Armed Forces Pay — [Steve McCabe in the Chair] (14 Sep 2017)

Stephen Morgan: ..., in the near future. The Navy is an intrinsic part of my home city, its DNA and my own family’s history, and the naval dockyard is hugely significant to the local economy. A tenth of Portsmouth’s workforce is employed there, either in the armed forces or as part of the civilian workforce who support the Navy’s work there. I pay tribute to all their work, but for...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day) (13 Sep 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, Amendments 69A and 69B, which my noble friend Lord Hunt has put forward, seek to include credit hire agreements and the commissioning of medical reports within the scope of claims management regulation.

We also spent a lot of time debating the imposition of tuition fees and the removal of the nursing bursary. The nursing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Sep 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: The only problem is that more people in work are in poverty than ever before. More are in insecure work, and more rely on tax credits and housing benefit to make ends meet.

A young woman called Aisha wrote to me last week. She says: “I...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (13 Sep 2017)

Elaine Smith: For as long as I can remember, I have had a passionate interest in housing, probably because, as a child in a working-class family, I lived in a privately rented tenement building with an outside toilet and a bed recess in the kitchen. We moved to a council house and the luxury of a bedroom and a bathroom due to a massive house-building programme by the Labour Government of the time. I then...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Stella Creasy: ...for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman), was right to talk about people feeling the squeeze. We know that for many of our constituents there is too much month at the end of the money.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Free Childcare (11 Sep 2017)

Tracy Brabin: In their manifesto, the Government said that they would deliver high-quality childcare for working families, supported by thousands of new nursery places every year. However, as they roll out their policy of 30 hours of free childcare, Ministers have admitted that 110,000 children of working parents will not be eligible for the extended childcare entitlement simply because their parents do...

Digital Understanding - Motion to Take Note (7 Sep 2017)

Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho: ...have heard, Facebook revealed that many thousands of dollars of political ads were bought by Russian trolls during the US election, and I am sure there will be more revelations to come. The internet promised us flexible, creative work that could be done anywhere.

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Gregory Campbell: ...to the BBC, but have had to come to this Chamber to raise these serious issues. I use the term “fat cats” because some of the best people in the BBC are the lowest-paid: the foot soldier producers and editors who work long shifts and arrange all the programmes. I have long argued for maximum transparency from the BBC. I have several concerns. The first relates to pay...

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (7 Sep 2017)

Rona Mackay: I thank Alex Rowley for bringing this important and necessary debate to the chamber. The words “universal credit” are misleading and cruel because they give the illusion of something for everyone, whereas the reality is that it is anything but that. Universal credit, which was introduced by the Tory Government at Westminster, is merely a euphemism for more Tory austerity. It is...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (6 Sep 2017)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ..., very full reply and I will certainly need to take Hansard away and have a read of that, but I would like to pick up one or two points.
