Public Bill Committee: Courts and Tribunals (Judiciary and Functions of Staff) Bill [Lords]: Deployment of judges (4 Dec 2018)

Lucy Frazer: use of our judges’ experience, expertise and time. I should make it clear that the deployment of judges is a matter for the judiciary, and the Lord Chief Justice and the Senior President of Tribunals already have far-reaching powers to ensure that the right judges are deployed on the right cases, taking account of changes in case loads of different jurisdictions. However, there are...

Economy: Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (13 Nov 2018)

Baroness Altmann: ...people earning between £10,000 and the personal tax threshold, which is currently £11,850 but will rise sharply next April, will be forced to continue paying 25% extra for their pension if their employer chooses the wrong type of administrative arrangement, as so many have done. This scandal has been ignored time and again. I hope that my noble friend will urge the Government to show...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Access to Legal Aid (13 Nov 2018)

Richard Burgon: last year? It was 478 people, not 91,000. Can the Minister honestly tell the House that the need for legal advice has reduced by such a degree, or should we instead conclude that—just as with employment tribunal fees, housing advice, employment advice and immigration advice—the cuts to legal advice for the sick and disabled are really about targeting the weak so that they can enrich...

Health and Social Care Committee: Future of Legal Aid (1 Nov 2018)

Ellie Reeves: ...situation he describes—trapped in the immigration system without being able to get access to any kind of legal aid to resolve their problems. For many years before entering this place I was an employment rights lawyer representing trade union members, and I regularly had to advise clients on their prospects of success in employment tribunal cases. In my experience, if I advised someone...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...compensation level of £150,000 and limited competence to adjudicate such claims, and the courts are simply out of reach. Lloyds bank, for example, has a £1 billion per annum budget for legal fees. It is impossible to get justice in court against a high street bank. The proposed extension of the Financial Ombudsman Service is to be welcomed, given the vital improvements to its level of...

Public Holidays on Religious Occasions — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Oct 2018)

Justin Madders: Thank you, Mrs Main. I was merely explaining that some workers in the gig economy, who are perhaps falsely labelled as self-employed, may not be able to take advantage of holiday entitlements. Has the Minister made an assessment of the number of people denied the right to annual holidays as a result of being incorrectly labelled as self-employed? In theory, flexibility should mean that there...

Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Uplift in exceptional circumstances (23 Oct 2018)

Richard Burgon: ...landlords or to challenge a flawed benefits decision or cruel immigration decision will be another, at a time when people need that kind of support more than ever. The Conservatives’ record on employment tribunal fees will also be something that we in this country will look back on shame. It is not only unlawful, as the Supreme Court decided, but immoral.

Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Damages for whiplash injuries (23 Oct 2018)

Alex Chalk: ...Justice Committee with several Opposition Members, and they have shown great distinction—if I may be so bold—and argued vigorously and passionately for the principle of access to justice and on employment tribunal fees, to which the hon. Member for Lewisham West and Penge (Ellie Reeves) referred. But that is not what this legislation is about. It is important not to set up straw men...

Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Restriction on increase in small claims limit for relevant personal injuries (23 Oct 2018)

Ellie Reeves: ...’s package of measures will be similar in scope to the disproportionate implications of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012—LASPO—and the unlawful introduction of employment tribunal fees, both of which are key pieces of Tory legislation that have done nothing but remove the rights of many people in seeking access to justice. What we have been left with is...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Assumed rate of return on investment of damages (11 Sep 2018)

Ellie Reeves: ..., regular reviews and expert-led setting of the rate form part of the Bill. I hope that by implementing those measures we will not see a repeat of the access-to-justice crisis caused by LASPO, employment tribunal fees and—an anticipated impact—changes to the small claims limit. The Government should take the time to implement the amendments to part 2 of the Bill.

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Rules against settlement before medical report (11 Sep 2018)

Ellie Reeves: Are we not going to be in exactly the same situation we were with employment tribunal fees? For people pursuing claims, fees, whether they are court fees, legal fees or medical costs, will put people off pursuing claims and therefore undermine their access to justice. The Government were called out on this by the Supreme Court regarding employment tribunal fees and we seem to be going back...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Liability Bill [Lords]: Damages for whiplash injuries (11 Sep 2018)

Jo Stevens: Does my hon. Friend agree that the impact of the Bill will mean that we are likely to see what happened in the employment tribunals when fees were introduced and there was a drop-off of 90%?

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Ellie Reeves: ...and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 have gone further and deeper than was ever intended, with the number of civil legal aid matters initiated falling by 84% between 2010 and 2017. The changes in employment tribunal fees that were introduced under another Tory Lord Chancellor—which have since been found to be unlawful—caused a 68% fall in the number of single cases received per quarter...

Legal Aid: Post-Implementation Review (4 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: funding, and on non-asylum immigration by unaccompanied and refugee children. There have been accompanying decisions in analogous fields—a Supreme Court decision showed that the disgraceful fees for employment tribunals were unlawful. Such decisions are important and benefit large numbers of people, but they only scratch the surface. Opposition has crystallised around certain areas...

NHS Whistleblowers (18 Jul 2018)

Justin Madders: be a deterrent but that, given the way it has operated, it is not that at all because whistleblowers are still being punished. Both he and the hon. Lady pointed out the woeful success rates in employment tribunals, which should give us all pause for thought about whether the legislation is fit for purpose. The hon. Member for Stirling talked about how litigation can sometimes be a war...

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Kevin Hollinrake: ..., so the guilty avoid scrutiny. The primary dispute resolution mechanism is the court, but who can afford to sue a bank? The simple solution that we propose is to establish a financial services tribunal, as detailed by hon. Members on either side of the House, which would emulate the operation of employment tribunals so that the plaintiff does not have to stand the cost of the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Employment Tribunals Service: Fees and Charges (12 Jul 2018)

Angela Crawley: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many tribunal claimants have been repaid since the supreme court decision in 2017.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Personal Independence Payment: Appeals (4 Jul 2018)

Lucy Frazer: In order to respond to a general increase in appeal receipts, HM Courts & Tribunals Service has been working with the tribunal’s judiciary both to appoint additional judges and panel members, and take forward initiatives with the potential to increase the capacity and performance of the tribunal. We have recruited extra fee-paid judicial office holders: 250 judges across the First-tier...

Ministry of Justice (2 Jul 2018)

Richard Burgon: ..., which has been shut down. A migrant—or even a person who looks like a migrant to some—faces deportation without legal advice. A young worker cannot afford to take an exploitative boss to an employment tribunal because of the unlawful fees imposed by the Tories.

Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Tracy Brabin: ...the norm. Indeed, I have spoken to youngsters out there who have never known a full-time, permanent contract or secure hours. Far too often, work in the gig economy comes with the erosion of employment rights—something that those who have worked in the creative industries know only too well. When I worked in television, we used to call ourselves the original gig economy, because just...
