Recent appearances

  • Bill Presented: Clause 1 — Charge and rates for 2015-16 25 Mar 2015

    Is my hon. Friend interested, as I am, in the line developed by the Liberal Democrats that the 50p rate was in place only at the end of the previous Labour Government for a very short time?
  • Bill Presented: Clause 1 — Charge and rates for 2015-16 25 Mar 2015

    Indeed. This is all about the choices made to bring down the deficit. We made a choice—a forward offer or plan—to use a higher top rate of income tax to bring down the deficit, and the Liberal Democrats decided to vote against that strategy.
  • Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities 25 Mar 2015

    When the Chancellor decided to increase VAT, he must have asked Treasury officials to produce projections on its likely impact on the economy at that point. It would be interesting, would it not, to compare the projections given to him by Treasury officials with an official report, which this new clause suggests should be commissioned, to see whether the two tally up?
