NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Jon Ashworth: ...fools. The Secretary of State is graceful enough to concede that higher taxation is on the way, but do not the British public deserve to know how much extra tax they will be paying? Will VAT go up under the Tories? Will the basic rate of income tax go up under the Tories? It is not good enough for him to say that these are matters for the Chancellor, because they are matters for the...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Support for Mortgage Interest (15 Jun 2018)

Kit Malthouse: ...Tax benefit has been replaced with Council Tax reduction schemes, which are the responsibility of Local Authorities (LAs). Most LAs will offer the maximum level of relief for those receiving income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA). The move to SMI loans will mean a very small number of claimants (around 100 across Great Britain) will lose entitlement to income-related ESA and...

Trades Union Congress 150th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Monks: ...market. Frances is proving a great asset to the TUC, and on this side of the House and, I hope, more generally in the country, we are very proud of her. As a former general secretary, I am proud of the staff who support her and do a very good job. Since the 1980s, we have seen certain features which characterised the Victorian labour market—casual working, low pay, arbitrary action...

Brexit: Trade in Food — [James Gray in the Chair] (14 Jun 2018)

Neil Parish: ...;, is he referring to the food and drink sector? Our report naturally referred to the individual sectors of agriculture—dairy, sheep, beef and so on. This issue is linked not only to trade, but to the support policies that will be needed. An extensive beef and sheep farmer perhaps needs the basic farm payment much more than a dairy farmer due to the overall income from that business....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Sewel Convention (14 Jun 2018)

David Mundell: ..., so I do not know how the hon. Gentleman can make that statement, as Ministers today discuss the transfer of welfare powers, so that the Scottish Parliament can set up its own welfare system. Income tax powers have been introduced, which, regrettably, means that some of us have to pay more tax in Scotland than other parts of the United Kingdom. This Government have presided over a...

Nadhim Zahawi: The Department is firmly committed to ensuring that children with special education needs and disability (SEND), including hearing impairments, receive the support they need to achieve in their early years, at school and college.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Rushanara Ali: I rise to support Lords amendment 51 and amendment (a) to it, tabled by Labour Front Benchers, and the amendments on the customs union. The EU referendum has undoubtedly changed our country completely, and there will be ramifications for our economy and society. The enormous job of leaving the EU represents a huge challenge for any Government, but we must remind this Government that whether...

Immigration Rules: Paragraph 322(5) (13 Jun 2018)

Caroline Nokes: I have already told the hon. Lady that I will not. Paragraph 322(5) was not introduced to support compliant environment policies, as has been suggested, as it long pre-existed those policies. It does not mean that any particular individual represents a threat to national security, but for obvious reasons we do not seek to isolate national security refusals from others. However, I also...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Alistair Burt: ...such as GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative and the World Health Organisation to tackle vaccine-preventable diseases. Clearly there is a strong moral case for the UK and its international partners to support developing countries to tackle the scourge of vaccine-preventable disease—the contributions to the debate have shown that we all understand that....

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Ruth George: ...years—an average of more than £700 a year. That really hits their profit margins, which in most cases are already under threat due to changing shopping habits. We have all heard about the need to support high streets up and down the country, from the city of York to high streets in rural areas such as in Devon, Cornwall and my own area of High Peak. I echo the sentiments of...

Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...for instance, parents have become estranged or deceased and status is problematic. The 1983 fee for registration was £35. Today, as I have said, it is £1,012. That is inflation on quite some scale. As the noble Baroness said, the opportunity to make a profit was taken in 2007 and the fees have risen inexorably since then. This statutory right was never supposed to have been about...

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Report (12 Jun 2018)

Lord Hope of Craighead: My Lords, I should like to say a word in support of Amendment 50, which is in my name and builds on an amendment tabled in Committee by the noble Lord, Lord Faulks, to which I put my name but to which I was unable to speak because at the very moment he rose to speak I was taken out of the Chamber for a business meeting, so I never got to say what I should like to say now. I have proposed for...

Logbook Loans — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Yvonne Fovargue: ...Financial Conduct Authority—the FCA—in what looked like a kick into the long grass. Many of us are nonplussed by the Government’s U-turn. The Bill is largely uncontroversial and will have all-party support. It is undeniable that in their present form logbook loans cause great consumer harm. To say that reform of the loans is long overdue is pretty much an understatement....

Public Bill Committee: Tenant Fees Bill: Commencement (12 Jun 2018)

Melanie Onn: ...instrument forward. The Government’s rationale behind the Bill was that it would save tenants millions of pounds and make the market fairer and more transparent. That is a principle we have long supported. However, the potential for a delay in the enactment of legislation surely flies in the face of such an intention. Although we welcome the legislation, we cannot see it as the end...
