Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: Whatever the hon. Gentleman may try to infer with regard to the European economic area, it is completely beside the point. The fact is that there is a regulation and, as he knows, it is on the brink of being brought in—I believe it is by the end of this month. All that talk that he has just given us has nothing to do with the issue. The real question is whether the Labour party is going...

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: While, of course, I entirely endorse the Secretary of State’s sentiment, there is an issue regarding British ports. It is a big issue, but I will not go into it now, as I am hoping to catch your eye, Mr Deputy Speaker. However, there are some serious questions still outstanding around qualified majority voting, as I am sure the Secretary of State knows.

Article 50 (7 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the European Union Referendum Act 2015 and the Lisbon treaty Act of 2008 are both constitutional Acts—sovereign Acts—of the first order? Does he also agree that not only did the 2015 Act expressly and clearly give the voters the absolute right to leave the EU, but the 2008 Act also clearly intended that the Government would give notice to leave...

Leaving the Eu: Financial Services (3 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Leaving the Eu: Financial Services (3 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: In the light of the hon. Gentleman’s condemnation of the vote to leave, will the hon. Gentleman remind us how his constituents voted in the referendum?

Leaving the Eu: Financial Services (3 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: Does the hon. and learned Lady recognise—I imagine she might—that there is a certain circularity in her argument? It is not surprising that the legal profession inside the European Union, which is concerned about European law, would want to protect that particular part of their activities. She could perhaps be a little more generous in understanding that those who want to leave...

Leaving the Eu: Financial Services (3 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: There seems to me to be a great deal of overstatement and exaggeration in this arena. The media have tended to overstate difficulties in this area to a very significant extent. This is about confidence. For nearly 400 years, up to our entry to the EU under the European Communities Act 1972, the United Kingdom was able to run one of the most effective—if not the most...

Leaving the Eu: Financial Services (3 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: The problem that the hon. Gentleman has perhaps not taken quite on board is that because of the European Communities Act there is a legislative requirement for us to accept those rules. Outside, we will, I hope, be able to benefit not only the United Kingdom but the EU, as I will come on to in a moment. We only have to look at places such as Singapore and Hong Kong to understand that one does...

Leaving the Eu: Financial Services (3 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: I am sure my hon. Friend is aware that there is not a single market in insurance, and that 87% of all insurers operate through subsidiaries in the EU, rather than in branches dependent on passporting?

Business of the House (3 Nov 2016)

Bill Cash: The Government have rightly decided to appeal to the Supreme Court. Does my right hon. Friend appreciate that the vote to leave the European Union was fundamentally based on a sovereign Act of Parliament that expressly transferred the decision from Parliament to the voters of the United Kingdom as a whole?

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

Bill Cash: I know that the Minister is only using those things as a backdrop to the points he is going to deal with in a moment on the specifics that my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Mrs Gillan) so ably put forward. Will he accept, however, that report after report has challenged the assumptions on which he has just made his remarks? Although the vote in the House of Commons...

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?
