I was here in the Chamber in...

Universal Credit (17 Oct 2018)

Priti Patel: No, I will not. I do not have time. We must also ensure that we fully provide the ladder of opportunity to give a foothold to people and families who want to work and support them into work, as well as addressing the challenges in our welfare system. The task of this Government and the Treasury is well-versed, and I know that the Minister will not have to cover this point later. We must now...

We want to be in this space to address some of the big challenges...

That is exactly the purpose of the taskforce—to argue for that infrastructure investment. Greater...
