Local Government Finance (22 Feb 2017)

Clive Betts: ...absolutely right, and they should be congratulated on that. Nevertheless, the £543 million that the LGA estimates is going to be raised by the precept will just about cover the cost of the increase to the minimum wage, or the national living wage, as the Government call it.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Monks: .... We could apply new conditions to migration ourselves. In particular, a migrant must have a job to come to. Jobs should be advertised locally and not just in eastern Europe.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rate Resolution (21 Feb 2017)

Gillian Martin: ...that we have all heard—the claims that taxing higher earners a little bit more penalises hard workers or people with aspirations—is, frankly, offensive to everyone who works hard for whatever wage they can earn, whether they are skilled or unskilled. We all work hard and aspire to live a life that is without financial hardship. The hardest-working people are those who work for...

Paul Blomfield: ...paid lip service to those things, but they should understand people’s scepticism about their intentions, because although the White Paper boasts of increasing enforcement budgets for compliance with the national minimum wage, it fails to mention the appallingly low numbers of prosecutions for non-payment of the national minimum wage, or the rife abuse in the care sector, of which the...

Parking Places (Variation of Charges) Bill (3 Feb 2017)

David Tredinnick: ...biggest barrier to the regeneration of our town centres. That is perhaps no surprise when we consider the fact that the average hourly parking rate in London is £8.44, which is 18% more than the minimum wage. That is a staggering figure. The “Re-Think! Parking on the High Street” report clearly states that footfall does affect town centre performance, with those towns that...

Jim McMahon: ...to be a decent place to live and a decent employer—because that is the state, and we want it to set the bar for a decent place.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Melanie Onn: ...about an increasingly unstable labour market. There are protections against discrimination, and for the rights to rest breaks, paid holiday and leave for working parents.

On the steps of Downing Street in July, the Prime Minister referred to those...

Scottish Parliament: State Pension Inequality (1 Feb 2017)

Gail Ross: ...in that field for the next three and a half years? Her job is physical and a real struggle. Added to that is the worry of how she is going to cope—she lives on her own and pays full rent but earns only just over the minimum wage.
