Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Examination of Witnesses (19 Oct 2022)

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Examination of Witnesses (19 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Q Thank you. When you appeared before the Public Accounts Committee earlier this year about the British Steel pensions scandal, you and your colleague indicated that many of the things that MPs might have expected you to do to protect British Steel pension holders, you did not have the power to do at that time. Does the Bill, as it currently stands, give you sufficient powers to intervene in...

Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Examination of Witnesses (19 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Q I was thinking particularly about the powers to stop the damage from being done, rather than simply the power to pay financial redress, which usually takes a long time, is very stressful for victims and sometimes comes too late for victims who do not live long enough to see the compensation. The gross misbehaviour of a large number of financial advisers led to that scandal and many others....

Economic Update (17 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Can I thank the Chancellor in advance for what he has promised to publish over the next two weeks because it will be the starkest ever confirmation of the awful price of Better Together? Unless you are a banker on a bumper bonus, which not many of my constituents are, you are looking at higher food prices, higher fuel prices, higher mortgages, reducing wages in real terms, falling benefits in...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill (13 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Being a Scot, and in deference to the sensitivities of supporters of Celtic, Rangers and the Scottish women’s football team, I will maybe not talk about football, if that is okay by everybody else. Hopefully we will still have somebody left in Europe after tonight. I welcome this long overdue Bill, but let us not kid on that it was made necessary by the illegal war crimes that have been...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill (13 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: What does it say about the Government’s priorities if they have taken six years and not brought in failure to prevent legislation for economic crime but have managed to bring in failure to prevent legislation that fines companies tens of thousands of pounds if they unintentionally give a job to somebody who under immigration law is not entitled to be here? Is there a question of priorities...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill (13 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that there is a grave injustice when those who have done the right thing have a lifetime loss of earnings of millions of pounds, but when crooked accountants are called up before and disciplined by the Financial Reporting Council, their loss of earnings from being suspended for a short time, which could run into millions of pounds, is taken into account? The...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill (13 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: There is, of course, only one Alison Thewliss. She mentioned Graham Barrow as one of a number of exceptional individuals who do a lot to expose the kind of things going on at Companies House that it should really be doing. I do not know whether she has followed his Twitter account recently. On 10 October, he tweeted that Companies House had just accepted the registration of a business called...

Voting by Proxy (Amendment and Extension) (12 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: Does my hon. Friend share my surprise and puzzlement that most people are not allowed to have a vote counted if they do not physically go through the Lobby, but there is absolutely no requirement on us to have listened to a single word of the debate? We do not need to know what it is we are voting on, as long as we turn up. Does he understand why my constituents, and possibly his, think that...

Peter Grant: Will the Minister give way?

Health and Social Care Levy (Repeal) Bill (11 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: I do not often say this, but I welcome the decision that the Government have taken, which is to U-turn on their increase in national insurance contributions, although I utterly reject any suggestion that it should be coupled with any watering down of the previous commitments on funding for health and social care services. I do not think that national insurance is the right name for this tax....

Health and Social Care Levy (Repeal) Bill (11 Oct 2022)

Peter Grant: The former Prime Minister had a mandate to do what he did last year. The hon. Member for South Suffolk (James Cartlidge) says the new Prime Minister has a mandate to do this. Where did that mandate come from? I do not remember Parliament being dissolved for a general election in the last couple of months.
