Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (15 Nov 2017)

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, it has been a short debate—I am beginning to think that debates are in inverse size to a Bill, as is perhaps true in this case—but a fascinating one, and I am glad to be the first of the wind-up speakers. When the Minister opened this discussion of the Bill, he concentrated first on praising the Government for their action on tax avoidance. If he feels that action has...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (13 Nov 2017)

Lord Clement-Jones: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson, has raised some important points, which refer back to our labour over the Digital Economy Bill.

As I recall, the Government’s point was...

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...the level of safety online for all users, as set out in the internet safety strategy.

Sexual Harassment and Violence in Schools (2 Nov 2017)

Mims Davies: ...opportunity to make some positive steps. For me, this debate is the start of a very long journey, and I agree with my right hon. Friend about the importance of relationship, sex and online education. During my work on the Digital Economy Bill, I was absolutely staggered by the amount of pornography our youngsters are able to get hold of at the touch of a button. From nudes, to sexting, to...

Backbench Business: HMRC Closures — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (2 Nov 2017)

Luke Graham: ...East (Stuart C. McDonald) on securing this important debate.

Finance Bill: Trades and property businesses: calculation of profits (31 Oct 2017)

Peter Dowd: The Finance Bill that is before the House is nothing short of a wasted opportunity. It is indicative of a Government who wish to serve the interests of a wealthy few at the expense of the many. That is a fact. Rather than introducing measures to bolster people in their daily lives, such as sensible proposals on investment, fair taxation, raising the UK’s woeful productivity and...

Lord Patel: ...by the Wellcome Trust, the MRC, Cancer Research UK, the AMRC, the Sanger Institute, the Academy of Medical Sciences, the ESRC and many others.

I declare an interest: I am a fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences...

Lord Clement-Jones: ..., retail, health, information technology and financial services in particular—that the free flow of data between ourselves and the EU continues post Brexit with minimum disruption.

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

Peter Dowd: ...data from third parties. In the Finance Acts of 2011, 2013 and 2016, the powers were extended to merchant acquirers and in 2016, to collect bulk data from providers of electronic stored-value payment services, also known as digital wallet transactions.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Darren Jones: I draw the attention of the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I welcome the Bill and I welcome the Government’s decision to end the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030, but it is clear that that aim will be successful only when consumers can afford electric vehicles and when charging infrastructure is readily available. On affordability, I...

European Council - Statement (23 Oct 2017)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: .... It serves to remind us how interlinked with the EU we are on so many issues, as she outlined. It is not just about having common interests; we are co-dependent on issues that affect not just our economy, but our safety, security and well-being as a nation. We also add our appreciation for the work of the Royal Navy for intercepting criminals involved in people trafficking and smuggling,...

Peter Dowd: ..., the Atkinson, the Lady Lever, the Merseyside Maritime Museum, the World Museum, the International Slavery Museum, the Beatles museum—the list goes on.

Broadly speaking, £1 in every £1,000 in the...

Fuel Poverty - Question (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Prior of Brampton: ...-poor homes within bands E, F and G than there were in 2010, so there are signs that targeting the energy company obligation more specifically at lower-income families is having an effect.

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

Mel Stride: ...colleagues who chose not to be. I think that says a great deal. The hon. Gentleman referred to the chaos presided over by the Government. I am afraid I simply do not recognise that suggestion. The economy has been growing for the past four years. We have more people in employment than at any time in our history, we have the lowest level of unemployment since 1975 and we have slashed the...

Bills Presented: Workers (Definition and Rights) (18 Oct 2017)

Chris Stephens: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the definition of worker; to make provision about workers’ rights; and for connected purposes. My last ten-minute rule motion, on free telephone calls to Department for Work and Pensions helplines, has today been made Government policy, so it is appropriate that I ask leave to bring in a Bill to define the status of workers...

Lord Lansley: ...to the Enterprise Act on the public interest intervention, will they also make progress on updating the public interest test on media plurality, which was foreshadowed in the debate here on the Digital Economy Bill in the last Session?
