Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit (17 Nov 2016)

David Burrowes: and practical support is available. The 2013 incarnation of the support fund managed only to assist people with getting job interviews. It must be about much more than that. I want to hear from the Minister that this will be a much more integrated package, which incorporates the vision in the Green Paper. Let us grasp that vision and ensure it becomes a reality. Let us make sure...

Immigration Bill: Detention etc. by immigration officers in Scotland (9 May 2016)

David Burrowes: ...60-second recommendation, what was the Government’s definition of excessive detention. One would certainly say that if detention extends to four months, it is excessive. I concede that this is part of a Government package, which includes the publication, for the first time, of an “adults at risk” policy and the introduction of removal plans. I would welcome the...

Immigration Bill: Unaccompanied Refugee Children: Relocation and Support (25 Apr 2016)

David Burrowes: I welcome the diligence and care that the Minister has afforded colleagues from across the House in relation to the package that was announced last week.

Backbench Business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

David Burrowes: ..., who come from some of the most appalling backgrounds and are often traumatised, are at risk of exploitation, not least as they make these journeys. As they come into this country, we need to ensure that we have the right package of support for them. A point highlighted in the report that I have mentioned is the transition to adulthood. That is unsettling and unpleasant for all children,...

Backbench Business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

David Burrowes: ...resettlement programme. I pay tribute to the Government for the vulnerable persons relocation scheme and the 20,000 commitment. I think that 1,500 people have been resettled. That is part of a package that is not just about numbers. It is a serious package of support involving local authorities and communities. I understand that at the recent meeting in Geneva, attended by my hon. Friend...

Backbench Business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

David Burrowes: There will be significant financial costs, and I hope that we will see the details of the commitment to relocate more unaccompanied children. The financial costs need to be clear. We need a proper package to be able to make that commitment—the vulnerable persons resettlement scheme included a financial commitment to local authorities—because we must take account of the additional...

Backbench Business: Unaccompanied Children — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (19 Apr 2016)

David Burrowes: ...modern slavery, and I share her concern. Following the passage of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we need to make sure that we recognise the inherent risk faced by such children and that there is a package available to do more than the current care system to provide help. We must end the uncertainty on the status of those children and ensure that there is a long-term commitment to their...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill (Programme No. 3): Schedule 2 — Further provision about social housing rents (27 Oct 2015)

David Burrowes: The hon. Gentleman is very kind. Will he speak up, loud and clear? He says that he and his party will oppose the Bill, so what are their alternatives? How would they meet the £12 billion savings package? What parts of it will they accept, and what are their alternatives? We want to know the basis of their opposition.

Welfare Reform and Work Bill (Programme No. 3): New Clause 2 — Assessment of tax credit and benefit reforms on working families (27 Oct 2015)

David Burrowes: .... What we need is specialised tailored employment support.

David Burrowes: ensure that tailored support can be provided to those hard-to-reach groups that are finding it difficult to get work, whether through the WRAG or in other ways.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Online Gambling (1 May 2014)

David Burrowes: I invite the Minister to take no lessons from the Opposition who are just opportunistic about FOBTs—in 2000 there were none, but in 2010 there was an explosion of 30,000 FOBT machines. The packages yesterday to protect communities are welcome in my constituency, which has seen a saturation-level of FOBTs, particularly in Palmers Green. Will she also consider the introduction of a...

Public Bill Committee: Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Clause 4 - Opt-in: marriage in places of worship (5 Mar 2013)

David Burrowes: ...with other authorities, such as, in a religious context, spiritual authorities. In addition, clause 4 requires consent from the relevant governing authority. We have to unpack those definitional terms to see whether the Government have themselves unpacked them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Crime and Courts Bill [Lords] (14 Jan 2013)

David Burrowes: ...the examples of Red Hook and Harlem, and now there is the example of Liverpool as well. In our whole approach to community justice we must recognise that when someone comes to court they come with a whole package of concerns that may well go across jurisdictions. That arises particularly when dealing with young offenders, given the need for timely and effective intervention. From my...
