Scottish Parliament: Parcel Delivery Charges (6 Dec 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: ...service record so that he could claim his pension from a predecessor to the current Ministry of Defence. That letter cost him £1 and 10 shillings to be delivered. When Rowland Hill introduced the penny post in 1840, he transformed the whole nation—the whole island—by creating a uniform delivery charge of a single penny, which was fundamentally different from what my...

Universal Credit Project Assessment Reviews (5 Dec 2017)

Ruth George: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that under the tax credits system, working people could earn up to £5,000 a year more and still keep their working tax credit without losing a penny of it? I very much hope that he advised his constituents of that when they came to him for advice.

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (5 Dec 2017)

Gloria De Piero: ..., and the split has weighed far too favourably in the Government’s favour. It would never have been forecast, or expected, that the Treasury would make so much money without ever having to pay a penny into the fund. We cannot rest until we put that right, and I will continue to raise this issue in Parliament. I have met the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Local and Regional Economies: Transport (4 Dec 2017)

Jim McMahon: London received almost £2,000 per person in transport investment, while the figure for Yorkshire and the Humber was just £190, the north-east just £220, and the north-west £680. Even if every penny of the £800 million that has been referred to was allocated to the north, it would amount to just £53 per head. When will the northern powerhouse get the money it...

Inequalities - Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2017)

Lord Bird: ...little place, but an enormous wealth of opportunities has been created by the Edinburgh festival. This has happened in my lifetime: 50 years ago, when I was sleeping rough in Edinburgh, you could not get a penny off anybody, but now you can live quite comfortably on the streets, and probably put a bit away for a bad day. These kind of considerations need to be there to address the interest...

Backbench Business: Deafness and Hearing Loss — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (30 Nov 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: ...truth of the matter. It might not be a great number of people, but that is what will happen. I note that the DWP says that only about 267 people will be affected by the cap. That is not a great number, but it really looks like penny-pinching when we compare it to the scale of the DWP budget.

NHS: Staff - Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2017)

Baroness Jolly: ...the NHS is experiencing is linked not only to pay but to the pressures that staff are put under to continue delivering high-quality services with insufficient resources. For the record, the Lib Dem policy of a penny-in-the-pound rise on all income tax bands and dividends would raise around £6 billion a year. This would be a hypothecated tax and would go some way to allowing the NHS to...

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Ian Blackford: ...address the injustice faced by female pensioners. Transitional measures to mitigate the issue would cost significantly less than the UK Government’s £30 billion figure. Last year, independent research commissioned by the SNP showed that the cost would be £8 billion. We can find billions for Brexit and billions for Trident, but not one penny for our pensioners, who are...

Exiting the Eu: Costs (29 Nov 2017)

Philip Davies: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that she agrees that the UK should pay the EU what we are legally obliged to pay—not a penny more and not a penny less? If so, will she make sure that, before this House votes on the final bill, we have an itemised account of exactly what we are paying for at the end, and also the legal basis on which we are making those payments? I have to say that...

Scottish Parliament: Non-domestic Rates (Arm’s-length External Organisations) (29 Nov 2017)

Andy Wightman: ...liability on improvements but a levy solely on land values. My colleagues and I recently calculated that, despite the current housing crisis, there are thousands of hectares of derelict and vacant land, some of which is owned by users of offshore tax havens who pay not a penny to local services. Councils could and should be provided with powers to tax the capital gains of main residences,...

Scottish Parliament: Small Business Saturday 2017 (29 Nov 2017)

Alison Harris: ...reasons, some do not make it. Every person whom I know who has attempted to set up a business gave it a good go. Often with the odds and bureaucracy stacked against them, some have sunk every penny that they had into trying to make a success of their dream, to the extent of remortgaging their homes. Those who have succeeded are now running businesses that serve our local communities and...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Topical Questions (29 Nov 2017)

Penny Mordaunt: I have just returned from Bangladesh, where I saw for myself the Rohingya camp and heard from refugees of the horrific atrocities that they have endured. I applaud the generosity of the Bangladeshi Government and the people of Bangladesh, as well as British taxpayers and all who have donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s appeal. Although every refugee has expressed the desire...
