Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Iain McKenzie: Members from across the Chamber would probably describe the Chancellor’s statement as quite unbelievable, but for very different reasons. My constituents would certainly describe it as unbelievable because they have again listened to a Budget that is unable to hide the fact that, after five years of this Government, working families are worse off. The Chancellor claimed otherwise, but we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (4 Mar 2015)

Iain McKenzie: Let us try the Prime Minister on another one of his promises: to make energy companies put their customers on the lowest possible tariff. Too many of my constituents are still paying many hundreds of pounds more per year for energy. Will he again make that promise or is he content to wait until an incoming Labour Government in May fix this energy market?

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: My hon. Friend has started exactly where this debate should start—with who needs to benefit, which is young people who are looking for work but have been out of work for some time. Does he agree that it is not only about giving them jobs, but about giving them the opportunity for careers and long-term employment? The Conservative party says that it is the party of opportunity, after all.

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Compulsory Jobs Guarantee (11 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: My hon. Friend has referred to the importance of keeping young people in employment, and to the project that matches them with local employers. Constant contact with employers makes it possible to find out what new skills and career directions can benefit those who are placed with them. Is that not one reason for the success of the project?

Introduction of a Maximum Wage — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: The Minister mentions the revelations about HSBC in the last few days. Is that not a prime example of people taking excessive risks in pursuit of that elusive excessive pay?

Introduction of a Maximum Wage — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is abhorrent that millionaires, if not billionaires, are running large enterprises on the back of zero-hours contracts for their staff? In these days of austerity and food banks, they are running empires on zero-hours contracts.

Introduction of a Maximum Wage — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: The hon. Gentleman asked why the difference has increased so much in the past decade or so. Could it be that there is a bidding war for chief executives, with each company bidding more to attract a chief executive to stay for a minimum number of years before they move on?

Introduction of a Maximum Wage — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship again, Mr Streeter. I am pleased to have secured this debate, because in these continuing and challenging times financially, when austerity is still biting from the deepest recession we have known, it is fitting that we should look at fairness of wage. In these difficult times, we see many struggling, including hard-working families, with the...

Introduction of a Maximum Wage — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: My hon. Friend makes some very good and poignant points. We have seen several chief executives walk away from failure—abject failure—with handsome salaries and even handsome bonuses. It is difficult in these times, with the cost of living crisis, for hard-working people to stretch their budgets. We are seeing a decrease in real spend for them, and their income is being supplemented by the...

Introduction of a Maximum Wage — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend. I will go on to indicate some ideas that could be added to that of a maximum wage to assist people in the workplace. As I said, 80% of the public are said to support Government action to reduce the gap between the high and the low and middle-income earners. Growing differences in pay are neither fair nor proportionate, producing widening income...

Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill: Constitutional Law (2 Feb 2015)

Iain McKenzie: Many hon. Members, regardless of political party, have made much of continuing that engagement with young people and getting access to our schools in order to discuss with our young people who are about to be 16 the relevance of politics to their lives. We have seen an awakening among young people, so I encourage each and every Member to carry on with that. I am about to meet 100 young people...

Government Contracts (SMEs) — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Jan 2015)

Iain McKenzie: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies, for what I believe is the first time. I again congratulate the hon. Member for South Antrim (Dr McCrea) on securing this very interesting debate on public procurement—having heard myself say that, I may need to get out more if I find public procurement an interesting subject to debate. I have witnessed procurement in the public...
