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.

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.

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.

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?

Mel Stride: ...17 and schedule 3 introduce two new tax allowances so that, from April 2017, individuals with gross trading or property income below £1,000 no longer have to declare or pay tax on that income.

Channel 4 (Relocation) (17 Oct 2017)

Jack Brereton: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require Channel 4 to relocate its headquarters outside London; and for connected purposes. Channel 4 is a publicly owned broadcaster and has undoubtedly made a huge contribution to British broadcasting. I am in no doubt that many Members on both sides have enjoyed watching the hours of quality broadcasting, from “Countdown”...

All water companies have put in place social tariffs that provide a...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: ..., I shall reply for the Government to this excellent debate. I shall try to answer the points raised, unconventional as that might seem. The subject of the debate could not be more important. The digital revolution is one of the biggest things happening to this country and the world. Indeed, I think the digital revolution as a whole is bigger than Brexit. The right hon. Member for East...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Oct 2017)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, this has been a lengthy but excellent debate. I very much welcome the broad support from across the House for the Bill’s objectives; namely, that we have a data protection framework that is fit for the digital age, supports the needs of businesses, law enforcement agencies and other public sector bodies, and—as the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy, said—safeguards the...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 Oct 2017)

Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho: ...debate, in which we are probably looking at the consequences of the work that she started all those years ago.

This Bill is intended to, “ensure that our data protection...

Leaving the EU: Consumer Protection — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (10 Oct 2017)

Margot James: ...it to secure the best outcomes and to maintain strong consumer protections. As hon. Members have made clear, consumers are crucial for UK prosperity.

In 2016, 83% of UK consumers used the internet to order goods or services, and 23% used it to order goods or services from another EU country. Engaged, confident consumers...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill - Second Reading (9 Oct 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: My Lords, I am very pleased to be able to assist my noble friend Lord Bourne in moving the Second Reading of this short but vital Bill.

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day) (13 Sep 2017)

Lord Young of Cookham: ...the evidence the noble Earl referred to, since then they have changed their view. As for regulatory arbitrage, it should not mean that a firm can evade regulation by moving across the border. The Bill gives the Treasury a power to define when a person should be treated as carrying on claims management activity in England and Wales, which gives government the flexibility to adapt the...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Stephen Barclay: The debate has been wide-ranging, covering virtually every aspect of the Bill. That is right and proper for a Bill of such importance. We have heard a number of impressive contributions, including two maiden speeches. The hon. Member for Liverpool, Walton (Dan Carden) made a powerful and assured maiden speech in which he rightly talked about the cultural richness of Liverpool. His reference...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Craig Mackinlay: ...route. People recognise that the situation has perhaps been too good for too long and that things now have to change, but I am concerned that it did not take very long for the allowance to be reduced from £5,000 to £2,000. I realise that much of the Finance Bill—the provisions amount to some 300 pages— concerns the corporation tax loss regime and the restriction of...

Scottish Parliament: Common Agricultural Policy (12 Sep 2017)

Fergus Ewing: ...more concerning is that agriculture policy, which has hitherto been devolved to the Scottish Parliament, is at risk of being reassimilated by the UK Government through the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. Despite all that, my role as cabinet secretary remains clear. I will continue to work to ensure that our eligible rural businesses that apply for funding can be paid in full and on time....
