Parliamentary Proceedings: Statistics - Question for Short Debate (18 Jan 2017)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...imported some clever “'Yes Minister” tricks to your Lordships’ House from the Civil Service.

DWP Estate — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (18 Jan 2017)

Chris Stephens: ...they “don’t know”. All these points are important, because if the Government do not know all those things, why are they so certain that jobcentres should close in Glasgow?

Is it because of the public backlash that the DWP has already...

Education Funding: Devon — [Mr David Hanson in the Chair] (18 Jan 2017)

The House of Commons Library says that the full brunt of the social security cuts will not be felt until the mid-2020s; by then, overall net savings will...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Supplementary Payment (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (16 Jan 2017)

Eamonn McCann: ...would have been the case. Nevertheless, we should not make absolute statements when the facts do not justify them. One of the key facts about all this is that, as child benefit and child tax credit regulations are lifted from across the water, it will mean that people who have more than two children will be penalised.

UK Maritime Industry (12 Jan 2017)

Alistair Carmichael: ...—it is winding its way through the courts. I am afraid I have to say that the willingness of the shipowners in those cases to leave the seafarers they employ effectively destitute does them no credit.

Wales Bill - Report (2nd Day) (10 Jan 2017)

Baroness Morgan of Ely: My Lords, I wish the Minister a happy new year. It is extremely good news that the Welsh Government were able to come to an agreement with the UK Government on the impact of partial income tax devolution to Wales and the other taxes due to be devolved as a result of the Wales Act 2014.
