Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Industry (Government Support) (16 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: Interest rates are going down in the market because people can see a Government who are taking action and getting to grips with our problems, who have already made in-year cuts and who will finally put this country back on the path to fiscal sanity. That is exactly why interest rates are going down, which is a commendation on the action that the Government have taken so far. The point that I...

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Industry (Government Support) (16 Jun 2010)

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Industry (Government Support) (16 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: Does the hon. Lady agree that there is a short-term populism that pushes us towards more Government intervention? What we need is a thriving and effective private enterprise to lift our economies up and through to better times-not my words but those of Tony Blair.

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Jun 2010)

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: Can the Prime Minister confirm that, until yesterday's Budget, the benefits for some of the poorest in society were to be increased at a rate less than inflation, and therefore cut in real terms?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Broadband (Rural Areas) (24 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: I welcome the Secretary of State and her team to the Front Bench. I also welcome what she said about rural broadband. In counties such as Suffolk, it is an important part of our modern infrastructure. The people of Suffolk are enterprising and innovative, and I know that they too will warmly welcome what the Secretary of State has said. However, will she tell us more about the importance of...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Capital Gains Tax (Rates) (24 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that yesterday in the Chamber the shadow Chancellor argued that the problem with Greece, and one of the reasons for what happened there, was that the authorities did not act quickly enough? Does he share my surprise that the shadow Chancellor can combine that with an argument for not acting now here?

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Capital Gains Tax (Rates) (24 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: I can certainly be more proud of having been an adviser to the current Chancellor than if I had been an adviser to the one who said that he had abolished boom and bust. Following on from the right hon. Gentleman's misleading use of statistics, which are described by the OBR on page 93 of the Red Book as "misleading", does he agree with me that the IFS said that when all the Budget measures...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Capital Gains Tax (Rates) (24 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: Does my hon. Friend share my surprise that Opposition Members can possibly comment on the fairness of the Budget, given that under the Budget as a whole the richest will pay the most and the poorest will not, and that when they were in office, they doubled the tax of the lowest-paid in this country?

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Capital Gains Tax (Rates) (24 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way in his an extremely thoughtful speech. Does he not agree that we have to deal with these huge problems because of the structural deficit that we had going into the recession? Does he agree with this quotation: "Public finances must be sustainable over the long term...If they are not, the poor, the elderly, and those on fixed incomes who depend most on...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Capital Gains Tax (Rates) (24 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: It is an honour to be able to speak in this debate on what is, by common recognition, a Budget of historic proportions. After the Budget, I bumped into a group of former civil servants who were reminiscing about huge Budgets of the past and where this one came. They talked about the 1981 Budget that has been much discussed in this debate, and the 1970 Budget by Iain Macleod that was never...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Capital Gains Tax (Rates) (24 Jun 2010)

Matthew Hancock: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Labour party's views tend to be based on misrepresentations? For instance, I think that the shadow Minister said that according to the Office for Budget Responsibility on almost every measure things were better, but on the crucial measure of the size of the structural deficit, which is the measure that will not come back with economic growth, things are...
