Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Technology Companies: Tax (11 Sep 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: Contrary to the comments of the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, international co-ordination on tax has frequently been blocked by the Government. We saw that particularly when it came to the taxation of trusts with both David Cameron and now the current Government arguing against more transparency. It is no surprise that, as a result, a director of Fidelity International and other...

Brexit, Science and Innovation (6 Sep 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the Chair of the Science and Technology Committee for starting this debate in such a positive manner, and I am grateful for his work and the work of other Select Committees in this area. It is a real pleasure to follow the interesting remarks of the hon. Member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk (John Lamont). Unlike him, I will refer to the impact of some of the matters...

Brexit, Science and Innovation (6 Sep 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am pleased to see the Minister nodding his head. I have also been pleased to see him in my constituency learning about some of the technology associated with some of that scientific research. We see in Oxford, through European funding and collaboration, the development of new medical technologies and of new clean energies for the future, and important work on dealing with modern threats...

Tenant Fees Bill: Prohibitions applying to landlords (5 Sep 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am pleased that the Government have finally accepted the need to ban tenant fees, for which my party has called for no fewer than five years—I have personally campaigned for the ban for four years. I support the Labour Front-Bench amendments, because the Bill does not go far enough. We need further specification of the fee regime to make it more user-friendly, and we need to increase...

Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (Money): Cycling: Gilligan Report (4 Sep 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way in the limited time he has left. I just wanted to make the point that Oxford City Council has a cycling champion and it is doing the very largest amount it can within the existing funding packet. To do more, it really does need funding, so will he please give us an intimation of where that additional funding will come from?

Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (Money): Cycling: Gilligan Report (4 Sep 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for securing this essential debate. As local MPs we are both keen cyclists, which is wonderful. I am not sure whose hair is slicker—I think it is probably hers. I am pleased that the hon. Lady has raised the issue of segregated lanes, because research conducted by Oxford Brookes University shows that segregated lanes are important for getting more people...

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: May I briefly ask whether the British economy was growing when Labour left office?

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: indicated dissent.

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: May I respectfully ask how exactly the IFS was able to analyse the Conservative party’s policies, when there was no indication in its manifesto of how any of them would be funded? It appears slightly peculiar to pick on the small number of criticisms made by the IFS of some elements of Labour’s assumptions when no information whatever was provided by the Minister’s party.

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Mr Gray. I thank the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham) for securing the debate, as well as the Backbench Business Committee. I am delighted that we are talking about the remit of the Office for Budget Responsibility. I strongly agree with the hon. Member for North East Derbyshire (Lee Rowley) that it is an important...

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: In the context of the OBR, the problem is that we have just heard from some Members that the OBR’s remit should be extended to cover party political manifestos, and we have the Government making a huge spending commitment during its period in office, and yet no details have been provided for how the spending will arise. Many public servants are reading the tea leaves, not least those...

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I would be very happy to do so.

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I absolutely will, Mr Gray. The hon. Gentleman suggested that the OBR’s remit could be extended to look at such figures. As I said, Labour is not against that. We might be interested in looking at that, but the figures have to be provided in the first place. Sadly that was not the case for his party at the last general election. I humbly suggest that as a first step towards that...

Office for Budget Responsibility — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I will do the large-scale demolition later, but I will ask the hon. Gentleman one question now: where were the costings in his party’s manifesto?

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Precisely on that point—which I have raised repeatedly with Ministers, but to no avail—does she accept that the Government’s position of not allowing advice agencies to help people with their claims after they changed the implied consent rules is shown to be completely bankrupt when such a high proportion of people cannot get...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate with you in the Chair, Sir David. I congratulate the hon. Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson) on securing the debate, which has been very inclusive and interesting, and on his illuminating speech. Many of these issues have been discussed before, as the hon. Gentleman mentioned. They were foreshadowed in our debates about recent Finance Bills, in...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I beg the hon. Gentleman’s pardon. I am very sorry about that. He will perhaps be even more perplexed when I mention that, rather than pound pinching, my family talked about looking after the pennies and the pounds looking after themselves. Perhaps that reveals a psychological difference between lowland and Ulster Scots. Of course, we need to look after the pennies and the...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I was pleased to hear the Minister say from a sedentary position that they are working on that. I hope the UK Government will do so with rather more application than they did on support for the steel sector, of which I had an inside view as a Member of the European Parliament: they made no attempt to secure clearance for the kind of support we saw applied in countries such as Romania, which...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for those comments. I acknowledge that there is not necessarily the awareness to ensure that it does have such an impact. Some of the matters he just raised have led to calls for a redesign of the duty, which some believe could lead to a greater environmental impact. One suggestion, which was examined in 1998, was whether it would be better to levy the duty...

Backbench Business: Air Passenger Duty — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (10 Jul 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that interesting point. Hypothecation of tax is relatively unusual in the UK. My party believes—he will expect me to say this—that there needs to be much more investment in those technologies. That would be positive for our country, whether funds are hypothecated from a particular area or found through other mechanisms. One other aspect of...
