European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Kate Hoey: I am sure that a lot of people are looking at this debate and seeing it as being conducted very much in legal terms, with lawyers versus lawyers. Will the Minister outline in very simple terms why there is no necessity for amendment 7 to be voted on tonight?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Kate Hoey: Will my hon. Friend give way?

King’S College Hospital Foundation Trust (12 Dec 2017)

Kate Hoey: I pay tribute to the staff at King’s, who have looked after so many of my constituents so well. Does the Minister agree that one thing we have to learn from this is that when a trust takes over a failing hospital, the challenges and difficulties can be much more than people have said, and the money given has not always been spent as it should have been? Does he also agree that just...

Brexit Negotiations (11 Dec 2017)

Kate Hoey: This is a little bit of repetition, but to be absolutely clear, will the Prime Minister confirm that leaving the single market—the internal market, as I prefer to call it—and the customs union is not an option, and that anyone who is pushing for that is really still trying to stay in the EU?

Prison Reform and Safety: UK Fishing Industry (7 Dec 2017)

Kate Hoey: Will the hon. Lady reaffirm that, on the day we leave the EU, there will be no more negotiations and no more trading off, and that we will be out of the common fisheries policy so that we can decide for ourselves how we co-operate with other countries over our fishing? Will we take back control of our fishing on the day we leave?

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Kate Hoey: I am sure that millions of members of the public think that our Government are not being tough enough with the European Union, and that in these negotiations, we should say clearly that the EU is stopping the continued co-operation—[Interruption.]

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Dec 2017)

Kate Hoey: The EU is stopping the co-operation, which has been very good, between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. That could continue, but the EU is stopping it. Is it not time that the Government said so?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Retaining Enhanced Protection (15 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: I would not like the public who are listening or watching to take the right hon. Lady to mean that the abuse, nasty remarks and things that are going on are only against people who were remainers. Some of us on the other side of the argument have received a huge amount of abuse, but we sometimes think it is probably easier and better simply to ignore it.

Zimbabwe (15 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: (Urgent Question): Will the Foreign Secretary please make a statement on the situation in Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe (15 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: I thank the Foreign Secretary for his deep and passionate response to what is a very fluid situation. This is clearly a significant tipping point for the power balance in Zimbabwe, and although it is not a coup in the sense that the military want to run the country, it is a coup to ensure that former Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa takes over. Does the Foreign Secretary agree that changing...

Miscellaneous: Northern Ireland Budget Bill (13 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: rose—

Miscellaneous: Northern Ireland Budget Bill (13 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: I thank my party friend and colleague. He said something about Labour being there, and I wondered whether that meant that he was about to announce that, finally, the Labour party will allow people in Northern Ireland not just to join—it has done that only recently—but to put up candidates?

EU Exit Negotiations (13 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: I welcome the Secretary of State’s firm rebuttal of the ridiculous idea that Northern Ireland would be taken out of the rest of the United Kingdom and made to stay in a customs union. Does he also recognise that the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee recently met the head of customs in Switzerland, which is not in the EU, and the one thing that he said over and again was that there was...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Analysis (7 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: I am sure that the public will, on the whole, use common sense and agree that this timing is reasonable. May I ask the Minister to make it very clear that, whatever is in these documents that we will be sitting up all night to read when they are published, it will make no change whatever to the policy of this country—that we are leaving the European Union, the single market and the...

Northern Ireland Update (2 Nov 2017)

Kate Hoey: Does the Secretary of State understand the frustration—indeed, the cynicism—felt by people in Northern Ireland about the word “deadline”? As a result of the changing deadlines, the word really does not mean anything. Is it not time that when Governments set deadlines, they should actually mean something? We have had nine months of parties having discussions and there...

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Kate Hoey: The European Commission talks continually about the need for Her Majesty’s Government to provide certainty and clarity. Is there not one area in which we could provide that certainty and clarity very plainly, today and in our negotiations? Could we not make clear that in March 2019 we will withdraw from the common fisheries policy, take back all our fisheries, and ensure that our...
