Exiting the European Union: Meaningful Vote (11 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: If the right hon. Gentleman followed the debate, he will have noticed that he had complaints about the backstop, as did most of the 164 speakers. Is it therefore not right for the Prime Minister to go and see if she can mend it? If he disagrees with that, why?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018: Statutory Obligations on Ministers (11 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: My hon. Friend referred to the withdrawal agreement Bill that would follow a successful vote for the agreement. Does he agree that that will be a major piece of constitutional legislation covering some important issues such how citizens’ rights are embedded, what the legal base is for laws during the transition period, what the duty on our Supreme Court is in terms of Court of Justice...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (11 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: Is my right hon. Friend aware that one of the most successful companies in our country, Johnson Matthey in my constituency, is committed to having a fair-deal, not a no-deal Brexit because it feels that it is vital that there should be an orderly retreat, not chaos? Does he agree that the Prime Minister’s deal would achieve that?

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: When I spoke in the debate, I made it clear that I was supporting the Prime Minister but had concerns about the backstop and its indefinite nature. Given that the EU has already recognised that this is a temporary arrangement, and our Attorney General has said that it would not be forever and there are means of challenging it legally, does she agree that it would be helpful if our European...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: I pay tribute to the work done by my right hon. Friend in talking to our trading partners around the world in contemplation of having new trade agreements once we are into the implementation period. Does he agree that one of the strengths of the deal that the Prime Minister has negotiated is that we can go into the implementation period, negotiate, ratify and sign the trade deals, ready to...

Business of the House: [3rd Allotted Day] (6 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: I pay tribute to the Prime Minister for her dedication, hard work and resilience in these extremely difficult negotiations with the EU. I start by making it clear that I have always been a supporter of European co-operation. The EU has been an important economic expression of the western alliance. In the 1980s, when countries looked to the west for freedom and security, they were looking...

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: The hon. Gentleman knows that our Committees often ask for papers and sometimes the response to such requests is to say that the documents are legally professionally privileged. In those circumstances, the House tends to use a bit of discretion and common sense and often an agreement is reached about exactly what is to be disclosed. Is not that what is needed here?

Privilege (Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice) (4 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: Will my right hon. and learned Friend give way?

Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Position (3 Dec 2018)

Oliver Heald: I commend my right hon. and learned Friend on the statement he has made. Does he agree that in international law concepts of good faith and of using one’s best endeavours are very important, because right at the heart of international law is the idea of a rules-based system which good countries aspire to? Does he agree that it is therefore important both to the UK and to the EU that they...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services and Social Services: Royston (27 Nov 2018)

Oliver Heald: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the timetable is for the decision by the Cambridge and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group on the options for an NHS and social care hub in Royston; and if he will make a statement.

EU Exit Negotiations (15 Nov 2018)

Oliver Heald: The Prime Minister will be aware that Hertfordshire is fortunate enough to have major businesses in the pharma, aerospace and motor industries. Those businesses rely on just-in-time arrangements for the delivery of parts and have integrated manufacturing across Europe. Does she feel that the agreement she has put before us will be in the best interests of such businesses and all the jobs in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Infected Blood Inquiry (14 Nov 2018)

Oliver Heald: The very comprehensive nature of this inquiry is important, and it is also important that it should have a timeframe that is kept to. Is my right hon. Friend able to give us any idea whether the timetable is still robust and when we can expect to see a final report?

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Oliver Heald: I am grateful—of course, my right hon. and learned Friend and I worked together in the Law Offices. Does he agree that one thing that people may not be aware of is the very wide range of issues of a legal nature, many of them sensitive, that come before a Law Officer? The reason for the precedent and the convention that we do not put advice into the public domain is that it is very...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Oliver Heald: Does my right hon. Friend accept that, in giving advice, the Law Officers are often looking at questions of a very sensitive nature with an international content, that it is not always about a case that is going to come before a court in the UK, and that often it would be very difficult for our country if all the advice and various options and what the Law Officers’ are saying about them...

EU Withdrawal Agreement: Legal Advice (13 Nov 2018)

Oliver Heald: I am very grateful to the shadow Secretary of State for giving way. Does he not accept that with a live negotiation continuing, the Attorney General is giving legal advice about the situation, probably with several options? That is the sort of advice that is never revealed. It is of course different if we get to the point at which a decision has been made and that decision is being presented...
