Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that there is something archaic in people being able to pass down their tax advantages to their children in that way? The average taxpayer on pay-as-you-earn has no chance of having access to such measures, and they certainly cannot pass on their status to their children or get any advantage for their children in the tax system.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that the privileged individuals are also the ones who will have choices come Brexit? If the Government get Brexit wrong for the economy of this country, the average person will not be able to move their wealth or savings offshore, so they will be the ones who suffer. The people my hon. Friend is referring to, however, will be able to move their capital anywhere in...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Government’s fixation with corporation tax being as low as possible, and the belief that somehow that will give us a competitive advantage, is blown out of the water by the very successful economies, such as Germany and others, that have corporation tax rates a lot higher than those in the UK?

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: There aren’t any.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: I begin by welcoming you to the Chair, Madam Deputy Speaker. I know that you were in the Chair before the recess, but it is the first time that I have had the honour of speaking when you are in the Chair and I wish you all the best in the coming years. I would like to speak rubbish—[Interruption.] Somebody asks, “What’s new?” I could not possibly comment on my...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: The problem is not only that the hon. Gentleman’s constituents have to live next door to those illegal dumps, but that there is the expense of clearing them up, which falls back on the taxpayer. There is another widespread scam. This morning I tried to find the figure for the number of fires at waste transfer stations, but I could not. For the uninitiated, I will explain. Having been a...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: Yes, I do, but the problem is that local authority budgets are under tremendous pressure, so they are going for the cheapest price. If somebody goes to them and says, “I can get rid of your waste for less”, what are they going to do? One council in Wales was trucking its waste up to the north-east. Can someone tell me, if the operator was paying the proper amount of landfill tax,...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: I think even the best plastic surgeon would struggle with me. The question is whether VAT is payable on cosmetic procedures. The problem is that such procedures vary from facelifts and tummy tucks to boob jobs, fillers and that side of the industry. I came to the issue through a constituent. I will not talk about the regulation, because that does not apply to the taxation of cosmetic surgery,...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: Like the right hon. Lady, I think that the digital movement is an improvement, but has she come across examples—I have one in my constituency—of when there is a problem and small businesses particularly need to speak to somebody? Following the closure of tax offices, it takes a long time before one is actually able to speak to someone on the phone. Although the digital movement...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: Can I ask why?

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: Is the Minister saying that those proposals will actually come forward? I will address this in my speech, but I have been in discussion with HMRC’s policy department, which has given certain commitments to making some serious changes in order to collect more landfill tax and stop avoidance.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: As the Minister knows, HMRC’s landfill tax figures show a £150 million tax gap. Will the future proposals be published for further reaction and consultation? What I hear from the industry is that some of the proposals it wants are being ignored by HMRC.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I thought this debate was about the Government’s proposals. The Minister, following a set-up question from a Back Bencher, is now talking about what proposals Labour might have. Is that in order? Should we not be sticking to the—

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: It is a set-up—

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: I wish to make a point about tax avoidance and fraud. When it comes to landfill tax, will that extend to companies or public organisations which know that the price they are paying for the collection of their waste cannot possibly include the disposal rates of landfill tax? Or will it cover those accountants and others who are involved in a landfill tax company and know what is actually going...

National Shipbuilding Strategy (6 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: As chair of the all-party group on shipbuilding, I welcome these orders for the UK shipbuilding industry, but may I ask the Secretary of State about two fundamental points? First, on military capability, will the Type 31 add to our defence capability? Will it be able to fulfil our full NATO maritime standing commitments? So far little has been said about its anti-submarine or war-fighting...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ministry of Defence: Mental Health Services (6 Sep 2017)

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Plastic Surgery: VAT (5 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether HM Revenue and Customs plans to conduct a review of VAT charges on cosmetic surgeries; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Convention On the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage (5 Sep 2017)

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, with reference to Section 3.3 of the Culture White Paper, published in March 2016, if she will provide a timetable on the decision to ratify the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.
