Finance Bill — Clause 89 — Report on the Implications for the Tax System of Withdrawal From the European Union — 19 Nov 2018 at 22:15

The majority of MPs voted not to require a report on the outcomes of the negotiations on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union leading to the need to amend tax legislation, the fiscal and economic impact of those negotiations and amendments, and comparing the situation with that of an agreement on a negotiated withdrawal agreement and a framework for a future relationship with the European Union.

MPs were considering the Finance Bill[1]

The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • page 66, line 30, at end insert—

‘(1A) The Chancellor of the Exchequer must, no later than a week after the passing of this Act and before exercising the power in subsection (1), lay before the House of Commons a review of the following matters—

  • (a) the fiscal and economic effects of the exercise of those powers and of the outcome of negotiations for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union giving rise to their exercise;
  • (b) a comparison of those fiscal and economic effects with the effects if a negotiated withdrawal agreement and a framework for a future relationship with the EU had been agreed to;
  • (c) any differences in the exercise of those powers in respect of—
  • (i) Great Britain, and
  • (ii) Northern Ireland;
  • (d) any differential effects in relation to the matters specified in paragraphs (a) and (b) in relation between—
  • (i) Great Britain, and
  • (ii) Northern Ireland.”

Had it not been rejected this amendment would have impacted clause 89[2] of the Bill which empowered the treasury to make amendments to tax legislation in consequence of the United Kingdom withdrawing from the European Union.
