Scottish Parliament: Rural Development (Funding) (19 Jan 2017)

Peter Chapman: ...position. Farm debt levels have never been higher—they have increased by nearly 200 million to a record 2.2 billion—while the SNP Government has failed to deliver CAP moneys.

Anne Marie Morris: ...? First, he should abolish with immediate effect through a statutory instrument the application of the apprenticeship levy to schools. It is utter madness that a public body such as a maintained school, whose wages are paid through the local authority, hits the employment legislation’s minimum level.

Matt Warman: ...work if a job is already lined up. Secondly, we should point out that there has already been an impact on the supply of labour in constituencies such as mine.

Ross Greer: ...was commissioned by Parliament—and which has often been mentioned in recent debates—makes for pretty dark reading. Hard Brexit will mean an 8 billion loss to our gross domestic product, a 2,000 drop in the average wage and the loss of 80,000 jobs in Scotland. This Brexit plan was dreamed up by ideologues of the Tory right. They do not need to worry about it...

David Lammy: ..., ages and races who all have one thing in mind: passing “the knowledge” and becoming a London cabbie. They want to leave behind zero-hours contracts and insecure casual work.

UK Maritime Industry (12 Jan 2017)

Pat Glass: ...agreement for the two Seatruck vessels operating between Aberdeen, Shetland and the Orkneys. However, I have to be fair: we have heard a lot about maritime companies paying less than the national minimum wage.

The phrase “postcode lottery” is often overused, but in fostering it is all too true...
