Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Caroline Flint: In her answers so far, the Prime Minister has shown that she has not got a clue about the concerns of small towns. Today and on 14 June, the Prime Minister said that no one and no community will be left behind, but the Doncaster market towns of Thorne and Bawtry have just been told that their NatWest branches are to close. That is two more bank branch closures on top of a record-breaking 700...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Officers: Safety (5 Dec 2017)

Caroline Flint: The hon. Member for Saffron Walden (Mrs Badenoch) makes an important point about how the perception of safety can affect recruitment and retention in the prison service. Will the Secretary of State give me an update on the Government’s workforce strategy for all justice sector staff—safety issues affect everyone in the sector—and commit today to involving all trade union...

Public Country-by-Country Reporting (22 Nov 2017)

Caroline Flint: I am delighted to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Main. I thank the hon. Member for Amber Valley (Nigel Mills), my colleague and friend, for securing and introducing this debate. I will focus on the case that investors are now making for public country-by-country reporting; an interesting development is that more and more investors are concerned about the behaviour of the companies they...

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Caroline Flint: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Amber Valley (Nigel Mills) and to congratulate him on securing a Westminster Hall debate next week on the subject of public country-by-country reporting. I hope that Members from all parts of the House will support that debate. It was just over a year ago, in September 2016, when a non-Government amendment to the Finance Bill, which had...

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Caroline Flint: The Minister is right to point out that HMRC does a very good job on the collection of tax in this country, but that does not mean it cannot do better. Does the Minister agree that the tax take is based on what we think should be paid in tax, and it does not deal with the Googles, Amazons, Starbucks and others who hide their tax away and are therefore not computed into the actual tax we...

Caroline Flint: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Smart Meters Bill (24 Oct 2017)

Caroline Flint: Don Valley.

Smart Meters Bill (24 Oct 2017)

Caroline Flint: On that last point about what happens when our constituents hit those sort of buffers—when they are faced with inaccurate information—they say to me that they just do not know who to approach to complain about it. That is a fundamental weakness in the system—where should people go?

Smart Meters Bill (24 Oct 2017)

Caroline Flint: It is quite clear from the speeches of the hon. Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach) and others who have spoken that we all agree that being able to end estimated bills is a good goal to achieve. In fact, an EU directive in 2006 stated that getting rid of estimated bills was the way to go. In 2009, European Union guidance indicated that it was looking to member states to roll out...

Smart Meters Bill (24 Oct 2017)

Caroline Flint: The hon. Lady makes a good point about the use of technology, but does she also accept that some of the poorest families in our communities cannot afford to buy the white goods that are at the cutting-edge of this technology, and we need to address that problem as well?

Retail Energy (12 Oct 2017)

Caroline Flint: Much of what I am hearing is music to my ears, and I welcome the fantastic cross-party support. The draft Bill, however, is a vindication of Labour’s warnings since the data became available in 2011 that customers were being ripped off by the big six energy companies. The Secretary of State has finally accepted that customers were overcharged by £1.4 billion between 2012 and 2015,...

Caroline Flint: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Sep 2017)

Caroline Flint: The Secretary of State knows that the concern for Ofgem, even though it has the power, is that energy companies would appeal to the CMA and frustrate the process. What he has not acknowledged today is that, under section 26 of the Energy Act 2010, he already has the power to introduce a price cap if one group of customers is treated less favourably than other customers by an energy supplier....

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

Caroline Flint: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh) and his constructive and positive contribution. There is no doubt that Brexit poses a great number of challenges to the Government and to MPs of all parties, not least the challenge of replacing European Union laws and jurisdiction with equivalent UK laws and regulations under UK jurisdiction. That is the purpose...
