National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time. For the second time this year, we are cutting taxes for 29 million working people across the country—something that is particularly remarkable in the aftermath of the worst pandemic in 100 years, the worst war in mainland Europe since 1945, and the highest energy spike since the 1970s. The Government have had to take difficult...

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: My hon. Friend is consistent in holding the administration in London to account. He is right: as we are still not out of the woods when it comes to the cost of living crisis, the Conservative party has made it clear that we disagree with the Mayor of London’s approach of making motorists poorer. As I said, building on the changes in the autumn statement, we will once again be supporting...

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: My hon. Friend is right to point that out. A fundamental benefit of reducing tax is that it improves growth in our economy, because more people will be in work and working longer hours. That obviously generates more productivity for our economy, and ultimately more tax revenues for the Exchequer. It is a fundamental Conservative principle that we want lower taxes, and we are delivering that...

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: My hon. Friend is right to point that out. I would add to those figures: since 2010, we have lifted millions of people across the country, including in Southend West, out of paying any tax at all by doubling the point at which people start paying tax in our country. People can now earn £1,000 a month without paying any tax, and that is a great achievement of a Conservative Government....

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: Yet again my hon. Friend makes a valuable contribution. I commit to taking his idea away to consider, as we look at reducing the unfairness in the tax system in future and reducing national insurance contributions when it is prudent and responsible to do so. The Labour party is completely all over the place on this. As a Conservative Government, we have delivered a clear message to the...

National Insurance Contributions (Reduction in Rates) (No.2) Bill (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: I am grateful for the opportunity to clarify that, because there has been a lot of noise from the Labour Benches, too. It is true that we have had to make some difficult decisions about overall taxation on the back of the pandemic, but today we are cutting taxes on work, because that is the way to grow our economy. As I said, we now have the lowest personal taxation level since 1975. Some...

Written Answers — Treasury: Carbon Emissions (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: The government will implement a carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM) from 1 January 2027 to ensure that UK decarbonisation efforts lead to a true reduction in global emissions.

Written Answers — Treasury: Treasury: Domestic Visits (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: The Government publishes on GOV.UK details of the cost of overseas Ministerial travel, including costs of travel, and on other costs (visas, accommodation, meals). However, as has been the case under successive administrations, the Government does not publish granular detail on Ministers’ travel at home or abroad.

Written Answers — Treasury: UK Emissions Trading Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: The UK is a world leader on carbon pricing. That is why we have an ambitious carbon pricing system, which ensures that polluters pay for their emissions. Those businesses are protected from carbon leakage in the form of free allowances under the Emissions Trading Scheme, and from 2027, some UK sectors will be protected from carbon leakage by a UK CBAM. The CBAM is a charge on imports and is...

Written Answers — Treasury: UK Emissions Trading Scheme (13 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: The Government is committed to supporting decarbonisation. That is why it protects sectors included in the Emissions Trading Scheme against carbon leakage by allocating free allowances, with installations vulnerable to carbon leakage receiving up to 100% of their emissions allowances for free based on sector benchmarks. The Government also delivers compensation for the majority of indirect...

Written Answers — Treasury: Clean Air Zones (12 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: Responsibility for road charging measures such as Clean Air Zones (CAZ) lie with Local Authorities. The local authority is responsible for the measures they introduce to address air quality in their local area as well as whether to provide exemptions that address issues such as the need to upgrade vehicles and support for those on Low incomes. Government has allocated £883m under the NO2...

Written Answers — Treasury: Treasury: Offenders (12 Maw 2024)

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (11 Maw 2024)

Gareth Davies: It is my pleasure to close the second full day of debate on this year’s spring Budget. This is a Budget for long-term growth, and today we have heard a number of excellent speeches about the importance of growth in our economy. Despite multiple forecasters suggesting that growth would be historically poor, our economy grew last year and will grow this year and every year until the end of...
