Social Care (7 Dec 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I appreciate the opportunity to speak, Mr Deputy Speaker, as I missed the beginning of the Minister’s statement—my apologies. I concur totally with what a number of colleagues have said about the issues in the here and now. At the minute, there are significant issues for a lot of councils and a lot of care homes that cannot wait for a few years. The here and now must therefore be...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I totally endorse what the hon. Lady says about making work pay. What is her answer to my charge earlier that, from 2015, the Government have been taking £3 billion per annum from universal credit via the work allowance? Does that make work pay?

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: Like other hon. Members, I congratulate the hon. Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams) and the Labour party on securing the debate. I am delighted that the Secretary of State will provide the assessments to the Chairman of the Select Committee on Work and Pensions and to the Committee. That will be valuable, though it would probably have been more helpful to provide them...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I appreciate the hon. Lady’s intervention because it gives me the opportunity to remind the House of the numerous times on the Select Committee that I pointed out to the then Secretary of State that if he did not change things around the auto-payment default to landlords and the six or seven-week delay, the policy would be a disaster. Explaining why I still went through the Lobby leads...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I appreciate the hon. Gentleman’s intervention and he is quite right. My theory is that the then Chancellor expected the Liberal Democrats to do a little better in 2015, because he knew that we would not have allowed that £12 billion cut. However, we were not there to stop the Conservatives being absolutely idiotic on universal credit, and, frankly, on penalising the poor. The...

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for kicking off about the induction loop years ago, because I could not function as an MP in the Chamber without it.

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mr McCabe. I join other hon. Members in congratulating the hon. Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick) on securing the debate. I was chair of the all-party parliamentary group on deafness, but was rudely interrupted in 2015 when something else happened. It is a pleasure to be back and to serve as vice-chair of the APPG under the...

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I have seen that in call centres, in businesses and in numerous other areas. I used to be very involved with the Federation of Small Businesses, and I am sure I will be again now I am back. Lower churn is really important for businesses if a lot of their spend goes on employing people. At a later date, I will explain why it leads to lower churn, but it does.

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: Yes, certainly—sorry.

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: That is a very good example. I have no hearing on my left, so I could not hear the hon. Gentleman trying to intervene. Jim knows to punch me. The hon. Gentleman is right. There are issues to do with Access to Work. As it has expanded and cost a lot more money over the years, the Government—I am not chucking stones, as I know how challenging it is to work within the Budget...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I am grateful to the SNP for securing this important Opposition day debate, and appreciate the opportunity to speak in it. Like every other Member, I have been contacted by numerous WASPI women in my constituency. We all know how much of an impact this has had, and we all know just how upset, frustrated and deeply angry many WASPI women feel. Before I go on to ask the Government for...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: That is an important point about the many years of contributions and of back-breaking jobs. I return to the fact that we are all culpable; we know that in this Chamber— Conservative, Labour, coalition and, according to the Conservatives and Labour, the SNP as well. I do not say—because I would be lying to my constituents—that we are going to cancel the new retirement age...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I am going to continue. If there are Members who honestly say that to their constituents—well, I am not going to cast any slurs on anyone in the Chamber. This is having a shocking impact in some parts of the country and on many WASPI women and I believe that the Government have a duty to find some additional money to assist with the transition period. That is the right and the...

Maternity Safety Strategy (28 Nov 2017)

Stephen Lloyd: I welcome the Secretary of State’s statement, like many others in the Chamber. He talked several times about learning lessons. As he knows, a recent report has highlighted that in my own trust, the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, there were 19 stillbirths last year, which is a far higher percentage than in the rest of the UK. In the spirit of learning lessons, will he agree to someone...
