Recent appearances

  • Esa Underpayments: Business of the House 19 Jul 2018

    The Leader of the House will know that the housing crisis blights communities across our United Kingdom. Will she find time for a debate on the pay, terms and conditions of the senior management of housing associations? Money should be put into building decent and affordable homes for all our constituents, not filling bosses’ pay packets. I want to know what the Government can do about this.
  • Esa Underpayments 19 Jul 2018

    The DWP—not the staff—is quick to point out and to recover overpayments, but it takes rather longer to correct underpayments. That has taken six years in this case, and underpayments are at the highest estimated level to date. What actions will the Government take to put that right and, more importantly, to make sure that it does not happen again?
  • Exiting the European Union: Employment in Scotland 19 Jul 2018

    What assessment the Government have made of the effect on levels of employment in Scotland of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.
