Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Work and Pensions: Housing Costs (Reformed Welfare System) (3 March 2015)

Anne Begg: ...and the welfare system, but perhaps the most controversial was “social sector size criteria”. We called it that to try to make it sound more neutral; any other form of words can be emotive, because it is called the bedroom tax, the removal of the spare room subsidy or the under-occupancy penalty, depending on one’s political view. However, it is the charge that has meant...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Estimates 2014-15 — Department for Communities and Local Government: Devolution in England (2 March 2015)

Simon Danczuk: ...not accompanied by control of the purse strings. I have two young children. Often it is fun to let them make decisions about where we should go or what we should do, but I would never dream of giving them my credit card, because that is where the real power lies. For too long, central Government have treated local government as a wayward child—happy to devolve some powers, but never...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Care Costs: Disabled Children (2 March 2015)

Sam Gyimah: This Government have introduced the biggest reforms to special educational needs and disabilities provisions in 30 years, reforms that enjoy cross-party support. Every disabled child, like all other three and four-year-olds, is entitled to a free 15 hours of early education, and the situation is the same for disadvantaged two-year-olds. In addition, when tax-free child care is introduced,...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 February 2015)

Charlie Elphicke: ...the failure to police risk, was at the heart of what went wrong with our banking system, so I completely reject the hon. Gentleman’s point. The Opposition say, “Let’s have a bankers’ bonus tax, so we can raise some money.” Yet again, we have heard that the Opposition want to spend it, this time on “a guaranteed paid starter job for young people who have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 February 2015) See 7 other results from this debate

Mickey Brady: ...to the north-west disability forum. I said — if you had been listening, you probably would have heard it — that anyone on benefits under our control will not be worse off. We do not control tax credits or child benefit; HMRC does. With respect, if you are going to quote me, try to be accurate, please.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (16 February 2015)

Phil Flanagan: .... It must be remembered that all that has been agreed against the backdrop of an austerity agenda from Westminster. We want to build a society that protects our environment and promotes the life chances of every child, young person and adult in the North to ensure that they have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and develop their talents. Few, if any, countries in the world...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Compulsory Jobs Guarantee (11 February 2015)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...1.54 billion for the over-25s and a further 540 million for the under-25s, so over 2 billion in total for only one year. To pay for it, the Opposition have proposed two measures. First, they would restrict pensions tax relief for earnings over 150,000. Let us deal with that first. They originally committed that funding for the purpose of increasing working and child...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Consideration Stage (11 February 2015) See 3 other results from this debate

Alex Maskey: ...'s views. Some of the comments that were made reflect the Committee's concerns about clause 10 when we considered it two years ago. The Committee, for example, had a particular concern about the child tax credit being reduced from 57 per week to 28 per week, which would impact on families with a disabled child. Of course, as we know, the Stormont House Agreement has made new...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Consideration Stage (10 February 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Mickey Brady: No, the Member will not give way. The bedroom tax has been neutralised and will continue to be neutralised, so that is a good thing for those vulnerable people whom we have all been talking about today. I will move on to the discretionary payments in clauses 51 and 52. Basically, the social fund has been abolished in Britain and has gone to local authorities, some of which service it in a...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits (10 February 2015)

Helen Goodman: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many people who are affected by the benefit cap are in receipt of (a) bereavement allowance, (b) carer's allowance, (c) child benefit, (d) child tax credit, (e) employment and support allowance, except where the support component has been awarded, (f) guardian's allowance, (g) housing benefit, (h) incapacity benefit, (i) income support,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Social Security and Pensions (Statutory Instruments) (9 February 2015)

Stephen Timms: ...surprising, especially in light of the fact that Ministers keep on telling us about their generosity towards pensioners. As well as the state pension, the order contains uprating details for universal credit. Those are currently largely of academic interest, because so few people are in receipt of universal credit. The Government announced in November 2011 that a million people would be...

Public Bill Committee: Corporation Tax (Northern Ireland) Bill: Clause 1 - Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (5 February 2015)

Mark Durkan: ...said about hazards, and I am certainly cognisant of those. However, I have some difficulty in understanding exactly what he means when he says words to the effect that the Northern Ireland credit unions would neither be in the devolved rate nor out of it. It is not specified in the Bill, and my amendment was trying to get some clarity. Notwithstanding the points made about credit unions...

Universal Credit — Question for Short Debate (4 February 2015)

Lord German: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who are going to speak in this debate, as this is an issue of great importance to the well-being of many children in our country, and I am grateful for the interest shown. This matter came to its head in your Lordships’ House during the passage of the Pensions Act 2014. The issue being debated then was the universal credit regime covering those who are...

UK Poverty — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (4 February 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Eilidh Whiteford: ...austerity in the six years to 2016 is estimated at about 6 billion in Scotland alone—three quarters of which has come from the pockets of women. That has had a disproportionate impact on families with children and people with disabilities and health problems. Indeed, one of the Government’s flagship austerity measures, the bedroom tax, has fallen disproportionately on...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Families (4 February 2015)

David Laws: We look with interest at all relevant research. This Government has taken a range of actions to help improve the prospects of families with children, including those under five years of age. Work is the best route out of poverty – and under this Government employment has increased by more than 1.75 million. Further, this Government’s reforms to the welfare system...

Commonwealth Immigration and Visas — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (27 January 2015)

David Hanson: ...8212;here the hon. Gentleman and I may part company—that we are part of the European Union and part of free movement within the European Union. Although we can apply certain restrictions on benefits such as child benefit and working tax credits, we still have free movement, which allows Britons to work and live in France and Germany, and allows Poles, Italians and others to work in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Tax Credits and Employment (27 January 2015)

Priti Patel: Let us put this into some context. For a start, tax credit spending rocketed under the previous Government and throughout this Parliament we have made it abundantly clear that we support those with low incomes. Let us not forget either that the impact of Labour’s great recession is still being felt. We continue to help people with the cost of living through the increases in personal...
