Recent appearances

  • Bill Presented: Finance (No. 2) Bill 25 Mar 2015

    My hon. Friend talks about the policies that are being put in place by the Government to help businesses. Does he share my view that the freezing of fuel duty has helped not just businesses but individuals, and can he tell us how much of a saving businesses and individuals make every time they fill up their vehicle?
  • Bill Presented: Finance (No. 2) Bill 25 Mar 2015

    My hon. Friend is being generous in giving way. I welcome the diverted profits tax and I think that my constituents will very much welcome that measure. Will he confirm that it comes on top of all the work the Government are leading at the OECD and that, in September or later this year, we will therefore see further rules coming in to clamp down on base erosion?
  • Bill Presented: Finance (No. 2) Bill 25 Mar 2015

    My hon. Friend is talking about fairness in the tax system, which we all want. Will he confirm that under this Government the top 1% of taxpayers will pay more in tax than they ever did under the previous Government?
