Did you mean said david?
Sajid Javid: As I said, unions representing two thirds of union members have accepted our proposed schemes, and the vast majority of unions have taken a very constructive view.
Sajid Javid: In the example that the hon. Gentleman gave, HMRC would clearly use other available information and be guided by the Charity Commission. HMRC will use a broad set of information when applying this clause.
Sajid Javid: I am sure that my hon. Friend has heard and duly noted the hon. Gentleman’s comments.
Sajid Javid: I confirm that the power can be used only to change the £20 limit, not the form of the donation. I will not discuss the question of the form of donation; we have discussed it before.
Sajid Javid: If it is okay with the hon. Lady, I will happily come back to her to clarify that.
Sajid Javid: I am happy to write to the Charity Commission on the hon. Gentleman’s behalf. I ask the hon. Gentleman to withdraw his amendment.
Sajid Javid: I reassure the hon. Gentleman that the Government have no plan to make changes to the scheme.

Sajid Javid: I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on 25 October 2012, Official Report, column 1013W.
Sajid Javid: During 2011-12 the Department spent £41,753 on newspapers, periodicals and trade publications.
Sajid Javid: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. I am pleased to hear that she has been glued to her television set watching this debate. I take her point about the Caribbean. Several hon. Members have made a similar point, and I have listened carefully.
Sajid Javid: The answer to the number of civil servants from the Treasury on secondment to companies in the UK is five or below. It is the Treasury's policy for reasons of confidentiality not to release full details relating to numbers of staff fewer than five where to do so might lead to the identification of individual cases.
Resolved, That, subject to the discretion of the Chairman, any written evidence received by the Committee shall be reported to the House for publication.—(Sajid Javid.) Written evidence to be reported to the House PSP 01 British Medical Association PSP 04 GMB PSP 08 Rt Hon. Lord Hutton of Furness
Ordered, That further consideration be now adjourned. —(Sajid Javid.)
Sajid Javid: I thank the hon. Lady for her specific question on the equalities impact assessment, but I do not know the answer immediately. I believe that it is the case that the Treasury will act alone, because that is how it is set out. If she will allow me, I will clarify that in more detail later.

Sajid Javid: I thank the hon. Lady for her comments. If I heard her correctly, I believe that she said “skedule” rather than “schedule”, and I am glad that the hon. Member for Nottingham East was not here to hear it. I am not sure whether Hansard reports that.
Sajid Javid: I beg to move amendment 2, in clause 4, page 2, line 38, at end insert— ‘( ) Subsection (1) does not apply to a scheme under section 1 which is an injury or compensation scheme.’.
Sajid Javid: The hon. Gentleman probably already knows this, but for the sake of clarity, if each individual scheme wants to appoint an independent board member, there is nothing to stop them from doing so.
Amendment made: 7, in clause 6, page 4, line 8, at end insert— ‘( ) This section does not apply to a scheme under section 1 which is an injury or compensation scheme’.—(Sajid Javid.)
