Debate on the Address: The Economy and Work (26 May 2016)

Justin Madders: ...with regard to those who are self-employed through necessity. There is no doubt that there are people who should not be classed as self-employed, but because they are classified as such they are offered no basic protection, such as the minimum wage. Urgent action needs to be taken on the reclassification of self-employment. In conclusion, this has been a missed opportunity to tackle the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (25 May 2016)

Lord Inglewood: ...to both land and buildings, both of which are wasting assets and require long-term maintenance. After having thought about it for quite a long time and having had doubts at one time, I see the economic sense of the minimum wage. However, let us remember that its impact on employers is greatest on those who can least afford it. Low-wage areas will find it hardest to achieve what is demanded...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 May 2016)

Barbara Keeley: The care sector faces a crisis made worse by the Chancellor’s failure to fund increases in the minimum wage properly. The 2% social care precept does not cover all the costs, so the Local Government Association asked the Chancellor to bring forward 700 million of better care funding from 2019 to this year and next year to help with the increased costs. Will the Chancellor listen...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (24 May 2016)

Baroness Henig: ...music venues, open-air events and festivals, the late-night economy, shopping malls or even hospitals or job centres, there are a lot of companies out there employing staff in critical situations, usually on minimum wages and doing long shifts. For the most part those staff do a fantastic job, but my worry is that no clear government strategy is in place to manage this increasingly...

Debate on the Address: Europe, Human Rights and Keeping People Safe at Home and Abroad (24 May 2016)

Marie Rimmer: ...salary is 17,735 basic, or 9.22 per hour, exempting antisocial hours payments, and having had years of real-terms pay cuts. By 2020, with the full implementation of the Government’s national living wage, their basic pay will be very little over the legal minimum, disregarding the antisocial hours premium. I warmly recognise and accept the letters dated 18 and 19 May that...

Defending Public Services (23 May 2016)

Chris Stephens: ...growth industry in the United Kingdom. Who would have thought that we would be in an era where that was the case? Where is the legislation to crack down on the abuse of companies not complying with paying the national minimum wage? How does that square with the madness of closing 90% of HMRC offices and making HMRC staff redundant? We now know, through the National Audit Office, that some...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...growth. I did not entirely agree on the issue of automation. I think that driverless cars and so on provide an opportunity for the UK, and they are in our plans for the next Session. Once changing relative wages and new jobs are taken into account, there is little evidence for the reduction in mid-level jobs. Since 2010, our economy has seen employment growth across nearly all the major...

Debate on the Address: Transport and Local Infrastructure (19 May 2016)

Barbara Keeley: ...is too easy a target for cuts. Ministers have been prepared to slash local authority budgets, leading to cuts of 4.6 billion in adult social care since 2010. The Local Government Association has estimated that the implementation of the national living wage—as the Government call it—will this year cost an additional 330 million for home care and residential care...

...and to reduce the deficit. To support working people, legislation was passed to guarantee that key taxes would not rise during this Parliament, to ensure that those working 30 hours a week on the national minimum wage will not pay income tax and to increase the provision of free childcare to working families. To support aspiration and opportunity, legislation was passed to grant housing...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Minimum Wage (12 May 2016)

Lord Blencathra: ...8217;s Government whether they will name those businesses that are known to have changed the terms and conditions of their low-paid workers in order to recover some of the costs of paying an increased minimum wage; and what steps they plan to take to discourage businesses from taking such steps.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 May 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: The national minimum wage was introduced by Labour. The national living wage proposed by the Prime Minister’s friend the Chancellor is, frankly, a corruption of the very idea. It is not, in reality, a proper living wage. My question was about the posting of workers directive proposals, which would prevent the grotesque exploitation by unscrupulous employers of workers being moved from...

Backbench Business - Universal Credit (Children)Backbench Business (10 May 2016)

Eilidh Whiteford: ...receive support, but will be worse off. Therefore, according to the Resolution Foundation, 4.2 million families will be on average more than 40 a week worse off, even taking into account increases in the minimum wage and tax allowances. When universal credit was first introduced, we were told that it would simplify and streamline our benefits system, that it would introduce greater...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Living Wage (10 May 2016)

Nicholas Boles: Holding answer received on 04 May 2016 It is for employers to decide how to manage increases in their wage bill. Many employers will be giving their staff a pay rise and maintaining other benefits. Employers need to ensure their pay and reward packages are competitive to retain and develop the people and talent they need for their business. Employers should be planning ahead,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Social Care Budgets (10 May 2016)

Barbara Keeley: Indeed, good morning, Mr Speaker. A big challenge for local authorities and adult social care is how to fund the increases in the minimum wage that care providers have to pay. As my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne Central (Chi Onwurah) just detailed, the 2% social care precept does not cover all the increased costs and, indeed, in some areas, it is not even being passed on to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health and Social Care Integration (10 May 2016)

Liz McInnes: We recently had a Westminster Hall debate on care workers not even being paid the national minimum wage, and now we have private social care providers saying that they will not be able to afford the new national living wage. How does the Department intend to address this impending crisis?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Disabled People: Benefits (9 May 2016)

Eilidh Whiteford: ...not the only ones who will lose out under universal credit. A devastating report by the Resolution Foundation published just last week found that, even with tax allowances and the increase in the minimum wage, under universal credit half a million working families will be significantly worse off. Disabled people, disabled children and low-income working families—are these really the...

EU Immigration — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (5 May 2016)

Philip Hollobone: ...not slow the intake of EU migrants to our shores at all. A report this week says that only 6% of such migrants would be affected by the proposals, and I would suggest that the very welcome increase in the national minimum wage and the new national living wage will act as a far greater magnet for workers to come here from other European Union countries. Increasingly, even more than now, the...

For example, it has campaigned in favour of a living wage at a higher level than the statutory minimum wage, with the aim of making life easier for the lowest-paid workers. That specific initiative taken by London...
