Scottish Parliament: Finance (Income Tax) (20 Sep 2017)

James Kelly: ...cannot face up to the issue by taking an honest position on taxation. The Tories’ position of not supporting income tax rises is clear and is rooted in their beliefs. They would quite gladly cut taxes back to the bare minimum, because they are not particularly interested in investing in the public sector, which they see as something of a handicap. That belief underpins their whole...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink Strategy (14 Sep 2017)

Edward Mountain: Thank you, Presiding Officer. I will continue where I left off. Since 2011, farm incomes have fallen by 75 per cent, and 59 per cent of farmers make less than the minimum agricultural wage an hour. The dairy industry is perhaps the best example; dairy farmers get a very low gate price that does not reflect the effort that they put in. Without realistic prices for produce, farmers cannot...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Eddie Hughes: ...schemes, we see that in order to earn the same sort of pension a plumber would need to be putting away 43% of their salary. What have this Government done instead?

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day) (13 Sep 2017)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...;frankly, seeking a meeting rather than a detailed answer to an amendment. This is to do with tax refund companies. These are businesses which help people who have had too much tax deducted at source from their wages complete and submit the paperwork required by HMRC to claim back the overdeducted tax. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that—it is a vital service. This will...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Jack Brereton: ...people dependent on benefits, as Labour did for so many years, an increasing number of people are in jobs. There is growing employment and prosperity. Instead of a life on benefits, there is now a living wage, which is improving people’s quality of life. The national minimum wage has been increased from £5.93 in 2010 to £7.50 today. That is a 26% increase. That change to...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Weekly Earnings (12 Sep 2017)

Margot James: That is one of the reasons why the Government have introduced the national living wage, as a means of boosting the earning power of people at the lower end of the pay scale. I acknowledge that average earnings have been static over the past year, but it is important to recognise that people on the national minimum wage were given a 4% pay rise in April this year, and 1.3 million of those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Child Nutrition (11 Sep 2017)

Justine Greening: ...is providing people with jobs and employment, and, secondly, making sure people get to keep as much of their pay packet as possible, which is why we have not only introduced the national living wage but have increased the personal allowance. If we take those two things together, we see that somebody working 35 hours on the national minimum wage, now the national living wage, will have...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Graham Stringer: ...European Union has been good for trade unions and the environment. That simply is not true. If one looks at the Laval judgment from the European Court of Justice or the Viking judgment, one sees that they undermine minimum wage legislation and the definition of what constitutes a trade dispute. If one looks at the width of environmental legislation, one sees that there is a lot in the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Social Services: Working Hours (7 Sep 2017)

Margot James: The suspension announced on 26 July is temporary; it does not change workers’ legal entitlement to their arrears of pay for any underpayments of the National Minimum Wage. The relevant enforcement power in the National Minimum Wage Act, to issue notices of underpayment, is discretionary. The suspension is consistent with this and is in line with the Government’s NMW enforcement...

Ellie Reeves: How many working parents have been excluded from the entitlement because they cannot guarantee that they will work more than 16 hours a week on the national minimum wage?

That makes it even harder for them to earn and work.

Venezuela: Political Situation — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (5 Sep 2017)

Alan Duncan: ...get hold of even the most basic essentials in what should be one of the most prosperous countries of the region. A local think-tank reports that a basket of basic food for a family of five costs more than the minimum wages for 14 people. That economic disaster would have implications for regional stability if it were to become a humanitarian crisis. Tens of thousands have already fled to...
