Women and Girls: Economic Well-being, Welfare, Safety and Opportunities - Motion to Take Note (14 Jul 2022)

Baroness Stedman-Scott: I start by echoing many of the tributes paid to the noble Baroness, Lady Gale, for bringing forward this debate, and to all Members who have spoken and contributed to such an all-encompassing discussion. I would also like to pay tribute to those men who have joined us today and made very forthright contributions. It is great that you respect women, and their role and potential in the country....

Petition - Schools Bill (13 Jul 2022)

John Howell: I should declare straightaway that I have taken on this petition from my hon. Friend the Member for Beverley and Holderness (Graham Stuart). I will start by pointing out how welcome the tradition of presenting petitions in the Chamber is, to ensure that voices that otherwise might not be heard, should be heard. I present a petition from some 50 of my constituents. I present this petition...

Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (11 Jul 2022)

Therese Coffey: ...of the £37 billion package that is going to households, £15 billion of which is being deployed this year. People will already have received some elements of that through council tax support, and I have outlined the cost of living payment support. I could add to that the lifting of the national living wage to £9.50 an hour and the reduction in the taper rate to 55% for people who are...

Social Security (Additional Payments) Bill (22 Jun 2022)

Therese Coffey: My understanding is that the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, my right hon. Friend the Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng), is aware of that particular channel. I am led to believe that a solution is being developed so that people will benefit from that cost even if they do not receive the money directly, because a lot of park home owners do not pay their...

Miscellaneous (22 Jun 2022)

(9) Standing Order No. 15(1) (Exempted business) shall apply to proceedings on the Bill. (10) Standing Order No. 82 (Business Committee) shall not apply in relation to any proceedings to which this Order applies. (11)(a) No Motion shall be made, except by a Minister of the Crown, to alter the order in which any proceedings on the Bill are taken, to recommit the Bill or to vary or supplement...

Scottish Parliament: Non-Domestic Rates (Coronavirus) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Jun 2022)

Willie Coffey: I am grateful for the opportunity to say a few words in support of the bill. I note that there have been no further amendments lodged at stage 3. The stage 2 amendments were minor and our committee supported the bill unanimously. It is only a few weeks ago that I spoke in the stage 1 debate. It is worth reminding ourselves that the bill’s purpose is fairly straightforward: it is to ensure...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Local Government Elections (Candidacy Rights of Foreign Nationals) Bill: Stage 3 (9 Jun 2022)

Willie Coffey: Having listened to Stephen Kerr, I was a bit alarmed that I might be speaking in the wrong debate. In the spirit of fairness and generosity, I will say that his comments, although mostly nothing to do with the bill, are very welcome nonetheless. When the bill came to the chamber at stage 1 on 28 March, we recognised that, although it was pretty short, it provided an important route to...

Work and Pensions: Benefits Recipients: Effect of Inflation (6 Jun 2022)

Therese Coffey: The Government have always been clear that getting into work and getting on in work is an important way to lift people’s prosperity. That is why we lifted the national living wage from April; why last December we quickly put in place a change in the taper rate so that people keep more of what they earn, while still getting support and benefits; and why we have stepped in with a substantial...

Work and Pensions: In-work Poverty: Cost of Living (6 Jun 2022)

Therese Coffey: This Government have taken decisive action to make work pay, giving 1.7 million families an extra £1,000 per year, on average, through changes to the universal credit taper, work allowances, and increasing the national living wage to £9.50 an hour. Some extra support is coming in through the packages we have already mentioned today. It is also important to make the House aware that we...

Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (6 Jun 2022)

Therese Coffey: Well, I do not have the voice of an angel, and nor do I claim to have the pathway to heaven in this regard, but I am very conscious of the people of Wakefield, as I am of those right across the country. On people who are economically inactive, I have been consistent in saying that my priority is those who are currently on benefits and receiving financial support. They will always be my top...

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

Therese Coffey: It is an honour to conclude this debate on the Gracious Speech. Understandably, a lot of people have contributed today. I want to take this opportunity to join right hon. and hon. Members in paying tribute to Her Majesty in her platinum jubilee year. This is a Queen’s Speech that will deliver for the British people: safer streets, stronger schools, a secure supply of energy, speedier access...

Scottish Parliament: Coronavirus (Recovery and Reform) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (12 May 2022)

Willie Coffey: Our Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee focused its attention on tenancy issues, which are contained in part 4 of the bill. The whole committee was content to support the proposals by the Scottish Government, including our Tory and Labour colleagues, who supported the provisions then but who will vote against the bill in about 20 minutes. That is very curious. There are two key...

Scottish Parliament: Affordable Housing (4 May 2022)

Willie Coffey: 2. To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the delivery of affordable housing. (S6O-01031)

Scottish Parliament: Non-Domestic Rates (Coronavirus) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (28 Apr 2022)

Willie Coffey: I really enjoy speeches by my friend and colleague Fergus Ewing. He can certainly brighten up a dull day. He should be selling a course of 10 speeches. Many members would learn a lot if they came here to listen to him. I recall other colleagues’ speeches. I always came to the chamber to listen to David McLetchie’s speeches because they were excellent. I also used to come to listen to Tom...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Work and Pensions: Completing the Move to Universal Credit by 2024 (25 Apr 2022)

Therese Coffey: In 2012, Parliament voted to end legacy benefits and replace them with a single modern benefit system, Universal Credit (UC). The UC system stood up to the challenges of the pandemic and ensured support was provided for a significant number of new claimants with varying needs across the country. As the rest of government and society returns to business as usual, it is appropriate to resume...

Scottish Parliament: National Planning Framework 4 (19 Apr 2022)

The Deputy Presiding Officer: Mr Coffey, I will pause you there. This is not a reflection on your remarks, but I do not think that this is reflecting particularly well on the chamber, so I will suspend business for a brief period until we can establish where the convener is and we can recommence the debate. Thank you for your attempt to allow us to stay on track. 15:00 Meeting suspended....

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Work and Pensions: Extension to the Household Support Fund (31 Mar 2022)

Therese Coffey: The economy is in recovery, with a record number of people on the payroll, but we recognise inflationary challenges and that people are concerned about pressures on household budgets. That is why we are extending the Household Support Fund to provide cost of living support for households most in need. From April, the government is providing an additional £500 million to help households with...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Work and Pensions: Annual Households Below Average Income and Separated Families Statistics 2020/21 (31 Mar 2022)

Therese Coffey: The Department for Work and Pensions has today published its annual statistics on incomes and living conditions covering 2020/21, the first year of the pandemic. This includes Households Below Average Income (HBAI), which includes statistics on household incomes and a range of low-income indicators for 2020/21, derived from the Family Resources Survey. This consisted of around 10,000...

Scottish Parliament: Benefit Sanctions (31 Mar 2022)

Siobhian Brown: I congratulate Kaukab Stewart on securing the debate and welcome the opportunity to speak in it. As we have heard, a recent paper by University of Glasgow researchers notes that the cruel and heartless benefit sanctions imposed by the UK Government have a significant impact internationally on the labour market and have negative widespread social effects. What is more, they do the exact...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Local Government Elections (Candidacy Rights of Foreign Nationals) Bill: Stage 1 (29 Mar 2022)

Willie Coffey: I intend to speak to the motion, unlike the unfortunate rants that we heard earlier from the first Tory speaker, which were a shame. Although the bill must be one of the shortest ever seen in Parliament, it is certainly significant because of what it does. All our speeches in the debate will probably be longer than the bill, but it is important to bring it to the attention of the Scottish...
