Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Stephen Timms: I am pleased to follow my right hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr Jones). I begin my echoing his appeal for support for local charities and community organisations, on which we are going to be very dependent over the next few weeks, and which we need to survive the challenges they face with loss of funding, bookings and so on in the period ahead. I warmly welcome the employment...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Stephen Timms: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. We took evidence this morning on that very point—the need to improve universal credit and change some of the problems. Unfortunately we were told that, because of the IT systems, there is very little that can be done in the short term. For example, one thing the Government have agreed to do is reduce the maximum deduction from people’s standard payment of...

Financial and Social Emergency Support Package (25 Mar 2020)

Stephen Timms: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. I very much agree about the need for more support for charitable organisations. I spoke yesterday to the chief executive of the Trussell Trust, who told me that of its 1,250 food banks, two have closed so far. One of them is reopening and some other arrangement is being put in place for the other one instead. It is a remarkable tribute to exactly the people...

We were told this morning that it is very difficult...

Stephen Timms: Does the Minister recognise that, in order to be able to stay at home in the way he is describing, people need financial support?

At the moment, there is no support available to enable them to self-isolate in the way he is rightly advocating.

Home Department: Covid-19: Law and Order (23 Mar 2020)

Stephen Timms: A large number of law-abiding workers in my constituency have leave to remain but no recourse to public funds.

Stephen Timms: Six years ago, over 30,000 overseas students from Commonwealth countries lost their visas when they were accused by the American firm ETS of cheating in its TOEIC—test of English for international communication—English language test.

Coronavirus: Employment Support (19 Mar 2020)

Stephen Timms: I very much agree with the proposals just made by the right hon. Member for Chingford and Woodford Green (Sir Iain Duncan Smith).

The Minister mentioned the suspension of the minimum income floor for self-employed people—a welcome announcement made...
