  • Alok Sharma praises local flood heroes in Parliament
    volunteer flood wardens in places such as Purley and the soldiers of the 7th Battalion the Rifles for the work they are doing to help my constituents I welcome the schemes the Prime Minister has talked about to help individuals and businesses Will he ensure that the details of those schemes are made available to everyone affected so that they can make use of them The Prime Minister My hon Friend makes an important point I know that he is working very hard to bring people together in his own constituency to make sure that everything that can be done in Reading is done Obviously they will be concerned about the rise in the Thames We will publish details of all the announcements I have made and we will add into that the fact that the major banks are coming forward with more than 750 million of financial support which will mean repayment holidays reduced or waived fees loan extensions increased flexibility of terms and specialist support teams deployed on the ground for businesses and farmers who desperately need help It is a time for our insurance companies and our banks to demonstrate real social responsibility I believe that they

  • Alok Sharma backs Government policies on job creation and education
    225 in December 2013 compared with 635 when we came into government The key is getting students ready for the workplace and like many of my colleagues I have run careers fares At the last one 1 200 students came along to talk to 60 companies I run employability workshops with local employers which are the sort of thing we ought to be doing to ensure that our young people feel there is a way forward Let me read a few comments that I received from people who attended that employability workshop Navjit Gill said The interview and networking skills session was really useful I learned a lot about what to do in interviews Elijah Seville Williams said The workshop taught me about interview techniques which will prepare me for getting a job later That is what we should be doing as Members of Parliament Many employers in my constituency are creating many jobs small companies as well as larger ones Tesco has just set up a new distribution centre and I was pleased to be part of supporting that There are almost 1 200 new jobs but also 85 jobs for the long term unemployed I went to a graduation ceremony last year for people who had not had a job for a long time but had finally found employment through that scheme It was an incredibly emotional graduation People were there with their grandchildren and parents from across the social spectrum real people whose lives were being turned around The reason why companies such as Tesco are confident about creating those jobs is that they have been given that confidence as a result of this Government s policies Business confidence is up in the Thames valley The Thames Valley Business Barometer published a few weeks ago showed that

  • Alok Sharma urges Ofgem to be firm with energy companies on direct debit payments
    ensure that energy companies set direct debits at a fair and reasonable level Alok Sharma Reading West Con My hon Friend is a huge consumer champion not just on this issue but on many others More power to his elbow He makes a good point about the way in which direct debits work They are not a panacea Last week I received an e mail from my constituent Mr Balfour who told me that his 87 year old father had built up a 1 400 credit because he was paying by direct debit According to Ofgem direct debits are meant to be set on a fair and reasonable basis Does my hon Friend share my view that we should define in more detail what fair and reasonable means Robert Halfon My hon Friend makes a hugely important point and I suspect that the Minister will have more to say about it I welcome the fact that the Government are forcing companies to compensate customers such as his constituent who have been mis sold or overcharged I know that the Department of Energy and Climate Change has asked Energy UK to set up direct debit best practice guidelines Hansard Alok Sharma

  • Alok Sharma supports Deregulation Bill as good for business
    across many many cases on which given our way we would certainly have deregulated yet we found that directives made it impossible for us to do what we would have liked to have done That is of course one of the reasons why if there is a Conservative Government after the next general election we will be seeking to renegotiate our relationship with the EU and then as long as the Opposition do not prevent this putting that to the British public in a referendum It is also one of the reasons why we are trying to pass the referendum Bill right now and we will bring it back and do so Hansard Alok Sharma My right hon Friend the Minister for Government Policy made the point that there is a lot of regulation that we can do nothing about because of EU regulation If the hon Lady cares so much about regulation why will she not support the European Union Referendum Bill Chi Onwurah I know that the Government face a real challenge in keeping their Members off the subject of Europe but perhaps in this debate on deregulation they will understand that we are not here to discuss the potential of a referendum I will come on later to talk about the relevance of Europe to the matter under discussion Europe is not the issue that confronts my constituents today My constituents are being hit by the cost of living crisis and the measures that this Government not Europe have brought in to ensure that their wages do not rise at the same rate as prices Hansard Alok Sharma I am not sure how often the hon Lady talks to business but perhaps she saw the submission from the British Chambers of Commerce which said The BCC supports

  • Alok Sharma calls for more help for small businesses
    has been available to only a restricted number of people A friend of mine who works in business and is not particularly partisan politically has acknowledged that the Government have made a huge effort in cutting red tape However as he says perhaps the time has come not just to take an axe to red tape but to take a chainsaw to unnecessary red tape and regulation I am pleased that we have gone from one in one out to one in two out but why not one in three out or none in four out One reason for not doing that is that the Government are constrained by EU regulation I welcome what the Prime Minister said following the proposals made by his business taskforce on cutting back EU regulation I understand that yesterday the Leader of the Opposition referred to a tweet containing greencrap I have just started tweeting and am thinking about tweeting after this debate with EUredtapecrap because of the enormous amount of EU regulation that is holding back our businesses The issue of increasing competitiveness is felt not just in the UK but by Governments in Berlin Stockholm Amsterdam and perhaps even Paris If Opposition Members really care about business they should back the European Union Referendum Bill I hope they will turn up tomorrow to support it because that is the best way of delivering change in the EU and ensuring that we get rid of some of this regulation In the remaining two minutes I have two quick points One relates to simplifying the tax system overall through the merger or the simplification of income tax and national insurance and the second is about closing the equity funding gap In the 2011 Budget the Chancellor talked about merging national insurance and income tax
