Consumer Rights Bill: Report (2nd Day) (24 November 2014)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...paid back to tenants nor passed on to landlords. Shirley Player was jailed for stealing 400,000 in this way. This is money that is not going into the housing market. It is depriving landlords of their income, and tenants of their security. Amendment 44 is supported by landlords as much as it is by tenants. It is backed by the National Landlords Association, the Royal Institute of...

Wales Bill — Third Reading (24 November 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Baroness Randerson: I wholeheartedly recognise that there is cross-party support but repeat that this is a government amendment to which three people added their names. It would have been in the hands of the noble Baroness to add her name if she had wanted to. Finally, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Morgan, for the way in which she has expressed her appreciation for our efforts here today. She made the point...

Divorce (Financial Provision) Bill [HL]: Committee (21 November 2014)

Baroness Deech: ...also to the question of whether Clause 6 stand part of the Bill. All these amendments, starting with this one, have at their heart the protection of children and assistance to middling and lower income families, who are facing terrible problems now that legal aid has been removed from assistance in divorce law, and with the exceedingly high number of divorces that we have every year. The...

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 November 2014)

Philip Davies: Does my right hon. Friend agree that those people who support the Bill would be supporting the removal of the cap on the amount of private income that hospitals can receive? Does he think that, when 38 Degrees was encouraging people to write in about the Bill, it made that clear to the people who signed its petition?

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Film (21 November 2014)

Philip Dunne: The Ministry Of Defence (MOD) can provide support to film or television projects on a case by case basis. Each proposal is considered as to whether: the subject is a Defence communications priority; our Duty of Care to personnel and their personal security; operational security; the likely communications effect of participation or non-participation and the return on investment of Defence...

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Fuel Poverty (21 November 2014)

Amber Rudd: The changes to ECO led to a ringfencing of support delivered to low income households up to 2015 and an extension of the overall scheme out to 2017. This additional support will take more people out of fuel poverty and improve the energy efficiency levels of all those who receive a measure. The Impact Assessment that quantified the effect of these changes showed that 10,000 fewer people would...

Written Answers — Department for Energy and Climate Change: Energy Companies Obligation (21 November 2014)

Amber Rudd: ...This includes allowing data that is used to deliver the Warm Home Discount to be used for targeting ECO.

Backbench Business: Devolution and the Union (20 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Michael McCann: ...about the constitutional decision made by the Scottish people, but I also remember the acrimony of the debate. I remember being abused every single day of the campaign by people who did not support my view. I know that families are divided and friendships have been broken and we must remember that that happens in constitutional debates. Frankly, the levels of intimidation were...

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Digital Impact — Motion to Take Note (20 November 2014)

Lord Farmer: ..., which were clearly identified in Bailey’s report, Letting Children be Children .

Backbench Business: Money Creation and Society (20 November 2014)

Andrea Leadsom: ...point in time. When a bank makes a loan, it does so in the expectation that the loan will be repaid in the future—households repay their mortgages out of their salaries; businesses repay their loans out of income from their investments. In other words, banks will not create new money unless they think that new value will also in due course be created, enabling that loan to be paid...

National Health Service and Care Sector Workers (Credit Union and High Cost Credit): Clause 144 — Amount of financial penalty for underpayment of national minimum wage (19 November 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Jo Swinson: Various issues affect the tax take and employment, not least the amounts that people are earning, For instance, if people are working for fewer hours, they will pay less income tax, because there will be more people within the tax threshold. That said, we are proud of the fact that we have raised the threshold. I campaigned hard for that in the last Parliament, and I am delighted that we have...

National Health Service and Care Sector Workers (Credit Union and High Cost Credit) (19 November 2014)

Gareth Thomas: ...or bank overdrafts. I should declare at the outset that I am a member of my local credit union, M for Money, and also the excellent Rainbow Saver credit union. For those who are in work and on a low income, debt is an ever constant fear. One major unexpected financial problem—perhaps the cost of a funeral or a relationship breakdown—can push people into financial difficulty and...

Brandon Lewis: ...with developing new housing. We have also recognised that some councils needed extra borrowing powers, so we have already announced 122 million of additional borrowing headroom for 22 authorities, to support the delivery of more homes in their areas. We have consulted on proposals to increase local transparency about the value of local authorities’ social housing assets. That...

Armed Forces (Investment) (18 November 2014)

Mark Francois: ...UK defence industry employs more than 160,000 people, with a turnover of some 22 billion. I turn now to naval bases. For generations, up and down the country, many communities have given outstanding support to our armed forces. That is particularly true for those around the Royal Navy’s three main naval bases at Devonport, Portsmouth and Clyde. Her Majesty’s naval base...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: New Clause 1 — Payment practices: retention of monies (18 November 2014)

Debbie Abrahams: ...is clear that it is one of the most raw forms of injustice. From the late payment inquiry held last year, it was clear to us that it is not just a micro-economic issue. With approximately half the work force and half the UK’s income in the private sector coming from small businesses—a massive 1,558 billion—it is inconceivable that late payment is not affecting the...

David Gauke: ...face unlimited care costs and should not be forced to sell their home in their lifetime to pay for care.

Public Bill Committee: Taxation of Pensions Bill: Schedule - Pension flexibility etc (18 November 2014)

Cathy Jamieson: ...will be reduced to 10,000. That has to be done within 31 days. The guidance sets out the possible penalties. We have had some comment in the written evidence to the Committee, in particular the Talbot and Muir evidence. Its head of technical support described the new rules as harsh and unworkable. Elsewhere, the technical resources manager of A J Bell went into more detail, analysing...

Jesse Norman: ...at the apprentice minimum wage, they will earn 81.90, on which they will not pay tax or national insurance, so the net effect of a 16-year-old’s going into an apprenticeship on minimum wage could be a drop in family income of just under 2 a week, or a little over 100 a year. How, then, do these young apprentices fare relative to someone who is in full-time...

Public Bill Committee: Taxation of Pensions Bill: Clause 1 - Provision for pension flexibility etc (18 November 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

David Gauke: ...on how people choose to use their pension savings. We do not expect it to be significant. The Office for Budget Responsibility’s latest projections, published in the 2014 fiscal sustainability report, assume no increase in income-related pensioner benefits as a result of people misjudging what to do with their pension savings. As for the related issue about capital held in drawdown...

Catherine McKinnell: ...only increase. Levels of child poverty have increased significantly under this Government, as the facts and evidence prove. Although we should focus on what the Bill will achieve—it will provide support in meeting demand for some payments for child care—my hon. Friend clearly sets out which parents will benefit most from the support. However, even those parents are concerned...
