We know where ministerial priorities will lie next May: more cuts to tax credits,...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 31 - Power to disqualify tax credit claimants from obtaining top-up payments (28 October 2014)

Priti Patel: ...that best suits their circumstances in as straightforward a manner as possible. That will include cases where a family’s circumstances change, as the hon. Lady said, such that they qualify for tax credits or universal credit instead.

DEFRA previously published guidance on the Recycling Credits Scheme in 2006 and this can be found at: http://archive.defra.gov.uk/environment/waste/localauth/part nerwork/documents/recyclingcreditscheme-guidance.pdf The guidance and legislation are clear that, further to...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 30 - Power to provide for automatic termination of universal credit (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Catherine McKinnell: The clause makes the same provisions as set out in clause 29, but with respect to universal credit rather than tax credits. We appreciate that universal credit has some way to go before it is rolled out beyond its current pilot areas, but the clause allows for regulations to provide for the automatic termination of a person’s universal credit award, or that of their partner, where that...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Clause 29 - Termination of tax credit awards (23 October 2014) See 2 other results from this clause

Alex Cunningham: The core purpose of this group of amendments is to broaden the provisions of the Bill to allow households in receipt of tax credits, but not receiving any support whatever for their child care costs in their tax credit award, to receive support from the tax-free child care scheme. Achieving that goal would entail several minor changes to the clauses dealing with the special rules affecting...

Priti Patel: ...a valid point. We do not want parents to—I do not like the term—fall foul. It is not about falling foul. The guidance we will provide is about simplicity and showing parents how the scheme works. That is the reason why we are working with parents and stakeholders on the design. That is incredibly important. We do not want parents to feel that they have done something wrong; on...

Alex Cunningham: ...that will be aligned with the start of the school year, or with some other date? Such a definition would not fit easily with section 6 of the Childcare Act 2006, which places a duty on local authorities to provide sufficient child care for working parents with disabled children aged up to 18 years, as far as practicable. In practice, the sufficiency duty is constrained by local...

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 terms of this measure and the change for class 2 national insurance contributions, the first point to make is...

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...
