Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: HMRC Office Closures (24 Nov 2015)

Greg Mulholland: ...MPs keen to curry favour by saying what a wonderful thing the proposal is, alongside some hard-working constituency MPs who have talked about the damage that it will do to their constituency—all credit to them for doing so. More importantly, the Government have not made the case for these changes to the 8,000 staff who will lose their jobs and their livelihoods, or to the many...

Scotland Bill — Second Reading (24 Nov 2015)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...the SNP does is subservient to its goal of independence. We must never forget that. That is what it is doing. If it agrees, it is a tentative agreement. It is done just because it is expedient to do so at the time. As the noble Lord, Lord Lang, said, we have had three Scotland Bills. The tax-varying powers in the 1998 Bill were never used. The second Bill in 2012 led to the Calman...

Fuel Poverty (24 Nov 2015)

Phil Boswell: ...number of measures. A living wage for everyone in work, not those just over the age of 25, would allow young individuals and families to afford the rising costs of fuel. Unfortunately, the cuts to working tax credit and child tax credit recently announced by the Conservative Government—so many households rely upon those credits to be able to pay for basic necessities—will only...

Community and Voluntary Sector Funding — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (24 Nov 2015)

Tulip Siddiq: ..., but does my hon. Friend agree that in the more deprived areas of our constituencies it will not work? We cannot expect people who are choosing between putting the heating on and eating, and whose tax credits are being cut, to volunteer as well and keep up the big society, while the Government crush the roots of local democracy and cut councils’ funding.

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Trident (24 Nov 2015)

Kevin Foster: Would the hon. Gentleman be interested to hear that only a couple of weeks back I was being heckled that this magic money-tree could be spent on tax credits as well? That is another example to add to his long list.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Trident Nuclear Weapons Programme (24 Nov 2015)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: ...the fresh start that Mr Cochrane-Watson talked about, because it has been a lot more temperate and polite than one might have expected. Moving into the future, I hope that we manage to convince the British Government — as we did on welfare, tax credits and extra money for services here — that our priority is to improve the quality of life of those we serve. In that regard, I...

Scottish Parliament: Violence Against Women (24 Nov 2015)

Alison Johnstone: ...nowhere to escape to. It is widely recognised that United Kingdom Government cuts have had a disproportionately negative impact on women. House of Commons library research showed that 74 per cent of the £14.9 billion-worth of cuts to 2012 to benefits, tax credits, pay and pensions came from women’s income. It is no wonder that women feel insecure. That insecurity makes...

Isil: Northern Ireland (Welfare Reform) Bill (23 Nov 2015)

Ben Wallace: ...from the British Government are all here to help job prospects in Northern Ireland, and I will continue to do so. I say to the hon. Member for Foyle that we had to move forward on the issue of tax credits and welfare reform in Northern Ireland. As I said earlier, the fact is that there was no consensus, and in the end it was important to resolve this issue. Northern Ireland could not...

National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 — Statement (23 Nov 2015)

Lord Touhig: ...Armed Forces will know that if service families are happy, the service men and women we send into conflict will have the morale they need to do the job—I am sure the Minister has found that in this time. Does he agree, therefore, that the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s changes to tax credits will be seen as a breach of the Armed Forces covenant? How well does he think ending...

Isil: National Security and Defence (23 Nov 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...many years’ operational service putting their lives on the line being sacked days before becoming eligible for full pensions.

Mesothelioma (Amendment) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (20 Nov 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...on Medical Research, in a rather confessional moment quite recently, that following the decision by your Lordships’ House to advise the elected Chamber to think again about the appropriateness of cuts to tax credits, she was having nightmares that the Chancellor might turn and rend the budget for medical research. If he were to do so, that would be a grotesque non sequitur, and I do...
