Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Personal Independence Payment (26 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many people who received the higher rate of the mobility component of disability living allowance have been assessed for personal independence payment (PIP) and not been awarded the enhanced mobility rate of PIP.

Bill Presented: Clause 6 — Charge for financial year 2016 (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: It is a pleasure to see you back in the Chair, Mr Hood. I wish to talk particularly about the rural economy and the opportunities that the Government might be missing, given the importance of small and medium-sized enterprises to rural economies. Given that this may be my last contribution in this Parliament, I also want to reflect briefly on the political situation in Scotland. We have had...

Bill Presented: Clause 6 — Charge for financial year 2016 (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: It is an honour to intervene in what might be the hon. Gentleman’s last speech in this place. Has he considered the impact on the rural economy, which suffered particularly harshly during the recession? The recovery there is very fragile and corporation tax cuts will not help rural communities. Does he not think that this could be the wrong cause?

Bill Presented: Clause 6 — Charge for financial year 2016 (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is important that we assess what the larger corporations do with their extra income as compared with small businesses? Small businesses in my constituency are more likely to create jobs, while larger companies are more likely to give the money to their shareholders.

Bill Presented: Clause 6 — Charge for financial year 2016 (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: rose—

Bill Presented: Clause 6 — Charge for financial year 2016 (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: I am grateful to my hon. Friend; I was enjoying her contribution so much that I was going to desist. Does she agree that in the Consumer Rights Bill the Government missed an opportunity to give small businesses consumer rights, and that is often leaving them open to abuses by larger organisations?

Bill Presented: Clause 1 — Charge and rates for 2015-16 (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: rose—

Bill Presented: Clause 1 — Charge and rates for 2015-16 (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: I thank the Minister for his generosity in giving way again. The Institute for Fiscal Studies has said that the Government’s plans for tax cuts by 2020 would cost £7.2 billion. Can he tell us where that money would come from?

Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: On that issue, growing a beard is an option for a man, but being unhygienic is not an option for a woman. My local food bank is increasingly having to offer women sanitary products because they simply cannot afford them.

Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: The Chancellor fought incredibly hard in the EU to protect bankers’ bonuses, so can the Minister tell us what efforts the Government have made to have that rule changed?

Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: Given the lack of a response from the Government Benches, may I suggest that seeing the impact of the increase in VAT written down might make it harder for the Tories and the Liberal Democrats to break their promise the second time around?

Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: It is pleasure to speak in this debate—I hope it will have been worth the wait—and to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hood. I hope that we both have the opportunity to repeat the experience after 7 May. I rise to support this excellent improvement to the Bill proposed by my hon. Friends on the Front Bench, because I would like to better understand the impact of the VAT increase in my...

Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: My hon. Friend has been doing this job much longer than me, so I suppose he has earned the right to be more cynical. I am still flush with the newness of this change of role in my life, and I would like to think that that was not the Government’s intention, but I shall bow to his longer service in this place and more expert analysis. It was interesting to hear the Financial Secretary speak...

Bill Presented: Clause 66 — VAT: refunds to certain charities (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: If the Conservatives’ plan was so brilliant, will the Minister explain why, even at the height of the global crash in the UK, under the Labour Government we did not lose our triple A credit rating, but on his watch we did?

Bill Presented: Finance (No. 2) Bill (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: Following on from the previous intervention, in Scotland we are seeing an abuse of apprenticeship payments to young people in the retail sector. There are a lot skills involved in working in retail, but to call three months working in a shop an apprenticeship undervalues them. That does, however, help the Scottish National party to massage the figures.

Bill Presented: Tax Transparency and International Development (25 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require country by country public reporting for all multinational companies; to strengthen controlled foreign company rules and overseas bond rules; to establish a public register of beneficial ownership, including in the Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories; to introduce a penalty regime for the General Anti-Abuse Rule; to...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Syria (18 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: I am sure that the Secretary of State has read the report by the all-party group on protecting children in armed conflict and is considering its recommendations. Given the growing and unprecedented number of childhoods lost though conflict, will she commit to having someone lead on that vital issue within her Department?

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Work Programme: East Lothian (17 Maw 2015)

Fiona O'Donnell: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many former incapacity benefit claimants found fit for work after being reassessed for employment and support allowance between October 2010 and March 2014 have found work as a result of the Work Programme in East Lothian constituency.
