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 (Caroline...

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 that...

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?

Paradise Papers (6 Nov 2017)

Nigel Mills: Will the Minister use the latest leak as a spur to the publication of certain things for which we have been waiting for a while? The anti-corruption strategy was promised for last December, but it got lost when the then champion stood down at the election. We are still waiting to know whether we will have a public register of the ownership of properties here by overseas companies. Can we move...

Finance Bill: Digital reporting and record-keeping for income tax etc (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Mills: At a Public Accounts Committee sitting last week on the future customs border and the software upgrade for that, the permanent secretary appeared to suggest that Making Tax Digital was the highest priority IT programme for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. Would the Minister agree with that, or does he think that we should prioritise making sure that our systems can cope with the many...

Finance Bill: Digital reporting and record-keeping for income tax etc (31 Oct 2017)

Nigel Mills: I commend to the Minister the better solution to this issue: making the online marketplaces themselves liable for the VAT on sales outside the EU. At the Public Accounts Committee, Amazon thought that that was a better solution and it would be happy to implement it. The EU wants to do it. The Government have consulted on split payment. Is it not time to push ahead to ensure that we get all...

European Council (23 Oct 2017)

Nigel Mills: I welcome the conclusions about the need to have a fair and effective tax system in which all companies across Europe pay their share of taxes. Did the Prime Minister have the chance to urge the EU to follow the progress we have made on more transparency for international companies, and will she commit to extending that to overseas owners of UK properties?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Railways: Smart Ticketing (19 Oct 2017)

Nigel Mills: Can the Minister require train operators to allow passengers who start their journey at a station that has no ticket facilities to use a print-at-home ticket, so that passengers at Langley Mill station in my constituency can actually use the cheaper advance tickets that they currently cannot?
