Business of the House: Backbench Business — UK Drugs Policy (30 October 2014)

Sarah Wollaston: ...view on the taking of drugs, other than my objection to people supporting one of the most evil worldwide businesses or cartels.

Corporation tax has passed its sell-by...

Lord Razzall: My Lords, at the G8 meeting last year—it is now the G7—the Prime Minister led on the question of tax avoidance by the multinational companies that we all know, such as Starbucks, Amazon and Google.

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [1st day] (4 June 2014)

Charles Walker: ...8217;s Revenue and Customs crafted in a very aggressive way. These people are working extremely hard. They are conscientious, law abiding and the backbone of the economy.

We talk about...

Willie Rennie: ...starkly with the rhetoric that has been used about aggressive tax avoidance in the UK, as if somehow HMRC is stuck in the past, unable to tackle aggressive tax avoidance by the likes of Amazon and Starbucks and many other companies that we have heard of.

Shabana Mahmood: ...for tax avoidance purposes has always been very real and stark and potentially very large in terms of revenue. It is interesting that the scheme was launched at a time of concern about tax avoidance and that still remains the case. Last summer, we had the whole raft of stories about Google, Starbucks and others. Concern about tax avoidance is extremely high. Ministers are continually...

John Cryer: ...;s Revenue and Customs, which has a reputation for doing deals with large companies and letting them off large amounts of tax. But suppose it grew a backbone—I know that is difficult to imagine—and decided to take on Vodafone or Starbucks. In the past, HMRC has done extremely controversial deals with those companies and let them off billions of pounds in tax. Will Vodafone,...

I met some amazing young people. I have also met apprentices at...

Petitions: Farmers Markets (5 March 2014)

Richard Burden: ...receive all the benefits of operating in the UK, but do not necessarily pay back their fair share.

Business of the House: Parliamentary Representation (27 February 2014)

Andrew Percy: ...operate. It sometimes feels very much like a private members club. I remember going into the Tea Room for the first time and being told, “You can’t sit on this side, because that’s where Labour Members sit.” When I go to Starbucks or Mae’s Tearoom in Goole, I sit wherever there is a spare table, so that seemed like a strange thing. With the wooden panels, the...

National Insurance (Renaming): Backbench Business — Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (25 February 2014)

Jim Sheridan: ...live in a world where certain global corporations seem to get away with breaking the rules and going over the heads of national Governments. The tax avoidance of global companies such as Amazon, Starbucks and Google, to name just a few, is unacceptable, but a stronger UK Government could hold them to account. The ISDS sets up a system where multinational corporations can challenge and sue...

Bangladesh: Nuisance Calls (16 January 2014)

Pat Glass: ... the Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman). However, I do not think that the problem will stop, so if it does not, we simply have to hit the companies hard in the pocket.
