Welfare — Statement (21 Mar 2016)

Baroness Manzoor: ...wrong with the way the welfare reforms have been tackled and are to be implemented.

We on these Benches want to ensure that government...

Alison McGovern: ...Nottingham East (Chris Leslie) said earlier that these were heroic assumptions, and they are, because 60% of the surplus the Government say that they can get comes from just changing the timing of corporation tax arrangements.

Financial Statement (16 Mar 2016)

George Osborne: Both those major tax cuts will be backdated so that they are effective from 1 January this year and my hon.

International Women’s Day 2016 (8 Mar 2016)

Angela Crawley: .... I have called on the Prime Minister to take five key actions for International Women’s Day. First, the rape clause in the Welfare Reform and Work Bill must be scrapped.

Friend the Member for...
