To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Randerson on 1 July (WA 192-3), whether they will now answer the question as to whether they have received any request from the Northern Ireland Executive for the devolution of any fiscal powers, and, if so, which powers.

The Northern Ireland Executive has sought the devolution of powers relating to rates of Corporation Tax. The Government has not received any requests from the Executive for devolution of any other fiscal powers since Air Passenger Duty for certain categories of flight was devolved at their request. However, the package agreed on 14 June, Building a Prosperous and United Community, sets out a process whereby the devolution of further fiscal powers can be considered and recommendations put to UK Government and Northern Ireland Executive Ministers by Autumn 2014.
