Ian Murray: ...of the 10p income tax provision in the Scotland Act 2012. The new clause would not prevent the Bill from proceeding; it would merely allow the Secretary of State to bring to the House a report on the progress of implementation. There is another difficulty. The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right—the Scottish Parliament could produce a report and submit it—but I cannot, in the...

Baroness Hollis of Heigham: My Lords, I support the comments made by my noble friend Lord Smith about the increasing frailty of the existing council tax structure to bear the responsibility we ask of it.

In fact, the ratio of the top...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Recycling: Household Figures (29 June 2015)

Mark Durkan: I thank Mr Beggs for his questions. I certainly concur with the Member's view that, the easier and more attractive it is to do something, the more people will do it.
