Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward (26 May 2016)

Murdo Fraser: ...else that we do. It provides the well-paid jobs that people need, the homes for people to live in and the transport links that they need to travel on. Crucially, a strong economy also provides the tax revenue that the Scottish Government needs to fund its spending. This will be the first session of the Scottish Parliament in which a substantial proportion of the money that we spend has...

Debate on the Address: Education, Skills and Training (25 May 2016)

Lucy Powell: ...the care leavers covenant. But let us not kid ourselves that the context has not got much, much harder.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (25 May 2016)

Lord Flight: ...prospered reasonably well. I support the auto-enrolment measures and NEST, although the contributions are insufficient to provide an adequate income in old age. I would like to see much greater simplification, for example by restricting the tax credit to 20% for everybody but also by lifting the constraints on how much you can contribute and what your pension pot can be. At present, many...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Statement: Taking Scotland Forward (25 May 2016)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...over social security. We will introduce a social security bill in the first year of this session and we will start work to establish a new Scottish social security agency. We will use our new powers to put dignity and respect back at the heart of our social security system. We will abolish the bedroom tax; we will make changes to how universal credit can be paid; we will extend winter fuel...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (24 May 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...payer but will be accountable only to the Minister who appointed them. This is not open government. Furthermore, in a different area, the Conservatives plan to extend voting rights to Britons living permanently abroad, even if they pay no UK taxes and are unaffected by what a Government do. But it would mean, I assume, that they are then permitted to make donations to political parties,...

Defending Public Services (23 May 2016)

Ed Vaizey: ...Karren Brady. Before I mention individual speeches, may I reject the persistent criticism from the Opposition about this being a thin Queen’s Speech? We focus on sugar-free drinks and the sugar tax, but the Queen’s Speech is packed with fantastic nuggets. My Bill will push forward the digital economy. The Department for Transport will focus on autonomous vehicles and on...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (23 May 2016)

Baroness Jowell: can indeed distinguish between the fear of a free-for-all in immigration and the chance to give back to a small number of unaccompanied refugee children who have suffered unimaginable trauma their childhood. Tax credits, support for disabled people and social housing are all causes that will change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. They were all taken up by your...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Lord Murphy of Torfaen: ...Executive. Over the past year there have been at least nine U-turns by the Government—all of which I completely applaud, by the way—including, of course, today’s decision on junior doctors. However, when we look at tax credits, disability benefits, VAT on tampons, Sunday trading, child refugees and others all in one year, we have to think about how the Government are...

Scottish Parliament: Ministers and Junior Ministers (19 May 2016)

John Finnie: and wish them the very best in the future. I had more dealings in the previous session with Mr Neil. As others have said, he drove through the equal marriage legislation, which is a great credit to him and the Government. We welcome the appointment of the Deputy First Minister, John Swinney, as the education secretary. That is indicative of the priority that the First Minister has...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (18 May 2016)

Tim Farron: ...this place, but we still stand. It is the system we have, and rather than take notice of an old convention between two establishment parties, I will take the side of the people, and if we can stop tax credit cuts by using the other place, we will jolly well use it, and if he wants to reform the House of Lords, we will be with him in the Lobbies. We heard the Leader of the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (1st Day) (18 May 2016)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...for the Environment. Despite such demanding positions, one biographical note reflected: “King never had a strong public profile compared to other members of the Cabinet”. But the explanation for that does him great credit, because it reasons that he did not, “draw attention to himself by elementary errors or public gaffes”. That reputation for competence and...

European Union Migration: National Insurance - Statement (12 May 2016)

Baroness Sherlock: ...of NINos. Has the Minister’s department had the opportunity to compare the NINo data set out today with, for example, the RTI data that his department holds, self-assessment, or the DWP L2 and tax credit benefit data? That would enable him to make a judgment and perhaps make it quite clear that many of these people are coming in as short-term visitors and not long-term workers.
