National Health Service and Care Sector Workers (Credit Union and High Cost Credit): Clause 144 — Amount of financial penalty for underpayment of national minimum wage (19 Nov 2014)

Brian H Donohoe: I am talking not so much about the living wage or the minimum wage as the number of hours people work a week. People cannot pay their keep if they are not working a particular number of hours a week. Regardless of what they are being paid an hour, they need the hours. The introduction of zero-hours contracts has surely been the biggest mistake.

National Health Service and Care Sector Workers (Credit Union and High Cost Credit): Clause 144 — Amount of financial penalty for underpayment of national minimum wage (19 Nov 2014)

Brian H Donohoe: In my constituency—I am sure the same is true of my hon. Friend’s constituency—the words “zero-hours contract” did not exist until very recently.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (19 Nov 2014)

Brian H Donohoe: The right hon. Gentleman is also responsible for the list of Ministers’ interests, and it is some time since that was done—I wonder when it will be.

Friend the Prime Minister is still a honorary member of the Irvine Burns club, and whether the Minister still lists the Blind Trust as part of his financial interests, and whether we can see...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill — [1st Allocated Day] (18 Nov 2014)

Brian H Donohoe: Surely at the very kernel of any amendment is the fact that we are losing pubs every week right now.

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: National Minimum Wage (15 Oct 2014)

Brian H Donohoe: This is an increasingly important subject. We must also consider the fact that north of the border, as my hon.
