Sharon Hodgson: I am not sure that that answers the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Slough (Fiona Mactaggart), but perhaps the Minister will glean the answer before her winding-up contribution.

Tom Brake: Let me start by responding in a suitably balanced, proportionate and unbiased manner to some below-the-belt political points made by the hon. Member for Chesterfield. He referred to the fact that the Labour party was embarking on looking at its longer-term strategy.

John Mason: I am pleased to take part in the debate, although it is disappointing that we need to keep returning to the subject. A fundamental question is at the heart of welfare reform. Is welfare just another item of expenditure, like rail or roads, on which we can spend a bit more in the good times and a bit less in the bad times, or is it a fundamental minimum that we must be committed to, even if...

Lord Monks: My Lords, as the growth in apprenticeship numbers is largely accounted for in the age range above 25 can the Government use the procurement process, on which many billions of pounds have been spent, to make it a condition of government contracts that apprentices are hired? Can the Government also counter the alarming trend in the number of apprentices not being paid the legal minimum wage?

- National Insurance (Renaming): Backbench Business — Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (25 February 2014)
Jim Sheridan: I thank my hon. Friend and he raises the concerns of many of us. It is irresponsible and I believe negotiations should wait until we have a full understanding of the implications.

Now I see an...
