European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Rachel Reeves: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for tabling this amendment. As he knows, the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee published a report today on our future relationship with Euratom. The cross-party Committee agreed that we needed as close a relationship as possible with Euratom, in part because of the safeguarding issue. Dr Golshan of the Office for Nuclear Regulation said in...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Industrial Strategy (12 Dec 2017)

Rachel Reeves: The Secretary of State has just touched on the sector deals the Government are agreeing with different sectors of the economy. Some of the sectors with the lowest productivity, such as retail, hospitality and social care, do not have a sector deal, yet if we close the productivity gap in those sectors, we will help boost productivity overall compared with our main competitors. What are the...

Rail Update (29 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: I have written to the Secretary of State about Kirkstall Forge railway station in my constituency. It opened just over a year ago, but only one train stops there an hour. If we are going to open new railway stations, we must have trains stopping at them. Will he agree to meet Arriva Rail North to talk about the frequency of services at Kirkstall Forge, so that we can get maximum benefit out...

Industrial Strategy (27 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Industrial strategy, particularly in sectors such as the automotive sector, depends on a model of just-in-time delivery. One concern of that sector, in particular, is that things will be held up at ports if we leave the European Union and the customs union. What assurances can the Secretary of State give businesses that we will have frictionless as well as tariff-free trade after we leave the...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: It is a privilege to follow the hon. Member for Mid Bedfordshire (Ms Dorries). I fear that today’s Budget delivers more of the same. It does very little to help people in the everyday economy who are struggling to get by—struggling to get a foot on the housing ladder, to grow their business, or to gain security in work. I shall focus on two aspects of the Budget. I shall deal...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: That is a very good point. If we are to ensure that everyone benefits from a growing economy—we just about have growth, but not very much of it—we must have an inclusive economy and an inclusive economic strategy that works for every member of all our communities. The Government might respond by saying, “It’s okay Labour Members. There is a productivity investment fund...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: I am not making my own forecasts; I am taking those of the Office for Budget Responsibility. What people in St Albans, Mid Bedfordshire and Leeds West want is affordable housing and the ability to get on to the housing ladder, and that requires stable house prices and an increase in housing supply. According to the OBR, however, there will be no improvement in supply on the basis of the...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: I will make a little more progress, if that is okay. On page 128 of its document, the OBR says that after the stamp duty changes, on the basis of its analysis, prices paid by first-time buyers will be higher with the relief than without it. Thus, it argues, the main gainers from the policy will be people who already own their properties, not first-time buyers. That is a terrible indictment of...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: Yes. The OBR’s earnings forecast shows that that is another impediment to many people getting on the housing ladder. Incomes need to keep pace with the rising cost of living, especially house prices, but the average earnings forecast suggests that it will be harder still for many people to get on the housing ladder.

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: The hon. Lady’s argument is not with me, but with the OBR. It forecasts no increase in housing supply and says that these measures will benefit existing house owners, rather than those trying to get on the housing ladder. That is disappointing. The plan for an additional 300,000 homes a year is a bit like the national productivity investment fund because the homes are not set to be...

Written Answers — Home Office: Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (16 Nov 2017)

Rachel Reeves: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what plans she has to ensure that the recruitment policies of the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority board will include trade union experience as a desirable competence for future board members; and if she will make a statement.
