John Glen: I thank my right hon. Friend for her observations; she is one of the most respected voices in the House on this subject, and I am happy to meet her to go into some detail on where we are and what she thinks can be done. I will now turn to infrastructure, innovation and growth.

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

John Glen: I shall give way one more time, and then I shall make some progress.

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

John Glen: I try to resist this sort of knockabout politics. The bottom line is that I have been very plain and clear with the House where the financial settlement takes us. I know we have increased the skills budget by 42% in cash terms. By any observation, there has been a significant investment. We can dispute how far it would have been possible to go, but I know that when we came into office in 2010...

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

John Glen: I very much recognise that this country faces very difficult headwinds, as I said in the opening of my speech. Obviously the extensive support package that we have put out there for consumers and businesses will offer some relief from some of those pressures, but the major challenge we face as a country and an economy is a level of inflation that we have not seen for 41 years. The measures in...

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

John Glen: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. The integrated review is under review at this time. That needs to be done urgently—I think in the next three or four months—to enable us to come to an assessment of what that means for our defence spending. But I will say that, as I know he will know, we did front-load a significant increase in the defence budget, of £24 billion, over this spending...

Written Answers — Treasury: Treasury: EU Law (21 Nov 2022)

John Glen: We can confirm that HM Treasury and HMRC do not hold this information. HMT and HMRC hold a large body of Retained EU Law (REUL), primarily in relation to Financial Services and tax (including excise, customs and VAT). A number of officials from both HMT and HMRC work on REUL legislation. This work is carried out as part of officials’ normal business activities, and we do not record the...

Written Answers — Treasury: Horizon Europe (17 Nov 2022)

John Glen: Consistent with the sector’s preference to associate to EU R&D programmes, the Government and set aside funding for association at Spending Review 2021 and has continued negotiations with the EU, while ensuring the sector is supported by funding the Horizon Guarantee.

Written Answers — Treasury: Food Poverty (17 Nov 2022)

John Glen: The government understands that people across the UK are worried about the cost of living, and are seeing their disposable incomes decrease as they spend more on the essentials.

We have taken decisive action to support millions of households and business with rising energy costs this...

Written Answers — Treasury: Poverty: Children (17 Nov 2022)

John Glen: The Government has consistently said that the best way to support families’ living standards is through good work, better skills, and higher wages. This is why, at Autumn Statement 2022, the Government announced it will bring forward the nationwide rollout of the In-Work Progression offer, from September 2023. This will mean that over 600,000 Universal Credit (UC) claimants in-work will...

Written Ministerial Statements — Treasury: Social Security Update (17 Nov 2022)

John Glen: The Tax Credits Act 2002 and the Social Security Administration Act 1992 place a statutory duty on His Majesty’s Treasury to review the rates of tax credits and Child Benefit each year in line with the general level of prices. There is a further statutory duty on the Treasury to increase Guardian’s Allowance in line with price growth. I have now concluded the review for the tax year...

We recognise this study raises a...

Written Answers — Treasury: Regional Planning and Development (15 Nov 2022)

John Glen: The Levelling Up White Paper set out a clear plan to level up every corner of the UK by 2030. The £150m Community Ownership Fund is helping communities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to take ownership of assets at risk of closure. And we’re continuing to invest billions in regional infrastructure, including £1.7 billion already awarded through the Levelling Up Fund.

Written Answers — Treasury: Public Expenditure: Inflation (15 Nov 2022)

John Glen: Spending Review 2021 provided the devolved administrations with their largest annual block grants, in real terms, of any spending review settlement since 1998. As a result, the devolved administrations’ funding is still growing in real terms over the Spending Review period despite higher inflation, which means they remain well-funded to deliver their devolved responsibilities. I continue to...

Treasury: Bolton: Public and Private Investment (15 Nov 2022)

For example, the first round of the levelling-up fund invested £20 million to create the Bolton College of Medical Sciences, and Bolton received £22.9 million from the towns fund to support its long-term economic and social regeneration. On the second part of the hon. Lady’s question, the Government do not routinely...

Treasury: Bolton: Public and Private Investment (15 Nov 2022)

John Glen: The hon. Lady refers to the Money and Pensions Service. During the pandemic, additional Government grants were made available to support debt advisers. Some of that money was not used. There has been an attempt to look at how that money is distributed, but I would be happy to take this matter back and refer it to the Economic Secretary to see what can be done to give clarification.
