      Mark made the following interventions in a debate on the Charter for Budget Responsibility: Mark Field (Cities of London and Westminster) (Con) I am certainly not in the mode of wanting to chide my right hon.

    Treasury Questions – EU Budget: UK Contribution 2017-18

    Mark Field (Cities of London and Westminster) (Con) I appreciate that getting back some of our EU contribution was a factor in the decision to leave the European Union, but will my right hon.

    5 September Mark Field – I suspect we all know that the autumn statement will be coming up at some point in late November or early December, if precedent is anything to go by.

    HMRC and Google

    Mark made the following intervention in the debates on Google’s tax affairs: Mark Field (Cities of London and Westminster) (Con): No one should underestimate the complex nature of trying to tax globally active corporations such as this.

    Finance Bill

    Mark made the following contributions to today’s debate on the Finance Bill: Mark Field (Cities of London and Westminster) (Con): While I support the robust way in which the Minister is protecting the public purse, he will also recognise, not least from the correspondence he must have received, that many colleagues and constituents feel that this fairness deal […]

    Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation

    Mark Field (Cities of London and Westminster) (Con): As the City’s MP, it would be remiss of me not to touch on the issue of the bank levy.

    Superfast Broadband

    Mark Field (Cities of London and Westminster) (Con): I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Boston and Skegness (Matt Warman) on securing the debate.
