EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Helen Goodman: Britain stands at a crossroads. The nation has to make a big choice: whether to stay in the EU or to leave. The EU was built on the ashes of world war two once people realised that security and prosperity were linked. Today, again, the world is an uncertain place. Russia has forcibly taken Crimea. Syria is in the throes of a devastating civil war. What is the best approach? Should we pull up...

David Cameron: ...has commenced and carried out a number of prosecutions, including in the east of England, where I was yesterday.

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: Is my 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.

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...—must be involved. Of course, the Government are a key institution. Digital is also a key driver of UK growth and innovation.

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

Baroness Grender: ...of her 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,...

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,...

Age Discrimination: National Living Wage (8 Jun 2016)

Nicholas Boles: ...Hers was one of the more reasonable and well-founded arguments made, but listening even to her speech one would have thought it was not the Labour Government who introduced the idea of age-related minimum wages. Because you are, Mr Davies, like me, of a somewhat older generation than some of the contributors to the debate, you will remember that age-related rates were an integral part of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jun 2016)

David Cameron: float like a butterfly and sting like a bee, although that is not always possible in the circumstances that we face. On Sports Direct, I absolutely abhor the appalling practice of not paying the minimum wage, and this Government have done more than any previous Government to crack down on non-payment. We have levied almost 5,000 penalties since 2010. We continue to name and shame...

Scottish Parliament: Celebrating Glasgow’s Third Sector (7 Jun 2016)

Johann Lamont: ...massive pressure. One organisation that provides care in my city will have a 100,000 shortfall because it has to fulfil new conditions imposed by Europe in relation to sleepovers and because of the new national minimum wage.
