Universal Credit and Welfare Changes (21 Jun 2018)

Esther McVey: ...deprivation among children and pensioners have never been lower, inequality has fallen and remains lower than in 2010, and according to the latest figures, out this week, inequality, because of our benefit and tax changes, has fallen by two thirds in the last year. I wish the Opposition would keep up with the rapid changing of things. We are helping more people into work. More than 3.2...

Carers Action Plan 2018-20: Supporting Carers Today - Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2018)

Baroness Pitkeathley: ...strategy. Nearly 7,000 carers responded, but the strategy did not appear—caught up, no doubt, in the unexpected general election and the problem of social care suddenly becoming political dynamite.

Insecure Work and the Gig Economy (20 Jun 2018)

Wes Streeting: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Does she agree that it is utterly perverse that many of the people in low-paid insecure work are forced to rely on tax credits?

Universal Credit: Rollout - Question (20 Jun 2018)

Baroness Stedman-Scott: My Lords, we will continue to deliver universal credit as planned, completing the national rollout for new claims by the end of 2018, and from 2019 we will start to move people from the old benefits system and tax credits to universal credit. We have taken a test-and-learn approach; we have learned a lot, and we will continue this. We have made changes—advance payments, direct payments...

UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Marsha de Cordova: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Will the Government commit to carry out a cumulative assessment of their tax and social security reforms since 2010? In addition to the devastating cuts and suspicion, disabled people have been endlessly mistreated by the chaotic Department for Work and Pensions. High Court judgments have repeatedly found that the DWP has blatantly discriminated against...

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Chris Elmore: A constituent of mine, due to errors admitted by the Department for Work and Pensions, recently had her tax credit stopped, and has now had her child benefit stopped. That is having a huge financial impact on the family. Will the Leader of the House find Government time for a debate on DWP errors and how they are having a real impact on families up and down the UK?

Logbook Loans — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Yvonne Fovargue: ...—their official title—are governed by two statutes that are dated 1878 and 1882. They were designed in a different age to be used in a different age. They are antiquated and have no part to play in the consumer credit marketplace of the 21st century. Andrew Bailey, the FCA’s chief executive, recently called them “quaint”. They are a lot more than that: they...

Care of Prisoners’ Children (12 Jun 2018)

Nadhim Zahawi: as other foster carers, including financial support. Family and friends carers in informal arrangements are treated equally with birth parents in the benefits system in relation to child benefit, child tax credits and other means-tested benefits.

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (12 Jun 2018)

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

Helen Goodman: ...the complacent. The question is: why are these shops closing and what is to be done about it? The first issue is the shift to online sales. The Government have failed completely to set a level playing field on tax. John Lewis raised this problem at least three years ago. There should be a turnover tax for Amazon, Google and other big online retailers. I agree with the hon. Member for St...

Alok Sharma: ...hours. That is why, by 2019-20, we will be spending around £6 billion a year on childcare support.

The outcome from independent evaluation in areas of early introduction shows that, with increased...

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Alison Thewliss: ..., and I encourage everyone to meet them. I will speak briefly about the impact of women not having the right to choose and what happens when their options are restricted. The restriction of child tax credits and the child element of universal credit to the first two children in a family is a cruel policy that I am well on record as opposing, but we do not often discuss the choices that...
