Jeremy Lefroy: ...neighbours can run much smaller consultant-led units but we cannot, especially when, as with our county hospital, a hospital is part of a large trust that could surely provide such services on a network basis.

John Glen: ...when we discuss this matter. Let me therefore point out that we focus extensively on the issues of low pay, benefit administration, benefit delays, hardship payments, short-term benefit advances, tax credits, mandatory reconsideration and benefit sanctions.

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Housing Benefit (Abolition of Social Sector Size Criteria) (17 December 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Kate Green: Every time we debate the bedroom tax, it is clear that it is not achieving what Ministers said it would.

Pension Schemes Bill — Second Reading (16 December 2014)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: The noble Lord is right if he is inferring that there is a tax saving. Estimates have been made, but of course we cannot be certain of them.

I think we will see that it is perfect in terms of providing what...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Immigration: Poland (16 December 2014)

Lord Bates: The UK is open to the brightest and best, but immigration must be controlled in the national interest. Across government, we are working hard to bring net migration down and address the factors which draw people to Britain for the wrong reasons. Our reforms have cut net migration from outside the EU by nearly a quarter since 2010 - close to levels not seen since the late 1990s. We have...

Lord Borwick: ...building homes there. Garden cities will certainly have less air pollution than bigger city centres, where levels of dangerous PM2.5 particles are much higher.

Lord Newby: ...children can pay into a childcare account and thus increase the amount of government top-up that they can receive. I know that that does not go as far as he would like because he would like the proportion of tax benefit to increase. The challenge here, as with many other potential changes to the scheme, is one of cost. My colleague in another place, the Exchequer Secretary, is looking at...

Meg Hillier: Many people in my constituency who are in work are trapped in low-paid minimum wage jobs. Often they are not able to add to the hours that they work in order to earn more, and they rely on the state for prop-ups with housing benefit and tax credits. When will the Chief Secretary to the Treasury understand the cost of living crisis in the country, and what will the Government do about it?

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Small Business Saturday (4 December 2014)

Andrew Bingham: ...-business for 20-odd years and I can assure Members that running one is not easy. Employing only a handful of people, as I did, I used to have to deal with customers of all different sizes and types. I was salesman, credit controller, debt control, buyer and human resources manager all at once, and many small business operators are in the same boat. To do all those roles, they have to work...
