European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [9th Allotted Day] (15 Jan 2019)

Bill Cash: For me, this has been a very long journey towards leaving the European Union. The European question has always been about who governs this country and how. The national interest is served by our democratic system of parliamentary government, which has evolved over centuries of our history. We make our laws in this Parliament, in line with the consent of the voters in general elections, on the...

Leaving the EU (14 Jan 2019)

Bill Cash: Will my right hon. Friend confirm what she said at Stoke today: namely, that she will never extend—never extend—the date of our leaving beyond 29 March this year, and never in any circumstances whatsoever allow the repeal of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, or of the repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 under that Act?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Points of Order (9 Jan 2019)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Will you confirm that no amendment to the European withdrawal motion can have any legislative effect and therefore cannot override the express repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 in any shape or form, which was passed under section 1 of the withdrawal Act by this House and by Parliament on 26 June this year?

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Review of effects on public finances (8 Jan 2019)

Bill Cash: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Finance (No. 3) Bill: Review of effects on public finances (8 Jan 2019)

Bill Cash: It is not often that I agree with the right hon. Gentleman, as he knows, but I strongly agree with him on this issue. Retrospective legislation is bad in principle. This is an unjust provision, unreasonable and unfair, and I urge the Government to take note of the arguments put forward.

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Changes (7 Jan 2019)

Bill Cash: First, may I endorse the comments by my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood) about the money side of things? It is not just that the backstop is not sufficient in itself. It is a vital issue, but it is not the whole story by any means. We have the European Court of Justice, the question of control over laws, the question of the extension of time under article 132, the...

European Council (17 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: Will the Prime Minister confirm that, despite the European Council’s so-called legal endorsement of the withdrawal agreement, which it says is not open for renegotiation, this agreement has not been initialled or signed by her and is only a draft—it is no more than a political agreement under which nothing is agreed until everything is agreed, including the backstop—and therefore she...

Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: The Prime Minister has now reached the cliff-edge of resignation. I believe that she may well have to resign. Yesterday’s events—running away from the vote and then off to Germany, Holland and the EU—was yet another humiliation for the United Kingdom. She is clinging to the wreckage. She has reached the point of no return. The pulling of the vote yesterday was an insult to the House of...

Points of Order (10 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The agreement appears to have been initialled by the Prime Minister about 10 days ago. Am I right in construing what you have just said as meaning that if there is a new withdrawal agreement so initialled a second time with a new signature, then effectively the entire procedure—whether with regard to the question of the contempt motion or, for that matter,...

Business of the House (10 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: Will the Leader of the House tell us whether the resolution of the House passed on 4 December relating to the Attorney General’s advice will apply to any further arrangements that may be offered to the House as a result of any further negotiations over the next week or so? If it is not the same withdrawal agreement, there must be a question about whether that motion stands, because it...

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: The Prime Minister knows that the withdrawal agreement and the political declaration both cover many legal issues beyond the backstop, important and vital though that is. Those issues include the European Court, control over our own laws and questions relating to compatibility with the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. Under the ministerial code, there is an absolute obligation to consult...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: The motion relating to the Attorney General that was passed yesterday related to the whole agreement, not just to the question to which the letter that has now been published relates, which is exclusively the protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland. Given that the ministerial code states: “The Law Officers must be consulted in good time before the Government is committed to critical...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: I must say that I found the answers given by the Attorney General yesterday extremely difficult to understand in the terms in which they were expressed—that is, of relating to the national interest, because that is a question that is contained in the results of the referendum and the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. Following reports that I have heard, I also find it most...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: Just one moment. If there is a danger that the withdrawal agreement could be invalid, that is a matter of fundamental importance on which I would have expected the Attorney General to include his opinion, but there is no evidence whatsoever that he referred to that in his opinion, and that is why we need full disclosure. I also understand that there are sheaves of papers within governmental...

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Position (3 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: On the issue of precedents, there are five—[Interruption.]

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Position (3 Dec 2018)

Bill Cash: Thank you, Mr Speaker. There are five precedents over the past 40 years of full disclosure being made of an Attorney General’s advice for compelling and exceptional reasons in the public interest. Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that he can—as in my view he should—consent on his own independent account as Attorney General under the ministerial code to the full publication of...

Business of the House: Improving Education Standards (29 Nov 2018)

Bill Cash: I commend what my hon. Friend is saying and the work he is doing, because I am his next-door neighbour, and Stafford and Stone run together in a lot of these matters. We are both fighting hard to get the best possible standards for our constituents.
