Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Corporation Tax (18 Jul 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...over cutting corporate tax rates. Is the Minister aware that lowering corporate tax rates now presents the appearance of Britain trying to undercut countries with which we need to agree a decent Brexit deal—at a time when businesses are not confident in the Government’s leadership, but are instead “aghast” and “confused” at their approach to Brexit?

European Council (26 Jun 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...). If the Prime Minister truly is concerned about the future of British science and European funding, why is there no mention of British science and European funding in this statement, any of the Brexit Bills or the Queen’s Speech?

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: On Saturday, I was at BMW Cowley with 15,000 people, all of them BMW workers and their families. Just two days later, we had the starkest warning yet from BMW about the damage of a chaotic deal on Brexit for customs processes. When will the Prime Minister’s Government ditch the ideology and in-fighting and prioritise reaching a workable deal on customs?

Public Bill Committee: Finance (No.3) Bill: Resolution of double taxation disputes (11 Dec 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...agreement, the UK would initially, at least, continue to align itself with EU regulations, but little information has been provided alongside the clause to indicate how the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal would impact on Council directive 2017/1852, particularly if there was divergence later on. Similarly, the Treasury’s policy note offers no guidance about whether the EU’s resolution...

Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill [Lords] (11 Feb 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: ...interest is harming our country. The contribution to GDP from business investment was negative for the fourth quarter in a row; that is a clear sign that uncertainty surrounding the Government’s Brexit strategy is acting as a real drag on the economy. The construction sector actually contracted this quarter, and after two consecutive quarters of negative growth, the UK manufacturing...

Exiting the European Union (Financial Services) (18 Feb 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: ...wish certain SIs to be taken on the Floor of the House and others to be taken in Committee—aside, that is, from a desire to fill the timetable for this week, after their mismanagement of the Brexit process. Issues of such importance as our nation’s financial stability and resilience surely deserve better than this.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: EU Protocol on animal sentience (15 Nov 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...are so concerned. I want first to focus on animal welfare. We have heard Ministers say many times—we heard it again today—that animal welfare will be non-negotiable in our trade deals post Brexit. However, for those looking from the outside, it jars—perhaps that is the appropriate word—to hear the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs making those...

Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill [Lords] (11 Feb 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: ...not want to repeat them all, but I will summarise the core reasons why the official Opposition cannot support the Bill. The Conservative Government often mix their metaphors when presenting their Brexit process. This Bill, for example, part of what the Government have described as an onshoring process, is presented as dealing with those so-called in-flight measures that have not yet...

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Offshore Receipts in Respect of Intangible Property (20 Nov 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...that HMRC provides. Indeed, as Members have mentioned, that would become even more of a problem if HMRC had to attempt to sort out the customs and VAT chaos that would be caused by a no-deal Brexit. Our uncertain future relations with the EU are at the root of the penultimate Opposition amendment that I will speak to, amendment 23. The amendment requires a consideration of the implications...

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Offshore Receipts in Respect of Intangible Property (20 Nov 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...19, which would require the Government to undertake a review of our controlled foreign companies regime, with particular consideration of how it would be affected in the event of a no-deal Brexit. The Conservative Government appear to treat countering tax avoidance as a game of whack-a-mole, rather than the long-term strategic approach that is surely required. As a result, we wish to press...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords]: Independent review of regulations with counter-terrorism purpose (1 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...programme of reform so that we stamp out dirty money from the British financial system. While the Minister referred to amendment 21, he failed to grasp its significance and intention. As with other Brexit-related Bills, the Opposition have many concerns about the wide-ranging powers that this Bill gives to Ministers, and in particular the way in which it gives Ministers the ability to...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Analysis of Effectiveness of Provisions of this Act on Tax Avoidance and Evasion (19 Dec 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...skilled jobs to HMRC restructuring, which is reducing HMRC’s resources at the very time the demands being placed on it are heavier than ever before, not least due to the additional burden of post-Brexit arrangements for customs and for taxing highly mobile profits. I find it astonishing that we still have no indication from the Government of how they will deal with the competition...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...what they call an elite establishment that they form part of themselves. Last week, we saw the Leave. EU campaign present George Soros, of all people, as part of an imaginary conspiracy to thwart Brexit. The unpleasant insinuation was very clear. Members in this place must not allow themselves to become carriers for those seeking to stoke division among the British people. The rise in hate...

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

Anneliese Dodds: ...may be sanguine about lost revenue; we saw just last week another Treasury Minister talking about the potential trade-offs between being able to move goods across borders in the event of a no-deal Brexit and potentially losing revenue by not being able to collect VAT. No study has been done on the potential impact of that. We have had nothing from the Government that spells that out, but...

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Offshore Receipts in Respect of Intangible Property (20 Nov 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...is necessitated by EU law and applies to individuals and trustees who move to another EU or EEA country, and given that some Government Members sadly flirt recklessly with the prospect of a no-deal Brexit, I would have expected the Government to explain what might happen in this policy area as our relationship with the EU changes. That was not the case in respect of the information about...

Exiting the European Union (Financial Services) (18 Feb 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: ...; I am sure Members can come to their own conclusions on why this debate is taking place on the Floor of the House today. These statutory instruments make provision for a regulatory framework after Brexit in the event that we crash out without a deal. The volume of such legislation is deeply concerning for accountability and proper scrutiny. The Government have assured the Opposition that...

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...recruitment and retention because of the very high cost of living and the historically high number of EU staff in our local NHS, who are under threat from the Government’s shambolic approach to Brexit. Too few staff for high demand has led to clear reductions—that’s right: reductions—in patient care in my local area. Between January and March this year, 273 non-urgent surgical...

Summer Adjournment (25 Jul 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: ...Why are we denying our country the benefits of the 400,000 extra jobs that would come from a green new deal? When we return to Parliament, I hope it will not be to the chaos of an impending no-deal Brexit, but even more fundamentally it must not be a return to business as usual. When we come back at the beginning of September, it must be to a legislative programme that meets the...

Supplementary: Intangible Fixed Assets: Exceptions to degrouping charges etc (8 Jan 2019)

Anneliese Dodds: ..., as we have just seen in relation to the loan charge. Another high was the fact that we saw the House seize the initiative to act to protect our country from the negative consequences of a no-deal Brexit for our economy and for our safety and resilience, as set out by the right hon. Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) in what I thought was an extraordinary speech. I understand...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (31 Oct 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...the EU. That is not what I have heard from biosciences companies, nor from firms in many other sectors. My hon. Friend the Member for St Helens North spelled out very clearly how a chaotic, no-deal Brexit would cause “economic catastrophe” for areas such as the one he represents, and indeed many others, as was highlighted by my hon. Friends the Members for Hampstead and Kilburn (Tulip...
