Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 12 - The person and his or her partner must not be in a relevant childcare scheme (21 October 2014)

Catherine McKinnell: ...the passing of this Act. (b) a statutory instrument containing an order under paragraph (a) shall be accompanied by a report which details— (i) a comparative analysis of the beneficiaries of top-up payments versus other relevant childcare schemes; (ii) what additional package of measures will be enacted to raise awareness and understanding of the comparative benefits of relevant...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 11 - Neither the person nor his or her partner may be claiming universal credit. (21 October 2014) See 6 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: Clause 11 sets out the sixth condition of eligibility, which is that the person and their partner, if they have one, cannot be claiming universal credit. The clause provides that when a person makes a declaration of eligibility under the scheme, they must not be due any award and must not have made a claim to receive universal credit that would be payable during the entitlement period. In...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 10 - The income of the person and his or her partner must not exceed limit (21 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

Catherine McKinnell: ..., and a lot of the evidence we received pointed to these questions being raised with and hopefully at least considered by the Government, if not responded to. We need to ensure that this additional tax expenditure achieves the maximum possible. The Government’s own stated aim is to ensure that it makes a difference to parents for whom, at the moment, it simply does not add up for...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 8 - The person must be in the UK (21 October 2014)

Priti Patel: The Bill provides a broad rule setting the territorial scope of the scheme by requiring those benefiting from it to be in the United Kingdom. That follows the same approach as for tax credits and universal credit, so regulations made under the clause will provide detail on exactly what that means, with some necessary explanation. The draft regulations that we have made available to members of...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 5 - Entitlement periods (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Lucy Powell: I beg to move amendment 3, in clause 5, page 5, line 2, at end insert— ‘(5) The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall, within 12 months of the opening of the first childcare account under section 17, undertake a review of the impact of the three month entitlement period under this section. (6) The report referred to in subsection (5) must in particular...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 1 - Entitlement to receive money towards costs of childcare (21 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: ...how families will be better off. I will touch on some of the specific points she raised about who will be better off, who will qualify and the financial support in the Government’s wider child care package. Clauses 6 to 13 set out a series of eligibility conditions; we will come on to look at those later. There are requirements on parents to: submit a declaration of eligibility to...

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...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 3 other results from this clause

...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...
