Christmas Adjournment — [David Hanson in the Chair] (20 Dec 2018)

Siobhain McDonagh: ...it. Although Brexit has been all-consuming of the Government’s time, energy and actions, the day-to-day reality for my constituents and those outside the Westminster bubble is quite different. There are 130,000 children who will wake up on Christmas morning without a permanent place to call home. My local accident and emergency unit is so full that my constituents have been left queuing...

Disability Support (19 Dec 2018)

Fixing the problems of poverty for people with...

The beauty of this report is that it is dominated by the evidence of the workers, not...

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...energy efficiency delivery mechanism in England. It has also been cut from £1.2 billion a year when it was first introduced in 2013 to £720 million per annum in its second phase, and has been reduced still further to £640 million—effectively a 50% cut.

Anneliese Dodds: ...20 years, according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies. The number of people under the age of 45 who own their own home has fallen by 1 million since 2010. Of course, the number of new homes for social rent has fallen by 80% since 2010.

Scottish Parliament: Homelessness (29 Nov 2018)

Emma Harper: ...have been announced by the Scottish Government to help to eradicate the human rights issue that is homelessness. Everyone in Scotland—regardless of their race, religion, background, gender and social circumstance—must have a safe, warm and settled place to call home.

Aileen Campbell: ...his 12-day visit to the UK. He did not pull any punches in his devastating critique of the UK Government’s deeply flawed approach to welfare reform and the damage that is being done to the wider social safety net. Professor Alston’s report is a damning indictment of the systematic failings of the UK Government, which has overseen the first sustained rises in poverty in recent years....

Baroness Grender: ...since, they were shocked by what they found in some communities: children going without meals, schools having to find shoes for children and the scandal that continues because of the lack of decent social housing, leaving people on low or no incomes with little choice but to rent in the worst parts of the private sector. Their investigation highlighted the toxic combination of...

Universal Credit Roll-out: Nottingham (14 Nov 2018)

Alex Norris: ...communities that are very similar to mine, my constituents and I are anxious, fearing that this will be anything but simple. We are anxious that it will mean delays, reductions in benefits, debt, rent arrears, visits to food banks and more poverty. My colleagues in Nottingham—I am glad to be joined by three of them—and I do not accept that for our community. I believe that the roll-out...

Baroness Kramer: ..., put down an Early Day Motion on this issue; 100 MPs have signed it across all parties, reflecting the experiences of their constituents.

Claudia Beamish: ...to go into today, are being explored or are happening in other countries. I saw a BBC documentary about a Dutch system that has students living in a nursing home and offering support in return for reduced rent. There are positive intergenerational effects, including tackling loneliness and isolation and helping to tackle depression in both the older and younger people. Social cohesion can...

Scottish Parliament: Poverty (6 Nov 2018)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: ...stand up for the people of Scotland in the face of the UK Government’s cuts. Perhaps, when is considering what is said today, Adam Tomkins will reflect on what he would like us to cut from our current budget, since he would like us to use those powers.

Benefits: Reductions - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2018)

Baroness Drake: ...my noble friend Lord Bassam on securing today’s debate and on his powerful contribution. The debate, with so many excellent contributions, has drawn out very clearly the need to look at social security as a whole and at the impact that it has on the day-to-day life that people and families in the UK lead, not just as a spreadsheet of discrete numbers. In the recent Public Accounts...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Jim Cunningham: ...us where the Government actually stand on it. To say the least, there has been quite a lot of public disquiet. I also note that, as far as I could see, there was no reference in the Budget to a social housing programme. What I mean by that is council housing. The only way we can deal with the housing crisis is through proper social housing at affordable rents. In my experience, only local...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (30 Oct 2018)

Debbie Abrahams: ...in particular. Resolution Foundation analysis published today and yesterday’s Budget book show that people on the lowest incomes will be hit disproportionately hard. The Government have not reduced inequalities. Have Ministers assessed the Budget’s impact on life expectancy? Will it continue to flatline, will it get worse or will it increase? I doubt they are able to say it is on the...
