Results 1-20 of 7,746 for income support

Written Answers — House of Lords: Royal Botanic Gardens Kew (20 October 2014)

Lord de Mauley: ...the Department for Culture, Media and Sport confirmed that this met UNESCO’s requirements. Kew, along with other parts of the Government, continues to keep the status of the site under review. Government support, coupled with Kew’s other income streams, enables Kew to exercise its duty of expert care over its historic assets, which are available as a resource for the nation,...

Social Justice Strategy — Motion to Take Note (16 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

The Bishop of Ely: ...us all is the poverty, both obvious and hidden, mostly in our rural communities and market towns. I am really excited by the strategy’s commitment to the transformation of lives as well as protecting people through welfare support. Such transformation comes not only through government policy, but through the commitment of communities that everyone may flourish. As a diocese, our...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

...to the draft regulations before they are made, prompted by comments and feedback from stakeholders. I am incredibly grateful to all those who have fed back to us. The first change is with regard to support for the self-employed. I would like to widen the scope of eligibility rules as they apply to self-employed parents. Doing so will ensure that individuals can qualify for the support when...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Police Recorded Crime Statistics (16 October 2014)

Nick Brown: .... That is about a third of cases, which tallies broadly with the results of HMIC’s sample. Each case has been reopened as a crime and will be reinvestigated by the review team, which will contact victims and work jointly with a local rape support group to ensure that proper support is in place for individuals. A new team of officers has been brought in to conduct this review and 48...

Cycling (16 October 2014)

Ian Austin: ...would make Britain healthier. Traffic delays in London cost 1.5 billion a year. An increase in cycling would tackle congestion and pollution, and would make our roads safer and our transport system more efficient. It would enable people on low incomes to travel more easily, would make our town and city centres more pleasant places, and would support local economies.

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

Dr Stewart: Yes, I think so. I guess I was saying that if you want to keep it really simple and flat rate, raise the percentage higher for everybody but have the cap lower, so that you get support only for the first x thousand pounds, where x is much lower than 10. I think you are saying a slightly more sophisticated thing, which is that you would have a higher percentage for people on lower...

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

Vidhya Alakeson: Our analysis shows that 80% of families that will benefit from tax-free child care are in the top 40% of the income distribution. The evidence on how parents respond to child care investment is reasonably limited, but we know from self-reported surveys that parents with a family income of more than about 60,000 a year are not predominantly making work decisions and...

Written Ministerial Statements — Transport: Commissioners of Irish Lights (16 October 2014)

John Hayes: ...provision of helicopter services to cover all three GLAs. The new contract will commence in December 2015 and will deliver significant savings of around 7.9 million to the GLF. Tri-GLA operations are supported by the UK and Irish Governments, but the shipping industry has expressed concern in recent years that the costs of the Commissioners of Irish Lights’ (CIL) operations in...

Energy: Onshore Wind Farming — Question for Short Debate (15 October 2014)

Baroness Quin: ...about these issues are the noble Lord, Lord Vinson, the noble Lord, Lord Shipley, and other Members of this House. In bringing forward this debate, I should like to stress that we have had strong support from the Northumberland section of the Campaign to Protect Rural England and the Northumberland and Newcastle Society—an organisation now in its 90th year and which has, throughout...

Public Sector Executive Pay and Governance (15 October 2014)

David Amess: ...GDP, we have one of the highest public spending levels in the world. We spend more on public services than Germany, Japan, Canada, the USA, Brazil, Russia, Australia, Switzerland, South Africa or Singapore. Whereas I wholeheartedly support our hard-working medical staff and our wonderful police officers, taxpayers’ money could be managed much more efficiently and fairly. Many aspects...

Wales Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (15 October 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Lord Wigley: ...in rural areas, where people are forced to spend significantly more on fuel than in urban areas. The Office for National Statistics recognises that poorer families in rural areas spend more of their income on petrol than richer families. Plaid Cymru has long pushed for a genuine fuel duty stabiliser to cap prices at the pump when prices rise above expectations. Amendment 50 provides the...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: National Minimum Wage (15 October 2014) See 8 other results from this debate

Jo Swinson: ...legislation. I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on his role, and I congratulate the previous Government on introducing it. Incidentally, it has been suggested in some quarters that the Liberal Democrats did not support the Bill. I would like to correct the record. Hansard shows clearly that Liberal Democrat MPs voted in favour, with not a single one voting against. Indeed, the Secretary of...

Antibiotic Resistance — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (15 October 2014)

Jane Ellison: ...resolution on AMR, which was co-sponsored by the UK, was a major step forward. It provided a mandate for the World Health Organisation to develop a global action plan to tackle AMR by 2015. We are actively contributing to support the delivery of that global action plan. The international nature of the problem was highlighted by many Members. India was mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Joint Ministerial Committee (15 October 2014)

David Mundell: I am very disappointed that the hon. Gentleman has not read the Conservative submission to the Smith commission, which clearly sets out, for example, our support for the devolution of 100% of income tax powers to the Scottish Parliament. I welcome the comment from the hon. Member for Glasgow East (Margaret Curran) that she is open to those discussions. We have made it clear that the...

[Martin Caton in the Chair] — Transport in the North-East (15 October 2014)

Gordon Marsden: ...but aspirational, career-building ones. In the north-east, in particular, those benefits are valuable to the more vulnerable in society, who have few other means of getting around: young people, people on low incomes or those who do not want to or cannot afford to get snagged up in environmentally unfriendly congestion. Too often, government works in silos, and too often, this Government...

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

John Redwood: .... I also urge them to be generous. I think we want to have the right spirit for this negotiation, and I disagree with the former Prime Minister: I think that Scotland should have full powers over income tax, and I think that the more fiscal devolution there is, the better. I think it makes a lot of sense for whoever is responsible for spending the money to be responsible for raising it as...

Leominster Enterprise Park (14 October 2014)

Jesse Norman: ...multiples. Although he struggled on, unfortunately he found himself having to place the company in liquidation, after trading successfully for 26 years. The rest of his business was unable to support the borrowing he had incurred to meet the orders that he had lost. Fortunately, from Mr Hardy’s point of view, there was another well-established and well-resourced business that was...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses - Sam Royston and Alison Garnham gave evidence. (14 October 2014) See 6 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...

Foetal Alcohol Syndrome — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (14 October 2014)

Luciana Berger: ...Concern and Drink Wise North West, which has engaged with me in my role as a constituency MP. We have also heard a lot about the former Children’s Commissioner, Sir Al Aynsley-Green, who is the incoming president of the BMA, and Lord Parry Mitchell, who have both done significant work on raising awareness of the issue. I recently had the privilege of joining a conference organised by...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 6 other results from this clause

...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 various systems further complicates that. In...
