Regeneration (South-East Wakefield) (10 September 2014)

Jon Trickett: It is good to see you in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker, and to see the Minister in her place. It is a great privilege to be allowed to lead this short debate on the regeneration of south-east Wakefield. I suppose that everybody who has been a Member of this House and represented a constituency would say, genuinely, how proud they were to represent the area for which they were elected. I feel...

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

Gareth Thomas: In 2012, the Prime Minister said that he wanted to see economic growth that would mean rising living standards for all. Can the Leader of the House tell us, then, why Britain has seen one of the largest falls in real wages among the European Union countries, beaten only by Cyprus, Portugal and Greece?

National Insurance Contributions Bill (8 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Priti Patel: This has been an efficient debate—the Bill was discussed at great length in debates on the Finance Bill. On that basis, I will not recap the purpose of the Bill or the clauses, which have been effectively discussed. However, it is fair, right and proper that I address the points made by Labour Members. Clearly, there is consensus in a number of areas—work has taken place in...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 3 - Meaning of exploitation (4 September 2014)

Diana Johnson: I would never accuse the hon. Lady of causing mischief. We have tabled new clauses because we have had the benefit of looking at the clauses that the Joint Committee proposed. We also looked at the Government’s criticisms. We have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of voluntary and charitable organisations. The Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group came up with an alternative...

Backbench Business: Achievement Gap in Reading (4 September 2014)

Barry Sheerman: When the hon. Gentleman and I were on the Select Committee looking at this subject we disagreed, and we will continue to do so. The increasing evidence of the larger number of home schooled children is a worry in any society. This week, we had a statement on what was happening to children in one town. I believe we have a duty as parliamentarians to know where every child is, what the...

Backbench Business: Non-league Football (4 September 2014)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am delighted to be able to speak in today’s debate, coming as it does just two days before non-league day. I add my tribute to the hon. Member for Hereford and South Herefordshire (Jesse Norman) for securing the debate and for his speech. I am proud to have three non-league teams in my constituency—a number that very few Members can boast. I hope to be able to raise some of...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Stamp Duty (Housing Market) (4 September 2014)

Anne Main: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts. This debate is broad, and I am sure that there will be various takes on stamp duty. I wanted it to be broad because people will have different views on what we should be doing about stamp duty, which is incurred by many constituents throughout the country. Stamp duty land tax first appeared in its current form in 2003, and it is...

Adult Learning — [John Robertson in the Chair] (3 September 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Liam Byrne: It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Hackney South and Shoreditch (Meg Hillier) on securing the debate. She has always been a fighter for her constituency and for Hackney college, and she reminded us this afternoon of why we need to spend more time debating this subject, for which we are grateful. I want to draw out a...

High Speed 2 (Warrington) (2 September 2014)

Helen Jones: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Warrington South (David Mowat) and to the Minister for allowing me to participate in this debate, not least because I applied for it and somehow it ended up in his name—strange are the ways of the Table Office. Nevertheless, we are both here because although we may have political differences on a number of issues, even perhaps on some aspects of...

Business of the House Commission: Pension Schemes Bill (2 September 2014)

Mark Field: I do share some of those concerns. I agreed to a certain extent with the Opposition spokesman’s points about the tension that exists. There is a tension, perhaps an understandable tension, between the drive towards individualism, which as a Conservative I support, and elements of the collective nature of pensions that have hitherto been in place. Unfortunately it is clear that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Long-term Economic Plan (2 September 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

George Osborne: Of course one of the challenges across the western world has been wage growth. The shadow Chancellor put it very well in an interview he gave last week. He said: “I think that the fact that you had the massive…financial crisis which happened on our watch meant people saw their living standards hit.” There is an admission of where the source of the problem is, and the...

I will refer to some of the evidence and information given to the Joint Committee as I speak to the amendments tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate, and I shall comment on the contributions made in this Committee by the hon. Members for...

bill presented: Hazaras (Afghanistan and Pakistan) (1 September 2014)

Alan Whitehead: As my right hon. Friend the Member for Southampton, Itchen (Mr Denham) eloquently put it in his introduction to the debate, this Hazara community does not have a nation; it has parts of a nation and has had a substantial diaspora across the world, with perhaps a million Hazaras in Iran, more than half a million in Pakistan and between 1 million and 2 million in Afghanistan. These people have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (1 September 2014)

Rachel Reeves: Two thirds of children in poverty now live in families in which somebody is working, and a record 5 million people are earning less than a living wage. In-work poverty is an injustice and an indignity to those who suffer it, but it also costs the taxpayer through the benefit system. Will the Secretary of State tell us by how much the spending on housing benefit for people in work is expected...
