Upcoming Business – Lords: Main Chamber (6 November 2014)

Additional cost to the Exchequer in tax credits in the light of the falling value of the National Minimum Wage. Oral Questions

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 30 - Power to provide for automatic termination of universal credit (23 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

Catherine McKinnell: The clause makes the same provisions as set out in clause 29, but with respect to universal credit rather than tax credits. We appreciate that universal credit has some way to go before it is rolled out beyond its current pilot areas, but the clause allows for regulations to provide for the automatic termination of a person’s universal credit award, or that of their partner, where that...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 29 - Termination of tax credit awards (23 October 2014)

Clause 29 - Termination of tax credit awards

Construction Industry — Motion to Take Note (23 October 2014)

Lord Haskel: ...that I joined because I saw it as a crusade for equality. Today, nowhere is inequality more visible than in housing. It was perhaps easier to overlook this inequality in more prosperous times, when credit was easier and prices were lower, but rising inequality tells us that it is time for a change. Without change, inequality in housing will cause yet more hardship, and more people’s...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 15 - Childcare accounts (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Priti Patel: ...with parents in mind, and we are working on that with stakeholders. Amendment 10 would allow regulations to be brought forward to permit parents who receive support from other schemes, such as universal credit or tax credits, to receive payments through a child care account. I should remind the Committee that the new scheme is fundamentally different from schemes such as universal credit...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 14 - Qualifying child (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Alex Cunningham: ...spirit. The Government should be taking action to address the shortcoming not by narrowing the parameters within which a child will qualify for the new scheme, as proposed, but by adopting the amendment. Acting to align the maximum age of eligibility for the tax-free child care scheme and the child care element of universal credit with the 2006 Act would ensure that older disabled children...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Minimum Wage (22 October 2014)

Hywel Williams: ...therefore agree with my contention that the way to achieve a basic but decent standard of life is the living wage, which would benefit 266,000 workers in Wales alone, and in the UK would slash the tax credits bill by £1.5 billion per annum? Clearly, Plaid Cymru’s policy on the living wage is the best for Wales and for the UK.

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 12 - The person and his or her partner must not be in a relevant childcare scheme (21 October 2014)

Catherine McKinnell: ...will be most beneficial to them.’ Clause 12 covers the seventh eligibility condition, providing that a person or their partner cannot be in another relevant child care scheme, including employer-supported child care, universal credit or directly contracted child care. That ties in with clauses 62 and 63, which provide for the restricting of the employer-supported child care scheme to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Welfare Reform: Mitigation Proposals (21 October 2014)

Mervyn Storey: ...range of other stakeholders, with the key objective of continuing to protect the most vulnerable.  Members are already aware that the following payment flexibilities have been secured for payment of universal credit in Northern Ireland:  all claimants will receive twice-monthly payments;  a range of options will be available to split the single household payment; and the...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 11 - Neither the person nor his or her partner may be claiming universal credit. (21 October 2014) See 6 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: Clause 11 sets out the sixth condition of eligibility, which is that the person and their partner, if they have one, cannot be claiming universal credit. The clause provides that when a person makes a declaration of eligibility under the scheme, they must not be due any award and must not have made a claim to receive universal credit that would be payable during the entitlement period. In...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 10 - The income of the person and his or her partner must not exceed limit (21 October 2014) See 3 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: ...additional rate parameter, to make it simple and straightforward. It is about raising awareness of the scheme and making it simple when people access it, as well as not complicating it from a tax point of view. We are also trying to keep it straightforward for parents to assess their eligibility for the scheme. However, I emphasise that the focus is on those on lower incomes. We have...

Public Bill Committee: National Insurance Contributions Bill: Clause 1 - Reform of Class 2 contributions (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Shabana Mahmood: ...was a very useful and helpful oral evidence session that dealt with many of the technical points about the legislation that were raised by various stakeholder groups, including the Chartered Institute of Taxation and the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group. They were concerned about some of the effects of the simplification measures; we heard  good clarification on those points. I am...

Public Bill Committee: National Insurance Contributions Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Gillian Wrigley: Thank you for inviting me here today. Perhaps I can give a bit of background about how universal credit works. If you are an employed person, such as I am, universal credit depends on both my family circumstances and the amount of net income that I receive from my employer on a monthly basis. In other words, what is looked at is my income after tax and national insurance...

Public Bill Committee: National Insurance Contributions Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014)

...industry but for technology and other IT implementations for large organisations. If you look at a personal service company, that is effectively a third party; it is not the individual. To give credit to the Revenue, it has gone to some lengths to make its position clear that the agency rules are not intended to apply in a situation where we have a personal service company in normal...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 8 - The person must be in the UK (21 October 2014)

Priti Patel: The Bill provides a broad rule setting the territorial scope of the scheme by requiring those benefiting from it to be in the United Kingdom. That follows the same approach as for tax credits and universal credit, so regulations made under the clause will provide detail on exactly what that means, with some necessary explanation. The draft regulations that we have made available to members of...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 5 - Entitlement periods (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Lucy Powell: ...burden that it might place on parents. It is a probing amendment to allow us to understand the process better. I understand where the Government and the Minister are coming from in trying to get the balance right between learning lessons from the tax credit system, where people ended up in a situation where they were overpaying, and taking some of the best parts of the employer-supported...

Public Bill Committee: National Insurance Contributions Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014)

..., but again those are significantly higher than four years ago. We need to look at how HMRC can design its systems so that people do not have to  phone up or write as often as they do. In that sense, the tax system could be simpler and not require as many communications. In terms of this measure and the change for class 2 national insurance contributions, the first point to make is...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 1 - Entitlement to receive money towards costs of childcare (21 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: ...accounts are simple to operate for parents and child care providers, while giving parents the certainty that their money will be secure. On the hon. Lady’s point on families having access to the scheme, tax-free child care will be available for up to 1.9 million families. Approximately 1 million families  will be better off under the scheme. It is different from existing...

Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014)

Angela Watkinson: When you give advice about how to make best use of pension savings, does it include the comparative advisability of whether a person should continue to pay existing debt—mortgages, credit cards or other loans—or whether they should use capital from their pension pot to pay it off, and what impact that will have on their benefit entitlements in the future? I have a separate...

The Chairman of Ways and Means took the Chair as Deputy Speaker (Standing Order No. 3) — European Union (Referendum) Bill (17 October 2014)

John Hemming: ...would have thought that we would be encouraging people to come here to sell The Big Issue, yet by selling that paper or running a nonsensical or otherwise unprofitable scrap metal deal, people qualify for tax credits and get a lot more money from them than they do from The Big Issue or whatever it may be. People migrate here to be officially poor. Nobody would ever have thought that was...
