[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Under-occupancy Penalty (23 Feb 2016)

Corri Wilson: I welcome this debate, which was secured by the hon. Member for Cardiff Central (Jo Stevens). We already know that the bedroom tax is nothing more than an ideological attempt to reduce the housing benefit bill and make better use of social housing stock by penalising low-income households deemed to be under-occupying their homes, but the problem of under-occupation will not be solved by...

[Nadine Dorries in the Chair] — Under-occupancy Penalty (23 Feb 2016)

Corri Wilson: I absolutely agree with the hon. Gentleman. People find themselves in a vicious circle and can never see the end. That is the problem. In other words, we are putting people through absolute misery for nothing. As we have heard, the Government tell us that discretionary housing payments are available to tackle the shortfall, but Shelter says that that provision is already overstretched. With...

Opposition Day — [16th Allotted Day] — Student Maintenance Grants: Cost of Public Transport (19 Jan 2016)

Corri Wilson: Transport is essential in providing people with access to work, learning, healthcare, food shops and leisure activities, especially in rural constituencies such as mine. But the reality is that the elderly, the young and the unemployed, who rely on public transport, struggle to reach hospitals, schools, jobcentres and the like.

Benefit Sanctions (2 Dec 2015)

Corri Wilson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries. The UK Government brought in the sanctions regime to tackle the perceived culture of worklessness, which they used to justify the introduction of sanctions and conditionality as measures to change people’s behaviour and to incentivise people to find work. However, as I have recently been involved in the Welfare Reform and Work...

Royal Assent: Childcare Bill [Lords] (25 Nov 2015)

Corri Wilson: I want to make some progress, if the hon. Lady does not mind. To truly focus unashamedly on children, the Government should be using this Bill to improve outcomes for all children, especially those who are more vulnerable or disadvantaged, and to support parents to work, train or study, especially those who need routes into sustainable employment and out of poverty. Instead, the Bill excludes...
