Scottish Parliament: Violent Crime (11 May 2022)

Liam McArthur: ...justice. That day, Mr Kerr’s speech managed to strike a progressive, conciliatory and consensual chord with colleagues right across the chamber. Back in those relatively halcyon days when David Gauke had the UK justice brief, Conservatives seemed to be less obsessed with whether justice was hard or soft than whether it was effective. Sadly, Mr Kerr’s incarnation as a progressive...

Accelerated Payment Notices (18 Mar 2022)

Steven Baker: ..., tells taxpayers that they cannot even begin to settle their cases until the litigation has played out. That could take years or even decades. The then Financial Secretary to the Treasury, David Gauke, made this argument in favour of introducing APNs: “The Government will not tolerate tax avoidance and Accelerated Payments has been a real game changer. It is no longer possible for these...

Automatic Pension Enrolment — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (26 Jan 2022)

Guy Opperman: ...West Durham’s ten-minute rule Bill. The simple truth is that when I acquired this job, back in the dim mists of time in June 2017, I was given two primary responsibilities by the late, lamented David Gauke, who was the Secretary of State. The first was, “Get us to 8%”—bear in mind that automatic enrolment was not even at 5% at that stage. It is a massive triumph for this country,...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 212 (15 Nov 2021)

Lord Dubs: ...are people who say, “Send them in and keep them in longer—six months is too short”, but the public are quite sensible and understand what is going on. I can only refer to previous Ministers, David Gauke and Rory Stewart, who both said it was necessary to introduce the presumption against short sentences. I think we can manage to do that. The amendment of my noble friend Lord...

Equitable Life (21 Jan 2021)

Julian Lewis: ..., but he is the latest in a long line of Ministers who have had to defend the indefensible. On interrogating my own website, I find that the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury in June 2010 was Mr David Gauke, and he said then: “The coalition Government have pledged to make fair and transparent payment to Equitable Life policyholders, through an independently designed payment scheme, for...

Public Bill Committee: Pension Schemes Bill [Lords]: New Clause 1 - Auto-enrolment (5 Nov 2020)

Guy Opperman: ...the new clauses in sequential order to assist colleagues in their understanding, and at least then my notes will prove relatively useful. On new clauses 1 and 5, the former Secretary of State, David Gauke—he is much missed in this place—set out provisions for the automatic enrolment review to be enacted by this and future Governments. There is a cross-party approach, particularly on...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (26 Oct 2020)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...out of London and the south-east to other parts of the UK, with Scotland alone having a fiscal deficit of £15 billion—namely, a subsidy from richer England—according to a recent article by David Gauke, who served in the Treasury for seven years. We do not want yet another stand-off at this moment in time with the devolved nations, able to hold things up. There has been quite enough of...

Stamp Duty Land Tax (Temporary Relief) Bill (13 Jul 2020)

Dan Carden: ...Miller, deputy director and head of tax at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, called the plans “mad.” The former Member for South West Hertfordshire and former Chief Secretary to the Treasury, David Gauke, said: “Even 2 days of speculation” over such plans would be “unhelpful but 4 months…would be hugely counter-productive.”

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill [Lords] (8 Jun 2020)

John Hayes: ...marriage is one such commitment. Our existing law is founded on the ancient understanding of what marriage is: a vow. Progressive activists for the Bill, such as the Lord Chancellor’s old ally, David Gauke, say that alleging fault increases acrimony in a divorce, but that notion is based on a misunderstanding of marriage. Changing the law may cheapen marriage, but it cannot change the...

Income tax (charge) (17 Mar 2020)

Steve Barclay: ...of excellent maiden speeches that we have heard today. The first was by my hon. Friend the Member for South West Hertfordshire (Mr Mohindra). It was fitting that he paid tribute to his predecessor David Gauke, who was not only respected across the House but very much liked and respected within the Treasury as an institution. In an excellent speech, my hon. Friend the Member for Blyth...

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill [HL] - Second Reading (5 Feb 2020)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: ...the divorce process. In this regard I was rather troubled when, in another place on 25 June 2019, the Member of Parliament for Mid Dorset and North Poole, intervened on the then Lord Chancellor, David Gauke, and asked what the Government were doing to help prevent marriages breaking down. Mr Gauke responded: “Once the point of a divorce is reached, it is likely—the evidence suggests...

Commission on Justice in Wales (22 Jan 2020)

Chris Evans: ...Justice and Lord Chancellors. Last February, I secured a debate in this very Chamber in which I talked about the need to reform short prison sentences. I was heartened by the then Lord Chancellor, David Gauke, who talked about abolishing them. The then Minister, Rory Stewart, said he would put his career on the line if he did not deliver the end of short sentences. However, last week we...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

David Gauke: Many of us are still concerned that we may end up with a no-deal exit for Great Britain. Can my right hon. and learned Friend assure me that we will make sure, on the face of the Bill, that Parliament has an opportunity to vote before 1 July on whether the implementation period should be extended—whether for one or two years—if it does not look like we are going to get in the...
