Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Sovereignty: Scotland ( 5 Tach 2019)

Luke Graham: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, whether his (a) Department and (b) the Electoral Commission has made an estimate of the cost of holding a referendum on Scottish independence in 2020.

Tributes to the Speaker’s Chaplain (31 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: I appreciate the opportunity to pay a tribute to Rose. Like many in this House, I had experiences here that, when the personal combined with the professional, meant that I found myself having what might professionally be called “a bit of a wobble”—I know that many colleagues from my intake have had similar experiences. The one thing I would say about Rose is this: she was there. Her...

Church Commissioners: Digital Technology: New Congregations (31 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Mr Speaker, I should like to pass on my thanks to you, on behalf of Scottish Conservative MPs. You have given us the opportunity to speak so that our constituents know that the Scottish National party is not the only voice for Scotland in this place. It is good for our Parliament, our country and our democracy that all the voices are heard, so I thank you for that. What conversations have...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: My hon. Friend is making a very strong point about taxation returns and the problems in Northern Ireland. Does he agree with me that some of the simplest solutions can be the best? Some of the best tax regimes are in places such as Hong Kong where there are flat taxes, which are simple and elegant. He talked about some of the complications in the US, which has a tax code that runs to some...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: As a result, I found that we were not able to get the level of transparency and speed of information when we were working right across China—certainly in a multinational company with lots of subsidiaries—as quickly as one would hope in the 21st century, although I know that China is leading the way in many technological advances. Some of these walls and barriers can also be seen in the...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: My hon. Friend makes a very good point. The Minister will be well versed in some of the reports and debates on Making Tax Digital. A lot of these barriers were articulated at that time. One key area will be costs. Sometimes the cost of pieces of accounting software is very low, perhaps a couple of hundred pounds or so, but for a small company it is still an additional cost. The other obstacle...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention—I think. As my record will show, I am very much in favour of more international co-operation, and I hope that we will be doing that when we come back. Accounting systems can really help with cross-border trade, from small companies to large multinationals. As I hope I have laid out in this short speech, they have been used in places such as...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: It is a pleasure to have secured this Adjournment debate on the exciting topic of accounting systems in cross-border trade. I know the House is racked with anticipation for this debate, as shown by the packed Benches, so I am looking forward to it. I have to admit that, because of the potential for there being debates on the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill this week, I thought that...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Is the Minister on his feet?

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: I hope it is whisky; we will be here for a while. Accountants can help us with some of our biggest social and environmental challenges. In the current context, with Brexit on the horizon, I thought this debate would be useful, and later in my speech I shall come to the issues relating to trade between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. Let me give a little background on accounting...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: I thank my hon. Friend for his intervention. He is quite right. There is a number of those accounting systems, but there is also a number of other systems and structures in place in Northern Ireland. I have to be honest about this. Although I have engaged with some of his colleagues on this over the past two years, many Members in this House and the broader public are still ignorant of the...

Cross-border Trade and Accounting (30 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: My hon. Friend is almost making me skip over certain parts of my speech, so I appreciate his intervention. He is quite right. One of the key systems that is currently used is the VAT information exchange system. Under the current withdrawal agreement proposals, it will still be open to Northern Ireland. At the moment, I am not sure whether it will be open to other parts of the United Kingdom,...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witnesses (29 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Q My question builds on those of some of my colleagues regarding how children who experience domestic abuse link with potential fostering services, the Department for Work and Pensions, and future education opportunities. Having had a number of constituents and some family go through a similar process, I know that there is a lot of opportunity to fall through gaps. What, in your view, are...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witness (29 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Thank you very much for coming to the Committee today, and for your time. You mentioned that you had communicated with the devolved Administration in Scotland as well. Could you just elaborate on some of the communication you had and on the sharing of best practice, if anyQ ?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witness (29 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Q No, I appreciate that. The section of the Bill on the commissioner’s role talks about the establishment of an advisory board. The Bill mandates that the board must include representatives from voluntary organisations and healthcare professionals from England, but there is nothing about Wales. Given that Wales is a central part of the advisory board, would you like to be on the board?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witness (29 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Q This is important, and I do not want to put you in a constitutional hotspot, but devolved does not mean separate. A lot of the Bill is meant to be set by the UK Parliament. Some Members will push for it to be extended in certain areas to Scotland. As I have experienced with my constituents, domestic abuse in relationships does not respect county or other political boundaries. Do you agree...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witness (29 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Welcome and congratulations. My questions will be a bit about Wales, but also Scotland and Northern Ireland. I do not want to put you in a constitutional hotspot, because most Ministers and MPs could not answer some of these questions, but hopefully they will help to clarify the position and provide a bit of guidance to us. You will be held accountable to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland,...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witness (29 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Q That leads me to my next question. In your experience—obviously, you come from the United States, which is federal system with several different states and lots of different jurisdictions, but they come together as one country—do you find that domestic abuse or relationships stop at certain political jurisdictions?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Domestic Abuse Bill: Examination of Witness (29 Hyd 2019)

Luke Graham: Q You have talked a lot about the mapping exercise that you want to undertake. Do you foresee problems in having a national network, when it is not actually national—it covers England and Wales only, which is not our country but only two parts of it? Do you foresee major problems with that, especially when many victims, as in my constituency, will be flipping between different parts of the...
