Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Deemed domicile: income tax and capital gains tax (19 Oct 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: That is clearly a reflection of very severe income inequality. If we focus on income, rather than on tax, which the Minister is trying to pull us towards, and look at the overall impact to the fiscal system, taking into account that fact that working tax credits are being folded into universal credit, the very poorest people in Britain are much worse off now than in previous years.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Museum and gallery exhibitions (19 Oct 2017)

Mel Stride: ...across the United Kingdom, and understand the role they play in local communities. Clause 21 and schedule 6 provide support to those institutions across the country by introducing a corporation tax relief for the production of new exhibitions. The relief will encourage large and small museums and galleries to develop creative new exhibitions and to display their collections to a wider...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Corporate interest restriction (19 Oct 2017)

Stella Creasy: Well, this is why how much tax these companies pay matters. I hate to tell the Minister how to do his job, but I have looked at the PFI and public sector comparator documents used to assess the value for money of the deals, and they explicitly talk about the levels of tax that the companies pay and, indeed, look at how those would be traded off against the cost of borrowing to the public...

Grenfell Tower: Business of the House (19 Oct 2017)

Andrea Leadsom: ..., as you pointed out yourself. However, I assure all Members on both sides of the House that the Government are listening and have been listening. As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions said yesterday, and as was reiterated by the Prime Minister in Prime Minister’s questions, the DWP, as a result of issues raised in the House, has looked again at charges...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Universal Credit (19 Oct 2017)

Baroness Buscombe: Universal Credit is transforming lives across the country. People on Universal Credit put more effort into finding work and move into work faster. Record numbers of people are in work, unemployment is at a record low and once it is fully rolled out, Universal Credit will boost employment by around 250,000. The Government recognises that high childcare costs can affect decisions to take up...

Universal Credit Roll-Out (18 Oct 2017)

Damian Hinds: Of course I gave way to the right hon. Gentleman, who is the Chair of the Work and Pensions Committee. To respond to his question, of course we do not expect that to happen. What universal credit does is make it more straightforward for people to go into work at all times of the year. Fundamentally, we are not looking at a great acceleration in the roll-out. I will be happy to follow up with...

Taxes on Small Businesses — [Ms Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Robert Courts: ...launched the West Oxfordshire Business Awards, at which I saw some fantastic examples of such businesses. They make the importance of small business crystal clear.

Friend about this Conservative Government’s attitude to support for small businesses and the low-tax economy they have...

Social Security Support for Kinship Carers (18 Oct 2017)

Caroline Dinenage: ...this important debate on social security support for kinship carers. She has raised a number of important issues and I am glad that she has taken the opportunity to highlight the invaluable work that kinship carers do. They truly are the unsung heroes, stepping in and offering care to children when they most need it. Let me start by assuring the hon. Lady that the Government acknowledge...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Trading and property allowances (17 Oct 2017)

Peter Dowd: ...especially in relation to our amendment. The potential problems might be still bigger in the case of property income where the new relief interacts with existing schemes such as rent-a-room relief. Taxpayers will need to work out which relief applies before determining whether and how they need to make a self-assessment return. Although I am confident that the Minister is genuine in his...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Pre-school Education: Finance (17 Oct 2017)

Robert Goodwill: in Parliamentary Question 49012, refers to the expected annual spend on childcare by 2020. It includes funding for the free early years entitlements as well as childcare subsidies such as Tax Free Childcare and the childcare element of Working Tax Credit.

Free Childcare — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (12 Oct 2017)

Robert Goodwill: ...hon. Members present join me in acknowledging that, for many families with young children, childcare is not just an issue, but the issue. In many cases, the costs of childcare are a huge barrier to work, particularly for those in lower-paid jobs. Some parents still spend over a third of their take-home pay on childcare—and when I say childcare, I mean good-quality early years...

Future of Work - Motion to Take Note (12 Oct 2017)

Lord Haskel: ...time that new technology would create. However, the conclusion we have to come to is that its effect has not been uniformly beneficial. Some of us have benefited but it has also helped create working poverty. Many of the 8.3 million people who, according to the Money Advice Service, have problem debts are in work. Yes, there is nearly full employment but it has not been reflected in our...

International Trade: Foreign Direct Investment (12 Oct 2017)

Mark Garnier: I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the fact that we now have record numbers of people in work, record employment and record low unemployment. None the less, he raises an important point on the relationship between this Department and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. It is absolutely the case that in creating a pitch book for the UK, we must offer a number of...

Advice Services (Nottingham) — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

Alex Norris: not do that. There is a struggle meeting the demand, because of a lack of information. Clearer advice, more consistency and easier access to information would reduce confusion, and reduce the front-door work they have to do to manage expectations and guide people where to go. That would free up more time, money and effort to work on the core cases. Secondly, funding is a persistent...
