Lindsay Roy: As several of my hon. Friends have already said, almost 500,000 women aged between 59 and 60 will not qualify for the new state pension while men of the same age will do so. How does the Minister justify penalising 700 such women in my constituency in that way?

Remploy Marine Fife (15 Jan 2013)

Lindsay Roy: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath (Mr Brown) on securing this vital debate. I fully endorse the thrust of his argument and commend his analysis of the key issues that face us in securing Remploy’s survival and possible viability. I plan to underpin the case for a more flexible, generous and co-ordinated approach in the transition to financial...

Remploy Marine Fife (15 Jan 2013)

Lindsay Roy: Absolutely. I am very grateful for that contribution. That is entirely the case that we are making. We want to make sure that all parties concerned do everything they can to support the disabled and disadvantaged in our community, as that is a hallmark of a civilised society. A viable rescue package is possible, whether it is an employee buy-out, a social enterprise or a private sector...

Lindsay Roy: Can the Minister tell us what lessons he has learned from this debate?

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Food Banks (Scotland) (19 Dec 2012)

Lindsay Roy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts, as we debate what is fast becoming a national disgrace—I refer to the widespread growth of poverty in our society, and in Scotland in particular, and the consequent mushrooming of food banks throughout the country, both formally and informally, via charities, churches and voluntary organisations. As constituency MPs, we know what...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Food Banks (Scotland) (19 Dec 2012)

Lindsay Roy: Absolutely. I could not agree more. The only organisation or government I know of that is beginning to take a significant interest in this is Labour-controlled Fife council, for whose area I am MP. In particular, I want to focus on the legitimate needs of the increasing number of constituents who are marginalised in society, many of whom keep a low profile due to the perceived stigma and the...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Food Banks (Scotland) (19 Dec 2012)

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Food Banks (Scotland) (19 Dec 2012)

Lindsay Roy: I welcome my hon. Friend’s intervention, which stressed the situation I have been highlighting. The Governments are strong on rhetoric, but short on action in dealing with the human tragedy that is seeping through our communities, where payday loan sharks capitalise on fuel, clothing and food poverty. We are told again and again that we have caring and compassionate Governments and we are...

[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Food Banks (Scotland) (19 Dec 2012)

Lindsay Roy: It is certainly higher, but the SNP Government promised to eliminate fuel poverty by 2016, and we are not aware of what they have done. Most recipients of food from food banks are working strivers, as well as people on benefits. They have had their pay cut or their hours reduced, while others have had their benefits slashed or delayed, which has placed tremendous pressure on families. Others...
