Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Nigel Mills: I welcome the progress made last week. Will the Prime Minister confirm that an ongoing role for the ECJ for eight years does not mean that EU nationals in the UK will have greater rights than UK nationals?

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Audit Costs (7 Dec 2017)

Nigel Mills: What comparative assessment he has made of the operating costs of the National Audit Office and auditing bodies in other countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Accounts Commission: Audit Costs (7 Dec 2017)

Nigel Mills: I am grateful for that answer. I have no doubt about the great work that the NAO does as our spending watchdog, but what more can my hon. Friend do to be assured that it is cost-effective itself?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Devolution: Derbyshire and the East Midlands (4 Dec 2017)

Nigel Mills: What progress he has made on devolving decision making to local communities in (a) Derbyshire and (b) the east midlands.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Devolution: Derbyshire and the East Midlands (4 Dec 2017)

Nigel Mills: After the failure of the earlier devolution proposals, can the Minister confirm that the Government are still interested in further proposals coming from Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, perhaps along the lines of the Derby and Nottingham metro proposal published a couple of weeks ago? Can he also confirm that there is now no requirement for an elected mayor?

Public Country-by-Country Reporting (22 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: I thank you, Mrs Main, and all those who have participated in another interesting debate on this issue. Yes, we are all disappointed that we have not managed to move the Government to at least set a backstop date; I suspect that is something that we will have to come back to. Until somebody takes the lead, I suspect this will never happen. We have set an example—we have taken unilateral...

Public Country-by-Country Reporting (22 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: I beg to move, That this House has considered public country-by-country reporting. I thank the Minister for being here. Today is a busy day for the Treasury, so I am grateful that he has found the time to respond to the debate. I also thank him for some of the measures that we heard earlier in the Budget, especially on the challenge that the digital economy and large companies pose to our tax...

Public Country-by-Country Reporting (22 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: That might be slightly above my pay grade, but I am grateful for the hon. Gentleman’s questioning of that situation. That is the challenge we put to the Minister today. The Government have already imposed a requirement on the largest companies operating in the UK to give that information to HMRC. Two years ago, they accepted an amendment from the right hon. Member for Don Valley...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding Formula (20 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: Whether she plans to introduce a new police funding formula in the next 12 months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Funding Formula (20 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: The Minister will know that Derbyshire has been particularly badly affected by the current formula, so we would greatly appreciate some progress on the new formula. In the meantime, can he assure my local police force that there will be at least an inflationary rise in its funding for next year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: Will the Prime Minister join me in praising the work of community transport providers such as CT4TC—Community Transport for Town and Country—in Amber Valley that provide services right around the country? Will she intervene to sort out the threat to the permit they use as not-for-profit providers, which threatens their services? In the meantime, will she issue guidance to confirm...

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Hackney South and Shoreditch (Meg Hillier), and I join in the congratulations to the right hon. Member for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge) on her securing this important debate. I absolutely agree with the conclusions she came to, but I probably took a slightly different route to get to them. I should start, though, by saying that I do not think...

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: I agree with the hon. Lady exactly, but the point I was trying to make was that I do not think that the size of the tax gap is down to a lack of effort or attempts to introduce new rules or measures. The problem is that the avoiders and evaders are perhaps one step ahead and move on to different things. That is why the Panama papers and the Paradise papers show that people are now just going...

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: I agree with that view. The Government did introduce the general anti-abuse rule. It was quite a large step for them to take, as it said that HMRC can effectively ignore what is written in the law and apply what should have been written in the law. There is scope to extend that and to improve behaviour. It is right that we now expect large businesses to publish their tax strategy. It means...

Miscellaneous: Northern Ireland Budget Bill (13 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: I hope not to get too close to that time limit. I also rise to support the Bill, although it is a shame to have to do so on the basis that it is the least worst option available to us, as we would all prefer a Bill that represents an attractive and sensible way forward, but that is where we are. I agree with all the praise that has been given to the Secretary of State for his great patience...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (13 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: Can the Minister update the House on progress with the pensions dashboard and confirm that all pension schemes will be required to release the comprehensive data required to make that system useful?
