That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Finance (No. 3) Bill because it derives from the 2018 Budget which confirmed the continuation of austerity, provided tax cuts for higher earners and failed to follow Scotland’s lead in progressive taxation, failed to provide the funding required to provide a social security system that treats people with dignity and respect, failed to provide the necessary stimulus to compensate for the economic impact of Brexit, furthered age discrimination and did not give young people a real Living Wage, failed to provide concrete measures to support the oil and gas industry, failed to match Scottish Government funding for sectoral and regional deals covering the whole of Scotland, failed to repay the Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service’s iniquitous VAT bills, failed to give back the convergence uplift funds reallocated away from Scottish crofters, and is a wholly inadequate response to the economic challenges being faced by Scotland and the UK.

That this House declines to give the Finance (No. 3) Bill a Second Reading because it derives from the 2018 Budget which confirmed the continuation of austerity and tax cuts for the wealthiest, failed to introduce a fair taxation system which protects middle and low earners but requires a greater contribution from the top 5 per cent of highest income earners, implied real terms per capita cuts for unprotected departments between 2019-20 and 2023-24, failed to halt roll-out of Universal Credit with planned social security cuts still to come, failed to raise the funding needed for mental health services, failed to provide the long-term funding needed for long-term adult social care, failed to provide adequate school funding, failed to address the funding gap that local councils face, failed to end the funding crisis facing public services, with police, teachers, nurses and doctors having no reassurances that the public sector pay squeeze will end in 2019, failed to tackle child poverty and growing inequality across our country, failed to tackle the fact that 87 per cent of the impact of the Government’s tax and benefit changes since 2010 has fallen on the shoulders of women, failed adequately to address climate change and delayed the much-needed reduction in the maximum stake for fixed-odds betting terminals until October 2019, and because the Bill is not based on an amendment of the law resolution, thus restricting the House’s ability to properly scrutinise and improve the Bill.

Tim Farron

Wera HobhouseChristine JardineNorman LambStephen LloydLayla MoranJamie Stone

That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Finance (No. 3) Bill because it makes provision for a £1.3 billion tax cut for higher earners, money which should instead have been used to reverse cuts to Universal Credit or end the benefits freeze, because it does not make provision for comprehensive tax reform to boost economic growth and put the country’s long-term public finances on a sustainable footing, including by replacing business rates with a tax on commercial land to incentivise business investment and support poorer regions and by reforming asset taxation to ensure that the wealthiest pay their fair share, because it derives from the 2018 Budget which did not genuinely end austerity, instead only providing short-term funding that does not adequately address the shortfalls faced by public services such as schools, colleges and community policing, and because the commitments made in the Budget will have to be abandoned in the event of Britain’s planned departure from the European Union, which will weaken both economic growth and the public finances.

Caroline Lucas

That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Finance (No.3 ) Bill because it is derived from a Budget which fails to transform the national economy away from one designed to grow industrial output at all costs, into one which delivers the systems level change required to tackle the climate emergency and ensure the United Kingdom’s safety, equality and prosperity in an era of ecological breakdown, as evidenced by the October 2018 IPCC report, which identifies the urgent need to cut annual global emissions by half in the next 12 years and hit net zero by the middle of the century, as well as by the World Wildlife Fund’s estimate in its recent Living Planet report that humanity has wiped out 60 per cent of animal populations since 1970, destroying the web of life upon which human society ultimately depends.

Jonathan Edwards

Liz Saville Roberts

Hywel Williams

Ben Lake

That this House declines to give a Second Reading to the Finance (No.3) Bill because it derives from the 2018 Budget which confirmed the continuation of austerity, provided tax cuts for higher earners, failed to give Wales full consequentials arising from the construction of HS2, failed to provide the funding required to provide a social security system that treats people with dignity and respect, failed to provide the necessary stimulus to compensate for the economic impact of Brexit, failed to guarantee a Shared Prosperity Fund formula which protects payments made to Wales, failed to conduct an independent assessment of all tax reliefs, did not secure a reasonable settlement for women affected by the changes to the state pension age increase, failed to freeze corporation tax, failed to devolve VAT, airport duty and corporation tax to the National Assembly for Wales and because the Welsh Government’s increased borrowing powers are limited to their being spent on the M4 Black Route.

Notes:

The Speaker has not yet considered the Bill for certification.
