Orders of the Day: Clause 3 — Abolition of starting and savings rates and creation of starting rate for savings (28 Apr 2008)

Lyn Brown: Does the hon. Gentleman not accept that the number of people who will lose through the cutting of the 10 per cent. band has been over-hyped? Does he accept that some of the poorest people in this country are those who are on low wages but fall outside the benefit banding? The cut from 22p to 20p helps that most vulnerable group.

Orders of the Day: Clause 3 — Abolition of starting and savings rates and creation of starting rate for savings (28 Apr 2008)

Lyn Brown: I am very grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. About 40 per cent. of my constituents earn less than £19,000 a year. That means they will lose out from the 10p rate.

The message that I received from parents was that children would eat only the foods that they recognised and that, unfortunately, recognition came largely from television. The other problem that parents had was the accessibility of...

Housing (London) (23 Apr 2008)

Lyn Brown: I am concerned about sustainable communities and ensuring that people from all strata of society are able to live together. That is illustrated by the dilemma that exists in Newham. The east end of London is a desirable place to live and has fantastic neighbours—I should not like anyone to make suggestions to the contrary or decry that point—but it is cheaper to buy there than in the rest...

Housing (London) (23 Apr 2008)

Lyn Brown: In Newham, only 132 of 950 homes developed last year were for rented social housing. Only 6 per cent. of the homes developed in my borough, which is in east London, had three bedrooms or more. Given that we have 6,000 families in temporary accommodation and 30,000 families on the housing waiting list, that is not sustainable if we are to do anything to combat child poverty, to mention just...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Engagements (23 Apr 2008)

Lyn Brown: People on good salaries tend to ensure that they pay the correct amount of tax and take advantage of any tax concessions or tax relief available to them. People on low incomes do not.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Drugs (Prisons) (11 Mar 2008)

Lyn Brown: I thank the Minister for his answer and welcome today's announcement on the control of the supply of drugs. Can he confirm that the review will include the tightening of controls around the smuggling of items such as mobile phones into prisons? I understand that some prisoners use mobile phones in their cells to continue the criminal, drug-related activity that they were happily pursuing outside.
