Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: We introduced universal credit because we needed a system of welfare in this country that encouraged rather than discouraged people into work, that made sure that work always pays and that was a simpler system than the legacy system that we were left by the Labour party—remember the legacy system of the Labour party. It meant that we had individuals being paid £100,000 a year on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: The right hon. Gentleman started his question by talking about constituency cases. I remember the single mother who came to see me as her Member of Parliament when Labour was in government who told me that she wanted to get into the workplace and provide a good example to her child, but the jobcentre had told her that she would be better off on benefits. That is the legacy of the Labour party.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: What the Government are doing is delivering a system that does give support to vulnerable people, but encourages people to get into the workplace, because we know that work is the best route out of poverty. However, if the right hon. Gentleman believes that universal credit needed some change, why, when we made changes such as reducing the waiting days for payment and bringing in a housing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: The right hon. Gentleman talks about challenging the burning injustices. That is about setting up the race disparity audit, which says what public services do and how people from different communities in our country are treated by them. It means saying that nobody in this country should be stopped and searched on our streets because of the colour of their skin—that was me as Home...

This is absolutely vital. It is our duty to keep people safe but it is also our duty to ensure that victims are properly protected and listened to. That is why we are taking...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: What we have done is created an economic environment where 3.3 million people are in work. We now see the number of children in workless households at the lowest level ever. We now also see, through what we have done, an increase in the national living wage. We have ensured that we have taken 4 million people out of paying income tax altogether. Over 30 million people have received a tax cut....

Theresa May: The right hon. Gentleman mentions Brexit. Of course, we are working to get a good Brexit deal for the whole of the United Kingdom, including Scotland.

Theresa May: I do indeed remember the visit that I made to Clacton in 2014, where I was very pleased to meet Caroline Shearer and hear about the anti-knife crime work she had done and the charity she had set up in memory of her murdered son, Jay Whiston. On the issue of rail, Greater Anglia will indeed be introducing a whole new fleet of trains, which will be delivered from the middle of next year. They...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: The figures show that the proportion of the workforce on low pay is actually at its lowest level. That is as a result of the changes we have made in relation to the economy and the balanced approach we have taken. If the hon. Lady if worried about people living in Grimsby, the answer is not a Labour Government, with £500 billion of extra borrowing, fewer jobs, higher taxes and people...

Theresa May: I am sure we all have doubts about the objectivity of the reporting on Russia Today, which remains a tool of propaganda for the Russian state. Decisions about appearing on Russia Today are a matter of judgment for each individual, but they should be clear that they risk being used as propaganda tools by the Russian state. I know that that view is shared by other Members of this House,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Sep 2018)

Theresa May: We are very clear that we need to have a link between the future relationship and the withdrawal agreement, but we are a country that honours our obligations.
