Poverty - Motion to Take Note (14 Jul 2016)

Lord Kirkwood of Kirkhope: ...about it, but 15% to 20% of our population experience poverty and we should face up to that more directly. I ask the noble Lord to bear in mind, in the course of his developing thinking, that we need a proper network of social protection across the United Kingdom. I think he accepted that when he said that, when people are in need, have no options and are inescapably caught in household...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Poverty (13 Jul 2016)

Damian Hinds: Work is the best route out of poverty, which is why this Government is focused on getting people into employment. Since 2010, 2.5 million more people are in work and average household incomes are at a record high. We are reforming the tax and benefit system to ensure work will always pay more than a life on benefits. That is why we are raising the tax-free personal allowance to ú11,500...

Online Abuse: Creative Industries (7 Jul 2016)

Ed Vaizey: ...West (Sir David Amess). I was about to say that he was an “unlikely champion” of the arts, but that would be unfair. At Prime Minister’s Questions yesterday, he commended Southend yet again. I have worked out why. When I was drinking in a pub with Tracey Emin a few weeks ago—[Interruption.] Did I say Tracey Emin? The pub landlady came out and told me what a huge fan...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Bilimoria: ...here. How dare people even think of sending these people back? These are people who left their families a thousand miles away, who came here not knowing the language to a strange culture and made friends, worked hard, paid taxes, put in five times more than they took out and contributed to our economy. How ungrateful can we be? We should be grateful for the efforts that they have put in....

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Inheritance tax: increased nil-rate band (5 Jul 2016)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: As we have heard from the Minister, clause 82 and schedule 15 provide that the inheritance tax transferrable main residence nil-rate band will apply to an estate even when somebody downsizes.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Insurance companies carrying on long-term business (5 Jul 2016)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: I will be brief. The provision raises some seemingly technical questions on the taxation of loan relationships and derivatives—concepts that are closely linked in tax law. As with the other clauses, it requires deeper thought as the UK prepares to leave the EU. What precise changes, which HMRC has presumably observed in the financial markets, have prompted the reforms proposed in clause...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Power to make regulations about the taxation of securitisation companies (5 Jul 2016)

David Gauke: Clause 61 will make a simple technical change to widen the scope of the power to make regulations about the taxation of securitisation companies included in the Corporation Tax Act 2010. It will enable the Government to make changes in regulations to remove uncertainty over the tax treatment of what are referred to as residual payments in the securitisation sector. That uncertainty generates...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Hybrid and other mismatches (5 Jul 2016)

Rebecca Long-Bailey: ...I made about clause 61 broadly apply to this clause. The United Kingdom finds itself occupying a new place in the world and the provisions in the clause relate to the difficult business of double tax treaties. Such treaties currently need to be negotiated on a bilateral basis with countries that are outside large trading blocs such as the EU. They are therefore a model for the sort of...
