Tolls on the Mersey Crossings — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Justin Madders: ...sides of the river already say that staff are looking to leave because of the additional cost. When did the so-called northern powerhouse become a tax on jobs? Talking of the northern powerhouse, it would be remiss of me not to mention the great architect of this grand illusion, George Osborne, who hon. Members have already spoken of today. His promises in this area have proved to be as...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Chris Stephens: ...the speech I made in the Chamber less than two weeks ago on the Budget, in which I said: “The only difference between this Chancellor and the previous one is that of style, not substance. Where George Osborne could best be described as a tin of gloss, superficially painting over the cracks in our broken economy, the current Chancellor is the tin of matt, hoping to hide the worst...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (4 Dec 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: ...%. It makes for pretty grim reading. Mr Johnson of the IFS says that, “We are in danger of losing not just one but getting on for two decades of earnings growth”. So what are we going to do about this? George Osborne talked about fixing the roof while the sun is shining. He wanted to achieve his growth by balancing the budget by 2020. This is a pipe dream; it is not going to...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (4 Dec 2017)

Lord Maude of Horsham: ..., the national debt would have risen by that amount, or there would have been tax increases, or front-line services and programmes would have been cut by that amount. In the Autumn Statement of 2014, we published a document, signed off by George Osborne, Danny Alexander and me, which showed that, by 2020, one could essentially do the same again and double those efficiency savings from...

Inequalities - Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2017)

Lord Shinkwin: ...done in this area. I am particularly heartened by the renewed focus on a one-nation vision, which has informed Conservative policy and practice for the last seven years. As we have already heard from other noble Lords, the former Chancellor, George Osborne, played a pivotal role in putting the northern powerhouse centre stage and empowering local government. That is to his enormous and...

Migration Policy and the Economy — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (29 Nov 2017)

Rupa Huq: ...their rights to family reunification, appeal rights, protection from deportation—the list goes on. It is seen as not really satisfactory. We need some flexibility. The fixed target is unmet, unachievable and unrealistic. George Osborne says: “Advanced nations that have shut the door to newcomers now find themselves ageing fast and shrinking as a presence in global...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Stephen Hepburn: ...the crash. In the 1970s, the crash was caused by the tripling of the oil price by OPEC in the middle east. The right hon. and learned Gentleman said that Labour caused the crash in the 2000s, but it was an American crash, which George Osborne now acknowledges, caused by the banks. The right hon. and learned Gentleman talked about the decades of skills we have lost, but that predominantly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Low-paid Workers: Wage Growth (28 Nov 2017)

Tommy Sheppard: The Chancellor’s predecessor, George Osborne, boasted that the minimum wage would be more than £9 an hour by 2020. That forecast has now been downgraded. Now that we are in the middle of the longest fall in living standards in history, why should the very poorest people pay for the crisis? They will lose £500 a year compared with the promise that they were made just this spring.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Emily Thornberry: ...major advanced economies this year contrasts with the slower pace of growth in the UK.” While it has slashed its forecast for UK growth up to 2022, it has upgraded its forecast for the rest of the world. George Osborne used to boast in every Budget that Britain was winning “the global race.” We now have a Government lagging along at the back of the global field and...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Matt Rodda: ...because the supply is not expanding. Conservative Members will point to the Government’s Budget measures last week, but I remain sceptical because other Government measures have not raised the supply of housing. Sadly, under George Osborne, plans for 1,000 new council houses in my constituency were stopped by the Government’s mistaken approach, and the Government have fought...

Armed Forces Act 2006 - Question for Short Debate (23 Nov 2017)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...of two years he had conducted 107 courts martial, with 90 of his soldiers imprisoned in Lewes jail. But that was not his offence; his mortal sin was to have a soldier flogged on a Sunday at a church parade, which was what the Motion was about. Flogging was abolished by Sir George Osborne Morgan, the Liberal Member of Parliament for Wrexham—which has already had a mention and is of...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (23 Nov 2017)

John Healey: ..., funding R&D, science and innovation, and boosting investment. The Government have been in power for seven years, and it is clear that many of the problems have got a great deal worse during that time. It is also clear that George Osborne got it wrong. What he thought was clever politics trumped sound economics. He cut too far, he choked off the recovery and he undermined our...

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Chris Williamson: ...to make the dream of home ownership a reality, but where is the meaningful plan to enable working-class people to buy their own home? Where is the council house building programme? The former Chancellor George Osborne promised that austerity would wipe out the deficit. Well, we have certainly not achieved that, have we? The failure to do so means that austerity has simply amounted to...

Medicines Regulation — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

John Woodcock: ...in Barnard Castle and in vials in Verona. As the Minister is surely aware, there was great celebration in Ulverston, and it was heralded by the then Prime Minister and Chancellor, David Cameron and George Osborne, when David Cameron visited the day after the 2012 Budget and made a Budget roll-out announcement that GSK was going to be investing at least £350 million in a new biopharm...

Backbench Business: World Antibiotics Awareness Week — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (16 Nov 2017)

Steve Brine: ...challenge. Lord O’Neill has been rightly lauded and much mentioned this afternoon for his review of AMR, which was published last year. I agree that it is an excellent and accessible piece of work. The former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, and David Cameron deserve great credit for having the foresight to ask him to do it. His review said that, by 2050, an estimated 10...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (16 Nov 2017)

Helen Goodman: ...they have to produce and scan in. I am not saying that the problems with this system are only administrative because there are fundamental problems with universal credit, the first of which being that George Osborne took £3.5 billion out of the system. The Government refuse to recognise that people need these payments, and because of that refusal, rates are too low, payment gaps too...

English Churches and Cathedrals Sustainability Review - Question (15 Nov 2017)

Lord Cormack: ...and cathedrals of this country, of which Lincoln is a prime example, are among the glories of the western world? Will he recognise that the generosity of the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, in giving £50 million towards the repair and restoration of cathedrals was most welcome but it is a tiny sum of money compared with the importance of the buildings? Can we have...

Hospital Car Parking Charges (Abolition): Tax Avoidance and Evasion (14 Nov 2017)

Andrew Mitchell: ...because, obviously, we would rather those havens took action themselves—to be fair, to some extent they have already started to do so. On the actions taken by the Government, David Cameron and George Osborne led the international effort at the G8 to clamp down on such matters, particularly tax avoidance and evasion. The UK introduced publicly accessible registers of people with...

Scottish Parliament: Homes First (8 Nov 2017)

Kezia Dugdale: ...profit. I am grateful to Andy Wightman for identifying the fact that people using Airbnb and other companies are not paying non-domestic rates. There is a wider issue about tax here, too. It was George Osborne who said that people could earn additional money from Airbnb without paying any income tax—in fact, they can earn up to £7,500 through letting out a room or indeed the...

Scottish Parliament: Health (1 Nov 2017)

Alex Neil: ...spoken to many older GPs who, in years gone by, would not have retired until they were at least 65 but who are now retiring in their early 50s. Why? Because of the tax changes made to their pensions by George Osborne and company, which are leading to a massive reduction in the pension that they can earn over a lifetime of work. That is what GPs are telling me. One of the most massive...
