Sajid Javid: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what sums were deducted from employee wages in (a) his Department and its predecessors, (b) its agencies and (c) other public bodies within its area of responsibility as a result of strike action in each year since 1990; and how many such employees were dismissed as a result of such action in each such year.
Sajid Javid: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what categories of worker are prohibited from participating in industrial action; and if he will make a statement.
Sajid Javid: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what collective bargaining agreements are in operation in the public sector; and if he will make a statement.
Sajid Javid: Does my right hon. Friend have a view on why Labour Members continue to treat the entire British public like children? They spend, spend, spend, bringing our country to the verge of bankruptcy-
Sajid Javid: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for this opportunity to present to the House of Commons this petition from the people of Bromsgrove, signed by more than 1,600 of my constituents. [Interruption.]
Sajid Javid: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills how many paid officials in (a) his Department and its agencies and (b) non-departmental public bodies within his Department's area of responsibility are full-time trade union officials; what the total annual remuneration is for each such official; and if he will make a statement.
Sajid Javid: I am sure that my hon. Friend is as shocked as I am that, in five months, this Government have achieved more than the previous one did in 10 years? I welcome the Treasury's swift action. The matter is extremely complex, as he said, not least because a number of financial regulators were involved during Equitable Life's problems and because of the problems associated with the life insurance...
David Gauke: ...amendments to the UK's treaty of accession to the EU in the manner the hon. Member suggests. However, as I told the House in my written answer to a question from the hon. Member for Bromsgrove (Sajid Javid) on 13 July 2010, Official Report, column 661W, the Government are actively reviewing the operation of Low Value Consignment Relief.
Sajid Javid: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many (a) collective and (b) individual trade disputes of each type in the (i) public and (ii) private sector were recorded in each class of economic activity under the 2007 Standard Industrial Classification in each year since 1990; and if he will make a statement.
Sajid Javid: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what proportion of the public sector workforce in (a) each Government Department and (b) each other public body are trades union members.
Sajid Javid: I paid a visit to my local jobcentre in Bromsgrove earlier this month, and I learned from the advisers that, in many cases, it takes them more than an hour to determine whether a jobseeker would be better or worse off by taking just six hours of employment in a week. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the introduction of the universal credit and the taper relief system will make a dramatic...
Sajid Javid: I congratulate the hon. Lady on her new position. The emergency Budget to which she referred was absolutely necessary considering the train wreck of an economy that we inherited. The country's debts were spiralling out of control. That Budget calmed the debt markets and allowed the country to look at its finances and to bring economic competence back into the Treasury.
Sajid Javid: Although the Browne report was commissioned by the previous Government, it rightly received cross-party support in recognising how difficult the subject is. Is the Secretary of State as saddened as I am that, following the Labour leadership election, that cross-party consensus seems to have broken down? It is not working in the national interest.
David Gauke: ...detect and take action against inaccurate claims to, or abuse of, the import VAT relief and, as I told the House in my written answer to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Bromsgrove (Sajid Javid), on 13 July 2010, Official Report, column 661W, the Government are actively reviewing the operation of low value consignment relief.
Sajid Javid: This past summer, my constituents in Bromsgrove have had to endure Travellers trespassing on their land, vandalising it and causing thousands of pounds of damage. Will my right hon. Friend consider bringing forward legislation to create a new offence of intentional trespass, so that people who go on to land without the owner's permission can be prosecuted without the need for a court order?
Sajid Javid: Constituents of mine, such as a gentleman, whom I will not name, who contracted both HIV and hepatitis C at the age of five, have made it clear that they do not want Members to consider the issue on a party political basis, and I welcome the fact that the hon. Gentleman is reflecting that wish in his tone. It is incumbent on every Member to put party politics aside and to do all we can to...
Sajid Javid: I welcome the bold and powerful statement that my right hon. Friend has made today and, in particular, the efforts to protect the most vulnerable. Does he agree that the biggest risk to our economy would have been to have done nothing at all, as advocated by most Labour Members, and that the action that he has taken today will do the most to restore economic confidence to our economy?
Sajid Javid: Yesterday, the international credit rating agency Standard & Poor's said something that would make Opposition Members quite upset. It upgraded our nation's credit outlook from negative to stable, but will the Prime Minister also heed its warning that that credit rating upgrade would be at risk if, in its own words, "against our expectations the coalition's commitment to fiscal consolidation...
Sajid Javid: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the biggest risk to our economy is the record deficit of 10% of GDP, the highest in the G20? Had we not taken action, that would have posed a big risk and we would have lost more than 490,000 jobs. Opposition Members should think about the jobs that we would have lost had the Government not taken decisive action.
Sajid Javid: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many individuals were continuously in receipt of out-of-work benefits between 1 June 1997 and 31 May 2010.
