Health — Motion to Take Note (26 Nov 2015)

Baroness Walmsley: ...mother. Academics believe that UK children are at a higher risk of premature death than their western European counterparts because of the growing gap between rich and poor and a lack of targeted public health policies. But if a child is born into a low-income family, he is not automatically on a pathway to ill health, as several imaginative interventions have already shown. A new,...

Royal Agricultural University (Funding) (26 Nov 2015)

Nicholas Boles: ...who will share stories of what they learned when they were at the Royal Agricultural University. My hon. Friend is, therefore, absolutely right to say that this is an institution that deserves the full support of everyone in Government who is involved in supporting higher education. My hon. Friend also knows, however, that one of the key ingredients in the creation of a university sector...

Business of the House (26 Nov 2015)

Chris Grayling: .... Regarding tax credits and universal credit, I simply remind the hon. Gentleman that the move from the national minimum wage to the national living wage will, for Scots as well, deliver by 2020 an increase in income of almost 5,000. That, I believe, will make a fundamental difference to people on low incomes and is something we should all welcome. It will transform the lives of many...

Syria: Foreign Affairs Committee Report — Statement (26 Nov 2015)

Lord King of Bridgwater: ...had any dealings with tackling the challenges of terrorism know that at the back of it all is money. What I welcome in the allies’ recent efforts is the attack on the oil supplies—the source of income. There is no doubt that ISIL has been very well funded up to now. Resources; weapons production; weapons support, enabling its people to travel round and cause terrorist outrages...

Women and Equalities: Syria (26 Nov 2015)

David Cameron: ..., the RAF can carry out what is called “dynamic targeting”, whereby our pilots can strike the most difficult targets at rapid pace and with extraordinary precision, and provide vital battle-winning close air support to local forces on the ground. We have the Brimstone precision missile system, which enables us to strike accurately, with minimal collateral damage—something...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Public Finances (Update) (26 Nov 2015)

John Swinney: ...on three specific decisions in the chancellor’s statement. First, the decision to scrap the proposed changes to tax credits was a welcome change of direction. The proposed cuts were targeted at working families on low incomes and would have affected around 250,000 households in Scotland. That is a victory for those who campaigned against those cuts, and it highlights the importance...

Scottish Parliament: Women and Social Security (26 Nov 2015)

Clare Adamson: ...that 26 billion-worth of cuts have been made to benefits, tax credits and pay and pensions since 2010. According to the House of Commons library, 85 per cent of the 26 billion has been taken from women’s incomes. The committee heard that one of the reasons for that disproportionate impact is existing systemic inequality for women, which has been aggravated by the recent...

Royal Assent: Childcare Bill [Lords] (25 Nov 2015)

Sam Gyimah: The eligibility will be checked by HMRC, and it will be based on the actual income earned, so at 16 hours on the national living wage, someone would have to earn 107 a week in order to qualify for 30 hours of free childcare. In addition to the 30 hours of free childcare, that person may get other support such as the childcare element of tax credits or tax-free childcare. This is an...

Spending Review and Autumn Statement — Statement (25 Nov 2015)

Lord O'Neill of Gatley: ..., and to protect our national security by defending our country’s interests abroad and keeping our citizens safe at home. Economic and national security provide the foundations for everything we want to support: opportunity for all, the aspirations of families and the strong country we want to build. Five years ago, when I presented our first spending review, our economy was in...

UK Musicians Performing Overseas — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (25 Nov 2015)

Patrick Grady: ..., during the October recess. The event was organised by UK Music and designed to encourage students, and others starting out in the music industry, in their careers as artists or in backstage and support roles. The location was very appropriate, because the University of Glasgow plays an important role in nurturing talent, and in teaching skills for music careers; but also because the west...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Spending Review and Autumn Statement (25 Nov 2015)

John Martin McDonnell: ...;posh boys”. I disagreed with that strongly. People do not choose the class that they are born into, or the wealth that they inherit. Nevertheless, if people are fortunate enough to have wealth or good incomes, like all Members of Parliament, the onus is on them—on us—to take particular care when making decisions about the lives of those who are less fortunate than...

[Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] — Clean Energy Investment (25 Nov 2015)

Caroline Flint: ...required, but the Government’s actions cannot be justified only on those terms. The decision to charge renewable generators the climate change levy was a grab by the Treasury, pure and simple. Business plans that relied on that income have had to be ripped up. Drax lost a third of its share value in one day following the announcement, and as a result it and Infinis have launched...

Scottish Parliament: Clyde and Hebrides Ferry Services (25 Nov 2015)

Dave Thompson: ...of this debate to fellow trade unionists, many of whom are watching this debate from the public gallery. I believe in the preservation of publicly owned ferry services, and our SNP Government also supports that. I want CalMac to succeed. Credit must also be given to our SNP Scottish Government for refusing to unbundle the routes. Unbundling would have allowed the private sector to cherry...

Scotland Bill — Second Reading (24 Nov 2015)

Lord Sanderson of Bowden: ...from the noble Lord, Lord Smith of Kelvin, who fully approves the Bill as presently constituted. As he said, if the powers are used wisely, it will be of great benefit to everyone in Scotland. I support the Bill because I believe that taxation must go hand in hand with representation if a Parliament or Assembly is to have any democratic legitimacy, although I must say that devolving 100%...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: HMRC Office Closures (24 Nov 2015)

Peter Dowd: ...has taken place ahead of the announcements? As far as I am concerned, absolutely none has taken place. Have the following losses to HMRC been taken into account? What about redundancies, income tax, local business tax, increase in jobseeker’s allowance, income support claims, national insurance contributions? The list goes on. In my constituency specifically, what will happen to the...

Fuel Poverty (24 Nov 2015)

Clive Lewis: ...but, alas, not that far off either—sometime in the 22nd century. So why such dramatic Government failure? Why the lack of vision and ambition in tacking this critical issue? Why are 6 million low-income families still living in badly insulated homes? Why has funding for energy efficiency for the fuel poor been cut in real terms by 20% and the installation of energy efficiency...

Community and Voluntary Sector Funding — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (24 Nov 2015)

Anna Turley: ...sector. We recognise the importance of diversity of funding and of capacity within the sector; to my mind, however, we must not lessen the importance of the role of partnership with public services and the support of local authorities and central Government, as they are often absolutely critical to funding projects that would not necessarily get private sector support. My hon. Friend the...
