Income Tax (Charge) (12 Mar 2020)

Steve McCabe: .... The only difference is that I am prepared to acknowledge that, while my opponents have spent the past 10 years condemning the action Gordon Brown took. Like my right hon. Friend the Member for East Ham (Stephen Timms), I welcome the Chancellor’s decision to remove the minimum income floor for self-employed people attempting to access universal credit, but surely that is tantamount to...

Income Tax (Charge) (11 Mar 2020)

Sam Tarry: ...course the year that a young and fresh-faced MP entered Parliament for the very first time—my predecessor, Mike Gapes. I would like to pay tribute to Mike not just because, like me, he is a West Ham fan, but because he served our community so diligently. He was hard working and strove every day to assist the wonderful people of Ilford South, running his advice surgery and helping tens of...

Social Security Benefits: Claimant Deaths (24 Feb 2020)

Debbie Abrahams: ...servants that their policies to assess people for out-of-work disability benefits were putting the lives of vulnerable claimants at risk. More recently, as my right hon.

Leaseholders and Cladding (12 Feb 2020)

Social Security (10 Feb 2020)

Stephen Timms: ...by members of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Commission on Housing. We called on one of my constituents who lived with his wife and child in a single small, squalid room above a shop on East Ham High Street. Both those parents work in the NHS part-time, but this room was all they could afford. Their four-year-old son was running around when we visited—a very lively youngster. His...

Friends the Members for Sheffield, Brightside and Hillsborough (Gill Furniss), for Manchester Central (Lucy Powell), for West Ham (Ms Brown) and for Edmonton (Kate Osamor) for the moving testimonies of their constituents.

Persecution of Christians (6 Feb 2020)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: This has been an excellent debate, and I will shortly do my best to summarise the most memorable contributions. I am glad that my new colleague, my hon.

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Luke Hall: ...principles she believes in and for health services, children’s services and workers’ rights. From her maiden speech, her constituents will be assured that she will be a passionate and doughty champion for them in this House. My hon. Friend the Member for North Norfolk (Duncan Baker) talked about his 14,000 majority, which I am sure all of us are jealous of. He started his speech by...

Gavin Newlands: Thank you, Ms Nokes. It is great to see you in the Chair for the first time; I look forward to many more such occasions. I congratulate the right hon.

I am delighted that we are having this debate because...

Homelessness (29 Jan 2020)

Alex Cunningham: I will not, no. My right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) lost his own dad to alcoholism. We heard a longer speech from him on this subject in Westminster Hall just a few months ago. He spoke of a homeless person in his area dying every 10 days, which he said was a moral disgrace. No wonder he was angry. The hon. Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge)...

Holocaust Memorial Day (23 Jan 2020)

Stephen Morgan: ...in that commitment. It has been a privilege to hear 20 poignant and emotional speeches today from hon. Members of all parties, none more so than that of my hon.

Members Sworn (17 Dec 2019)

Lindsay Hoyle: ...or affirm, they must not sit during any debate or vote in any Division of the House, and they will not receive any salary—a big temptation. The arrangements for swearing in are as set out in the Chamber information sheet and a guidance note is also available from the Table Office and the Vote Office. I propose to call first the Father of the House, then members of the Cabinet, then...

Valedictory Debate (5 Nov 2019)

Roberta Blackman-Woods: It is an honour to follow the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton), with whom I worked well when she was a Minister. She has a strong interest in Durham. Although he is not in his place, I wish to pay tribute to the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt), who was a brilliant and dedicated Minister, and this House will really feel his loss. I wish at the...

Lord Hendy: ...between the two. I also thank the amazing staff of the House who have been unfailingly helpful to me in giving me advice, telling me where to go and so forth. It was not quite the same in East Ham magistrates’ court when I started my practice at the Bar many decades ago. However, my life in crime was cut short because I spent the past 42 years in the practice of labour law—the law of...

Child Maintenance Service: Payment Recovery from Absent Parents (2 Oct 2019)

Justin Tomlinson: ...the regulations that we passed to strengthen our ability to investigate and enforce. Hon. Members have rightly raised areas where enforcement has not been quick enough.

Uk Shared Prosperity Fund: British House Building Industry (5 Sep 2019)

Alex Cunningham: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) for securing the debate through the Backbench Business Committee. She is right to highlight these issues. Surely, in this world of inequality, individuals should not be lining their own pockets with millions of pounds in bonuses taken from taxpayers’ money. Our focus needs to be on all our people, not just the...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Quin: ...in her speech yesterday that our primary role in this place is to do the best to look after our constituents. I thought that point was encapsulated very well by the hon. Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Sweeney), but it was apparent in all the passionate contributions made this afternoon by all the Members present. I am just sorry, Madam Deputy Speaker, that my winding up cannot possibly...

Kew Gardens (Leases) (No. 3) Bill [Lords]: Youth Services (24 Jul 2019)

Mims Davies: ...do not want to give away secrets at the Dispatch Box, but I very much encouraged it to do so, so I am delighted that it has undertaken that. As we have seen from the passionate speeches around the Chamber, there is absolutely a need to consider this report.
