High Speed 2: Electronic Deposit of Documents (11 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: My hon. Friend has quietly referred to the maps, but of course there are also the specifications and the limits of deviation. He knows perfectly well how much all this involves. Can I have an assurance that, if required, all those things will also be made available in hard copy?

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I would like to quote what Angela Merkel has said quite recently, but first I would like to say that I entirely endorse every single word that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State said—not to flatter him, but because it is practical. He has shown a command of the subject that completely belies the tittle-tattle that the hon. Member for Brent North (Barry Gardiner) talked about....

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I will not give way just yet. The speech by Mr Barnier today is extremely relevant, and I have the benefit of having the full text here. I will not go through every detail of it, I can assure you, Madam Deputy Speaker, but I note that some of the things that he said are highly relevant to what my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State rightly pointed out in his speech. On the question of...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: My hon. Friend and I have been battling on these questions for 30 years, including since Maastricht. He hits the nail on the head. Democracy is lacking in the European Union. The freedom of choice to which Donald Trump referred today—the freedom of sovereign nations to decide their own democratic decision-making processes, including the right to determine their own trade...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I know where the hon. Gentleman is coming from, but I simply say that even the leader of his party has had to abandon the pursuit of the independence of Scotland, which is what underpins that question. [Interruption.] That is the bottom line. Comparisons between our great country and Somalia and Sudan are simply absurd, because this is a great country that has been making its own laws for...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I always know that I am making an impact when the hon. Member for Wantage starts wanting to get to his feet.

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: He is my right hon. Friend—my very good friend. [Laughter.] I have great respect for him, although we do not always agree about everything. The same is true of my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke), who is, I suspect, on much the same track as him. We enjoy a trade surplus of £34.4 billion with the rest of the world. As I said, yes, 44% of our...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: Yes, all right.

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: It is the aggregate of goods and services. When we consider whether we are making a deficit or a surplus, we have to look at the totality of the position. Mr Crawford Falconer, the chief trade negotiation adviser, has an enormous amount of experience, and I am extremely glad to hear that he has been given the job of negotiating with countries such as the USA, Canada and Australia. Last year,...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend knows that all 47 ports in this country opposed the European Union port regulation, which was inimical to our national interest and the lifeblood of our trading relationships. Ports are central to this whole question, and that is another good reason for our leaving the EU.

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I think the hon. Gentleman is aware that, under the proposed repeal Bill, there would be a transposition of European law into UK law under Westminster jurisdiction. That would include the very rights to which he refers, and I think that is understood on the Opposition Front Bench, is it not?

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: As has been mentioned, the European Scrutiny Committee, of which I was Chairman for six years, has actually cleared these decisions. We did have some reservations about one aspect, however, namely that we wanted to know how all this would work out during the Brexit negotiations and after we have left the European Union. Basically, there is a necessity for this Bill because, as the Minister...

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I am glad to respond, because I have been very much engaged on that subject. In fact, one of the last things I did on the day of Dissolution was to write to the Chief Whip asking him to ensure that our Committee was reconstituted immediately after the election, because in 2015 the whole process went on until November, by which time we had a monument of documents. In the meantime, many things...

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I am not at all convinced by the EEA route. I do not want to get into all that now, except to say that the EEA involves the EU.

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: EFTA is a different story, and I specifically raised it with the Prime Minister only a few days ago because I have been having fruitful discussions with the president of the EFTA court and his advisers. He has been over here to talk to the Foreign Office, to me as the then Chair of the European Scrutiny Committee and to others. It is an interesting proposition. I am not saying that we will do...
