Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 3 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: The core purpose of the Bill is obviously to provide support to working families with child care costs. I do not think we should just look at projections—I hear what you say about research and what the Resolution Foundation has said, but we cannot just look at it in terms of one particular part of the population. We are still providing funding through universal...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witness (16 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Dr Stewart: Yes. Some evidence that we have seen, certainly for the UK, suggests that as you see the working tax credit become more generous, you see the fees going up. I have not seen any robust evidence,  because it is difficult to do because you have no counterfactual about what would have happened to the child care fees. There are more studies in Australia, but they certainly...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 7 other results from this clause

Vidhya Alakeson: We acknowledge that there are some improvements in the Bill through the creation of tax-free child care compared with the current employer-supported voucher, the fact that it is not related to what your employer chooses to do but is available to all parents, and the fact that is available to the self-employed. We have three areas of concern. One is a very broad concern and...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

...Mann: Absolutely—sorry. Removing that link means that all the employee has is an online account and whatever online guidance they can access to help them through the myriad complexities that are child care benefits. It has to be said at this point that our specialism is not the benefits available to working parents. However, I believe from hearing anecdotally from experts that it is...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: National Minimum Wage (15 October 2014)

Richard Fuller: ...prescriptions from both sides of the House are too limited to meet the challenges that the economy faces. The first reason is that we are living through an era of massive corporate welfare. Vast sums of taxpayers’ money are funnelled into our private sector—or so-called private sector—companies year in, year out. One of the most substantial amounts of corporate welfare...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses - Sam Royston and Alison Garnham gave evidence. (14 October 2014) See 14 other results from this clause

Sam Royston: Sure. The first thing to say is that we welcome any additional support with child care costs to help families ensure that work pays. We have three principal concerns about tax-free child care. The first is the balance of support with child care costs and additional money found for helping families with child care costs. We are slightly concerned, as an organisation that works...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 10 other results from this clause

Sam Royston: Like the other witnesses, we welcome the extra spending on child care. It is important. Our particular concern is about the interaction, and I know that you have just heard about that. We are very concerned about it. Any change in income or circumstances will change whether someone is better off on tax credits, tax-free child care or universal credit. Lack of parity between the...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

...is additional help. Where an amount of money has to be spread very thinly, I am sorry that it is not absolutely focused on the poorest families; it is a shame that we have gone above basic rate taxpayers on this. I am very anxious about the loss of the employer link, which I would be happy to talk about later. Although Anne said that it is simple, I think it is simple if you qualify, but...

Bill Presented: Carers Bedroom Entitlement (Social Housing Sector) (14 October 2014)

Barbara Keeley: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to provide that people in receipt of Universal Credit and Housing Benefit and accommodated in the social housing sector be entitled to an additional bedroom related to caring responsibilities or overnight care; and for connected purposes. The Bill would exempt households with one additional room from the bedroom tax if a member of the...

...afford to make any losses. There are roughly 200,000 places available across the country, but as I said, it depends very much on location. The fundamental issue is that we are trying to tackle child care issues in so many different ways. We have child care tax credits, employer-supported vouchers, pre-nursery education funding—we have so many things. The long-term view from a policy...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Jobs: Londonderry (6 October 2014)

Martin McGuinness: ...result of last week's Conservative party conference, is all to do with the development of Sinn Féin in the South.  That is like saying that we do not care about our neighbours or increased levels of child poverty or low-paid workers whose tax credits are being threatened.  Of course, we could get into the politics of "whataboutery".  People talk about it costing...

Adult Learning — [John Robertson in the Chair] (3 September 2014)

Meg Hillier: ...a big achievement for him and, critically, they enabled him to progress in his chosen career rather than be condemned to a limited choice of low wage, unskilled jobs. That is the nub of the issue. I also met a young woman, who is a mother of a young child, who similarly had not enjoyed maths at school, but, as she was training to be a chef, she could see the point in it. Again, she had...

Scottish Parliament: Increasing Opportunities for Women (20 August 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Angela Constance: ...and unlock our potential, we have a position in Scotland today in which too many households struggle to meet their bills as wages are eroded and the cost of living increases. Around half of working-age adults and more than half of children in poverty live in working households and, despite the UK Government’s stated commitment to support families, women are disproportionately...

Scottish Parliament: Welfare (13 August 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Nicola Sturgeon: ...path with independence. As people consider that choice that will be before them on 18 September, they should do so in the knowledge that further Westminster cuts are still to come—cuts that will impact most on women, children and the disabled. As people consider that choice, I am confident that the policies that we have outlined and the vision that we put forward will encourage them...

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Lords: Taxation: Childcare (29 July 2014)

Lord Deighton: The Government has today published ‘Tax-Free Childcare: the government’s response to the consultation on childcare account provision’ – a response to the further consultation on the delivery of childcare accounts within the Tax-Free Childcare scheme. The document is available at www.gov.uk/government/consultations/tax-free-childcare-consu...

Women: Equality and Advancement — Question for Short Debate (22 July 2014)

Baroness Thornton: .... The document that resulted, for example, makes specific references to uphold women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights; there was an agreement to eliminate harmful practices, including child marriage and female genital mutilation, which, significantly, would in future not be referred to as “cutting”. There were also explicit references made to a woman’s...

Child Benefit Entitlement (Disqualification of Non-UK EU Nationals) (22 July 2014)

Philip Hollobone: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to disqualify non-UK citizens from the European Union from entitlement to child benefit; and for connected purposes. Mr Speaker, may I first thank you for giving me permission to move the motion? The purpose of the Bill, were it granted by the House, would be to end the absurd anomaly whereby any EU national can come to this country to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Child Care (21 July 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Nicky Morgan: I thank the hon. Gentleman very much for his kind sentiments. He will know that the National Day Nurseries Association published research last year showing that the cost of child care had stabilised and was starting to come down. I am sure that he would therefore support our proposals for tax-free child care, which would allow parents to build up credit in accounts, which they could then...

Written Answers — Treasury: Child Tax Credit (17 July 2014)
