British Sign Language Bill (18 Mar 2022)

Simon Baynes: I thank my hon. Friend for his comments. I fully endorse training of that nature. I was struck by what my hon. Friend the Member for Bassetlaw (Brendan Clarke-Smith) said about the educational process, and I was pleased that the Minister for School Standards was nodding in assent to what he said about putting it in the curriculum. We need to set an example here, so my hon. Friend the Member...

Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles (Disabled Persons) Bill (18 Mar 2022)

Simon Baynes: ...to identify and find the vehicle they have booked, without making any additional charge for doing so. In a sense, that is related to the point that my hon.

Written Answers — Treasury: Economic Situation: Equality (18 Mar 2022)

Simon Clarke: Work is the best route out of poverty and that is why the government is investing more than £6 billion in DWP labour market support over the next three years to help people move into, and progress in, work.

On 28 January 2022, the ONS restarted publication of CPI inflation broken down by income, having previously suspended this due to the unavailability of many items for price quotes during the pandemic. The ONS find that high-income and low-income households have experienced...

Commonwealth Day — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (15 Mar 2022)

Theo Clarke: ...every day living in the Commonwealth. Sadly, it is only set to get worse in the future if we do not work together to tackle it. I am sure that, like me, many Members saw Tuvalu’s Foreign Minister Simon Kofe’s very emotive speech at COP26. He said, “We are sinking.” The camera then panned behind him to show that the island where he was standing was actually under water. As they say,...

Written Answers — Treasury: Energy Bills Rebate (15 Mar 2022)

Simon Clarke: In most cases the rebate will be delivered as a direct payment. This allows support to be provided up front rather than spread across the usual council tax instalments and means that households that don’t pay council tax are not disadvantaged. Councils can, however, offer the option of a credit to council tax accounts to non-direct debit holders as part of the claims process. This is...

Written Answers — Treasury: Block Grant (15 Mar 2022)

Simon Clarke: In February 2022, I met with the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Finance and the Economy to discuss preparations for the Fiscal Framework review.

Further to this, we agreed that dialogue and joint preparations on the Fiscal Framework...

Treasury: Kickstart Scheme (15 Mar 2022)

Simon Clarke: Some 130,000 young people across Great Britain have benefited from the kickstart scheme so far, including in my hon. Friends’ constituencies. That is lower than the 250,000 jobs that the scheme could have funded, but the scheme was designed at a time when unemployment was expected to peak at 12%. The reality is that, thanks to the intervention by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor, the...

Treasury: Managing the Public Finances (15 Mar 2022)

Simon Clarke: People are rightly angry that fraudsters stole from covid support schemes, as am I. When the schemes were launched, there was cross-party consensus that we needed speed to protect jobs, and because of our action unemployment peaked at 5.2%, not the 12% predicted at the start of the pandemic. We designed the schemes to prevent as much fraud as possible, and lenders stopped nearly £2.2 billion...

Treasury: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2022)

Simon Clarke: My hon. Friend has made an excellent point. He is right to champion the value of apprenticeships, in which the Government keenly believe. I had a great roundtable with apprentices in Newcastle recently, and heard for myself just what a difference they are making both to their employer and to the wider economy.
