Scottish Parliament: Gender Pay Gap (Companies) (19 Apr 2018)

Jamie Hepburn: Although the full-time median gender pay gap in Scotland is lower than the United Kingdom figure—6.6 per cent, compared to 9.1 per cent—some of the figures that employers have reported highlight the very real challenge that remains to further reduce the gender pay gap. We need employers to take actions that improve the position of women in the workplace and in wider society. The...

Scottish Parliament: “Local government in Scotland: Challenges and performance 2018” (19 Apr 2018)

The First Minister: That is what we are doing. We just agreed to a budget—I appreciate that Labour voted against the budget—that delivers a real-terms increase in the revenue budgets for local authorities. We are transferring resources from the national health service into social care, so that we not only build up social care services to help local authorities with what they do...

Laser Misuse (Vehicles) Bill [Lords] (Programme): Industrial Strategy (18 Apr 2018)

Matt Warman: This debate is about the future, so I want to talk about the 19th century. To set the scene, new technologies are sweeping away centuries-old techniques, placing whole professions at the risk of extinction. The year is 1841, and a royal commission is publishing its report on the condition of handloom weavers. Back then, 100,000 handloom weavers had lost their jobs in just 10 years thanks, in...

Fishing: East Anglia: Austerity: Life Expectancy (18 Apr 2018)

Philippa Whitford: The hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Louise Haigh), whom I commend for securing the debate, spoke a lot about the impact of austerity on health and social care. To pick up on that, I should say that austerity has a triple impact. Spending on health and social care ends up being strangled, as we have seen: the reduction of the annual climb in expenditure from 3.5% to approximately 1%. Of the...

More than 10,000 companies have reported their gender pay gap, which shows that the Government...

Scottish Parliament: Aberdeen Trades Union Council (17 Apr 2018)

Keith Brown: I thank Lewis Macdonald for bringing the debate to the Scottish Parliament. As others have, I congratulate the members of Aberdeen Trades Union Council, past and present, on reaching their 150th anniversary. When the council was established, in 1868, its mission, as we have heard, was the emancipation of the working classes. There has been mention of Disraeli and others, but it strikes me...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Productivity (17 Apr 2018)

Philip Hammond: My hon. Friend is asking the right question. The only way to deliver a high-wage, high-skill economy of the future and to sustainably raise living standards is to raise our productivity growth rate.

Has the Minister asked for a distributional analysis of the impacts that he has just been talking about?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Productivity (17 Apr 2018)

Philip Hammond: Not for the first time, I do not recognise the picture of our economy that is painted by Opposition Front Benchers. Figures today tell us that we have new record high numbers of people in employment, and new record low unemployment figures. That should be something that we are celebrating. Real wages are forecast to turn positive from this quarter and to go on growing thereafter. Employment...

UK Convergence Programme - Motion to Approve (16 Apr 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, we are holding this debate today in the context of weeks of key Brexit debates ahead. It seems odd to be debating a Motion on the issue of convergence as we embark on weeks of debate about how we will leave the EU. I will not make this speech Brexit heavy but focus on what the Motion asks us to approve. The Motion asks us to approve the Autumn Budget 2017 report and the most recent...

Lord Henley: My Lords, the order was laid in the other place on 8 February 2018. Providing workers with transparency over their employment rights underpins good work. It leads to a motivated and productive workforce. In the Government’s response to the Taylor review of modern working practices, we welcomed the principle of increasing transparency to workers. The order goes beyond the...
