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...

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.

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

Baroness Howe of Idlicote: ...would be happy to make that case—or part of it, anyhow. Child protection law clearly defines a child as a person under the age of 18. This is enshrined in the Children Act 1989 and in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. However, the law on neglect is 80 years old, so quite clearly it is seriously out of date. In 1933, life as a 16 year-old was very different....
