European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: That is absolutely right, and that is why, in my short speech earlier, I said that this should be called not the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill but the European Union (Subservience) Bill. This is a subjugation, and we have experienced this. That is why I called on the previous Prime Minister to resign. We had a capitulation on 11 April; we had a flurry of points of order, then we had a...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: I do not think that that is really an excuse, because the reality is that this is the decision—[Interruption.] I will read out the subsection to which the right hon. Gentleman just referred. It states that “subsection (2) does not apply if the House of Commons has decided not to pass a motion moved by a Minister of the Crown within a period of two calendar days beginning with the end of...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: That is true. Indeed, we had all this back in April when, if one looks at the text of the decision and the manner in which it has taken, one can see that it was hedged with certain conditions. What is going on here is that this Bill is driving us to do something that is in complete contravention to the decision that has been taken already in section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: The question I raise in this series of amendments relates in particular, as I said in my brief speech just now, to the extent to which the United Kingdom is put under a duty—an obligation —to be subservient to the European Union. I find this Bill deeply offensive for that reason alone, and, as I said earlier, our whole parliamentary constitutional arrangement is based on the fact that we...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill: Duties in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend nods his head, because that is true, and that is how it goes.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: I want to refer briefly to the remarks of the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt). I simply want to explain very simply that I was going to intervene because he referred to the sacrifice that people had made in the last war and I want to put it on record that my father was killed in the last war, and I think I understand not only the issues involved in that, but...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: Will he take a second intervention?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: Does the right hon. Gentleman believe that, irrespective of the speed with which all this is being done, a matter of such importance should really be dealt with in the context of a general election?

Speaker’S Statement (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. It will be perfectly obvious to anyone watching these proceedings and, for that matter, the entire House that this incredibly rushed procedure is a travesty in itself. This will be incredibly difficult, even given the manner in which you put your statement just now, due to the speed with which we are going to have to assess the Bill, which we have not even...

Bill Cash: rose—

Speaker’S Statement (4 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I understand your ruling. I just want to put on the record the fact that where I was referring to discussions that have taken place, those have been based on some extremely learned analyses, for example, those by Dr Robert Craig, which are available on blogs and in various papers, and Sir Stephen Laws, a former First Parliamentary Counsel. So these...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: I have heard an enormous amount over the last few weeks about the way in which the Government are undermining democracy and our sovereignty. We have just heard my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke) rubbishing a lot of the arguments that the Government have put forward over the last few weeks. I will simply say this: there are those in this House, however much...

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: rose—

European Union (Withdrawal) (3 Sep 2019)

Bill Cash: The intervention of my right hon. Friend the Member for West Dorset (Sir Oliver Letwin) can only be described as breathtaking. In support of the assertion by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House that it was weighted with great arrogance, may I ask him to be good enough to confirm that in fact the European Union Referendum Bill, as enacted, was a sovereign Act of Parliament, which...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Non-Disclosure Agreements (15 Jul 2019)

Bill Cash: Having listened to the Front-Bench speeches from both the Government and the Opposition, I could not disagree with both of them more. This Bill is a travesty. It is an abomination. I heard the Opposition spokesman say just now that it will transform the midlands, providing huge opportunities. I do wish that she would understand from what I said earlier that my constituents most emphatically...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Bill Cash: Only a few days ago the Stone Railhead Crisis Group, which represents the interests of my constituents around Stone, met the regional director of Highways England and discovered that there are some very serious problems for Highways England at both Hanchurch and the proposed HS2 junction at Yarnfield Lane that really require re-evaluation, which I intend to go into a bit on Third Reading. Is...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Bill Cash: I am glad to confirm everything my hon. Friend has said, but I am a little puzzled that he left new clause 4 out of the list of amendments on which he was intending to cast a vote. I wonder if he could throw any light on that: is it because of the point that I and others have made about the report coming into effect only after the Act has received Royal Assent, or is it because of something...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Bill Cash: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend—a real friend, quite apart from being an hon. Friend—and I would add that we only have to look at clause 61 to realise the financial implications and how costs will be dealt with. There is talk about the overall cost being about £51 billion—there has been an upgrade in the amount of money intended to be applied to this part of the proposal. We...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Bill Cash: They certainly are, and there are also freehold properties. People who own property, as I have just described, are being put under the most intense anxiety, so I understand the reasons that lie behind the principle of new clause 2. On new clause 4, I made my point in my intervention on the shadow Minister. I simply cannot understand it. Notwithstanding the intention that appears to be behind...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill: Quarterly reports on environmental impact, costs and progress (15 Jul 2019)

Bill Cash: The hon. Member for York Central is smiling as she looks across the Chamber—[Interruption.] She says that it is unbelievable, but it is anything but unbelievable—it is entirely true and entirely credible. My hon. Friend the Member for Lichfield backed me up on this. What is the point in having a first-class, independent review of the kind that is being advocated and saying that it will...
