There is always more to do, but we are in listening...

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (27 Mar 2018)

Lord Duncan of Springbank: ...would join me in that commitment; that is an initiative that would be well worth taking forward. I am conscious that the noble Lord, Lord Browne, raised an interesting point regarding the continuity of the business rate support scheme. Helpfully, the little note that I got back from the Box simply contained the word “Yes”, so I believe that that particular scheme will indeed be...

[Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (27 Mar 2018)

Chris Philp: their full share of payroll taxes. It is inherently rather unfair: local high street businesses pay their full share of business rates and corporation taxes.

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) Bill (21 Mar 2018)

Jim Shannon: ...the Minister outline what help in relation to the rates increase is available for those who are being squeezed financially?

Vauxhall Factory, Ellesmere Port (20 Mar 2018)

Justin Madders: ...the argument for doing it is clear. Let me give another example that relates to Brexit. If Vauxhall invested in solar panels on the site in the attempt to save on energy costs, it would attract a higher business rate. That does not seem in tune with much of what the Government are trying to achieve. Vauxhall has learned that its energy costs per MWh are twice those of plants in France....

Local Authority Financial Sustainability: NAO Report — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Mar 2018)

Mike Amesbury: ...the Government do not have a long-term funding plan for local authorities. That confirms the fear of many councillors and mayors I have spoken to.

My question to the Minister is simple. Does she have a...

Public Bill Committee: Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill: Assessment of extension of the tariff cap to small businesses (15 Mar 2018)

Claire Perry: I can inspire the entire Committee with the assiduousness with which my brilliant team is able to answer my questions. A company chooses the business rate. Those in commercial and retail premises have to choose a business tariff, but, of course, a home business, of which there are millions and millions, can be on a domestic tariff. In a way, there is a sort of self-selection mechanism, but if...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (13 Mar 2018)

Andrew Griffiths: ...Minister, I recognise the real challenges faced by our high streets and, in particular, by independent businesses.
