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...

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: Will the Minister give way?

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: rose—

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: rose—

European Union (Approvals) Bill (4 Jul 2017)

Bill Cash: I am much encouraged not only by the fact that the Minister is giving way but by what my hon. Friend the Member for Bridgwater and West Somerset (Mr Liddell-Grainger) said. It may be that we are no longer brothers and sisters in Europe, but we are cousins. Therefore to that extent we will continue to seek to maintain good relations with the EU, despite the fact that we are absolutely going...

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Bill Cash: Would my right hon. Friend be kind enough to give way, just before he does so?

Brexit and Foreign Affairs (26 Jun 2017)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend not think that those, such as the Liberal Democrats and others, who want to remain in the European Union should ask their constituents whether they really want the United Kingdom indefinitely to remain part of an undemocratic system that is governed by majority voting that takes place behind closed doors and that is moving towards integration with a common defence...

European Council (26 Jun 2017)

Bill Cash: Given Brexit and our vital red lines on the European Court, and the repeal of the European Communities Act 1972, does my right hon. Friend agree that a reasonable framework to protect reciprocal citizens’ rights while making no concession at all on preserving our own Westminster jurisdiction and our own judicial sovereignty would be a tribunal system such as I outlined in the House last...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Bill Cash: I support the Gracious Speech, except the proposal for a Bill on HS2, which I shall oppose, as I have done so far. I will support my constituents relentlessly on that matter. I turn to Brexit. [Laughter.] What a surprise! Leaving the European Union is a given, even for my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr Clarke). It follows that we will leave the single market and...
