Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day] — Tax Avoidance and Multinational Companies (3 Feb 2016)

Helen Goodman: ...—on the one hand, a large pharmaceutical company that does a great deal of research and development and employs a large number of people to make a new drug, and, on the other, a company such as Starbucks, which registers its name in Luxembourg, seemingly purely as a tax avoidance device. Between those extremes there is a continuum and Google is somewhere in the middle. It has done...

Enterprise Bill [Lords] (2 Feb 2016)

Graham Evans: These days, pubs are not only competing with other pubs—they also have to compete with high-street cafés such as Starbucks. Does my hon. Friend agree that it is therefore essential that we encourage investment in pub facilities?

[Philip Davies in the Chair] — Small Businesses: Tax Reporting (25 Jan 2016)

Sammy Wilson: ...with things that small business does not. The measure will apply to small businesses but not to large ones, yet all the time the headline news is about how the latter—whether it is the Googles or the Starbucks —seem to walk away from their tax responsibilities. People will find it difficult to understand why there should be a greater onus on small businesses to declare their...

HMRC and Google (Settlement) (25 Jan 2016)

Stewart Hosie: ...tax should be paid at 100%, plus interest, plus a 30% penalty. May we have his assurance that that was rightly not applied in this case? Finally, given the difficulty the Netherlands got into with the Starbucks deal and Luxembourg got into with the Fiat deal, when the Commission insisted they recoup between €20 million and €30 million extra, should the Google deal not be put to...

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: ...as 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: ...in 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: ...is 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: ...company 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...
