Quality in the Built Environment (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ryan. I was initially only looking to intervene, so my contribution will be short. I want to offer my total support for my hon. Friend the Member for Bury St Edmunds (Jo Churchill). I cannot think of a speech I have agreed with more than the one she made. I say that as someone who represents Swindon, which has been one of the fastest...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McDonagh, and to follow the hon. Member for Wolverhampton South West (Eleanor Smith)—I have many happy childhood memories of visiting Wolverhampton. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Glasgow East (David Linden), who demonstrated his passion for this very important subject. He is clearly representing his constituents in a very...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, and in particular for his very kind words. It was always a pleasure working with him. He is certainly one of my favourite Members on the Opposition Benches in the way he engages and shapes things, although my comment might not help him in Scotland. The theory is that, if the assessments are done correctly, they are a judgment over a period of...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: That is an important intervention. Those records are already taken into consideration, but other things that I am about to come on to strengthen that point. On the high appeal rates, it would help if we could get permission to automatically access those health records. Far too many people are going through the system and only realise they need those pieces of supporting evidence after they...

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: None of us wants it go wrong ever—no one would argue for that. Four months is not acceptable. The hon. Lady has raised the issue. I suspect that our helpful Minister will diligently make a note and that the hon. Lady will be contacted shortly about that case. The majority of those out of work have been away from work for a very long time. They are desperate for an opportunity. As part...

Lotteries: Limits on Prize Values — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: My hon. Friend is giving a characteristically powerful and well-thought-out speech on this important subject. It is clear that we have allowed the national lottery to establish its market position, but as he highlighted, a huge number of different companies and societies offer products. It is an opportunity for the market to choose between different prizes, stakes and innovative games, and...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: Surely the hon. Lady recognises that universal credit is a transformational benefit for the vast majority of people going through the system. That is why staff are so passionate about it and feel empowered to make a difference to people’s lives. If we paused it, we would rob some of the most vulnerable people in society of the opportunity to improve their lives. Can she not see that it...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: I recognise those points, but one of the principles is that those who go to work are often paid in arrears. Surely it is better to help people to adjust to that while having the support of the named work coach and access to advance payments. Surely it is better to make this an easier process, rather than blocking people from having the opportunity to work at a later point.
