West Lothian Question — Question (4 Feb 2014)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the Minister for his reply, but surely the SNP cannot be allowed to make a bet that it cannot lose if it fails to win the referendum. Why should Scottish MPs continue to have the right to vote on exclusively English affairs?

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what sentencing guidelines are issued by the Sentencing Council to advise judges on the choice of the imposition of either consecutive or concurrent sentences on persons guilty of multiple offences.

Sentencing Council: Guidelines — Question (20 Nov 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the Minister for his reply, but does he not agree that perception is everything? The Sentencing Council admits that: “Concurrent sentences are sometimes thought to mean that an offender is getting away with some offences”. Why, indeed, should an offender convicted of, say, causing death by dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and driving while uninsured not serve separate...

Identity Cards — Question (16 Oct 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to introduce self-financing photo identity card cards on a purely voluntary basis to establish citizenship status.

Identity Cards — Question (16 Oct 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the Minister for his reply. I declare an interest in family investment companies which own a few residential properties. Bearing in mind that the forthcoming Immigration Bill will impose major responsibilities on private landlords, the NHS, GPs, banks and even the DVLA to undertake the virtually impossible task of verifying the immigration status of individuals, is it not clear that...

Ministerial CodeQuestion (13 Feb 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the noble Lord for his very helpful and complete reply. However, as noble Lords are doubtless aware, in the votes that took place last month in both Houses, none of the Liberal Democrats who are members of the Government supported the proposals of the independent Electoral Commission to ensure fair voting by making equal, even-sized constituencies. What are the current sanctions...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Taxation: Corporation Tax (9 Jan 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether compensation paid out for gross fiscal misconduct is a legitimate deduction from profits for the purpose of calculating corporation tax; and, if so, whether they have any plans to review the appropriateness of that tax provision.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Taxation: Corporation Tax (12 Dec 2012)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their estimate of the reduction in corporation tax received for the fiscal year which ended on 5 April 2012 due to deductions from profits for refunds made during that period by banks, building societies, insurance companies, retailers and financial institutions in respect of historically mis-sold personal protection insurance policies.

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Sassoon on 12 November (WA 260), whether transfer pricing, base erosion and profit-shifting are scrutinised by HM Revenue and Customs against the criteria of being "wholly, exclusively, and necessarily" incurred before allowing them for tax relief.

EU Report: Women on Boards — Question for Short Debate (13 Nov 2012)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, I, too, would like to congratulate my noble friend Lady O'Cathain on having secured this short and most important debate. I have only served on the board of one commercial public organisation, the Crown Agents, and I therefore do not have the same experience as does my noble friend following her very distinguished career in the world of high-powered finance. However, I do have the...

Queen's Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 May 2012)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, before I begin, it is my duty to apologise for the fact that I was not here when my noble friend Lord Strathclyde, the Leader of the House, opened the debate this morning. Indeed, I missed a tiny bit of the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, who is sitting in his place, but I shall read Hansard. I am afraid that my absence was absolutely beyond my control. I was stuck not in...

Draft House of Lords Reform Bill: Motion to Take Note (30 Apr 2012)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, Lloyd George came here. Perhaps the noble Lord does not know that. Anyway, that is by the by. The so-called reform of the House of Lords-I use "reform" with a degree of irony-has been an intractable question bedevilling those interested in the constitution for more than 100 years. Despite the distinguished membership of the Joint Committee, I have to say with the greatest of respect...
