Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: The right hon. Lady is right about that, and I join her in congratulating all 1,000 of those businesses in her constituency and millions more nationwide. We are talking about people who have set up their own businesses and are working hard to create wealth, jobs and growth for this country. That is why a range of the tax and regulatory changes we have put in place have been designed precisely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: I am not sure that that is a matter for discussion at a European Union level.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: I wholeheartedly agree with my hon. Friend on that. He has done more than most Members of this House to promote apprenticeships, the creation of skills and the manufacturing industry, and I pay tribute to him for his work. I ask him to look at what we have said about this in the autumn statement, which contains particular measures to promote the provision of better careers advice in schools.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: The best protection for the UK is to stick to the economic plan that is creating jobs and growth up and down this country. That is what the coalition has done and will continue to do. The OBR’s forecast, published last week, showed that it expects the UK, despite the difficulties to which the hon. Gentleman refers, to continue to have economic momentum over the next few years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: My hon. Friend makes an important point, although I would say to her that rural communities are part of local enterprise partnership areas that benefit from the growth deals announced last year. The city deals and the devolution process we are engaged in benefit all parts of the UK. I highlight to her the investment this Government are making in transport and in broadband as particularly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: That same economic forecast suggests that an extra 1 million people will be in work from the record levels that we have at the moment; that there will be a consistent rise in real incomes over the next five years; and that the United Kingdom has the strongest economic growth of any developed country in the world and the strongest job creation. Those are the facts about the United Kingdom and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: I can honestly say to my hon. Friend that his constituency will benefit. It has already benefited from the growth deals, and it is benefiting from investment in energy infrastructure, which is a particular interest there. It is also benefiting from the transport investment, and as we take forward this agenda to improve the economy in the north of England, we will ensure that every part of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: I agree with my hon. Friend. This Government have taken consistent action to tackle tax avoidance and to reduce tax evasion, raising billions of pounds to help avoid some of the pressures to which she refers. Dodging taxes is as morally reprehensible as claiming the wrong benefits or doing what she described. Those are all things that we, as a society, want to see stopped, and the Government...

Danny Alexander: This Government’s investment in flood-risk management has increased in real terms by 5% compared with spending in the previous five years. We will be spending more than £5.2 billion over the course of this Parliament on flood and erosion risk management compared with £2.7 billion in the previous five years. That is a record of which I am proud.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: The hon. Gentleman is right to highlight the importance of the study. We noted it in the national infrastructure plan as something that has produced some new arguments about that link. Clearly, the case must be developed locally, given the more devolved framework in which we are now operating. If he wants to join my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds North West (Greg Mulholland) in the meeting...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Infrastructure (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: The government recently published the National Infrastructure Plan 2014, setting out the government’s record on delivery since 2010 and a clear plan for each of the economic infrastructure sectors. It is underpinned by a pipeline detailing £466 billion of planned public and private investment to 2020 and beyond. The government does not hold data on the exact number of jobs...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Broadband: Business (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: The total budget for the Super Connected Cities programme remains at £150m. The government has announced that it will make £40m of this budget available in 2015-16 to allow existing cities to run the voucher element of the scheme for longer, and new cities to participate. This prolongs the duration of the scheme, which was originally planned to run until 2014-15.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Public Expenditure (9 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: The funding announced in the Autumn Statement is a down-payment on the NHS's own long-term plan, fully delivering the investment required to make the Five Year Forward View a reality in 2015-16. It also provides funding to start delivering the changes necessary to ensure a sustainable NHS in future years. This has only been possible through good financial management of the...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Infrastructure (1 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: Institutional investors, including pension funds, are a promising source of investment in UK infrastructure. Institutional investors are particularly relevant for infrastructure as they are looking for longer term investments to match defined liabilities that are realised when claims are made for pension or insurance purposes. The government is encouraging greater involvement of...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Economic Growth: West Midlands (1 Dec 2014)

Danny Alexander: Maximising the economic potential of city regions is an important priority for this government, and we have a proud record of decentralisation. This year Birmingham and Solihull benefitted from a £357.4 million Growth Deal, alongside a £400 million investment in Birmingham New Street station and the exciting new HS2 project.
