Backbench Business: Child Poverty: London (22 Feb 2018)

Kit Malthouse: ...hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden referred to this—to building a country that works for everyone, where no one and no community are left behind.

It is a pleasure to follow him here today. Like...

NHS: Charitable Donations - Question (22 Feb 2018)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: ...he is saying, which is a desire for people to contribute back to the NHS not just through the tax system. It is important to point out that there are more than 250 NHS charities, with an annual income of £400 million. One of the other great gifts we have in this country is people’s willingness to donate time and money not just to the NHS but to a range of health causes. So we do...

Scottish Parliament: Prestwick Airport (22 Feb 2018)

Keith Brown: ...role for ministers in specific commercial discussions, and they do not sanction specific deals or agreements between the business and any of its customers. However, as the sole shareholder, ministers are supportive of the business’s overall strategic direction.

Scottish Parliament: Population Needs and Migration Policy (22 Feb 2018)

Fiona Hyslop: ...this Parliament and the previous Labour-Liberal Democrat coalition that they addressed that specific need. Indeed, it was mainstreamed into the UK immigration system before its withdrawal in 2012. The Smith Commission, with the support of all major political parties, called on the UK Government to reintroduce the visa, but we have had no response—indeed, we have had indifference. We...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review of relief for first-time buyers (21 Feb 2018)

Vincent Cable: ...to produce an independent, verifiable, non-political estimate of the yield that could be obtained by adding 1p in the £1—a 1% increase—to the standard, higher and additional rates of income tax.

East Midlands Ambulance Service (21 Feb 2018)

Justin Madders: ...root cause of the issues we are hearing about today. We are in the longest and most sustained financial squeeze in the history of the NHS, and that is having real consequences.

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Chris Philp: ...right one. We are taxing banks more heavily than non-banks. We are raising more money than ever before, but we must be mindful of the risk of driving these companies or part of them overseas at a time when they contribute 9% of our total income. On avoidance and evasion, I am proud that this Government have delivered the lowest tax gap in the world and improved by a quarter the position...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Wigley: ...is just not true. While my side of the Brexit debate is to accept that the UK voted to leave the EU, that vote in no way explicitly or implicitly requires us to break our economic ties. Some people who supported Brexit said that they had voted in 1975 to join the Common Market and that, if it were still just the Common Market, they would still support it. Retaining our single market and...

Wes Streeting: ...the arguments we have heard this afternoon. Member after Member has told us that they oppose new clause 9 because the Government already do this. If the Government already do this, why do they not support new clause 9? The fact is that the Government do not already do this. What the Government do is publish an impact assessment with a distributional analysis of Budget measures by...

Shared Parental Leave and Pay (Extension) (21 Feb 2018)

Tracy Brabin: .... My Bill would allow freelance partners to decide who receives the allowance so that a mum could take a block when she was ready or wanted to re-enter the workplace, while the family still received a regular income from the maternity allowance. That would be a simple way of replicating shared parental leave for freelancers at no extra cost to the taxpayer. Such a move would send a strong...

Coventry City Football Club (21 Feb 2018)

Tracey Crouch: ...that meeting if Members are finding it difficult to do so. Yes is the direct answer to that question; that invitation should be extended not just to Members for Coventry, but Coventry City supporters and those in the wider Warwickshire area who have a vested interest in the future of the club.

Scottish Parliament: Budget (Scotland) (No 2) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Feb 2018)

James Kelly: ...on £150,000 a year will pay only £17 more a week. That is a complete failure to take on the grave issues that we face. Time and again, during an election campaign, the SNP postures and declares that it supports a 50p top rate of income tax, but when it comes to delivering in Parliament and putting its money where its mouth is, it has voted eight times against a 50p top rate of...

Angela Rayner: ...’s recommendations are put to this House and implemented in primary legislation that we can properly discuss and amend? The Prime Minister admitted that the current system “leaves students from the lowest-income households bearing the highest levels of debt”.

Aid Sector: Safeguarding (20 Feb 2018)

Kate Osamor: .... Let me say very clearly that, for the Haitian women and girls fighting to survive an earthquake who were exploited and abused, it is just not good enough; for the British public and loyal Oxfam supporters who donate time, money, taxes and support, it is just not good enough; and for those of us in this House who support charities such as Oxfam to save lives in crisis and to tackle the...
