Where those criteria apply, pupils are given additional financial support towards school transport. The policy amends...
- [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] — Older Industrial Areas: Economic Disparities (25 June 2015)

Friend the Member for Easington...

Lord Liddle: ..., does the Minister agree that whatever the intellectual merits of different definitions of poverty, if the Government proceed with what is widely rumoured in the press to be £5 billion of cuts in working families’ tax credits, the impact of that will inevitably be to increase very considerably the amount of child poverty in this country?

Chris Leslie: ...opportunities for high-quality skills, as a more positive route out of poverty. But what does this Secretary of State do when faced with an end to the progress in reducing child poverty? He threatens to cut £5 billion from the tax credits of children, which would mean 3.7 million working families losing, on average, £1,400 a year. That will not address child poverty; it will add...
- Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (24 June 2015)
Baroness Hollis of Heigham: ...effectively removed the responsibility for housing from a district council to a combined authority and would have to start inspecting houses of multiple occupation and all the rest of it to make it work. That would leave district councils virtually non-existent. That is my problem with Amendment 36A. Although I am sure that Amendment 36B is well intentioned, my problem is with...
- Free Childcare and Nursery Providers — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (24 June 2015)
Sam Gyimah: ... the Member for York Outer (Julian Sturdy) for the opportunity to have this debate. It is timely in the light of the Government’s commitment to double the amount of free childcare available for working families. Like him, I am a father; I have a 14-month-old who goes to nursery, so I experience the childcare market from the point of view of a parent, not just a politician sitting in...

Arlene Foster: ..., on page 23 it shows the very basic information that needs to be understood in relation to how a Budget is set. It sets out very clearly that Northern Ireland businesses and the public pay taxes to the United Kingdom Government. That Government then allocates a Budget to Northern Ireland, as it does for Scotland and Wales. In our case, we benefit to the tune of an extra £10...

Harriet Harman: ...to be stepped up. On another issue, in his speech on Monday the Prime Minister said: “There’s…nothing progressive about robbing from our children”, but is it not inevitable that cuts in tax credits for working families, unless employers raise their wages immediately, will mean that children are worse off?

- Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (23 June 2015)
Lord Howarth of Newport: ...larger proportion of our population now uses cannabis than in those days. Britons are among the largest consumers of controlled drugs in Europe. Therefore, there is evidence that the system is not working. Prohibition is based on a false analysis of supply and demand. Where supply is interdicted, demand does not consequentially fall. Prices rise and the profits of criminals rise, but...

Patsy McGlone: Thanks for giving way. In fact, you made the very point that I was going to make, which is that that very element of what the Tories seem to be about at the moment is directed at those who receive tax credit for their children and are currently in work. The outcome of that will be that the working poor will become poorer.

Gentleman back to the issue of tax credits. We have had many Labour Members going on about tax credits. I looked up how tax credits were increased under a Labour Government.

- Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Social Landlords (Direct Rent Payments) (22 June 2015)
Iain Duncan Smith: As I have said, the problem that we inherited was a tax credit system that rewarded people for doing the wrong things, and parked people who wanted to do better on benefits that allowed them not to do any more hours of work. Universal credit changes that: every hour of work pays. Labour has opposed that root and branch, but then it has opposed every other welfare reform that we have...
