Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Jo Swinson: I am very glad that I can contribute to this debate, as it falls in the period when I am briefly back in the saddle before going off on a further period of leave in October. Colleagues will not be surprised that I, having introduced shared parental leave as a Minister, and Duncan have chosen to share caring for our new baby. I want to put on the record my sincere thanks to you, Mr Speaker,...

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Jo Swinson: That really gave the lie to the line that this was some kind of honest mistake. It was, quite simply, a shameful act for the Government Chief Whip to ask a Member to break a pairing arrangement and for him to agree. It clearly was not an honest mistake, especially when it emerged that other MPs had also been asked to break their pair in those Divisions. I would say that, whether for reasons...

Scallop Fishing: Bay of Seine: Proxy Voting (13 Sep 2018)

Jo Swinson: Absolutely, and that is part of the challenge. What should someone do if they are in the middle of a feed and the Division bell rings? Do they stand up and try not to disrupt their baby, or do they feed in the Lobby, as the hon. Lady did? When babies are a lot older it is easier to manage those things, but there is a reason why proxy voting would be so helpful for parents of very young...

Jo Swinson: What assessment she has made of the effectiveness of the reporting process on the gender pay gap.

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap: Reporting Process (13 Sep 2018)

Jo Swinson: I thank the Minister for that response. I congratulate her on the—almost suspicious—100% compliance, but I am sure the House will agree that that is good news. It is simply unfair that people earn less because they happen to be women, have brown skin, have a disability or come from a working-class background, yet there is clear evidence of pay gaps for all those characteristics....

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Technology Companies: Tax (11 Sep 2018)

Jo Swinson: I thank the Minister for that answer. The fact that Amazon’s UK profits trebled, yet it ended up paying less tax, shows how the tax model is broken for large international tech companies. He said that the UK may act unilaterally if international progress is not made at sufficient pace. With the OECD report not expected until 2020, is he prepared to wait that long before starting to act?...

Yemen: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement (10 Sep 2018)

Jo Swinson: The Minister is talking about an implementation period, but is that not a misnomer? It is far from clear what we will actually be implementing. She is going to ask Parliament to sign off on a process when there is no detail of what our future trading relationship with the EU or anyone else is going to look like and when we will be giving up our negotiating power within the EU. Is it not just...
