Further Education Colleges (North-east) — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (26 Jan 2016)

Kevan Jones: ...—in the community. The system set up to deal with this is not only bureaucratic, but it has a detrimental effect on colleges such as Finchale.

The pathway for the people who need extra help into...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Report (1st Day) (25 Jan 2016)

Lord Wigley: ...a backward movement with regard to the employment of disabled people in many areas. We are seeing, for understandable reasons, the closure of some specific facilities that were available, such as Remploy and other similar organisations, where the argument was that disabled people would be employed within the mainstream and that, therefore, specific provisions did not need to be made in...

M4: Workless Households (13 Jan 2016)

Ian Lucas: Four years ago, my constituent Margaret Foster was sacked from Remploy by this Prime Minister. Yesterday, I raised her case in a debate. Today, I have been approached by local employers offering her work. Why are the Secretary of State and the Prime Minister presiding over a system to support disabled workers so useless that it takes a Member of Parliament raising the issue in Parliament for...

Access to Jobs: Disabled People (12 Jan 2016)

Justin Tomlinson: ...Gentleman in the course of his work on the all-party group on spinal cord injury. It was a real credit to him that he took time out of his busy schedule to come and engage on that.

Scottish Parliament: City Building and Royal Strathclyde Blindcraft Industries (2 Dec 2015)

James Dornan: the Scottish Government framework for supported businesses. The business combines commercial success with socially inclusive policies—50 per cent of the 260 employees have disabilities. Other employees come from closed former Remploy sites and others have armed forces backgrounds—six positions are ring fenced for returning disabled ex-servicemen and women. With 400...

Scottish Parliament: City Building (Glasgow) (12 Nov 2015)

Patricia Ferguson: You certainly can, Presiding Officer. Mr Kidd is absolutely right to focus on RSBI, particularly since the closure of the Remploy factory that was almost next door. Does the minister agree that, if Glasgow’s funding settlement was as it should be, Glasgow City Council would be able to do even more with City Building and make sure that that organisation employed even more apprentices in...

Ian Mearns: ...out—where an ingenious trade unionist or picket supervisor uses semaphore, Morse code by means of an Aldis lamp, invisible ink on best vellum, Native American smoke signals, or even, as I have witnessed on a Remploy picket line of GMB workers, British Sign Language. It may well be that “any means” is not appropriate; it will have to be a means that the appropriate...

Public Bill Committee: Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Clause 1 - Full employment: reporting obligation (15 Sep 2015)

Hannah Bardell: I commend the hon. Lady on a great speech. I agree with much of what she says. Remploy was one of the organisations that gave evidence.

The Scottish Government intervened and have now developed an...

Paula Sherriff: ...fewer days lost to sickness, happier staff and a lower staff turnover. It also meant that we had productive negotiations when an issue arose. And yes, I was proud to stand on the picket line with the Remploy workers who were shamefully abandoned by the previous Government, and with low-paid women workers fighting against downgrades. As a trade unionist, I knew that taking strike action was...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill (20 Jul 2015)

Debbie Abrahams: ...inquiry in this area of work last year and is still awaiting the Government’s response to its report. When will that be published?

The cuts in support to disabled people...

Women and Equalities: Access to Jobs (Disabled People) (2 Jul 2015)

Ian Lavery: During the last Parliament, the Government callously closed the Remploy factories, casting thousands of disabled people out of work.
