Did you mean: the giving age?

Bill Presented: Backbench Business — Christmas Adjournment (18 December 2014)

Paul Burstow: I echo the last point made by the hon. Member for Hendon (Dr Offord). It is right that that sort of investment is made because it provides a saving and makes a huge difference to people’s ability to live with the consequences of their eye problem. I commend him for what he said. Before the House rises for Christmas, I wish to raise several issues. The first concerns my constituent...

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

Michael Weir: Clearly the main issues are a direct result of the current Government’s policies. Many people turning to food banks have been “sanctioned”, to use the Government’s word, often for seemingly unfair reasons. Some 86% of food banks say that they have seen an increase in referrals for that reason. It is not just the Trussell Trust making that point; Barnardo’s also...

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Housing Benefit (Abolition of Social Sector Size Criteria) (17 December 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Lilian Greenwood: In March 2013, two weeks before the bedroom tax came into force, I secured an Adjournment debate to highlight the problems that this cruel and unworkable policy would create for some of the people in my city—those who were least able to afford it. I highlighted which households would be affected, with two thirds including someone with a disability, one third being families with...

Bombardment of the Hartlepools (16 December 2014)

Iain Wright: Exactly 100 years today, the towns of Hartlepool and West Hartlepool were attacked by German forces. This is probably the single most momentous day in my constituency’s history, a day which for ever altered civilian life and the way in which modern warfare is conducted. The bombardment of the Hartlepools has been remembered and commemorated ever since, none more so than today, its...

National Minimum Wage (16 December 2014) See 5 other results from this debate

Jo Swinson: Certainly; I am happy to. I understand where the hon. Gentleman and his Opposition colleagues are coming from when they call for a five-year target, but there are significant problems with that approach. Announcing an ambitious-sounding minimum wage level would not necessarily take into account future economic conditions, which could be a problem in two ways. If the economy did not perform as...

Bills Presented: Clause 21 — General duty on specified authorities (16 December 2014)

Julian Lewis: I rise to support the thrust of the argument made by the right hon. Member for Salford and Eccles (Hazel Blears). We have worked on these issues in tandem so many times that if they were put onto a DVD, we would be in danger of compiling a box set between us. However, by returning to the same subject again and again and often in the same terms in our campaign to get the Government to do more...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — UK Company Supply Chains (16 December 2014)

Ian Lavery: As ever, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Crausby. This issue—human rights abuses in the UK supply chain—is an extremely live one. Whether it is the children of the Colombian coalfields, abuse in the sweatshop economies in Bangladesh, the exploitation of the workers in India in relation to the blood bricks, or the migrant workers in Qatar working in...
