Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 12 - The person and his or her partner must not be in a relevant childcare scheme (21 October 2014)

Catherine McKinnell: ...will be most beneficial to them.’ Clause 12 covers the seventh eligibility condition, providing that a person or their partner cannot be in another relevant child care scheme, including employer-supported child care, universal credit or directly contracted child care. That ties in with clauses 62 and 63, which provide for the restricting of the employer-supported child care scheme to...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 11 - Neither the person nor his or her partner may be claiming universal credit. (21 October 2014) See 6 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: Clause 11 sets out the sixth condition of eligibility, which is that the person and their partner, if they have one, cannot be claiming universal credit. The clause provides that when a person makes a declaration of eligibility under the scheme, they must not be due any award and must not have made a claim to receive universal credit that would be payable during the entitlement period. In...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 10 - The income of the person and his or her partner must not exceed limit (21 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

Catherine McKinnell: ..., and a lot of the evidence we received pointed to these questions being raised with and hopefully at least considered by the Government, if not responded to. We need to ensure that this additional tax expenditure achieves the maximum possible. The Government’s own stated aim is to ensure that it makes a difference to parents for whom, at the moment, it simply does not add up for...

Public Bill Committee: National Insurance Contributions Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Gillian Wrigley: Thank you for inviting me here today. Perhaps I can give a bit of background about how universal credit works. If you are an employed person, such as I am, universal credit depends on both my family circumstances and the amount of net income that I receive from my employer on a monthly basis. In other words, what is looked at is my income after tax and national insurance...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 5 - Entitlement periods (21 October 2014)

Lucy Powell: ...;. May I first put on record our gratitude to the Minister for the concessions that she has made on the entitlement periods for the self-employed? They will prove to make the measure much more effective, especially for those people who work, for example, a lot in the summer and less in the winter; those who have what was described in the oral evidence sessions as a “lumpy”...

Public Bill Committee: National Insurance Contributions Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014)

..., but again those are significantly higher than four years ago. We need to look at how HMRC can design its systems so that people do not have to phone up or write as often as they do. In that sense, the tax system could be simpler and not require as many communications. In terms of this measure and the change for class 2 national insurance contributions, the first point to make is...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 1 - Entitlement to receive money towards costs of childcare (21 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: ...accounts are simple to operate for parents and child care providers, while giving parents the certainty that their money will be secure. On the hon. Lady’s point on families having access to the scheme, tax-free child care will be available for up to 1.9 million families. Approximately 1 million families will be better off under the scheme. It is different from existing...

Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 October 2014)

Angela Watkinson: When you give advice about how to make best use of pension savings, does it include the comparative advisability of whether a person should continue to pay existing debt—mortgages, credit cards or other loans—or whether they should use capital from their pension pot to pay it off, and what impact that will have on their benefit entitlements in the future? I have a separate...

The Chairman of Ways and Means took the Chair as Deputy Speaker (Standing Order No. 3) — European Union (Referendum) Bill (17 October 2014)

John Hemming: ...would have thought that we would be encouraging people to come here to sell The Big Issue, yet by selling that paper or running a nonsensical or otherwise unprofitable scrap metal deal, people qualify for tax credits and get a lot more money from them than they do from The Big Issue or whatever it may be. People migrate here to be officially poor. Nobody would ever have thought that was...

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

Lord Kirkwood of Kirkhope: ...security in the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Ely. I will sign him up as a member of this distinguished band and I look forward to his contribution. The church does absolutely excellent work in this House, dealing with what some people choose to call the “undeserving poor”. It is right and proper that it should, and it does it well. The House is indebted to it. I should...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

Priti Patel: The core purpose of the Bill is obviously to provide support to working families with child care costs. I do not think we should just look at projections—I hear what you say about research and what the Resolution Foundation has said, but we cannot just look at it in terms of one particular part of the population. We are still providing funding through universal...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witness (16 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Dr Stewart: Yes. Some evidence that we have seen, certainly for the UK, suggests that as you see the working tax credit become more generous, you see the fees going up. I have not seen any robust evidence, because it is difficult to do because you have no counterfactual about what would have happened to the child care fees. There are more studies in Australia, but they certainly...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

...Alakeson: We are quite supportive of the single provider solution; it seems to be one way of simplifying the system for parents. It was unclear whether choice of voucher provider or choice of tax-free child care system was really adding much in terms of parental choice. In terms of the policing and enforcement of the system, one of the questions I had, which links back to the parity with...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 3 other results from this clause

...whatever online guidance they can access to help them through the myriad complexities that are child care benefits. It has to be said at this point that our specialism is not the benefits available to working parents. However, I believe from hearing anecdotally from experts that it is a minefield—an extremely complex area. We know that if an employee puts in an eligibility claim, and...

Wales Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (15 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Wigley: ...I will also speak to Amendments 22 and 23, all standing in the name of my noble friend Lord Elis-Thomas and myself. Amendments 21 and 22 are aimed at allowing the Welsh Government to introduce new tax credits as well as devolved taxes. That would mean that Wales was able to help target areas that require economic stimulation in one form or another. Paragraph 4.6.8 of the Silk...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: National Minimum Wage (15 October 2014) See 12 other results from this debate

Rachel Reeves: ...country feel left behind by our economy and left out of our politics, it is important that the House of Commons devotes its attention to the issues faced by millions of people in our country who work just as hard as everyone else, doing jobs that are vital to our economy and country—as Members, including my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton West (Julie Hilling) have pointed...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 October 2014)

Edward Miliband: We can see the record: higher VAT; cuts to tax credits; hitting working families; and the bedroom tax. That is the record of this Prime Minister. He cannot be straight about his tax plans, so perhaps he can be straight about his plans for tax credits. Can he confirm that as a result of his plans a one-earner family with two children on 25,000 a year will lose almost 500 a year?

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses - Sam Royston and Alison Garnham gave evidence. (14 October 2014) See 7 other results from this clause

Sam Royston: Sure. The first thing to say is that we welcome any additional support with child care costs to help families ensure that work pays. We have three principal concerns about tax-free child care. The first is the balance of support with child care costs and additional money found for helping families with child care costs. We are slightly concerned, as an organisation that works...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

...about the complexity and how that will be communicated to people, what guidance will be available, and better off calculators. We are also concerned about the complexity not just of universal credit and tax credits but of other things like passported benefits, and about how everything will have to be taken into account to work out the position. We have some concerns about the self-employed...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

...is additional help. Where an amount of money has to be spread very thinly, I am sorry that it is not absolutely focused on the poorest families; it is a shame that we have gone above basic rate taxpayers on this. I am very anxious about the loss of the employer link, which I would be happy to talk about later. Although Anne said that it is simple, I think it is simple if you qualify, but...
