European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: May I just record that some of us who voted leave joined my right hon. Friend on this point? We have always had a good policy. We know, in looking after these children, that there will always be abuses, but they are far outweighed by the importance of looking after the most vulnerable.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: I hope that all of us who support Brexit wish the UK to have access to the single market on the terms we have now, with the conditions about regulation that will follow from that. A key part of the campaign was that we should have control of our borders and not be subjected to foreign courts. Does my right hon. and learned Friend accept that we might have to pay for the privilege of gaining...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way on that very point?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Commencement and short title (13 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that, though it was fun yesterday, the truth is that, if this House wants a meaningful vote, there are ways and means by which we will have a meaningful vote irrespective of what the legislation says?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: Two great dramas are being played out. The Father of the House asked how we, as part of a representative system of government, should implement a referendum result. There has also been a drama on this side of the House. Two thirds of Labour constituencies voted to leave—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: I am not disputing that. If my hon. Friend wants to intervene, he can do so and give me another minute. I am not trying to impugn anybody’s motives, but when we signed up to the referendum, rather than the normal four sides of A4 of additions—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: For the referendum, it was not four sides, but a small telephone directory of people—they are generally talked about in a disdainful way—who were saying they had nowhere else to go. My real concern is what happens to representing those key Labour interests. I hope that there will be those further discussions and, in the process of coming to a good resolution and ensuring that the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: Some people in this House have been quite clear that they want to prevent Brexit. Others disguise that fact with the very careful construction of terms. In the Lords, where there are no constituencies to vote Members out—sadly—people have been more honest. Surely my hon. Friend was wrong to say that there was nobody in the Lords who was saying that this was actually a “stop...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: I hope that our Whip’s Office is kinder than the Government’s Whip’s Office will be in getting this measure through. Mr Speaker, I hope to catch your eye in a moment to talk about what the effects on the Labour vote will be in those constituencies that voted to leave, but on this crucial issue, is it not true that if we pass what the Lords want us to do, we, as Aneurin Bevan...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: UK Defence Industry (11 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: When the Minister sits down after this series of questions, will he remind the Secretary of State, who I see is not listening, that he has been to a number of yards that will compete with Cammell Laird, but not to Cammell Laird itself? When he is deciding on the shipbuilding programme, he needs to be seen to be fair as well as awarding us orders.

Offences Against the Person Act 1861 (5 Jun 2018)

Frank Field: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that if this is such an important issue for Northern Ireland, it had best get its Assembly up and running quickly, otherwise we will increasingly find that this Chamber decides issues on behalf of Northern Ireland that should legitimately be decided by the Assembly itself? My vote is that we should never put women in the position of seeking back-street...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: PIP: Back-payments (21 May 2018)

Frank Field: As PIP is the entrance to mobility allowance, will the Government join the Treasury Committee and the Work and Pensions Committee in asking for a full National Audit Office inquiry into what is ostensibly a really good benefit?

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Good Work Plan (1 May 2018)

Frank Field: What progress his Department has made on implementing the recommendations of the Taylor review of modern working practices.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Good Work Plan (1 May 2018)

Frank Field: Given the work that the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee and the Work and Pensions Committee have done on the gig economy, will the Government undertake to ensure that, when they introduce a Bill based on the Taylor report, we will have a chance to stage pre-legislative hearings?
