Frank Field quotes

Apr 18 2017 - London

We must be concerned about those families where money will not be passed on. The older people I speak to are worried about how their grandchildren will cope. Money skipping the generations is not really a solution. There are lots of people who have nothing to hand on and never will. I've long argued that you should pay less tax the more you distribute your capital. Tax rates should be higher if you keep your capital intact and you should be rewarded for distributing it. Muck's only good if it's spread around.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Uber

My worry is that as a result these companies contribute little to the public purse or our social safety net. They are not paying sick leave, National Living Wage, or contributing to pensions. Yet it seems that their employment practices will lead more people to need taxpayers to pick up these costs.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Uber

Quite frankly the Uber contract is gibberish. They are well aware that many, if not most, of their drivers speak English as a second language – they recently lost a court case trying to escape Transport for London's new English testing rules for private hire drivers – yet their contract is almost unintelligible. These companies parade the 'flexibility' their model offers to drivers, but it seems the only real flexibility is enjoyed by the companies themselves. It does seem a marvellous business model if you can get away with it.feedback

Not long after he refused to shift on a ludicrous 23-year recovery plan for the BHS scheme, he agreed a 13-year plan for Arcadia with well over double the deficit contributions. I imagine Green would say Arcadia could afford it because it was profitable, whereas BHS was not. But it is clear that all his companies are run as one large tax-efficient empire in the family interest.feedback

I couldn't think of a better way of rubbing the noses of BHS pensioners and the 11,000 people who lost their jobs in his mess than hosting a birthday party at one of the most expensive hotels in the Britain.feedback

Mar 04 2017

It [the restriction] makes the job more tiresome, slows it down, and creates more work for constituents. It's barmy and unnecessary, and it's a major barrier to justice.feedback

Mar 03 2017

The gig economy is producing wave after wave of evidence on the grim reality of life at the bottom of Britain's labour market.feedback

Jul 25 2016

One person, and one person alone is ultimately responsible for the BHS disaster.feedback

Apr 30 2016

The spine of our inquiry is looking at how and where money went out of the company, to whom it went, and how this may have disadvantaged the pensioners.feedback
