Chris Bryant: ...the European referendum, into the autumn and into next year? If so, will he give us some more dates for private Members’ Bills as we have no more Fridays allocated? We have been saying for a while that the Trade Union Bill is partisan, petty-minded and vindictive, but now we know that the Government think so, too. After all, the Minister for Skills, who is the Minister in charge, has...

Short Money and Policy Development Grant (11 Feb 2016)

Liz McInnes: These proposals come on the back of the Government’s attack on Labour’s funding via the Trade Union Bill. It is clearly part of a partisan move to hit the Opposition and give the Government an unfair advantage, while leaving their own funding base of big donors untouched. Can the Minister confirm that the Government are now in favour of rigging the rules to suit themselves?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Innovation and Skills: Lasers: Imports (11 Feb 2016)

Anna Soubry: ...Safety Regulations, a business importing into the EU/EEA must have a representative within the EU/EEA who is responsible and liable for the safety of imported goods. This enables Customs and Trading Standards to check that imported laser products comply with safety standards. It is harder for them to carry out these checks where customers order goods from a company outside the EU and...

Justin Tomlinson: ...the charges levied on members and, as far as they are able, transaction costs, via an annual Chair’s Statement.

Anna Soubry: ...Competitiveness Council on Steel, I wanted to update Parliament on the UK’s contribution to EU level action on steel. The main area in which the EU can make meaningful change is with regard to unfair trade practices. Given the global scale of the challenge facing the steel industry, the Government, working with UK Steel and other stakeholders, has made every effort to ensure a speedy...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Rate of Income Tax: Resolution (11 Feb 2016)

John Mason: ...payments themselves be taxable? There might be answers to those questions, but neither the Finance Committee nor, I suspect, anyone else has looked thoroughly at them because they were not raised before. The Scottish Trades Union Congress and other witnesses at the committee supported keeping the Scottish rate at 10p. I think that one of the reasons for that is that we should be getting...

Trade Union Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 Feb 2016)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: I suspect that one reason the noble Lord, Lord King, did the deal with the TUC was that he knew that every 10 years there was going to be a ballot on the political funds in the unions, of which there have been three or four. So every 10 years all trade union members are reminded that they contribute to the political fund, and they have the option of voting it down if they wish to do so....

Trade Union Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (10 Feb 2016)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...that time, never once did we think of changing the current arrangements by statute. Opting in and opting out of a political fund is not simply a matter about party funding, and of course not all unions are affiliated to or give money to the Labour Party—they use their political funds for a range of purposes. My concern about these proposals does not relate simply to Labour Party or...

Migration into the EU — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Feb 2016)

Adam Holloway: ...the EU has highlighted that the whole European project is destined to fail. With each of the 28 member states having its own economic limitations, historical memory and political culture, it is impossible to reach an agreement on almost anything bar trade and logistics. The varying attitudes and experiences that each country brings have shown that they cannot be homogenised because there...

Fiona Bruce: Research by the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers shows that Scottish shop workers could lose up to 1,300 annually as stores increasingly abandon their additional Sunday pay rates in the light of the proposed Sunday trading regulations.
