Wales Bill — Clause 6 — Report on Benefits of Symmetry Between Scottish and Welsh Devolved Tax Systems — 6 May 2014 at 18:00

George Osborne MP, Tatton did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted against requiring the chancellor to review the benefits of having similar devolved tax schemes in Wales and Scotland if further tax raising powers were to be devolved to those countries.

MPs were considering the Wales Bill[1]. The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment proposed: 40, page 7, line 13, at end insert—
  • ‘(10) In the event that the power to add new devolved taxes under Section 116C, or the power to add new devolved taxes under Section 80B of the Scotland Act 1998 is used, the Chancellor of the Exchequer must undertake a review of the benefits of symmetry in the devolution of taxes between Wales and Scotland.’.

Had the amendment not been rejected the above text would have been added to clause 6 of the Bill[2].
