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...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Kate Hoey: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Stone (Sir William Cash), who has spent more time scrutinising EU legislation and directives than all of us. I am pleased to have been a member of the European Scrutiny Committee for some years now, although we have often felt very alone. We have been up in the Committee Rooms going through documents after documents, realising that we could...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (7 Sep 2017)

Kate Hoey: The right hon. Gentleman is right: money seems to be the crucial thing it is using in the negotiation. I hope our negotiators will stand up to that and stop allowing the media and others to make every little bit of negotiation into some kind of conflict, saying that it is always the EU negotiators who are doing the right thing and that we are somehow not doing the right thing. I want it to be...

EU Exit Negotiations (5 Sep 2017)

Kate Hoey: As the Secretary of State just said, the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill is a crucial piece of legislation for us to leave the EU. Would he therefore agree that, although people might have difficulties with parts of it that can be discussed in Committee, anyone who votes against the principle on Second Reading is betraying the will of the British people?

Violence in Rakhine State (5 Sep 2017)

Kate Hoey: The Minister keeps repeating that the situation in Burma is very complex; I think we know that. What is really disturbing for those of us who went to listen to Aung San Suu Kyi and were so moved by her speech is that it seems that not only is she not doing anything, but she is not actually saying anything. In view of our relationship with the country and with her, does the Minister not think...

Grenfell Tower (20 Jul 2017)

Kate Hoey: I welcome the Secretary of State’s willingness to keep us all updated over the next few weeks. Does he agree that local authorities and housing associations have a real duty to keep the residents and tenants in those blocks updated? Some local authorities are better than others, and there is huge concern about times when testing has not been reported back or results have not been...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Zimbabwe (11 Jul 2017)

Kate Hoey: What recent assessment he has made of the political and economic situation in Zimbabwe.

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Zimbabwe (11 Jul 2017)

Kate Hoey: I welcome the Minister to his position and wish him every success. Mugabe spent $53 million on private travel overseas last year. At the same time, the United Kingdom is paying proportionately more in aid to that country than to any other country in Africa. Does the Minister think that, with the elections coming next year and Mugabe refusing to implement the 2013 constitution, now is the time...

Exiting the European Union and Global Trade (6 Jul 2017)

Kate Hoey: I share the Secretary of State’s optimism about the future of our country once we leave the European Union. Does he agree that we should break the myth that we need trade deals to trade? Of course trade deals are important, but we can trade without them.

Business of the House (6 Jul 2017)

Kate Hoey: Will the Leader of the House arrange for a statement to clarify who is responsible for dealing with the increasing problem of urban foxes, about which I have had huge numbers of complaints recently? No one takes responsibility. I am not suggesting, Mr Speaker, the setting up of a Vauxhall hunt, but I am seeking to satisfy and help those of my constituents whose lives in their homes are being...

Petition - School Funding in Tonbridge and Malling: Hyde Housing (Lambeth) (29 Mar 2017)

Kate Hoey: I want to use this debate to draw attention to the failure of Hyde Housing Association in my constituency to honour its pledges and promises to the residents of its Lambeth estates and properties. Back in 1999, the tenants and residents of the central Stockwell area of Lambeth voted for a stock transfer from the council to Hyde Southbank Homes, part of the Hyde Group. Some 2,500 homes were...

Petition - School Funding in Tonbridge and Malling: Hyde Housing (Lambeth) (29 Mar 2017)

Kate Hoey: I will finish by saying that those questions have arisen, as I think the Minister understands, and I just want to make sure that the tenants and residents really feel that somebody somewhere is listening to them and doing something about Hyde’s appalling services.

Article 50 (29 Mar 2017)

Kate Hoey: On what is a genuinely historic day for our country, may I pay tribute to the Prime Minister and to the Brexit Ministers for their determination and dedication in getting to this stage today to implement the will of the British people? Does she agree that one area on which we should be able to move forward very quickly in negotiations is getting back control of our fishing grounds?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Zimbabwe (28 Mar 2017)

Kate Hoey: What assessment he has made of whether Zimbabwe’s next election will be conducted freely and fairly.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Zimbabwe (28 Mar 2017)

Kate Hoey: I congratulate the right hon. Gentleman on his honour. Are the Government aware that the opposition parties and human rights groups are all saying that the rigging of elections has now commenced in Zimbabwe? Rural chiefs are being forced to take ZANU-PF cards and food is being used as a weapon, and if we do not get the United Nations, the African Union and particularly the South African...

European Council (14 Mar 2017)

Kate Hoey: I am sure that the Prime Minister will be pleased to know that millions of Labour supporters across the country will be delighted and will share her and my pleasure at the legal decision taken by Parliament. Did the right hon. Lady have any chance at the Council to discuss informally with EU leaders the position of British citizens in other countries? Are those leaders sticking up for our...

Future Flood Prevention (27 Feb 2017)

Kate Hoey: The report states that firefighters provide a vital “first-line service” to flooded areas. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the Government should go further towards making that a statutory duty? That has been asked for throughout the past 12 years, as my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton South West (Rob Marris) said. Why can we not do this? Scotland has done it, Northern...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

Kate Hoey: The public watching need to know that this is not the right place for many of the amendments and new clauses to be debated. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Edgbaston (Ms Stuart) has said, this is not the right Bill.

Housing White Paper (7 Feb 2017)

Kate Hoey: Does the Secretary of State have any special plans to deal with the very difficult situation in inner-city areas, particularly along the river, such as in my constituency, where we have owners coming from way outside this country and leaving flats empty for a very long time? Are the Government not prepared to buy up some of that land themselves and allow local councils to build truly...
