Nicola Sturgeon: ...opportunity to change course and build, not overnight but over time, a social security system that meets our needs—one that supports the needs of our economy by equipping people better for the world of work, one that supports the needs of individuals by ensuring that those who work get a decent wage for the job that they do and one that supports the needs of the vulnerable by...

Scottish Parliament: Economic Opportunities of Independence (12 August 2014)

Colin Beattie: If the number of women in work increased by just 6 per cent, tax revenues would rise by about 700 million. For those who are studying, we will certainly continue our policy of free education for Scottish students who study in this country, thus minimising the amount of debt that Scottish students have when they embark upon their careers. For those who come here to study, we will have...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland and Malawi (5 August 2014)

Humza Yousaf: ...have advice to give and rightly suggest that we should be a critical friend of Malawi, it is amazing that they can come together for an hour or so to praise one another in a giant love-in. I give credit to previous Administrations. I am a great fan of all the work that Jack McConnell and the Administration behind him did to re-establish the relationship with Malawi. To his credit, Lord...

European Union Committee: Report on 2013-14 (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (24 July 2014)

Lord Harrison: .... I am extremely sorry that he was not able to attend last night and I put that on record. I will try to abbreviate some of the things I have said. One of the important items was the financial transaction tax. We thoroughly examined and re-examined the threat to this country, and particularly to the City of London, which we have highlighted in terms of that tax. It could be really quite an...

HMRC (Scotland) (22 July 2014)

Gregg McClymont: ...arithmetical facts and then, I think, what we might judge an outcome to be for Scotland after leaving the UK and ending our membership of HMRC. We know as a fact that Scotland has significantly more tax-collecting jobs relative to the UK as a whole. Is there any reason to imagine that an independent Scottish state would need those surplus tax-collecting jobs relative to the size of the UK...

Child Benefit Entitlement (Disqualification of Non-UK EU Nationals): Backbench Business — Summer Adjournment (22 July 2014)

John McDonnell: .... May I tread into Northern Ireland again and talk about welfare reform there? The Government are seeking to impose their welfare reform legislation on the people of Northern Ireland, including the bedroom tax, the harsh benefit sanctions, the disaster of universal credit and work capability assessments, with all their adverse consequences. Sinn Fein has looked at the hardship that such...

Child Benefit Entitlement (Disqualification of Non-UK EU Nationals) (22 July 2014)

Philip Hollobone: ...thank you for giving me permission to move the motion? The purpose of the Bill, were it granted by the House, would be to end the absurd anomaly whereby any EU national can come to this country to work, leaving their children behind in their country of origin, and then British taxpayers pay child benefit to those children. I think that is wrong, the Prime Minister thinks it is wrong, most...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Child Care (21 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Nicky Morgan: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that. As a working parent, I sympathise with all working parents about the availability and affordability of child care. This Government take that extremely seriously. I have mentioned tax-free child care, but we have also introduced shared parental leave and we are increasing child care support under universal credit. It should also be noted that the latest...

Written Answers — Health: Universal Credit (21 July 2014)

Daniel Poulter: Healthy Start currently supports approximately half a million pregnant women and children under four in families claiming income based benefits and tax credits.

We are currently discussing with the Department for Work and Pensions the options for...

Backbench Business: Universal Postal Service (17 July 2014)

John McDonnell: ...Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Katy Clark). The irony 10 years ago was that the former general secretary of the union was then a Minister pushing the legislation through. The Communication Workers Union-associated Members had disappeared that evening; only a limited number of us were here, fighting and arguing in favour of amendments. It was late at night and I remember it well. We...

Finance Bill — Second Reading (16 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Flight: ...reflect the lack of power of this House to amend Finance Bills. It strikes me that now that this House is essentially an appointed and not a hereditary House, that is out of date. Much though I pay credit to the noble Lord, Lord MacGregor, and his committee, it is time for the issue of this House being able properly to consider financial legislation in the same way as the other place to be...

Welfare Reform (Cumbria) (16 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Esther McVey: ...points he has raised. It is important to put the situation into context. When the Government came into office, it was clear that the welfare system we inherited was in need of reform and was not working. For far too long, Governments had shied away from making any significant reform, and we had ended up with a complex system that had numerous add-ons. It was complicated for all concerned....

Bill Presented: Childcare Payments Bill (14 July 2014) See 13 other results from this debate

Andrea Leadsom: I thank all hon. Members who have spoken in the debate. Given the incredibly valuable contribution that this Bill makes to supporting working families, it is a great shame that no Opposition Back Benchers wanted to celebrate its arrival. It is fairly safe to say that the vast majority of Members who spoke agree that more needs to be done to support families with child care costs. It is also...

[Mr David Amess in the Chair] — Jobcentre Plus (10 July 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Nigel Mills: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate and to follow the hon. Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams). Members of the Work and Pensions Committee have been debating different aspects of the Committee’s work in various rooms this week, and it is a pleasure to do so again. Trying to think back six months to when the report was published was quite challenging, and it...

Business of the House (10 July 2014)

Andrew Lansley: ...or demonstrates heroism, they will not be penalised. I think that is very helpful. The hon. Lady seems to have taken to a habit of starting to re-run Opposition debates—in this instance, on universal credit. The House had an opportunity to debate universal credit on an Opposition motion, an opportunity to listen to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Universal Credit (9 July 2014)

Iain Duncan Smith: Again, we hear reason from the Government Benches. My hon. Friend is absolutely right. It is necessary to roll out the programme carefully so that it works, and so that we do not end up, as we did with tax credits, with 400,000 people not getting any money and going off to food banks and getting food parcels. That is the shambles that the Labour party created. We will not repeat it.
