    Notes

    The purpose of the banking corporation tax surcharge was to ensure that banks pay to cover the externality imposed on the public exchequer through risky strategies. In the wake of the passage of the Banking Act 2016 (V1019), that externality is significantly smaller, if not completely gone. It therefore does not make sense any longer to discriminate against the banking sector, and it is important to ensure our finance sectors are as competitive as possible.

    Aye. A sensible measure, which the Tories would be putting politics ahead of policy if they voted against.

    I am not against what this bill does, but I am against one line bills for clauses which should be included in previous bills; I voted no on that principle.
