Finance (No. 2) Bill — Repeals — 1 Jul 1998

Not amended (in the Committee) and as amended (in the Standing Committee), further considered.

I beg to move amendment No. 48, in page 3, line 43, leave out £0.4499 and insert £0.4358'.

It was noted at the time of the Budget that the Government were using road fuel tax simply as a way of raising extra revenue without any genuine environmental reasons. To do that, they increased the annual escalator, or rate of increase, to at least 6 per cent. above the rate of inflation. By bringing forward the increases by the earlier dates of their Budgets, the Government have further added to the burdens on the motorist. The House of Commons Library has confirmed that at the present rate an extra £9 billion will be extracted from motorists over the life of the Parliament. That is over and above the inherited pattern of increases from the previous Government.

Most disturbing, the Government have singled out diesel for especially high increases. Diesel is the fuel of industry, so increasing the fuel tax in the way proposed is inflationary because the price of all goods is affected. It is also uncompetitive because it will widen the gap with the continent. It is anti-environmental because firms, especially small ones, will be less able to invest in new engines and fuel monitoring systems. After those two increases, which have already taken effect, under this Government, diesel in the United Kingdom is 70 per cent. more expensive than in the European Union on average. That gap is set to widen. The beneficiaries will be foreign haulage firms whose lorries will arrive in this country with cheap fuel in their tanks and take business from British haulage firms and jobs from British truck drivers. Another beneficiary will be the French Treasury, because British lorries travelling to the continent will fill their tanks with cheap French diesel.

The amendment cuts the increase to the rate that applied until the election. We want the Government to revert to the previous increase rate, so that the £9 billion hit on British motorists will disappear. The Government's policy is short-sighted, damaging to employment and bad for business, and we should like them, even at this late stage, to change it.

Mr. Christopher Leslie (Shipley):

I listened with interest to the right hon. Member for Wells(Mr. Heathcoat-Amory). I, too, consulted the Library and was told that the financial implications of his amendment would be £180 million-plus a year, especially for1999-2000--indexed, of course.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn .

I beg to move amendment No. 19, in page 5, leave out lines 35 to 40 and insert--


Amendment agreed to .

Amendments made: No. 1, in page 26, line 25, leave out from 'used' to end of line 26 and insert

'in a designated country or territory either for medical purposes or by an educational establishment in that country or territory.'.

No. 2, in page 27, line 35, leave out 'and'.

No. 3, in page 27, line 37, at end insert


"medical purposes" includes medical research and the promotion of health.'.-- [Dawn Primarolo.]

I beg to move amendment No. 15, in page 35, line 27, leave out 'or securities'.

This is a very simple amendment, the purpose of which is to remove from clause 51 two unnecessary words. Under the clause, employees who receive shares that subsequently convert to shares of another class pay income tax on the value of the new class of shares, less anything that they paid when they first received the shares. The amendment will simply ensure that employees who receive such shares are fairly taxed and closes a potential tax avoidance opportunity.

Convertible securities do not present the same problems and are therefore excluded from the scope of the clause. However, there is a reference to convertible shares or securities in one subsection of the clause. Although the reference to securities does not in any way change the effect of the clause, it might lead to some confusion. We have therefore decided to remove the two unnecessary words.

Amendment agreed to.
