Stories involving Luciana Berger

Berger hits out at Government use of interns

Government funded arts and sports organisations have employed more than 800 unpaid interns in the past two years, new information has shown.

Research carried out by the Labour MP Luciana Berger showed that in the last two years 884 unpaid interns were employed by 34 organisations funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Ms Berger said: "Unpaid internships limit the opportunities for people who cannot afford to work for free. As well as pressuring the private sector to abandon this practice, it's vital that wherever possible the government pays interns the national minimum wage."


Govt loses green deal vote

The Government has lost a vote on an apprenticeships programme which would form part of its flagship Green Deal energy efficiency initiative.

An amendment, tabled by shadow climate change minister Luciana Berger, was passed in the public bill committee examining the bill this evening. It states that the Government will report to parliament on proposals for an apprenticeships scheme within the Green Deal.

Ministers had been set to vote against the amendment, but instead abstained, allowing it to pass.

Ms Berger said: "Low-carbon companies will be crucial in driving growth in the UK economy and with the Government tripling tuition fees, apprenticeships will be an attractive route into a skilled job for many young people."

 


Luciana Berger reports stalker

Labour MP Luciana Berger has made a report to the authorities about a stalker. The man, who is reported to be from the United States, is also suspected of sending messages to other female MPs.


Labour pushes carbon cuts

Labour MPs have launched a renewed bid to force the Government to set targets for carbon reduction through its Green Deal programme.

Ministers refused this week to commit to a plan for cuts through the flagship programme, which provides private sector loans to homeowners installing energy efficiency measures. But Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Minister Luciana Berger has submitted a fresh clause to the report stage of the Energy Bill demanding a "road map" of how much carbon the Government will cut, and how it intends to do it.


MPs in carbon cuts bid

Opposition MPs will launch a bid next week to make the government set out how much carbon dioxide it plans to cut through its flagship Green Deal programme.

Luciana Berger will submit a new clause on behalf of Labour MPs sitting on the committee scrutinising the Bill. The clause demands that the government outline “specific aims” for how much carbon the programme will cut, along with how this will be achieved.
