Capital Needs of Co-operatives (25 Apr 2018)

John Glen: 2015. The Treasury consulted on the technical details of MDS in late 2016. We received representations from a variety of mutual insurers, consultants, and industry groups. It emerged from the consultation and follow-on work that the industry sought to issue MDS that, first, qualified as top-tier capital under relevant prudential regulation, and, secondly, had no ill effect on the...

Written Answers — Treasury: Child Tax Credit (25 Apr 2018)

Mel Stride: Providing support for a maximum of two children in tax credits and Universal Credit is about ensuring those who receive income related benefits face the same financial choices as those supporting themselves solely through work. The government also recognises that some claimants are not able to make the same choices about the number of children in their family and consequently has provided...

Scottish Parliament: Social Security (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Apr 2018)

Mark Griffin: ...and short term. The Child Poverty (Scotland) Act 2017 confirmed that this Parliament refuses just to turn a blind eye; the time for acting on those sentiments is now. In the face of the transition to universal credit, the benefit freeze and further austerity, we can and should set a different path. Inflation may be falling, but the weight on family weekly budgets is still too much to bear....

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [Lords]: Debt respite scheme: advice to the Secretary of State (24 Apr 2018)

Yvonne Fovargue: ..., because the current timeframe centres on the establishment of the SFGB, which is potentially moveable. I have proposed a realistic target, allowing sufficient time for the necessary preparation work. I am assured of that by the debt advice providers themselves; they say it gives enough time to plan and develop the new systems to deliver the new protections to all. Let us not forget that...

Windrush: Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill (23 Apr 2018)

Rishi Sunak: be second homes, which are at least partially furnished and occupied on occasion. My hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall will know that the coalition Government ended the presumption of a council tax discount for such second homes and levied a stamp duty surcharge on them. I will return to those measures when I respond to some of the other points raised. My hon. Friend the...

Written Answers — Treasury: Treasury: Revenue and Customs (23 Apr 2018)

Mel Stride: HM Treasury (HMT) has a policy partnership with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to develop and deliver tax policy. The Policy Partnership is not a document or policy, but is rather the term used to describe the relationship between HMT and HMRC. HMT leads on strategic work and tax policy development, supported by HMRC. HMRC leads on policy maintenance and delivery, supported by HMT. The...

Written Answers — Treasury: Revenue and Customs: Preston (23 Apr 2018)

HMRC are working with colleagues in DWP to complete planning as a matter of urgency and will let HMRC staff know the outcome as soon as possible. While there will be HMRC staff delivering Tax Credit work in Preston until 2022, there are no plans for any additional work to be located there.

Backbench Business: UK Oil and Gas Industry — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (19 Apr 2018)

Claire Perry: ...left in the continental shelf, which could be worth up to £1 trillion. If we continue to responsibly explore and extract those hydrocarbons, use them in the most economically effective and responsible way, and work on decarbonisation, there is a great opportunity for north-east Scotland and the whole of the United Kingdom. The challenge of the security of supply has been interesting...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Social Security Benefits: Children (18 Apr 2018)

Kit Malthouse: ...the immense value of care given by family and friend carers, who look after children whose parents are unable to provide the necessary care themselves. This was discussed during the passage of the Work and Welfare Reform Act 2016. Family and friend carers are able to receive support for the children in their care through the benefit system as they have access to child benefit and child...

Housing and Planning Act 2016 (Database of Rogue Landlords and Property Agents) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret (17 Apr 2018)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...rental market. This Government have a strong track record in cracking down on rogues and driving up standards in the sector. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Palmer of Childs Hill, for the cross-party working that we have had across the Floor with all noble Lords in this House and in the other place. I am happy to commit to continue that. In the plethora of measures referred to by the noble...

Leaving the EU: Tourism and the Creative Industries — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (17 Apr 2018)

Kevin Brennan: it looks as though we will have to come back after the vote. I congratulate the hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) on securing today’s debate. She rightly pointed out the huge workforce challenges that Brexit presents to the creative industries and tourism and she made important points about musicians and the need for a single EU work permit. I also congratulate...

Easter Adjournment (29 Mar 2018)

Ian Mearns: not want to shun trade with our continental neighbours, but to suggest that defending jobs at home is to shun trade abroad is simply false. De La Rue provides hard-fought-for, well-paid jobs for some 600 workers at the Gateshead plant alone, about 100 of whom work on printing British passports. I would not ordinarily promote the Daily Mail, but its online petition opposing this decision...

Written Ministerial Statements — Treasury: Employer Supported Childcare (29 Mar 2018)

Elizabeth Truss: This government is providing more help with the cost of childcare to working parents than ever before. As well as introducing Tax-Free Childcare in April 2017, the government has doubled the free childcare available to working parents of 3 and 4 year olds in England to 30 hours a week, and increased the support available through Universal Credit to cover up to 85% of childcare costs.

Scottish Parliament: Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan 2018 to 2022 (29 Mar 2018)

Angela Constance: ...and childcare and affordable housing reflect our determination to tackle poverty, as does the £100 million annual investment to offset the damage of UK welfare cuts, including the full mitigation of the bedroom tax. Our challenge is not just to mitigate UK Government cuts, but to lift people out of poverty. Before discussing the detail of the plan, I thank all those who have...

Women and Equalities: Universal Credit (29 Mar 2018)

Kit Malthouse: The hon. Gentleman is mistaken in seeing welfare reform work in isolation from all the other assistance that has been offered to the low-paid, and in particular to women. Other measures, such as shared parental leave, the right to request flexible working, the 30 hours of free childcare and indeed the 85% of childcare funded through universal credit—or 600 hours of free childcare in...

Opposition Day: Local Government Funding (28 Mar 2018)

Drew Hendry: ...last year. While the Scottish Government protect local authority budgets, the UK Government leave them paying the price for the austerity agenda. Highland Council is a good example of the impact of universal credit on local authority budgets. As many Members will know, the constituency of Inverness was a pilot area. We went through the live service and then full service roll-out in June...
