Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, this debate is an incredibly important one, certainly given the progress made in this area by this Government over the last four years, and I thank the noble Lord, Lord Monks, for raising it, as well as all of your Lordships who have contributed with a wide breadth of experience. It is also interesting to hear about the various backgrounds that people speak from. Given that it has...

Jobseeker’s Allowance — Question (21 October 2014)

Lord Freud: I will respond to the noble Baroness in a moment, but first I would like to take this opportunity to repeat briefly the apology that I made last week. I want to make a full and unreserved apology for the comments that I made at the Conservative Party conference. Of course disabled people should be paid at least the minimum wage, just like everybody else, and I am profoundly sorry for any...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 9 - The person and his or her partner must be in qualifying paid work (21 October 2014)

Priti Patel: Good afternoon, Mrs Main, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. Clause 9 sets up the fourth eligibility condition, which is that the person and their partner, if they have one, must be in qualifying work when they make their declaration of eligibility. The purpose of that condition is self-evident as the purpose of the scheme is to give parents, as we have discussed, the support...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 1 - Entitlement to receive money towards costs of childcare (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Priti Patel: We touched on that last week in the evidence sessions. The scheme is about supporting all working families and providing support, in terms of child care provision and places. The overall system of child care support remains focused on those on lower incomes. Families in receipt of tax credits are already in receipt of more generous support as regards their child care costs. UC will extend to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: New Schedule (20 October 2014)

Tom Elliott: I thank the Member for that. I said that I welcome the working-together of Lord Morrow, the Minister and the Department of Justice in bringing forward what may be better proposals. I totally accept that point. On the matter of the first group of amendments, I acknowledge that a large number of them have been worked out between Lord Morrow and the Department of Justice, and, by and...

Social Justice Strategy — Motion to Take Note (16 October 2014)

Lord McAvoy: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness who secured this debate today. It is highly significant and very apt. I also congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Ely on an excellent maiden speech, which promises further interesting observations from the Bishops’ Bench. In introducing the debate, the noble Baroness mentioned IDS—we know who we are talking...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014)

Samantha Mann: No, we have not carried out specific research on this question. As employer-supported child care stands, an employee cannot sacrifice their pay below the national minimum wage that prevails for their age group, so any employee who is currently in receipt of the national minimum wage is excluded from employer-supported child care. The advantage of child care payments is that...

Business of the House (16 October 2014)

Angela Eagle: May I thank the Leader of the House for announcing next week’s business and February’s recess date? I note, however, that he has not announced a date for this Government to stagger to their painful and inevitable end—or should I say dissolution? Six weeks ago, the House gave a Second Reading to the Affordable Homes Bill, which mitigates the cruel effects of the bedroom tax....

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Online Access (Disabled People) (16 October 2014)

Chi Onwurah: Last month the charity Becoming Visible arranged for my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) and me to meet a group of profoundly deaf constituents. I was struck by how much they wanted to participate and engage and, in particular, to find jobs—but not to be paid less than the minimum wage—and also by how excluded they felt by the lack of...

Women and Equalities: Equal Pay (16 October 2014)

Jo Swinson: As I said in yesterday’s debate on the national minimum wage, great shock has been expressed in all parts of the House about Lord Freud’s remarks, which in no way reflect the opinion of the Government. It is therefore quite right that he has apologised in full for those remarks. It is right to set out on the record that people in all parts of the House believe that the minimum...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: NHS Services (Access) (15 October 2014)

Andrew George: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman and, of course, he has now had the opportunity to put that point on the record. However, he must recognise that as others have said—indeed, I made this point when I intervened on him—the Labour Government rolled out the red carpet with the policy of independent treatment centres, walk-in centres and other services, where the taxpayer paid...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: National Minimum Wage (15 October 2014) See 87 other results from this debate

Jo Swinson: We have had a good debate. There has been a lot more agreement than the political to and fro or the very politicised wording of the motion might suggest. The hon. Member for Dumfries and Galloway (Mr Brown) gave us a welcome reminder of the history of the national minimum wage and his experience on the Bill Committee, which had two overnighters to make the legislation happen. When he was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Joint Ministerial Committee (15 October 2014)

Margaret Curran: May I begin by paying tribute to the great Scottish journalist Angus Macleod, who died recently. On behalf of the Opposition, I send condolences to his family. During the referendum campaign, many voters expressed their deep desire for change in our politics and society. Does the Minister believe that the Joint Ministerial Committee should address the figures published today that show growing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 October 2014) See 6 other results from this debate

David Cameron: People do not have to look in the crystal ball with us; they can read the book. We have cut taxes for 26 million people in our country; we have taken 3 million people out of income tax altogether; and we have raised the personal allowance to 10,000, so that if someone is on the minimum wage, we have cut their income tax bill by two thirds. But we have been able to do that only because...

The document contains the Government’s interim evidence on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Education Bill:  Second Stage (14 October 2014)

Steven Agnew: I declare an interest as a director of NICIE. I suppose that, in the context of the Education Bill, it is a good opportunity for me to pay respect and indeed congratulations to my former teacher Michelle McIlveen, Chair of the Committee for Education. The House will already know that I had another illustrious teacher, Mr Sammy Wilson. He still gives me lectures, but I do not have...
