European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Is it not far more likely that the Government will have to do that long before then, because everyone, including the Brexit Secretary, recognises that it is simply not possible to get everything agreed within the next year, plus a few months?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I am sure that the right hon. Gentleman will get a lot of support from the Labour Benches if his amendment is pressed to a vote. To be fair to our Front Benchers, they have made it clear that they think the option of staying in the single market and the customs union should remain on the table after the transition. The right hon. Gentleman was not quite fair in his description of our...

King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: The Minister quoted selectively from the chief executive of NHS Improvement, who also made it absolutely clear he did not think the NHS has enough money overall. In the real world, as opposed to the fantasy world inhabited by Conservative Ministers, Simon Stevens, the head of the NHS, has repeatedly told the Health Committee that the NHS cannot do what the Government are asking it to do with...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Will the Minister give way?

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Do those potential obstacles to the frictionless trade my hon. Friend talks about include the loss of regulatory alignment, which is the topic of the week?

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: And more expensive fish and chips.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I completely agree: I think we were stuffed —if that is parliamentary language—when we joined. But I am not pessimistic about the common fisheries policy; I am realistic, and the hon. Gentleman must acknowledge that in the last 15 to 20 years, since we undertook these reforms, the picture has been improving.

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: May I associate myself with the remarks of the hon. Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray) about marine safety organisations and fishermen’s welfare organisations? I am thinking particularly of the Fishermen’s Mission, in a year which, thankfully, has been one of the better ones in terms of fatalities at sea. I do not know whether you have had an opportunity to watch the...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Indeed I was. Thankfully, plastics are one of the more visible aspects of marine pollution, because we see them washed up on our beaches and the Government are taking action, but a great deal else that goes on is still invisible. There is another big difference between land-based and sea-based environmental degradation. The sea is a place where the ancient human activity of hunting and...

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Some do, but they tend to be quiet, because they are shouted down by Members of Parliament like the hon. Lady. If she has honest conversations with sensible fishermen who care about the long-term sustainability of their stocks, she will find that not all of them share her views, and it would be inaccurate to suggest that they do. As I was saying, some of our most valuable catches—and we...

Israel: Us Embassy (7 Dec 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: Further to the Minister’s answer to the Liberal Democrat spokesman, the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington (Tom Brake), who asked, “If not now, when?”, the Minister will be aware that one of the most grievous consequences of this decision is the impact on Palestinian public opinion. More and more people are giving up on a two-state solution. With...
