EU Referendum Leaflet — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (9 May 2016)

Bill Cash: It is a question not only of whether the renegotiation is legally binding, but of whether it is legally binding and irreversible. It is not.

EU Referendum Leaflet — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (9 May 2016)

Bill Cash: Of course, my hon. Friend knows that that is happening in pursuance of a legal duty introduced into the House of Lords, which became part of our legislation through ping-pong. Is he also aware that I tabled an amendment calling for accuracy and impartiality in that information, which the Minister for Europe, who is here today, told me there certainly would be? Do we not expect a proper answer...

Dublin System: Asylum (4 May 2016)

Bill Cash: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for St Albans (Mrs Main) not only on securing the urgent question, but on the manner in which she conducted her analysis. She was, of course, completely right. The European Scrutiny Committee is looking at this very matter and we will be talking about it this afternoon. Would the Minister be good enough to give us an assurance that, if we so decide,...

European Convention on Human Rights: Uk Membership (26 Apr 2016)

Bill Cash: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that our fight against terrorism and excessive immigration has been persistently undermined by not only the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg but the European Court of Justice adjudicating on the charter of fundamental rights, and that the only answer is to leave the European Union?

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Apr 2016)

Bill Cash: rose—

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Apr 2016)

Bill Cash: In the context of the European side of the global question to which the Minister has referred, is he aware of the substantial deficit in the last quarter figures that the Office for National Statistics has just published in respect of our relations with Europe, which is causing a lot of difficulty for the United Kingdom economy? Last year, we had a deficit on current account...

Government Referendum Leaflet (11 Apr 2016)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend must accept not only that any reasonable person would regard this leaflet as propaganda—as is already being said in all the national newspapers and in blogs right the way across the land—but that it is unfair to the British taxpayer, who is having to bear the burden of the leaflet’s cost. Will he please explain to me personally why he has broken the...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Migration: EU Countries (29 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he will provide an estimate of (a) the total level of immigration from other EU member states and (b) the annual number of people coming to settle in the UK from other EU member states which would trigger the activation of the proposed alert and safeguard emergency brake mechanism; and what discussions he has had with his counterparts in...

Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: I wish to put on the record again the position with regard to the single market, and I would really like the Minister, for whom I have a lot respect, to answer my question, which I have put over and over again. It is based on figures from the Office for National Statistics and the House of Commons Library. There is no disputing the fact that we run a trade deficit on current account...

Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: It has been said in the past that the House of Commons is the only lunatic asylum that is run by the inmates, but I think we pale into insignificance compared with the European Union. This just does not work. I ask the Minister to make a note on the piece of paper in front of him to remember to answer my question relating to that deficit and surplus issue, because every time I raise it, I get...

Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: I can only refer to the fact that these are ONS figures. They are endorsed and verified by the House of Commons Library, and I will leave my point at that. The argument on page 19 moves forward to a suggestion that any “new relationship which gives the UK…access to the single market that it needs”— that assertion continues to be made— “would involve...

Scotland Bill: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: I have already made my point about the inaccuracy embedded in the report and need not repeat any of that; I am sure that the Minister heard what I said. In a way, it is an impossible situation for him, but that does not remedy the inaccuracy and I need to hear what the Government propose to do. It may be inconvenient or fortuitous, but the reality is that it is there. The approval by...

Scotland Bill: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: My right hon. Friend is, of course, right about that, as he really understands all these things. There are massive problems with the whole of this European project, not only because of the inconsistencies but because of the laying down of requirements and obligations that are, in effect, disregarded when it suits certain countries but not when it suits others. The performance required under...

Scotland Bill: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: In the light of the strictures that the hon. Gentleman has imposed on his former Prime Minister, may I just mention that the national debt, which is currently regarded as being about £1.5 trillion, rises to between £3 trillion and £4 trillion if, for instance, Network Rail and the pension liabilities are taken into account? Does the hon. Gentleman accept that that is the real...

Scotland Bill: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: I know my hon. Friend listened to what I said in my point of order, so I would like to address the point to him personally. Section 5 states: “Her Majesty’s Government shall report to Parliament for its approval”— on the basis that it is accurate— “an assessment of the medium-term economic and budgetary position”. It is absolutely clear, unless he can...

Scotland Bill: Section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993 (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: I just want to put this to bed. I have made the point that the documentation cannot be accurate—unless my hon. Friend is going to tell me the Government have changed the figures since publication—but there is a second point. It appears from the figures, which can be a bit confusing for some people, that there is a black hole. Some people allege it is as much as £4 billion and...

Scotland Bill: Clause 3 — Elections (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Under section 5 of the European Communities (Amendment) Act 1993—the Maastricht Act of Parliament —there is a requirement on the Government: “Before submitting the information required in implementing Article 103(3) of the Treaty…to report to Parliament for its approval an assessment of the medium term economic and budgetary position in...

Scotland Bill: Clause 3 — Elections (23 Mar 2016)

Bill Cash: As the Minister knows, that provision concerns convergence criteria, and stability and growth factors. The trouble is that the document we have been given, entitled, “2014-15 Convergence Programme for the United Kingdom: submitted in line with the Stability and Growth pact”, contains in pages 141 to 145 a detailed assessment of the position on welfare caps and other spending,...
