Did you mean: working tax credit?

Scotland Act 1998 (Modification of Schedules 4 and 5 and Transfer of Functions to the Scottish Ministers etc.) Order 2015 — Motion to Approve (26 February 2015)

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...relates—it is an extraordinary way of doing business. In the early 1960s, as has already been mentioned, when we changed the franchise from 21 to 18, we did it after having two commissions. The noble Lord, Lord McAvoy, may take credit for it, as a Labour Government did this. The Labour Government in those days were very concerned about consultation and constitutional propriety and...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 February 2015)

Charlie Elphicke: ...the failure to police risk, was at the heart of what went wrong with our banking system, so I completely reject the hon. Gentleman’s point. The Opposition say, “Let’s have a bankers’ bonus tax, so we can raise some money.” Yet again, we have heard that the Opposition want to spend it, this time on “a guaranteed paid starter job for young people who have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 February 2015) See 11 other results from this debate

Alex Maskey: ...will make only a few remarks. The second group concerns the issue of Assembly control over future regulations and so on, and the question of the reporting of the operation of the Act and how it is working out. The first three amendments are superfluous, given that the arrangements that will be put in place will enhance considerably and significantly the Assembly's control over the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 February 2015)

Steven Agnew: ...society. Amendment No 1 is about a disability addition payment. As the Bill is currently drafted, many families with disabled children will see a loss of approximately 26 a week to the universal credit that they receive under the current tax credit system. It is estimated that that will affect 100,000 families across the UK, and, on a proportional basis, that figure equates to...

Isil: European Council (23 February 2015)

David Cameron: ...questions by the airline. We need new arrangements with airlines to ensure that these at-risk children are properly identified and questioned, and the Home Secretary and Transport Secretary will be working with the airlines to bring this about. Whenever there are concerns, police at the border should be alerted so that they can use the new temporary passport seizure powers to stop people...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Block Grant: Reductions (23 February 2015)

Michaela Boyle: ...our resources by 15 billion, it is essential that we focus on delivering better outcomes from the resources that we have. We must move beyond bookkeeping to drive economic growth. That means working collectively to exploit every avenue that we have to build a progressive, strong revenue base that does not harm but strengthens our people, our competitiveness, our economic...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Small Businesses: Productivity (17 February 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: Government policy focuses on delivering growth which in turn depends on productivity in the longer term. We have already set out our four key growth ambitions: creating the most competitive tax system in the G20, making the UK the best place in Europe to start, finance and grow a business, encouraging investment and exports, and creating a more educated workforce. And through our...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (16 February 2015) See 2 other results from this debate

Simon Hamilton: I am not batting for the Treasury, but, on the point about information and transparency, particularly around tax take, I do not think that it was designed to produce regional figures. I think that the Treasury is grappling with the impact of devolution as well and, indeed, the demands in English regions for more transparency around these things. It is now starting to produce better...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Consideration Stage (11 February 2015) See 9 other results from this debate

Basil McCrea: ...I do not think that it is appropriate. If you take money off people, all that happens is that they disappear off the radar. That is not what this should be about. We need to resource universal credit properly and put more investment into looking after people. I will make a number of points that support that stance. In 2012-13, there was a 250% increase in sanctions on ESA claimants,...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Compulsory Jobs Guarantee (11 February 2015)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...: which businesses have signed up to the jobs guarantee, and how many jobs have they guaranteed to provide? In the absence of any answers, I will quote the OECD’s view of these kinds of make-work schemes. For the past 20 years it has demonstrated that such schemes are expensive and counter-productive. Its jobs strategy states that having “large deadweight losses, displacement...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Consideration Stage (10 February 2015) See 5 other results from this debate

Mickey Brady: No, the Member will not give way. The bedroom tax has been neutralised and will continue to be neutralised, so that is a good thing for those vulnerable people whom we have all been talking about today. I will move on to the discretionary payments in clauses 51 and 52. Basically, the social fund has been abolished in Britain and has gone to local authorities, some of which service it in a...

Welfare Assistance Schemes — Question for Short Debate (10 February 2015)

The Bishop of Truro: ...homeless people aged between 16 and 20. Many local authorities up and down the country have put in place innovative local schemes to help vulnerable residents, while evidence from local authority returns to the Department for Work and Pensions review found that 86% of funding allocated to local authorities was projected to be spent in 2014-15. The Children’s Society has worked...

Introduction of a Maximum Wage — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 February 2015)

Iain Wright: ...would rather go for a pint with the Culture Minister who is in the Chamber today. Alternatively, perhaps Treasury Ministers are engaged with tackling the issues of HSBC and the collusion with its clients over tax evasion. I deliberately make those two points, not for cheap party political point scoring, but because they touch on an important theme in today’s debate, namely a growing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Police (10 February 2015)

Richard Drax: ...to stand up for my police force and I will probably say things that are unpalatable to the Government, but I hope I shall say them in a balanced way, based on the evidence and the fact that I have worked closely over the past five years with the Dorset police force. In part, I shall speak personally about what I have seen and heard. Dorset police force has had an appalling history and has...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Consideration Stage (10 February 2015)

Dolores Kelly: .... That money did not come; it is going to come from the other public sectors. It is ironic that, on the day that we are discussing the Welfare Reform Bill, the media are full of stories about the tax avoidance used by the world's wealthiest companies and individuals in GB society. Last night, we saw the sorry spectacle of many of the wealthiest people tripping into one of the big Tory...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Social Security and Pensions (Statutory Instruments) (9 February 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Steve Webb: ...triple lock comes in. The right hon. Gentleman says that the benchmark is lower than it would have been if we had linked the pension to an index of inflation which the Office for National Statistics report says is discredited, so why is that an interesting comparison? He says that the Labour party rejects the move to CPI, but presumably he is not committing to RPI as he is not allowed to...

Council Tax: Low-income Taxpayers — Question (9 February 2015)

Baroness Hollis of Heigham: My Lords, the Government have introduced universal credit, which we support, which seeks to bring together and simplify means-tested benefits for people of working age in a single benefit. Why, then, are the Government sabotaging that by extracting council tax benefit from the system and turning it into a postcode lottery, where the amount of help you get depends not on your need but on the...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (9 February 2015)

Mark Harper: The Impact assessment for the Welfare Reform Act 2012 does not contain estimates over the next 5 years.
