Baroness Northover: ...James Duddridge, whom the noble Lord will know, met the Malawian Minister of Foreign Affairs at the United Nations General Assembly recently. The United Kingdom remains one of Malawi’s major development partners but, as I said, is not routing that support through the Government. We continue to provide a large programme of support to reduce poverty and assist poor people across Malawi...

Young People: Alternatives to University — Motion to Take Note (23 October 2014)

Lord McFall of Alcluith: ...not going to university, damaging their self-esteem in the process. Compared with their contemporaries in full-time higher education, these young people in the vocational scheme had a lack of structured support and pastoral care. Consequently, the challenges facing them were considerable. They faced these challenges largely alone. The best advice matching their skills and abilities was...

Construction Industry — Motion to Take Note (23 October 2014)

Lord O'Neill of Clackmannan: ...; somebody was being assisted. More often than not the money was being recycled and more often that not it was old money, but there was always a token gesture made towards the construction industry. Frankly, however, the dribbling of support, which was the hallmark of successive Governments, has to be done in a more concerted, better thought-out way than we have seen recently. Certainly,...

Desmond Swayne: ...the World Bank to provide basic services to people. The achievements of the Afghanistan reconstruction trust fund include the delivery of some 9,321 miles of road, benefiting some 6 million people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Devolution of Fiscal Policy (22 October 2014)

Stephen Crabb: ...;s NATO summit was such a success for Wales? The Wales Bill devolves tax and borrowing powers to the Assembly and the Welsh Government, ensuring that they raise some of the money they spend. The new income tax powers are a tool to help the Welsh economy become more dynamic and make the Welsh Government more accountable. I call on the Labour party today to support holding a referendum as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Zero-hours Contracts (22 October 2014)

Nia Griffith: ...USDAW—the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers—on negotiating annualised contracts for workers with some big retail firms in Wales, giving both sides flexibility but also guaranteed income levels for workers?

Domestic Energy Efficiency (21 October 2014)

Amber Rudd: ...raised the matter with me previously, and I will get back to him. I do not want to try the patience of the hon. Member for Hyndburn, so let us move on to the ECO, which is the particular element of support that he has asked me to address. We have made changes to the ECO, and the vast majority of customers pay for the ECO as part of their energy bills. With bills rising, it was right to...

Priti Patel: Clause 13 sets out the final eligibility condition, which is that the person and their partner, if they have one, must not be receiving certain other forms of Government child care support on the date when they make a declaration of eligibility. I reassure Committee members that parents will remain eligible for support under the scheme if they access a free child care place as part of their...

Separated Families Initiative — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (21 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Kate Green: ...to the separation of parents and the financial arrangements that follow separation. The issue is perhaps too little in the public eye these days, which is in stark contrast to the 1990s, when child support issues dominated MPs’ postbags. I fear that the reason is not that the difficulties we saw in earlier years between parents have gone away, but that too many parents have given up...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 October 2014)

David Davis: ..., but I will give an example of someone who, in my view, was very badly treated. It was someone who was no friend of mine and, indeed, no friend of almost anyone in the House: Ken Livingstone. About a decade ago, he received income from a series of speaking engagements. He went to the Registrar of Members’ Financial Interests and asked how he should declare that income, and he then...

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 4 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: If I may, I would like to finish my point about the engagement and communication plans.

We have already touched on the evaluation scheme, which is an important part of that. It will be the appropriate time for a review. The scheme will have to...

Public Bill Committee: National Insurance Contributions Bill: Clause 5 - Categorisaton of earners etc: anti-avoidance (21 October 2014)

Shabana Mahmood: ...for many of the benefits available for employed earners, such as holiday and sickness pay. This year’s Finance Act amended legislation directly to address the issue in relation to the payment of income tax.

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 5 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: I reiterate my earlier point: the scheme is targeted at those on low incomes. As for supporting families on the higher incomes that the hon. Lady highlights, we took the decision to align the scheme with the established additional rate parameter, to make it simple and straightforward. It is about raising awareness of the scheme and making it simple when people access it, as well as not...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 9 - The person and his or her partner must be in qualifying paid work (21 October 2014)

Priti Patel: ...must be in qualifying work when they make their declaration of eligibility. The purpose of that condition is self-evident as the purpose of the scheme is to give parents, as we have discussed, the support they need to go out to work.
