Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I am grateful and very pleased to be here as the first brick is placed into the strong foundation that we will be building for a post-Brexit Britain. This is the first real piece of legislation enabling us to see what it will look like. I congratulate the Minister on the Bill’s brevity and concision. Hopefully that pattern will be repeated. I welcome the Bill and indeed our leaving...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Kit Malthouse: As I was about to say, in truth, Euratom is the French. It is anchored around France, with its 58 reactors, and they are the only serious nuclear player among the EU 27. The UK is second and Ukraine, although not a member—as my right hon. Friend the Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey) pointed out, it is now a special associate of Euratom, as it were—is third. Nevertheless, we now have...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I absolutely think that nuclear waste is important, particularly to us in this country. That is why we should have total control of it ourselves and not be reliant on a series of countries that will perhaps not even be willing to put money into researching how to dispose of, or reprocess or otherwise use nuclear waste. We have been members of the IAEA since 1957. We have the capability to...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Kit Malthouse: No, I completely disagree with my right hon. Friend. This is not the wrong time; it is exactly the right time for us to recognise that there is a world beyond the EU in terms of nuclear research. There has been much angst in the House already about nuclear scientists being able to travel freely, but I would point out that they do actually exist outside the European Union. There are lots of...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Kit Malthouse: It has not prevented us, but we now have the opportunity to recognise that the nuclear community is global. While Euratom has served its purpose thus far, the point I am trying to make is that the trend of European opinion is very much against nuclear, so those countries are unlikely to continue pumping the money into Euratom that it has hitherto enjoyed. That is why we need to look...

Women and Equalities: Domestic Violence: Police Resources (12 Oct 2017)

Kit Malthouse: Alcohol plays a significant part in the scourge of domestic violence, so will the Minister consider using the forthcoming legislation she mentioned to allow the use of alcohol abstinence monitoring orders in domestic violence cases, given that they are proving so successful with respect to other violent offences?

Finance Bill: Termination payments etc: amounts chargeable on employment income (11 Oct 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I am seeking to ensure my hon. Friend understands that this does not benefit the companies; this is of benefit to individuals who take advantage. There is no tax benefit to the companies because it is income tax that is payable. [Interruption.] Well, there is national insurance—employers’ NI.

Schools: National Funding Formula (14 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I welcome the Secretary of State’s announcement of the retention of local authority discretion for the next two years, which will assist my village schools, many of which are sparse but not quite sparse enough. Can she reassure me that, at the end of that two years, the level of funding that those village schools receive will effectively become baked in as the baseline for future...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I was honoured when I was asked to be co-chairman of Women2Win—and pleased, because I recognise that gender equality in this place is the responsibility of men as much as women. I have three points to make. First, I am conscious that role models matter. I know because I am the proud owner, with my wife, of a pair of five-year-old twins, a girl and a boy. Pleasingly, our young daughter...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: The hon. Lady is absolutely right; there is certainly not enough literature and so on for young people, but the situation is better than it used to be. I recommend “Princess Smartypants” for young girls who want a good combination. It was a real shock to come here after 16 years in London government, where politicians do not actually get a lot of abuse, and realise how much abuse...

Parliamentary Candidates: Barriers for Women (13 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I completely agree. It is incumbent on everyone—women, the Government, men and society—to present the real picture of what happens here, so that women who are put off by the principal atmosphere projected in the media realise that there are other aspects of the work beyond the yah-boo politics in the Chamber. I am with those who suggest that we should have a proxy system. Frankly,...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Moray (Douglas Ross) on his fantastic exposition. I know that he is a Member of Parliament, but he is obviously also an unpaid advocate for VisitScotland. I will do my best to visit his beautiful part of the country, having had a fantastic February half-term there just this year. I also congratulate the hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: I was about to come to that. The rise in taxation on dividend says something about how we treat the proceeds of risk. The argument has always been that dividends should be taxed less than income to recognise that risk. More times than not, if someone invests in a company, they lose their money. In some spheres, such as life sciences—a specialist area of mine—nine times out of 10...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: That is a very good and broad point, and I could talk for a long time about it—[Hon. Members: “Go on.”] I wish. It is definitely my perception, and the evidence certainly shows, however, that the operation of capital is becoming more and more sluggish across the western world. As I said earlier when I mentioned those top 500 companies, capital is incredibly sluggish,...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Kit Malthouse: As I have said, part of the problem is related to housing. However, the Government have made huge strides in trying to increase the take-home pay of the lowest paid. There is the rise in the personal allowance, which will increase even further. There is the national living wage, which has raised wage rates altogether. There is the apprenticeship scheme, which is giving young people a route to...
