Public Bill Committee: Nuclear Energy (Financing) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 Nov 2021)

Yvonne Fovargue: Order. Mark, I am going to move on. There are two more people, and you have had a long time. I call Kirsty Blackman.

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 77 - Misuse of subsidies (16 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I am sorry to interrupt the prospective Secretary of State mid-flow, but I have a question. Does the clause apply to subsidies below the de minimis threshold?

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 74 - Recovery orders (16 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: It would be useful if the Minister clarified how recovery orders are made public and how we can find that information.

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 71 (16 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I rise to speak to amendment 31 in clause 71, page 40, line 36, leave out ‘one month’ and insert ‘6 months’. This amendment allows CAT referrals a longer period to be made. This is a pretty similar amendment, as it is about extending the length of time in which a challenge can be brought before the CAT. I wholeheartedly agree with what the shadow Minister has just said. If the...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 70 - Review of subsidy decisions (16 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: The Minister has not really answered the key question that would be helpful in order to ensure that interested parties are as broad as the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton and I think it should be. Does a devolved Administration’s interests include indirect interests? Let us say that the Scottish Parliament was to come forward to the CAT and ask for something to be reviewed on the basis...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 68 - Subsidy Advice Unit (16 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: A couple of questions have been raised about this clause. I am not particularly happy with how it works: I think more could have been contained in it. The questions from the hon. Member for Feltham and Heston have shown that there is a lack of clarity on what the subsidy advice unit means and how it will differ from the Office for the Internal Market, for example. The Minister will probably...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 66 - CMA Annual Report (16 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I am a bit confused by the Minister’s comments on paragraph (d). He seemed to suggest that the CMA’s report may not talk about where local authorities’ assessments require improvement. That is slightly concerning because, if a local authority is making an assessment on a subsidy and the assessment requires improvement, who is going to tell it? Who is going to say the assessment requires...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 65 - Monitoring and reporting on subsidy control (16 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: May I ask the Minister—sorry if I missed it—to say explicitly whether he would expect the CMA to consult the devolved Administrations in the preparation of the five-year report?

Social Security (Up-rating of Benefits) Bill: Clause 1 - Up-rating of state pension and certain other benefits following review in tax year 2021-22 (15 Nov 2021)

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 64 - Other exemptions (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I want to raise specific concerns about the first part of this amendment—I am not concerned about the amendment, but I have concerns relating to the first part of it, which is about taking out paragraph (a). Paragraph (a) relates to streamlined subsidy schemes, which were discussed in clause 10. In clause 10, the streamlined subsidy schemes are allowed to be made only by a Minister of the...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 62 - CMA report following post-award referral (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I am baffled by this Government amendment. It seems to be directly opposite to what the Opposition moved. The Opposition were concerned that one of the principles was mentioned in the post-award referrals clause, but the others were not. With amendment 5, the Minister concedes that one of the principles should not be mentioned and is therefore asking for it to be taken out of clause 62 but...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 63 - Referrals in relation to subsidy schemes (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I have a few questions. Are there any circumstances in which a subsidy given under a subsidy scheme could be considered of interest or of particular interest where the scheme itself is not considered of interest or particular interest? If that is the case, is it possible to ensure that a subsidy scheme in which any of the potential subsidies are considered as possibly of interest or...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 60 - Post-award referrals (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: Thank you for chairing this afternoon’s meeting, Mr Sharma. I have a brief comment about the omission of the power set out in amendment 56. I would appreciate it if the Minister could let us know what assessment he has made of its compatibility with the trade and co-operation agreement and the World Trade Organisation rules if the Bill does not contain the power that the Opposition are...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 59 - CMA report following mandatory or voluntary referral (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I have just a brief question. This clause lays out things that reports following mandatory or voluntary referrals “must” include and some things that the reports “may” include. Can the Minister confirm that the reports may also include things not mentioned here and that the additional things that would be included would be at the discretion of the CMA? If it can include only the musts...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 55 - Call-in direction (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I was going to ask a question about this clause, and the Minister has managed to make me even more confused. Subsection (1) states: “A public authority may request a report from the CMA before giving a subsidy, or making a subsidy scheme, of interest.” It does not state that, additionally, any other subsidy may be referred to the CMA under a voluntary referral. It might elsewhere in the...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 56 - Voluntary referral to CMA (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: Let me just imagine that I made an excellent speech. The concerns that I raised a few moments ago still stand. I think there should be more flexibility in the first part so that it is made clear to public authorities that they can refer something should it not fall under the specific definition of “schemes of interest”. I would appreciate it if the Minister considered tabling an amendment...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 54 - Cooling off period following mandatory referral (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I have spent years looking at education reports and care inspectorate reports. There are criteria for giving marks and a particular language is used—something is good, poor or dreadful. Is the Minister expecting that “serious deficiencies” will be used by the CMA in the report? Will it say, “We consider there to be serious deficiencies”, which the Secretary of State would consider...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 52 - Mandatory referral to CMA (4 Nov 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I agree with the hon. Lady. My concern, which I mentioned briefly when talking about the amendment, is that subsection (1) is not flexible enough. It mentions particular interests and “where directed to do so by the Secretary of State”, but I would prefer to see an additional category that says, “other reasons”, with regulation to follow if that is what the Minister suggests. There...
