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...

Finance Bill: Digital reporting and record-keeping for income tax etc (31 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: ...Deputy Speaker—[Interruption.] That is certainly very spooky. As I said, there are ghosts that haunt our politics, so I start my speech by putting on record my thanks to the former Member for Tatton, George Osborne, for inspiring new clause 2. Indeed, I noted that the Minister referred to his work, too. These were the words of the former Member for Tatton in 2015 when the then...

Financial Guidance and Claims Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (31 Oct 2017)

Lord Deben: ...interests, particularly as chairman of the Personal Investment Management & Financial Advice Association. It is very important to take this amendment seriously because of the reforms brought in by George Osborne. There are two halves to giving people freedom: one is giving the freedom and the other is making sure that they have access to the best information in order to make the best...

Taxation: Beer and Pubs — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (31 Oct 2017)

Toby Perkins: ...with what the hon. Member for Dudley South said, because this is a story that I like to tell. The truth of the matter is that the Chancellor who raised most through the beer duty escalator was not Ed Balls but George Osborne. George Osborne took the escalator that Ed Balls had introduced in 2008 and 2009 and escalated it again in 2010, again in 2011 and again in 2012. I support the fact...

Proportional Representation — [James Gray in the Chair] (30 Oct 2017)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...it is getting more and more absurd. For instance, a series of interesting Budget proposals have been leaked from the Cabinet. All those proposals would breach the fiscal responsibility charter of the former Chancellor George Osborne, which many Conservatives would have voted for. It was obviously nonsense, but it was trapped in that two-party system that is propelled by the electoral...

Unpaid Work Experience (Prohibition) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Oct 2017)

Baroness Stedman-Scott: ...was one—and he was able to really add value to that place of work. He was then taught to drive, and the boss paid for it. So those were all great things. He was experiencing work, but he was also experiencing respect and decency, which so many people have spoken about today. When I introduced the boss and the young lad to the Chancellor, George Osborne, he was asked whether he...

Operation Stack/Lorry Parking in Kent (25 Oct 2017)

Damian Collins: ...tunnel and directly accessible from the motorway network in order not to disturb other roads, and it needs to be delivered at pace. In the 2015 autumn statement, the then Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, committed the Government to a £250 million investment that would deliver that solution. The idea was that it would be delivered at pace, and it should have been...

Scottish Parliament: Withdrawal from the European Union (Negotiations) (25 Oct 2017)

Ross Greer: ...Her cack-handed policies, which have targeted everyone, ranged from turning doctors and nurses into immigration enforcers to sending racist “Go home” vans to areas with high ethnic minority populations. Theresa May’s former colleague, George Osborne, revealed that she single-handedly blocked a guarantee for EU citizens in the immediate aftermath of the Brexit vote. I have...

Backbench Business: Defence Capability — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Bernard Jenkin: ...one year ahead, with the consequences of these cuts. Let us look back over the last seven years. The coalition Government inherited a black hole in the defence budget of £35 billion. Coupled with George Osborne’s 8% defence cash cut to the headline figure, that meant that we reached 2015 already having suffered a real-terms cut of 17% in the defence budget, regardless of the...

Backbench Business: Carbon Capture and Storage — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (19 Oct 2017)

Drew Hendry: .... Peterhead was set and ready to accept a £1 billion contract and expected 600 jobs. I would therefore caution the hon. Gentleman about getting too excited about any promises, because by axing that project at the 11th hour, George Osborne committed what can only be described as a betrayal of the people in Peterhead. Even now, the commitment to CCS, welcome as this small U-turn is, is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bridge Tolls (19 Oct 2017)

Faisal Rashid: ...Gateway bridge, although the previous Runcorn bridge was toll-free and tolls are being scrapped across the whole United Kingdom. Will he honour the commitment made in 2015 by the former Chancellor, George Osborne, that Warrington residents would be exempt from these tolls? Although the Minister has previously rejected this offer, will he now agree to meet me and my constituents?

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Stephen Timms: ...apparent reason. In other words, there is growing evidence that the IT for delivering UC is not working as it should. The position was well summed up by the current Secretary of State’s former boss, George Osborne, in his Evening Standard editorial last Thursday, where he wrote of the “sorry history of procuring an IT system for the new universal credit”. A sorry history...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2017)

Jeremy Corbyn: It is very interesting that the Prime Minister talks about what happened 10 years ago. Her former friend George Osborne said earlier this week: “did Gordon Brown cause the sub-prime crisis in America? No.” He went on to say that “broadly speaking” the Government “did what was necessary in a very difficult situation”. Under this Prime Minister, we have a...

Housing: Availability and Affordability - Motion to Take Note (12 Oct 2017)

Viscount Hanworth: ...to the difficulties of first-time buyers, in the face of the scarcity of accommodation and exorbitant house prices, has been to establish the Help to Buy scheme, in pursuit of the Thatcherite nostrum. In 2013, George Osborne set aside £7 billion for this purpose and, on the eve of the recent Conservative Party conference, a further £10 billion was promised. It is extraordinarily...

Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Valerie Vaz: ...health issues, particularly for those in years 6 and 7 who are making the transition to senior school, and that message has already been taken out to six primary schools. Sunday is the last day for the old £1 coin, and David Pearce, a pupil at Queen Mary’s, was the winner of the contest to design the new coin. The winner was chosen by George Osborne, who in a nice move actually...
