Home Affairs and Communities (23 May 2005)

Ed Miliband: I am most grateful for the chance to address the House for the first time. It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Buckingham (John Bercow), who is known throughout the House for his independence of spirit, which we have seen on display again today, and which I am sure would be welcomed on these Benches. I also pay tribute to my hon. Friends the Members for Denton and Reddish (Andrew...

Oral Answers to Questions — Solicitor-General: Murder (16 Jun 2005)

Ed Miliband: I thank my hon. and learned Friend for his attention in the past few days to the case of John Barrett, who was given a life sentence for the manslaughter of Denis Finnegan, who lived in my constituency. Does he agree that the criminal justice system owes a massive apology to the Finnegan family for a systemic failure that meant that they were not told for two months about the halving of Mr....

European Union (30 Jun 2005)

Ed Miliband: Does my right hon. Friend agree that during our presidency our message should be that where we seek economic flexibility we do so not at the price of fairness but as a route and accompaniment to it, and that we in the UK are building our own version of a social model, drawing on good practice in Europe and elsewhere? Finally, I should like to tell my right hon. Friend that Doncaster will...

Orders of the Day — Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill (5 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Ed Miliband: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill (5 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: We all acknowledge the problems of housing, education and health that the right hon. Gentleman mentions, but it is a grotesque caricature to suggest that they are the result of asylum and immigration. The asylum budget consumes 0.3 per cent. of public expenditure. If the right hon. Gentleman wants to lead the major Opposition party in this House, he must put his claims in context.

Orders of the Day — Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill (5 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill (5 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: I was not actually bowing to the right hon. Gentleman but to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I take what the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden (David Davis) says about a limit, but I disagree with him about imposing an annual limit and I shall briefly tell him why. Setting an annual limit is a dirigiste system where the state decides on the number of people to be let in each year. What...

Ed Miliband: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Orders of the Day — Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill (5 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: I am listening carefully to the right hon. Gentleman's speech and I feel that he is tilting at a straw man—the straw man of completely open borders. I do not think that either side of the House advocates the extreme position that he is taking in his argument.

Orders of the Day — Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill (5 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for giving way again. The question is whether we set an arbitrary limit, which is the idea of a quota, or whether we have an approach, such as the set of policies that the Government propose, so as to shape the number of people who come into the country—something that can be reconsidered and revised. I do not see an inconsistency in our position.

Orders of the Day — Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Bill (5 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for giving way, but not for the manner in which he did it. I want to make a comparison with the late 1980s and early 1990s, when we saw a tightening labour market, leading to inflation taking off—I genuinely say this in a non-partisan way—and all the consequent problems that we saw in our economy. Does he not think that the continued buoyancy of...

Youth Policy (6 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: On the hon. Gentleman's fifth point, about the balance between schools and services outside school, would he agree that part of the key is to find ways of discovering what the young people themselves want? We might think that we know what young people want, but it would be far better to find innovative ways of asking them, and for that to be at the core of any youth strategy.

Tax Credits (12 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: rose—

Tax Credits (12 Jul 2005)

Ed Miliband: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. We are asking for simple intellectual honesty from him. Under the tax credit system, child poverty has fallen by about a million. Does he acknowledge that, and does he acknowledge the responsibility of tax credits in cutting child poverty? It is a simple question—yes or no?
