Leaving the Eu: Economic Analysis (28 Nov 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: The Chancellor said, very sensibly, on the radio this morning that if, or rather when, the Government’s proposals were voted down by the House, the Government would have to consider all other options. If one of those options is the so-called pivot to Norway, may I say to the Minister, as someone who has voted for that in the past, that the ship has sailed? The only option left available to...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: To mark the 30th World AIDS Day on Saturday, will the Government commit to a more ambitious, but completely achievable, target of ending all new HIV infections by 2030?

Leaving the EU (26 Nov 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: May I thank the Prime Minister for the efforts she made personally on behalf of my constituent Matthew Hedges, who has been released this morning? That is a bit of good news amidst all this Brexit mess. But on Brexit, if she is so confident that the public support this deal, why does she not ask them?

Progress on EU Negotiations (22 Nov 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: Poorer, with less control, and years and years of more uncertainty. [Interruption.] In her heart of hearts, does the Prime Minister honestly think that this is what people were voting for two and a half years ago?

Interpol Presidency Election (20 Nov 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: What contingency plan do the Government have, in the event that this Putin stooge is elected, to work with our western democracy allies—who, after all, mainly fund Interpol—to set up an alternative democratic, transparent and non-corrupt organisation?

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: The Prime Minister will be aware that the main financial backer of Brexit, Mr Arron Banks, is now under criminal investigation by the National Crime Agency because of serious doubts about the true source of the money he spent on the leave campaign. Did the Prime Minister, when she was Home Secretary in 2016, decline a request from the security services for Mr Banks to be investigated?

Health and Social Care Committee (1 Nov 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: Given the picture the hon. Lady just described, she will be aware of the serious problems in Exeter Prison, which the staff there are doing their utmost to try to address. Does she agree that, as we face voting on the Budget later this afternoon, it might have been better, rather than giving tax cuts to the richest 10%, for the Chancellor to spend that money on helping our prisons to deliver...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (23 Oct 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: Is it true that the Secretary of State is now so worried about the supply of vital medicines in the event of a no deal or a hard Brexit that he has asked the pharmaceutical industry to extend the period of stockpiling from six weeks to 20 weeks?

Leaving the Eu: Meaningful Vote (22 Oct 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: What does the Secretary of State think the consequences would be if a majority in this House opposed the deal, opposed no deal and perhaps in those circumstances even supported a people’s vote if the Government tried to thwart the will of this House being expressed and implemented?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Oct 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: My constituent Matthew Hedges, a young PhD student, has been held in a jail in the United Arab Emirates for more than five months, and this week he was charged with spying. Will the Prime Minister ensure that her Government make it quite clear to the UAE that Matt was in the country to do academic research, and nothing more? Will she also ensure that he receives full consular and legal...

Bullying and Harassment: Cox Report (16 Oct 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: Along with my hon. Friend the Member for Bassetlaw (John Mann), I was one of the first Members to call for independent regulation before the expenses scandal erupted and during it. I think that independent regulation and external adjudication will be the only way forward—I agree with you about that, Mr Speaker. Is it not clear from some of the contributions that we have heard that some...

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Oct 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: It must be obvious to the Prime Minister that there is no majority in this place for a hard or no-deal Brexit, and she cannot do the sensible thing on the customs union and the single market because half her party and the DUP will not let her, so is she never tempted by the suggestion of her right hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry) that the way out of this mess—for her and...

Government Overseas Aid Commitment: Private Investment: EU Exit Negotiations (9 Oct 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: If the Tories want to know what Labour policy is, they should read the excellent motion that was passed recently at our party conference. Does the Secretary of State agree that any withdrawal agreement must include precise guarantees that Britain and the EU will enjoy frictionless trade in the event of Brexit, as the No. 10 Downing Street spokesman said yesterday?

Idlib (10 Sep 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: I welcome the right hon. Gentleman’s assurance that Britain will support a robust response should Assad resort to chemical weapons again, but the sad truth is that Syria represents the worst failing of the civilised world since Rwanda and Burundi, after which we said, “Never again,” so does he think that, when all this is over, there may be a case for an inquiry in Britain into how on...

Electoral Commission Investigation: Vote Leave (17 Jul 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: The Government propose legislation. The Electoral Commission has made specific recommendations to the Government about what they need to do. Will the Minister do it?

Eu: Future Relationship White Paper (12 Jul 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: Only half a page of this document is about health—and that relates to infectious diseases—despite a recent Health Committee report stating clearly that patients’ lives and safety will be in danger if there is any interruption at all to the supply of vital medicines and medical equipment into this country. How is the Secretary of State going to guarantee that there will be no such...

Ben Bradshaw: Commiserations on the tennis, Mr Speaker.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Leaving the EU: UK Fish Exports (12 Jul 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: I welcome the Secretary of State’s belated recognition that we cannot have frictionless exports to the European Union for our fish and agriculture products if we are not in a single market, as the Chequers agreement recognises. Will he explain why his fellow hard-Brexiteers do not seem to grasp that simple truth? Do they just not care about our fish and agricultural exports?

The Hon. Member for Houghton and Sunderland South, Representing the Speaker’S Committee on the Electoral Commission, Was Asked: Referendum Rules (12 Jul 2018)

Ben Bradshaw: If the ultimate findings of the Electoral Commission investigation into law-breaking by the leave campaign are as serious as the version that was leaked disgracefully by the leave campaign, will my hon. Friend make it absolutely clear to the Electoral Commission that this House and the public will expect full criminal investigations by the police and the National Crime Agency into this...
