EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Bill Cash: I am glad my hon. Friend acknowledges that. I do believe in peace. I do believe in good relations. What really troubles me, however, is that the majority voting system and the decisions taken behind closed doors are so manifestly undemocratic that they are completely impossible to justify. It has become a kind of dictatorship behind closed doors. We in this House make our decisions based on...

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016: Points of Order (8 Jun 2016)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. In reply to my hon. Friend the Member for South Dorset (Richard Drax), the Prime Minister made an assertion on the question of treaty change.

Business of the House (26 May 2016)

Bill Cash: At the heart of the European Union referendum is the question of democracy and the democratic deficit. May I draw attention to the European Scrutiny Committee report that has come out this morning on the lack of a democratic system in the Council of Ministers?
