[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Green Deal (22 January 2015)

Tim Yeo: ...the Government’s efforts to call quits on cold homes and to stop wasting heat through buildings that are inadequately insulated and inefficiently constructed. Although we acknowledge that putting a completely new framework in place can take time, the green deal and the energy companies obligation are far from achieving the level of activity seen under previous energy efficiency...

Business of the House (22 January 2015)

Angela Eagle: ...’s top-line figures on jobs, but for millions of families up and down the country, there is a grim reality lurking beneath the headlines.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 January 2015)

Edward Miliband: The Prime Minister has raised taxes on ordinary families, he has raised VAT, and he has cut tax credits. The reality is that people are worse off on wages and they are worse off on taxes under this Prime Minister. The Prime Minister thinks everything is hunky-dory. Did he even notice this week the report that came out that said that half of all families where one person is in full-time work...

North Sea Oil and Gas (Employment) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (20 January 2015)

Michael Weir: ...000—and by Skills Development Scotland staff.

Viscount Clancarty: ...regeneration as well as the economy. Now, of course, the new weapon in the instrumentalists' armoury is well-being. Yet the bedrock of the arts in Britain since the war has been, in large measure, the work of the individual artist, whether visual artist, film-maker, novelist, poet, composer, singer-songwriter or others, including many whose true influence is yet to be felt because of the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Employment: North-west (19 January 2015)

Cathal Ó hOisín: ...price and an inquiry is ongoing into how that happened. In terms of the decentralisation of jobs to the north-west, we have a number of Civil Service jobs in the north-west in pensions and pension credit and those are very welcome. Some of the other Civil Service jobs, of course, are tenuous in their existence, including those in DHSSPS and in tax. Last year, of course, we lost the DVA...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Social Security Benefits: Immigrants (19 January 2015)

Priti Patel: Child Benefit and Child Tax Credit are "family benefits" under EU law. As such EEA nationals working in the UK are entitled to claim in respect of children living in other Member States. The Prime Minister has made clear that we need to change the rules around paying Child Benefit in respect of children who live in other European countries. This requires a change of EU law, so Ministers...

Nicholas Dakin: ...are just some of the world-class products produced by UK steelmakers in Scunthorpe and elsewhere. This debate represents a fantastic opportunity for all of us in this Chamber to unite behind those working in UK steelmaking and respond to the clarion call from the Community union and others that we stand up for steel today. The UK’s demand for steel is currently at 74% of the 2007...

Opposition Day — [12th Allotted Day]: Energy Prices (14 January 2015)

John Robertson: ...we will hear a great deal about the cost of living crisis from colleagues in all parts of the House, and it is right that we talk about stagnating wages, our national health service and the bedroom tax; but it is also right to talk about making the energy market work for ordinary people and addressing the scourge of fuel poverty. When we think of fuel poverty, we often think of the frail...

[Mr George Howarth in the Chair] — House of Lords Reform (14 January 2015)

Mark Durkan: ...directly accepted by the Government for the only time. The amendment inserted a reference to Her Majesty’s Customs and Revenue into the Bill.

The Government accepted the principle of one amendment but said that they would work up a better...

Direct Selling Industry (13 January 2015)

Nicholas Boles: ...to persuade a sceptical person on the doorstep that they should give us a little time so that they can listen to our message and understand what we are proposing is not the easiest thing in the world.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Charter for Budget Responsibility (13 January 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Guy Opperman: Absolutely nothing whatever. My hon. Friend and I are leading lights in the all-party apprenticeships group, which has seen fantastic work. I should probably make a declaration that I am the first MP to hire, train and then retain an apprentice as an office manager—not as an MP, I hasten to add—because she was doing a fantastic job. On what the Opposition intend to do, we have to...

Care Sector (13 January 2015)

Paul Burstow: ...2.8 million full-time equivalent jobs. The care sector is not a small adjunct to the NHS; it employs some 1.5 million people in 1.3 million full-time equivalent jobs, or about 6.4% of the entire work force.

Pension Schemes Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (12 January 2015)

Baroness Greengross: ..., and if they are poorly advised or sold poor-value products, the impact on pensioner poverty more widely could be significant. We have a narrow window of opportunity to ensure that these reforms work as intended because currently many people at the point of retirement still have the security of defined benefit pensions. Even so, the Pensions Policy Institute, of which I am privileged to...
