Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Second Reading (17 Nov 2015)

Lord Blencathra: ...cynics rubbish the less glamorous and technical end of the scale. I am thinking of catering, for example, which is often scorned as low-grade work. I suppose that an apprenticeship to serve a skinny latte at Starbucks would be a bit thin, but what about the 15 kids Jamie Oliver took and trained to be really good chefs? That was quality training in cooking which we should not scoff...

Living Wage — Question (5 Nov 2015)

the Earl of Courtown: ..., and the sooner that we have more parity in that, the better. She also mentioned the retail industry. I should point out that from next April, when the national living wage will be paid, Lidl, Starbucks, Costa, Morrisons, Amazon and Mitie have all committed to pay the national living wage.

Education and Employment Opportunities — Motion to Take Note (22 Oct 2015)

Lord Blencathra: ...profits and increase unemployment. Enhanced company profits earned on the back of poverty wages is not moral capitalism. As for unemployment, is it seriously being suggested that the major supermarkets, Amazon, Starbucks and Pret A Manger—every 10 yards on the pavement—are employing additional staff because they are cheap and that if they had to pay more they would lay staff...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 34 - Group relief (13 Oct 2015)

Rob Marris: Facebook, which, we heard this week, appears to be adhering to UK legislative rules, but to its considerable financial advantage. That suggests that the UK legislative rules adhered to by the Facebooks, Starbucks and Googles of this world are not sufficiently tight. I am concerned that clause 24 goes in the wrong direction on that issue.

Scottish Parliament: Employment (30 Sep 2015)

Jackie Baillie: education. The SNP has voted against that. It chooses instead to maintain a Tory tax cut at the expense of children’s education. I hope that that changes. A Labour Government would take action so that companies such as Starbucks and Amazon pay their fair share of taxes. It speaks very much to the choices made by the SNP Government that a company such as Amazon, which failed to pay...

Scottish Parliament: Agriculture (Challenges and Opportunities) (23 Sep 2015)

Richard Lochhead: ...streets, with exponential growth forecast to continue for years to come. We spend £80,000 a day on coffee. However, consumers will be shocked to learn that when they buy their coffee at Costa on Princes Street or at Starbucks in Dumfries, the milk in their caffè lattes or cappuccinos will have been sourced from outside Scotland. That is a missed opportunity, when many Scottish...

Health: Diabetes — Question for Short Debate (2 Jul 2015)

Baroness Young of Old Scone: ...We have to press the commissioners and the providers to look at new ways of providing that vital education, using new technology, online opportunities, peer learning groups, lay educators, flexible times and flexible locations. We have provided programmes based in Starbucks and in village halls. We need to find ways that are as attractive as possible to that huge range of people now...

Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL] — Second Reading (Continued) (8 Jun 2015)

Baroness Wheatcroft: ..., but gradually local businesses, whether grocers, department stores, dairies or local newspapers, were taken over, generally by businesses headquartered in London or the south-east. Simultaneously, Starbucks and McDonald’s have plagued our high streets. The end result is that local, professional firms, whether accountants or printers, again lost business to the big firms of...

Bills Presented: Devolution and Growth across Britain (3 Jun 2015)

Anna Turley: ...Swales made a big contribution both to the constituents of Redcar as a diligent and hard-working constituency MP, and in the House, most notably in his role on the Public Accounts Committee, where he led the corporate tax avoidance hearings involving Starbucks, Amazon and Google. I thank the people of every corner of my constituency who put their faith so decisively in me to stand up and...

Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Clause 41 — The Pubs Code (24 Mar 2015)

Andrew Griffiths: ...—profitable and successful—businesses for the people who invest in them. We all recognise that in the modern world, where there is the constant redevelopment and repackaging of the offering in the service industry, be it from Starbucks, Costa Coffee or the local pub, there is a dramatic need for investment. If a pub does not have investment, looks shabby and down-at-heel, does...

Scottish Parliament: In-work Poverty (18 Mar 2015)

Neil Findlay: ...many of whom are young people just setting out on their working lives. At the same time, eye-watering profits are being made by some of the world’s biggest and most wealthy companies, such as Google, Amazon, Starbucks and Apple. Those companies practise tax avoidance on an industrial scale, sucking vast sums of money out of the wage packets of the poor and the budgets of the services...

Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Report (2nd Day) (9 Mar 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: not a pub, and Clause 71 enables the Government to exempt Harry Ramsden’s from the regime. Similar examples will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We will look at the points made today about Harry Ramsden’s and Starbucks in developing the code. My noble friend Lord Hodgson was concerned about potential unintended consequences and asked for more to be done in the Bill....

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day]: Tax Avoidance (11 Feb 2015)

Charlie Elphicke: ...Union and the nature of the parent-subsidiary directive. They should be ashamed of themselves. Nor did they do anything to deal with the problems of international tax avoidance. Companies such as Starbucks, Amazon, Google and Apple—the list goes on—pay hardly any tax in this country because the tax rules were set up in the 19th century and are not fit for purpose. In the past...

Foreign Exchange Transactions (3 Feb 2015)

Austin Mitchell: ...shares are bought and sold, the transaction is time-stamped. In the United States, as a result of an amendment to the Government Securities Act in 1993, a time stamp must be used when Government securities are bought and sold. I do not know what the case is with gilts here, but trades in gilts should certainly be time-stamped. When someone buys a Starbucks coffee, it is time-stamped, yet...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Corporation Tax (Northern Ireland) Bill (27 Jan 2015)

Jim Shannon: in Northern Ireland. This means that it could put any profits made elsewhere back into the Northern Ireland branch, saving on corporation tax. Concern about that was expressed in the Westminster Hall debate. Big US companies such as Starbucks, Google and Amazon have all been accused of tax dodging entirely or of paying considerably less than they should. What steps will be taken to...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Diverted Profits Tax (7 Jan 2015)

Jim Shannon: ...on those issues from the Minister. The hon. Member for Amber Valley set the scene well in his introduction. Although £10 million might seem like a lot of money, I will put it in perspective. In 2011, Starbucks, a global company that has come into disrepute again for not paying any tax—its coffee is lovely but there is an issue to address elsewhere—made £398 million in...

Funeral Services: Clause 17 — Retention of relevant data (9 Dec 2014)

John Martin McDonnell: ...with local authority staff in 2009. Two Derby city council employees watched her when, as Derby Telegraph’s local government correspondent, she met four current and former council employees in a Starbucks coffee shop. The local authority said that RIPA was used to get surveillance authority for officials because they were protecting the council’s interests. The consequences for...

Autumn Statement — Statement (3 Dec 2014)

Lord Razzall: that there should be a 25% tax on the profits of a multinational company earned in the United Kingdom. Is he able to expand on that? I understand that one of the arguments of companies such as Amazon and Starbucks is that they do not make any profits in the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (3 Dec 2014)

Margaret Hodge: ..., particularly by challenging the mismatch between the form of a company’s structure and the substance of its activities, which is a key recommendation from the Public Accounts Committee. This week, Starbucks announced that it will pay no corporation tax in the UK for the next three years. Can he tell the House when the measures that he has announced will be implemented and how they...

Opposition Day: [10th alloted day] — The Economy (26 Nov 2014)

Gordon Birtwistle: ...the problem; we are working on it and are approaching 2 million apprenticeships. I am proud to be the apprenticeship ambassador for the Government. I travel to all sorts of different companies including Starbucks, Next and Rolls Royce—every aspect of business—to talk to young people who believe that they can create prosperity for themselves, the companies they work for and the...
