Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Inheritance tax on overseas property representing UK residential property (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: Having heard the Minister make a compelling case about the importance of ensuring that non-doms do not avoid paying tax, I look forward to the debate that we will have on new clause 2, which raises exactly the same issues about the treatment of commercial property as a way for non-doms to avoid residential property taxes. I look forward to the Minister supporting the new clause accordingly.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: My hon. Friend is making a powerful point about the nature of these companies based overseas. Does she share my frustration that the Minister seems to think that does not matter because these clauses will only affect companies in the UK while not recognising that those companies have only nominal addresses in the United Kingdom, with their parent companies being based overseas? They are able...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: Be under no illusions, Mr Howarth; I intend very much to speak to the amendments at hand. The Minister argued, slightly bizarrely, that we already have information about whether the changes would affect PFI companies, because the Government have been able to assess that, yet they are rejecting our call to put that information in the public domain. The Minister said clearly that his officials...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: Well, this is why how much tax these companies pay matters. I hate to tell the Minister how to do his job, but I have looked at the PFI and public sector comparator documents used to assess the value for money of the deals, and they explicitly talk about the levels of tax that the companies pay and, indeed, look at how those would be traded off against the cost of borrowing to the public...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: To be clear, the evidence of the problems with the PFI model extends to the not-for-profit model. I encourage the hon. Lady to read the work of Mark Hellowell of the University of Edinburgh. No political party can claim the moral high ground when it comes to private finance in this country.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: The Minister says that he has met the stakeholders affected and is setting out how those companies might be impacted. Will he clarify which companies his officials have met to discuss these rules?

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this morning, Mr Howarth. I am looking forward to this debate because it is something all of us across the House feel concerned about. I recognise that we are debating the Finance Bill. I reassure you that the amendments and the majority of what I will talk about today are about taxation and, in particular, the requirements of the legislation....

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Social investment tax relief (17 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case about the importance of trying to make these kind of rules work for the reality of how social investment often happens in our local communities. Does she agree with me that there is also a concern that by excluding asset-leasing, things like community pubs and community land trusts might also be excluded by the Government, probably unintentionally?...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Social investment tax relief (17 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: As a Co-op, as well as Labour, MP, I am rather passionate about the idea of social investment. The Minister seems to be a little short-sighted about the idea of assets—after all, there are many people looking at running community pubs, for instance, which is a great example of a community asset that we might want to support. I would not see that as an example of a low-risk venture....

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Feminism (12 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: To ask the Minister for Women and Equalities, what assessment she has made of the potential effect on women's rights of the UK leaving the EU.

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Anguilla: Hurricanes and Tornadoes (13 Sep 2017)

Stella Creasy: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what plans she has to match the humantiarian assistance provided by the French Government to the people of St Barts, St Martin and Guadeloupe in providing emergency assistance and reconstruction funds to the people of the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla.

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Stella Creasy: I congratulate the hon. Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) on a wonderful maiden speech. He paints a fantastic picture of a part of the country that I have yet to visit and that clearly has many delights to try, although, on his advice, I will pass on the home-made scones, if I may. May I offer the hon. Gentleman some advice, as somebody who has been here all of seven years? He will find...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Stella Creasy: I thank the Minister for that point, but obviously the Bill is about Making Tax Digital and the intra-EU process is digitised. That is what makes it so seamless for so many companies. When we are making legislation about making VAT a digital entity and working online, surely we should be joining these things up to make it as easy as possible for our constituents who have to deal with these...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Stella Creasy: I want to take up the right hon. Gentleman’s challenge. I am sure that he is proud that the previous Government, of which he was part, extended capital gains tax to residential property sales for non-domiciles, so will he join me in suggesting that we close the loophole on commercial property sales? There is one idea that could raise some money for investment in this country.

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Stella Creasy: The right hon. Gentleman was waxing lyrical about corporation tax earlier. Of course, private finance initiatives—with companies that Members on both sides of the House have concerns about—have been beneficiaries of the Government’s changes to corporation tax. Those companies benefit from the lower corporation tax espoused by the right hon. Gentleman, even though they signed...
