Scottish Parliament: Early Learning and Childcare Provision (29 Sep 2016)

Daniel Johnson: The Parliament holds consensus as one of its key virtues. The procedures that we adhere to, the committee structures and even the building’s architecture were designed to promote agreement on the issues that are important to Scotland. That is not always how it works out, but I think that we all agree that this is one of those issues on which we do agree. We agree that tackling...

Scottish Parliament: Rural Economy (European Union Referendum) (27 Sep 2016)

Jamie Greene: We welcome this debate on the Scottish rural economy and Brexit. It is good to see that some parties are not afraid to have a debate on Brexit. However, believe it or not, not everyone who lives in rural Scotland is a farmer, a fisherman or a forester. Many are, of course, but our perception of rural Scotland is often clouded by the funds, grants, subsidies and quotas that tend to dominate...

Universal Basic Income (14 Sep 2016)

Damian Hinds: Helping people on relatively low incomes to increase their incomes by moving up the hours scale or the earnings scale is of course an objective that the hon. Lady and I share. That is why we have made the childcare reforms that I alluded to and brought in the national living wage, which will affect people who were previously on the national minimum wage but will also have a ripple effect on...

Friends the Members for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) and for Enfield, Southgate (Mr Burrowes) on securing this important debate on social justice. My hon. Friend the Member for Congleton in particular is a very committed and diligent campaigner on these issues, and I thank her...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (13 Sep 2016)

Jon Trickett: I join others in welcoming those on the Front Bench and the creation of a Department that is going to deal with industrial strategy. The country is badly unbalanced at the moment and we will support any realistic thorough-going industrial strategy that is developed. We know how the strategy has gone over the summer—BHS has gone bust, with 11.000 jobs gone. Sports Direct is paying less...

NHS: Health and Social Care Act 2012 - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2016)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, it is a pleasure to be involved in today’s debate, although it is a troubling area of policy. The Minister has heard me on this before. The introduction of this legislation and the way that things have gone have not been a happy tale for the National Health Service—and, most importantly, for too many patients who look to the National Health Service and rely on it. We...

Civil Society and Lobbying - Motion to Take Note (8 Sep 2016)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, as I understand it, the Government have put on hold the rules regarding the lobbying activities of organisations that receive taxpayers’ money. They are right to do so because their thinking is very confused. It is not anti-government to seek the best welfare for our fellow citizens. It is not anti-government to seek the highest standards of health and safety. It is not...

Business of the House (8 Sep 2016)

Nick Smith: Parliamentary scrutiny of Sports Direct has helped employees get a better deal from a rogue employer. May we have a debate on how a good increase in the minimum wage leads to some employers cutting back terms and conditions for their staff, resulting in a net reduction in pay? That cannot be right.

Employment: Remuneration - Question (8 Sep 2016)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, there is an irony in this Question being answered today, in that later today we will consider a statutory instrument which makes a welcome increase to the national minimum wage by the order of 25p per hour.

Scottish Parliament: Living Wage in Scottish Football (8 Sep 2016)

James Dornan: I thank Willie Smith and Scott Robertson, who have been fighting for fairness for our young football players for many years. Without their tenacity and determination to do the right thing, we would not be having this debate today. Scottish football employs thousands of people across the industry.
