Angela Eagle: The Government, like a third-rate conjurer, hope that if they produce a range of examples for scenarios that are not going to happen, such as no deal or Chequers, somehow we will be taken in by it. Is it not about time the Government do what the House asks them to do, whether on legal advice publication or giving us the facts to make the decision, so that this House can take back control on...
Angela Eagle: In the Prime Minister’s lexicon, is “smooth and orderly” the new “strong and stable”?
Angela Eagle: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many prisoners gave birth in prison without a midwife present in the last year for which information is available.
Angela Eagle: Will the Prime Minister now admit that extending the aspirations into a political declaration that is 19 pages longer than the original series of aspirations is not actually a deal?

Angela Eagle: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. I speak as a non-lawyer. Can you confirm that although this is a Government who do not vote when they think they are going to lose, they nevertheless have a duty to honour the motion passed by the House, because it is not just an expression of the Opposition’s view but effective?
Angela Eagle: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?
Angela Eagle: rose—
Angela Eagle: rose—
Angela Eagle: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for giving way. Does he agree that the unprecedented nature of the meaningful vote that this House will have in the event of a withdrawal agreement being made makes it imperative for those of us who have to make that decision to have access to the Attorney General’s best view and his legal advice as to what the implications of that decision are?
