Written Answers — HM Treasury: Fraud (24 Feb 2017)

John Martin McDonnell: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how much (a) HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and (b) other bodies working on behalf of HMRC have spent from the public purse on tackling (i) fraudulent tax credit claims, (ii) benefit fraud, (iii) tax avoidance and (iv) breaches of minimum wage legislation in each year since 2010.

Local Government Finance (22 Feb 2017)

Clive Betts: Absolutely. The system in Germany may not be one that we could immediately transfer over here, but the people there said to us that 20 years ago they sat down and dealt with this on a cross-party basis and got cross-party agreement. They are now having to put up their contribution rates, but they are doing so with cross-party agreement and with general public support because they have in...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Monks: My Lords, as general secretary of the European Trade Union Confederation for eight years, I was keenly aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the EU. I will pick out a number of quick points. It has been a very successful institution in spreading peace, freedom and democracy in the south and east of our continent after the collapse of the dictatorships in those countries—remember...

Criminal Finances Bill: Social Security and Pensions (21 Feb 2017)

Eilidh Whiteford: I am glad we are able to debate these orders simultaneously. The Scottish National party will obviously not oppose the social security uprating order, and we certainly welcome the pensions uprating order, but this is an opportunity to put on record, again, our deep concern about the ongoing impact on low-income households of the freeze on working-age benefits. We are particularly concerned...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rate Resolution (21 Feb 2017)

Gillian Martin: I will come on to the other side of the coin later in my speech. The rhetoric that we have all heard—the claims that taxing higher earners a little bit more penalises hard workers or people with aspirations—is, frankly, offensive to everyone who works hard for whatever wage they can earn, whether they are skilled or unskilled. We all work hard and aspire to live a life that is...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Living Wage: Enforcement (20 Feb 2017)

Jane Ellison: The Government is determined that everyone who is entitled to the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and National Living Wage (NLW) receives them. Anyone who feels they have been underpaid NMW or NLW should contact the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100. HM Revenue and Customs reviews all complaints that are referred to them. The offences under which employers can be prosecuted cover all rates of NMW...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

Paul Blomfield: I will make progress, because I am mindful of Mrs Laing’s comments. New clause 7 should command support across the House. The Government have been working with our partners in the OECD on efforts to avoid a race to the bottom on corporation tax, and new clause 7 endorses that work, while new clause 2 would commit the Government to “maintaining all existing social, economic,...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Communities and Local Government: Cleaning Services (7 Feb 2017)

Marcus Jones: Cleaning services in buildings managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government are outsourced under a facilities management contract. Suppliers are responsible for setting rates of pay for their staff and rates for cleaners vary dependent on location and market rates. They have informed the department that they currently pay, as a minimum, the National Living Wage for cleaning...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children: Day Care (7 Feb 2017)

Caroline Dinenage: The latest census data on the provision of education for children under 5 years of age shows there are approximately 1.34 million 3- and 4- year old children benefitting from funded early education places: see Table 2, https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/education-provision -children-under-5-years-of-age-january-2016. Included in this figure are approximately 430,000 children who are...

Written Answers — Home Office: Home Office: Cleaning Services (6 Feb 2017)

Sarah Newton: Cleaning services across the department are outsourced. Suppliers are responsible for setting rates of pay for their staff and rates for cleaners vary dependent on their age, location and market rates. They have informed the department that they currently pay, as a minimum, either the National Minimum Wage or the National Living Wage for cleaning the department’s buildings.

Parking Places (Variation of Charges) Bill (3 Feb 2017)

David Tredinnick: I do agree. I shall discuss the impact the Bill will have throughout the country later in my speech, along with some other figures. First, I shall indulge my hon. Friend by referring to the Portas review, which showed clearly that car parking charges were the biggest barrier to the regeneration of our town centres. That is perhaps no surprise when we consider the fact that the average hourly...

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: Church Commissioners: Pay (3 Feb 2017)

Caroline Spelman: The National Church Institutions (NCIs) of the Church of England are made up of five charities which employ staff through a common employment scheme. Information about the pay of members of the NCIs is published in the NCIs annual reports, the Church Commissioners annual report is laid before Parliament and is available in the House of Commons Library. The NCIs have two different employment...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of 100% of non-domestic rates (2 Feb 2017)

Jim McMahon: That problem relates to my earlier comment about the need for a transition period when aligning staff terms and conditions and salaries. The truth is that staff employed by local authorities and private social care providers are on significantly worse terms and conditions than those of their NHS counterparts who have similar responsibilities to them in hospitals. The Government do not have...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (2 Feb 2017)

Justine Greening: This is an important issue. We have introduced the living wage to make sure that all people get the minimum wage they need to be able to live effectively. We do not have a Treasury Minister on the Bench today, but I will absolutely make sure that one of them responds to the question the hon. Lady raises.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Melanie Onn: The Bill is certainly very difficult and there are lots of complex issues. I am sure that many Members on both sides of the House would appreciate having longer to discuss these issues. New clause 9 would require the Government to produce a plan to ensure that EU workers’ rights will be maintained in United Kingdom law before withdrawal from the EU. I wonder whether we will see such a...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Minimum Wage (1 Feb 2017)

Gloria De Piero: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many employers in (a) Ashfield, (b) Nottinghamshire and (c) England were found to be paying employees below the national minimum wage in 2015-16; and what action was taken against those employers.

Scottish Parliament: State Pension Inequality (1 Feb 2017)

Gail Ross: I feel very privileged to be able to take part in the debate, and I thank Sandra White for bringing this very important topic to the chamber. I welcome our WASPI guests to the public gallery. Of course, we should not have to debate the issue, and I should not be standing here about to recount stories from women I know who feel let down and left behind by the Government at Westminster. It is...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Stephen Kinnock: Michel Barnier was referring to the article 50 process; the article 218 process, which will define our future end-state relationship with the EU, is a completely different matter. It is worth noting as well that Michel Barnier has quoted a figure of €60 billion as the cost of leaving the EU. It is therefore time that the Government levelled with the British people. The very best we can...

Severn Bridges — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Jessica Morden: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right; this issue has ramifications for the whole economy of Wales, in south Wales and beyond, including his constituency. I thank him for being here today and for making that point. Getting more clarity about the direction of travel is important for my constituents who commute, the businesses who do business across the bridges and those who work on the...
