Finance (No. 2) Bill — 18 Apr 2017 at 21:19
John Baron MP, Basildon and Billericay did not vote.
“this House declines to give the Finance (No. 2) Bill a Second Reading because it derives from the 2017 Budget which confirmed the continuation of austerity, it fails to provide the necessary stimulus to compensate for the economic impact of Brexit, it fails to address the inequity of VAT being charged on the Scottish Police Authority and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, it fails to provide concrete measures to support the oil and gas industry, it increases Insurance Premium Tax above the level of inflation, it increases duty on Scotch whisky, and it is a wholly inadequate response to the economic challenges being faced by Scotland and the UK.”
“There is no meaningful basis for predicting the precise end-point of the negotiations as the basis for our forecast.”
“In the long run, reduced trade lowers productivity”-
“increases the cost of Brexit to a loss of between 6.5% and 9.5% of GDP.”
“Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down”,
