Community and Voluntary Sector Funding — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (24 Nov 2015)

Naseem Shah: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that comment. Although I agree that the third sector is doing a valuable job and is working hard, if one considers the Tory Government’s proposed £300 million-plus cuts to the Big Lottery Fund, which I will refer to later, that will put my comments in context. In communities such as my constituency of Bradford West, where more than 26% of children are...

Isil: Northern Ireland (Welfare Reform) Bill (23 Nov 2015)

Mark Durkan: Several of them were. Some would have had cost implications, but many were cost neutral. That was one of the arguments that the Minister made at the time. We checked whether the British Government were consulted by the Minister or anybody else and asked whether there would be a problem if the amendments were passed, but the British Government made it clear that they were not consulted and...

International Development Policies — Question for Short Debate (19 Nov 2015)

Baroness Flather: My Lords, I was enormously impressed by the noble Earl’s knowledge of all the ways in which projects are being looked at, but a little depressed at the same time, because it seems that we have too much looking at and not enough doing. One of the most important things has been touched on by the noble Lord, Lord Desai, and the noble Viscount, Lord Craigavon. We live in a world in which no...

Foreign Ownership of UK Assets — Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2015)

As the first female chair of the Liberal Democrat parliamentary party and the Government’s ambassador for women...

Public Bill Committee: Housing and Planning Bill: Clause 2 - What is a starter home? (19 Nov 2015)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: Yes, but those are the figures that the Government put on the face of the Bill, so those are the amounts that we want to refer to. I expect that in many areas developers will seek to build starter homes up to the level of the cap, but the hon. Gentleman is of course right that in some areas they might not. We will look at the evidence in a couple of years’ time to see how many homes are...

Employment — Question (19 Nov 2015)

Baroness Howarth of Breckland: My Lords, we know that the poorest families are often working families.

Employee Pay (DWP) (18 Nov 2015)

Justin Tomlinson: I will have to come back on those specific details. The Chancellor also announced in the Budget earlier this year the very welcome introduction of a statutory national living wage for those aged 25 plus from April 2016. Our Secretary of State has long championed the principle that, if people work hard, they should be rewarded. He welcomed the introduction of the national living wage as...

Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: The Economy (18 Nov 2015)

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform: Legislative Consent Motion (18 Nov 2015)

Alex Attwood: It makes the challenge to Eileen Evason and whoever works with her even more challenging. While they will have a huge responsibility for the allocation of moneys based on whatever criteria, at the same time, DWP — not in Belfast but over in London — will be at its work. The lesson of the past six months is that, when needs must, the British Government will renege on what they say...
