Public Institutions - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2016)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: No, but he has good stories. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Fairfax, for at least the subject of this debate, although his contribution did not bring much credit to the House. I regret that he did not notify people who would be affected by it. Let us name one of them, because we know who we are talking about it: the idea that anyone does not know that my noble friend Lord Kinnock was a...

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: ...are the Swiss banks. Despite Switzerland’s being part of the European economic area, it cannot trade directly with the EU, so it has to base subsidiaries within the EU. Happily, firms such as Credit Suisse and UBS put them in London, as do US banks such as Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and the like. That is why the head of TheCityUK said that the move could cost up to 100,000 jobs in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (29 Jun 2016)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...that clearly is not delivering. There are now 13.5 million people living in poverty in Britain, which is up by 300,000 over the last year. Some 4.5 million people in England and Wales are in insecure work, and two thirds of children in poverty are living in households where at least one adult is in work. The Prime Minister has two months left. Will he leave a one-nation legacy that...

Scottish Parliament: Gender and the Workplace (29 Jun 2016)

Pauline McNeill: ...front-line victims of austerity. They have fewer assets and they are less likely to be part of an occupational pension scheme. Staggeringly, they make up 92 per cent of lone parents and 75 per cent of part-time workers. According to Oxfam, women form the majority of those in the world who are living in poverty. They are exposed to violence and forced marriage and, across the world,...

Finance Bill: Charge for financial year 2017 (28 Jun 2016)

David Gauke: The Bill introduces measures on small business investment that will simplify the tax system and ensure that allowances are fair and not open to abuse. Clause 41 charges corporation tax for the financial year beginning 1 April 2017. Corporation tax is an annual tax approved by Parliament each year. This is an essential provision that enables us to collect tax. The key reform announced in the...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (Implications for Scotland) (28 Jun 2016)

Willie Rennie: ...change? Gone. A single market? Gone. Improved social conditions? Gone. All those, and so many other things, are gone. We are already seeing the effect on the value of the pound, on company shares and on credit ratings. I am angry that we have been recklessly led down that path. I am angry that prices in shops will rise because of the higher cost of imports, that people’s savings are...

Finance Bill: Taxable benefits: application of Chapters 5 to 7 of Part 3 of ITEPA 2003 (27 Jun 2016)

Kelvin Hopkins: ...of nonsense has continued ever since—reducing the number of offices, making things more remote and so on. I was also not terribly impressed by the idea of having a benefits-distributing service—tax credits—going through HMRC rather than through the Department for Work and Pensions. I was not the only Opposition Member who was uneasy about that change. I want to discuss...

Peter Weir: .... The three draft statutory rules were approved by the Communities Committee on 16 June. This is the second tranche of regulations to be made following publication of the welfare reform mitigations working group proposals.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Final Stage (27 Jun 2016)

Philip Smith: ...is that: "the negative effect from lower economic growth will outweigh the fiscal savings from the UK no longer having to contribute to the EU budget." Of course, any EU contribution is still an unknown outworking of the negotiations yet to come. If the UK made the same deal as Norway, we would still contribute a net £3·5 billion to EU funds as the price for access to the single...

Scottish Parliament: Children (16 Jun 2016)

Daniel Johnson: ...to ensure that every child benefits from it. Labour has taken the early years seriously for some time. Expanded childcare, the introduction of paternity leave, increased maternity leave and pay, tax credits and the sure start programme are all achievements of recent Labour Governments. The Scottish Government will have our support when it builds on those foundations. Childcare also has...

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Matt Warman: ...is Europe, and specifically immigration. A generation of politicians failed Boston. First, it was Portugal and then Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and beyond that sent their most motivated people to do low-paid work, primarily in Britain’s fields. Two things happened as a result. First, agriculture thrived and population growth meant a raft of businesses sprang up aimed specifically at...

Scottish Parliament: Trade Union Membership (15 Jun 2016)

Patrick Harvie: ...must act together, overcoming the distrust that too often exists between political parties in Scotland. There are other actions that we can take in Scotland. SNP members know that I give credit where it is due for the fair work agenda and the business pledge, but both need to go further. In particular, there is a need for greater conditionality in the fair work agenda. We should say...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (14 Jun 2016)

Alex Attwood: I will conclude those remarks now, but corporation tax was weaved in and out by Mr Lunn most recently. The Minister is negotiating on something that London have said explicitly in Stormont House that they will not negotiate on, and the DUP and Sinn Féin have both said that they are loyal to Stormont House. Sinn Féin is not loyal to Stormont House when it comes to that issue....

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Economy: R&D Investment (14 Jun 2016)

Simon Hamilton: ...to help our indigenous firms to expand and realise the opportunities out there in the global marketplace. Developing our skills is a key component of our new draft Programme for Government framework. One of the indicators, as I am sure the Member will know, is to improve the skills profile of our population. A range of strategies is in place — I will not bore the Member or the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: June Monitoring (14 Jun 2016)

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir: ...the monitoring round without having to engage in a draconian cuts exercise, confounding, may I say, the predictions of the naysayers. Given the pressing need to bring clarity to Departments and Ministers on the 2016-17 in-year position so that they can get to work with the money I am allocating, and in the interests of efficient governance, the Executive have agreed to my request to...
