European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Date of exit from the European Union (14 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: Does the right hon. Gentleman accept that the House of Lords, which is of course unelected and which itself decided to pass the European Union Referendum Act 2015, really has no justification whatsoever for attempting to obstruct, delay or undermine this Bill?

EU Exit Negotiations (13 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: Will the Secretary of State confirm that any such withdrawal Bill will take place after the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill has been enacted—in other words after 29 March 2019?

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. My right hon. Friend the Member for Broxtowe (Anna Soubry), I think somewhat inadvertently, made a reference to my interest in EFTA and the model of jurisdiction. What I actually said on 4 July 2017 was by reference to the jurisdiction of the European Court and the EFTA court, exploring whether we could find a viable and proper way to achieve...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: rose—

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: May I refer my hon. Friend to the remark he made about the Labour party looking at this issue both ways? The Labour party did, in fact, vote against the principle of the Bill, which includes the repeal of the European Communities Act 1972, by virtue of which all the legislation and the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice come into effect.

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend acknowledge that, as time progressed, the right hon. Lady to whom she has referred also said that she thought that we had made a mistake in joining the single market and repudiated it, because she felt that she had been misled?

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: For a free trade agreement to be possible after Brexit, the interim period must involve no membership of the EEA, the customs union or EFTA, because that would remove the freedom we need to negotiate with third countries. That includes any period in the EEA, being party to the EEA agreement, like EFTA states, or a bilateral Swiss-style agreement. The EEA essentially means membership of the...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: The Norwegian Government have consistently made it clear that their position is to stay in but, in practice, the trend of attitudes in Norway is increasingly moving against that position. I was at a conference only last week at which a young Norwegian leader of the people’s movement made it clear that more than 70% of young people in Norway want to get out of the EEA and do not want to...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: I will certainly give way to—the hon. Lady?

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: Right hon., then.

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: Indeed, and I entirely accept that that is what the position was at that point in time. The argument has moved on, and the reality is that the mandate from the British people is clear. This House passed the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act 2017 by 499 to 110, or thereabouts, and furthermore the Second Reading of the repeal Bill was passed by a majority, and therefore we will...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: The short answer is that we have a mandate. It has been made absolutely clear, and the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act has been passed by this House. The repeal Bill has yet to be passed, but the decision on Second Reading has made the House’s position absolutely clear to the British people. We are repealing the European Communities Act and withdrawing from the European...

European Economic Area: Uk Membership (6 Nov 2017)

Bill Cash: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that according to the president of the EFTA court, to whom he has just referred, that court follows the judgments of the European Court of Justice almost exclusively?

European Council (23 Oct 2017)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. Friend accept that it is a potential bear trap if the European Court is directly involved in any implementation period? Its case law asserts its supremacy over our Parliament and our courts and includes a commitment to the charter of fundamental rights and political integration.

EU Exit Negotiations (17 Oct 2017)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend has said that in the discussions we have also explored ways in which we can fully implement the withdrawal treaty in UK law. Does that suggest he has in mind legislative enactment of the withdrawal treaty? When he talks about the role of the UK courts, does he mean that the enactment will be overseen by our courts, and not by the European Court of Justice?

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend’s Florence speech stressed the fundamental principles of UK democracy and accountability in this House, upon which all else depends. The Opposition voted against the withdrawal and repeal Bill, and the repeal of the European Communities Act 1972. Does she agree that our voters have every right to hear a public explanation from the Opposition—remainers and...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: 2nd Day (11 Sep 2017)

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

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Bill Cash: In British constitutional history, there are few examples of Bills of such historic significance as this. Since the mid-1980s, I have been arguing for our legislative sovereignty in respect of EU legislation, even under the premiership of Margaret Thatcher, as was seen in my amendment of 12 June 1986. Even then, I was not allowed to debate it, let alone move it. Then we had Maastricht, Nice,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Bill Cash: I am so glad that my right hon. and learned Friend has made that point, because I would like to endorse what he was saying earlier—I would like to see proceedings extended beyond 5 o’clock tonight. I will not have the opportunity to make a speech as long as that which I made on Second Reading of the Maastricht Bill—I think it lasted something like two hours—but for the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Bill Cash: Absolutely. That is the cardinal principle. The Henry VIII arrangement in this Bill is a mirror image in reverse of what was done in 1972 to absorb all the European legislation into our own law and apply it so that it could never be changed. It cannot be amended—there is the acquis communitaire, and it cannot be repealed until we have this Bill. That is the point. I ought to add that it...
