Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (24 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I am grateful for the opportunity to respond to the motion on behalf of the Opposition. Looking back over the corresponding debate last year, I was interested to see that the Minister’s predecessor, the right hon. Member for Loughborough (Nicky Morgan), told the House that, due to the tight timetable, “the Treasury has made every effort to provide early copies of the convergence...

Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (24 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I was just about to say that I know the Minister is courteous and accommodating, so I understand that the delay might have been unavoidable. As he quite often does, he has anticipated a number of the questions and points I intended to raise—indeed, the whole thrust of my remarks is just how familiar some of the documents and the issues they cover are, given that they have been discussed...

Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (24 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I will give way in a moment. Labour has announced today that under no circumstances will we increase VAT in the next Parliament. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman is about to say something from his Government’s point of view. Perhaps he will give the same assurance.

Business of the House (24, 25 and 26 March): Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (24 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: Under a Labour Government, there would be a new 10p starting rate for tax, and we would also reverse the tax cut for millionaires, which this Government gave and which by no stretch of the imagination can be seen to be fair. It is interesting that the hon. Gentleman did not mention VAT. I assume the Minister does not want to intervene at this point to give me an assurance that his Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Tax Devolution (10 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: Under the Scotland Act 2012, from April 2016 Scotland will indeed have significant new tax-raising powers. HMRC’s own risk register shows that the risk that Scottish taxpayers will not be identified by April 2016 has risen from amber to red, so can the Chief Secretary tell the House why, despite these being the biggest changes to Scottish tax ever, only 11 full-time equivalent HMRC staff...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Tax Devolution (10 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I thank the Chief Secretary for that response, although it does not entirely fill me with reassurance. Is it not the case that this whole process risks descending into absolute chaos, and is it not time that both the UK and the Scottish Governments got a grip? How many HMRC and Treasury officials have been seconded to the Scottish Government to help clear up the mess? If people have not been...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Future Government Spending ( 4 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I thank the Minister for eventually giving way. Although I celebrate young people and the long-term unemployed finding work in my constituency, I hope that she will recognise that for many of them, it is zero-hours contracts, low-paid work, and jobs that are not in their chosen careers. They want more from a future Labour Government and they will get it.

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Future Government Spending ( 4 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: It is a pleasure to wind up the debate today and to speak in favour of our Opposition motion. This gives me a chance to describe in plain terms the gulf between this Government’s spending plans and the approach that will be taken by a future Labour Government. It also gives me the opportunity to make it crystal clear that we reject the failed austerity plans that were set out in the...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Future Government Spending ( 4 Mar 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I am not going to give way because the hon. Gentleman had his opportunity earlier, and I wish to make a few more points about what has been said this afternoon. The true scale and nature of that impact cannot be quantified, because the Government will not set out where their billions of social security cuts will fall, so we have to look at past performance as our guide. Those reliant on tax...
