Early Parliamentary General Election (19 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: It is a pleasure to close today’s debate on the Finance (No. 2) Bill, even if other events have possibly overshadowed today’s important parliamentary business. In fact, I understand that there are reports circulating this evening that the Crown Prosecution Service is about to charge 30 senior Conservatives with election expenses fraud, so I am afraid it is possible that we may be...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: There is no magic money tree.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: indicated assent.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am loth to give the hon. Gentleman further exposure, but if that strategy was as successful as he believes, why did it not meet its own objectives and we are still discussing the deficit and the very large amount of national debt today?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I may be falling into my own trap, but I remember listening to the hon. Gentleman’s speeches in the previous Parliament when he said that if the deficit was at this level, going on from 2010, that would be a disaster. Now he is saying it is a huge achievement. Can he not understand why the lack of humility makes one cynical about the content of his speeches?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: We are always here to help.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Exiting the EU: Public Finances (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I agree with the Chancellor that one of the biggest contributors to the UK’s public finances is the tax revenue that we receive from the financial services sector. Now that we have had the triggering of article 50 and the Government’s White Paper, will he tell us whether he is confident that that revenue will not be significantly reduced, either through the loss of jobs or the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Exiting the EU: Public Finances (18 Apr 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I share the Chancellor’s assessment that there is a mutually beneficial deal for us and the EU to agree on, if this Government have the ability to deliver it. Will he therefore state unequivocally that, as a result of the deal that the Government will seek to negotiate, there will be no significant loss of jobs in any major financial institutions, no removal of any major City-wide...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (30 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Anyone who has ever driven between the great cities of Sheffield and Manchester will have undoubtedly been caught in congestion in the Longdendale area of my constituency. The first public inquiry into a solution took place in 1967, and in the seven years I have been the MP for the area I have raised the matter repeatedly, so I am pleased that the consultation on a bypass route is now open as...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children: Day Care (30 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if she will make an assessment of the potential merits of extending the 30 hours a week free childcare entitlement for working parents to student midwives and nurses who work in the public sector as part of their courses.

Breathing Space Scheme (29 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Before the sitting was suspended, I had begun to reach my conclusion. The key priority now is to see progress and movement on this issue. The Government initially promised to have a review of the scheme by December 2015, as we have heard today, but we are still waiting for that. Since then, according to the debt charity, StepChange, 1.3 million people have sought debt advice from the major...

Breathing Space Scheme (29 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I congratulate the hon. Member for Rochester and Strood (Kelly Tolhurst) on securing this debate, which is critical to many individuals and families. I also recognise her commendable work in initiating and progressing the Families with Children and Young People in Debt (Respite) Bill, which has the potential to form part of a much needed solution to the escalating levels of personal debt. As...

Breathing Space Scheme (29 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I endorse those remarks in terms of what the objectives of such a scheme should be. We believe that, for it to be as effective as possible, the Government must undertake some further exploration of the technical details. In current versions of the scheme under way elsewhere, I understand that public sector debts such as council tax debt are excluded as well as self-assessment fines, benefit...

Breathing Space Scheme (29 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I am afraid that is my experience. I want to stress that that has been a serious problem for my constituents. In preparing for the debate I recalled that in recent months in my surgeries there have been three individuals who have all been pushed into dire financial situations specifically by the recovery of benefit overpayments, including one situation in which someone had to borrow money...

Breathing Space Scheme (29 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I agree entirely with my hon. Friend, and in my closing remarks I will ask for exactly that commitment. There needs to be clarity over how participation in a debt arrangement scheme will impact on an individual’s credit rating. The rationale behind avoiding bankruptcy is partly down to the future impact of that on an individual’s borrowing capacity and financial position,...

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: Will the Prime Minister confirm her understanding of what will need to happen on the European side to ratify the new deal with the UK, which we all want to see? Will this be a decision, as part of the exit negotiations, by the Council of Ministers and by the Commission, or will this require ratification by every remaining EU member state national Parliament and, in some cases, regional...

London Attacks (23 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: I think everyone who works on the parliamentary estate has at some point considered what they would do if a day like yesterday ever happened, but for those of us who work alongside our families on site it is of particular concern. Will the Prime Minister join me in saying a specific word of praise for the staff at the House of Commons nursery for their actions yesterday? Many of us can...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (13 Mar 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: It has been a privilege to listen to the Budget debate today and to be able to respond on behalf of the Opposition. We have heard 32 Back-Bench speeches, two thirds of which have come from the Labour Benches, but in many ways it is understandable that so few Conservative Members wished to speak today. It was surely quite an achievement that the Chancellor managed to deliver a Budget that was...
