Written Ministerial Statements — Department for International Development: Ebola Update (9 Sep 2019)

Alok Sharma: Since the House was last updated on the response to the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in July, sadly the situation on the ground has become even more grave - despite the brave and tireless dedication of frontline responders. I therefore want to assure the House that the UK – in partnership with communities, local authorities and trusted international...

Girls’ Education (5 Sep 2019)

Alok Sharma: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his response. We are at a time when there is an enormous amount of rancour in this House, and debates are perhaps not as good-natured as you would like, Mr Speaker, but this is an area on which I think we can all agree across the House. Education matters for every child, whether in our country or the developing world. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will be...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Children: Maintenance (23 Jul 2019)

Alok Sharma: Under Universal Credit there is a structured approach to deductions from benefit, which simplifies the current complex arrangements of the legacy system. The aims of the deductions policy in Universal Credit are to protect vulnerable claimants by providing a last resort repayment method for arrears of essential services, to enforce social obligations and to recover Government debt in a cost...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits: Disability (23 Jul 2019)

Alok Sharma: It is the Department’s view that providing support for a maximum of two children or qualifying young persons in Universal Credit and Child Tax Credit ensures fairness between those supporting themselves solely through work and those receiving benefits. The Government assessed the impact of the policy from an equality and human rights perspective throughout its development and in...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Northern Ireland (23 Jul 2019)

Alok Sharma: Social security matters are the responsibility of the Department for Communities in Northern Ireland. The Department for Communities therefore delivers Universal Credit with the support of DWP and its Universal Credit Programme. Mitigations agreed as part of the Fresh Start Agreement allow the Department for Communities to deliver UC differently from the way it is delivered in GB, and...

Member for Reading West (Alok Sharma), said: “We will…ensure that the start date for the July 2019 test phase…is voted on.”—[Official Report, 8 January 2019; Vol. 652, c. 175.] Can the Secretary of State...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Welfare Assistance Schemes (22 Jul 2019)

Alok Sharma: The reforms to the Social Fund in 2013 allowed local authorities in England and the devolved administrations in Scotland and Wales to deliver their own local provision for people who are in need of urgent help. Local authorities are best placed to decide how to promote and target flexible help to support local welfare needs. The Government has no further plans to review provision. The Local...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit: Fraud (22 Jul 2019)

Alok Sharma: The Department takes benefit fraud very seriously and ensures that all cases are investigated thoroughly. If a claimant has been the victim of fraud, and has not benefitted financially in any way, they will not be asked to repay the money. The Department considers all cases on their own merits and decisions are made on the strength of the evidence provided. The Department remains...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (22 Jul 2019)

Alok Sharma: Universal Credit (UC) new claim advances provide access to a payment for those in financial need, which can be accessed on the same day, until their first UC payment is due. Claimants can access up to 100% of the total expected monthly award, for which they can pay back over a period of up to 12 months. The Department has taken a number of steps to ensure that advances meet the needs of...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits: Fraud (19 Jul 2019)

Alok Sharma: Most welfare losses, across Government, arise from a failure to report changes of circumstances. Universal Credit provides a single, digital interface through which claimants can more easily report these changes. As such, once Universal Credit is fully rolled out, we expect cross-welfare losses to fraud, error and overpayments to be reduced by around £1 billion. The Department takes...
