Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: It is an obvious point that we have made time and time again in the House. We have been pressing for investment in infrastructure for the existing airport, but it has not been forthcoming. We do not even know what the infrastructure plan is for the area. Last time, the infrastructure plan included a road through my local cemetery. We were meant to disinter the dead to enable access to...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: I would respect the hon. Gentleman, my constituency neighbour, if he accepted a runway in his constituency south of Heathrow, but he refused. Look at how much corporation tax has been paid by this company over the past 10 years: £24 million. It has been borrowing to pay dividends more than its profit ratios. That is the nature of the company we are dealing with. It is a company and an...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: We have 9,000 people a year in London dying from air pollution, yet there is nothing in the Government proposals that goes anywhere near even thinking about tackling these issues. Those are the consequences for my community, despite all the promises they have been given that their homes would be secure. These are villages that have been there for 1,000 years, to be wiped off the face of the...

Business of the House: National Policy Statement: Airports (25 Jun 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: I will finish on this point, because other Members want to speak. This decision tonight will likely go through, but there will inevitably be legal challenges from a cross-party group and the London boroughs, as well as the Mayor of London. I believe, like last time, that those legal challenges will win. We will be left, yet again, with not tackling the real problem of developing a real...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Money Laundering and Criminal Finance (22 May 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: I associate myself with the Chancellor’s eloquent words on the Manchester tragedy. I also commend the emergency services that operated on that day. “The Government cannot afford to turn a blind eye as kleptocrats and human rights abusers use the City of London to launder their ill-gotten funds”. Not my words but the words of yesterday’s Foreign Affairs Committee...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Money Laundering and Criminal Finance (22 May 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: That is just not good enough. We were promised a register in 2015, and we are still having to wait another three years. The Government are letting the crooks, the tax avoiders and the money launderers off the hook again. They have failed to introduce and enforce stricter due diligence for companies as registered companies, they have failed to take on the service providers that set up these...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Apr 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: In advance of today’s debate on Syria, I welcome financial measures to sanction the Syrian regime. According to past Government figures, £151 million of assets belonging to leading figures in the Assad regime in Syria have been frozen by authorities here. Since then, 261 Syrian individuals have been listed as financial sanctions targets in the UK. Can the Chancellor tell the House...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Apr 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: I welcome the Chancellor’s response, but the problem is that the lack of transparency in our financial system makes it virtually impossible for him to know exactly how many assets linked to such regimes are owned in the UK. It is estimated that more than £5 billion of assets owned by Assad and his associates are being held overseas and, according to international reports, the UK is...

Money Laundering (19 Mar 2018)

John Martin McDonnell: I thank the Minister for his response. Twelve months ago, I raised in an urgent question the issue of the Russian laundromat, as it was called, laundering £20 billion of criminal funds through the City of London.
