Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 53 - Beneficial owners in overseas territories (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: My right hon. Friend may well wish to do so. I think that any member of this Committee will understand what I mean when I refer to certain “usual suspects” in cases involving financial dealings that, even with the most charitable interpretation, can only be described as being questionable at best. The language that was ultimately added to the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 50 - Requirement for UK-resident director (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister for his remarks. We are talking about how to make it as easy as possible for those red flags to be clear. If we were to do exception reporting, there may, of course, be a clear explanation in certain circumstances for why there is not a single UK-based company director and perfectly legitimate reasons for that. We think that it would be better to do the exception...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 50 - Requirement for UK-resident director (24 Nov 2022)

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 51 - Registration requirements: UK-based assets held by overseas entity (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The purpose of the new clause is to close what appears to be a loophole in the current requirements on the registration of overseas entities that own property in the UK. The case for the new clause is simple. Under the current rules, as set out primarily in the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022, a foreign company that...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 51 - Registration requirements: UK-based assets held by overseas entity (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: According to our interpretation, schedule 2 of the 2022 Act is unclear about whether a company would be required to disclose the ultimate beneficial owner of any property owned by that company. Our worry is that there is a loophole in the law that talks about the beneficial owner but does not give us the tools to obtain disclosure of who is the ultimate beneficial owner of the property. In...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 51 - Registration requirements: UK-based assets held by overseas entity (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I thank the Minister for that clarification. What rang alarm bells with us were the comments of the Financial Action Task Force, which drew the distinction between the ownership of a company and the ultimate beneficial ownership of any assets held by that company. The Minister has made his position clear, and, again, we just agree to disagree. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 50 - Requirement for UK-resident director (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. New clause 49 sought to ensure that the provisions of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015, which require company directors to be natural persons, would be brought into force. The Opposition welcomed the Minister’s commitment to introducing the necessary regulations to enact that measure in the near future, and we are...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 24 - Disclosure of information relating to bank accounts held by subscribers to a memorandum of association (24 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Sir Christopher. New clause 24, tabled by SNP Members, would add to the transparency of the companies register and enhance the ability of law enforcement to identify suspect registrations. It would do so by requiring the subscribers or initial shareholders of a company to provide information on the location of any bank account held either by the...

Hotel Asylum Accommodation: Local Authority Consultation (23 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: It seems that we come to the Chamber at least once a week to hear about the mess that the Home Secretary is making of an asylum system that her Government have broken. The root cause of today’s urgent question is the failure of the Government to process asylum claims with anything like the efficiency required. In 2012, the Home Office was making 14 asylum decisions a month; it is now making...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: Clause 154 - Law Society: powers to fine in cases relating to economic crime (22 Nov 2022)

Stephen Kinnock: Clause 154 would lift the current statutory cap on the penalties that may be imposed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, as delegated by the Law Society, for breaches of the law on economic crime. I am sure that Members on both sides will welcome the change if, as the Government argue in their impact assessment, it increases the deterrent effect of the financial penalties that may be...
