Democratic Political Activity (Funding and Expenditure) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Oct 2017)

Lord Tyler: ..., of course, it was Old Sarum that was always given as the example we should all refer to in that connection.

The recent practice, by all parties, of their national campaign...

Then I have to sell some more products so that I can pay the bank back”. Suddenly, the penny was dropping, even in that young mind. I can also tell you about a young lad whose mum had a new man in her life....

Modern Slavery Act 2015 (26 Oct 2017)

Vernon Coaker: ...and night over 13 years with no pay. The police refused to recognise that her son might be at risk, so in the end he was found and rescued by his own family. Yet four years after being rescued, Darrell has still not had a penny of compensation, nor has he received the sort of support that we might expect. I suggest to the Minister that while the Act focuses on criminal justice without...

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Jess Phillips: ..., the money goes to her. There are lots of women across the country saving up money and putting it away, so that they can escape and will not need a refuge bed.

It does not take a genius to work out who usually gets the money in a household, so that money will now be...

Social Care (25 Oct 2017)

Christine Jardine: ...we are perhaps getting that wrong. We have heard much about the problems with funding and the delays in transfers. Perhaps the most important thing we can do, apart from raising money by putting a penny in the pound on tax as my party advocates, is to stop treating social care and the NHS as a political football. Perhaps it is time that we establish a cross-party health and social care...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (24 Oct 2017)

Laura Smith: the country, with almost 4,000 children living in poverty. My constituents literally cannot afford to be subjected to this punitive programme. Will the Government admit that the six-week wait is nothing more than a penny-pinching exercise? How dare they patronise us with their excuses? Do they really expect me to explain to my constituents that the Government’s six-week wait is...

Rail Links: South-west England — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (24 Oct 2017)

Steve Double: ...that is being called for for the report sounds like an awful lot of money for what is essentially a desk-top exercise. I ask the Minister not only to support it but to ensure that we get value for money for every penny that we spend, so that we do not just throw money at things.
