    Defence Expenditure (NATO Target) Bill - 2nd reading (day 2) – Gerald Howarth. Legislation
  • Parliamentary Sovereignty and EU Renegotiations 4 Feb 2016

    Is the hon. Gentleman aware that serious vested interests in the European Union will in no way allow Scotland to accede to the European Union? If he does not see that, he need look no further than Spain.
  • Parliamentary Sovereignty and EU Renegotiations 4 Feb 2016

    My hon. Friend is making a very good case. Does he agree that if we no longer had to pay about 10 billion net to the European Commission, we would have an awful lot of money to be able to institute a proper arrangement for support for and investment in the research he has mentioned?
