Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System: Compensation (22 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government whether they plan to introduce legislation to ensure that where there have been miscarriages of criminal and other civil justice caused by the Post Office in the Horizon scandal that victims are able to seek compensation for non-monetary losses such as stress, lost career opportunities, losses due sale of properties, losses caused by bankruptcy, loss of...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Nick Read (22 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government what employment the current Post Office Chief Executive Nick Read had between 30 September 2017 when he ceased to be a director of NISA Retail Limited and his appointment as Chief Executive Officer of the Post Office on 16 September 2019.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System (22 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government whether, further to reports by the forensic accounting company Second Sight, any Minister, civil servant, or director appointed by the Government advised the Post Office to make provision for contingent liabilities in its annual financial statements; and if so, on what dates such recommendations were made.

Post Office Governance and Horizon Compensation Schemes - Statement (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, I have a question about the undated letter from Sarah Munby to Mr Staunton that has been released. It asks him to focus on “effective management of legal costs”. Can the Minister explain what those legal costs are? What does that mean? Such a letter could not have been written without consultation with lots of colleagues as to what kind of terminology to use. Will the Minister...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: I am grateful to the Minister. Is she saying that we cut taxes for people? Earlier she mentioned 29 million people. Can she also confirm that 17.8 million UK adults with an income of less than £12,570 a year received a zero cut in national insurance or taxes in last year’s Budget?

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: I am happy to respond to the Minister—this could get interesting. The £12,570 threshold —and, as I said, 17.8 million adults have less than that —is after taking account of the increases in minimum wage. Many people have zero-hours contracts, work part-time or are maybe on a pension. That is after taking account of all the increases that the Minister said have been handed out.

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, it is always a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Leigh of Hurley, even though I do not agree with much of what he said. This Bill is a mishmash of policies that have already given us recession, poverty, stagnation, NHS queues, food banks, inequalities and crumbling public infrastructure. Building a just society does not seem to be on the Government’s agenda at all. The...

UK Economy - Commons Urgent Question (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, the Minister talked about curbing inflation. The Government have a very strange policy. I characterise it as somebody who has an ailment and goes to see their doctor, who dusts off a 100 year-old book in which, regardless of the reasons for the ailment, the answer is the same remedy. Whether inflation is caused by wage rises, inequalities or profiteering, it is the same policy: we...

UK Economy - Commons Urgent Question (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: Can I have another bite here? The Minister said that public sector wages are within reasonable bounds, which suggests that the Government think wage rises are inflationary. But that does not apply to executive pay, profiteering, dividends or share buybacks—are they not inflationary as well? If they are, why are the Government not curbing them?

Post Office Horizon Scandal: Racism - Question (19 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, none of the racist terms in the report, codenamed Project May, could have been used without the approval of directors, all of whom were appointed by the Government. Rather than hiding behind the claim that the Horizon inquiry might look at it, the Minister needs to be accountable to Parliament. An inquiry is not a substitute for parliamentary accountability. So, can he tell us when...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Post Office: Subsidies (15 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how much they have given to the Post Office in subsidies in each of the years since 2000.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System (15 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government when they first became aware of the prosecutions being brought against sub-postmasters for alleged deficits arising from deficiencies in the Horizon software system.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Waiting Lists (15 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Markham on 31 January (HL1876), stating that “If a patient dies whilst on an elective waiting list, the corresponding patient pathway should be removed from the list and recorded appropriately”, how many corresponding patient pathways entries have been removed from the records after the death of a patient.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System: Prosecutions (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how much funding they approved for prosecutions of sub-postmasters by the Post Office, if any.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System (14 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government what information they have about the application by the Post Office in 2019 to recuse Mr Justice Fraser from the High Court case of Bates and Others vs Post Office Ltd.

Developing World: Debt Reduction - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: My Lords, a major reason for the indebtedness of developing countries is that too many multinational corporations operating in them dodge taxes by shifting profits to low-tax or no-tax jurisdictions. The IMF estimates that around $213 billion of taxes are lost each year. An earlier Prime Minister introduced the Finance Act 2016 and promised that companies would publish a public form of...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Horizon IT System: WH Smith (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how many postmasters or other staff members working at Post Office branches located within WH Smith have been prosecuted for alleged shortfalls arising from issues with the Horizon IT system; and how many of these prosecutions were reviewed while Henry Staunton was chairman of the Post Office.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Henry Staunton (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government what risk assessment was made regarding the appointment of Henry Staunton as chairman of the Post Office on 2 September 2022; and what plans they have to publish that assessment.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Henry Staunton (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government what conflict of interest risk assessment was made regarding the appointment of Simon Jeffreys as a board member of the Crown Prosecution Service and a non-executive director of the Post Office.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Post Office: Public Appointments (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Sikka: To ask His Majesty's Government how many director nominations or appointments they have made or approved to the board of the Post Office in each of the years since 2000.
