Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: NHS Funding (11 Sep 2018)

Peter Dowd: Clearly the Chief Secretary to the Treasury does not even know what she has put out in her name. The pension changes snuck out on Thursday evening could negatively affect the pensions of a further 4 million public sector workers—[Interruption.] No, that is not the case. So I ask on behalf of those dedicated public sector workers—nurses, doctors, social workers, teachers, support...

Public Sector Pay (24 Jul 2018)

Peter Dowd: These uninhabited proposals will do nothing to repair the damage done to our brilliant public sector workers by this Government’s slash-and-burn policy in relation to public sector pay. Over the past seven years, our teachers have lost £2,500, our firefighters £3,000, our prison officers £4,000 and our paramedics £4,000 in real-terms pay cuts. Even the armed forces...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill: EU VAT area and pre-commencement requirements (16 Jul 2018)

Peter Dowd: I read the White Paper on the train home on Thursday, if only out of a sense of morbid curiosity, but following the Prime Minister’s capitulation to the Brexiteers today, that curiosity has turned to a sense of the macabre. To begin with, we had the woman in the bunker with the blacked-out windows saying we were outward facing. Are we? This from the Prime Minister who invented a hostile...

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Peter Dowd: What sort of message does it send to banks when all these closures are happening and in 2016 the Government decide to cut, for example, the banking levy from £3 billion to £1.3 billion, sequentially, year on year? The Minister can try to duck the issue, but he gives a bung to the banks while they close their branches, and that is not acceptable.

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Peter Dowd: Okay, so if we push the bank aside and forget that, how does the Minister explain the loss to the taxpayer in the sale of the Post Office, which was another billion or two pounds—or is that irrelevant as well? How does he explain the reduction of 26% in corporation tax for banks and other corporations, to 19%, when people in the Gallery cannot get a penny out of the Government?

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Drew Hendry) for...

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Peter Dowd: Okay. Thank you, Mr Bone. The report states: “In the wake of the financial crisis, the banking sector’s reputation has suffered from a number of disturbing scandals, many of which have had a catastrophic effect on thousands of individual lives and livelihoods. They have also damaged confidence, resulting in reduced demand for business borrowing and, consequently, a slowing of...

Backbench Business: Banking Sector Failures — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (12 Jul 2018)

Peter Dowd: I think the hon. Gentleman should tell it as it is and stop holding back on these matters. Clearly, there is something rotten in the state of Denmark. The banking system appears, at times, to have fallen under the worst instincts of greed, instinct and, in some cases, a predatory capitalism, which others have alluded to. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Government bailing out the...
