Did you mean: the minimum age?

Scottish Parliament: Fuel Poverty (23 April 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Jackie Baillie: We would seek to match that, but we would go further. I invite Jim Eadie to read our challenge paper on fuel poverty, in which we set out a range of measures that we would take. The issue is not about doing just one thing; it is about ensuring that we get the money out the door. In her amendment, the minister boasts about the size of the budget, but the truth is that it is about 70...

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage (23 April 2014) See 16 other results from this debate

John Mason: I absolutely was photographed. Does James Kelly accept that the living wage will not apply to some people in the private sector and that only by raising the statutory minimum wage can we really help people?

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (23 April 2014)

The Presiding Officer: The result of the division is: For 63, Against 50, Abstentions 0. Motion, as amended, agreed to, That the Parliament acknowledges that the Scottish Government is the first to adopt the Scottish living wage for all staff covered by its pay policy and for all staff in the NHS; notes that it is also working to encourage all other employers to pay the living wage; notes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Living Wage (10 April 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Andrew George: Provided that it does not undermine fair trade or UK competitiveness, a significant increase in the minimum wage would clearly be both desirable and the right thing to do. But will my right hon. Friend look particularly at the care sector, where I fear there is a race to the bottom as a result of there simply being a floor where the minimum wage has been set?

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (10 April 2014)

Julie Hilling: In answer to a written question I was told that the Government know next to nothing about the number of jobs they claim to have created, not even how many of them are new jobs rather than simply a transfer from the public sector, so why will the Secretary of State not tell us how many of these jobs are minimum wage, unpaid or zero-hours?

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Minimum Wage (10 April 2014) See 1 other result from this answer

Chuka Umunna: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what recent estimate he has made of rates of national minimum wage non-compliance in each (a) sector and (b) region; what estimate he has made of the number and proportion of people of each gender who are paid below the national minimum wage; and what information on such people is (i) collected and (ii) held.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: New Clause 5 — Bank payroll tax (9 April 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Alison McGovern: For the purposes of Hansard, I thank the Minister for correcting me from a sedentary position. In any event, it is really evident that the bank levy is not good enough. We heard repeated claims about how much it would bring in, but it has failed to reach those levels. The public do not understand why that is, and they want us to take very seriously the position of the financial services...

Income Distribution and Taxation (9 April 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Nicky Morgan: It is an honour to serve under chairmanship, Mr Weir. May I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Forest of Dean (Mr Harper) both on securing the debate and on presenting his case so eloquently? I was also in the House when he spoke in the Budget debate, which I think was his first debate as a Back Bencher for a while. He spoke incredibly eloquently then and it is a pleasure to hear him...

Rural Crime — [Mr Mike Weir in the Chair] (9 April 2014)

Huw Irranca-Davies: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. Increased tightening up in urban areas displaces criminal activity. Curiously, that brings me to another issue raised by the hon. Gentleman where there has been displacement of activity, namely fly-grazing. At a well attended debate in this Chamber about six months ago, hon. Members from England and Wales discussed the matter. When we talk about...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 11 — Tax relief for married couples and civil partners (9 April 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Ian Swales: The hon. Gentleman is making a powerful speech, and I think that we have a unanimous view about the importance of marriage. Does he feel that the Government are communicating the details of the policy clearly enough for the young people about whom he is talking to understand whether it affects them or not? Many of them—for example, couples earning the minimum wage—will not be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: New Clause 1 — Childcare provision (8 April 2014)

Meg Hillier: There is cross-party support for all of that, because I agree that Sure Start was a revolution in early years support. I felt that it should continue so that there was Sure Start at the ages of five and 11. We would stray off the debate if I got into that territory, but my constituency still has 37% of children living in poverty and it is a young constituency. Families of all backgrounds have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: New Clause 4 — Report on increasing the additional rate of income tax to 50% (8 April 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

David Gauke: It is a great pleasure, Mr Amess, to serve under your chairmanship. Before I deal with our annual debate at this stage in the Finance Bill on the 50p rate, I want to say a word or two about clause 1, which is included within the group, which ensures that income tax will be collected in 2014-15. Income tax is the Government’s biggest revenue source and the annual charge legislated in the...

Pensions Bill — Commons Reason (8 April 2014)

Baroness Hollis of Heigham: My Lords, first, I thank the Minister and his honourable friend in the other place, Steve Webb, for briefing me on their position before our amendment went to the Commons to be overturned. I appreciated their courtesy then in the same way that I appreciate the Minister’s generosity today. I also appreciate above all—that is what matters—their recognition—sort of, at...

Military Credit Union — [Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] (8 April 2014)

Gareth Thomas: The hon. Gentleman makes a good point. If I remember rightly, through a subsidiary Navy Federal offers specialist insurance services as well. In short, it offers highly competitive services to those who put themselves in harm’s way for the United States. It provides tailored services to military personnel, supporting their specific needs, including the commitment to cover pay during the...

Armed Forces — Question for Short Debate (7 April 2014)

Lord Astor of Hever: My Lords, I am also grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Dannatt, for introducing this very important issue. I share the right reverend Prelate’s thoughts for those members of the Armed Forces serving on operations and, of course, for their families. It is right that we should do everything we can to ensure that our country is not caught unawares in the event of unforeseen crises and...

Written Answers — Business, Innovation and Skills: Minimum Wage (7 April 2014) See 1 other result from this answer

Gloria De Piero: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills how many and what proportion of (a) people, (b) men and (c) women were in (i) work, (ii) full-time work and (iii) part-time work in each constituency earn the national minimum wage; and what those figures were in each year since 2010.

Written Answers — Work and Pensions: State Retirement Pensions (7 April 2014)

Gordon Marsden: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what assessment he has made of whether an individual on the minimum wage for a full working lifetime will receive a higher retirement income under the new single tier pension system than under the existing pension system.

Immigration Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (3 April 2014)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: My Lords, I am pleased that the noble Lord, Lord Rosser, has brought this back, and it has been very useful to hear from the noble Baroness, Lady O’Neill of Bengarve, about her take on this issue. She raises some of the subtle things at the edge of any blanket restriction that might be made. I said right at the beginning when we debated this issue in Committee that the Opposition and...

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (3 April 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Nicola Sturgeon: I am not in opposition to that policy. We have said clearly that, at the point at which Scotland became independent, we would inherit the prevailing income tax rates and personal allowances. However, I am concerned about the overall impact of Westminster policies on the most vulnerable in our society. The Treasury’s own publication on the impact of the budget on Scottish households...

Development: Post-2015 Agenda — Question for Short Debate (2 April 2014)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I, too, thank my noble friend Lady Kinnock for initiating this important and timely debate. The OECD estimates that between 2000 and 2010, 83 developing countries achieved growth rates equivalent to double the OECD average, but that this growth has not necessarily been inclusive. Going back only 15 years, there were just two dollar billionaires in India; now there are 46. The $176...
