Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Ivan Lewis: The Prime Minister’s announcement that the Government will not apply the local housing allowance cap to supported housing is a welcome U-turn.

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Ivan Lewis: This is not the place to repeat fake news. That was not the record of the last Labour Government.

If they can find £1 billion simply to save themselves through a pact with the...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Ivan Lewis: The test of the Budget should be whether it tackles the big challenges facing our country now and in future.

Housing Benefits (18 to 21-Year-Olds) (7 Mar 2017)

Ivan Lewis: Last Thursday, as part of the work I am doing on behalf of my right hon.

Does the hon. Lady not understand...

Supply and Appropriation (Anticipation and Adjustments) Bill: Bus Services Bill [Lords] (1 Mar 2017)

Ivan Lewis: Having agreed to insert free bus passes for 16 and 17-year-olds in our manifesto in the run-up to the next general election, will my hon. Friend also agree to insert some words saying that we will allow local authorities, if appropriate, to set up their own municipal bus companies? It is purely a matter of ideology, which is why we had deregulation of buses in the first place. The Government...
