NHS and Social Care: Impact of Brexit - Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2016)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...has been a very helpful debate for me. It has been interesting and insightful, and provocative at times, and has also brought to my attention issues that I had not taken on board before. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Watkins, for tabling this debate. It has come earlier than I might have liked, because I have not had a chance to think about all the issues raised, but that is no bad...

Backbench Business: Summer Adjournment (21 Jul 2016)

Siobhain McDonagh: The vote to leave the EU a few weeks ago is a great indication that there are millions of people in our country who feel that they are being left behind, not sharing in the growing prosperity of others. And they are right. Unemployment may be down according to certain definitions, but poverty certainly is not. For one of the first times in UK history, low wages mean most of Britain’s...

School Funding: Business of the House (21 Jul 2016)

David Winnick: In view of what the Leader of the House said earlier, may I remind him that it was a Labour Government who introduced the national minimum wage against strenuous Tory opposition?

Lord Lester of Herne Hill: My Lords, I first commiserate with the noble and learned Lord, Lord Keen of Elie, in having to lie upon another bed of nails. Through him, I also congratulate the right honourable Liz Truss MP on her appointment as Lord Chancellor, a great office of state whose origins may be traced to Anglo-Saxon times. In her study of the office, Diana Woodhouse observed that there were no qualifications...

Charter for Budget Responsibility (20 Jul 2016)

John Martin McDonnell: I think the argument is sound. Until we obtain a fiscal rule that reflects the reality of our economy and our future, we will not return to the dynamism that is needed to restore growth and to ensure that we have wages and jobs that are beneficial to the community overall rather than the low paid and insecure work that we have at the moment. Let me press on, because I do not want to strain...

Student Loans Agreement — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (18 Jul 2016)

Helen Jones: I beg to move, That this House has considered e-petition 131167 relating to changes to the student loans agreement. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard, this afternoon. It may come as a surprise to some people that we are debating this issue in July 2016, as the decision was taken last autumn, but the reason is very simple: it took students some time to realise...

David Davies: The Minister will be aware that some people who provide social care are booked to do just a few minutes at each job and spend much of the day travelling at their own expense. This does not breach minimum wage legislation, but does the Minister agree that it is none the less wrong and that we should try to address it?

Baroness Sharp of Guildford: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for initiating what has proved to be a very timely debate, given the commitment made by our new Prime Minister yesterday evening.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jul 2016)

David Cameron: The right hon. Gentleman is right that democracy is a splendid thing—I have to agree with him about that. Let me answer very directly on exploitation in the workplace.

It is this Government that has massively increased the power of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority. There...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Poverty (13 Jul 2016)

Damian Hinds: Work is the best route out of poverty, which is why this Government is focused on getting people into employment. Since 2010, 2.5 million more people are in work and average household incomes are at a record high. We are reforming the tax and benefit system to ensure work will always pay more than a life on benefits. That is why we are raising the tax-free personal allowance to £11,500...

Wales Bill: Legislative competence (11 Jul 2016)

Lindsay Hoyle: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Amendment 148, page†2,†line†33,†leave out “subsection (2)(b) does” and insert “subsections (2)(b) and (2)(c) do”. The amendment restores the Assembly’s competence by enabling it to legislate in an ancillary way in relation to reserved matters. Amendment 149,...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (6 Jul 2016)

Baroness O'Loan: My Lords, the referendum is done. No matter the analysis and debate about what was said in the pre-referendum debate, we are where we are. The EU Committee on 4 May last set out graphically the complexity of the consequences and processes of withdrawal and the various dynamics of the environment in which withdrawal will be negotiated—the fact that our future relationship with the EU...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 Jul 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: I think today it would be appropriate if we paused for a moment to think of those people who lost their lives in the bombings in Baghdad and Medina in recent days—the people who have suffered and their families at the end of Ramadan; it must be a terrible experience for them, and I think we should send our sympathies and solidarity to them. I join the Prime Minister in wishing Wales...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Baroness Walmsley: My Lords, I am proud to speak from the Liberal Democrat Benches, where we have a leader whose position is secure and who has the support of all of us. I am also proud that it was a Liberal Democrat MP, Tom Brake, who took the only real action to secure the position of EU citizens living and working here. Yet these are small consolations to me today because I have such concern about the effect...
