Written Answers — Department for Education: Children in Care (31 Mar 2020)

Vicky Ford: ...who attend university. LAs are required to provide financial support to help care leavers engage in education; employment and training; and a leaving care grant (£2,000) to help the young person furnish their first home. Since 2014, LAs have been under a duty to provide financial support to enable young people in foster care to remain living with their former foster family to age 21 in a...

Asylum Decisions (Support for Refugees) — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

Jim Shannon: ...that one in particular, got clothes for them and their children, and food as well as accommodation. We use the Thriving Life church for the food bank. Local church groups also got the furniture to furnish their homes for them. They had nothing. Those people come with nothing and start from a base that none of us ever starts from. We are fortunate to have had years of work, and family...

Scottish Parliament: Celebrating Scotland’s Volunteers (5 Jun 2018)

Bob Doris: ...happened. She went on to become the chair of Ruchill community council, where she did an amazing job. She set up the then Ruchill Furniture Project, which not only helps people who cannot afford to furnish their own homes, but reskills people to help bring furniture back up to standard. She was on the board of North United Communities, which is a hugely popular and successful community...

Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Dec 2016)

Nick Smith: Rip-off interest rates on household goods are wrong. Companies such as BrightHouse exploit families who have no other way to furnish their homes. Will the Prime Minister look at capping those interest rates to help those who are just about managing?

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Rent-to-own Sector (14 Jul 2015)

Paul Maynard: a mother and baby sheltered housing unit. I have no doubt that some in that sort of sheltered housing may be transient and have experienced family breakdown, or worse, and will often need to furnish their houses rapidly and fully. They will need the full complement of consumer household goods. They cannot just buy one thing and then wait a few months, so they are often driven towards...

Scottish Parliament: Circular Economy (14 May 2015)

Margaret McDougall: ...and had collected 360 tonnes of furniture from more than 2,500 collections, selling in excess of 5,700 items of furniture and white goods and assisting around 2,850 low-income families to furnish their homes on a budget. The charity has generated almost £190,000 of income from sales of furniture and recycled goods and has carried out almost 1,000 house clearances, void cleans and estate...

Welfare Assistance Schemes — Question for Short Debate (10 Feb 2015)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...and crisis loans. This funding was described then as the ultimate safety net for the most vulnerable—enabling, for example, women and children fleeing domestic violence to clothe themselves and furnish their homes. Funding under the new arrangements was to be channelled to local authorities and devolved Administrations for them to provide assistance as they saw fit. This funding, as we...

Scottish Parliament: Having and Keeping a Home (28 May 2013)

Mary Fee: ...were expressed about the amounts that were provided to furnish flats. We heard from Yvette Hutcheson that “people who apply for a community care grant may get £100 with which they are supposed to furnish their entire property.”—[Official Report, Equal Opportunities Committee, 29 November 2011; c 136.] Kate Sanford of Quarriers spoke about people having to sleep on floorboards,...

Council and Social Housing (6 Mar 2012)

Austin Mitchell: ...took us back to higher employment. Housing policy launched the recovery that was sustained by rearmament from 1938. Housing could do the same now, because it creates jobs and demand. People have to furnish their houses and provide everything in them, and that stimulates the entire economy. Everything—social need and economic sense—points to a big housing programme, particularly for...

Scottish Parliament: Welfare Reform Bill (22 Dec 2011)

Siobhan McMahon: ...that applicants will be given help with the forms in order to ensure that they are not unnecessarily rejected, and that the awards that are allocated will be sufficient to allow recipients to furnish their homes properly. Alex Neil, the Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure and Capital Investment, promised to look seriously at those suggestions to see whether the Government could take them...

House of Lords: Reform — Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (Continued) (22 Jun 2011)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: precisely because many of them attend debates and Bills which engage their expertise and experience; otherwise, they get on with outside jobs and perform the outside commitments which feed and furnish their virtues of experience and expertise. I do not disparage people who may come here-I am trying to be realistic-but I do not believe that a full-time, paid 20 per cent of Cross-Benchers...

Remembrance Day (Bank Holiday): Clause 69 — Ending of discretionary payments (15 Jun 2011)

John Martin McDonnell: ...all parties work closely with Crisis, and we have the greatest of respect for its work. That survey showed that 69% of clients used crisis loans for rent in advance, with 87% using them to help furnish their properties. In its briefing, which many Members will have seen, Crisis quotes one person as saying that unless we have a system that is at least as effective as the social fund, the...

Finance Bill (6 Jul 2010)

Barry Gardiner: ...from Crohn's disease. She will not be able to avoid losing £300 a year as the Bill cuts support year on year. Consider the young couple starting their life together, moving into and trying to furnish their flat. They will face the costs of conveyancing solicitors, new fridge, new washing machine, new carpets, new sofa, new telly. This is certainly the unavoidable Finance Bill for them,...

[Hywel Williams in the Chair] — Pensioner Poverty (10 Dec 2009)

Joan Humble: ...who are owner-occupiers. Many people who choose to retire to the seaside buy bungalows by the sea. As the Chairman said, when they first retire, they often have a reasonable income, and they furnish their homes and have a nice lifestyle. But 20 years later, that is not always the case, and they do not always realise that they can claim additional support.

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive — General Questions: Freight (Far North Line) (12 Feb 2009)

Rob Gibson: Can the minister be more specific about the powers that are available to him to ensure that all multiple stores along the route to which Jamie Stone referred furnish their stocks via the rail network? I am thinking of powers that the Parliament has agreed to, including planning powers, and the fact that 95 per cent of those stores are within a mile of the railway line.

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Members' Allowances (16 Jul 2008)

Ann Widdecombe: ...take a furnished, rented place, and therefore get no advantage. It is a rather strange proposition that there should be two tiers of Members in this House, according to whether they can equip and furnish their own home. We should rather be firm, and say that Members do require a second home. As the right hon. Member for Warley (Mr. Spellar) amusingly said, we do not go to our...

Chester Street Insurance Holdings (19 Nov 2001)

Barry Gardiner: ...failure would trigger crippling liabilities. In life assurance, it means the confidence to plan for a future that is financially secure beyond a lifetime of work. The failure of these companies to furnish their policyholders with the benefits they undertook to provide has caused enormous distress and suffering. However, their failure goes further in so far as it has undermined confidence...

Poverty (Scotland) (5 Feb 1997)

John McAllion: ...reports from his field officers of levels of poverty that he had never encountered before. They described children being sent to school with no breakfast, families being unable to carpet or furnish their homes, and genuine hardship on a scale that those of us who came of age in the 1960s never dreamed could happen again in our society. What was the Government's response? They chose to...

Bill Presented: Local Government Finance (Scotland) (28 Feb 1994)

Tommy Graham: .... Once again, the Minister will do nothing to help to reduce crime in Scotland, which will continue to rise. We will continue to have the problem of drug barons having more money than the police to furnish their evil trade in drugs. Earlier, I made an intervention on my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Provan (Mr. Wray) about nursery provision, for which there is a tremendous demand in...

Orders of the Day — Community Care (Residential Accommodation) Bill [Lords] (4 Jun 1992)

Tim Yeo: ...setting. Most Abbeyfield homes are family-sized houses where seven to nine elderly people have their own bed-sitting rooms. Residents have normally moved from their own homes nearby. They furnish their own rooms with their treasured possessions; they lead their own lives and come together for the main meals of the day, which are prepared by the resident housekeeper. That way of life...
