Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Personal allowance for 2017-18 (30 Jun 2016)

David Gauke: ...of paying income tax altogether. The Government want to go further by increasing the personal allowance to 12,500 by the end of the Parliament and by ensuring that no one working 30 hours a week on the national minimum wage pays any income tax at all. Clause 3 marks another significant step towards our meeting those commitments by raising the personal allowance from 11,000 in...

Business of the House (30 Jun 2016)

Paula Sherriff: A constituent of mine cares for his severely disabled mother and also works 16 hours a week. Due to the increase in the minimum wage and the freeze on the earnings threshold for carer’s allowance, he is now more than 3,200 a year worse off. He is not alone—many thousands are in the same position. The Government claim to care for the most vulnerable in our society, and they...

Zero-hours Contracts - Question for Short Debate (29 Jun 2016)

the Earl of Courtown: ...the long term. The Immigration Act 2016 creates a new Director of Labour Market Enforcement, who will be responsible for overseeing and setting priorities for the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate, national minimum wage enforcement and the Gangmasters Licensing Authority, bringing better co-ordination. The right reverend Prelate and the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, mentioned rogue...

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)

Wes Streeting: a risk, under not just the current Government but the next Prime Minister, that the future will be about a race to the bottom, further casualisation of labour—a race to the bottom in terms of wages and terms and conditions —because outside the protection of the single market that is the only way for this country to profit in the way those at the top of society want. That...

Bills Presented: National Minimum Wage (Workplace Internships) Bill (29 Jun 2016)

National Minimum Wage (Workplace Internships) Bill

Scottish Parliament: Gender and the Workplace (29 Jun 2016)

Alex Rowley: .... I am pleased that the minister has said that he will accept Labour’s amendment. On the Conservative Party’s amendment, we need to stop confusing the increase that George Osborne made to the minimum wage with a real living wage. That creates confusion; the two are not the same thing. In its briefing for the debate, close the gap talks about the education and skills pipeline....

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (Implications for Scotland) (28 Jun 2016)

Willie Rennie: .... That is the best possible option. I will not settle for anything less. We need to understand, however, why 1 million people in Scotland voted to leave the European Union. It is of little surprise that someone with a minimum-waged job, a zero-hours contract, a damp house and a car that has failed its MOT might think that he or she has nothing to lose. Such people probably would not...

Finance Bill: Taxable benefits: application of Chapters 5 to 7 of Part 3 of ITEPA 2003 (27 Jun 2016)

Rob Marris: to clarify that difference today, if he cannot do so in the Bill. Clause 14 is entitled “Travel expenses of workers providing services through intermediaries”. This is a difficult issue for all of us, because it involves questions of equality between those who are workers but not necessarily employees, and those who are employees. I should explain to those who are not...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Landlord Registration Scheme (20 Jun 2016)

Michelle Gildernew: ...his only option. I disagree with comments made by Christopher Stalford: cost is a prohibitive factor for a lot of people going into private rented, especially if you are in full-time work on the minimum wage and are not entitled to top-up benefits. The gentleman whom I am talking about could not get a house that his children wanted to visit him in. That is so sad. We are talking about a...

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Helen Goodman: ...arrogance is putting 93,000 jobs at risk. Let us look at the car industry. If we leave, it will face tariffs of 10%. It is supposed to cope with that through labour market flexibility, which, translated into English, means wage cuts. Wages account for only a third of total costs, so people would have to take a 30% pay cut or lose their jobs. There are 450,000 jobs at risk. The hon. Member...

Scottish Parliament: Trade Union Membership (15 Jun 2016)

Clare Haughey: ...conditions improved. The legacy of those hard-won benefits remains with us. Trade unions and collective bargaining have given us many of the benefits that are now so often taken for granted: a standard working day with paid breaks; the minimum wage; pay for overtime; paid holidays and public holidays; sick pay; paid maternity and, recently, paid paternity leave; the right to withdraw...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Jun 2016)

David Cameron: ...has commenced and carried out a number of prosecutions, including in the east of England, where I was yesterday. We will continue to take action on every level to make sure that people are paid the wages that they should be paid and that protections are there on the minimum wage, and now on the national living wage. All those measures are vitally important, and we will continue with all of...

Affordable Housing: London — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (14 Jun 2016)

Barry Gardiner: ...hon. Friend aware that in Brent the rent for an average two-bedroom property is 21,500 a year? If one looked at affordable homes at 80% of that, that would be 17,222 a year, when the national minimum wage brings in 13,852. The maths simply does not stack up for people living at the bottom of the scale in London.

Digital Skills (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...those, and which will inform future government investment. Through the digital economy Bill we will be introducing measures to implement a broadband universal service obligation by 2020. This will oblige providers to provide households and businesses with a broadband connection of a minimum speed, regardless of location. I am sure there will be many opportunities to debate the detail. To...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children: Day Care (13 Jun 2016)

Sam Gyimah: ...We can confirm that the additional 15 hours will be available to families where both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family), with each parent earning a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage or living wage. Working will include employed and self-employed parents. In general families where one parent does not work (or neither...

Renters’ Rights Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 Jun 2016)

Baroness Grender: ...understand why it is not possible to get a reference check on a landlord, given the experience that she went through. As I said before—I do not think that there was a response on this—if it is possible that employers who flout the national minimum wage legislation can be included on an open register, it must be possible to explore this for landlords. On Clause 2, regarding what...

Business of the House: Carers (9 Jun 2016)

Barbara Keeley: Carers charities often raise with us the link with things such as the national minimum wage. The Minister talked about the figure last year, but the national minimum wage changed in April, and many of the carers trying to keep a part-time job going will be at that level, so it seems sensible to link the threshold with the national minimum wage so that when the national minimum wage increases,...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Apprentices: Pay (9 Jun 2016)

Nicholas Boles: The Department has not made any assessment of the pay rates for this specific group. We are increasing the National Minimum Wage for people on apprenticeships by 3.0 per cent to 3.40 per hour in October 2016. Most apprentices receive more than the minimum; the median basic hourly pay rate is 6.31 for Level 2 and 3, and 9.68 for Level 4 and 5 Higher Apprentices. The...
