Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

John Glen: I am, as ever, grateful to my right hon. Friend, and he made the same point when I was previously at the Dispatch Box. As he knows, the Bank of England is independent.

The new taxes will help to pay for the £55 billion of help for households and businesses...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

John Glen: I cannot account for what is happening in Scotland, but there are £1.5 billion of Barnett consequentials from the autumn statement.

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Energy (Oil and Gas) Profits Levy (21 Nov 2022)

John Glen: My hon. Friend makes a very wise point about the interaction between effective care and a vibrant NHS workforce.

That is exactly what this work will do: we will look at the gaps and respond to the pay demands in due course. The hon. Member for Bristol South asked what the Treasury has done in terms of the money that has already been...
