Scottish Parliament: Child Poverty (21 Sep 2017)

The First Minister: It was really unfair of Alex Rowley to personalise the debate by bringing Anas Sarwar into it. The problem, as Anas Sarwar clearly illustrates, is that there is a massive gulf—a gulf as wide as the Clyde—between what Labour says and what it does. We have a Labour leadership candidate who lectures others about doing the right thing on pay, yet his own family...

Scottish Parliament: Finance (Income Tax) (20 Sep 2017)

Tom Mason: I am pleased to speak in favour of the amendment that was lodged by my colleague Murdo Fraser. I remind colleagues that I am still a councillor on Aberdeen City Council. The motion that has been lodged by the Labour Party is an interesting one. The issue of personal taxation is of real concern for the people whom we represent. Unfortunately, there is one clear and simple conclusion that can...

Scottish Parliament: Care Sector (19 Sep 2017)

Shona Robison: We welcome Age Scotland’s contribution as a strong advocate for older people and their services, and we recognise that Age Scotland and other organisations have highlighted the need to focus on dealing with recruitment and retention issues in some areas. We have integrated health and social care services, in the most radical reform of the national health service in Scotland since 1948....

Children: Gambling Advertisements - Motion to Take Note (14 Sep 2017)

Lord Sugar: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Chadlington, for bringing this very important debate to the House. I apologise in advance if what I am about to say repeats some of his points, or those of the eloquent noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, who made some very good points. I am sure that many of your Lordships will know of somebody who was addicted to gambling. Your Lordships will also know...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink Strategy (14 Sep 2017)

Rhoda Grant: Lorne Crerar may have a home in the Highlands, but he is not normally Highlands and Islands based, and he is not part of that industry. What the people in the Highlands and Islands are missing is somebody who works in the food and drink industry, in farming or in crofting, who knows how difficult it is on the front line and who can bring that knowledge and experience to the council. Because...

Members:...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Karen Lee: I am pleased to speak in this Opposition day debate on the public sector pay cap. I was elected as a Labour MP for Lincoln on a fully costed manifesto, and I am proud to be a member of the shadow Treasury team. Our NHS is chronically understaffed, and there are not enough nurses, doctors, midwives, healthcare support workers, housekeepers, occupational therapists or physios—I could go...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The Institute for Fiscal Studies reports that English graduates have the highest student debts anywhere in the world. The poorest students now graduate with an average debt of £57,000. Who is responsible for that situation but the Prime Minister’s party and the Liberal Democrats? We are in the middle of an economic slowdown. The Office for Budget Responsibility says that there is a...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (13 Sep 2017)

Pauline McNeill: If we all agree that living in a warm and affordable home is a basic right—I hope that we do—we are a long way from that being a reality. It is a fact that the social housing sector is shrinking. It was 32 per cent of households in 1999 and is now 23 per cent. We are not building homes fast enough to grow the sector. “Generation rent” has been adopted as a phrase as...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Stephen Barclay: The debate has been wide-ranging, covering virtually every aspect of the Bill. That is right and proper for a Bill of such importance. We have heard a number of impressive contributions, including two maiden speeches. The hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden) made a powerful and assured maiden speech in which he rightly talked about the cultural richness of Liverpool. His reference...

Nationally, the International Monetary Fund has upgraded the growth...

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Lord Taverne: My Lords, I will concentrate on the effect of the Government’s decision to stay out of the customs union, their plans for controlling immigration even though that is not yet an official paper, and the prospects of a new referendum. First, I find so depressing the Government’s complacency and lack of realism. This is one factor why our negotiators seem much better at losing friends...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Consumer Prices Index (12 Sep 2017)

Stephen Barclay: In their March 2017 Economic and Fiscal Outlook, the OBR forecast that CPI inflation would be 2.4% in 2017, up from 0.5% in 2016 as the depreciation in sterling and rising commodity prices fed through to higher prices. The OBR forecast inflation to be 2.3% in 2018, before falling back to 2.0% in 2019. The Government has taken action to support people with the cost of living by increasing...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Weekly Earnings (12 Sep 2017)

Margot James: That is one of the reasons why the Government have introduced the national living wage, as a means of boosting the earning power of people at the lower end of the pay scale. I acknowledge that average earnings have been static over the past year, but it is important to recognise that people on the national minimum wage were given a 4% pay rise in April this year, and 1.3 million of those...
