Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Mike Amesbury: Today’s debate has made it clear to all that rolling out universal credit, even in a slightly different timeframe and in a slightly different manner, will be a disaster for the most vulnerable.

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Mike Amesbury: That is a dreadful and, obviously, very sensitive case.

Friend the Member for Birmingham, Ladywood (Shabana Mahmood) referred to the explosion in casework in her constituency as a result of the universal credit roll-out. The hon. Member...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Mike Amesbury: I must make some progress. In among this procedure—the passion and politics of today’s debate—let us not forget that for millions of people universal credit is more than just a policy; it is a daily reality. That reality is insecurity. It is fear, hunger and, all too often, homelessness. Despite our political differences, I cannot believe that Members came into this House...

Overseas Electors Bill: Money (16 Oct 2018)

Funeral Poverty (11 Sep 2018)

Mike Amesbury: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter, and I welcome the Minister to his place. I thank my hon.

Mike Amesbury: With frontline police officers cut by over 22,000 since 2010 and police forces such as mine in Cheshire having their budgets slashed by a massive £56 million—that is a fact—surely the National Audit Office report exposing the crisis in funding for our police service is a wake-up call to the Treasury.

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Mike Amesbury: Despite being new at the Dispatch Box, I am under no illusion about the fact that people inside and outside this Chamber may shortly have plans to watch something other than my response to today’s debate. I will seek to respond in a manner that is timely, but that also does justice to the many thousands of people for whom the realities of universal credit are more than just a...
