Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Schedule 1 - “Assimilated law”: consequential amendments (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: After 38 years in this House, I simply say a profound thank you to the British electorate—the 17 million who voted to leave the European Union in the referendum and endorsed that in the general election of 2019. I congratulate the Government, the Ministers and all the people in this House who have supported the idea of leaving the European Union. Above all else, I thank the British electorate.

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: Does my hon. Friend, in the light of what she has just said, recall “Project Fear”, with George Osborne and others saying, for example, how many hundreds of thousands of unemployed we would have, how the financial markets would dissolve, how the City of London would become a ghost town, and all that sort of nonsense? Does she remember all that, and where are we now?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: On a small point that was just raised, may I mention that the Online Safety Bill is not retained EU law? There is a law in the European Union, but our Bill does not relate to that.

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. So much for that. Our system has relied uniquely on a large bench of high-quality, independent judges, who address points that are brought before them when people or businesses apply to the courts for remedies for perceived damage or misconduct. Through our traditional decision-making process, which must be interpreted in accordance with what is precisely set...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: I jib very strongly at the suggestion of avoiding the procedures whereby these laws were made. It is not just a question of their origin, because it is the EU and some people do not like it very much. It is rather because of the manner in which the procedures operate.

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: Having endured the last 40 minutes, I am bound to say, as Chairman of the European Scrutiny Committee, that although I will be relatively brief there are important matters that need to be discussed. I will raise them and give the House the opportunity to reflect on what I have to say. This Bill was passed by this House without amendment. There were no amendments on Second Reading or in the...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: I am grateful for that intervention, because nothing could have been more obvious than the fact that the hon. Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston, and indeed many Opposition Members, simply do not have a clue about how the operations of the European Union function. I will deal with them in a minute, as the hon. Gentleman will find out—I would be interested if he would like to intervene and...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill: New Clause 1 - “Assimilated law” (18 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: No. In a nutshell, every single law that goes to the Council of Ministers, which is the ultimate law-making body, does so by a majority vote of the 27 member stated behind closed doors, without even so much as a transcript and in total secrecy. Indeed, I had an exchange with the noble Lord Clarke of Nottingham on this matter when he was still in this House in 2017. He made it abundantly clear...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on redress for individual complaints (17 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: Is my hon. Friend aware that Ian Russell has pointed out that 26% of young people who present at hospital with self-harm and suicide attempts have accessed such predatory, irresponsible and wilful online content?

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on redress for individual complaints (17 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is an assault not just on the physical person, but on their minds? That is what is going on, and it is destroying them.

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on redress for individual complaints (17 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: In a nutshell, we must be able to threaten tech bosses with jail. There is precedent for that—jail sentences for senior managers are commonplace for breaches of duties across a great range of UK legislation. That is absolutely and completely clear, and as a former shadow Attorney General, I know exactly what the law is on this subject. I can say this: we must protect our children and...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on redress for individual complaints (17 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: I know my time is up; I just want to say this.

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on redress for individual complaints (17 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: Would my hon. Friend not also like to say that the NSPCC has been magnificent in supporting us?

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on redress for individual complaints (17 Jan 2023)

Bill Cash: I thought I might mention to my right hon. and learned Friend that the written ministerial statement, which is now available to the public, makes it clear that useful and constructive discussions have taken place. Much of what he is saying is not necessarily applicable to the state of affairs we are now faced with.

Migration and Economic Development (19 Dec 2022)

Bill Cash: Although the High Court ruled that the Rwanda policy is lawful, as has been said there were only eight asylum claimants. Those cases have all been set aside by the Court, which said in its ruling that the circumstances of each claimant had not been considered properly. Latest Home Office website figures currently show that more than 160,000 individual cases are outstanding. Furthermore, as...

Illegal Immigration (13 Dec 2022)

Bill Cash: First, does my right hon. Friend accept that the legislation that he has announced is overdue? Secondly, it needs expressly to differentiate economic and illegal migrants from genuine refugees. The only way that can be done in law is through bypassing the notwithstanding formula in the European convention on human rights to ensure that we can achieve the objectives that he has set out. That...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Notices to deal with terrorism content or CSEA content (or both) (5 Dec 2022)

Bill Cash: I have raised this on a number of occasions in the past few hours, as have my hon. Friend the Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Miriam Cates) and the right hon. Member for Barking (Dame Margaret Hodge). Will the Minister be good enough to ensure that this matter is thoroughly looked at and, furthermore, that the needed clarification is thought through?

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Notices to deal with terrorism content or CSEA content (or both) (5 Dec 2022)

Bill Cash: My hon. Friend knows that I too take a great interest in this, and I am glad that the Government have agreed to continue discussions on this question. Is she aware that the personal criminal liability for directors flows from the corporate criminal liability in the company of which they are a director, and that their link to the criminal act itself, even if the company has not been or is not...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Notices to deal with terrorism content or CSEA content (or both) (5 Dec 2022)

Bill Cash: Many years ago, in the 1970s, I was much involved in the Protection of Children Bill, which was one of the first steps in condemning and making illegal explicit imagery of children and their involvement in the making of such films. We then had the broadcasting Acts and the video Acts, and I was very much involved at that time in saying that we ought to prohibit such things in videos and so...

Finance Bill (28 Nov 2022)

Bill Cash: During the autumn statement, I raised the point about High Speed 2 with the Chancellor, and I also wrote to the Chief Secretary to the Treasury and, indeed, to the Chair of the Treasury Committee, my hon. Friend the Member for West Worcestershire (Harriett Baldwin). According to the Office for National Statistics yesterday, annual inflation in the infrastructure sector was 18.1% in...
