Bill Presented: Backbench Business — Christmas Adjournment (18 December 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Jeremy Lefroy: ...funding for older people is not sufficient, which certainly affects my constituency and my county. Constituents have raised a number of other matters, often relating to older people and their treatment by pension funds and their tax treatment. A widow who had been married to a policeman who died in the course of his service has found that, having married again, she is not able to collect...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Food Banks (17 December 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

John Glen: ...when we discuss this matter. Let me therefore point out that we focus extensively on the issues of low pay, benefit administration, benefit delays, hardship payments, short-term benefit advances, tax credits, mandatory reconsideration and benefit sanctions. However, it is also important that we think about supermarkets, the food supply chain, energy companies and regulators, and how the...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Housing Benefit (Abolition of Social Sector Size Criteria) (17 December 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Kate Green: Every time we debate the bedroom tax, it is clear that it is not achieving what Ministers said it would. As costs rise for landlords and more is spent on discretionary housing payments, as even the hon. Member for South Derbyshire (Heather Wheeler) described, the bedroom tax is not only not saving what was predicted, but, as the Minister for Employment claimed on BBC 5 Live in March, it is...

Pension Schemes Bill — Second Reading (16 December 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Lord Newby: My Lords, I think that the strong take-up of auto-enrolment suggests that people are actually a bit more long-sighted than they are sometimes given credit for. Young people in their 20s and early 30s who are thinking about their pension savings are looking at what kind of value for money they can get from doing that as opposed to putting their money into alternative forms of saving. So I am...

National Minimum Wage (16 December 2014)

Dan Jarvis: .... The Low Pay Commission has acknowledged that its relative value has dropped significantly since 2004, and job creation in the lowest-paid sectors has exploded at double the rate of the rest of the economy since 2010. That partly explains why the Government now spend more on tax credits and social security for families in work than they do for the unemployed. It is why the Government have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Post Office Card Account (16 December 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Steve Webb: ...important point. We are testing and trialling approaches to try to work out which sorts of accounts are most suitable for which people. It is important to understand the revolution that universal credit will bring in, because people will get the whole of their benefits—tax credits, and potentially help with housing—and they will have to budget from that one relatively large...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Food Poverty (16 December 2014)

Jane Ellison: ...scheme provides a nutritional safety net for pregnant women, new mothers and children under four years old in families throughout the United Kingdom who are claiming income-based benefits and tax credits.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Immigration: Poland (16 December 2014)

Lord Bates: ...three months unless they have a genuine prospect of work. We have also introduced measures to ensure that new EU job seekers will be unable to access Jobseeker’s Allowance, or Child Benefit and Child Tax Credit, until they have been resident in the UK for three months. The Prime Minister has made clear that further steps are needed to address immigration from the European Union. We...

Written Ministerial Statements — Work and Pensions: Benefit Cap Review (15 December 2014)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...% of the public support it in principle and 77% of the public agree that it is fair for households with no-one working to receive no more in benefit than the average amount working households receive after tax. Very few capped households have moved house and where they have done so, the vast majority have moved locally. The benefit cap has led to little, if any homelessness and local...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Fraud and Administration (15 December 2014)

Francis Maude: The latest audited fraud and error figures available are for 2012/13. During this year DWP reported 3.5 billion on benefits and pensions and HMRC reported 2.01 billion on tax credits. Reported fraud and error across the rest of central government was 70 million, however this figure does not include all arm’s length bodies. In 2011 this Government established the...

Cohabitation Rights Bill [HL] — Second Reading (12 December 2014)

Lord Farmer: ...8212;will struggle to provide adequately for their children, both financially and in terms of the time and attention they need to thrive. Indeed, 9 billion of the costs of family breakdown is accounted for by the additional tax credits that we provide to make up for the lack of a second breadwinner, usually a father. Marriage, on the other hand, not only saves but also makes the...

Economic Leadership for Cities — Motion to Take Note (11 December 2014)

Lord Borwick: ...building homes there. Garden cities will certainly have less air pollution than bigger city centres, where levels of dangerous PM2.5 particles are much higher. Perhaps we can give the Green Party some credit for helping us to focus on building new towns that will be cleaner and greener. A city is only as good as its people and we have to ensure that the younger generations are capable of...

Wales Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 8 — Welsh rates of income tax (10 December 2014)

Glyn Davies: ...on the Front Bench when we started today’s debate. The Government of Wales Act 2006, introduced by the Labour party, moved things forward quite a lot, as did the 2011 referendum in relation to tax-raising powers. The Wales Bill takes us further down the road to what I consider to be the inevitable conclusion, but not far enough for me on tax levying responsibility. I will be blunt...

Universal Credit — Question (10 December 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Freud: ...that we do it safely and securely—not the big bang method. As I said, it is being done more cheaply than originally envisaged. It is vital that we do not do the kind of thing that happened with tax credit when it was opened on one day and was a total shambles for millions of people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 December 2014)

Harriet Harman: And he should be aware that any gains on tax changes for women have been more than wiped out by the hit they have taken on the cuts to tax credits. And yes, I would indeed agree with him that it is breathtaking that 85% of those who benefit from the millionaires’ tax cut are men. Let us try him on another one. What proportion of those hit by his bedroom tax are women?

Childcare Payments Bill — Second Reading (and remaining stages) (9 December 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Lord Newby: ...children can pay into a childcare account and thus increase the amount of government top-up that they can receive. I know that that does not go as far as he would like because he would like the proportion of tax benefit to increase. The challenge here, as with many other potential changes to the scheme, is one of cost. My colleague in another place, the Exchequer Secretary, is looking at...
