Frank Field’s most recent quote is: “For the secretary of state not to answer letters shows either a huge discourtesy to parliament or a sign that the government knows the game is nearly up in trying to present this mega-reform as a success. I don't know if the DWP is deliberately concealing information about universal credit or is simply incompetent. Either way, it is not good enough. This has obvious echoes in the far greater failure of not paying hungry claimants on time.”. To see more examples Frank Field’s views and opinions, check out the section below.

Frank Field quotes

Aug 30 2017

If the prime minister were to pick up this bill and run with it, at nil extra cost to the government, she would tackle overnight one of the great injustices afflicting children in this country – a widening of inequalities at school caused by a lack of food during the holidays. Likewise she would immediately be cutting off one of the main supply routes to food banks.feedback

Work and education are the best routes out of poverty. Employment levels are at a record high, and there are 590,000 fewer children in workless families compared with 2010.feedback

Jul 06 2017

The poverty pay and shoddy treatment meted out to some of those workers is, sadly, inevitable in the absence of statutory minimum standards in the gig economy. That generates huge profits while minimising tax payments.feedback

Jun 27 2017

Understanding that is fundamental to getting a regulatory regime in place that will stop a repeat of BHS. Of course, the regulator and Sir Philip have a shared interest in keeping the details quiet. But that cannot be the public interest.feedback

Jun 27 2017

This report confirms that Sir Philip Green stripped BHS bare and then left it for dead, with contemptuous disregard for the pensioners. But we knew that. What this watered-down version of events doesn't let us do is assess the strength of the Pensions Regulator's case against Sir Philip, and how well they played that hand.feedback

May 21 2017 - Labour Party

In the event of a defeat on 8 June, Jeremy's manifesto must be the point from which a new parliamentary Labour party alone chooses a parliamentary leader who is able to build trust and legitimacy with the electorate. For the new parliamentary leader not to start from here, and to revert to Blairism, would miss the point of just how much Jeremy has changed centre-left politics. The test which must be passed in the new parliament is to combine a popular programme with a leader who possesses prime ministerial qualities.feedback

May 11 2017

It does seem a marvellous business model if you can get away with it.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Uber

Companies in the gig economy are free-riding on the welfare state, avoiding all their responsibilities to profit from this bogus 'self-employed' designation while ordinary tax-payers pick up the tab.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Uber

It is clearly profit and profit only that is the motive for designating workers as self-employed.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Scottish independence

It [the government] has now had time to take on board the fact that under its stewardship of the fifth richest country in the world, too many children are stalked by hunger.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Scottish independence

Abolishing hunger during school holidays is beyond the ability of individual community groups and volunteers alone. It needs, above all, a government lead in giving local authorities duties to convene churches, community groups, businesses, schools and public bodies in their area.feedback

Apr 23 2017

Sir Philip Green remains on the hook. When parliament comes back from the election we need to pursue the charge sheet from the Pensions Regulator against him and what the Pensions Regulator got in return. Once we have done that, we will realise how inadequate his settlement was. He has not done enough to hold on to his knighthood. It's rather good that Mrs May is waiting for all the reports to come in before she makes a recommendation to the honours forfeiture committee. The case against Sir Philip will continue in the new parliament.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - London

We must be concerned about those families where money will not be passed on. The older people I speak to are worried about how their grandchildren will cope. Money skipping the generations is not really a solution. There are lots of people who have nothing to hand on and never will. I've long argued that you should pay less tax the more you distribute your capital. Tax rates should be higher if you keep your capital intact and you should be rewarded for distributing it. Muck's only good if it's spread around.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Uber

My worry is that as a result these companies contribute little to the public purse or our social safety net. They are not paying sick leave, National Living Wage, or contributing to pensions. Yet it seems that their employment practices will lead more people to need taxpayers to pick up these costs.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Uber

Quite frankly the Uber contract is gibberish. They are well aware that many, if not most, of their drivers speak English as a second language – they recently lost a court case trying to escape Transport for London's new English testing rules for private hire drivers – yet their contract is almost unintelligible. These companies parade the 'flexibility' their model offers to drivers, but it seems the only real flexibility is enjoyed by the companies themselves. It does seem a marvellous business model if you can get away with it.feedback

Apr 01 2017

Not long after he refused to shift on a ludicrous 23-year recovery plan for the BHS scheme, he agreed a 13-year plan for Arcadia with well over double the deficit contributions. I imagine Green would say Arcadia could afford it because it was profitable, whereas BHS was not. But it is clear that all his companies are run as one large tax-efficient empire in the family interest.feedback

Mar 16 2017

I couldn't think of a better way of rubbing the noses of BHS pensioners and the 11,000 people who lost their jobs in his mess than hosting a birthday party at one of the most expensive hotels in the Britain.feedback

Mar 04 2017

It [the restriction] makes the job more tiresome, slows it down, and creates more work for constituents. It's barmy and unnecessary, and it's a major barrier to justice.feedback

Mar 03 2017

The gig economy is producing wave after wave of evidence on the grim reality of life at the bottom of Britain's labour market.feedback

Jul 25 2016

One person, and one person alone is ultimately responsible for the BHS disaster.feedback

Apr 30 2016

The spine of our inquiry is looking at how and where money went out of the company, to whom it went, and how this may have disadvantaged the pensioners.feedback
