Clerk of the Parliaments - Retirement of Sir David Beamish KCB (24 Apr 2017)

Baroness Evans of Bowes Park: My Lords, on 1 November last year I informed the House that Sir David Beamish had announced his intention of retiring from the office of Clerk of the Parliaments with effect from 15 April this year, followed by an announcement, just before the Christmas Recess, that Ed Ollard would become his successor. I indicated at the time that there would be an opportunity to pay tribute to Sir David...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Assured Shorthold Tenancies (24 Apr 2017)

Gavin Barwell: I had the opportunity to visit Cambridge very recently, and I share the hon. Gentleman’s diagnosis of the problem: we desperately need to build more homes in this country to give people more choice. He is also right about our employment market, but it is the policies of this Government that have driven record levels of employment, and it is the national living wage that is increasing...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Treasury: Living Wage (24 Apr 2017)

Business of the House (20 Apr 2017)

Valerie Vaz: I thank the Leader of the House for giving us the business for the very last week of this short and eventful Parliament; I will save my further thanks for the end of my response. This was an eventful Parliament, not least because of the death of PC Keith Palmer, Leslie Rhodes, Aysha Frade, Kurt Cochran and now Andreea Cristea, as well as the injury of many others. As the dean of Southwark...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Revenue and Customs: Training (20 Apr 2017)

Jane Ellison: The Government are determined that everyone who is entitled to the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and National Living Wage (NLW) receives it. Anyone who feels they have been underpaid NMW or NLW should contact the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) review all complaints that are referred to them. The Government has more than trebled annual funding of minimum wage...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (20 Apr 2017)

Kezia Dugdale: Labour members of Parliament voted yesterday to get rid of the miserable Tory Government. Imagine my surprise when the SNP MPs did not do the same. The First Minister has said that she wants an honest debate, so let us have it. It suits the SNP for the Tories to stay in power. That is why SNP MPs refused to vote Theresa May out of office yesterday, and every day that the Tories remain in...

Scottish Parliament: International Workers Memorial Day (20 Apr 2017)

Neil Findlay: My colleague Alex Rowley has asked me to apologise for his absence from today’s debate; he had intended to speak, but he has another engagement. In addition, I will have to leave after making my contribution as I have to chair a Public and Commercial Services Union group meeting. I thank Clare Haughey for bringing to the chamber what is now an annual debate on international workers...

Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (19 Apr 2017)

Peter Dowd: We find ourselves in a strange position. We are debating a motion to approve the Government’s programme for convergence with the EU at the start of an election campaign in the context of leaving the EU. That is an unusual set of circumstances, to say the least. Some see it as almost theological. There will no longer be a requirement for convergence, and the Conservatives have no idea...

Universal Credit — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Justin Tomlinson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) for obtaining this important debate. All the hon. Members who have spoken have made many constructive and proactive points based on individual experiences and the casework that we all regularly do. I know that in the Minister we have someone who...

Technical and Further Education Bill: Financial Support for Students Undertaking Apprenticeships (19 Apr 2017)

Gordon Marsden: I am grateful to the Minister. The broader perspective of social mobility is a perfectly reasonable way of going forward. However, to be honest, particularly at a time such as today when we are moving to a general election, I think that most people would be interested in some movement—some jam now rather than a promise of jam possibly in future from the social mobility study. I will...

Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: I was elected leader of my party by 300,000 votes. I do not know how many people voted for the Prime Minister to be leader of her party. I suspect it was none whatsoever. To the 6 million people working in jobs that pay less than the living wage, I simply say this: it does not have to be like this. Labour believes that every job should pay a wage people can live on, and that every worker...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (19 Apr 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: I concur with the condolences that the Prime Minister just sent to the families of the three people who so sadly and needlessly died. It is important that we recognise that as a cross-party proposal today, and I thank the Prime Minister for it. We welcome the general election, but this is a Prime Minister who promised that there would not be one—a Prime Minister who cannot be trusted....

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Economy (19 Apr 2017)

Patrick Harvie: I welcome this afternoon’s debate on the economy, and I am glad that it has not descended wholly into a debate on independence and Brexit, as happens so often, although I must say that, when the opening Conservative speaker called for a period of constitutional stability, I almost choked on my watermelon—I really did. [ Laughter .] The Green amendment focuses on two main themes:...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is a pleasure to close today’s debate on the Finance (No. 2) Bill, even if other events have possibly overshadowed today’s important parliamentary business. In fact, I understand that there are reports circulating this evening that the Crown Prosecution Service is about to charge 30 senior Conservatives with election expenses fraud, so I am afraid it is possible that we may be...

Scottish Parliament: Preventative Health Agenda (18 Apr 2017)

Colin Smyth: It is a privilege to open on behalf of the Labour Party on an issue that I know is very important to all members of the Health and Sport Committee. When Labour created the NHS in 1948, life expectancy in Scotland was 64 years for men and 69 years for women. Today, it is now around 77 years for men and 81 years for women. That shows the success of Britain’s greatest achievement—our...

Guardianship (Missing Persons) Bill - Second Reading (6 Apr 2017)

Baroness Hamwee: My Lords, I have made space for this Bill by withdrawing the previous one. The penny dropped for me about the difficulties of a missing person’s property effectively being left ownerless when I heard the father of a woman who was missing explain the problems. He has heard me say this before, but he is a solicitor and must know how to handle bureaucracy, so this is a real problem. Peter...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Poverty (6 Apr 2017)

Lord Henley: Latest statistics to 2016 show 3.2 million working-age adults in working families living in relative low income before housing costs. This compares with 2.8 million in 2010. In terms of percentages, in 2016 this equates to 8% of all working-age adults and similarly in 2010 this was also 8% of all working-age adults. However there are currently record numbers of people in work – 2.8...
