Public Bill Committee: Deregulation Bill: Clause 61 - Exercise of regulatory functions: economic growth (20 March 2014)

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,...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (19 March 2014)

Gordon Birtwistle: ...fighter jets at BAE Systems in Preston, missile systems in Bolton and Airbus aircraft wings in Chester. I have also seen the other side of manufacturing. Only yesterday, I went to see apprentices at Starbucks in the Westfield shopping centre in White City and they showed me how to make a proper latte with a fancy topping. 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. We all know that multinational companies such as Google and Amazon are paying little or no corporation tax in our country, despite running very expensive and extensive operations here. Starbucks has reported taxable profit in the UK just once in 15 years, and Vodafone has recently revealed...

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...

Shrewsbury 24 (Release of Papers) (23 January 2014)

Gerald Howarth: ...more recently about the issue. An article from Wales on Sunday of 27 January 2013 in the debate pack provided to Members—so it must be relevant, Madam Deputy Speaker—states that “Peter Starbuck, who says he was Oswestry’s largest contractor at the time, claims violence and intimidation were a routine part of the strikers’ tactics and the convictions are...

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. We could name and shame companies. We saw what happened to companies such as Starbucks when the public heard about their attitude to paying tax in this country: people simply walked past and bought their coffee...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Accident and Emergency: Food Banks (18 December 2013)

Steven Baker: ...and usually delivers within 24 hours. The trust enjoys support from the Big Yellow Self Storage Company, and has matched funding from Barclays and Santander. Warm drinks are provided to volunteers by Starbucks, and the Eden shopping centre provides parking for volunteers. This is an astonishing exercise of social power, and I am very proud of what the trust is doing, particularly because...

David Davies: ...to find a better way of life: Abraham going off to the promised land, or Moses, or the disciples, who toured all over Europe. They all moved.” Victoria station is a prime bit of expensive real estate. There is Boots, Costa Coffee and Starbucks, and there is an office which is recruiting people to work for Pret A Manger. I went there one day last week, and saw that there were 100...

Offender Rehabilitation Bill [Lords] (Money): Psychoactive Substances (11 November 2013)

Julian Huppert: ...possible to be intoxicated by caffeine, which is an addictive substance. The hon. Lady is right to say that the new clause deals only with the supply of substances, but, although some of us may have concerns about Starbucks paying taxes or otherwise, I think that making the company illegal would be going too far. Roughly one in five of the notified new psychoactive substances are used for...

Taxation: Tax Law Enforcement — Question (30 October 2013)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...is disgraceful. With respect, the Minister has been giving us the same answer about extra staff for almost the past three years, yet we have illustration after illustration of evasion. First it was Starbucks, then it was Amazon, then it was Philip Green and Irvine Laidlaw; one after the other has been avoiding tax. Has the Minister not yet come to the conclusion that what is needed is...

Child Protection: Employment Rights (12 September 2013)

Andy Sawford: ...Friend the Leader of the Opposition has promised to take clear action on this. That is why I met McDonald’s and talked about employment in its business. This week I also met the managing director of Starbucks, and I have talked to employers across my constituency and to councils about care workers. I want them to take action now, because that would be good for their reputation and...

Such contacts should be logged.

United Kingdom Corporate and Individual Tax and Financial Transparency Bill (6 September 2013)

Michael Meacher: ...in promoting growth, I submit that my Bill is the next best option. First, following the revelations of which we have heard repeatedly in the past few months of colossal tax scams perpetrated by US multinationals Starbucks, Apple, Facebook and Amazon—I recognise that those scams are more or less exactly the same as those perpetrated by a great many UK multinationals—the Bill...

Backbench Business — Private Members’ Bills: Postal Services (Rural Areas) (2 September 2013)

Michael McCann: ...enjoy a regular income from post office services throughout the country. If privatisation is the trend, will there be other royal privatisations? Can we look forward to the McDonald’s civil list, the Starbucks Duchess of Cambridge, or the Mitchells and Butlers Windsor castle? After all, the latter company already has hundreds of Windsor Castles, so it would only be a consolidation of...

Finance Bill (Ways and Means): New Clause 4 — Transfer of deductions (1 July 2013) See 2 other results from this debate

Alison Seabeck: ...offshore companies. If the UK is losing out, so too are many other countries; gambling is an international pastime, whether we like it or not. Customers made clear their anger at corporation tax avoidance by Starbucks; I hope that they will continue to be discerning in a range of other fields, including gambling. To do that, they need a little more information about exactly who is doing...
