Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...am sad that she will not be able to do so. I also thank my noble friend Lady Drake for her very interesting and wide-ranging comments. I thought she was right to pick up on the possibility of more work being done at the point of transaction in relation to personal debt. The idea of conditionality is a good one and perhaps we should think again. She was right to warn us that things are...

[Mr Dai Havard in the Chair] — Remploy Workers (26 November 2014)

Nia Griffith: Absolutely. The way in which the Government have implemented their tax credit reforms means that many working people have lost out significantly.

At the same time, they are hit by high fuel prices, which the Government...

NHS (Ttip): Universal Credit (25 November 2014) See 6 other results from this debate

Mark Hoban: I commend my right hon. Friend for the methodical way in which he is going about the implementation of universal credit.

There is a real danger, if there is no lift in those allowances—at least in line with inflation—that that will significantly reduce the real net incomes of low earners. Could the Minister tell your Lordships’ House what...
