That is the only responsible thing for a Government to do and that is what we are doing. The House will have a considerable amount of time during the Committee stage, which is coming up shortly, to debate the EU (Withdrawal) Bill. I hope, partly through the re-institution of the Joint...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Devolved Administrations: Brexit (11 Oct 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Devolved Administrations: Brexit (11 Oct 2017)

Damian Green: No, the spirit and letter of the devolution settlement is that there are areas of responsibility for this Parliament and the Westminster Government, and areas of responsibility for the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Assembly and the Northern Ireland Assembly.

We had an agreement with Slough as well, but at the last minute Labour councillors voted against joining the pilot, against the advice of their own officials. As...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Electoral Fraud (11 Oct 2017)

Damian Green: If the hon. Gentleman wants to be taken seriously on this issue, he should listen to the Electoral Commission, which in 2014 urged the Government to adopt the kind of measures that we are adopting now.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (11 Oct 2017)
