European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Stella Creasy: The Minister said that he thought that all the amendments muddied the water, but he has also said that it was right that Parliament should have a vote on the money—on the divorce bill—and that there should be parliamentary oversight of any additional controls. Why then is he not going to accept amendments that simply ensure that that is the case? Just what kind of control is he...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Stella Creasy: Whatever my hon. Friend’s feelings towards the European Union, he has just said that he fears that we may pay too much, whatever the number is. New clause 17 is about knowing what that number is. Surely he must support that principle. Then we can answer the question about whether it is too much, not enough or completely irrelevant.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Withdrawal Agreement Payment to the European Union (6 Dec 2017)

Stella Creasy: The right hon. Gentleman is making an incredibly powerful case about the importance of data. Just today, John Curtice has released information that proves that a majority of the British public now believe that Brexit will be bad for our economy, so even the British people have twigged that something is awry. Does the right hon. Gentleman think that the lack of impact assessments will compound...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: It is always interesting to follow the hon. Member for Hertsmere (Oliver Dowden), who makes a wonderful case for why this country needs not just an Opposition, but an alternative. Let us give him that alternative today. It was a privilege to attend this morning’s commendation service for my local police. I heard extraordinary stories of police constables and their bravery, but those...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Tax Avoidance: Luxembourg (27 Nov 2017)

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Tax Avoidance: Luxembourg (27 Nov 2017)

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Tax Avoidance: Luxembourg (27 Nov 2017)

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Glenrothes (Peter Grant), who made another powerful case for what is becoming incredibly evident in British society. Let me start by trying to find some common ground on something that has divided us for more than 18 months now. I do not think that anybody here tonight wants to re-run the referendum; we all recognise the referendum result. I do,...

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: I was struck by the discussion earlier about making decisions so quickly. I, too, did not vote for the article 50 legislation to be triggered, because I was concerned it was too soon in the process. However, some disasters are of our own making, and a snap general election in which the public thoroughly rejected her hard Brexit is certainly something the Prime Minister should learn from. In...

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: I absolutely agree. This is the challenge that we face. Eighteen months on, it is not unfair that businesses across the country are saying “What next?” and asking how they might adapt to whatever the final deal with Europe might be. Eighteen months on, none of us is any closer to being able to give them any answers. They do not need White Papers that talk about ambition and...

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case. Often it is said that sometimes we just need to simplify: if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it is a duck. If everything the Government are saying they want looks like and sounds like the customs union and single market, why are we wasting time debating other things?

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: I entirely agree with the hon. Gentleman’s comments. Does he share my concern that because the Government are not giving any clarity on this issue, it is very likely that British businesses will have to deal with all the vagaries of the 13th directive on VAT unless we look for some clarity on retaining our current systems for trading, whether through the customs union or the single market?

Duties of Customs (20 Nov 2017)

Stella Creasy: Following our time together in Committee considering the Bill that became the Finance (No.2) Act 2017, the Minister will know my concern that small businesses in Britain will be saddled with the 13th VAT directive. He has set out that the Government’s intention is that a new directive will come into place before we leave the European Union, so will he clarify whether he expects British...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Aman Vyas (20 Nov 2017)
