Scottish Parliament: Benefits Uptake Campaign (17 May 2017)

Anas Sarwar: ...benefits uptake campaign, which I recently raised with the Minister for Social Security. Across Scotland, up to £2 billion in benefits are going unclaimed, including half a billion pounds-worth of tax credits for more than 100,000 Scots. Has the cabinet secretary considered options for co-location of benefits services? For every pound that is spent advising, it is estimated that...

Jeane Freeman: ...; the removal of people’s mobility cars, which is happening at the rate of 800 a week at the moment, even though they are essential to people’s independence and are a practical aid to working; the reduction in the work allowance on universal credit; a freeze on in-work benefits; the abolition of the independent living fund, which we have invested in from the Scottish budget to...

Scottish Parliament: Food Banks (9 May 2017)

Pauline McNeill: ...of Oxford, the three top reasons for referrals to food banks are low income—meaning that people who are in work are being referred—benefit delays and benefit changes. Food banks that operate in areas where universal credit has been rolled out have seen a 17 per cent rise in the need for emergency food. That is because the transition to universal credit involves a six-week wait...

Scottish Parliament: Cabinet (Meetings) (3 May 2017)

Scottish Parliament: School Leavers (North Ayrshire) (3 May 2017)

Jamie Hepburn: ...social security provision by the UK Government, some of which we debated last week. We know that, by 2021, about 50,000 families in Scotland could be affected by the policy of the two-child cap on tax credits, pushing more young people into poverty and directly deepening the attainment challenge that we have here in Scotland. Of course we will continue to respond. The Administration has...

Education (Student Fees, Awards and Support)(Amendment) Regulations 2017 - Motion to Regret (27 Apr 2017)

Lord Willetts: ..., and that it was a repayment scheme where they would pay back only if they started to earn more than £21,000 a year, and through PAYE. In other words, the so-called debt was nothing like a bank overdraft or a credit card debt; it was repayment through the income tax system if they were earning enough. That tackled their concerns, and since then we have seen an increase in the number...

Finance (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (26 Apr 2017)

Lord Davies of Oldham: ...discrete pieces of legislation. I am also grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, who took from me the responsibility of analysing in particular the problems with regard to the controversial digital tax proposals. These are controversial, of course, because quite clearly a lot of people considered that their interests had not been taken sufficiently—if at all—into account. Both...

Scottish Parliament: Carers and Social Care (26 Apr 2017)

Brian Whittle: I thank the member for that lecture, and for taking the intervention. I just want to point out that I have three children, and none of them will be defined by whether they get a tax credit or not with regard to how much I love them.

Criminal Finances Bill - Report (and remaining stages) (25 Apr 2017)

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: ...he had banked for 20 years. On 27 March, when he tried to withdraw part of the money to make his annual ISA subscription and to buy a car, he was told that the account had been frozen. Now, a month later, it still is. He has missed the opportunity to make his ISA investment because the tax year has ended. The bank will not—perhaps cannot because of the regulations—tell him...

Grandparents' Rights: Access to Grandchildren (25 Apr 2017)

Jim Shannon: ...interventions, and it is what I would look for, too—then that is what needs to happen. The Government enjoy the fact that one in four working families rely on grandparents for childcare, which saves the Government money in tax credits and childcare vouchers; it follows that grandparents should receive the benefit of Government notice and attention. That is what we are here today...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Employment income provided through third parties (25 Apr 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ...Standing Orders. I recognise that they were not put in place by this Government. On the provisions of the Bill, I welcome the Government’s withdrawal of certain measures. I note the Government’s position on making tax digital, but I welcome their recognition that it is a contentious matter and that it would be better to bring it back following the general election. I welcome...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Workers’ services provided to public sector through intermediaries (25 Apr 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ..., but the Scottish National party still has real concerns about these changes. Just the other day somebody told me that they are no longer bidding for public sector contracts as a result of the tax changes made on IR35. That is a real concern, which we have raised before, particularly in the context of rural communities. In some of our most rural communities, people such as teachers,...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Income tax charge for tax year 2017-18 (25 Apr 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: ...is under 25 does not mean they are doing any less of a job than a person over 25, and the minimum wage should apply to them just as much as to those who are older. The other issue is that the tax credit changes more than balance out the extra money people are getting from the increased minimum wage and personal allowance. People at the bottom of the pile are worse off as a result of the...

Neil Findlay: —and yet the finance secretary is throwing away £230 million on a wing and a prayer. Is it any surprise that Murdo Fraser and the Tories support the policy? On a day when they want to rip tax credits from rape victims—
