Results 21–35 of 35 for brexit speaker:Anneliese Dodds

Brexit, Science and Innovation (6 Sep 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: .... We need that clarity—and, as we have heard, we need it very, very soon. We are running out of time on many of these issues. After the White Paper was released before the summer, the head of Brexit strategy for Oxford University, Alastair Buchan, called for the aspirations in the White Paper to become firm, detailed commitments in advance of the October EU Council. We have just heard...

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...

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?

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...

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...

Grenfell Update: The Economy (22 Mar 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...workers must struggle on as their wages become increasingly out of step with the cost of living. All that, of course, is before even mentioning the omnishambles of this Government’s approach to Brexit. I have lost count of the number of business people I have spoken to who are incredulous at the Government’s lack of grip on the negotiation process, and their ideological decision to...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...system. I will first consider the sanctions-related matters before looking at the money laundering matters, although they are of course intrinsically linked. As with much of the Government’s Brexit-related legislation, many concerns have been expressed about the lack of parliamentary oversight of the Bill’s provisions. As my hon. Friend the Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman)...

Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill (8 Jan 2018)

Anneliese Dodds: ...will decide how our country governs its commerce with the rest of the world. Sadly, as the Bills reveal, rather than proceeding with the task in a transparent way, the Government are again using Brexit as an excuse to allocate themselves more powers, which is incredibly dangerous. Decisions about trade can create jobs, but can also, of course, destroy jobs. We have heard powerful...

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

Anneliese Dodds: ...prescient points. The hon. Member for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman) referred to the personnel challenges being experienced by HMRC. They are of enormous concern, as she said, in the context of Brexit, as a result of which we may have more customs challenges. There has been a substantial reduction in HMRC’s headcount of, I believe, around a fifth since 2010. I take on board the points...

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...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...course. Just as with the Budget, this Bill is not fit for purpose and not fit for the future. It falls woefully short of preparing the country for the challenges it faces: from the chaotic no-deal Brexit that this Government still will not rule out to the longest squeeze on wages since Napoleonic times; from record rates of child poverty to our slowdown in productivity, which is unique...

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...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...our yawning productivity and investment gaps to the haemorrhage of public funds caused by tax dodging and, as many have noted, the uncertainty caused by the Government’s shambolic approach to Brexit. We end this debate with new revelations, hot off the press, that the Government have been pleading with businesses to publicly back their Brexit negotiating strategy—pleas that have been...

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?
