Lord Kennedy of Southwark: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is the net financial effect on a lone parent working 16 hours a week of the new proposed living wage and the reductions in tax credits in 2016–17.
Lord Davies of Oldham: ...just modest increases—and not in the national living wage but in the minimum wage. That will certainly ensure that working people will receive such modest increases that they will be savaged by the reduction in the tax credits they would otherwise have received, but those are part of the Government’s necessary austerity measures. Working people—and I mean working people,...

Steven Baker: ...the fact that money was very easy for Greece—probably much easier than it should have been—and a nation that had probably been quite parsimonious was encouraged to take advantage of cheap credit and get into bad debt problems. It may well be that that system encouraged Greece to believe that a new way of living beyond one’s needs was possible; but as good Conservatives we...
Baroness Howarth of Breckland: ...that it is a great pity that we live in a society where payday loans are necessary at all and where children are living in poverty when their parents are actually working?

Ian Blackford: We hear from the Institute for Fiscal Studies that the gross impact of the higher minimum wage will be about £4 billion, but that the cuts to tax credits represent about £6 billion. The proportion of children in poverty who are from families in work rose from 54% to 63%, and that statistic can only get worse. It is little surprise that the Government want to redefine child poverty....
