Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 84 - Compensation for Victims of Economic Crime (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: Has the Minister any thoughts on the international forums that have been set up—for example, the Russian Elites, Proxies, and Oligarchs Taskforce and the European Commission’s Freeze and Seize Taskforce. What contribution are the UK Government planning to make to those processes?

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 84 - Compensation for Victims of Economic Crime (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I have no further comments, and I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 76 - Whistleblowing: economic crime (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I will be brief because my right hon. Friend the Member for Barking has, again, made the case so eloquently. We support new clause 76. The basic fact is that by their very nature, money laundering and economic crime are very often linked to serious organised crime gangs and hostile states. We are dealing with some pretty frightening people. Without adequate protection, the stakes for an...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 79 - Identification doctrine (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: We fully welcome the new clause, which we think is very important to ensure that all perpetrators of economic crime are caught and dealt with.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 80 - Forfeiture of recoverable property obtained through economic crime (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: We welcome these new clauses, which would give effect to the Government’s stated intention to unlock the proceeds of crime held in bank accounts to fund law enforcement efforts to tackle economic crime. Their adoption would also optimise the potential of the defence against money laundering regime and streamline the process of UK law enforcement identifying tainted wealth and being able to...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 84 - Compensation for Victims of Economic Crime (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. As this is the last time I will be on my feet, I thank the Committee; it has been an excellent set of debates, and I look forward to further constructive engagement with the Government on these matters. The context of new clause 84 is the devastation caused by Putin’s barbaric and illegal war for the lives and livelihoods of Ukraine’s...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 75 - The Economic Crime Committee of Parliament (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I am happy to support new clause 75, tabled by my right hon. Friend the Member for Barking, which would require the Secretary of State by regulation to establish a body to be known as the economic crime committee of Parliament. The new clause is driven by and based on the fundamental principles of transparency and accountability. Our call for those two principles to be adhered to is important...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 73 - Offence of failure to prevent fraud, false accounting or money laundering (29 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Mr Robertson. I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for Barking. The passion and eloquence with which she spoke was exemplary in terms of reminding us about what is at the heart of the Bill and one of the top priorities that we want to achieve. I do not want to say much more; how can I follow that? New clause 73 would introduce a new...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Floating Offshore Wind Manufacturing Investment Scheme (28 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether the £160 million funding for Floating Offshore Wind Manufacturing Investment Scheme will be maintained.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 67 - Civil asset recovery in cases of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I wish briefly to concur with my right hon. Friend’s every word. He has made a powerful case about unexplained wealth orders. That was something of a false dawn for the reasons he set out. Similar to what we said about SLAPPs, we are concerned about the chilling effect—the vast disparity between the financial firepower of the people that the UWOs seek to go after and that of the NCA and,...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 64 - Disclosure of information in the public interest likely to be relevant to the investigation of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I will be brief. I fully support the comments made by my right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill, and I fully support the new clause. I pay tribute to the other Members he mentioned who have played an important role in raising the profile and awareness of this very important issue. The Committee has an opportunity to reflect on the need for urgent action by the Government to...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 60 - Reporting requirement (enforcement capabilities) (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister for that feedback. We want to ensure there is a mechanism to check and verify that the FCA is able and resourced to do what we want it to do. Our worry is that if we take a hands-off approach and leave it to its own devices without looking at whether it is achieving what we want it to achieve, in this fast-moving world, we could potentially lose control of the situation....

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 60 - Reporting requirement (enforcement capabilities) (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister for those points. We feel that it is a bit of a leap of faith but, on the basis of the assurances that he has given, I am happy to withdraw the clauses. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 60 - Reporting requirement (enforcement capabilities) (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: New clause 60 takes us back to some of the issues we touched on during Tuesday’s debate on part 4 of the Bill in relation to cryptoassets. Considering how many new regulations there are in this area, it is worth taking stock of how well the regulations already in place have been implemented to date and what more needs to be done to ensure that those responsible for enforcing the measures in...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 54 - Entities from high-risk jurisdictions: prohibition on ownership of UK land (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: We are really just going back to the point about prevention being better than cure. Of course, what is really important here is that it is our sovereign Government, our Treasury, doing the designations. It is our Treasury and other expertise in our British Government saying, “That jurisdiction over there is high risk. It has lax control on money laundering. It has no sense, really, of what...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 54 - Entities from high-risk jurisdictions: prohibition on ownership of UK land (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister for those points. We remain unconvinced by the position and would like to push this new clause to a Division.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 55 - Updating duty: frequency (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. New clause 55 also provides a simple solution to what appears to be a flaw in the Bill’s current drafting, which could be exploited by criminals seeking to exploit any legal loopholes left open to them. Under the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022, companies required to register their ownership of UK property are...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 55 - Updating duty: frequency (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister for those clarifications. This was an opportunity to set out those assurances, which we are happy to accept. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.
