Parliamentary Proceedings: Statistics - Question for Short Debate (18 Jan 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...’s intention to publish legislation for pre-legislative scrutiny wherever possible. The draft Public Sector Ombudsman Bill was published only last month, following hot on the heels of draft tax legislation at the Autumn Statement.

DWP Estate — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (18 Jan 2017)

Chris Stephens: ...That seems to be a perverse vision of ensuring that work is a way out of poverty. The plan to close 50% of the jobcentres in Glasgow is a moral outrage. Some 68% of the people in Glasgow in receipt of jobseeker’s allowance, employment and support allowance and universal credit will be impacted by the closures. These closures will result in more people having to pay the telephone...

Education Funding: Devon — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (18 Jan 2017)

Anne Marie Morris: apprentices. Teachers are not apprentices. There could be apprentices in the administration area, but, given the pressure on schools, is that really where we want schools to spend their money? It is like having a tax credit that cannot be spent, so the levy has to be scrapped. It deserves urgent attention because the crunch point is soon: April 2017, which is not many days and weeks...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Jan 2017)

Louise Haigh: This week the national auditor revealed the abject failures in the Concentrix fiasco which had resulted in thousands of people being wrongly denied their tax credit. That was not one rogue contractor, but a system designed by the Government to pursue and chase down claimants for profit. Does the Prime Minister agree with the chief executive of HMRC that payment by results has no place in our...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Baroness Greengross: ...sort of goal. I warmly commend the work already carried out on the Bill by the Member for South Cambridgeshire in another place, Heidi Allen MP, who pressed the issue. I believe the Government, to their credit, have accepted the basic principles in her arguments, and we may hear more from them in Committee. But it is difficult to determine the full implications of some of the Bill’s...

Neil Gray: ...about the working families who stand to be 1,000 a year worse off by 2020—or, indeed, up to 2,500 a year worse off, according to the Resolution Foundation—as a result of cuts to universal credit. The House of Commons Library says that the full brunt of the social security cuts will not be felt until the mid-2020s; by then, overall net savings will be in the region...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Jan 2017)

Jane Ellison: ...criticisms in the report. We have accepted a number of the criticisms that have been made about the handling of this matter, but a lot of money has been saved by addressing error and fraud in the tax credits system. HMRC will respond in more detail at next week’s PAC hearing, and I will be considering the report in detail.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Supplementary Payment (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (16 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: ...would have been the case. Nevertheless, we should not make absolute statements when the facts do not justify them. One of the key facts about all this is that, as child benefit and child tax credit regulations are lifted from across the water, it will mean that people who have more than two children will be penalised. This is what 'The Guardian' has called the two-child policy. It will...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Housing Benefit (Welfare Supplementary Payment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (16 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: Mr Agnew made a most salient point when he said that, after four years — he put it more strongly than anybody else — the bedroom tax will be alive and well and imposed on the people of the North. By that stage, of course, more than 34,000 people might be affected by it; how do we know? The one part where I disagreed with Mr Agnew was where he said that, after four years, we...

UK Maritime Industry (12 Jan 2017)

Alistair Carmichael: ...—it is winding its way through the courts. I am afraid I have to say that the willingness of the shipowners in those cases to leave the seafarers they employ effectively destitute does them no credit. Sadly, it does not reflect particularly well on the wider industry, either. Where we have seen some progress—the Seatruck case—is however perhaps the low-hanging fruit. As...
