Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 30 - Power to provide for automatic termination of universal credit (23 October 2014)

Catherine McKinnell: The clause makes the same provisions as set out in clause 29, but with respect to universal credit rather than tax credits. We appreciate that universal credit has some way to go before it is rolled out beyond its current pilot areas, but the clause allows for regulations to provide for the automatic termination of a person’s universal credit award, or that of their partner, where that...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 29 - Termination of tax credit awards (23 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

Alex Cunningham: The core purpose of this group of amendments is to broaden the provisions of the Bill to allow households in receipt of tax credits, but not receiving any support whatever for their child care costs in their tax credit award, to receive support from the tax-free child care scheme. Achieving that goal would entail several minor changes to the clauses dealing with the special rules affecting...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 15 - Childcare accounts (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Priti Patel: ...stakeholders on the design. That is incredibly important. We do not want parents to feel that they have done something wrong; on the contrary, it is a positive mechanism to provide financial support for child care for their children. We are clear about that, and it is worth concentrating on the terminology and language we use here. It is about being positive and open. Having one login and...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 14 - Qualifying child (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Alex Cunningham: I beg to move amendment 17, in clause 14, page 8, line 36, at end insert— ‘( ) A child is a qualifying child for the purposes of this Act until the last day of the week in which falls the 1 September following the child’s 11th birthday (or 18th birthday in the case of a disabled child).’ It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship,...

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...
