Zero-Hours Contracts (27 May 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Nicholas Boles: I am happy to look at that. If I may, I want to extend to the hon. Gentleman, as well as to hon. Members from all around the House, an invitation to bring me specific examples of bad practice—ideally with the identities of the employer, but if not, nevertheless with such examples—and I will try to find out what we can do about such practices if we have not already banned them, as...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (27 May 2015) See 5 other results from this debate

Rob Marris: First, I should apologise to you, Mr Speaker. I stepped out of the Chamber but got a bit interrupted and my return to my place was delayed by five years. I am pleased to be back and in a moment I will remind hon. Members of what I was speaking about five years ago, when I was rudely interrupted—by democracy, of course—because it has a curious echo. A Conservative Member, whom I...

Outlawries Bill: Queen’s Speech (27 May 2015)

My Lords and Members of the House of Commons: My Government will legislate in the interests of everyone in our country. It will adopt a one nation approach, helping working people get on, supporting aspiration, giving new opportunities to the most disadvantaged and bringing different parts of our country together. My Government will continue with its long-term plan to provide economic...

Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith: “My Lords and Members of the House of Commons, my Government will legislate in the interests of everyone in our country. They will adopt a one-nation approach, helping working people get on, supporting aspiration, giving new opportunities to the most disadvantaged and bringing different parts of our country together. My Government will continue with their long-term plan to provide...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Final Stage (26 May 2015)

Mervyn Storey: I beg to move That the Welfare Reform Bill [NIA 13/11-15] do now pass. Before proceeding, first of all, I express our sincere thoughts, best wishes and prayers to the First Minister and my party leader, Peter Robinson. We continue to remember Peter at this time, as well as Iris and the family, and we trust and pray that Peter will make a speedy recovery. No one more than I knows how much we...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Block Grant (14 April 2015)

Dominic Bradley: Go raibh míle maith agat, a Phríomh-LeasCheann Comhairle, as an deis labhairt ar an rún seo. Thank you very much for the opportunity to speak to the motion. There is no doubt about it that 7 May is fast approaching, and, as we know, there is much uncertainty about the type of government that will be formed at Westminster. Indeed, it seems likely that Northern Ireland parties...

Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 March 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Frank Doran: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Mr Lansley). We served together on the House of Commons Commission for a number of years and learned a lot about each other. I was first elected in 1987. I have to say it was an accident, because I did not expect to win. I took a Conservative seat that had only ever once been won by my party, when Donald Dewar won it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Zero-hours Contracts (26 March 2015)

Jo Swinson: I wholeheartedly disagree with the hon. Gentleman. I am proud that we are taking forward measures in that Bill to protect workers on zero-hours contracts. I am very proud of the work we have done to enforce the national minimum wage, which of course is one of the key protections for workers on low pay. Of course we always need to keep employment law under review, and the employment status...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (25 March 2015) See 5 other results from this debate

Lord Davies of Oldham: My Lords, I begin by craving the indulgence of the House. My noble friend Lord Stevenson caught my ear; I was present at the memorial service, and the defence of the arts by Lord Attenborough was a brilliant speech, reprinted in the programme. On either side of it were sayings from Mahatma Gandhi and a Shakespeare sonnet. As far as I was concerned, the service was a work of art in itself on...

Modern Slavery Bill — Commons Amendments (25 March 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Bates: I do not want to get this wrong. I probably need to look to my left for some inspiration, which I have relied on heavily during the passage of the Bill, because this is at such a critical stage. It is pointless to say, as I normally do, that I will write to the noble Baroness. It is a very reasonable question and we should have an answer to it. On employment tribunals, overseas domestic...

Bill Presented: Clause 1 — Charge and rates for 2015-16 (25 March 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Ian Swales: I know that the shadow Minister was not a key part of the previous Government, but does she believe that the right shoulders to bear the burden were those of people on minimum wage, who were paying £1,000 in tax? The highest rate of income tax was 40% for every single day but one that Labour sat on the Government Benches.

Priti Patel: It is a great pleasure to close this debate on Second Reading. I would like to thank everyone who has spoken for their contributions, particularly the hon. Member for Edmonton (Mr Love), who has served this House with such distinction. I wish him well. We have had an interesting debate. I should like to set it in the context of the Chancellor’s Budget last week. A number of points...

Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Clause 3 — Companies: duty to publish report on payment practices (24 March 2015)

Toby Perkins: The Minister questioned whether the amendments will have the support of the Opposition. They will do, of course; we proposed a good deal of them, so it would be rather foolish for us not to be supporting them at this stage. The Minister is right to say the Bill arrives back in this House in stronger order than it left it. It looks far more like the kind of small business Bill I was talking...

Amendment of the Law (23 March 2015) See 10 other results from this debate

Chris Leslie: Perhaps we can ask Hansard for a transcript later. I would certainly be interested to read that. When we look at the Chancellor’s plans—and those of the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions—we see that he is thinking about cutting for the next three years at twice the level we have seen over the past three years. The Chancellor realised how toxic his plans were shortly...
