Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU: No Deal (17 Apr 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: The UK’s economic growth in the final quarter of 2017 was the weakest of any economy in the G7, and the OBR is forecasting that the UK is on course for our worst period of economic growth since the end of the second world war. However, none of these already dire forecasts factors in a no-deal Brexit, which would have a severe impact on jobs, growth and tax revenues. We know the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Companies: Ownership (5 Apr 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what progress he has made on the introduction of a public register of beneficial owners of property in the UK.

Kerslake Arena Attack Review (28 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is difficult to read parts of the report, because it requires us to relive that evening and the days after it, but there is much to be proud of in terms of the response and the incredible sense of solidarity across Greater Manchester and throughout the whole country in the days afterwards. A report such as this should never be about scapegoating—it is about learning lessons—but...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I wish to ask a serious question. The right hon. Gentleman is very well remunerated for his views on finance and is very much sought after for advice in the City. He will know that, if we were to lose just 10% of, say, the financial services sector in the UK, as a result of market access ending through Brexit, that would constitute a loss of £8 billion to £9 billion in taxation to...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: The slogan of the leave campaign was “Take back control”. What does that mean if it does not mean taking back control of one’s borders? There are movements of people that need to be considered. There is still the common travel area between this country and the Republic of Ireland. One cannot simply introduce borders and then tell the British public that those borders will...

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: *No heading* (8 Mar 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the right hon. Member for Meriden, representing the Church Commissioners, what steps are being taken to roll out financial education in Church of England schools.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Leaving the EU (27 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: Many Cabinet members have made their views clear about the single market and customs union. The Chancellor has said that he would like to see no tariffs with Europe after we leave the EU and no hard border in Northern Ireland. His exact words, which were in a letter to the Treasury Committee, were that he wants a deal “that facilitates the freest and most frictionless trade possible in...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: There must be an objective assessment, given the strength of the economic risk that we face from Brexit. In terms of financial services, Brexit could diminish market access; it could take it away and make a situation where there is not a legal right to do the kind of business that currently takes place within the United Kingdom. There is no comparison between that and differences of political...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I feel that we have had this discussion in many of the debates on the many Finance Bills we have debated over the past 12 months. No one on the Opposition Benches denies the existence of the Laffer curve; we simply point out, as a point of fact, that the very large reductions in corporation tax that the Government have introduced have cost the country revenue. That is not in dispute. The...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: rose—

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am extremely grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. This argument is integral to the economic prosperity of the UK. On the point that he has just raised, I say clearly that we should wish to keep that substantial national asset, which is our financial services industry, in the UK, but it is Brexit that will drive it away. HSBC’s plans at the minute, in terms of relocating...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I must defend the Leader of the Opposition. The comments that he made to the EEF national manufacturing conference were simply that finance must serve industry and that this country has to find ways to increase lending to businesses, to have more productive outcomes for the economy and to lower regional inequality—all things that were previously said by the former Chancellor of the...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: The hon. Gentleman is, as he knows, unfairly paraphrasing my hon. Friend the shadow Chief Secretary. What my hon. Friend has pointed out is that politics is about choices and that this Government have decided, through this set of proposals, to reduce the amount of tax the banks will pay, in a situation where many core services in this country—public services that are supported by...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Higher Education: Strikes (14 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what consideration he has given to refund tuition fees to students whose lectures are cancelled as a result of strike action by lecturers.

Public Bill Committee: Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill: Power to make provision in relation to VAT or duties of customs or excise (1 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: I firmly agree. Members on both sides of the Committee have referred to the testimony the Hansard Society gave in the evidence sessions. It is not just the Opposition who have concerns. I would very much like to be a real, not shadow, Treasury Minister one day. Even then, we would require the proper checks and balances to be in place. It still seems counter-intuitive to include time limits in...

Public Bill Committee: Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill: Power to make provision in relation to VAT or duties of customs or excise (1 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Reynolds: My hon. Friend is making a fantastic speech about the applicability of sunset clauses around the world. Again, however, we have to get back to this point: if the Government still need these powers after the sunset clause is done and the powers no longer exist, they simply have to come back to Parliament. It is not the case that they do not have the power to deal with things; a strong, united...
