Alex Maskey: ...bilateral meetings that I conducted, I led on behalf of Sinn Féin, with Mr Agnew along with other parties. The only commitment that Mr Agnew was able to make, to his credit, was to support a POC on the bedroom tax. That remains his position, and that is fair enough. At no other point in any of the bilateral meetings that I conducted with him and Mr Ross Brown did Mr Agnew feel able...

Mickey Brady: ...; it was quite happy to go with two years. I watched Mrs Kelly on 'The View' on Thursday week past, after the original debate. Mr Agnew quoted the Minister from Hansard. In relation to the so-called bedroom tax, the Minister said that there would have to be: "a significant change in their personal circumstances or they are offered suitable alternative accommodation." — [Official...

EU Council — Statement (23 February 2015)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: ...Syria. All of us have been horrified by the way that British teenagers appear to have been radicalised and duped by this poisonous ideology of Islamist extremism while at home on the internet in their bedrooms.

David Cameron: .... All of us have been horrified by the way that British teenagers appear to have been radicalised and duped by this poisonous ideology of Islamist extremism while at home on the internet in their bedrooms.

Royal Assent: Mental Health and Well-being of Londoners (12 February 2015)

Luciana Berger: ...mental illnesses twice as common in deprived parts of London as in the least deprived. We have heard today how Government policy can be a major factor, and the National Housing Federation estimates that one in seven households affected by the bedroom tax are now at risk of eviction. Given the cross-cutting nature of these challenges, I am keen to hear what steps the Minister is taking to...

As...

Deregulation Bill: Report (3rd Day) (11 February 2015)

Baroness Gardner of Parkes: ...8212;so it is quite a wide issue. It is interesting that the fraud teams are being brought in to look into the whole issue. I had a reply from the treasury officer when I asked him what of these lettings would be tax free. The answer was, “Nothing, except the right to sublet a room in your own house to a lodger for a sum of £4,000 and something—less than...

Dolores Kelly: ...on how they have a contribution to make in the mitigation of some of those impacts. For example, housing policy in Scotland has now committed, as a consequence of the impact and cost of the bedroom tax, to actually build much greater numbers of social housing. That is something that, I am sure, the Minister would look forward to doing if the Executive's Budget would allow it. A very...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Tax Avoidance (11 February 2015)

Helen Goodman: I am glad that the hon. Gentleman is now nodding his agreement. That is a way of moving money from high-tax jurisdictions to low-tax jurisdictions. Now, of course, these prices are not contested; they are not the result of supply and demand, but are administered just as much as prices in the Soviet Union were administered. Sometimes they are administered at suspiciously high levels, and as...

Housing (Horden, County Durham) (11 February 2015)

Grahame Morris: ...through replacing bathrooms, kitchens, windows, doors and heating systems as well as making other repairs, but millions of pounds of regeneration funding were withdrawn following the Government’s implementation of the bedroom tax.

Andy Slaughter: ...frozen charges for school meals and 138 other charges. We have abolished charges for home care for elderly and disabled people—we are only the second local authority in the country to do that. Last but not least on my list is that foster carers have been exempted from paying council tax, and we are, I think, the only council in London, and only one of eight in the country, to cut...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the 2014-15 Spring Supplementary Estimates (9 February 2015)

Christopher Hazzard: ...children, people with disabilities and those who are long-term sick. There are safeguards for those moving from disability living allowance (DLA) and for lone parents, and people will be comforted by the knowledge that the abhorrent bedroom tax will not be applicable here in the North. Those protections are unique to the North and are in sharp contrast to the cuts-driven onslaught in...

Jim Allister: ...in the rest of the United Kingdom? That is the point that I was making about the albatross that we are creating to put around our necks. I think there were sensible reforms to be made about the bedroom tax etc that had to be ameliorated, but what we now seem to have committed to and what I have issue with is a far more extensive and long-lasting commitment to keep topping up benefits at...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Employment in Wales (27 January 2015)

Owen Smith: ...the Labour party wins in May: a rise in the minimum wage, intervention in our markets to freeze consumer prices for people suffering under high energy bills and the backing of small business through a reduction in tax cuts to large corporations and an increase in benefit to smaller companies.

Yvonne Fovargue: In the Wigan borough, 3,386 people have had their housing benefit reduced due to the bedroom tax.

Many of those affected have contacted me because, despite working, they are struggling to pay bills and feed their family. What is the Secretary of State’s estimate of the average...

Local Government Finance Settlement — Motion to Take Note (22 January 2015)

Lord Beecham: ...Government's claims about spending power—an artificial construct designed to conceal the reality of what is happening—are utterly misleading. The Government claim a reduction in spending power of 1.8%. But that includes council tax income and the NHS element of the better care fund, which in fairness is a good policy, but which represents money that is not the councils’...
