will do nothing to help the 20,000 pubs tied to large companies. He has got rid of the fuel duty escalator, the beer duty escalator and the alcohol duty escalator; will the Government now tackle the pubco problem by getting rid of the pubco price escalator?

Bill Presented: Finance (No. 2) Bill (1 April 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Jim Shannon: ...changes in that regard. I commend the Government for their pension changes. The hon. Member for North East Somerset (Jacob Rees-Mogg) mentioned corporation tax. Although there is a commitment on air passenger duty, it is not enough and does not address the considerable difficulties we have in Northern Ireland because of the land border that people can drive across. Air passenger duty in...

National Minimum Wage — Question (1 April 2014)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: My noble friend makes a very good point: raising the tax threshold has been extremely important in helping the low paid. The Government are taking other measures, including on fuel duty, which remains frozen. The House should realise that wages in the private sector are now outstripping inflation and the OBR has predicted that that will continue until 2018. Indeed, current wage growth in the...

Bill Presented: Wales Bill (31 March 2014)

Mark Harper: ...lack of trust in the Treasury led by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor, whose excellent recent Budget cut taxes for those on modest incomes. The Labour party voted against those—against the fuel duty cut and the tax cuts for modest earners. I find that surprising.

Backbench Business: High Court Judgment (John Downey) (27 March 2014)

Laurence Robertson: ...because an urgent question does not allow the House full discussion. Since 2010 the Select Committee has tended to concentrate on economic issues. We have looked at corporation tax, air passenger duty, fuel laundering and smuggling and the amounts of money being lost. We have touched on the armed forces covenant, and we are coming to the end of an inquiry into the structure of banking in...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (27 March 2014)

Lord Deighton: ...throughout our time in office, this Government have taken huge steps to make sure that our policies impact households fairly across the UK.

Fuel duty has been frozen until the end of Parliament; we have...
