Global Challenges — Motion to Take Note (2 July 2015)

The Bishop of Worcester: ...is my Neighbour?, which was issued before the election, places emphasis on our belonging to a community of communities at home and a family of nations internationally. I quote: “Just as the myth of personal autonomy distorts human communities, so the illusion that a nation can flourish without strong international alliances distorts the bigger picture of our shared humanity”....

Business of the House: English Votes on English Laws (2 July 2015)

Angus MacNeil: We will let you have full fiscal autonomy.

Devolution — Question (2 July 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean: ...to consider the implications of devolution for each part of the United Kingdom; and whether they plan to publish a white paper setting out the consequences for the rest of the United Kingdom of fiscal autonomy for Scotland.

Attorney General: Serious Fraud Office (2 July 2015)

Nick Smith: The SFO going cap in hand to the Treasury when it wants to take on a major case could mean delaying justice. Why not let moneys recovered by the SFO be kept by it so that it has autonomy?

Scotland Bill: Clause 24 — Universal credit: costs of claimants who rent accommodation (30 June 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

Ian Murray: ...for Public Policy Research. Devolving housing benefit to Scotland would allow for a more holistic approach to housing policy in Scotland, affording the Scottish Parliament and, crucially, local authorities far greater autonomy to tailor delivery to suit local and regional needs and circumstances. It would also transfer to the Scottish Parliament significant new resources with which to deal...

Scotland Bill: Clause 19 — Disability, industrial injuries and carer’s benefits (30 June 2015) See 6 other results from this debate

Eilidh Whiteford: ..., other discretionary payments and the sanctions regime. Our clear view is that the proposed powers over discretionary housing payments in clause 22 fail to deliver the Smith commission recommendation for autonomy because they are subject to various restrictions. As the Scottish Government said in their response to the Scottish Parliament’s Devolution (Further Powers)...

Public Bill Committee: Education and Adoption Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 June 2015)

...measures, but they have to be counterbalanced with very strong professional development of teachers. All the international evidence suggests this. The countries that do best in education have strong autonomy and accountability, but also a very strong sense of how they are going to develop their teachers. I am not sure whether that is in the scope of the Bill, but I would say that you need...

Bills Presented — Local Area Referendum (Disposal of School Playing Fields): New Clause 33 — Full fiscal autonomy for Scotland (29 June 2015)

New Clause 33 — Full fiscal autonomy for Scotland

Bills Presented — Local Area Referendum (Disposal of School Playing Fields): New Clause 1 — Independent Commission on Full Fiscal Autonomy (29 June 2015) See 12 other results from this debate

Ian Murray: ...my word for it. The Scottish Trades Union Congress general secretary, Grahame Smith, commented that the Scottish Government’s own accounts were “a sobering reminder of some of the risks of full fiscal autonomy”. That is from the trade unions in Scotland. The Scottish Government sneaked out their own oil and gas bulletin, their first since May 2014, last week on the last...

Bills Presented — Local Area Referendum (Disposal of School Playing Fields): Clause 16 — Tax on carriage of passengers by air (29 June 2015)

Graham Stringer: ...of hindsight—the proposals that the Government are making might well have been those that should have been put before the House after the 1997 general election, with us now moving towards full fiscal autonomy for the Scottish Parliament. It was a fundamental mistake to set up a Scottish Parliament with mainly spending powers and no tax-raising powers, apart from the plus or minus 3p...

Bills Presented — Local Area Referendum (Disposal of School Playing Fields): Scotland Bill — [2nd Allocated Day] (29 June 2015) See 4 other results from this debate

David Mundell: ...devolution of powers, with Scotland retaining around £11 billion of income tax receipts. That accounts for over 90% of income tax receipts collected in Scotland. This gives Scotland greater fiscal autonomy, with incentives to increase employment and increase wage growth. I emphasise to Members that there are no restrictions on this power. If the Scottish Parliament wants an income tax...

Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day)(Continued) (29 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Lord Berkeley: ...under the memorandum, including its mandate from the Secretary of State. (4) Any memorandum under subsection (2) shall have regard to the Secretary of State’s duty under section 5 of the 2012 Act (the Secretary of State’s duty as to promoting autonomy) by— (a) promoting autonomy and avoiding placing unnecessary burdens on the combined authority, and (b) specifying the key...

Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day) (29 June 2015)

Lord Scriven: ...in the Bill. I hear what the Minister says about this being an enabling Bill, but there needs to be something in it that gives a framework—not a straitjacket—to understand the kind of fiscal autonomy that local authorities could have. If there is not, then we are, fundamentally, talking about a local government finance system that is not fit for the 21st century possibly being...

Constitution: Gracious Speech — Motion to Take Note (25 June 2015)

Lord Steel of Aikwood: ...SNP based its financial forecasts at the time of the independence referendum on oil income at $105 per barrel. It has since fallen below $50 per barrel and is forecast to stay below $60 for the foreseeable future, which is why full fiscal autonomy is a dangerous myth. Thirdly, that is why we need a constitutional convention or commission which would include more than just the political...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (24 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

David Cameron: The Bill that we put in front of this House does deliver the Smith commission; it fulfils the vow that all of us have kept. Of course, what it does not fulfil is the full fiscal autonomy that the hon. Gentleman’s party would like, which would land Scottish taxpayers with a bill of thousands and thousands of pounds. If that is his policy, when he gets up to speak, he should say so.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Barnett Formula: Review Report (23 June 2015)

Daithí McKay: ...that the IFS has the Barnett consequential data, yet devolved Administrations, including the Assembly and the Scottish Parliament, seem to be denied that same information. That, in a sense, is quite disrespectful of our autonomy as devolved institutions, and I certainly feel that, in our interests and those of the people whom we represent, that should be challenged. Mr Bradley argued...

European Union (Finance) Bill: Clause 1 — EU finance decision: approval, and addition to list of Treaties (23 June 2015)

Angus MacNeil: He would keep it all in London. If that were to happen, we would need full fiscal autonomy, or indeed independence, to ensure that areas of Scotland were well protected.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — English as an additional language (Pupil Support) (23 June 2015) See 1 other result from this debate

Nick Gibb: I agree that a school’s success is not to do with its name, but there is something about the freedom that academy status brings that enables innovation and professional autonomy to raise standards. Again, I cite King Solomon academy. It is run by some remarkable young people, most of whom are Teach First teachers; the head teacher, Max Haimendorf, became a head teacher in his late 20s....

Education and Adoption Bill (22 June 2015) See 8 other results from this debate

Wes Streeting: ...and its results have improved enormously. I am proud of the programmes the Labour Government introduced, such as the sponsored academies programme, which has delivered investment and greater freedoms and autonomy for our schools, excellence in cities and the London Challenge, tackling poor school performance, increasing educational achievement and tackling the inequality and educational...
