Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I cannot believe that the Minister is not receiving representations that list the problems with this policy. Let me give him an example that I could not fit into my speech in the time available: my children’s school is ending free provision for under-fours, because the funding simply does not work as it has worked in the past. There is actually a net reduction in provision. Is he...

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I thank my parliamentary neighbour, my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Ruth George), for securing this debate, because investing in quality, sustainable and affordable childcare is, quite simply, the best investment a country can make. It enables children to excel and fulfil their potential, and parents to get out to work and fulfil theirs. It enables communities to become more...

Finance Bill: Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (11 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I thank the Financial Secretary for introducing this group. This is an important debate, not only for the future of Northern Ireland, but for this country’s overall approach to taxation and devolution. We know—we have discussed it frequently throughout this process—that our country faces a substantial tax gap. The official estimate of the UK’s tax gap is at least...

Finance Bill: Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (11 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I take the hon. Gentleman’s point, but I would not agree with his characterisation of the situation. We are making the case that our amendment will really benefit Northern Ireland, because if the relationship was abused and firms sought to benefit from the lower rate without investing in Northern Irish jobs or business production, that would surely defeat the purpose of having a lower...

Finance Bill: Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (11 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I do not agree with the hon. Gentleman’s assertion that only the financial services sector will seek to do that. We are proposing a very reasonable review of the measure after one year, and he has nothing to fear from such an amendment. Labour, more than any other party in this House, has consistently made the case for a level playing field between larger and smaller businesses, but a...

Finance Bill: Trading profits taxable at the Northern Ireland rate (11 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: The hon. Gentleman is not correct in that assessment. I certainly agree with him that regional disparity in the UK is one of the principal economic challenges that we face, but I do not agree that the solution is a race to the bottom in corporation tax rates between different parts of the UK. That would be neither effective nor the right way forward, and it would almost certainly fail to...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Non-domestic Rates (9 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what assessment he has made of the effect of charging full rates on vacant business premises in economically deprived areas.

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Many of us are flexible about how we will get to the system we want to see, and capacity is definitely an issue when it comes to specialists. On the point just made by the former Minister, the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb), the problem is that at an initial assessment people are told, “You don’t need to go and have the official diagnosis yet. Try to persevere...

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Thank you, Mr Howarth, for giving me the chance to say a few words about this important matter. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Bambos Charalambous) for calling this debate. I have a personal interest in this issue: my eldest son has autism, which I have had to learn about, live with and adapt to throughout my life as a parent. My first ever Westminster Hall debate,...

Written Answers — Home Office: Drugs: Misuse (13 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what plans the Government has to tackle trends in the incidence of the drug known as Spice.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Diamorphine: Prescriptions (13 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether there are GPs in the Greater Manchester area who are licensed to dispense diamorphine on prescription.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Heroin: Greater Manchester (13 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what estimate his Department has made of the number of heroin addicts in the Greater Manchester area.

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: The British economic model is “broken” and in need of “fundamental reform”. Those are not my words, but the findings of the interim report of the Institute for Public Policy Research’s economic justice commission, which comprises, among others, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the global managing partner of McKinsey and the policy chairman of the City of London...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I feel I have heard quite a lot from the Conservative party, so if the hon. Gentleman will forgive me, I shall proceed. Today’s proceedings, along with the ways and means discussion last week, have been characterised by deeply held concerns about the state of our economy. There have been many fine and noteworthy contributions in what has been a wide-ranging debate, taking us from...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I will not give way; I have listened to the Conservative party for more than eight hours. The first contribution to which I pay tribute is the maiden speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden). It was at times funny and moving, and it captured the character of his constituency extremely well, but it also had a serious and thoughtful message about the changing...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: We say that all the time. We always welcome it, but we just wish it was possible for the debate to include a consideration of the situation in a huge number of households where people are in work, as child poverty rates are rising and households are in poverty. Why does the Conservative party say nothing about that phenomenon, which is a huge part of life in Britain today?

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Given that Conservative MPs want to spend a considerable amount of time on this matter—indeed, they appear to have decided to filibuster their own Finance Bill—and given that the quote from the Leader of the Opposition has been used, let me finish that quote, word for word. He said: “I don’t have the simple answer for it at this stage—I don’t think anybody...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Roads: North of England (12 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what progress has been made on the trans-Pennine upgrade programme; and what the timetable is for completion.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Manchester.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Heart Diseases: Hospitals (20 Jul 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether he has received representations on the proposal to end surgical provision for congenital heart conditions in Greater Manchester and to refer patients to Liverpool or Leeds.
