Criminal Finances Bill: Social Security and Pensions (21 Feb 2017)

Caroline Nokes: ...loss of indexation—for example, maintaining the triple lock in this Parliament. Since 2011, the basic state pension has risen by £570 a year more than it would had it been uprated by earnings. Work, not welfare, is the best and most sustainable route out of poverty, which is why our tax and welfare reforms are designed to ensure that work pays and that increased earnings are...

Criminal Finances Bill: Proceedings under this Schedule (21 Feb 2017)

Ben Wallace: ...of almost all forms of serious and organised crime, which directly affects the most vulnerable in society. The Bill will significantly improve our ability to tackle money laundering, corruption, tax evasion and terrorist financing. It is a key part of the Government’s critical work to reduce the flow of dirty money into the City and to cut off the funding streams to the fraudsters,...

Government Services (Telecommunication Charges) (21 Feb 2017)

Chris Stephens: ..., eliminated. It would ask Government Departments to conduct an assessment for each local authority area of the provision of public computer equipment capable of being used by Department for Work and Pensions claimants, for example, and to publish the results.

Commonwealth Development Corporation Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (9 Feb 2017)

Baroness Sheehan: ...it or add conditions and safeguards—in short, no means to carry out our responsibility to give it proper scrutiny and make refinements which the Government may in time have come to appreciate. This is a pity, because taxpayers’ money—quite a lot of taxpayers’ money—is being moved from under the jurisdiction solely of Governments to an organisation which is not...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Points of Order (9 Feb 2017)

Louise Haigh: ...believe that I am having to raise Concentrix in the House again, but after the scandal that broke around that company HMRC announced that it would never again use a private provider to deal with tax credits, especially in relation to error and fraud. But today the Government have issued a written ministerial statement saying that they will transfer tax credit error and fraud to the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Work and Pensions: Fraud, Error and Debt Measures (9 Feb 2017)

Damian Green: We are committed to ensuring an effective and accurate benefit system, as part of creating a welfare system which is fair to those who use it, and fair to the taxpayers who fund it. An important part of this is recovering money owed to the Government through overpayment of benefits. Fraud and error in the DWP benefits system is historically low, and at 1.9% is lower than in 2010. Claimant...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Impact assessments (7 Feb 2017)

Patrick Grady: ...am not giving way. One of the key agreements of the UK’s renegotiation in earlier years was that the UK would be able to establish a four-year period before non-UK EU nationals have access to in-work benefits such as tax credits, child benefit and housing benefit. It is unclear whether the new deal that is done with the EU will enable the UK to impose such restrictions. The Scottish...

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill - Report (7 Feb 2017)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: ...the health of the nation. That is why it was a Conservative-led Government which introduced the first life sciences strategy in 2011. More recently, we have introduced a range of measures through the taxation system to create good conditions for business growth and to encourage business investment. These include: R&D tax credits for small and medium-sized enterprises; R&D...

Public Bill Committee: Local Government Finance Bill: Local retention of non-domestic rates (7 Feb 2017)

Marcus Jones: ...for the Comptroller and Auditor General to lay in Parliament a statement of accounts setting out the annual results of the non-domestic rating scheme will be retained, but the list of debits and credits required for that account is being removed from primary legislation. Instead, the amounts to be credited and debited to the account will be such relevant receipts as the Treasury may...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (6 Feb 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: ..., Revenue & Customs, payday lenders, utility companies and catalogue lenders—there is a very large number of them. A median client would be aged about 45, female and owing about £20,000 to eight different creditors, so it is a significant problem that people get into. Within that, with a tremendous requirement now for debt advice, with lots of people struggling with debt,...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (6 Feb 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...to in subsection (3)(a) of Clause 31. Amendments 82A and 82B ensure that, in addition to the gas and electricity suppliers, information may be shared with licensed electricity distributors and gas network distributors for the purposes of requirements which may be made to them by Ofgem in future. Clause 31(4) already provides the power by regulation to add electricity or gas network...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (6 Feb 2017)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...we have seen a number of failures in managing data. The Information Commissioner said in her recent briefing distributed to all noble Lords: “Transparency and a progressive information rights regime work together to build trust”. This part of the Bill gives the Government considerable powers to share data. But those building blocks in restoring trust that the Information...

Child Poverty in the Uk (Target for Reduction) Bill (3 Feb 2017)

Dan Jarvis: My right hon. Friend speaks with experience of implementing a target in government, and I know that we are all grateful for the work that he and many others did. He is absolutely right. The reality is that if any Government were serious about reducing the number of children who grow up in poverty, they would seek to set themselves a target. That is the very essence of what this debate is all...

Technical and Further Education Bill - Second Reading (1 Feb 2017)

Lord Storey: ...education is at best “pretty b….. awful”, and he is absolutely right. We pretend that we do careers education, but we do not: “There is a cupboard with some books in”, “Here is the latest government initiative”, and “here is what work we might do”. These are young people whose futures are in our hands so we have a responsibility to make...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: [2nd day] (1 Feb 2017)

Gary Streeter: ...8221; and as far as I am concerned that settled the matter. I will of course be voting for the Bill this evening. I want to make three very quick points. First, I believe that the Prime Minister deserves personal credit for her leadership on Brexit since she emerged last July. Casting our minds back to the extraordinary events of last summer, we were shell-shocked, not knowing where the...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Social Security Benefits: Rutherglen and Hamilton West (1 Feb 2017)

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill (31 Jan 2017)

Liam Byrne: I know that experts are no longer in fashion among Conservative Members, but the Office for Budget Responsibility is clear that, because of higher inflation, people on tax credits will be poorer, not richer, over the next couple of years. I genuinely believe that the Brexit Secretary does want to protect hard-working families, but let us see him put his money where his mouth is by arguing...

Immigration Rules: Spouses and Partners — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (31 Jan 2017)

Gavin Newlands: ... the Member for Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East (Stuart C. McDonald) on securing this morning’s important debate. Immigration visa matters are among the most common constituency casework for MPs. Putting the complexity of the UK immigration system to one side, I struggle to put into words my frustration with a system that lacks any common sense. It is incredibly...
