Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts: HS2 Ltd: Communication and Engagement (27 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: As my hon. Friend will know, the word consultation means “I hear what you say”, but it does not mean that “I will do what you ask”. In fact, the attitude that has been highlighted by my right hon. and hon. Friends, and that I have had personal experience of, is that people are listened to, but then nothing much happens after that. That is called communication, not...

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts: HS2 Ltd: Communication and Engagement (27 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: It has been brought to my attention that there have been proposals for tunnelling through sand and gravel, and that in such circumstances an enormous of time will be wasted given that it is not possible to do that because it just falls in.

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts: HS2 Ltd: Communication and Engagement (27 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: I want to use this opportunity to register my concern, about which I am writing to the persons responsible, regarding the temporary construction facility of a railhead near Stone, in my constituency, which will affect Swynnerton, Eccleshall and Stone itself—as well as Yarnfield, of course, which is where I am going on Saturday. I just thought I would get that on the record so that the...

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts: HS2 Ltd: Communication and Engagement (27 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: As my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy) is aware, we have a serious problem in our part of Staffordshire. What my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Mrs Gillan) is suggesting would help enormously to deal with the frequent complaints about the manner in which HS2 Ltd is operating, which is causing local people enormous anxiety. I shall be seeing some of...

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts: HS2 Ltd: Communication and Engagement (27 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: The cost of HS2 started at £30 billion, then rose to £50 billion, and is now increasing further. According to the latest estimates from all the experts, it is rising exponentially. One can imagine that it might end up being £80 billion or even more, in which case it would cost more than Hinkley Point, the Heathrow development and a development at Gatwick, if that were also to...

Petition - Implementation of the 1995 and 2011 Pension Acts: HS2 Ltd: Communication and Engagement (27 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: As my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford implied, the fact is that whatever is decided regarding the current Bill as it goes through the House of Lords will inevitably be applied as a precedent for the next Bill. That is why we need to follow closely what my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham says. I congratulate her on doing everything possible to get this right now.

European Council (24 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: In congratulating my right hon. Friend on her principled stand in implementing the verdict of the British people, despite the doom and gloom that pours out from parts of the media, may I ask whether she is aware that last week the Chairman of the European Parliament’s Committee on Budgets stated that the EU was too intrusive, it broke its own rules, its members did not trust one another...

Exiting the European Union: Article 50 (20 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: Is my right hon. Friend aware that in the last 24 hours the House of Lords has reported that there should be a vote in this House “to debate and approve the negotiating guidelines, at least in outline”? Does he accept that Parliament as a whole, including the House of Lords, has to not only respect, but also accept, the verdict of the British people and furthermore that it is for...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend accept that it is impossible for us to repeal the 1972 Act on the one hand, which is the endgame, and on the other to remain subject to the jurisdiction of the European Court within the single market? We trade into the single market, but we are not in the single market; that is the point.

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: I must say, in response to the right hon. Member for Doncaster North (Edward Miliband), that there are of course those who do not and never will accept the outcome of the referendum and who will use almost any means at their disposal to try to overturn it or mitigate the result, while constantly and disingenuously stating their respect for it. That is abundantly clear. This historic vote was...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: It is clear from the wording I read out that safeguarding British interests in the single market applies to the intervening period between the result of the general election, the introduction of the EU Referendum Bill and the referendum itself. Indeed, we are going to have to continue to do that until we get to the later stage.

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend has, I think, a slight problem here. I understand from remarks made by Members on both sides of the House that when we repeal the 1972 Act, as we intend to do, some will not want to resist it—I see my right hon. Friend nodding her head, for which I am grateful. It is simply not possible for us to be in the single market on the one hand and on the other hand repeal...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: I am not giving way for the moment. I am saying that we cannot both be in the single market and repeal the 1972 Act, whose laws are part of the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. I will give way now to the former Attorney-General.

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: It does not, because I said implicitly that we would not be able to go into the European economic area for that very reason. The British people have spoken in the referendum, and everyone in the Chamber says that they respect the views of the British people, yet at the same time we hear these weasel words that somehow imply that it is possible to leave the European Union, repeal the European...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: I have given way enough for now, and I want to continue with what I have to say. I shall come back to this issue on another occasion, but my position is abundantly clear and correct: we cannot both be in the single market and repeal the 1972 Act. What is the meaning of the answer to the question? It meant that, by the consent of the voters given by the sovereignty of this House, this...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: No, I am not giving way at this stage. We are debating whether under the terms of this motion we will get a decision or a vote on the issue of trade negotiations before the triggering of article 50, so let me make this point, which is at the heart or at the least surface of the debate, about the Labour party and the Labour Government. No decision was taken by the then Labour Government to...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: I am so glad to hear the hon. Gentleman standing up for his constituents so well, which I always admire and try to do myself. In my constituency, about 65% wanted to the leave the EU; the hon. Gentleman referred to Birmingham, where the vote was also to leave. I hope that he will have due regard to what his constituents have said, because they were in favour of coming out. Let me deal with...

Next Steps in Leaving the European Union (10 Oct 2016)

Bill Cash: Has my right hon. Friend observed that some seem to have forgotten that the European Union Referendum Act 2015 gave the right to make the decision? Furthermore, the sovereignty of the people was given the opportunity to make that decision on the occasion of the referendum itself. As regards the repeal Bill, the sovereignty of Parliament will be maintained, because it will be decided in this...
