Nick Gibb: ...3% in both 2018-19 and 2019-20. We have listened to those who have highlighted the risks of major budget changes in our first-stage consultation, which is why we have introduced a floor of a 1.5% minimum funding guarantee per year, and no school can lose more than 3% overall per pupil as a consequence of these changes. Schools in the north-east would, on average, see a 1% increase in...

Scottish Parliament: Tourism (26 Apr 2017)

Richard Leonard: ...planned to take place here next month. Will the cabinet secretary join me in welcoming that, and will she commit her Government to supporting the fair hospitality charter, which includes payment of a real living wage, minimum-hour contracts, proper rest breaks, equal pay for young workers and the right for trade union access in order to organise all workers in Scotland’s hospitality...

Scottish Parliament: Carers and Social Care (26 Apr 2017)

Mr Mark Ruskell: ..., which partly explains the low take-up. It would help enormously to ensure that the Scottish carers allowance does not count as income when benefits and care charges are being assessed. I turn to the important role of the waged care sector and the contribution that dedicated workers make to the daily care of tens of thousands of people across Scotland. A few short years ago, we saw much...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Employment income provided through third parties (25 Apr 2017)

Rob Marris: ...pensioner incomes have risen thanks to the triple lock—are still below what they were nine years ago before the crash. That is not all the fault of the Government, who have taken some good steps, but they have not gone far enough on what they now call the national living wage. They are converts—the Conservative party opposed the minimum wage on principle when we introduced the...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Income tax charge for tax year 2017-18 (25 Apr 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ...contentious part of the Bill. More generally on the income tax changes, I have said previously and am happy to state again that I appreciate the Government’s increases to the personal allowance and the minimum wage. But I have said previously and say again that the Government have not gone far enough. We have a national living wage, but there has been no calculation of whether...

Post Office Closures — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Tim Loughton: ...Home Office applications. There are also concerns about staff transfer: we know that in the post offices that have so far converted, only 10 of the 400 staff have been TUPE-ed across and they are often going into minimum wage jobs. There are question marks over ongoing training for staff who now work in non-Crown post offices, which have tended to have a big turnover of staff. In many of...

Scottish Parliament: Poverty Alliance Survey (25 Apr 2017)

Angela Constance: ...on low incomes in the first place. It can be because they are in work and on poor pay, which is why this Government is committed to doing everything that it can to promote and support the living wage—unlike the UK Government south of the border, which, of course, holds the powers in relation to minimum wage legislation. As more and more people in this country go hungry and struggle...

Scottish Parliament: Child Tax Credit Cuts (25 Apr 2017)

Ruth Davidson: I agreed with her then, and I still do. The First Minister gave monetary examples, so let me put them in context. A one-parent family with two children where the parent works 16 hours a week on the minimum wage can claim monetary benefits of just under £19,000 a year. Added to salary, that comes to the equivalent of an earned income of £32,000. I cite those figures only to give...

Clive Betts: ...service. The Committee heard that nearly half of workers leave within a year of getting a job, half are on zero-hours contracts, many do not get paid for travelling time, in contradiction to the minimum wage legislation, and 27% do not get any training in dementia before they go out to deal with people with that condition. Is there not now a case for developing a well-paid and well-trained...

Business of the House (20 Apr 2017)

Valerie Vaz: ...really look like? We on this side of the House say it looks like this: for children, it is protecting Sure Start and free school meals for all primary school children; for students, no increase in tuition fees; for working people, a £10 minimum wage that will lift them out of poverty, not the living wage of £7.50; for society, investment in our public services, with local...
