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...

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: ...informed decisions about which scheme will be most beneficial to them.’ Clause 12 covers the seventh eligibility condition, providing that a person or their partner cannot be in another relevant child care scheme, including employer-supported child care, universal credit or directly contracted child care. That ties in with clauses 62 and 63, which provide for the restricting of the...

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 are building up our communications campaigns and plans to ensure that parents are aware of what support is available in the right and proper way. 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: 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. It follows that the conditions of eligibility should include the requirement that such parents are genuinely working. That is fundamental to the design of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business : Clause 2 (Functions of the Authority) (21 October 2014)

Michelle McIlveen: ...that, we are willing to work with anyone to refine that, and, certainly, if the Ulster Unionist Party is perhaps inclined to look at how it wishes to proceed with that, we will discuss it. The DUP is more than content to support amendment Nos 3 and 4, tabled by Mr McCallister.  It is stated DUP policy that we support shared education.  Our party leader has led the way on shared...

Lucy Powell: ...? They will prove to make the measure much more effective, especially for those people who work, for example, a lot in the summer and less in the winter; those who have what was described in the oral evidence sessions as a “lumpy” income—that was a new phrase to me. The amendment would allow for a review of the need for a three-monthly reconfirmation process, given the...

Lucy Powell: ...incurring the costs of the childcare” must be “to enable the person to work”, and where they have a partner, the clause specifies that the child care must enable them to work, too. Obviously, we strongly support the principle behind that. On eligibility to qualify for the scheme, the Bill sets out how “work” will be defined for the purpose of the clause. It...

Friend the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, who has been a...
