Education: Treating Students Fairly (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2019)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: ...this would be an excellent debate and I have not been disappointed, with some constructive and thoughtful speeches, not least from my noble friend Lady Jenkin on FTSA and the importance of social action. The Government welcome the report and agree that for too long young people have not had a genuine choice in what and where they wish to study. I am sure that your Lordships will agree that...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Draft Spending and Tax Plans 2019-20 (12 Dec 2018)

Derek Mackay: This Scottish budget prepares our economy for the opportunities of the future, enables the transformation of essential public services and builds a more inclusive and just society. It does so in the context of continuing United Kingdom austerity and against a backdrop of a UK Government careering toward Brexit at any cost. In sharp contrast to the chaos and uncertainty of the UK Government,...

Social Media Services - Question for Short Debate (12 Nov 2018)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: My Lords, in some senses this short debate today is a continuation of good and important discussions we had during the Digital Economy Act 2017 and the Data Protection Act 2018—the same stars, perhaps, a smaller audience and a much smaller scale, but nevertheless the points may be similar. In particular, the debate that I hope we shall have tonight builds on concerns about the approach...

Income Tax (Charge) (29 Oct 2018)

Jeremy Corbyn: ..., Labour will raise taxes on the highest earners to fund an increase above the Government’s baseline. But it is not only the national health service that is in crisis. Defence spending has actually been cut; the size of the Army has been cut by a fifth. However, we welcome the donation based on VAT gains to commemorate the Armistice and £1.7 million more for educational programmes to...

Listed Sporting Events — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (11 Jul 2018)

John Grogan: ...it is not an accident. It happens because we have the listed events law, which goes back to the 1950s and was updated in the 1990s, not without controversy. The late Lord Howell was particularly active from the Opposition Back Benches in those days, ensuring that the law in the 1990s was rigorous. We made that decision as a nation, but my fear is that if the World cup had been in our...

Rural Areas: Public Services - Question for Short Debate (9 Jul 2018)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...out a full fleet replacement, investing £1.4 billion in new trains. I am very much looking forward to the benefits that that will bring to customers. As I said in last week’s debate on the NERC Act, this Government are committed to bringing sustainable growth to the rural economy and boosting rural areas so that people who live in the countryside have the same opportunities as those who...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Bill of Data Rights in the Digital Environment (22 Mar 2018)

Liam Byrne: ...ground to cover. New clauses 5 and 6 and new schedule 1, tabled in my name and that of my hon. Friends, are an attempt to provoke the Government into being more ambitious in their strategy for the digital world. Every so often, as a great nation, we make important declarations of rights. Rights are important because they ensure that progress is democratised, but they also provide important...

Community Bank Closures (8 Feb 2018)

Jonathan Edwards: ...of 2008. I thought at the time that MPs were tasked with two great challenges: first, how to ensure that the public never have to bail out banking failure again, and secondly, how to rebalance the economy geographically. In my view, both tasks required a fundamental rethink of how the financial system works. In reality, I am afraid we have made little progress over the past eight years. I...

Work: Lifelong Learning - Motion to Take Note (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Watson of Invergowrie: ...very important aspect of the Government’s legislative programme. That applies to any Government, no matter their colour, because without a coherent strategy to prepare for a strong and expanding economy at least for the decade ahead, no Government can deliver sustained prosperity for their people. Last week the Chancellor announced that, his party’s Governments since 2010 having...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Ian Blackford: ...and his friends from Scotland on the Tory Benches to make sure that we push for a refund of the VAT that has been paid over the past three years. The Chancellor has painted a picture of a strong economy, ready for the impending economic disaster of Brexit. We all have to wonder just what planet he is on. Most workers are seeing a decline in their living standards and have done so since the...

Ways and Means - Financial Statementways and Means (22 Nov 2017)

Philip Hammond: ..., so today I welcome the OBR forecast that there will be another 600,000 people in work by 2022. I am immensely proud of this Government’s record in having created over 3 million new jobs since 2010—incidentally, a rather far cry from the 1.2 million job losses that the right hon. Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) predicted in 2011—but let nobody be in any doubt that...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Data-gathering from money service businesses (24 Oct 2017)

Peter Dowd: It is a pleasure to serve under your stewardship, Mr Walker, notwithstanding the fact that you have just stolen my joke. I asked my daughter, who studied French, what the French for “dénouement” and “ambience” was, but she did not find that very amusing. Clause 69 extends bulk data-gathering powers, which were given to HMRC in the Finance Act 2011, to money service businesses such as...

Science and Innovation Strategy - Question for Short Debate (23 Oct 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...quite rightly, was saying, “What is different about this one?”. I have thought about that a lot. It may lie in our culture, in our great institutions, in our legal system or in our national character. It may lie in the welcome that we have always given to people from different countries. It may lie in that very difficult and shifting balance between social justice and entrepreneurship....

Taxes on Small Businesses — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Derek Thomas: ...account the growth of online shopping and supermarket home delivery services. Structurally, there are many things wrong with business rates. The tax bears little or no relation to the success or activity of a business. The method used to calculate it is arbitrary. Colleagues will be aware that rates are calculated by multiplying the rateable value, based on the assumed rental value of the...
