Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ...fact that many Governments across the world support exports, including that of the United States of America. Why are our Government not doing more than they currently are doing?

Like many noble Lords, she also picked up on the visa problems in India, China and...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day]: Sustainable Development Goals (28 January 2015)

Mary Creagh: Shock, horror! The right hon. Lady’s multi-annual review in 2011 talked about that programme and found that it was working well. The payments I refer to were made between July 2011 and May 2013—on her watch. The commission said: “We are…deeply concerned that…a private company is managing a 30 million DFID programme without any formal contract...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Corporation Tax (Northern Ireland) Bill (27 January 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

David Gauke: The sense of direction in increasing corporation tax would be a mistake. I will not detain the House for long on this matter, but I also note that Labour’s pledge is to have the lowest corporation tax rate in the G7, which would allow it to increase corporation tax to 26%. That would be a major reversal of the progress made by this Government. However, I am sure you would like me to...

Commonwealth Immigration and Visas — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (27 January 2015)

David Hanson: .... Gentleman and I may part company—that we are part of the European Union and part of free movement within the European Union. Although we can apply certain restrictions on benefits such as child benefit and working tax credits, we still have free movement, which allows Britons to work and live in France and Germany, and allows Poles, Italians and others to work in Britain and...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Employment in Wales (27 January 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Chris Evans: ...West and South Pembrokeshire (Simon Hart). We nearly ran into each other this morning when we were on our daily jog. Only a fool would not welcome the news that there are 4,000 more people in work this year than there were last year. Even though Wales has the lowest employment rate of any region in Britain, at 68.7%, anybody gaining work can be only a good thing. However, the number of...

Lord Carlile of Berriew: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow such a cogent and interesting speech by the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, who has immense knowledge of this area of work as a result of his chairmanship of his committee, which produced an excellent report. I will return to what he said presently. I do not know how many of your Lordships have had the opportunity to watch the remarkable German film,...

Iain Duncan Smith: The universal credit programme is working well. It is now completing its roll-out to all the areas in the north-west, to all singles, couples and families. In the next month, it will start rolling out across the country, and that will bring universal credit to more jobcentres. By the time that process is completed, one in three jobcentres will be running universal credit. The key thing is to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (26 January 2015)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...a piece of paper when she wrote it. Honestly, here we go again Let me just remind the hon. Lady what her party left behind. It left a welfare budget that had “ballooned”—her word—by 60%. On tax credits alone, in the six years before the election, her Government spent 175 billion. They ballooned their welfare spending; unemployment rose; the economy crashed;...
