Jobseeker’s Allowance — Question (21 October 2014)

Lord Freud: ...apology that I made last week. I want to make a full and unreserved apology for the comments that I made at the Conservative Party conference. Of course disabled people should be paid at least the minimum wage, just like everybody else, and I am profoundly sorry for any offence that I caused. I turn to the noble Baroness’s question. Matthew Oakley found that benefit sanctions provide...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: New Schedule (20 October 2014)

Tom Elliott: ...and the Department of Justice, and, by and large, the Ulster Unionist Party supports them. Some of the more controversial aspects, as we have heard, are around clause 4 and the principle of setting minimum sentences. However, I acknowledge that Lord Morrow has carried this out in the right way, in that he has allowed for some judicial discretion. I support the issue of...

Social Justice Strategy — Motion to Take Note (16 October 2014)

Lord McAvoy: ...known to the Minister opposite. In the recent broadcast of the statement made by the noble Lord, Lord Freud, at the Conservative Party conference, he said he would take away the idea of paying people with a disability 2 an hour, a reduction in the minimum wage. Did the noble Lord, Lord Freud, or his department carry out any work on that proposal? Can the Minister confirm or otherwise...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014)

Samantha Mann: No, we have not carried out specific research on this question. As employer-supported child care stands, an employee cannot sacrifice their pay below the national minimum wage that prevails for their age group, so any employee who is currently in receipt of the national minimum wage is excluded from employer-supported child care. The advantage of child care payments is that...

Business of the House (16 October 2014)

Angela Eagle: ...prospects that he is desperate to let the EU Bill jump the queue? Yesterday the Prime Minister failed to defend his own welfare Minister, Lord Freud, who claimed that disabled workers are not worth the full minimum wage and promised to go away and think about making them work for 2 an hour. This was not just an unfortunate slip of the tongue; it revealed the truth about this...

Chi Onwurah: ...McKinnell) and me to meet a group of profoundly deaf constituents. I was struck by how much they wanted to participate and engage and, in particular, to find jobs—but not to be paid less than the minimum wage—and also by how excluded they felt by the lack of British sign language accessibility for the web. I am sure that there is a technological solution. What technologies is...

Women and Equalities: Equal Pay (16 October 2014)

Jo Swinson: As I said in yesterday’s debate on the national minimum wage, great shock has been expressed in all parts of the House about Lord Freud’s remarks, which in no way reflect the opinion of the Government. It is therefore quite right that he has apologised in full for those remarks. It is right to set out on the record that people in all parts of the House believe that the minimum...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: NHS Services (Access) (15 October 2014)

Andrew George: ...and avoiding unnecessary admissions depends on having adequate services at home. Ultimately, that falls on the shoulders of home care workers, who themselves face a race to the bottom, as they are often paid the minimum wage and their travel times and costs are not properly covered. We therefore need a new benchmark that puts a floor in the system by paying those workers a living wage,...

Jo Swinson: ...the political to and fro or the very politicised wording of the motion might suggest. The hon. Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Mr Brown) gave us a welcome reminder of the history of the national minimum wage and his experience on the Bill Committee, which had two overnighters to make the legislation happen. When he was doing that in 1997, I was working in McDonald’s on 2.70...

David Cameron: ...have cut taxes for 26 million people in our country; we have taken 3 million people out of income tax altogether; and we have raised the personal allowance to 10,000, so that if someone is on the minimum wage, we have cut their income tax bill by two thirds. But we have been able to do that only because we remembered something important: you have got to have a long-term economic plan...

If that is the case, we have set the...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (14 October 2014)

Baroness Howe of Idlicote: .... Current laws on work and benefits mean that 16 to 17 year-olds are made more vulnerable to neglect. You will not qualify for universal credit if you are under 18—with some limited exceptions. The minimum wage for a 16 to 17 year-old is 3.72 an hour, which makes it impossible for many to live independently. This law clearly has had serious impacts on 16 to 17 year-olds. The...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: New Clause 37 - Protection from slavery from overseas domestic workers (14 October 2014)

David Hanson: ...the imagination, someone being brought to this country and paid no salary, given no room, having their passport removed, not being allowed to leave the house unsupervised and being effectively paid less than the minimum wage for their work is extremely worrying. The purpose of the new clause is to revert back to the position before April 2012.
