Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (2 July 2015)

Nicky Morgan: The hon. Lady raises an important point. The Government have made it clear that we would like employers to consider paying the living wage, but it has to be the right decision for them. We have made moves to increase the minimum wage, and we have increased the level at which people start to pay income tax, which has disproportionately affected women.

Childcare Bill [HL] — Committee (1st Day) (1 July 2015)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: My Lords, I want to propose Amendment 11 on the definition of a working parent, which adds our suggested categories to the list proposed by other noble Lords. In his response to the Second Reading debate, the Minister said that “working”—and by this we assumed that he meant “working parent”— “will be defined as the equivalent of eight hours per week,...

Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day]: Equal Pay and the Gender Pay Gap (1 July 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

Melanie Onn: I shall come to that point shortly. If I can just make some progress—I have been dying to say that—to tackle unequal pay, it is imperative that we tackle the low-skill, low-wage economy that is particularly detrimental to women. Much of the success of the previous Labour Government was down to the introduction of the minimum wage. With 27% of women earning less than the living...

Operational Productivity in NHS Providers — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (1 July 2015)

Michael Weir: I am glad to speak in this important debate under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. I congratulate the hon. Member for Hendon (Dr Offord) on securing it. Obviously, in Scotland the situation is slightly different, because the NHS is devolved, but many issues cross over, wherever our health services are located. I was very interested in some of the points made. NHS Scotland has produced a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Child Poverty (1 July 2015) See 5 other results from this debate

Iain Duncan Smith: I agree that low earnings are part of the problem, but that is exactly what we are trying to address in raising the thresholds and planning to raise them again to over 12,600. We have taken millions of people out of paying tax. We also targeted this by raising the minimum wage, which will rise again to 6.70. I have made it very clear that I personally want the minimum wage to rise...

Scotland Bill: Clause 26 — Employment support (30 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Ian Murray: The hon. Gentleman is shaking his head, so it must be true. We would then be able to resolve the issue of the college places that have been lost. Amendment 114 would provide for the devolution of the Access to Work scheme to the Scottish Parliament. Access to Work provides practical advice and support to disabled people, and their employers, to help them to overcome work-related obstacles...

Scotland Bill: Clause 24 — Universal credit: costs of claimants who rent accommodation (30 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Eilidh Whiteford: If the hon. Gentleman is proposing that we start paying people a living wage and ensuring that people can actually live on the minimum wage, I could not agree with him more. Fundamentally, until we have living wages, those in low and middle-income families will always live below the breadline and struggle to make ends meet. Those 12 organisations posed a fundamental challenge. As we begin...

National Gallery Industrial Dispute (25 June 2015)

Ed Vaizey: I am grateful for the chance to respond to the hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) and I thank him for securing this debate on this important issue. It is obviously a very sensitive matter and it has caused some emotion. He referred to the rally that was held at the end of May in Trafalgar Square.

Member for Glasgow Central (Alison Thewliss) reflected on the extent to which industrial jobs have gone from her constituency. Like my hon....

Child Poverty — Statement (25 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Baroness Hollis of Heigham: My Lords, forgive me, but that is simply not the case. It is already true that more than half the children who are in poverty have a parent already in work. Work for them is not the route out of poverty. The obvious response is to seek to increase the minimum wage to a living wage level, but even so, families will still need tax credits to make work pay. Can the Minister not accept that the...

Will he confirm that last year, 19% of children were in absolute poverty, and that this year, 19% of children...
