The devolved structures and powers of the...

Local Government Finance — Statement (8 Feb 2016)

Lord Beecham: My Lords, I extend the customary thanks to the Minister for repeating the Statement, although what is being offered to local government could best be described as the equivalent of a cup of hemlock, slightly diluted. It is seven weeks since the provisional local government finance settlement was announced. Today, barely a month before councils are required to determine their budgets and set...

Local Government Finance (8 Feb 2016)

Peter Kyle: The recent report by ResPublica said that 37,000 elderly people who were dependent on statutory funding for residential care were at risk of losing their places and becoming homeless because of the rise in the minimum wage and cuts to local council funding.

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (4 Feb 2016)

The First Minister: —and earning 21,000 is looking forward to a 100 increase in the minimum pay rise as a result of John Swinney’s decision. That minimum pay rise will go up from 300 to 400 in April. Every single penny of that extra 100 will be taken away by Labour’s proposals. As Gordon Brown once said, there is hardly a nurse, teacher,...

Immigration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued)8.49 pm (3 Feb 2016)

Lord Bates: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Teverson, in particular. Raising our sights to talk of love on day 4 of the Immigration Bill in Committee at quarter to 10 at night sends the mind wandering. It is good. We welcome those who wish to make a life in the UK with their family, to work hard and to make a contribution, but family life must not be established here at the...

Local Government Funding — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (3 Feb 2016)

Simon Danczuk: The hon. Gentleman makes an important point about the unfair way that these cuts have been spread across the country.

The cuts to our budget will have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable people in our town. I...

The project has been told by the local authority that its moneys are going to be cut. As regards early years investment, there are threats to budgets the length and the breadth of Scotland. If we had a joined-up strategy and a...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] (2 Feb 2016)

Kevin Brennan: We have had a very good debate, with 25 speakers from the Back Benches. I congratulate everybody on their contributions. I will not go through them all because of the time available, but I will say it has been a very interesting debate. A lot of Members have tried to categorise or describe the Bill. My hon. Friend the Member for Wallasey (Ms Eagle) said at the outset that it is easier to say...

Childcare Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (2 Feb 2016)

Lord Nash: My Lords, I thank the noble Baronesses, Lady Jones, Lady Pinnock and Lady Howarth, who have spoken in the debate.

[Graham Stringer in the Chair] — Transitional State Pension Arrangements for Women (1 Feb 2016)

Rachel Reeves: I absolutely agree. The reality is that the 300,000 women who are suffering the maximum 18-month delay have lost out on 12,000 of pension. Official statistics show that only six in 10 women aged 55 to 64 have any private pension at all. For those who do, the average size of their pension pot is only 57% of that of a man of the same age. Women such as Barbara, Margaret and others whom my...

Immigration Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (1 Feb 2016)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I was pleased to add my name to these amendments.

ILPA also makes the case for allowing payment to be made by instalments: “The sum at stake, the 200, 150 for students may appear modest. It is not. Factor in...
