Prime Minister: Engagements (1 Jul 2020)

Stephen Timms: The Government were right to raise universal credit by £20 a week at the start of the crisis, but other benefits, such as employment and support allowance, claimed by other people in identical circumstances, were not raised.

Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (Reducing Poverty) (29 Jun 2020)

Stephen Timms: I welcomed the Minister’s confirmation last week of no appeal in the universal credit court case that the Department lost, but has he yet grasped the full scale of the problem that that issue has raised? He said in the House last week that, at most, 1,500 people were affected and suggested that 85,000 was a figure that had come from the Opposition. I wonder whether he has now had the chance...

Stephen Timms: I do agree, and I am grateful to my hon. Friend for making that point. How many people are there in this situation?

Last month, I asked the Home Office a written parliamentary question: how many people were given leave to remain with no recourse to...

Stephen Timms: For 20 years, since the success of the Jubilee 2000 campaign, there has been a consensus across the House about the importance of international development, and I commend the Churches in particular for delivering and establishing that consensus.
