Upcoming Business – Lords: Main Chamber ()

External auditing deficiencies highlighted by the collapse of BHS, Carillion, Patisserie Valerie and London Capital and Finance – Lord Sikka. Short debate

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mental Health Services: Children (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how many children under the age of 11 are currently being provided with help with their mental health.

Written Answers — Treasury: Revenue and Customs: Pay (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to oral evidence by officials on the work of HMRC given to the Treasury Select Committee on 24 April, how many HMRC employees on 1 January had earnings at or below the national minimum wage.

Fly-tipping - Question (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, fly-tipping has increased because many councils do not have weekly refuse collection and charge people for taking items to the local refuse collection centres. A major reason behind this is that council spending power as funded by the Government fell in real terms by more than 50% between 2010-11 and 2020-21, and this has not been restored. What responsibility does the Minister...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: Before we leave the issue of DWP convictions, can the Minister confirm or otherwise—he might wish to write—whether any DWP investigator, official or witness has at any point retracted evidence given under oath to any Crown Court?

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, I welcome this Bill, as it enables some postmasters wrongly convicted to secure some compensation and wipe the slate clean, though the scars of injustice will remain with them and their families for ever. I will raise four broad areas of concern. First, as has been pointed out, Clause 1 quashes convictions prosecuted by the Post Office and the Crown Prosecution Service only. It does...

Deepfakes: General Election - Question ( 8 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, it is not just technology that can undermine the outcome of general elections; the Government are facilitating it, too. Jacob Rees-Mogg, former Business Secretary, famously said that voter ID rules were an attempt to “gerrymander” the electoral system. Does the Minister have any empirical evidence to show that the introduction of the voter ID system has reduced alleged fraud or...

Water Companies: Licence Conditions - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty’s Government what estimates have been made of the distributable reserves of each water company now that OFWAT has taken powers under the Environment Act 2021 to change their licence conditions, including whether they can pay dividends.

Water Companies: Licence Conditions - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, as I have previously pointed out in this House, water company accounts are not only massaged but cooked and roasted with abusive accounting practices. Ofwat and the Government have said that under certain circumstances they will block the payment of dividends, which presupposes that they know what the legally defined distributable profits of each company are. The Minister has just...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Company Liquidations ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how many liquidations began (1) five, (2) 10, and (3) 15, years ago but are still not finalised.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Post Office: Audit ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with the Financial Reporting Council in relation to external audits of the Post Office.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System: Prosecutions ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government what (1) financial, and (2) legal, support they will provide to sub-postmasters to bring private prosecutions against past directors of the Post Office for concealing faults in the Horizon IT system and falsely prosecuting them.

Child Poverty - Question for Short Debate (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for facilitating this much-needed debate. In a country boasting a record number of billionaires and where the top 1% has more wealth than 70% of the population combined, condemning 4.3 million children to poverty is really a political choice. There is no economic necessity for it whatever. Governments have bailed out banks and energy companies and...

Start-up Companies: Tax Incentives - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, in January the National Audit Office reported that error and fraud in SME research and development tax credits had increased to 24.4% or £1.04 billion. It added: “There are too many examples where these reliefs either do not achieve their economic objectives or are subject to significant error and fraud costing the Exchequer billions of pounds”. Can the Minister explain why the...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Water Companies: Debts (26 Ebr 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government why OFWAT calculate gearing levels of water companies by using a debt-to-assets ratio as opposed to a debt-to-equity ratio.

Written Answers — Treasury: Advance Pricing Agreements (25 Ebr 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how many advance transfer pricing agreements have been signed by HM Revenue and Customs in each of the past five years.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Electric Vehicles: Batteries (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how many UK-based companies produce batteries for electric vehicles; and what is their collective capacity.

Paying Polluters: UN Report - Question (22 Ebr 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, many developing countries are handicapped by clauses in foreign direct investment agreements—sometimes called stabilisation clauses—that forbid the hearing of disputes in local courts. As a result, local courts’ lawyers are unable to develop the expertise or necessary institutional structure to combat corporate power. What steps are the Government taking to ban the inclusion...
