Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Living Wage: Young People (16 Sep 2015)

National Insurance Contributions (Rate Ceilings) Bill (Programme): Tax Credits (15 Sep 2015)

Alistair Carmichael: long term. There was a lot in the Minister’s speech with which I could agree quite easily. When he spoke about the importance of raising the personal tax allowance, the very welcome increases to the minimum wage and the importance of providing better childcare provision, those are all things with which I could have no difficulty. The difficulty I have with the regulations is that...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Childcare: Fermanagh/South Tyrone (15 Sep 2015)

Phil Flanagan: for childcare. Economies of scale are not there because there are not significant enough numbers of children to do that. You then have the added problem that people are working for very low wages, often the minimum wage — if they are lucky enough to get it in some cases — which makes it very difficult for them to justify or sustain the cost of childcare. As well as the...

[Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] — London Black Cabs (15 Sep 2015)

Zac Goldsmith: .... For instance, Uber enjoys a significant price advantage by not paying UK corporation tax, because jobs are booked through the Netherlands. Despite Uber being a $50 billion company, its drivers earn far less than the London living wage; in some cases, they earn a lot less than the minimum wage.
