    The fact that something would normally be included in a Finance Bill does not preclude it from being legislated for elsewhere.

    Not at all but it is being incorrectly legislated for.

    Is there any legislation that for some reason cannot be overruled that states it MUST be in finance bill alone and set for a single year?

    I didn't say it had to be in the finance bill.

    I can't remember the name of the Act. If you google corporation tax you'll find it. And if you seek to repeal it in some way to let this government attempt to weild more power than it has the legitimacy to weild then I will, of course, vote against automatically and urge everyone else to.

    I somehow doubt anybody wants a finance bill hundreds of pages long (419 for this year's)and so don't want all the hoops jumping through and as such are satisfied with rates being maintained according to Canon except where explicitly stated otherwise, and in those instances merely having it stated once.

    Oh, and all I can readily find in a search on my phone is a 2010 Act which from the buts I read didn't explicitly state what you suggest

    Who asked for a finance bill hundreds of pages long? Your exaggeration and straw-man combo is transparent and pathetic.

    I'm devastated by that.

    Well the alternative would be dysfunctional government finances

    Your government's misunderstanding of government finances is what's dysfunctional. You who've cried havoc over lazy bills and proper budgets should now humbly send this to a Second Reading with the error corrected as soon as the Speaker will allow.

    So you're saying that you do want a super long finance bill that will cover every penny of spending and every penny of tax under the sun and conform to rules that you are unable to even prove?

    Nothing in my post which you responded to suggested that. Just another transparent attempt to misrepresent what I'm saying because you are wrong.



    Corporation Tax Act 2010: "Corporation tax is charged at the rate set by Parliament for the financial year"
    Finance Act 2015 (representing the format all finance bills take when setting the corporation tax rate):
    (1) Corporation tax is charged for the financial year 2016.
    (2) For that year the main rate of corporation tax is 20%.


    Now, I'm sure you'll lobby the prime minister to ensure the bill is corrected for second reading.
