Written Answers — HM Treasury: Pensions: Advisory Services (26 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how much funding has been provided to the (a) Pension Advisory Service and (b) Citizens Advice Bureaux for providing the Pension Wise service since the introduction of that service was announced.

Cathy Jamieson: While my hon. Friend is on the point of credit unions, does she support our proposal to increase the levy on payday lenders to support various ethical alternatives, including the expansion of credit unions? I am sure that she will, as she has a great deal of expertise in this matter.

Cathy Jamieson: I wonder whether the Minister heard what I said when I was challenged about whether the shadow Chancellor ought to be in the Chamber. I noted that the Chancellor is not present, and I raised the question of what Conservative Members had done on light-touch regulation. Were they not arguing for it? Can she give me an example from that time when her party proposed something different?

Cathy Jamieson: I beg to move, That this House believes bonuses should be rewards for exceptional performance and that, following the banking scandals that have emerged in the last few months, this year’s bank bonus round should reflect this principle; further believes that a tax on bank bonuses should be levied in order to fund a guaranteed paid starter job for young people who have been out of work for...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: Having sat on the Bill Committee for that piece of legislation, I remember well the considerable discussion that there was. If the hon. Gentleman has read our paper on banking reform, he will know that we support the reference to the Competition and Markets Authority to ensure that we get new challenger banks in the system. That will be an important feature of our reforms in government. Our...

Cathy Jamieson: As the hon. Gentleman knows, we did have a global financial crisis. The Labour party has accepted that perhaps the regulation could and should have been tighter; we have said that on numerous occasions. I was not in this place at the time of the financial crisis, but I do not recall many on the Conservative Benches making the case for tougher regulation. Indeed, the opposite is true; they...

Cathy Jamieson: I want to make a bit of progress, but I will give way once more to the hon. Gentleman.

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I am now becoming a bit confused about what Conservative Members are arguing for here. Do they want more or less regulation? [Interruption.] Did I hear someone say both? The important issue here is to ensure that regulation is fit for purpose, and that we do not simply have more of the same when we talk about new entrants into the banking system.

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving some clarity. He is absolutely right that regulation is part of the process, but we also need a culture change and an attitudinal change. He is correct to identify the lack of prosecutions. Although that is not mentioned specifically in the motion, I recommend that he reads Labour’s document, which takes account of that point. Our agenda is not entirely...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for what I think was a bit of a compliment about me making an intelligent speech. Of course, he then proceeded to make a party political point by trying to shift the emphasis back on to what happened before, and I understand why he would seek to do so. It is important to acknowledge that there have been changes, but there is no evidence yet to suggest that all the...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I thank the hon. Lady for her comments. The shadow Chancellor is not here, but neither is the Chancellor, so I am not sure what point she was trying to make in that regard. I recognise that a significant amount of money has gone to support valuable organisations such as the one she mentioned, but I hope that she was in no way suggesting that the banks should not be paying attention to their...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I will always give credit where it is due, but we also have to look at what has happened on this Government’s watch. As the hon. Gentleman knows, what we have seen with HSBC over the past few weeks shows that it can take considerable time for some of those issues to come to light and be dealt with. The important point is to have a regulatory environment in place that allows those issues to...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: My hon. Friend makes a useful point. I am confident that he has read the paper we published on that, which highlights the need to ensure that finance gets to small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular, and the important role that a proper British investment bank can play. Earlier this month we saw a new and startling example of impropriety, with the allegations that HSBC’s Swiss...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I do not think that anyone is suggesting that we want irresponsible lending. We want those businesses that are valuable, sustainable and want to grow—I am sure that the hon. Gentleman has heard from them in his constituency, as I have in mine—to be able to access finance. That is the important point.

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I was planning to say something about the cap later, but my hon. Friend has made her point with words that I would have difficulty bettering. Let me return to banks paying lavish bonuses. The public are understandably still questioning why, with wage stagnation and the cost of living crisis that they are all facing, senior bankers have continued to reward themselves in that way. Let us look...

Cathy Jamieson: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I know that he made those points during the work that he did. I am glad to hear that he agrees with us on some of this, and I will deal with a number of his points later. We still have to look at the actions of this Government in taking on the legal challenge to the EU bonus cap, however. I am sure that the hon. Gentleman does not suggest for...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: No, I want to finish this point. As I said, it seemed that the scenario proposed was still fairly generous, but it was obviously not generous enough for the Chancellor, who decided to take legal action. The quest ended in failure after he meekly admitted defeat at the hands of the EU’s lawyers, but not before he had wasted thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money in legal fees. Let us...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I will, in the hope that the hon. Gentleman is going to agree with my last point.

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: As I said to the hon. Gentleman earlier, perhaps he would like to take to take some time to read the report that we produced last week, which shows that we need to make several changes to ensure that there is greater competition. I do not see anything inconsistent in that and I hope that he will choose to read the report. I want to return to the point that bonuses should be a reward for...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day]: Bankers’ Bonuses and the Banking Industry (25 Chw 2015)

Cathy Jamieson: I want to finish my point. I have been very generous and time is moving on.
