Business of the House (27 November 2014)

William Hague: ...winter solstice, which is normally on 21 December, or on 22 or 23 December in certain years. I can therefore assure the hon. Lady that 3 December is very much within autumn.

Universal credit is...

It has spent £5 billion more than it planned to spend on tax credits...

Mark Harper: ...Chamber, the hon. Member for Bolton South East said that we should roll it out more slowly, be more careful and thoughtful, and that sort of thing.
