Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: income tax and capital gains tax (19 Oct 2017)

Mel Stride: I do not think that is true, because we have a national minimum wage that certainly applies to under-25s. However, as Mr Walker has suggested, we are probably going slightly beyond the scope—fun though it is—of the actual matter in hand.

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Margaret Greenwood: I cannot give way, as I must make progress. The reality, according to the Trussell Trust, is that food bank referrals have increased by more than double the national average in areas in which the universal credit full service has been rolled out. The Peabody Trust says that the arrears rate for its tenants in receipt of universal credit is three times that for tenants unaffected by universal...

Social Security Support for Kinship Carers (18 Oct 2017)

Caroline Dinenage: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Owen. I congratulate the hon. Member for Great Grimsby (Melanie Onn) on securing this important debate on social security support for kinship carers. She has raised a number of important issues and I am glad that she has taken the opportunity to highlight the invaluable work that kinship carers do. They truly are the unsung heroes,...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Trading and property allowances (17 Oct 2017)

Ruth George: Obviously, universal credit is being rolled out. That will be a particular detriment to people on very low incomes who are self-employed, because they will be deemed to earn the minimum wage on 35 hours a week throughout the year: around £13,600. If their actual income is below that at the moment, they can receive tax credits and are eligible to apply if they have children and a family....

Clean Growth Strategy: UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (12 Oct 2017)

Penny Mordaunt: I will happily come to the mental health issue later, but, as hon. Members will be aware, PIP is a better benefit by quite a dramatic degree for those who have a mental health condition, when we look at the number of those with a mental health condition who are on the highest rates of the daily living and mobility components of PIP and compare that with DLA. Let me make some progress, but I...

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Tracy Brabin: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Ruth George) for securing this much needed debate. We have heard some interesting and important contributions. I will just go through a few of them; unfortunately, time does not allow me to mention everyone. My hon. Friend the Member for High Peak powerfully claimed that the...

Finance Bill: Termination payments etc: amounts chargeable on employment income (11 Oct 2017)

Eddie Hughes: I often think, when I get to my feet in the Chamber, that my job is not really to talk to the people in the Chamber. I am sure that there are many clever people in here—far better educated than me—who know all the complex details of the Bill and the nuances of the financial implications. But my job is to represent the people of Willenhall and Bloxwich in Walsall North. If they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Oct 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: I hope that the whole House will join me in paying tribute to the late Rodney Bickerstaffe, the former general secretary of Unison who died last week. He will be remembered for his warmth and the esteem in which he was held throughout the Labour movement and throughout the community. More than that, he, almost more than anyone else, made sure that the national minimum wage happened in this...

Race Disparity Audit (10 Oct 2017)

Dawn Butler: I thank the First Secretary of State for early sight of his statement. There is value in putting all the data together in one portal, but what matters most is what the Government are going to do about the problems that have been identified. For some years, the Women’s Budget Group and the Runnymede Trust have been looking at some of the burning issues, including the impact of austerity...

Scottish Parliament: Employment Support (4 Oct 2017)

Jamie Hepburn: I welcome this opportunity to update Parliament on progress towards the delivery of the fair start Scotland employment support service, one of the first powers devolved under the Scotland Act 2016. This is an important milestone for employment support in Scotland and an opportunity to make employment services work differently and more effectively for the people of Scotland. The Scottish...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Pay Gap (4 Oct 2017)

Gordon Lindhurst: Last spring, the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee undertook an inquiry into the economic impact of the gender pay gap in Scotland. We heard from a large range of witnesses, and I thank everyone who gave us their views during the inquiry. Whether they did so in written evidence, in Twitter stories, in case studies, at formal meetings or during committee visits, all their views helped to...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (Roll-out) (3 Oct 2017)

Jeane Freeman: Actually, what was mentioned at the Conservative Party conference—believe me, I will get to it—was what we already have. The only new thing that was said was that people will be told up front that they can borrow that money. It is a loan. I will not welcome something as parsimonious as that. The Tories tell us that universal credit is meant to mirror employment, but who waits six...

Scottish Parliament: Youth Football (26 Sep 2017)

Johann Lamont: I am pleased and privileged to open the debate on behalf of the Public Petitions Committee. The committee will consider a report on its work on petition PE1319 in due course, but we felt that it would be useful to afford the Parliament as a whole the opportunity to be part of the debate and for members to be able to contribute any comments or suggestions about youth football and how the...

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

James Kelly: Councils all across Scotland have faced £170 million in cumulative cuts because of the votes of those on the SNP benches who are here today. The reality is that when Derek Mackay tells us that he wants a debate about taxation, he has an army full of civil servants and yet he asks the other political parties to come up with their suggestions on taxation—it comes down to, “Send...
