Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Pay Cap (25 May 2017)

Nicola Sturgeon: In the most recent pay review, the Scottish Government submission included a commitment to paying the real living wage, a guarantee of a minimum increase of £400 for staff earning £22,000 or less, the continuation of our policy of no compulsory redundancies—all three of those policies are different from those elsewhere in the UK—and a 1 per cent pay increase for staff...

Scottish Parliament: National Health Service Pay (10 May 2017)

Colin Smyth: We support partnership working if we can deliver the pay rise that we want for all staff across the UK. That is what will be contained in the Labour Party’s election manifesto.

School Funding: North-east of England — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (26 Apr 2017)

Nick Gibb: I will not give way now, because of lack of time; I apologise. Overall, 10,700 schools would gain funding under the new national funding formula, and the formula will allow those schools to see gains quickly, with increases of up to 3% in per-pupil funding in 2018-19 and 2.5% in 2019-20. Some 72 local authority areas are proposed to gain more high-needs funding, and they would also do so...

Scottish Parliament: Carers and Social Care (26 Apr 2017)

Mr Mark Ruskell: I declare an interest in that I am a councillor. This is probably the final time that I will declare that interest. I also declare my financial contribution of the final year of my council salary that I made to Stirling Carers Centre, which is a wonderful organisation that supports young people who cope with the most unimaginable level of responsibility in their lives. Alison Johnstone told...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Employment income provided through third parties (25 Apr 2017)

Rob Marris: During the coalition Government, fiscal policy was unnecessarily tight and our constituents paid the price. After seven years, we have moved to a position where, despite the Prime Minister in her election campaign saying that taxes will be lower under a Conservative Government—she has not actually said lower than what—this year, on projections which of course may or may not come...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Income tax charge for tax year 2017-18 (25 Apr 2017)

Kirsty Blackman: I warmly welcome the new hon. Member for Copeland (Trudy Harrison) to what is left of this short Parliament.

Post Office Closures — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Tim Loughton: That is a very important point that I would like to come on to; it is a question about why the Post Office is not growing rather than retrenching. In 2016, the Post Office announced the closure of 31 Crown post office branches— even though the Crown offices are now breaking even, after making a £46 million loss four years ago. Some of those post offices have not been converted into...

Scottish Parliament: Poverty Alliance Survey (25 Apr 2017)

Angela Constance: The real question is about why people are on low incomes in the first place. It can be because they are in work and on poor pay, which is why this Government is committed to doing everything that it can to promote and support the living wage—unlike the UK Government south of the border, which, of course, holds the powers in relation to minimum wage legislation. As more and more people...

Scottish Parliament: Child Tax Credit Cuts (25 Apr 2017)

Ruth Davidson: I agreed with her then, and I still do. The First Minister gave monetary examples, so let me put them in context. A one-parent family with two children where the parent works 16 hours a week on the minimum wage can claim monetary benefits of just under £19,000 a year. Added to salary, that comes to the equivalent of an earned income of £32,000. I cite those figures only to give...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (24 Apr 2017)

Clive Betts: The Secretary of State will be aware of the Select Committee’s two reports into social care. Rightly, a lot of attention was given to funding, but also to the situation of the care workers who provide this important service. The Committee heard that nearly half of workers leave within a year of getting a job, half are on zero-hours contracts, many do not get paid for travelling time, in...

Business of the House (20 Apr 2017)

Valerie Vaz: I thank the Leader of the House for giving us the business for the very last week of this short and eventful Parliament; I will save my further thanks for the end of my response. This was an eventful Parliament, not least because of the death of PC Keith Palmer, Leslie Rhodes, Aysha Frade, Kurt Cochran and now Andreea Cristea, as well as the injury of many others. As the dean of Southwark...
