Domestic Abuse - Question for Short Debate (22 Mar 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: I was also pleased to see acknowledgement of the need to improve how the immigration system deals with victims of domestic abuse who have no recourse to public funds, and the support for Southall Black Sisters, whose work in this area has been an inspiration. It is good to see proposals designed to enable ratification of the Istanbul Convention. Do the Government have a target date...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Kirstene Hair: ..., and it is undeniable that we have come a long way since then. Unemployment is now at lows last seen in the mid-1970s, and not even in the years before the last recession were so few people out of work. Indeed, we used to debate whether such low unemployment rates were even possible in a modern economy and whether “full employment” these days means simply a higher level than...

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) Bill (21 Mar 2018)

Jim Shannon: place for it, and we are now seeing the benefits. Again, as I am sure others would agree, we would love to see even more of that, as we would if we had a functioning Assembly that was able to work. I thank the Secretary of State for setting the rate, but is there a way to lower it for households on the threshold of help, and indeed for those that receive no help? They now have yet...

Margaret Greenwood: The Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016 is having a profound impact on the lives of many of the most vulnerable in our society—the disabled, single parents, pensioners and children growing up in poverty—through a range of policies, accompanied by severe reductions in social security introduced in the 2015 Budget and what we are seeing with the roll-out of universal credit.

Scottish Parliament: Universal Credit (Impact of Income Tax Starter Rate) (21 Mar 2018)

Jeane Freeman: It is not, of course, the Scottish Government’s fault that individuals receive less as a consequence of the UK Government’s rules on universal credit. I have explained that the UK Government’s rules on universal credit, which is a benefit that it controls, say that it will be calculated after tax. Therefore, when we increase an individual’s income as a consequence of...

Finally, I would like to highlight the five key improvements made by this Conservative-led Government for early years and child care.

Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port: Scottish Welfare Powers (20 Mar 2018)

Margaret Greenwood: My hon. Friend makes a really important point, but I am so short of time. In Scotland, some 50,000 households with three or more children are in receipt of tax credits. From April 2017, families no longer received support through child tax credits or universal credit for any third or subsequent child born on or after that date. That also applies to new UC claims. On top of that, the abolition...

Other Proceedings: Welsh Affairs (19 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: I join colleagues who have paid tribute to the work of Lord Crickhowell and Lord Richard. Lord Richard was from Ammanford, my home town, and although I am not that familiar with the work of Lord Crickhowell, I certainly pay tribute to the work of Ivor Richard and his incredible contribution to developing the devolution settlement in our country of Wales. The Secretary of State’s remarks...

Women and Work — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (14 Mar 2018)

Alok Sharma: Unfortunately we do not have time for a long debate on this, but as I have said previously in the House, the welfare changes we have brought forward actually ensure that work pays. The hon. Lady will disagree, but I am sure that she will welcome the money made available in terms of childcare costs, as the hon. Members for Burnley (Julie Cooper) and for Airdrie and Shotts (Neil Gray) and my...

Universal Credit: Free School Meals - Question (14 Mar 2018)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, perhaps I may put the question for the third time. At the moment, if someone reaches a certain level of income, they lose free school meals but at that point they gain working tax credit, which is worth much more.
