Exiting the European Union (Sanctions): Section 1 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 (9 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: Has my right hon. Friend seen the excellent article in the business section of The Daily Telegraph today, in which several very senior German people, including Mr Verheugen and others, have made it categorically clear that the failure of these negotiations is the fault of all the participants, including the EU itself?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend is making an extremely good speech. Is he aware that, as I have been informed today, the withdrawal agreement and implementation Bill, which is supposed to put this appalling withdrawal agreement into domestic law, is around 120 pages long? That is what we are heading for in the next couple of weeks.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: So he will, Mr Speaker. Cromwell continued: “Depart, I say…In the name of God, go!” As far as I am concerned, that applies to many Members of Parliament who have reversed their votes and who have repudiated the vote of the British people and denied our democracy.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: One last remark, Mr Speaker. I trust that the hon. Member for Wallasey will reflect on the fact that, as far as I am aware, she voted for the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act 2017 when this House passed it by 499 votes to about 120. That is a fact—[Interruption.] But perhaps she did not, so she can tell me about that.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: In conclusion, I would simply say that I, too, think that the Prime Minister has made a hash of it. It makes no difference to me. I have said it repeatedly, and I will say it again and again.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: May I just point out to the hon. Gentleman that the European Union Referendum Act 2015, which this House passed by six to one, deliberately and exclusively gave the people the right, by sovereign Act of Parliament, to make the decision themselves? That was us giving the people the right to make that decision, and the hon. Gentleman and others are now trying to retrieve that decision from the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

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

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: Did the right hon. Lady notice—I watched the proceedings in the House of Lords—the continuous criticisms of this appalling Bill? They said it was a “bad Bill”, “a very bad Bill”—[Interruption.] Also, by the way, it is not going to prevent no deal and furthermore, there is nothing that requires, as a matter of law, the avoidance of no deal.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: I completely repudiate what has been said by the right hon. Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper). The reality is that this outrage is the equivalent of tossing a hand grenade into our constitutional arrangements, given the vital importance of the vote that was delivered by the British people in the referendum. It constitutes a deliberate attempt to undermine that...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: I must admit that if I were to, there would be quite a lot of fireworks in the European Parliament—I can assure the hon. Gentleman of that. I have no doubt whatever that what those involved are doing by creating circumstances in which the European elections could take place is not only to undermine the vote that was taken in June 2016, but, in addition, to humiliate this country by virtue...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: They most emphatically are, because, unlike what has been going on in this House, which is a perversion and a distortion of our constitutional arrangements, the very essence of our position is to defend democracy, to defend the vote that was taken by the British people, and to stand up for the repeal of the European Communities Act 1972, which was passed and is the law of the land. That is...

Business of the House (8 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: Will the Leader of the House confirm that the Bill currently going through the House of Lords is the biggest dog’s dinner of any Bill we have seen in recent times? Are the Government opposed to the Bill? Will they do everything to defeat it?

Brunei: Loan Charge (4 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. I just wondered what was going on. Is it hot air that is escaping from in here?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: That is a very good question, because it may well be after exit day—on my proposals. That is the point. I am proposing amendments intended to provide that democratic element, which is needed by the people of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: I want to make some trouble. The people of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland might well have strong interest in the extent to which they are involved in this process. My amendment is a means to provide them with that opportunity. I will not contradict what the hon. Gentleman says. Under our constitutional settlement, there is a Scottish Parliament, a Northern Ireland Assembly and a...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: My hon. Friend—a good friend—is making very good points. This also gives rise to the question of scrutiny, which he mentioned. My Committee will undoubtedly have to try to work out how to deal with these scrambled eggs; and how will the House of Lords deal with this, given that it has disallowed Standing Order No. 72? Will it truncate its business to such an extent that it will not be...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: I would love to give way to the person who generated this rubbish.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend says that I have made one serious point, but he is in serious trouble. Every time he gets up and starts interpreting his Bill, that is likely to be taken into account if there is any judicial review of any of the provisions, as enacted. As all Ministers ought to know—he is the Minister in charge of this day and the various other things that he seemed to have...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: With respect to you, Dame Eleanor, the Bill’s stages have been truncated. You know what I am talking about. It has been rushed through. Not only is the Bill an abomination in its own right, but it is gravely unconstitutional and offends Standing Order No. 14 and so many other conventions, so I am not going to fail make the points that need to be made. I am so sorry, but I these points must...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill: Duties in connection with Article 50 extension (3 Apr 2019)

Bill Cash: It is axiomatic, and it goes to the very heart of what we are leaving and how we are leaving. The idea that we would hold European elections, which, but for my proposed amendment, are liable to take place, makes me think that this House really ought to vote for new clause 7. I therefore urge the House to consider it as an important, sensible amendment. [Interruption.] I see that my right hon....
